My collection more or less exceeds this guy's. Perhaps slightly less focused on software with much much greater focus on hardware. My shit is mancave central with small tasteful rotating displays in the main living areas (wife and kid zone).

These kind of photos where a person's collection of any kind actually gets its own bedroom certainly are meaningful. I think most of these type of "game rooms" belong to people who have become fairly well-off and more recently acquired their collections while mine has just been accumulated for decades.

240p is still an analog, standard definition signal. Your TV will likely treat it the same as 480i but without the interlacing jaggies and without the composite bleed that looks terrible upscaled.

>Debt is for suckers.
I agree somewhat, but you shouldn't be so quick to judge others. Many people (in America) go on to college with no idea about debt or finances at all. Even if you go through the federal financial aid program (grants or loans), you receive the barest minimum of information about the kinds of debts you may be incurring and what that responsibility entails. I've known students who were accepting the full amount of unsubsidised(!) Stafford loans each quarter whether they needed it or not, unaware that interest was building from that moment.

Of course, it's in the lender's best interest to keep the debtor in the dark, because that means more interest accrues over the life of the loan. Financial institutions, as we've all seen, are way to eager to extend credit to people who in no way should be granted it.

You don't need to play a game from start to finish to play it though. I've been playing games for almost four decades now, but have probably only actually completed less than ten percent of them.

I kind of feel the same.
There is a rather large collection of games I don't really like, maybe 10% of games I actually really fucking dislike. But more like 30% of the games I own I don't enjoy playing, and likely will never touch again.

The issue I have is why should I get rid of them? A lot of them I bought when they were new, and paid 60 bucks for. At best a lot of them I'd be lucky to get 10-15 bucks for, but I'd also have to deal with the selling process, posting an ebay ad, answering endless craigslist emails, etc. Most of the games commonly regarded as shit are cheap as fuck. There are only a handful of really bad games that are even expensive, and thats just due to collector bullshit and rarity.

For me, its not worth it to sell my games. So you can be pissed all you want that I think Deathtrap Dungeon, ODT: Escape or Die Trying, Another World, are garbage and will "rot" on my shelf. You can also be pissed that I probably will never beat games like Xenogears, because its boring, and how I'll never play any of my Zelda games again because I think the series is pretty awful. Or how the only time I play Steel Battalion is when some friends come over and ask about it, because while its cool, its learning curve is basically vertical and its not that fun to play.

There is no reason to be mad about other peoples possessions. Collections, or what they choose to do with their things.

How did I know this question was next? Probably because I knew you weren't willing to answer the preceding questions. I'm sure "effort" indeed seems suspicious to someone willing to assert their choice but not put in the effort to defend it when questioned.

"Well, it has no NEGATIVE impact on my life" usually isn't a justification for doing anything. It's clear that asking you to apply reasoning to your choices is making your brain hurt, so I'll back down.

Probably because you knew you were being very pushy about how someone else chooses to conduct their personal life. I'm not "defending" my choice because I see no reason to. I'm stating that I'm perfectly happy keeping my old games around because I have no real reason to sell them off and you are trying to make me "justify" it for some reason. I need no justification because have nothing to justify.

Yeah man, I don't get it either. Like, I recently saw that video by AVGN about how Mike hooks up all his consoles. Hooks them all up via fucking composite to an HDTV without even the shittiest of scalers.

I just don't fucking get it. I could understand someone who just casually digs their old consoles up and wants to play them not being concerned with this sort of stuff, but we're talking about an avid collector who has dozens of retro consoles and hundreds and hundreds of games. How the FUCK are you going to be that into retro games and spend all that money on stuff without even bothering to display it on a proper screen (or use a scaler) and without even using anything better than composite? It seriously baffles my fucking mind.

I started the whole discussion on how it was silly to hang on to objects you don't like. By replying, you were in fact defending yourself, even though I wasn't criticizing you specifically. If you really didn't feel a need to justify it, you wouldn't have bothered saying anything. You seem to think that you can assert an idea without having to support it, but when someone else does it (and IS willing to support it), they're "being pushy."

On top of that, you basically asked me to back down by way of refusing to participate further in the discussion and instead saying "well why do you care anyway?" /I relented,/ and yet here you are, continuing to "not justify" yourself.

Dude, I was about to write about how I can't get how stacking horizontally is more convincing, until I realised what you actually meant.

But in some compartments they are two discs high and I don't see what's the big deal is. It's definitely much less work than trying to get one of the lowest boxes from the vertical stack, which I have to deal with. Especially if they are big.

