So, have you ever gotten every single title available for a system? I've completed a couple of domestic sets (Virtual Boy & Pokemon mini), but have never been able to get *everything* released for a single system.

How about you? Ever get close?

I had a complete US Virtual Boy colection with a couple Japan titles also. I unfortunately had to sell it but I got way more for selling it then what I paid for it so I was happy.

No. And I probably never will. I gotta admire the folks that do, though. That's a lot of dedication. I collect games that are fun or have some nostalgic or other redeeming value. Anything else just takes up space :P If I were to ever partake in such a quest, though, I would do it for either the Lynx or the 7800. I do have all of the NES games that were released for the e-Reader, though :)

I've got a few complete sets. I've got all the Epyx 2600 titles, and all the Starpath titles that had "normal" releases with boxes and artwork.
I've got boxes for all the PS1 Command & conquer titles, and I've got all four North American Gran Turismo games. Give me a bit and I'll have all the North American SaGa titles, too.

I have all the Fairchild Channel F games with boxes but I am missing 2 of the white zircon release labels also have all four system boxes

I have all the NTSC Odyssey^2 games and boxes and all the released systems with boxes

All the NTSC released Original Odyssey systems boxed and all boxed games and rifles and they are all complete with every single little dodad that came with them

Virtual Boy and all American Releases and most of the japan only releases

All orignal Released Jaguar games boxed, all system variants boxed, CD System boxed, All CD games in long boxes, most aftermarket games boxed except Battlesphere :mad:

All Lynx games boxed and all system variants boxed although I believe I am missing 2 of the big boxes and flat cartridge variants

I have to check but I think I have a boxed Emerson arcadia and all boxed games but I may be missing one.

I have alot of other systems that are 70-80 percent complete. I kind of focus on one system at a time until they are mostly complete and then I move on all the while working on my 2600 collection :cool: :party:

No, I don't have a complete collection on any of my systems. It's too hard to find every game for one or more systems. I guess if I ordered more games on the internet I could but I'm really not interested because I just collect what I want. I do wish I had a complete Atari 2600 VCS library though but that would take years, too much time.

The closest I'd come is to the Atari 7800. I can profess that I do own the 'Fabulous Eleven' which are:

Asteroids
Centipede
Desert Falcon
Dig-Dug
Food Fight
Galaga
Joust
Ms. Pac-Man
Pole Position II
Robotron: 2084
Xevious


But nothing complete yet.

I don't have any complete collections - not even close.

Compared to most people on here my collection is just beginning, most people think I have a lot of stuff though. I currently have 193 non-PC games on 16 platforms.

Up until recently I didn't buy classic games - I just never sell games. Almost every game I have I bought brand-new. My collection goes from NES to today. I have 50+ Atari 2600 games but I didn't buy those until well after the system was no longer the current video game system.

I guess my 2600 collection is closest to being complete, but with just 54 games I'm not even close.

I have a complete Playstation 1 and 2, Atari 2600 and ... Uh... not buying it, huh? :D

Actually, I have all 20 titles for the Game.Com system and I only need Krazy Ace Mini Golf to complete my Atari Lynx collection.

It's certainly a lot more feasible to complete collections for smaller systems like the Game.Com. I can't imagine how much time, money and storage space one would consume to complete a collection like the 2600.

Cheers,

You've got that fershulinger Wheel of Fortune 2????

Been trying to get that (complete) for years. It almost *never* shows up on eBay and when it does, it's usually in a bundle.

Harumph!

Yup! :D I got it off eBay, by itself, back in 10/01 for $5. No one else bid, partially cuz they wouldn't accept PayPal... always an auction killer.

I noticed that too, that ya never see it on eBay anymore. Of course, most of the Game.Com titles have become rather rare. I've been trying to find another copy of Batman & Robin and Duke Nukem. In the last 154 days, according to my eBay Search email list, it has only found one Duke and no Batmans. I can't even find a place to buy one for less than $30/$35. (GoAtari.com) So, like you, I watch and wait.

Oh, which reminds me, in my recent search for a Game.Com retailer, I did find one that claims to have WoF2... Video Game Source from Germany (videogamer.org), though they want 29.95 Euro for it.

Cheers,
Smeg

I'll probably never collect all the games for any particular system. I only get the games that I want to play, so a lot of the 'not-so-good' titles get left out of my collection.
