Wow is all I can say. How much money do you think he's 'wasted' buying all those games?

EDIT: I don't really think he wasted his money. Notice the single parenthesis? I was being sarcastic when I typed the word.

Kinda looks like a shop to me and the guy above is right, that will be worth shit loads in the future if isn't now. Anyway I wouldn't say he's wasted his money, everyone has their own hobby and if thats what he wants to do then fair play to him.

It is pretty cool but at the end of the day whatever floats your boat really (Y). I would love to know how much he has roughly spent on games.

I like the store case for the PS2. Now he can start building up his next gen selection of games. If I was that rich, I'd probably be doing the same things. Wow what if he was a gamerscore addict like us. Buys all 360 games and works for them. He'd be right next to Stallion.

I think it's cool to collect video games, but old gen games do no go up in value. I try to sell my old games when the new system comes out. But I think the container holding the ps2 games would be awesome next to my T.V. with my 20 360 games.

What about Pimp My Ride and the countless movie tie-ins These are definately a waste of money.

That's incorrect, Old Gen games do go up in value. Your kinda stupid trying to sell ps2 games at the moment, there not really old gen are they. I bet if you sold now, an original copy of something like Final Fantasy 1....for example, that you would get a big price for it. You wont get a large price for ps2 games there not old enough yet :)

xxEquilibriumxx
04-22-2008, 05:14 PM
Ok rare games sell for a value a little more then what you bought it for. For your information I could buy a Final Fantasy 1 game for nes for $15 bucks online right now. Back then i bought it for about $40-50. Tell me that you make a profit for keeping that old game and I'll call u crazy. Say such games as E.T. where they were shoved in a sandpit you would probably bring in a profit, but overall hate to tell you games go down from the original price u buy them.

I think this guy has spent way too much on games, he'll make loads in return of course, but a bit of a geek.

I have seen copies of Banjo-Tooie go for 50 and thats only 2 generations old so don't tell me that old games don't make profit

Look up Rance 6 on Photobucket to get pictures of his collection, it's beastly.

I'd be more impressed with "Sufoor" 's collection. He played like 400 games the day he made that xoxMorganNelson account.

04-22-2008, 06:52 PM
I have every game system from coleco vision on, but this collection makes mine look terrible! lol. This is by far the coolest most amazing video game collection ever! I want to see pictures of how he has everything hooked up though. He has to have a huge system selector or maybe a few system selector's daisy chained.

M85A21
04-22-2008, 06:54 PM
I would imagine a few, my friend has daisy chained ones throughout his games room to areas of his house.

I was gonna say this.... Do you guys know how much space invaders is worth now? $.25 - As new technology comes out the old becomes obsolete. I was thinking his whole collection there is probably worth $50,000. Still it is impressive he/she has such a library.

jEnNz4
04-22-2008, 07:21 PM
Wow that's an insane collection. Pretty cool he has collected that much but at the same time most isn't worth anything. Unless they are a really rare collectors edition or something video games go down in price.

04-22-2008, 07:43 PM
Thats the biggest collection iv ever seen in my life lol(the whole 18 years :P) my dad has a pretty big collection dating way back to the atari he has so many sega and nintendo games for example.

one day we went to McVans and he had a chat with an old buddie and he was saying how much he coould get for some of his nintendo games cause we saw some rare ones that where like 70 bucks and now if he sold them all he could get tons of money but i dont think he will ever sell any systems or games(2 N64's 2 sega dreamcast's and so on and so forth)

btw the reason why we have 2 of the sam consoles on some of them is cause 1 would be his and 1 would be mine lol so we both could play and not fight over them!

04-22-2008, 07:44 PM
are you sure thats someones house? i could understand the last one but the rest of it looks like some hardcore gaming station in japan or somthink.

Well thats a life deucated to game if it is, i salute u

I wasn't saying he wasted his money. I saw that site linked on another site, and people were saying how he wasted his money. So I said that, but with single parenthesis around it, making it sarcastic.

Read what I said above. I don't really think its a waste.

J eVeRy DaY 514
04-22-2008, 10:16 PM
i don't know why people are talking about price. if the guy has all of these games, i'm sure money wasn't an issue and that it has more sentimental value to him than anything. it may be a waste to you, but to him, its just a hobby.

Gamesaving/hacking has gotten to the point where you don't even need the game. He could have nothing but a core system.

not suprised. Another "no-lifer" Buying tons of games are total waste of money. I mean, buying few games that you want for only few years or somthing are ok. Its nice to have collection and sell them off 50 years later but...why waste so damn much money on dumb games and stuff if you are 20 years young and you can do other things such, clubbing, partying, college, sports, friends, driving, clothes, and taking care of yourself. Instead of wasting all money then wait for 50 years, you might die or you get too old to do anything. Get most out of your life. dont waste..............

but if hes rich and still have damn alot of money to spare after all this...hes lucky!

i wish i had colections like that, i love video games. and to those who think games dont go up in value, if you have a game that somone wants bad, they will pay for it. i have a brand new NES system, never unwrapped. and still has the new electronics smell. with a label on it for 89.99 from wolworth i belive. i would have to check it out. some guy on my list offered my almost a grand for it 2 months ago, and i only paid 50 dollars for it 7 years ago in an estate sale. so that would be profit right. but i will never sell that, i mean who gets to say they have a brand new NES system.

JesusBread
04-23-2008, 05:22 AM
I applaud him. I seriously do. Can't wait until I have a job that pays a 6 figure salary. Then I can finally afford all the games I want. I would have literally bought every 360 title right now if I had the money. Just for the gamerscore :). Maybe one day, I'll hit it big in the lottery.

Fonkey Monkey
04-23-2008, 05:38 AM
he can afford all that, yet cant get a decent camera? honestly.
if hes going to resell that one day, hes going to be sadly disappointed. at least if hes collectiong current gen aswell. 360/ps3 is a black hole for money. this shit has no resale value whatsoever. and only a few vintage games are worth alot( panzer dragoon saga comes to mind), other than that most are only a couple of bucks.
that mario wallpaper or whatever that is, its freaking epic though. im going to dedicate a whole room like that when i have my own house.

Ah nothing like someone who has been bitten by the collection bug. It's something you truly can't understand until it happens to you.

I am the same way with star wars merchandise. Those are some pretty epic collections and my hat goes off to those guys.

This was in EGM a few months or years ago. Very impressive, but where's the 360 stuff?

VinasErgoth
04-24-2008, 07:45 PM
That's all very well impressive and what not. I wouldn't mind having a collection like that myself, but there are a few things that draw my attention when I see collections of this size.

1. What if there's a fire? If all that burns, what're you going to do? Okay, so you make sure you have insurance, but still. You didn't collect all that to claim insurance, did you?

2. Games are meant to be played. I'm an avid games collector myself and have most system dating back to the Atari. I buy the games I know I'll enjoy playing and keep them in an area where I can actually take them from the shelving and play them.

The original post, showing the collection, stacked up on one another then locked away in a glass case? Games shouldn't be kept like this.

Okay, I'm done. And I'll say it once more before anyone thinks I'm "hating": these collections are IMPRESSIVE, I'm not denying that.

kentarulez
05-04-2008, 02:11 PM
Wow, that must have cost one hell of a lot, the insurance would be alot, because, you dont want them to break down or get stolen... either way he will get a big payout.
