Bought a reference guide to aid in acquisition of older games. Also have guide from same author covering games between 1985-1988 and they’re both quite solid.
Any other recommendations on good reference guides or archives?
Final Fantasy II (IV)
Year obtained: 1991
One of the first games from what’s left of my childhood collection. This was the second title we bought after Christmas and the third game we ever played on the system.
A representation of innocative storytelling for its day, FFIV remains on my list of favorite 16-bit RPGs. I try to get a replay in each year.
On an original PlayStation kick as of late. Must… beat… Spyro…
Inside of repaired 32X from last week (if anyone’s curious what they look like on the inside).
The two white connector strips are apparently a common fault in the system, and sometimes must be disconnected and firmly reconnected for the system to work properly.
I’ve gotten big on rebuilding my old collections. If you follow me on Instagram I update a lot of my different finds and deals with retro gaming. When I was younger, I sold A LOT of my stuff. I was an idiot. Well…still am, either way, this is where I’m at currently. I know it’s very small but I guarantee in a matter of months and years, you’ll see this grow greatly, well if you all still follow me then, that is. I just wanted to post a “before” picture and later on post more as my collection starts to expand. You’ll see a lot more CIB than just that Double Dragon II and the Sega games, that’s for sure.
I never sold my old games, but like many other kids I rented more than I actually owned. It wasn’t until later in life that I was actually able to create a massive personal collection of retro games.
Got my old Sega CD games back. Also found a (hopefully) legit copy of Freeway.
Last time it was Tennis.
