I do collect some. I like to buy Vintage Games at the Flea Markets or Wherever. If I see a old GB or GBC, NES,SEGA, SNES game or even 64 that is a hard to find game Ill pick it up cheap. Usually I will play some of it but rarely beat them cause of lack of time. I like to have them though. The last one I came across was Zelda Oracle of the Ages and I picked up another Game Boy Color because it was the Transucent Purple edition I think I paid $25 USD for both together so It wasn't bad.

Sometimes I unintentionally do without thinking. I also hoard almost all my games which explains my 200+ game collection.

I don't really regard myself as a collector because I only keep games I see value in playing again (much as I enjoyed Cursed Moutain, I didn't see much chance I'd replay so I traded it in). I do have a tendency to get games whilst still having a backlog -- especially true of downloads which are too easy to do, so yeah I do have the backlog problem. Good thing is when stuff slows down I've got stuff to play!

Well at times, I take some time out to look at all the games I ever had (before 2006, then my mom forced me to give up my N64 now that I had the Wii) and now I have my DS/DSiWare games to check out!

I skipped the 6th generation entirely with my N64 before I got the Wii... If I had it now, I wouldn't rely on the VC to get my N64 fix (considering I haven't downloaded an N64 VC game yet... :p)

I must say: I DO collect games, but I played all of them - more or less.
For example, i have:

  • Resident Evil 0: Zero (GC)
  • Resident Evil 1: Remake (GC)
  • Resident Evil 2 (GC)
  • Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (GC)
  • Resident Evil 4 (GC)
  • Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition (Wii)
  • Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles (Wii)
  • Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles (Wii) (Pre-Ordered)
  • Resident Evil: Genesis (DVD)
  • Resident Evil: Apocalypse (DVD)
  • Resident Evil: Extinction (DVD)
  • Resident Evil: Degeneration (DVD)

I never really played Resident Evil 2 & 3 for GC - I played Resident Evil 3 years ago on the PC, though. But I own them and I am happy about it. I must to get Code Veronica X to complete my collection - don't know yet if I will have the time to play it :P

Another example is the Metroid Prime series. I have all three games and never finished one... :D
