I just crossed the 150 mark. Had a bad trading habit in high school and a little after but I haven't in good while since I landed a really good job. Also what are some of your top gaming things you own (rare, collectors editions etc).

As in exercise games?

#3 Posted by csl316 (8198 posts) -

I'm definitely over 100, maybe over 150.

And the best damn thing I own is the Valkyrie Profile 2 Artifact Box.

20ish?

#5 Edited by pyromagnestir (4254 posts) -

Ummm....

Let's see. I'll estimate:

  • 20 Genesis games
  • 15 GB/GBA/3DS
  • 20 GC
  • 25 PS2
  • 20 XBOX
  • 35 N64
  • 25 360
  • 6 PS3
  • 15 Wii
  • 5 assorted other console games
  • 10 pc

So about 200. And I'm probably underestimating.

#6 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5282 posts) -

I'm not entirely sure, but I'm guessing close to 100. I have way more digital nowadays. I tend to only buy physical copies of games I know I'll really treasure.

#7 Posted by csl316 (8198 posts) -

Now I'm bummed that my Atari and NES and Sega CD collections are gone. And most of my Genesis games.

Damn those childhood garage sales I had no say in :(

A metric sh*t-ton.

*ponders on whether to actually count*

Maybe later...

#9 Posted by EVO (3871 posts) -

200 or so. I own a bunch of limited editions, the most prized probably being the deluxe edition of Demon's Souls. I paid like $200 for it, but it was totally worth it. I doubt there was many produced.

@themanwithnoplan: I'm going digital with some stuff....but there is just something about looking at a shelf full if games that is awesome to me.

#11 Edited by wemibelec90 (1569 posts) -

I'd say around 100. I had a tendency to sell back any newer console games, but my PS2 collection kept growing over time. My PC games couldn't be sold back, obviously, so those never dwindled.

#12 Posted by Oscar__Explosion (2209 posts) -

I'd say at least 100. It would be more but I gave away most of my 360 and ps2 games a few years ago.

#13 Posted by xXCrazyCostaXx (115 posts) -

@csl316: Sweet! Some of my prized possessions are my two Pikachu 3ds xl's and my Bravely Default collectors edition.

Well I can definitely understand that, but when spacial limitations become a factor that point of pride begins to have diminishing returns. Regardless, I still like having a cool collection of games and movies on my shelf, even if it's smaller than it used to be.

#16 Posted by xXCrazyCostaXx (115 posts) -

@themanwithnoplan: very true. Luckily the girlfriend is still tolerating how much room my hobby takes up. She's a gamer also so I think I can keep this collecting thing going for a while. My collection was as low as 15 last year so I've made a lot of progress if you could call it that.

#17 Posted by zombiepenguin9 (529 posts) -

Probably close to 100-150. I'm not sure if it's rare or not, but I do have a complete-in-box copy of Frogger for the Atari 800XL that I'm fairly proud of.

#18 Posted by BeachThunder (11728 posts) -

Maybe 75ish?

I have no idea, too many to just casually count for a forum post. I have a bookshelf filled with 360, PS3, Wii, WiiU, Gamecube, Xbox, PS2, PSone, 3DS and Vita games, and that's not quite everything I own (a handful of DS/Gameboy games are in a drawer and I have a small box with some other assorted games).

I have a handful of Collector's Edition statues sitting on top of that bookshelf. My favourite is probably the ACIV statue that came with the Black Chest Edition.

#22 Posted by mosespippy (4052 posts) -

Based on my slightly outdated list of my collection I know I've purchased/received 63 physical console games. Ten have since been stolen, some of which have been replaced digitally. I also think I've got an additional 11 physical PC games, and some Dreamcast games, which I acquired somehow despite not owning a Dreamcast. I also have doubles of some games which isn't accounted for in my list, like having a PS1 and PS2 copy of THPS3.

So probably 75ish, which is less than I would have guessed.

#23 Posted by Rejizzle (271 posts) -

Looking at my shelf... 1, 2, 3, 4... 127 physical discs and carts. Oh, I forgot the snes and nes carts in the garage, let's say 150 something. I may have a problem... at any rate some cool things I own are: infamous 2 collectors edition with Cole statue and a pretty handy bag, a Video Games Live pamphlet with several of the contributors signatures (including Tommy Tallarico's), a couple Game and Watch games (add two more to the list), and an ocarina that by itself has nothing to do with video games but I did teach myself to play the majority of songs from the Zelda series on. Thank you Crazy Costa for making me evaluate my life like this. My assessment: eh, seems alright.

#24 Edited by Seikenfreak (344 posts) -

Based on my VGCollect.. About 414 physical games out of roughly 700 games total.

