My collection is just too big to be trying to take a ton of pics, so I just did a video. Ironically I tried to make it quick and it ended up being 16 minutes and I sorta just blaze through the more recent stuff.

Been collecting since I was in Elementary school. I graduated high school in 2000, so like 30 years or so now? Lot of thrift store buys, lots of the Gamestop "Buy 2 get 1 free" or "4 for 20/4 for ten" deals.

I used to try and keep track of all I had with a website to track them, but kinda fell out of using it. I can tell you I have over 1,500 at the very least.

Wasn't able to go into too much depth as I was rushing through. I'd be glad to list, take pics of anything anyone is interested in. Also want to point out that next to my strategy guides you see a suitcase. That's the Collector's edition Limited Run did of Scott Pilgrim vs the World.

Of course the best thing in the video is the kitty.

Nice video! That is a huge space for a lot of stuff to display and I am impressed with your organization of it all.

Thanks! When my roommates and I moved into this house, I was able to basically get the basement/den due to all my junk. I'm very thankful they let me have this area. Heck it doesn't even have all my stuff. My anime is all upstairs in the living room area. Including more figures and some statues.

When I show off the No More Heroes stuff that's actually on the mantle of a fireplace. The fireplace ended up hidden/covered by two small three shelf units which holds my manga and entire Animorphes book collection. Ended up covering the fireplace because one, I never get that cold during the winter. I actually prefer it cold to hot. Two, I was too afraid of my cat being curious and getting herself hurt or sick in there.

I was shocked that I had any Gameboy boxes left! No insert in it but it does have the manual. That snes is the one my brother got about the time he graduated high school. The box is beat up but still cool.

Uhh, see the first page. The only thing added since then would be Final Fantasy Mystic Quest for the SNES.
Oh dang it. When you said you'd try to get to that video, for whatever reason my brain went: "Oh! Caldwin is making a video!" Not that you'd get to WATCHING my video. >_<

I blame it on work. I work a deli that had to fire our third person, so it's literally just me and one other person trying to run it. I've been working noon to close with an hour transportation time to and from, so yeah I think my brain is just frying. Sorry about that.

I can play up to Dragon Warrior VI on I Pad.

I looked at Final Fantasy VII for Android but way too many buttons and they take up half the screen.

PS Mini has the game built in.

Sadly, nothing new at the local game exchange today.


I am thinking that I might do some rearranging on my retro self this weekend. I am thinking of putting my Gameboy stuff where the Genesis is, an move that down to the next shelf where there is more vertical space.

So, if you follow along on my PC build thread, you know that I had to go make a run for a SSD mount since my case didn't include one. Unfortunately, the nearest place that had one was the Best Buy 90ish miles away. Rather than wait until Monday, I went for the part. While I was there I stopped by two places to check out their retro games.


2nd and Charles.

Its like Booksamillion crossed with Gamestop. They deal a lot in used books, games, comics, etc, and the place looked pretty neat. It was my first time visiting one of these stores. While they had some nice stuff, the only thing that they had that was tempting to me was a $60 copy of Megaman 6 on the NES. I held off though as I wanted to see what the next place would have.


Zone 1 gaming.

Its a retro store nearby my friends old house. I had forgotten about this place, but I had been there before in 2010 or 2011. It had a much better selection back then. They did have some nice NES stuff there, and some good SNES stuff, but everything there was about 40% higher than eBay prices. For example, they had a tempting copy of Contra for the NES, but it was $50. That is a $35 game all day long on eBay. Super Mario World and Donkey Kong country were about the same mark up. I always ponder, if you are more expensive than Ebay, then why do I need to come here? I did get my wife a Tom Nook amiibo because she loves that game on the switch, as it was $14 out the door, and its her birthday this week.

2nd and Charles is a neat place, but I mainly look at it for books and movies/shows.

They CAN have some neat games, but a lot of their stuff is just a bit over priced in my experience.

I've heard there are other retro game stores around my area, but I've never been able to find them.

I wish that we had one locally, as it looked like a really great place to shop around. I only spent maybe 5-10 minutes in there, as it was packed, and I was mainly looking for retro games. Most of their cool stuff in was in a long glass case that lined the check out line.
