My Small Video Game Collection

Recommended Posts

I'm excited to show you guys my small video game collection! It's not huge, but I consider it to be big enough for now! :)

 

First of all, I have pretty much all of my video game stuff in this Sega retail display case. From what I know, this type of display case is quite rare.

On the top of the display case, I have my Atari 2600 ("Light Sixer"), along with a Wii Mini box and a wooden pixel Mario and Luigi (which I made) in the background.

On the display case's top shelf, I have some assorted video game stuff. One of the main attractions for my video game collection is my CIB NES Action Set! I also have a few Atari 2600 cartridges lined up in the front.

At the bottom of the display case, I have some more assorted video game stuff.

I did forget to take a picture of my "gaming desk", where I have my Wii Mini, a CRT TV, a Game Boy clock, and a few other things.

 

That's pretty much it for my collection! I hope you guys enjoyed looking! :)

August 2019 Update

 

I got an Atari 2600 Pac-Man certificate, an Activision Dragster patch with a "repro" letter, and Rubik's Cube for the Atari 2600!

Cool stuff you added there! As for the repro letter? I'd toss it and some day try to get a real one. It's just a hunk of paper and the patch displays just fine without it. :)

September 2019 Update

 

I got Mappy for the Atari 2600, a NOS Rubik's Cube, and an E.T. wallet!

I also rearranged my "game cabinet" (my Sega retail display case), but I didn't know if you guys would be interested to see a picture of it.

 

That's all for now! I'll provide another update next month! :)

First of all, I have pretty much all of my video game stuff in this Sega retail display case. From what I know, these type of cases are quite rare. All I know about this thing is that my dad had this sitting in the basement for a long time, so I asked him if I could have it and he said yes. It also has lighting, but I need to get some clear shelves for light to shine through each shelf.

 

IMG_0251.thumb.JPG.250d3133ccea8377d7061bf0fd89ec1b.JPG

 

On the top of the case, I have my Atari 2600 Sunnyvale Light Sixer, along with a Wii Mini box and a wooden Mario and Luigi (which I made) in the background.

 

IMG_0252.thumb.JPG.021b28dfccfb19e0299f31ce4feb58c7.JPG

 

On the case's top shelf, I have some assorted video game goodness. The main attraction in the case is the NES Action Set CIB with CIB and loose games that my dad's friend gave to me! I also have a few loose Atari 2600 games lined up in the front.

 

IMG_0253.thumb.JPG.529c2a2e00f890df41fa138b96c478e3.JPG

 

At the bottom of my case, I have most of my collection of Atari 2600 arcade ports. I also have some CIB Atari 2600 games, but I forgot to take a picture of them. I also  forgot to take a picture of my gaming desk, where I have my Wii Mini ("worst Nintendo console ever", which it isn't), mini TV, Game Boy clock, and a few other things.

 

IMG_0254.thumb.JPG.5db6e3e5eb70902035bade6afba74c22.JPG

 

Behold, to all of the video game collectors out there! This is my "secret" drawer of BNIB video game stuff! As you can tell, I love bubble wrap! For the Atari 2600, I have Robot Tank, Battlezone, and Defender. I also have an NES and SNES Classic Edition. The prize of my collection is the Game Boy Pocket in the bottom left corner!

 

IMG_0256.thumb.JPG.4c2bd96c2e6ad01709b90ffee56c391b.JPG

 

That's pretty much it for the collection! I hope you all enjoyed looking! I will provide updates to stuff that I get for the collection in the future.

I love it! Such a nice display too

Here are some pictures of my newly organized display case! I would like to eventually get some more shelves for my display case. I also plan to have my Atari 2600 ("Light Sixer") hooked up to my TV, but there's not enough space to put it near my TV for right now.

November 2019 Update

 

I got Enduro for the Atari 2600, an Enduro race car, an advertisement of Mario Bros. for the Atari 2600 and 5200, an NES Advantage controller, Hogan's Alley for the NES, Dragster and Video Pinball for the Atari 2600, and some CIB Atari 2600 games (Joust, Vanguard, Battlezone, and Kangaroo)!

I dig the setup- I like how you find related tat to display alongside the games. It's a fairly unique presentation (probably becuase you can only get away with it with a smaller collection. Or a LOT of space.)

 

I'm trying to remember what my collection was like when I was 17... I'm pretty sure it was just my old PlayStation, the former family Genesis, and a Gameboy Color. Oh, and a box of Atari stuff in the closet I couldn't actually use. I don't think my collection really got going until after graduation.

I can't believe that I had forgot to show this before! I had bought this months ago, but I never posted about it. The next item I had previously bought is this advertisement for Mario Bros. on the Atari 2600 and 5200. I had previously bought Mario Bros. for the Atari 2600, but I've presented it here for looks. I may have overpaid for the advertisement ($17) because it's just cut out from a comic book! However, it does look awesome! :P

There's a lot of craft stores that sell comic-book sized frames, if you'd rather not have the float mat look here. They're not expensive- less than $10.

It loads and plays most of the time; however, it seems like the circuit board inside the cartridge is a little loose (which makes the game not load sometimes). Maybe I need to get a special screwdriver so I can disassemble it and see what the problem is.

Might I recommend one of these? It's a basic lil' set that'll open a good 90% of the game carts out there. If you think you could get serious about tinkering, this set got recommended in another thread, and it's fairly comprehensive for all gaming things. Otherwise, a gamebit pair can easily be had on Ebay for about 2 bucks, if you can wait for shipping from China- a bit harder to use without a driver handle, but it's possible.

I figured that there were frames for comic books, but I never thought about getting a special frame for it at the time. The frame that I used for this was from a bundle pack (three 8.5" x 11" frames for $4.00), so I just used one of those.

Yes. Focus. These smaller-sized collections can be more interesting compared against the WOW Mega-Sized all-inclusive millionaire "efforts". Those collections just go down a list checking off boxes. They're all the same. A room full of cartridges. The videogame equivalent of a loud motorcycle going up and down the streets of those "old-people" boutique towns. The rider as senile as the residents.