  • Atari Jaguar - 4
  • Atari Lynx - 4
  • Game Boy - 5
  • Game Boy Color - 7
  • Super Nintendo - 16
  • Gamecube - 12
  • Nintendo DS - 4
  • Nintendo 3DS - 3
  • Nintendo 64 - 12
  • Wii - 11
  • PC/Windows - 144
  • PlayStation - 28
  • PlayStation 2 - 44
  • PlayStation 3 - 55
  • PlayStation 4 - 6
  • PSP - 5
  • PS Vita - 5
  • Dreamcast - 10
  • Saturn - 1
  • Xbox - 10
  • Xbox 360 - 28

Only recently was given the Saturn by a friend (temporarily IMO) so I want to start getting some stuff for that. And I'd like to find a complete (packaging and paperwork) Model 2 Genesis w/ some complete games for $75-100 maybe. Plan to pick up a Wii U and Xbox One at some point. Once I start getting money again of course.

< - - - - - VGCollect's signature thing. Shows your most recently added items. When I was counting the games I noticed it said I only had 2 Gamecube games which was weird. Went in and added the missing stuff which is why it shows a bunch of GC stuff.

#25 Edited by fisk0 (3881 posts) -

I counted them about 5 years ago, but can't remember the number anymore. Somewhere around 500 I'd guess, about a hundred each of PS2 and PS3 games, and about 200 PC games, and then in total maybe 100 for other platforms such as PS1, Vita, Game Boy/GBA, Genesis and N64.

As for rare things, I generally don't care for limited edition stuff, though I've gotten some cheap, and sometimes opt for them if the price difference compared to a regular copy isn't all that big. I kinda prefer collecting those "mid tier" games, the shit few care about and that sometimes don't even get any entries on mobygames and such. They're certainly not worth a lot, but more than anything I hate it when stuff gets lost to time, something that is unlikely to ever happen to that Stadium Games thing for the NES, however rare that may be.

One of my favorites is probably No Respect, somewhat of an engine tech demo for the tech they later used in the more well remembered Outcast. Well, I've got a budget release of No Respect that so little effort had been spent on that most of the back cover text was the classic "lorem ipsum" latin placeholder text.

@rejizzle: nothing wrong with a little hobby lol, I have my signed GB nighthawks poster right above my collection.

#28 Posted by transformers1024 (5 posts) -

To lazy to have to do anything with physicall..

#29 Posted by beard_of_zeus (1675 posts) -

I have 867 physical games at the moment (don't worry, I have spreadsheets because I'm a crazy OCD person!) and counting. What can I say, I like collecting and playing games, and I almost always get a physical copy of a game when I can. It'll be 868 when my copy of Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime shows up from eBay in a day or two...

p.s. now I'm waiting for Jeff to show up and give me an intervention.

Huh, didn't realize that was so pricey at this point; I guess I shouldn't be surprised, that was back when no one knew what the hell that series really was all about, and it wasn't the juggernaut it is now (plus it was/is an exclusive on PS3). I just have my copy that I bought when the game came out; it's quite a nice little boxed set, and it think it originally sold for normal price ($60). I got a ton of use out of the little mini-guide that came with it.

I feel your pain. My mom sold my Genesis and all my games in a garage sale back in the day without consulting me (as well as my complete collection of Goosebumps books, and a pretty good set of OG Transformers).

#31 Posted by Hunter5024 (5555 posts) -
  • 8 DS games (5 of which are pokemon)
  • 4 3DS games
  • 4 Wii games
  • 2 Wii U games
  • 2 ps3 games (I probably have 15 or so in the pawn shop which I'm sad about)
  • 1 360 game (sold my 360, but still have Child of Eden for some reason?)
  • 1 Xbox game (they wouldn't take my copy of Jade Empire, and I don't want to just throw it away)
  • 12 ps2 games
  • 4 ps1 games
  • 6 n64 games

I also have 164 games on steam, around 20 on GOG, maybe 10 PS one classics, some PS Plus stuff, and 2 or 3 downloadable games on my Wii.

I used to have a lot more, but I don't really make enough money to hang on to all the games that I'd like to. Lately I focus on buying older stuff, because I can't sell it for as much, and that stuff won't always be easy to get a copy of.

Sounds like you've got the deluxe edition. I think the original run was all deluxe.

Oh awesome. Had no idea that thing was worth any money. That might be my most valuable game then.

You mention you used the mini-guide a lot. Is the outside artwork/ink all rubbed the hell away where your fingers touch it? My book is horrible condition in terms of that. It's all crisp and sharp but the spine is almost all white as well as a chunk of the front cover and some on on the back. I imagine that kinda kills the value.

#34 Edited by TheRealMoot (356 posts) -

328 physical games, approximately. Got a few loose games in CD binders and a bunch of duplicates I didn't add in.

