of course, I didn't realize until it was too late, that I had in fact begun 'collecting' games/consoles/computers, but over the past couple of years, I've been collecting 'technology' in general
it all started out innocently enough...
apart from the consoles in pictures, I have duplicates of most of them, in my basement (original Xbox, I have per example four of)
the VHS collection is steadily growing and I am trying to weed out the crappy movies from said collection
the big box games are a variety of C64/Amiga 500/PC, whilst the DVD-cased games are top-shelf PC-only, bottom-shelf various consoles
I also have more controllers than I really have any use for...
the radio is standing behind the door, at the moment, due to me rearranging a few things; I mainly use it to play cassette-tapes, from the 80's - 90's (mixed tapes, etc.) and also as a radio
I also have 5 laptops, one very old pentium 75Mhz Toshiba being the oldest - the others varying between 700Mhz -> 2.0Ghz (dual-core the fastest)
and of course a basement filled with computer-parts, which I have been slowly shrinking, due to my Wife kinda wanting to utilize some space down there, as well
in the living-room there's another Playstation 3, a Playstation 4 and a Nintendo Wii
apart from the handhelds in the photograph, I also have a GBC that just broke (was my main handheld the past couple of years), a PSP (original), a Nokia NGage (because, why not?) and 2 Palm Pilot V's with accessories
and of course two main-computers; one for me and one for my wife - currently located in the living-room
on one hand I don't really care for 'collecting' old consoles and games, especially not these days, since people have gone crazy with prices, but on the other hand I actually play all my consoles/games (of course not all games, but the ones I do end up purchasing - no game is just left 'standing on a shelf' in this house.)
the Sega MegaDrive/32X/MegaCD combo is my proudest piece in the console-collection, whilst my Amiga 1200 /w 4MB expanded RAM (and 40Mhz FPU, which I'll never have a use for), as well as a 4GB CF-card with Workbench 3.1 and a registered version of WHDLoad (technical jargon for anyone who cares)
of course I grew up on the C64, so the one computer getting the most attention in this room is the C128 (for those not in the know, a C128 has a C64 'mode', to play all the C64 games as well)
the lack of disks and disk-drives for the Amiga's and the C128 is due to me using flash-drives and USB-sticks these days instead
also a handful of monitors (got rid of my CRT's last year, unfortunately) and a variety of old cellphones (Nokia and Ericsson, mainly, but an LG, Motorola, etc. tossed in here and there, as well)
basically, as I keep telling people - once The Apocalypse(TM) hits, I'll be your go-to guy when it comes to media-entertainment.
Immortal until proven otherwise
I also create video-games; https://lord-santa.itch.io/
