Favorite System

Well, probably the Atari 5200, because of its very good version of Joust. Then 2600, then Colecovision.

What Systems I Own And Collect For

Classic: Atari 2600, 5200, Intellivision, Colecovision, Vectrex
Modern: Atari Jaguar, Sega Genesis, SNES, NES

How Many Games I Own For Each System

Humm, about 200 Atari 2600 games, 25 Intellivision, 4 Coleco (at the moment) and 1 Vectrex cart (Star Trek, hope to get more in the future.) LOTS of modern stuff like Genesis/Saturn/PSX/SNES/NES

How Long I've Been Actively Collecting

Well I had a 2600, a CV and a Vectrex all back in Christmas '82 (when I got the CV and Vec.) I guess i started "collecting" about 84, when the local store "Zayres" went dumping 2600 games for $.50 Like London Blitz :)

Possessions In My Collection I'm Most Proud Of

Probably the Vectrex, but I would like to give it a good home someday (maybe in exchange for arcade parts.)

Other Tidbits/Comments

Just starting to get into Arcade collecting, I gave my entire Commodore collection to a friend (like 25 machines, and associated gear) because he wants to open a computer museum soon. Hope to oneday have a Joust and/or Robotron Arcade machine in my home, probably also Sinistar!
