Anything...although I don't really consider PS1 retro but I guess that does count these days.

I think my biggest collections would probably be NES, SNES and Genesis

Just emulate NES/SNES/etc. on a computer and put in a cabinet. You can build your own cabinet easily now with flat monitors and Bluetooth controllers.

I could do that but the idea of getting stuff like it came is kinda neat to me, go back to being a kid.

It was really fun to set up. But I have to admit that I don't play the games much at all.

I still play and there are times where I'd like to be able to go back and play the old school stuff.

I have roms on my computer but it's not really the same.

I watch a lot of YouTube content on old video game stuff. If I want to play I emulate. I guess I don’t have the need hold the actual cart in my hands.

Besides, if I start, I won’t be able to stop until I have everything. Sounds like a cool hobby though.

Do you have a good tube tv? The lag on even the best flat tvs will drive you insane. An old Panasonic plasma with minimal processing was as close as I could get.

These are old games. They will steal your soul unless you have perfect timing.

That was me. I became obsessed with getting every possible title from every available platform. And since then I've played maybe 10 out of those thousands of games.

I like this idea - post pics as you grow your collection. Are you a movie fan? Thoughts on collecting movies? I am of the camp of obtaining and collecting physical media.

Let it pass. Nostalgic gaming is a novel idea. And then you buy the shit. And then you get bored and it gets put away to collect dust.

I own an original SNES and Genesis no thanks to nostalgia. I played them the day i got them and haven't touched them since.

Do you ever check out the game chasers, they're good content for retro stuff.
