    I love collecting everything retro. I collect for quantity and I have a friend who collects for quality. I have a lot of respect for you 'quality collectors', that's a serious commitment!

    I'm on a facebook group full of super quality collectors/sellers where they buy/sell games for thousands. I have no business being there but I like to see the super high priced items and what the rich folks own.

    If I had a lot of free time, money, and space, I'd love to collect like this. For now, I have to settle for Mini/Classic consoles.

    Yep, i feel like I have to get all the mini/classic consoles...i haven't gotten the TG16 yet though. Thought that would drop in price quickly like the PS and Genesis minis but nope.

    I’m focusing on Super NES games, with the Super Famicom’s 30th anniversary last year, and the North American release’s anniversary in August! Then, I’m playing the Capcom Arcade Stadium games. It’s handy for celebrating Street Fighter II’s 25th anniversary! Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is like playing a retro game, being heavy on Ghosts ‘n Goblins & Ghouls ‘n Ghosts stages. 

    I'm so terrible at Ghouls & Ghosts...i can't even make it past the first level lol. I guess I could try harder.

    CD tech was positively ancient in Japan by the time the Sega CD launched in 1991.  The CD attachment for the PC Engine (TurboGrafx 16) launched in Japan in 1988 and was hugely successful there - way more popular than any of Sega's systems including the Genesis/Mega Drive.

    I believe the PC Engine's success in Japan can be directly tied to the huge number of dating sims and "mature" games released for it.  The CD attachment allowed for voice acting and videos, which made these types of games even more appealing.  Of course, since those sorts of games don't sell outside of Japan, the system was a failure in the rest of the world.

    Weird how Japan has some systems a full year+ before they even came to North America. Either I didn't realize or just forgot that Japan actually had the Mega Drive almost a year before North America. That's a long time.

  5. I had a sega cd back then....it was meh cuz it didn't add much better color to the games and all the FMV games weren't really all that fun to play. Mortal Kombat was cool to have the real music, sounds and voices though. SNES games still looked better to me but I was Team Sega and would never admit that to my Team Nintendo friend back then lol

  6. Been looking for a clean Genesis box for years now since I never picked up the 2 that were sitting in my dad's shed for years that he threw out after spring cleaning in his shed. Most of the ones on eBay look like junk or people asking too much for decent boxes. Guy I buy plastic box protectors from has a nice one he uses to display his protector on his website. Figured I'd ask him if he was willing to sell expecting to just hear "sorry, no" but he replied back telling me he has no room for it and would gladly sell it to me for the price he paid! I couldn't pass that up! All my years of looking for a decent box was finally over. Box looks great. Styro looks great and even has the top cover. All the plastic bags there. All the literature I think is there...manual and some card. Not sure if a poster came with it or not back in the day when I got it on release day on August 14, 1989. Just thought I'd share my exciting find. I'm a nerd and like to collect my fav consoles but only if the boxes area nice. Any other nerd collectors like me?

    An extra 545 hours? 

    Well, sure.  You left it running and went on a 3 week vacation to the Mongolian Steppe.  I'm pretty sure we've all done that once or twice in our lives.:lol:

    My PC is on 24/7 for streaming music..only thing I can think happened is I must have stopped playing the game but went to desktop and left the game running in the background....for 22 days lol. It must have been a long stretch of just not going on Steam to notice. I may have gone for a week vacation too.

  8. Steam sales...lol..money suckers. Do you ever look at how much you've spent on all your Steam games? Over 13.5 years I've spent $1100 on steam. Looking at a calculator...if I bough every single game at the lowest sale value, it would have been $833....i guess I wasn't patient enough on some games and it cost me an extra $267.


  9. I played most of Doom (2016) on PC without cheating but had to turn on a cheat mode where i'm at now just so I don't die so quickly. It's not a God mode, you can still die but at least not immediately. I'm not the greatest at FPS with a controller. I got a XIM4 for my PS4 just so i can use my keyboard and mouse. Actually better and more enjoyable that way.
