    I'd like to start a thread to see who has the largest game collection. It would be cool to see who reigns amongst this massive community as king of collectors. It would also be interesting for us as members to see what neat nostalgic stuff is floating around our community. Maybe (with luck), this will get stickied and turn out to be an amazing group of posts.

    Guidelines:
    1> They have to be physical games that you own. No roms, disk images, or downloadable games (i.e. Steam, Live, PSN).
    2> Pictures are not required, but are gratefully appreciated.
    3> Please do not create pointless posts, or disrespect other members. This is meant to be productive.
    4> Relish at the library of marvels that not only tie us together as a community, but also in their own respect are an art form that we have all grown to cherish.

    I definitely know I'm not gonna win, but at last count a week ago here's what I have:
    6 PS2 games
    3 PSX games (Spryo series FTW)
    4 GB/C games
    6 GBA games
    5 SNES games
    3 N64 games
    16 360 games
    6 PS3 games
    Probably 8 or 9 Wii games (my older bro has my Wii now unfortunately)
    and...if we're counting PC game discs, like 2 big binders full of those. (Though I'll admit they're all really old >.>)

    so 57-58 games total not counting the pc games. I have a ton of disc images of PC games I used to own but had no room for storage wise plus various downloadables. I also used to have 8 or 9 DS games but I just dumped them and gave them to a friend.

    I have gone through a game and console selling spree so 4 wii games, 3 DS games, 5 3ds games and 4 Vita.

    I sold everything, my GC collection was last to go. I chose food over four swords adventures

    Honestly do not know how many games I have.... I have been collecting for almost 30 years.... If we are just talking console games that narrows it down a bit but still too many to easily count.

    I have a tendency to count the Vic 20 and C64 and TI99/4A as consoles too at least the carts for them.... then my Odyssey 2 is that a computer or a console? (I do have the extended basic cart and voice module... lol)

    Impossible to put a number on how many games I have, hell at this point in time I am not sure how many machines I have, many of them stored in boxes with the games being either in separate boxes or in the same box if the console didn't have that many (VirtualBoy fits nicely in one box with most of the games released.)

    Basicly the same here.
    But now when I buy a game, I look for quality. In the past I could'nt care less, just had to have it....
    Also with all emulators nowadays, It's hard to hook up those old consoles.
    I case of usb loading this has also helped somewhat in making a choice in games I buy. ( try before you buy ) Though some I still buy blindly.

    Puny 7 games for my 3ds.
    I had more for my wii and PSP...until I sold them and most of my games are on Steam,so I probably have the smallest retail games collection. :glare:

    Let's see:
    12 pc games
    6 Wii games
    8 GB/GBC games (7 of which are Pokemon games)
    8 GBA games (5 of which are Pokemon games)
    1 PSP game (KH BBS)
    7 DS games (5 of which are Pokemon games)
    3 PS Vita games
    6 3DS games

    So 51 games (wow that's more than I thought I had).

    That's not all games I ever owned though. Never had much money in the past so I always had to sell older games to get new ones.
    I've only started collecting about 2 months ago with the money from my job over the summer. I expect for 3 GB and 5 GBA games to arrive soon (all of them Mario games).

    My collection was once glorious. Systems stretching back as far as the SNES, all the way to the 360 and 3DS, with dozens, sometimes hundreds of games for each. Then I got robbed and now I have my PS2 and a few games, my 3DS and six games, and my PSP with virtually nothing barring the hacked files. Life sucks sometimes.

    my game collection would take all night to list but i will name a few consoles that i have a lot of games for.

    ps2 around 200 legit games
    gamecube around 50
    ps1 around 100
    original gameboy around 40
    ps3 around 120
    dreamcast around 20

    i think that is the main ones that i have a lot of games on.

    consoles i have
    ps2 slim x2
    psone (yellowed)
    psp 2000 and go
    ps3 slim x2
    wii
    wii u
    dreamcast x2 (both gone yellow)
    gamecube
    xbox 1
    ds lite
    dsi xl
    3ds XL
    nes
    snes
    master system (1st model)
    megadrive model 2
    sega saturn
    n64
    gameboy x2
    original gba
    gameboy sp
    gameboy colour
    and game & watch

    just so that you can see roughly what my game collection is like.

    been there, done that, i had to start my game collection again, police did fuck all to help either, i did beat up the prick who robbed me though but it was too late to recover the lot because he had sold it on for his drug habit, my current game collection i would never sell, i wouldn't want to go through all that stress again, most of the stuff i have is irreplaceable and hard to find now.

    same, i like the convenience of emulators because you don't have to hook anything up and everything is up-scaled e.t.c my consoles just sit there and look pretty LOL, plus i don't have the room to hook everything up even if i wanted too, just recently i had to put away my xbox 1 because i didn't have room for it anymore i had to make space for my wii u. oh and i stopped buying games on impulse because i don't have anymore room to store them anymore, my ps2 collection already takes up 2 big cupboards, there are times where i would look around second hand shops like charity shops and find bargains (can't resist) but most of the time i just walk on by now.

    had to do that in the past a few times and i always regret it, i am sure you feel the same i don't sell my games anymore to the likes of game (that would give me pennies for it anyway) that is why my collection is so big now.

    oh and happy new year to all :D

    I dropped all Sony products from my game collection. I sold my PS1 & PS2 with all the games and accessories for $600 years ago. I still respect Sony but don't play their systems for games anymore.

    Just out of curiosity, what games for gamecube, gba, ds, 3ds, wii and psp did you keep (or get, I don't know).
    Since the jump to the amount of games for the PS, PS2 and PS3 seems so big.
