You guys put me to shame. I was proud I had a well-loved copy of Super Mario Bros. and Zelda II. Super Nintendo, oh how I loved thee.

Still have the old Playstation Magazine (PS1 that is) Demo disc I use as a cup coaster by the computer.

And cleaning out the bookshelf the other day...found " Silent Scope " for PS2!

Still got my atari 800xl in the parents shed, along with a famicom from around the early 90's, along with 100's of games for it.

Unfortunately sold my mega drive, game gear, game boys, n64.

Funny I never noticed this thread before...

I do collect the old video games and consoles. Heck, I even write a (infrequently updated) blog chronicling it here on the TOG site. The link is in my sig.

If anyone has any old consoles or games they want to get rid of, let me know.

I think I have an intellivision, NES and genesis in my attic somewhere. What sort of adapters are needed to attach say an intellivision to a newer TV?

Funny you ask that. A buddy just gave me his intellivision, but it didn't have the necessary hookups.

You should be able to use the RF adapter bundled with an NES or Sega with the Intellivision.

Most modern televisions still come with a coaxial input.

Nice to see this thread is still active after all these years

My gameroom no longer exists on the earlier pages of this thread...sad to say...but that is what divorce does

At least she didn't want the old computers lol

And at least I got the plasma to hook them up to

My retro collection has had to be trimmed down a huge amount due to lacking space, the few systems I kept are a Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Atari 800XL with SDNuxx drive (purely for Dropzone), my beloved Sega Dreamcast with dual arcade sticks (for Soulcalibur), a Sega Gamecube with dual setup, used for 4 player Pacman Vs and my well worn Playstation 2.

Got the Super Nintendo hooked up to the 55" LED LCD TV in the living room right now. I'll say one thing about it: I'm sure it looks much better on a big CRT vs a big LCD TV.

Been playing "The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past", "Gradius III", "Axelay" & "Super Metroid".
