How Long I've Been Actively Collecting

Been playing videogames since 1980. Buying since 1982. Rabidly collecting since 1995.

Possessions In My Collection I'm Most Proud Of

All my old original games that I've had since I was a kid, Famicom and Super Famicom stuff, Star Rider and DarkStalkers marquees, Super Metroid baseball cap.

Other Tidbits/Comments

Fads in gaming come and go but kickass games are fun forever...I like playing Elevator Action as much as I like playing Street Fighter Alpha. Age doesn't matter. I also like to snap up any game memorabilia/paraphenalia I can find--arcade marquees, posters, boardgames, toys, and other assorted junk. Dying to get into arcade machine collecting but I can't seem to get started. Got a soft spot for laserdisc arcade games and Samus Aran. Very lucky that my girlfriend is a videogame addict too...! :)
