How Long I've Been Actively Collecting

Still have all my stuff for my Atari systems since I got them originally. But the collecting bug started in May 2000 when I finally got a Sega Genesis and rescued my 7800 from parents' garage.

Possessions In My Collection I'm Most Proud Of

I have two:
Shining Force 2 for the Genesis for 5.99 I got locally
Complete Chrono Trigger for the SNES for the cost of one modded and working 7800

One Game Or System/Item That I'd Love To Obtain Someday:

- Well that would be all the Final Fantasies for the SNES, plus Secret of Mana
- I also will have to get me several homebrews for the 2600
- I must have Alien Brigade for the 7800 in the not too distant future
- Wouldn't mind getting Shining Force 1 and all the Phantasy Star RPGs

Other Tidbits/Comments

I am not a real collector since cart condition is the only thing I care about. I am more of a game player and only collect what I wanted when I was younger and unable to get then. Or collect what I know to be good games for the various platforms.
