Favorite System

Atari 2600, no contest...some of the most challenging and original games ever made, and a 2600 was my first friend when i came to america. My mom bought one for me because we came in the summer and i didn't know english so i couldn't go outside during the day...so i played my 10-15 commons for hours and hours by myself in the living room.

What Systems I Own And Collect For

Game Gear (broken), PSX...i had a Genesis and lots of games, but i sold that a few years back, my original 2600 broke when i was 10, my NES was donated to ...er ...some sort of sick-people place.
Collect For:
I don't really collect. I don't have the cash or knowledge for it.

How Many Games I Own For Each System

A handful of PSX games, 5 Game Gear games

How Long I've Been Actively Collecting

I don't actively collect

Possessions In My Collection I'm Most Proud Of

Well, i guess it'd be the 8$ broken playstation i picked up at a flea market and fixed up to working order

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

A full Discs of Tron cabinet... the one you step inside of, with the stereo speakers and all. That'd be awesome. Or maybe a Revenge from Mars pinball table, i've dunked more quarter into that that you can believe.
