I've got two C64's with two disk drives and one tape drive stashed in a cupboard with a pile of games, I've also got and old PSX lying around somewher and I might even have an Atari 2600 as well. I did have a second generation Mega Drive but that's gone to live with my brother.

Unfortunately none of them get out much although I have been toying with idea of playing a bit of Buck Rogers RPG on the C64 recently.

(also thinking of tracking down an old Amiga 500 as well)

Long live the retro hardware!

Although I play almost everyting via emulators now days I still have a decent collection, most of which all have original boxes.

Arati 2600
Amiga 500
Mega drive
Original game boy.
As well as the current crop of consoles.

I'm trying to convince the wife to set up the spare bedroom as a little retro games area, along with my mame cabinet.

And I'm always looking on ebay for those nintendo game and watch games.

I've got a serious addiction to video game consoles and games... I have an Atari 2600 (and 30+carts), 2 NESes (30+carts), 2 SNESes (20+carts), 2 N64 (30+carts), 3 Sega Genesis 1 w/32x (50+carts), 3 PSXes (50+ discs), Gamecube (20+ discs), Xbox (20+discs), Dreamcast (20+games), 2 Sega Gamegear (20+ carts), Gameboy, 2 Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advanced (30+ GB carts), Nintendo DS (new so only 2 carts so far), Xbox 360 (10+ discs), Wii (10+ discs), and I feel like I've forgotten something...

I used to have a Sega CD - it was my sort of 3rd system I got, but pawned it for my first SNES - still have 2 Sega CD games though.

Should I mention of all of those I maybe play Wii twice a month...... that might change (see new thread which brought me here)
Proudmoore - HORDE (back in action!)
100's - Shelph (belf fiery mage), Shelmic (undead shady priest), Shelita (tauren shammy), Shel (belf afflock), Shelraiser (death knight), Drushel (tauren kitty druid)
Lowbies - Monshel (panda monk), Treshel (troll warrior), Sheladin (pretty pally),

On that same note...

Did I forget to mention that I still have the very first 3.5" demo disc from PC Gamer's Premiere issue? The Vol. 1 No. 1 disc has the demo for Theme Park. Don't have the magazine itself, though.

Just recently I found my SEGA Genesis inside a box that is being kept in our garage and it's still working.

Yeah I had the same experience with my dreamcast. Was in a smelly old box in the garage with other junk for about 5 years...pulled it out and it worked perfectly, opened it up and it was clean as a whistle.
I can't really imagine being able to do that with the 360 or ps3.
