Collecting, Retro gaming

A bit from my personal collection

I finally have started to sort out my collection a bit. I have been collecting for around 15 years but I have never really had anything on display..so it’s pretty exciting digging through all the storage boxes and uncover all kinds of junk, treasures, surprises..

I’m primarily a sealed collector meaning I like my stuff mint and untouched..that has shown more and more difficult over the last few years. We have seen an extreme rise in the number of people collecting as a result prices for popular and rare items have skyrocketed.

My focus has primarily been on adventure games from the mid eighties to around 1994-95. I really like the old big boxes a lot. In my opinion the boxes kinda change to the worse in the mid nineties..the boxes started to get even bigger but with no content to fill them.. usually only a cd and a small insert. Their design went to a flimsy metrosexual box with bad artwork..ok maybe I just don’t like them very much just like those damn jewel cases.

Spanning well over a decade my collection has expanded from just “a few” games, I loved and played as a kid, to well over 3000 sealed games. Some rare, some expensive, some cheap, some obscure…

In the future I’ll post more info on collecting, where to look, who to know, how to bid/trade/buy, search mechanisms, bid sniping etc… and of course show some pretty exciting stuff from my own personal collection.

Below is a few snapshots showing a bit of sorting and display – much more to come.
