    Time to share pictures of my growing collection once again, especially after Luzur showed off his Might & Magic pics in another thread. I know the Hivemind can appreciate these :salute: .

    My collection has certainly grown since I last posted it. I've expanded into classic FPSers and Infocom games (GREAT extras!) as well as expanding on my cRPGs. I have most of the clue books/ strategy guides for each game with some being extremely hard to acquire like the Ultima III, Battlespire and Arena clue books. Finding them complete, down to the registration cards, posters, feelies, etc. was/ is difficult as there are few sites that show everything that originally came in the boxes. Sites like http://www.ultimacollectors.info/news.htm and http://www.accardi-by-the-sea.org/www.accardi-by-the-sea.org helped a lot. I always try and find the "Collector’s Edition", "Special Edition", or "Deluxe Edition" of a game such as the Signature edition of Ultima VI.

    My LucasArts and Infocom collection still has a ways to go. I also plan on acquiring King's Quest and Quest for Glory games. However, these games were released in many different versions I don't know which ones were the "first" release.

    I do need some help from my fellow Codexians both here and across the pond: In my collection I try to get any pre-order goodies, novels and clue books/ strategy guides for each game. Was there ever a clue book/ strat guide for these games: Entomorph, Tunnels & Trolls, Shadows Over Riva, Gothics, or Dusk of the Gods?

    Without further ado... behold my collection:

    Do you mean is each game complete? If so, then yes. I've made sure that they have everything that originally came in the box such as catalogs, posters, reg cards, etc.

    Fallout 3 GotY guide is pretty nicely done. If the same author does a FNV GotY guide I might pick it up. Even though the games are easy enough they're not needed, it was actually entertaining to flip through.

    This is what I keep telling myself to justify all the games I sold/gave away/frikkin threw out. What a fool I've been. But hey, I completed all of them!... ....... :(

    Anyway great collection :salute: ... with the exception of some truly, truly horrible stuff :lol: Still I guess it's not a real collection unless it has everything, good bad and ugly.

    Completed all the M & M, Elder Scrolls, Ultimas 5-9, EoBs, LoL 1 and 2, BoK, most FR games, only Wiz 6 & 7, most of the FPS (except for Descent 3 and Hexen II), all the Thief, Deus Ex (currently on Human Revolution) and System Shocks, all of the LucasArts adventures, most of the Star Wars and half the Star Trek. Played the start of a few of the Infocom games but haven't gotten very far. I'm embarrassed to admit it but I haven't played any of the Gold Box or Bard's Tale games. Also played Fallout 1 & 2 but never could play 3 and only started the beginning of NV.

    What can I say...I'm a completest :P

    Blasphemy! I'm a collector AND a gamer :love: Hell, it's because of my love of gaming that I wanted to go back and find many of these gems. Most games today just pale in comparison.

    Yet even I could not bring myself to buy Dragon Age II!!!

    Great collection, I like the arrangement of it all. And wow, I never knew they made so many Star Trek games.

    I never threw out any games, apart from some of those awful jewel case shovelware compilations that came out at the dawn of CD age(anyone who thinks everything was rosy in the olden days evidently never waded through the hundreds of shitware CD's of the time), but I did sell almost all of my 5 1/4 inch games and some early CD versions of stuff like Tie Fighter. :(

    He has sealed boxes. I would love to break into his apartment, open those sealed boxes and leave with the box contents lying around. I bet he'd feel like he just got raped.

    Very nice collection. I'm actually thinking whether I have anything you would want (as I'm thinking about selling off part of my collection) but I can't think of anything, you already have everything RPG-related that I have... and so much more.

    (Unless you count a sealed copy of the PC version of War of the Lance, but that's more one of them "strategery" games.)

    After some consideration, while I can think of a few RPG titles that I have and you don't seem to have, the question is whether you want them to begin with. The retail box for Ultima Online, for example. Or The Legacy.

    I really need to have a go at my boxes and sort out what I want to keep and what not.

    Remember, this is AMERICA... I practice my 2nd amendment rights :smug:

    I think most are in great shape so not sure what you would be expecting from some of these games that are 10, 20, 30 years old. Plus, new & sealed classic games can go for 3 to 4 times the price of a used one. Occasionally, I find a great deal or I get surprised by being delivered a brand new copy but overall I'll stick to "slightly used".

    Yeah, you told me that last time too.......still waiting.......

    It's a pre-order package, NOT the actual game, which is next to it and is for the PC. So I stand by my statement ;)

    I do try and only get IBM PC versions of everything but do have a few Apple II (Infocom) and Amiga (Return to Chaos) games that I either can't get for PC or were never made for PC. However, even these I've burned onto a disk the emulator and files and keep them with the games. I've done this with every game that came on a floppy as well.

    Eh, I enjoyed FarCry enough to finish it and at the time my computer was able to play it with all the bells & whistles on. As far as the "other shit" is concerned, that's the completest in me. Even though I really disliked Oblivion I went ahead and got the expansions and guides to "complete" the Elder Scrolls collection.
