[Official] OCN Retro - The Overclock.net Retrogaming Club - Page 8

post #71 of 2140
I'd love to join the club. I've got a small collection of retro video games and systems. I included a couple photo's of my room right now, sorry it's a bit messy. I've got a decent size Zelda collection, but still have lots more to get for it. I've also got all the Canadian/US version of Mario Kart! Listed are the systems I currently have; I've also got new cap kits to recap my Sega Genesis systems, but have to find someone to do it for me as I have no electronic soldering skills at all.

Canadian/US systems
NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U
Sega Master System, Genesis (v1 & 2), Sega CD, Sega 32X, Sega Dreamcast
Playstation 1, PSOne, Playstation 2 (fat & slim), Playstation 3
Xbox, Xbox 360
Atarti 2600, 5200, 7800, Flashback 1 & 2
Colecovision, Commodore Vic 20

Handhelds
Gameboy original, Gameboy Colour, DSi, 3DS XL

Japan systems
Famicom AV, Super Famicom, Sega Saturn

That is a most excellent collection. Adding you now.

I am not the biggest Zelda fan (Link to the Past was my favorite and after that one, I stopped caring, OoT never did it for me), but I have to say, that Zelda display is phenomenal. That must have cost a fortune, especially the boxed SNES 1 & 2 with Zelda branding! I could see myself doing something like that for the Mario games, at least 8 and 16 bit, obviously you feel strongly about Zelda, I sorta feel the same way about Mario (so many good memories of SMB3 and World). I'm also the same way about Final Fantasy, up to about 9, but given the history of the releases for that series, it'd be hard to do. (Many of the original games did not come out here).

Might I suggest finding some official Zelda posters for that corner? Buy an old Nintendo Power that's a Zelda issue maybe? (btw I have a recent Club Nintendo limited edition Majora's Mask 3D tote bag, it cost like 1000 coins and I needed to use them before they cancel Club Nintendo, so I just spent them all on the most expensive item... let me know if you want it.)

The rest of your collection is really nice too, how long have you been collecting for? Is that all your Genesis games in boxes on the left side, or do you have loose carts? We have around the same amount of Master System games from the looks of it, and close to the same amount of Nintendo loose carts. I'll post some pics later.

Nice collection of boxed systems. I don't know where people find them, there's nothing around here like that. This town is rather bad for retro collecting. There's not any flea markets or anything. The used games stores are expensive too.

Take a look at this other club that I run too. You may want to join it, as well. smile.gif

Emergency update: sorry for double posting

1. Added spaces in the user list in the OP between each user to make it easier to read.

2. Duplicate systems are not going to be listed (e.g. same system, different region)

3. All-in-one consoles ("NES on a chip"), Atari Flashback etc. are not going to be listed.

4. I think for our purposes, retro would be any system not currently in production and not part of the current generation or generation before it. Due to this, Wii U, 3DS, PS Vita, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, will not be listed. (Sorry johnvosh. I have a 3DS, Wii U, and 360 too but they aren't listed.) I think in a few years we can change this policy and include Wii/360/PS3.

5. I will add this to the original post, if nobody has any objections.

Finally, johnvosh has been added. Welcome!

To tell you the truth, I've never actually played the Zelda games. I have watched lots of videos on YouTube of classic Zelda and I like the music, but never played it. I collect it because it is one of the easier Nintendo products to collect. I buy all the new games that come out for it and work on getting the older stuff. A lot of the older stuff I have gotten of eBay. They are a couple Zelda handheld branded systems that I would love to get but I refuse to pay more than what they were when they came out. In the near future once I save up a bit of money I want to try and get all the Japanese versions of Mario Kart with boxes.

You know, I once had a lot of coins for the Club Nintendo, but I could never buy anything from the site. Because my neighbourhood is only a couple years old, my postal code isn't reconized by some sites yet. I even tried calling them but their customer service sucked big time. I am also wanting to get a complete collection of all the Mario Party games complete in box as well.

