Hello from an old timer
« on: February 22, 2014, 07:48:23 AM »
Hello Everyone!

       I figured I would stop in and say hello being a new member. I've been playing/collecting video games for a little over 30 years. My interests range from atari 2600 to ps1 and everything in between. I do like to try and get complete collections but I do play my games. After all, isn't that what they were made for? As of right now I'm currently working on completing my Atari Jaguar collection.

       Well that's all for now. I'm really looking forward to meeting new people here on the forums and learning more about my favorite pastime, Video Games! And far as I can tell, there is no end in sight.

Thanks everyone for the friendly welcome, it's much appreciated! I have to say, in all the years I'm into gaming I only just started checking out websites in the last 2 years. And this one is by far the friendliest and most helpful. It is definitely a nice change from what I've seen. As far as where I learned about this site I wish I could remember. I was on some site and clicked on the recommended sites tab and here I am. I definitely look forward to joining in on some of your conversations but sadly if it turns technical I'm out. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm what you call a technical idiot. I don't know how to make em but I sure can play em :113:

We mainly talk about our love for games, and we all love games right or we wouldn't be here!

Don't be afraid to post anything  :6:

I will definitely be posting and participating. It's just once it gets technical I get a headache :40:

I sure will check out everyone's collections and get some pics up of mine and soon as I get a break from the 12-16hr shifts at work.

Hi Jagman67

Welcome and I look forward to your posts especially any to do with the Atari Jaguar :113:

I have also been collecting for a long time though not in any serious fashion and I can relate to your comment about technical stuff. The best thing here is not only do people genuinely contribute but a lot of people have extensive knowledge of just about every system I have heard of and are very helpful.
For the record, Alien verses Predator on the Atari Jaguar holds a Guinness World Record!

To remove any awkwardness, I have mesothelioma. I don’t seek sympathy, just acceptance. Thanks

I suggest taking a look at the interviews section too Jagman, especially the Darryl Still interviews.
