I didn't know where else to put this so I decided to make a thread. If it disappears and fades away then that's alright by me, I just wanted the chance to share since I don't really have anybody else to talk to about it... at least no one will really GET it.
Anyway... I used to have so much cool stuff you guys! I just recently turned 40 but have been into gaming my whole life, going back to Atari and Coleco. NES, TurboGrafx 16 and CD/Super CD stuff later, Genesis, SNES, Saturn, 3DO, Dreamcast, Playstation, N64, PS2, PS3, PS4, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, Switch, Xbox, 360, XBone, GBA, DS in many flavors, 3DS too, Vita, etc etc.
I've been around and am still going.
I used to take pride in having all the boxes etc and all the goodies that went along with them. Then eventually I got married and later had some kids. Along the way, little by little I started getting rid of stuff. Had to free up some space, stuff like that.
One painful step along the way was putting discs into binders and getting rid of everything else. Oh, the pile of STUFF I made on the floor in the process. Hurt my soul a bit, but I adjusted and moved on. This isn't a story of regret either, at least not to the extent that it may seem. I'd do it all again to be where I am right now. I mostly just wanted to SHARE among some who may care.
I mean, I had stuff like Panzer Dragoon Saga, Radiant Silvergun, Castlevania Rondo of Blood. You know, THAT kind of stuff. (Those types of things didn't get the binder treatment. I'm not a monster!) The kind of stuff that every time I hear them mentioned on the gaming podcasts I listen to now, it stings a little, and I just wanted to talk about it.
And I have now, so thanks! Ha ha ha!
So feel free to share any stories any of you oput there may have, or feel free to let the thread fade away. Either way, I feel better already!