So this is my le nerd collection, it contains 49 games, 40 without duplicates:

MK3 ULTIMATE - beat with luck on normal or something as sub zero

Sonic the hedgehog - done

Tiny toon adventures - awesome game, reached last level set as a kid, then reached it again on an emulator in teens and somewhat later have actually beaten it on the console (IIRC)

Spider-man vs. Kingpin - dat fucking final boss, I swear I'll fuck him over some time later, very solid game overall

Battletoads - finished quite quickly, tho doing the nes version on emulator was starting from the square one - whether I lost my skills or they don't translate from sega, or the game is just harder which I hear it is

Streets of Rage - I think I finished it on normal (or maybe easy), definitely reached the final boss. Watching the credits on youtube I don't really recall them... Fucking memory.

Ariel the little mermaid - beaten, 10/10 worth playing only as Ariel

Robocop 3 - don't remember, I guess it was 3rd or 4th level that I got stuck in, remember flying part

Rambo 3 - done, brilliant soundtrack, fucking genius

Duke nukem 3D - have to remember the layouts and enemies, and everything, no saves = your ass is fucked unless you have a spare genesis to just keep this game on pause - at least it gives infinite continues. Got to level 2, if not even 3. Pretty cool, but as I said...

Boogerman - done, great

Mutant chronicles: doom troopers - at first it's like wow now we're talking, but then it's like fuck this game - got quite far though, remember ice and lava levels; not bad, but not great either

Battletech - brilliant, but hard as fuck

Dune: the battle for arrakis - awesome stuff, done it

Top gear 2 - great racing game, but my 10in1 has a glitch which doesn't let you pass some point after 2 sets of countries or something

Battletoads and double dragon - 2ez4me, nes version again is harder for same reasons with unknown priorities

Side pocket - kinda cool to chill

Hockey - hockey

Tom&Jerry - done, good

Chase HQ 2 - done, noice

Championship pro am - once you get controls down it's super fun, but I got kinda stuck in the middle - like 8th level or something

Alien III - this arsehole. Actually got to final boss, lost all conts, got there again, lost and went fuck this game I'm done

Double dragon II - dat lag, actually finished tho

Granada - got quite far, don't remember finishing - I think 9th level or something

Sunset riders - beat it, don't remember if normal or easy, I think it was normal

Batman - the shit, beat it. There was also Batman and robin, got to like 5th level

Golden Axe 2 - never got to the end, tho close

Micro machines - just can't into controls

Bart vs space mutants - 4/10, finished 1 level

Jurassic park - got to second level

Incredible hulk - obviously unfinished game, done, music's good though

Super wrestle mania - meh

X-men - great game, hard as fuck - at least felt like that

Some racing game named "NFS undercover" - meh

What sort of reply is that? Judging naive autistic retards like those you describe was exactly his point. You don't have to know pretty much anything in order to put two and two together in your mind. It's elementary logic: if I end up losing money, it's bad and I should avoid it. That's why schizoids and sociopaths are seen as so fucking intelligent: they merely use the simplest logical reasoning, instead of ruminating over hope, faith, denial, procrastination out of anxiety and all sorts of this kind of stinking garbage, that just accumulates and rots in the house of your consciousness.

Since you're still around here, what version of Densha de GO are you playing? Are you knowledgeable in this series? I imported controller several months ago and it's a great fun, can't think of any game which is better to play at 4 a.m before going to bed. Can't figure out some things about it, though, and there's zero information in English, besides one dead forum. Do you know anything about unlocking trains? I completed all routes one 1 credit in the first region of DDG 3, but for some reason there's one train(Kiha 58) in the rankings board which isn't in train selection. I assume it's locked but don't know any requirements to access it.
Also if it's a PS1 controller, have you tried playing PS2 games with it? I know that DDG3 works, but Final doesn't. Do you know if it works with DDG: Professional 2?

You basically make a paste with the base ingredient being a high-strength hydrogen peroxide and you put it on yellowed ABS plastic and let it stay out in the sun all day. It gets rid of the yellowing not by merely "bleaching" the plastic, but by actually reversing the oxidation that caused the plastic to yellow in the first place.

It's not just a cosmetic thing either. Yelllowed plastic is also more brittle and is liable to chip or break apart

There's nothing wrong with being 20, starting gaming on the PS2 or considering a poster of skyrim to be good. If that's what he enjoys, more power to him.

I can't imagine just leaving hardware running without someone playing it. Seems like a waste of resources and like it would wear the hardware down.

That said, I'm not much for displaying games. I usually display a few simple things, like figures and posters, and keep all my games/consoles in plastic storage containers. When I want to play something, I put away what I have out, put its box back in the storage area, and take out another box.

Not for solid state systems unless you have shit electricity and no protection between your systems and the wall. Optical systems maybe but I've left a PS2 running for years and it was fine. The games were running from the hard drive though.

