All About PersonNinja
What is there to say? I play everything, or at least try to. From big name exclusives on the current gen consoles to indie games on the PC to dusty NES cartridges. I fancy myself a collector of video games(especially retro). I can't quite explain it but retro video games just intrigue me. The games themselves tell so much about the eras they were released in and the fact that I have a 20 year old Genesis hooked up to my tv that works just as well as it did 20 years ago is just amazing to me.
A video of me unboxing my new Dreamcast.
I should be doing another update blog soon.
In my previous end of the year blog I talked about changing as a gamer. Well I haven't really changed since the beginning of the year (other then gaining a new found respect for the dreamcast) my collection has changed. I've gotten about 13 more games since the beginning of the year and that set me over the bar. I ran out of space! Since the beginning of the year I've gotten an N64. Between controllers for that and accessories, I ran out of drawer space AND shelf space. So with some hardcore reorganizing and new shelves I've been able to make excess room. I took all my GB classic and advanced boxes and put them in a box along with other things I want to keep but don't really use. With the excess of space I've finally been able to give my shelf items (MW2 NVG, MC helmet, Halo figures) the display space they deserve.
Just this week I ordered a new in box Dreamcast along with a VMU, and Jet Grind Radio. I don't quite know where I'm gonna put it because I have excess /game/ storage space but my systems are so close together that I can't open my PS2 door without it hitting my GC. I'll have to do some hardcore reorganizing again but I'll cross that road when I get to it (which should be within the next week). Someone also put the thought in my mind to get an Atari 2600 but their original estimation of its value was way above actual value. On top of that the 2600 is close to the bottom of the list of systems I want to get probably even below a TG-16.
As the new year approaches so does the end of the decade and I think back on how I've changed as a gamer and I can think of that without thinking of how I've changed as a person. As a gamer I've become more involved. Within the last 3 years I've been playing, buying, and collecting more video games. I have every system from this decade and as this new decade arrives I think on if I'll be able to keep this trend. How will my gaming prefrences change in the next decade? Will I switch my favorite game genre from FPS to third person adventure? And how will I change as a person? Will I start wearing clothes that aren't black? Will I become more active? I don't know what will happen in this new decade and all I can do is look to the future and hope for the best. So with that I hope you all have a happy new year and a great start to the decade.
