My French Game Manual Collection
Being that I live in Canada, it is a requirement by law that all products have bilingual packaging. This obviously extends to video games and in some cases, their manuals. I first noticed this when I became "hardcore" into video games with the purchase of an original Xbox. It came bundled with MechAssault and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, both of which came with an English manual and a French manual. Those two were the first in my collection and it has been growing ever since. I have collected them from games I own or owned, games my friends own or owned, and from friends who worked at EB Games/Futureshop.
As of April 26th, 2011, my collection includes 269 manuals for 179 different games on 9 platforms.
