Here's the latest update on the game collection and game room. I got the room 75% done and have a link to the walk through video. Its a little long but a nice look at the layout and the games in my collection. Pictures sure to follow.

A beautiful collection. I especially like the 400/800 collection. I have a 400 and have often thought about starting collecting for it but, I'm off to a rather slow start with just Pac-Man and Moon Patrol. I wasn't able to watch the video - slow connection on my part. Maybe I'll see it some time from someone elses' computer.

I'd like to build a game room some day too so I can start building up my collections again.

Pac,

 

Building a game room is a cool project that is never quite done. You buy things , and things get moved around. One corner of my room gets moved around weekly cause im just not happy with its outcome.

 

The 400/800 collection has been a project of love on and off since the late 90s. I started off with my original 7 carts I had as a kid and have been slowly growing it ever since. First buying carts at garage sales in the late 90s and then Ebay starting in 2000-01. So yeah its taken me about 15 yrs to get to where I am now. Probably the most rewarding collection I have no matter how my other system collections go. Just something about this 8 bit series that makes it more interesting to collect and try to complete.

 

Im going to be adding more pics in the next week or so of my NES SNES Sega Genesis, game boy collections. (As they are small I like to try and get everything in here. Plus my 2600 collection this past week doubled to just over 120 games.

 

Pacman on the A8 is very arcade like. I like how they did it even though I dont have the patience to play it and concentrate that long. BUT its nicely done. Im still looking for Moon Patrol, strange that its one of the ones Im missing. I have a lead on one so we will see how it goes.

 

As I get interesting items Ill post them up on here. I have a youtube channel that has my weekly finds. Just something I like to putz around with.

They are 12 for $10.00 and each back has 2 so its 24 for $10. Very good price for an effective way to protect Atari 8 bit carts. I think I have about 90.00 invested in them and even if they seem a bit bulky on the shelf they are easy to label and organize on the shelves.

Very nice collection.

Those plastic cases are really cool. I imagine they are a bit bulky, but they would keep the dust out for sure!

Do you play your 400/800 games? I had an Atari 800 but it got destroyed when we moved. :(

I sure do make time. As I find more games I find new titles to plug in to play. But I love some of the classics. Blue max hardball pit stop pole position galaxian defender and many others.

 

Been making more time lately for the 2600 and super nes

Nice! I have a bunch of those early gameboy games. Alleyway is a great version of breakout, especially considering that it doesn't use a paddle controller.

arkanoid also was a good breakout kinda game. I remember playing it as a stand alone but if my memory serves me it also made it out on the NES Game boy also. I think breakout games can do quite well as pad controllers as well as with paddles. I guess it depends on how authentic you want to get with it.