I wish that we had more stuff like that in the US. I'm already well-off thanks to my parents, so I didn't have to worry about loans, but I feel for all of my friends who are graduating with debt on their shoulders. It's even worse if they find that they aren't really enjoying the work they get and end up going back to school.

I like many things about the US, but our education system and the cost of higher education needs some serious rethinking.

But this isn't really /vr/ territory.

That's cool. To me MH is like a glorious mix of Animal Crossing with a boss rush game. Super chill when you want it to be, super intense when you want that. But not for everyone and that's what's so great about games.

That one level of Bangai-O fairly near the end where it's mostly this huge open area just filled to the tits with enemies and robot spawning things is endless fun.

Also Guardian Heroes. We would spend whole days going through different routs and having crazy arena battles. Treasure, you so great!

What I would do in my ideal one.

>comfortable, but not huge furniture
My friend has like, these fucking huge couches that take up the whole room and you have to squeeze behind to get out of the room. Its the dumbest setup ever.

I'd get a nice recliner, or a 3 person couch. Sectionals are too big and never orient right to the TV.

>adequate storage and shelving
Custom shelves that fit your collection well. I like to have a blank wall where my TV is so its not distracting.

I would also paint it a neutral colour, a white, grey, or like a soft taupe/light brown.

A small media center that houses the consoles with no exposed wires/cables

Probably a mini-fridge or some kind of snack bar somewhere thats convenient so you can grab a soda.

End tables on either side of the couch, and a small coffee table with some storage potential.

Couch not too far from the TV to account for cord length.

Not the guy you quoted, but this is old information. Newer LCD TV's have near zero lag now. For example, KDL42W705B has 8ms latency compared to a reference CRT.

Run it through a low/no latency line doubler like the XRGB3, and bam.

Any dense city is cyber when you're actually there, New York, Chicago and Seattle are overwhelmingly huge when you're in your shitty studio packed with hardware and pizza boxes. In Seattle and Munich I can personally verify there is lot of shit right out of cyberpunk novels, there are people doing weird things with shortwave radio and meshnets, people have BBSs you can dial into still. The underground (like the physical underground) is vast and you can explore it for miles and always find something new, just weird off rooms in tunnels, bizzare shit in general. There are so many people that no one cares about you, I've never felt truly alone outside of a big city, I've lived in average sized towns and suburbs and it feels so bad living there.

Can we be real for a minute here? You must understand that there's a difference between giving a different perspective or opinion on a matter and doing so with obvious shitposting and internet troll mentality.

If you really truly don't see why everyone calls you a troll. If you think you're engaging in a conversation in the way that normal grown up people do, then you seriously need to reevaluate how you interact with people.

Please don't respond to this, that's not what this is about. I really have no interest in the kind of response you would post here anyways. Just think about it with yourself and honestly ask why you act this way.

If you like just trolling for troll's sake, and I've fallen for your delicious bait then whatever. Troll away, you're at the right place for it at least. But if you think you're being level headed and reasonable... take a good look at your life. Seriously.

>I just bought a bunch of retro vidya all in one shot! Is that enough to up my retro cred? Nevermind the appalling amount of bootlegs.

Can anyone isolate what it is specifically about this thread that made it such a fucking mess? It started out innocently but come the fuck on

>started out innocently enough

No it fucking didn't, the OP wrote like a retarded teenager posted an annoying sterile showpiece collection featuring console boxes and a fucking LCD. This was guaranteed to bring in collectorfags, emulatorfags, shits who supposedly believe that owning anything retro is stupid and you should never share anything retro with people (despite being on fucking /vr/), people who shitpost about collectors not being "legitimate enthusiasts" and about a thousand other retarded warring opinions. It was a perfect fucking storm and the mods should have deleted it from the get go, but we don't even have mods judging by the retron threads

Well, let's see it. To someone else the grass is always greener and you'll be making them jelly.

Sure, sure. No reason not to I suppose. No money for a camera so phone pic is the best I can offer.

Here's my little shrine. Yes, what you're seeing is on top of a dresser inside whats basically an open closet. I have a weight bench about a foot out from this which I sit on to play. It's kinda alright because it seats me at perfect eye-level with the tv and has just enough room for two people.

Not pictured is my little cabinet with my other NES controllers and a humble collection of Pokemon cassettes.

The collection may be growing a little bit this week if this fellow on kijiji would respond about selling me a couple of his games...

So the problem isn't shitposters, but people who make threads of any description on /vr/ which then lure in shitposters.

Solution: shut down /vr/.

Guys I think it's important to differentiate here the difference between collector and enthusiast. Clearly this guy is a collector not an enthusiast.
