Game Collections


Still Fresh
Feb 10, 2006
i've been collecting video game consoles ever since my mom said i couldn't throw away my NES when i got a Genesis for xmas when i was a kid, and shortly thereafter found out she still had my atari 7800 in the attic. I thought i was a freak until i discovered google and found out im totally normal. people LOVE my video game collection, they see the "wall o' consoles" and run right to it. My wife gets a kick out of it, trying to find new and decorative ways to show them all off. its not HUGE or anything, and this isnt a complete list, but i'd like to have a few people list of their collections, to kinda compare and get advice.

Atari 7800
Sega Master System
NES (x2)
Turbo Grafx 16
Sega Genesis (x3) (with 32X, Sega CD is OOC)
Atari Jaguar
Sega Saturn
Sega Dreamcast
PS2 (bulky and slim versions)
XBox 360
hopefully soon ill be picking up a ColecoVision.

Number of games vary, 70+ for NES while one or two for TG16. average is 15~20

GameBoy Advance
PSP (x2)
GP2X (ftw)

also an impressive array of add-ons, like SNES super scope, mouse, Atari trackball, etc. also Sega Neon sign and a Sonic poster from CES in like 93.

sega cd
panzer dragoon saga
atari 2600
a real famicom
power glove

i dont collect too much "new-in-the-box" gear, i like em played and to be played.

so for all you people that actually like to play the older systems rather than just emulate (not that theres anything wrong with that too ^^) please post up!

and a question: for those with larger setups, how do you route everything? i hate having to setup and tear down my stuff all the time, so i have been trying to figure out an economical and ergonomical way to have all my systems setup and running into the same television and/or sound system. right now theyre all piggybacked into those pelican multi system selector boxes, but its ghetto at best. and a cheap shelf makes for a lame game stand. i dont want em all piled like you see on room of doom, more streamlined.
impressive collection you got there,

i give my old stuff away to a charity for children

as for how to route, i now just use a shuttle PC running emulators, i keep a controller and have a converter for the systems i use the most, got it them from lik-sang

so theres just one piece of hardware.
sanctuary13: You spend too much money on consoles.

You should try drugs, alcohol and prostitutes. ;)
Nice collection. Let me list my stuff....

NES (X3: Bought one, got one in a cheap pack of games and consoles, was given another one)
SNES (a pal one modded to output 50 or 60 Hertz. Also: Shitload of accessories, including VR gear and a scope.)
Master System
Playstation 2 (bulky, but I decided on a purely aesthetical basis.)
Virtual Boy (Yay!)
Gameboy (X2, one grey, one black)
Gameboy Colour
Gameboy Advance
(I also have an Amiga 600, but that one doesn't count. Also, all my discs are broken.)

I can't really expand my collection because I'm running out of room....

As for hooking them up to the TV, I have the Nintendo Multi-out cable on there which takes care of practically all Nintendo consoles. I also have the Dreamcast connected as well as an antenna-thingy-one for the two older consoles. Other consoles get connected to the front ports on my TV.

Out of all of these, of the consoles, the Turbo Grafx remains my favorite system. Of the handhelds, GamePark wins.

Of handhelds I have plans on getting a PSP, a Game King, and One Station. Of consoles, I have no interests at this point to enter the next generation of gaming.

impressive lists, especialliy artemio, im in awe. my wife and i recently rewired our enitre system, still working on it, ill post pics tomorrow once we're done. basically weve got the coax systems going through a receiver/signal amplifier and the rest of the rca style going into a pelican 5-way switch. should work ok, except the coax will require audio via television, which isnt cool since we got a 5.1 dolby system. anyhoo, everyone has great listings, keep it going! more pics would be great!!
use a vcr to filter the audio? brilliant!! ill try that in about 4 minutes. and once i do, photos!
Ya know Sanctuary... you don't have to be a jerk about it...
Nice setup, lots of consoles, well lit, all systems out for play... BUT...

You gloss over your hamster without one "I'm a fuzzball" pic?? Damn you to hell! :lol:


Seriously that is a sweet setup. Nothing says "Gamer" like doing a book-end X-Box 360 and Vectrex.

Got the multicart for the Veccy? :D
no multicart yet, im after an imager as well.

and dammit, they are GERBILS!!! they need no introduction, its your OWN fault for not knowing...

although, just so you know, theyre names are Chibi and Damacy. gamer, i know.

thanks though ^^
