Favorite Games

My favorite types of games are flight sims, but I think my favorite game on a home system would have to be Rocketball on my ol' Commodore 64. Great two player game for beatin' up on your friends

Favorite System

Atari 2600, the system which I mainly collect for. This was my first system as a kid, and with the hundreds and hundreds of games for it, it makes it the best system to "bulk up" on

What Systems I Own And Collect For

I mainly collect for the well known systems. Vectrex, Atari 26/52/78, Colecovision, and Intellivision. I'll pick up the other stuff too, but usually only for trade bait

How Many Games I Own For Each System

I've got a few handfulls of games for most of the systems I collect, but my Atari 2600 collection is currently the biggest, with somewhere around 400 titles. (Yes, there are duplicates **sigh**)

How Long I've Been Actively Collecting

Since around 1991, I would guess - about the same time I got on the net and found out about r.g.v.c. and related newsgroups

Possessions In My Collection I'm Most Proud Of

My proudest possessions are, unfortunately, the ones that I have already traded away. I'm not sorry that I traded them, but I do miss owning them at times - those games were Chase the Chuckwagon with box and manual, Waterworld complete, Music Machine w/dox, and Tooth Protectors. *sniffle*

Other Tidbits/Comments

While collecting and playing is the main reason I am in the hobby, I have to admit I also like the "wheeling and dealing" of trading, selling, and auctions. Usually, when I do sell things, the money is put back into the hobby somehow, so maybe that will muffle the complaints. My other hobby is in the area of "artistic" videography/photography. I'll leave it up to you to figure out what "artistic" means :-)
