Do we have a thread for the guys collecting games, consoles and accessories? Its probably my only hobby I've held onto since my teen years. Recently been getting back into the swing of it, some people think I'm weird AF being in my mid 30's and spending my weekends looking around at cash converters and pawn shops for little gems, what are some of the items you've found?
 
i'll try organise some photos, my current collection

PSone console complete
PS2 Phat console complete, with a working Eyetoy!!!
PS3 Phat console complete (not backwards compatible) (not sure if im interested in the others they look so kak)
PS4 Slim model, (id love a PRO)

Still plenty more id love to add like:

Playstation 1 (PHAT OG one)
PS2 slim (just wanting on a bargain)
PS5 (one day is one day)
PSP/Go/Vita etc (Had so many but never kept one for my collection)

i have a pretty SICK selection on Playstation games covering all generations
 
Not collecting the real deal more than collecting access to old games ie: I'm Into emulation scene.

Collection over 20 000 game dumps strong.
Ah yeah this is a whole vibe all by itself, i have a obsession over the physical things, maybe one day i can get it all up in a display or something, you know, to satisfy my soul
 
I have a Nintendo Switch that I would probably never use again, does that count :)
LOL

i HAD a wii, thought it would be cool to get into the Zelda collection, ended up swopping and hustling till i got a Switch, sold that also to continue on the PS buzz, Switch was super cool tho! we had a short relationship but i would 100% light that flame again one day!

Dont get me wrong the Emulation does come with its own hardware obsession but not as bad as collecting hardware.

I mean I do have a PS2/PS3/PS5 + Xbox Series S and X + Raspberry Pi + Gaming PC + Anbernic 351M.
The full PS Move getup + Wheel + PS Move Guns and Arcade sticks...

Just that my physical game selection is rather low (About 100 games) I just normally dump the ISO's instead of keeping the physical.

So sad i flipped my Gun controller!!! Just recently found Time Crisis for the PS3 !!!!

wish i got into PC gaming etc, i just wasnt raised with a PC in the house, but my grand parents always went out the way for me and a console, wasnt always the latest one, but i ALWAYS had something!

thanks old timers! you probably saved me from my life going off track many many times without even knowing it

Sickness is harsh lol, but its nice knowing there are others :ROFL:

Sold my 3DS about 3 weeks ago, now that its gone, duuuuuuude i miss it! damn ive had so many unreplaceable stuff already, but i allow my obsession's to pay for my obsession's, i never take money out of my personal life to support it,

I'll add pictures tomo of some of the games i have, some ive had since i was 16/17 years old


Edit: i might grab a 2DS soon!

If a new awesome Mario game comes out (i.e. to the standard of Odyssey), I will definitely turn it on again :)

I'll take a pic and post. I have so much sentimental value for my old Nintendo stuff, it's the last remnants of things I managed to keep from my childhood.

I would collect more if I could find it but Nintendo stuff from the pre Wii-U era are hard to come by and super expensive if you do find anything good.