I've been collecting the majority of my collection over the last 3-4 years, but I do still have the Gamecube, PS2 that I bought brand new. I've also had my SNES and N64 for at least 10 years. I only have less than 6 loose Genesis games, I try to only buy them complete in box. Yup, that's all the SMS games I've got. Right now I have the following amounts for my games; )doesn't include DS/3DS/Wii/Wii U/PS3/ Xbox 360)

Gameboy -> 6
GBA -> 7
NES loose -> 76
NES box -> 28
Famicom -> 12
SNES loose -> 33
SNES box -> 8
Super Famicom -> 24
N64 loose -> 5
N64 box -> 3
Gamecube -> 4
SMS -> 26
Genesis -> 85
32x -> 2
Saturn -> 1
Dreamcast -> 2
Colecovision -> 12
Atari Systems -> 102
PS1 -> 40
PS2 -> 12

Quite strange that you collect Zelda but have never played it. You have such an awesome display. Sit your ass down sometime and play Link to the Past, or Ocarina of Time. At the very least, play those two. They're both some of the best video games ever made (even if I don't care for Ocarina personally). Try and use a walkthrough if you get stuck or something.

I have around 70+ Genesis games last I counted. Not really looking for more. For all my systems, I just want to collect what I consider the "Best" games for the system, or the ones I have memories with. So, for SNES I gotta have all the Final Fantasies, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana and all the other jrpgs I love and grew up with. For Genesis I gotta have my Phantasy Star and Shining Force, all the Sonics, all the Shinobis, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe and so on. Really the only Genesis games I'm after are Gunstar Heroes and Sparkster. I'm content with the rest of the collection.

Have around 40 SMS games last I counted. I also have the 3D glasses and I think 4 of the 7 games for them. They're fricken awesome for 80s tech. If you see some, pick them up, and get a copy of Zaxxon 3D online.

Nintendo, I have 40-some last I counted and SNES I have 15? I just got a Game Boy Color and traded my N64 for it. I think I have around 10 Game Boy games.

So, overall you have more than me. And I bow to your collection of boxed systems. (I don't have a single one.)



My shelf.

EDIT: I might have more GPUs than you though =P I should sell the ones not being used and use the money to buy games.

I'll join up...just getting back into console gaming, so my collection isn't quite what it could be, but it'll grow over time. I'll list what I have right now though -

Xbox
Dreamcast
Nintendo 64
Super Nintendo
Sega Genesis
Playstation One
Playstation 2 Slim
Nintendo DS

Next systems on the hunting list are Gamecube and Sega Saturn. I'd also like to get a hold of a Sega CD and 32X. I wouldn't mind a NES, but honestly could probably just deal with a Retron since there are only a few NES games I am interested in. Game collection is still quite small, but I am proud to have Conker's Bad Fur Day for my N64 tongue.gif

I'd like to join this one too! I own:

Model 2 Genesis, SNES, Playstation 1 (SCPH-7501), N64, Dreamcast, Xbox (slightly modded), Gamecube







And yes, I'm aware that there's a PS2 there. I'm borrowing it from a friend, so it doesn't count. tongue.gif

Should just pick up a PS2 for yourself! I got mine for $40, PS2 slim, with two Dual Shock 2 controllers and about 40 games or so. They are cheap as dirt tongue.gif Games are currently really cheap too, minus the few rare and popular (mostly RPGs).

I just bought and/or inherited an Atari 800. And a tape deck actually (Atari 1010). May not count as a game console, not sure. I also got 10 cartridges (8 of them games, one is "atari writer" and one is "basic programming"). Also data cassette tapes. That's right, in the 80s people used cassette tapes to store a staggering 16 Kilobytes.

I haven't actually tried to power it on yet as I wanted to give it once-over to make sure it looks okay. Maybe try and clean it. It has been in the open air/environment in a garage for ~22 years. I mean it's california but it still gets to 110F in the summer and cold enough for ice in the winter.

One of the cassettes I have is actually given a 8/10 rarity at...I think atari age but I lost the page apparently. Anyway if it's really that rare it's kinda cool.

I can share more details should somebody decide they care for details.

Added Mr357 and Aaron_Henderson. Welcome.

Agreed on the PS2. It is an extremely cheap and awesome system. It is also incredibly simple to mod. (If anyone's interested in that... pm me... I'll hook it up)
