Hey, my name is Brian P. Sulpher, and I come here by way of the NES General board at www.GameFAQs.com. The reason I come is that I am in search of information upon the crook named NMorgan, a fellow NES fan for whom I used to have some respect.
I am a fairly dedicated NES player, who has done a fair share of FAQs and IGN Guides (freelance work) in the past 3.75 years. Nice to meet you dudes.
Howdy all I'm Bad Dog I'm 23 years old and i collect mostly NES Games i've been coming here a long time but i just became a member.

Hi, im new here but i've browsed this site for years, I'm real good at Tetris, but i'm even better at Dr. Mario. I've been into games since the intellivison days.
Hi to all
My name's Matt, 20 years old, Linguistics major at Montclair State U., NJ.
A short time ago I discovered the digital press store, fell in love with it, and now, much to my liking, I'm the *second* employee there!
My first day was today, and I loved it so much!! ^_^ Joe and Jenn are absolutely amazing, and I'm looking forward to going to work now ^.^v
I've had a controller in my hand since 1988 when I got my first NES. I am a HUGE Mega Man fan, which began when I beat Mega Man 2 (best game EVER) when I was only 5 years old. I like pretty much all games, except for Grand Theft Auto. My favorite genres though, are RPG and Action.
I may be new here, but I look forward to meeting you guys, chatting with you, and working at DP!
Here's to the start of something great!

Hey Everybody -
I've been a lurker here for a long time, but finally decided to join up. I'm mostly into the old stuff (NES/Genesis/SNES, etc), but have recently been after AES, Japanese Mega Drive and other harder to come by stuff. I've been gaming since my sister got tired of her 2600 back in the day and it ended up in my room. I even went as far as to work at an EB/EB Games for almost 5 years. Let me know if anyone want to trade some old games. I have a ton of feedback on EBAY and CAG, and I'd be interested in anything old game related.

I am an American based writer, nearing thirty, who has been published in scattered locations. Right now, my current manuscript is a young adult fiction book which I hope to revolutionize the publishing world with. Short of those lofty goals, I will be happy paying the bills. I have had three previous user names on here, all of which were eventually closed due to inactivity. It is not important what names I used to post under, since I wasn't anything more than a face in the crowd (despite piling up 3,000 posts combined under those names). I didn't moderate, just preferred to participate a couple times a week. I have enjoyed the DP site for several years and would love to post regularly enough so I don't get locked out, but sometimes I fail to do so.
I own the following systems, which varying amounts of games: Commodore Vic-20, Atari 2600, Nintendo NES-top loader, Sega Genesis-Model 2, Super NES-Model 1, Sega Dreamcast, Nintendo Gameboy Color, Atari Jaguar, Panasonic FZ-1 3DO, Nintendo 64, Sony Playstation 1.
I can't say I have anything that is rare. However, I do have a few items that happen to move some dollars on Ebay, mostly because they are in demand. It has nothing to do with them being 8-10 on a rarity scale.
Excuse any spelling or grammar errors. Regardless of how well-written my introduction is or isn't, it doesn't impact my wallet. Otherwise, I'd put effort into fixing this. Catch my drift?
I'm John, from upstate NY and I found the site while searching for info on various NES clones, I've been gaming since age 3 (1981) with the atari 2600 on through the NES, gameboy, and genesis and then fell out of console gaming (prefferring computer games and pen and paper RPGs) untill about 2000 when I got the pokemon snap station kiosk out of blockbuster (I was employed there at the time), unfortunately my mom made me throw out the kiosk (and eventually the photoprinter), but I kept the tv, n64, 'not for retail' pokemon stadium and other strange hardware (like the pcb with two cart slots) from within. Currently I collect mainly NES and N64 games, but also am interested in Playstation, genesis, snes and gba.
Out in the real world I'm a fine arts student (painting).
My favorite games include:
Dr Mario (any)
The New Tetris (N64)
Super Smash Bros (N64)
Pac Man/Ms. Pac Man (any)
Final fantasy Tactics (PS and GBA)
Marvel Vs Street Fighter (PS)
Life Force (NES)
GTA 3 (PC)
Hello, I am TDD, or The_Double_Deuce.
I am a Homestar fan. Basically, I like any Mario game, or anything Nintendo or Sega related.
