I used to. Got sick of storing them so I sold anything worth decent money and gifted the rest to younger family.

Did for a while, sold mostly everything off. Still have 2 original Atari systems, sealed in the boxes. They are marked "For Promotional Use Only". Found them at a Ford dealer I worked at for a while, they were renovating and I found them in the storage area. They were gonna toss them.

I've gone the rom route for classics. I figure one day I'll set up a HTPC and have them all accessible for parties or throwback gaming nights.

The good thing about the Dreamcast is you can download the games from all over the net and burn them to CD and they play without any mods.
You can also put an emulator and thousands of roms on a single cd and load it in the Dreamcast.
There was a couple games developed that were never released but were leaked and they are available now. Propeller Arena is one, its a air combat game using WW2 style aircraft. The graphics are amazing and the replay value is very high. Although never released the game is complete.

building one now, didnt even think of using the emulators and roms. Something else to add to the mix...lol

I was looking to use it more for movies. DVD collection has gotten unruly and figured I can store away the physical copies.

With the new DVD ripping software and encoders its easy these days to rip DVDs, compress them, and save them to your hard drive.
Now, if I can only find an easy way to do Blu-Rays!!!

Don't really collect. I do have a Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and all 3 Playstations. That's about it.

I own all playstations, my family... well excluding my mom, have always been sony fans. I do occasionally have the urge to play some ps1 games, especially twisted metal 1&2 and all the need for speeds, I love the commentaries on the cars. I don't really collect, but I certainly wish I took good care of all my games as a kid, especially old computer games such as Quake, Blood, and Metal Gear. Love video games because I've always feel connected to my dad that way. For sure want to keep all the playstations and games so I can show my future kids.

I still have my 2600, it's the smaller final version without wood grain, with one stock joystick and one Discwasher pistol grip joystick, paddle controllers, the touch pad, and about 20 games. Several years ago, my then-12 year old nephew got his Xbox for Christmas, and wanted to play ol' Uncle John in some Madden football. He handed me a controller that looked like it had been ripped out of the space shuttle, and gave me a 30 second tutorial on how to run, pass, blitz, juke, and 40 other moves. I watched in amazement as the little sh*t clobbered me (hardly surprising). I promised revenge. I got it the next time I went over to my sister's house with the Atari in tow, along with Real Sports football (5 on 5, not the 70's football with block shaped players). Gave him the joystick with one button, and said "pass left is this, pass right is this, run left is this, run right is this, push the button to pass. Let's go!". 10 minutes later and on the bad end of a 63-0 score, my nephew wanted to get the Xbox. Denied. LOL Old Skool ruled the day, and he hasn't forgotten that life lesson. Peace, John
