Video Games
Updated: July 2007    
Up until recently, video games have always been a part of my life. In 1982 I started out with a good 'ol Coleco Vision and Atari 2600 console (which are still in the closet). My video game loyalty really took off Christmas of 1987 when I received the 8-bit NES from Nintendo. After years of buying and selling, I have acquired almost 250 games for multiple systems. And about half of them are still factory sealed, appreciating in value every year.

These days the video game hobby has dwindled significantly, mostly due to lack of time and motivation. Now I'm really more of a collector than anything. It's a good investment because many of my sealed games have appreciated in value, some topping $300. If I ever wanted to actually play the game, I'd buy a used copy, beat it, sell it, keep the sealed one intact. Snap.

My favorite stuff has always been the side-scrolling platform games (i.e. Super Mario Bros., Castlevania, Mega Man, Sonic Hedgehog, etc.) All this new 3-D stuff really doesn't do it for me. Some people can't believe I turn my nose up at first-person games like Doom, Halo, Grand Theft Auto, etc. Meh, it's not my style. Give me the stuff I grew up on.

I love collecting series games (the one with an endless amount of sequels). I have almost 50 games in the Mega Man series alone. My website contains a comprehensive list of games I've collected so far (excluding Atari/Coleco games). I sometimes have a small wish list of games, some of which may be currently unreleased.

I'm more restrictive with my finances so the video game collection can seriously get behind and make way for bigger priorities. Occasionally I make a concentrated effort to buy the ones I need before they stop manufacturing them (driving demand and prices up). Other times I will wait for price drops. Ain't collecting great?