Hi everyone. I'm Jose and I live in Progreso, Texas. I'm 32 years old and have been playing video games since the NES launched here in the U.S.
I'm currently a curriculum specialist in an elementary school and enjoy playing nintendo games.
I found out about this forum through Cmtz. He and I are co-workers in the same campus.
I'm not much of a game collector but do plan to start collecting DS and Revolution games.
Thanks for having me everyone.
Ah Hello. Pleased to meat you all, I wish to enjoy my stay and have fun like most everyone. As the name implies there is maybe a fixation or facination with nintendo games but thats hardly unusual. This digital press bussiness rocks as far as I can tell which makes me glad to be here. See you soon 2
Hello all, NiktheGreek here. 19 year old student from the UK, also sighted at various unconnected forums such as Sonic Cult and World of Stuart.
Found the site a while back but I found myself put off for a long time by that slightly intimidating "large forum" feel. Over half of my collection is made up of games for Sega consoles, though there's also a fair chunk of Playstation stuff there and lately, there's even some Nintendo creeping in.
I never actually set out to collect games, it just happened along the way. I started playing games from a very young age (about 3 years old) on my dad's Atari 2600, which I was given when he moved out a few years later. Shortly after I got a Master System II for my birthday (largely owing to my Sonic obsession and the cheap price), and it all started there. A fair amount of my collection has actually been handed down to me for free, by friends or relatives. I only realised that I had so many games three years ago, when I started to build my collection list from an online database and found out I had over 300 games. This has since grown to the present figure of just over 500.
Tell us any or all of the following:
names D.J. Gullette
from Columbus, ohio...
found the forum indirectly from a myspace account.
I started out playing fighting games heavily when i was younger...SF's,MK's, Killer Instint. Fell in love with Golden Eye. Legend Of Zelda... Big Halo fan. Roomate introduced me to world of RPG... almost too scared to emerse myself in that type of gaming... (ill forget to eat!)
I currently own an NES, (three types of Nintendo brand controllers) Zapper, Snes, super scope, mario paint, N64, GameCube, ps1,ps2, Xbox, Genisis. and many games. more in collection... ask if you really must know.
I just work to support the habit.
currently working on developing a v.g. based website:
Hey my name is Chris. I live in Pennsylvania. Ive been collecting games since the middle of 2003 im currently trying to get all the US released Genesis games im about half way there. So yep that is me.
My name's Jess. I'm a 24/f. I'm short, have blue hair/blue eyes.
I live in an apartment in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts (boring little town sandwiched between Lowell and Nashua(NH) -- just 40 min. north of Boston.
My favorite games of all time are Final Fantasy X, the Legend of Zelda series, Mario Bros. series, Ducks Ahoy!, Kingdom Hearts, Bubble Bobble, and lots of others, but the list'd get too long.
The systems I own right now are NES, Genesis, and PS2 (but I own games for other consoles, as well). I don't know if I'd call myself a collector, but perhaps when it comes to gaming, I'm more of a pack rat. I've just never had the heart to throw any of it away. So, I've still got all of my original systems, as well as their original games. I do try to keep everything in perfect working condition, and I've never needed to exchange nor buy any new parts. I treat my older systems like elderly people who need lots of delicate TLC.
When I'm not gaming, I'm watching anime, taking photos of everything I see, reading manga, penpalling with friends all over the world, having drinks with 'local' friends, DIY...'ing', and taking road trips to places I've never been to.
I'm glad I found a place which honors classic gaming just as I do. Thanks for reading!
Well to start off my name is Jack, I live in knoxville Tennessee but have moved all over the south (6 times ) Lets get one thing straight... their is nothing wrong with being a southener, but I am no southener.
I found the forums by accident really. I have always loved video games (since '92) and one day a few years back I went to a website that listed the rarity and estimated price of games. Over that time I got more and more interested in games, specificly older ones (SNES mainly, lol you guys probably consider those new.)
1) Super Mario RPG - First game I actually wanted
4) Shenmue 2
5) The Longest Journey
The list is probably not accurate in the least, other than number 1.
More personally I attend ETSU East Tennessee State University. CS with a consintration in IT. Network management of securities I'm aiming for... something along those lines.