I got a bunch of collectors edition games and stuff, but nothing that's actually rare or valuable. The most valuable collectible I have is probably the Killer Cuts soundtrack. ...I need to get something cool for my Game room that is actually rare...

#35 Posted by NTM (7288 posts) -

I don't know anymore; too many to count on the top of my head. I used to keep track on GameSpot.

#36 Edited by hunterob (80 posts) -

Over 50 N64 games, over 70 PS3 games, over 50 DS/3DS games, probably around 40 Wii games. The PS3 games were mostly bought by my brother, but I kind of own them for now. Somewhere under 30 games for my PS2/PSP/Gamecube/Gameboy~Advance/Xbox 360/Wii U, individually. Currently own exactly 1 game for PS4 and 1 game for Sega Genesis.

I only have one Sega Genesis because I got a Genesis "Model 4" for Christmas (which has godfucking awful sound emulation) and I figured hey, I can use this to play and justify ownership of the version of Revenge of Shinobi where Spiderman morphs into Batman. I'm just waiting for the miracle in which my childhood Genesis & collection somehow finds its way back to me.

#37 Posted by CorruptedEvil (1849 posts) -

I'm gonna say somewhere in the neighborhood of 150. I have a few limited editions aswell, the first 2 Arkham games, Bioshock Infinite, Mass Effect 3 (unfortunately) and Soulcalibur 4 which i picked up at an EB games for 20$

#38 Posted by Mendelson9 (402 posts) -
#39 Posted by ervonymous (1297 posts) -

I stopped updating Backloggery a year ago, closer to 450 by now I'd think. The rarest and shittiest game I own is the NES version of Turtles Tournament Fighters. Favorite limited edition would probably be the Famitsu DX pack of Dragon's Crown, I have the art prints framed.

#40 Posted by Chop (1995 posts) -

Zero.

Got rid of all my physical disks a while ago and I've never felt more free in my life.

#41 Posted by Yummylee (21305 posts) -

Roughly 250 it seems, though I've lost so many games over the years (and had a few sold by my stepdad that POS, like my saturn & megadrive games) that it should probably amount somewhere closer to 300. Still isn't much in the face of serious collectors, but I do like seeing my stash of physical games stacked all around my room all the same. Unless there's a significant discount, I'm going to be sticking to physical for as long as I can.

#42 Posted by SingingMenstrual (327 posts) -

About 15. I used to pirate games as a kid and only buy like one a year, and when that changed Steam became a thing so game purchases became digital.

#43 Posted by RVonE (4607 posts) -

Many. That's what I've decided to settle on. Many.

#44 Posted by TobbRobb (4581 posts) -

120 or so? It's been increasing very slowly since Steam got good.

#45 Edited by Haruko (290 posts) -

Around 500 in my apartment and around 400 at my parents house. Last gen and this gen only are here while everything else is in storage. My parents forbid me from trading anything in or getting rid of it as a kid so they just kind of stayed there and I've just kept adding to the pile over the years.

As for specific stuff I'm proud to own

  • Bioshock 2 Special edition (The Box is Gorgeous)

  • God of War 2 Promo kit
  • God of War 3 special edition
  • Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Green PSP
  • GBA Micro Famicom Edition
  • Diablo 2 & 3 Collectors editions
  • Demons Souls, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls 2 special editions
  • Xenoblade Chonicles (the one with the red classic controller pro that shit is hot!) and The Last Story collectors editions
  • Binding Of Isaac LImited Edition Signed Tarot Cards
  • The amazing old manuals to Earthsiege, Starsiege, and Starsiege: Tribes (yeah that shits a spinoff of a mech game)
  • The Diablo 2 D&D game box
  • My plaque for being the store champion for the blockbuster video game championship II (Got the farthest and collected the most bananas in Donkey Kong Country.)
  • My 3DS LL Circle Pad pro (Imported that shit from Hong Kong because I'm a goddamned moron)
  • And as for nongaming I've got a signed Matisse Sketch that's my one object de art.
#46 Posted by xXCrazyCostaXx (115 posts) -

@haruko: @mendelson9: Will do thanks!!

In terms of collectors editions I have fallout new Vegas, fable 3, mass effect 3 n7, assassins creed 1, 2 and 3, Bravely Default, Infamous Second son, Halo 4, South Park stick of truth and The witcher 2. Had bought my girlfriend the animal crossing 3ds xl but it got stolen :(...also p4 golden and shin megami 4.

#48 Posted by Karkarov (3008 posts) -

How many physical games do I own? If I said a "metric shit ton" would that give you a good idea?

#49 Edited by falserelic (5334 posts) -

For ps4 just these two, the rest is digitally, but when I had a ps2 I had a huge collection.

#50 Posted by Marcsman (3130 posts) -

Four for the PS4

About 30 for the PS3
