Exactly how many games does YOUR collection need to be completed?

I'm still in the high 700's

So, do you mean like the whole collection or a set of stuff?  I don't think you can ever really complete your video game collection? :) Right...

personally my collection wil only consist of games i like and will find replay value in.  ive run into many rare finds, and had to pass simply because i cant spend money on something i get no use or satisfaction of playing.  i restarted my n64 and nes collection. working on sega and ps1. adding to my wii, ps3, ds collection.  ill get ps2 going in a few years..lol

Lol, right, I only mean what games and systems you need to complete what you really want. My list is covering systems and games from the U.S. and Japan

My ps2 collection is the largest so far, mostly because I love rpg's and want every one that came out for the ps2

I need like 14 games to complete my turbo grafx collection.  Magical chase is on the top of that amazing list, and some crappy sports games, which should not be that difficult to find!

Oh yeah, you can find sports games by the bushel. there is a store in Orland Park named Disc Replay that has a lot of the older sports games.

Disc Replay is tight. They price pretty reasonably too. Great selection of retro: SNES, NES, n64, PS1 and Genesis. I have found that the one in Bloomingdale is the best, although the one in Hoffman is not far off. It's a shame these stores don't carry much Dreamcast, Saturn.

 

Hey Goomba, have you checked out Half-Price Books in Bloomingdale?? It is a couple of stores away from Disc Replay next to Office Max and they get retro games there often and at ridiculously low prices. I was able to get a Four Score and LOLO for the NES for a buck a piece a month back. The last time I went they even had a Master System for sale.

 

Play N Trade is cool too. I like how you can play games before you buy them, even the old stuff. I live half a mile from the one in Elmhurst and peops that work there are cool.

Ok, I need to visit every place each one of you mentioned!! I live out of state and all we have is the abomination for a game store. There is one place in Lexington that sells classic games called 3D Games, it's where I got my NGage.

I like the dedicated stores that sell only games.. But, it is nice to mosey into the stores that have no idea of how to price stuff... That is how I got mario kart GBA for 3.99, and then a week or two later it was for sale for 33.99... 


Wasn't the ngage a phone or something like that?

A: I believe the closest Disc Replay location to you is at Skokie. Sure it's no PPG or VG ETC, but at least it's not Gameflop. Gosh I hate that store. This behemoth gobbled up two of my favorite stores: Funcoland and Babbages.

 

The NGage, surely you must remember that. It was nicknamed the "taco" phone.

I loved babbages!! I started writing about my love for it on my blog, but then saved it, so I could spend more time on it...

i remember funcoland, babbages, and software etc.. all now owned by gamestop.  the ngage is the tmobile game phone thing.. actually the disc replay in hoffman estates has a few games (splinter cell is one of them)..


as for disc replay, i find the hoffman location to have the best treasures.. bloomingdale has alot too but i never seem to find anything real special amongst them.. i went to the touhy location and it sucked balls as far as gaming, although they did have a sega master system for 40..
