I wanted to introduce myself since my permissions were finally approved today!
I am 28 years old and live in Kentucky. I have been gaming since I was 3 years old playing on the NES displays at my local Wal-Mart. My father told me he thought they were just for show until he realized I had a crowd of people standing around me watching me play Super Mario Bros. and actually completing levels.
Since then I have played all major platforms, and although I mainly play on the Xbox 360, I do love to occasionally throw in a classic from the NES, SNES, or Sega Genesis game and relive the old days. Because of this, I have started building up a collection of all my favorite games on those three systems and have toyed with the idea of collecting games and platforms of all kinds.
I found this site via Google when I was looking for sites dedicated to the hobby of collecting vintage games and systems.
My all-time favorite games are:
The Legend of Zelda - NES
Bubble Bobble - NES
Pigskin Footbrawl - Sega Genesis
General Chaos - Sega Genesis
Tecmo Super Bowl - SNES
Pretty Much All Mario Bros. Games
I look forward to meeting lots of cool people who enjoy this hobby and using the resources available from this site for adding to my collection!
