Favorite System

Commodore 64, because I had one for many years. In fact, I still have that one, even though I use emulators nowadays.
Odyssey 2, when I was young, I always wondered why it had a keyboard. I still wonder...
Vectrex, because it looks so cool!

What Systems I Own And Collect For

I collect just about everything, as long as it's a console and it uses cartridges, or, in the case of Commodore, also tapes and disks. I also like tabletops and, to a lesser degree, Nintendo G&W (I like double-screens, tabletops and Panorama screens) Systems I have: Odyssey2, Vectrex, Commodore 8 bit machines, Atari XL/XE Systems, Jaguar, Lynx, SMS, Genesis, Colecovision, Gemini, Intellivision, NES, Aquarius, Handhelds & Tabletops, PSX. Some pongs, too. However, I don't really collect for all of those, I just pick them up whenever they're cheap. There's some systems I concentrate on.

How Many Games I Own For Each System

Varies, somewhere between 2 and 200 per system.

How Long I've Been Actively Collecting

Oh ... Somewhere since early 2000 I think. I wanted to collect for many years, but didn't start before then.

Possessions In My Collection I'm Most Proud Of

Dunno, lots of stuff. Let's see My AudioSonic PP 940 pong-clone, this was my first 'computer' ever! Nearly complete Videopac collection, including some proto's. Vectrex with shipping carton. Many more... Each time I have a great find, it's my proudest possession, even if it's just for a short while.
