I decided I'm not going to bother to try and get a "complete" collection of NES games since that's not really possible and also expensive and I don't got that kind of room. I figured the black non-licensed Tengen carts are at least achievable. Besides Tetris that is.
On the 11th I got these:
* MS. Pac-Man (black tengen)
* Pac-Man - Nintendo licensed/grey - tengen
* Rad Racer
* Defender II
Apparently there were a couple licensed Tengens. But they're not necessarily more rare or worth any more. There's a "video game historian" series on youtube with some really great info on Tengen. It was actually just re-branded Atari. Who published some Sega games. Yes, Sega [arcade] games for NES
I was also going to quest for my collection of games from childhood. What I can remember anyway.
Then I came up with a "what I'd like to own" list. Which has grown really long.
There's 19 total unlicensed Tengens (I have 6 so far). A collection which seems attainable (except-for-tetris).
I remembered 15 total (none are Tengen) from childhood. Gryomite and Rad Racer are the only ones I have purchased so far. I should mention I had SMB 1 and duck hunt as two separate game carts. So I could cheat and get a combo cart. Also, I'm just assuming I owned zelda for NES. I don't actually remember owning it. So it might be 13 total. Although zelda would obviously be on the like-to-own list.
The "would like to own" total has grown to 32 games (which includes some series as separate listings).
I only own a total of 12 NES games right now.
I have a few SNES games, like 2 Genesis, 1 master system game...
I seem to mostly find PS2. Because as I've mentioned before people some practically pay you to take them. They're that plentiful and cheap/worthless. Same with original xbox even though those play in a 360.
I have a total of 79 PS2 games now (assuming my spreadsheet is accurate). And none of them are sports games
. If I got sports games I could double that number in a week
