God damn... some of you people have so many games.

6 Retail (NSMBU, Zombi U, Rayman Legends, Mario Kart 8, Sm4sh, Splatoon)

1 Digital Retail (Pikmin 3)

6 Virtual Console (Mega Man X, X2, X3, 4, 5, Kirby's Dream Land 3) (I own Mega Man 2,3 and 6 on my 3DS, I don't just have 4 & 5)

4 eShop (Shovel Knight, Edge, NES Remix, ... and Meme Run)

TOTAL: 17 games



Soon to get Super Mario Maker, Xenoblade Chronicles X, and possibly Fast Racing Neo or Earthbound.

Trust me purplewalrus, I know I have way too many games. It's ridiculous in many ways. I'm 44 and have crazy amounts of games. Just a few examples - these are approximates: 

130 Sega Saturn, 100 PlayStation 1, 140 Sega Dreamcast, 180 Xbox 360, 200+ PS3 and already all I listed for Wii U and 30+ for each of my XB1 & PS4. That's not even all my consoles/handhelds and their libraries. That's a glimpse. I have Panasonic 3DO, Neo Geo (console & pocket), Atari Jaguar and many, many others. Do you think I have beaten' all I own? Heck no. Even half? Not close. I collect. It's an obsession or a sickness - lol! I have so much there's no way I can remotely finish them all. There's not enough hours in the day. But it's one of my few obsessive hobbies. I love owning them and popping in any number of Genesis, Gameboy, PS2 game I want, at any time. However, it is bad I don't beat more. It's likely my Adult ADHD that I hop from game to game or perhaps I'm afraid I'll miss something if I at least don't own it. I am the perfect age. I have lived through every system since the Atari 2600 on...sorry F-Channel. 

Perhaps others who have crazy huge libraries finish every game, but I'll admit I don't. I just keep adding to the collective. Don't remotely envy my crazy collection - maybe even pity me - LOL. Just enjoy thoroughly what you get and play when you can. That's the important thing. Just love the hobby. Never be a hater. All systems offer great games, yes even the Atari Jaguar have a couple gems in its library. Video games and its history is just too awesome! 

Game on everyone. 

Have a great Christmas and happy New Year. 


Wow, that's a lot of gaems. Lol I too sometimes like to buy games just for the feeling of opening it up for the first time or to add to my collection, but to a (much) lesser extent than you. Sometimes I feel like I don't have enough, but then I'm reminded to enjoy what I already have. Enjoy growing your collection, man. ;)

About what you said about the Atari Jaguar, I agree. From what I can tell, its port of Doom is pretty good.

Yes, Doom was a very good port. Aliens vs Predator was excellent. As far as I'm concerned it was their greatest game. Man, back in the day it scared the poo out of me - LOL. The funny thing was that what made it so scary was likely partially a hardware shortcoming. It didn't have music playing during your exploring the ship you were on so as you explored it was complete silence except for the occasional noises that creatures made and it was then that the hair on your neck would rise!! Oh man I could only play that for short periods with the lights on! I scare easily anyway though - lol! 

Yeah, just always enjoy what you got. It's all about the fun!
