I plan on keeping my XBOX 360 for modern games, my Heavy Sixer, and 7800 for classic games, and perhaps my NES for a early transitional period system. I have already sold my Colecovision, Intellivision, C64, and Odyssey I & II.

 

I have second thought about getting rid of my Saturn because it is a good system in my eyes, as well as the Genesis, and Dreamcast.

 

Please put your truthful input in because I have several of these systems I need to clear out because space is more valuable than things to fill space.

 

 

Thanks,

 

James

since you're already keeping the heavy sixer, 7800 and the nes i say keep the sega genesis/32x/cd set up and if you really like the dreamcast and saturn keep those too.

 

also if it's just space that's an issue and not money, keep the portables.

Definitely the Dreamcast... not only are there great games for it, but it can emulate most of the other systems on your list.

I got rid of old game systems and computers at various times, mostly because I needed money. I regret getting rid of them. Each item represents a specific time in my past. Not only did the systems and computers go, but so did the games and any programs I created.

 

Although I don't have my original Atari 2600, at least I have most of my games, although I traded some of them away which I mentally kick myself for once in a while.

 

If your old systems are part of your past, find a way to keep them, even if you have to seal them up in plastic containers and ask a trustworthy relative to keep them for you for a while.

I'd say keep the Gameboy and maybe the Nomad too. You could store them both and a decent sized library of games in a shoebox, so they're hardly space killers. Also, as portable systems with a very specific feel to them, emulation is less likely to cut it.

Keep the portables, they eat very little space, and are over all cheap to maintain and get new games for.

 

Also the Dreamcast, short of good handheld emulation, it can emulate just about everything else on your list.

 

Other than that, most of my favorite games are on the SNES, though that would depend on what games you like. And you already said you were keeping the Atari.

Keep them all! And get back the ones you lost. NEVER get rid of things no matter what the reasons. Regret is a terribly painful thing.

Atari 2600 if you could only keep one :)

But thats what I grew up with, keep which ever one was your first system growing up. They are the most important.

I'll throw this out there... Since a 7800 can run all 2600... why not get rid of the 2600?

Try playing Starmaster on the 7800 and you'll see why you might want to keep the 2600 around.

I'd keep the PS2 if you had a lot of games for it. Otherwise the Dreamcast because its a very well rounded system and it has emulators. If you have a regular XBOX, mod it and put emulators on that and you can get rid a lot of stuff including the N64.

Keep the DC and use it for emulation of the others, plus their own great games......

 

 

I'm a Dreamcast junkie.....

 

Amen!!! :D

 

Oh, and I'd keep the NES, Genesis (w/out 32X and CD), 7800, and PS2.

Dont get rid if any of em,

Ditch the master and get a power base converter for the genesis

 

IK your big into TI/99 but that will need to go as well, not exactially a small system :P

 

Never get rid of the nomad, or ull have a hell of a time getting it back, or you will end up paying 80-100

I picked the DC. I love the games I have for the Dreamcast, plus when it comes to graphics, it really isn't too shabby. Crazy Taxi still looks pretty nice to me even though the DC first made its debut 8 years ago. Runner up for me would be the Saturn... I'm not really sure why. Perhaps I just enjoyed NiGHTS enough that I really don't see myself ever getting rid of the system. It's just a nifty system.

 

And next up would be the Genesis/CD/32x combo... that gives you a pretty big library of games to choose from. And besides - who doesn't like the idea of a genesis that is pimped out to the max? :P

I dont see too many DC games around here and when they are around they are outrageously priced, so for me, Fuck Dreamcast, tho i do have some nice backed up games :)
