You have $300 what do you buy?

Recommended Posts

Analogue Interactive joystick for my CMVS - $200

Either Windjammers or Strikers 1945 Plus MVS cart - $100 ('Jammers is a little under $100 and Strikers is a little over...)

 

OR

 

Snatcher for Sega CD - $300

 

OR

 

$300 worth of studio lighting (for gaming videos on YouTube, so it's tangentially gaming-related)

 

If I had a Neo Geo MVS, this would be my choice. Windjammers > those three flash carts combined. I could play Windjammers until the day I die, as my last and final game, and love every second of it.

I would use all the money to increase outrageously my Atari collection with some missing commons, getting a Harmony cart or getting some CIB for my Colecovision collection, even I could buy an Intellivision and some games.

It's definitely at the top of my want-list. Coincidentally, a few hours after posting that, I found a copy of Strikers on NG.com for $90 shipped, so that's a nice pickup. If I could find Windjammers and Neo Drift Out for reasonable prices, my Neo library would be basically complete (in that I would have the all of the games that I want, aside from some common ones that I can pick up any time.)

I'd probably put it towards an XBone (AC Unity is coming), but in the classic world, I'd really like to get an Astrocade (or equivalent). I'd also like to get some stuff from Best Electronics like the joystick rebuild kits and an XE lightgun. I also have a hard time resisting loose GB/A games, but I've already got almost everything I want in that area.

Refurbed PC Engine briefcase setup, which I could get for about 220. That's a PC Engine, the CD unit (working!) the av interface, a controller and all the cords.

 

The rest would go to getting some sweet PC-E games.

A Vectrex! :-D

I already have a Multicart on the way to have a headstart on games..

 

Some overlays, modded Genesis controller and Madtronix 3D imager would be nice bonuses too. ;)

I'd buy a Famicom Disk System and a giant lot of Famicom games, after which I'd slowly start selling off my NES collection.

 

I'm changing my tune. Now with $300 I'd plop down on a few TG-16, Saturn, and PS1 games that I want, but can't justify the price of owning just yet.

Anal, must be a game for the odyssey that I've never played. I think I'd go with a 5200 and a stack of games. Especially Robotron with the dual controller holder.

Well, a year later I have an Analogue Interactive stick, Strikers, and Windjammers. Don't really need the lighting anymore, but I would definitely still love to have Snatcher. Not sure that I really have anything new to add to the list...

Web wars, Spike, Fortress of Narzod, and pole position for the vectrex. At least I'm going to try.

Here's the deal, you have $300 and...

A vicious rumor! But if I had $300 to blow, I'd buy a small heap of flash carts.
