After my deployment to the Middle East, I was determined to buy a Super Nintendo. For years, I have always wanted to play a Super Nintendo the way it was meant to be played: on a couch with the original controller and game console. I have most of the remastered copies, but I never actually owned the system. Even though I had five copies of Super Mario World, I had to have the original copy on a Super Nintendo. Maybe it was to show my Videogame geekness to friends and family, I am not sure. Due to this compulsion, I bought a Super Nintendo and have collected over 15 SNES games and a pile of other oddities (Eternal Darkness, Xmen Children of the Atom, Marvel War of the Gems). Some purchases have been worth it (Super Metroid) while others... I do not have time to play them! The problem is this: I buy these old games and systems, put them on a shelf, hook them to the TV, and they gain dust.
It seems like the hunt is more fun than the actual prize. I check availability and Ebay to see if the titles are in stock or not, eventually get them, and never play it! I have three Metroid Prime games to go through!
So, are there any obsessive retro hunters like myself? Are you guys looking for SNES or GC, or is it older like 3DO, Jaguar, Saturn? Just curious to see how the community is with this. Have a good one!
