Wow i never thought of looking up retro gaming topics on ATS!
My favorite is definitely the NES. I have many good memories playing the original NES with my family as a kid.... too many hours to even begin to
count! Unfortunately, i pawned all my games growing up to buy 'cigarettes' and beer
This was a costly mistake, as i have been actively buying all
my collection back since about 4 months ago.
I'm having fun now though, hunting games on Craigslist, flea markets and thrift stores.... it's like a hobby now
I'm a pretty picky collector
though, games have to be mint condition CiB (complete in box) and only English writing.. I come from the Quebec province just on the border to Ottawa
so some games had bilingual covers and a big no no for my collection.
I really enjoy the Game Boy Advance SP, i recently picked up the Classic NES GBA for 10$ (score!). I've been building a collection of boxed games for
this system as well, since i had a blue GBA for quite a quite now and a few games for it.
TurboGrafx-16 and the Neo Geo are some of my other top systems, harder to collect for also...
