Hey Everyone,

My name is Kenny and I have been collecting for 7 years now.
I started collecting by finding a NES game I used to play at my cousins home (Kung Fu) . I really wanted to play it again so I went and bought myself a NES on a flea market.

And then it started...
First I bought the games I used to play (Super Mario Bros 3, Captain Skyhawk, Chip and dale..).
But soon enough I started buying other games I didn't know. And at first I played the games I bought.

But after a while I was just buying them to get them all (like pokemon :mrgreen: ).
So after 4 years I focussed on games I liked and some special things like proto's, sealed games etc....and I sold all the rest.

That's all folks !

Hey guys,

I have always bought and sold retro games well since I was about 20 now 30 and still loving gaming with new and old games to the point where I have now decided to open up my very own game store....

I want people to appreciate gaming's past and I am in the process of setting up a room where all my consoles will be playable such as:

NES, SNES, N64,GAMECUBE,WII, MEGA DRIVE, MASTER SYSTEM,SATURN, XBOX, XBOX 360, PS1, PS2, PS3.

All consoles are going to be on display and plugged in and even tuned in!! ready to go if anybody wants to play on them!

I will of course be adding to my collection and have a few things in mind but basically just want a fun enviornment for gamers to meet and play and then with any luck sell a few games and consoles to keep me open haha :)

My shop is located in Prudhoe, Northumberland and is currently a work in development hopefully be open in a week or 2 at the most. so anybody from the North East who wants to come and want full directions please let me know

Cheers All

Alan

Hello all - new member here from the US (Greensboro North Carolina to be exact).

I'm old enough to have owned a ColecoVision when it was initialy released :lol: I've started collecting again after having found my old modded PS1 and a couple of my favorite RPGs. I own an Xbox 360, but aside from Phantasy Star II it has not gotten a lot of love lately.

Now I own several systems, including an N64, Genesis, Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox (with XBMC) and my current jewel - a Saturn.

Would love to meet other retro collectors in the area.

Hi guys how are we?

I'm Griffo aka Greg. Gaming has been a large part of my life! However the collecting has only begun over the past couple of years.

It began when I was itching to play on my old Atari 2600 I had when I was younger, last I remembered my mom had given it to my aunty years and years ago so I managed to find that out from her and reclaim it haha! What mainly followed then was sourcing consoles I had previously owned as a child such as a Megadrive etc.

Since then it's blown into just finding whatever I'm in the mood for at the time lol which has lead to a collection spanning from the awesome little Atari 2600 jnr to my xbox360

Looking forward to having a good read around on here and learn what everybody else is upto in the retro gaming world :)

Hello :D

I'm Garry and have been collecting games on and off for a few years. Main areas of interest are N64, Gamecube and Megadrive although I never seem to be able to build up much of a collection before having to sell it for some unexpected thing or other!

I'm quite active on ebay selling under "gumblegames" feel free to have a look at any time :)

Hope to chat with you all at some point!

Hello everyone,

im Spawny aka Paul, from the north east uk. Just joined as im about to start my collecting journey. Im going for PS2 as i missed out on gaming for a long period (end of the 90's till a few years ago). So bought a second hand PS2 with controller & mem card, then went to get a few games but theres not a lot where i live :roll: so i guess ebay will be my hunting ground.

Been playing games most of my life (well until i left school) started on the nes ended on the PS1.

random fact about me - i still cant believe i had a boxed complete (mint) secret of mana which i threw in the bin :shock: the guy i sold my snes to didnt want it so in the bin it went (back in 1995 i believe, i had to make room for my PS1) i had no idea it would be worth anything now :lol:

Hello all!! Newbie alert!

Postby TheGamesShed » Wed May 02, 2012 9:43 am

Just thought I would introduce in a nice and friendly way

The Games Shed is made up of two London lads who have always had a love for gaming. We recently started The Games Shed one evening after pulling out a few of our retro consoles and giving the controllers a good bashing! This made us feel all warm and fuzzy inside and gave us a good excuse to get ourselves online. So here we are!!

http://www.thegamesshed.co.uk - Currently in a blog state but we are creating a lovely looking website.
http://www.youtube.com/thegamesshed - Where it all started! Over 120 videos made so far including Multi player battles, commentaries, walkthroughs and a sonic speed run! :)
http://www.twitter.com/gamesshed - Come follow us on twitter. This is where we like to get a lot of our ramblings out!
http://www.facebook.com/TheGamesShed - Getting there with facebook and will run competitions on here as well as twitter

We have been told this is a great forum by http://www.twitter.com/retrogamer1982 and we have found it to be great so far!!

Thanks everyone! :D

Hello everyone!

I just started my collection couple of months ago and also discovered your website!
I'm really searching new channels and people to develop my collection, seek help or just for a chat about it since seems like there's not much of a retro gaming culture in the city.

I'm Mirko, 27, from London UK.

Hi, everyone. :)

Thought I'd introduce myself. I've been playing PC Games since the early 90s and been collecting them as well as of late. Stupid as I was, I sold almost my entire collection in the early 00s, which I have regretted bitterly ever since. Nice to see a site such as this, and I hope I will have time to spend some time here. :)

Hello Retro Collectors
I'm 26 from Australia, I enjoy collecting and playing retro games. I found you guys on the hunt for a retro oriented forum ( the gaming forums i've found in the past focus more on current gen and forum posts reflect that. It was very refreshing to find this forum focusing on retro as well as the collecting aspect of the hobby.

I look forward to chatting with you all