P.S I can't wait to really join this community, my initial interaction with everyone has been amazing!
I'm Murdock (that is actually my name) from Denver, Colorado. I'm 34 years old and a Taurus. I've been playing videogames all my life, and my fist computer was a VIC 20.
I stumbled on this site by accident.
I currently work for a major communications company who recently went through a merger. My hobbies include lots of videogames, Japanese Animation, doing video production and working on my videogame website http://www.paradoxshift.net.
As far as videogames I have 23 game systems and 663 games (give or take a few).
Pleasure to meet all of you!
I'm Chris, from Middletown, NJ. I found out about this site after learning about the store from one of my friends. Great store. Caught up on my SegaCD and SNES stuff and beat some guys on a Neo Geo machine. Haven't done that in about ten years.
My favorite games are almost always going to be 2D fighters and platformers. I love a good RPG as well though.
Older systems I'm actively buying games for include the NES, TG-16, and SNES. I always wanted to get into Intellivision and Commodore 64 stuff again but never quite found the ideal combination of game selection/system/etc. that I wanted. That's going to change now that I know about this awesome store though.
In real life, I'm an ASM at Gamestop, where the fun never stops.
Hi, I'm Skyone;
I love retro games and some modern games.
I hate Xbox, but like Microsoft more than Apple (and that says something!)
I own tons of games, but am not a collector.
I came upon this site from benheck.com .
Hello, I'm Mike D, I'm a newbie.
I live in Massachusetts and recently I've blossomed into a more serious NES collector/player than I've been in the past. I've bought up a couple lots from people who were looking to get rid of their NES games, and as it stands I own about 108 of those light-gray beauties. Other systems I own:
-Sega Game Gear
-Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP
I won't get into it too deeply, but the fire that has fueled my NES obsession is based on a traumatic experience as a child. To make a long story short, when I got Super Nintendo, I diplomatically allowed my cousins to borrow my NES and the games. The system was not at their house, however--it was kept at a neutral location (my grandmother's house) for all of us to share in the fun. Then, inexplicably, they took the system home, proceeded to quickly break and destroy it out of sheer negligence and stupidity, and to top it all off--they threw away all of the games. My young spirit had been broken.
Oh, and I found the Retrogaming Roundtable because I'm destined to discover more about my prized NES cartridge, Satan Den. It was mentioned in this blue balls-oriented thread--one of two mentions of Satan Den that I've ever seen, throughout the entire internet, in my whole life.
Im Josh, been playing games since Commodore 64. Then in 93 at age 8 i got into SNES. The best console ive ever owned out of 11 i have, and still to this day has the greatest games imo. My second gaming love is the NES, which i have 120+ games for, and still grows to this day, thanks to places like Microplay and thrift stores in my state(Ga.). Other consoles of collecting:
-Game Boy Color
You may have seen me on the DCEmulation forums as Striderxg2. Im also here for buying and selling. My gaming interest has gone up and down, but these days its gone back up by playing Dreamcast and SNES.
My name is Aaron Petrosky, I'm 24 and from Pennsylvania.
I been playing games since I was 4 years old, the first system being Intellivsion.
I mainly collect for the Master System. (For some reason I find it funnest to collect for)
I do try to collect for other systems but sometimes for financial reasons I sell some of my games so my collection changes lots of times.
I watch Hockey, and my favorite shows are the X-files and Boy Meets World.
I plan on finishing school soon to become a travel and tourism major. I currently work right now as a CSR agent for a company called Teletech.
I found this site through another site and always read the boards but never posted. I'm glad I'm part of them now.
My name is Matt, I come from the UK and Im joining the forums because Ive finally admitted to myself Im addicted to collecting games, and this is the best forum out there.
I collect anything really, system wise I have ATM:
Mega Drive (genesis)
And with a varied amount of games for each (200+ in total). My largest is undoubtedly my xbox collection, but it isnt huge (about 60). I dont have any specific collecting goals, Im just on here to learn and hopefully share some knowledge, especially as I have noticed there only seems to be a very small section of people from the UK on here. But if any of them are out there, let me know.
Who you are: Jon
Where you live: Vancouver Canada
How you found the forums: Through another website while looking to increase my NES games
What your favorite games are: Of all time goes back to the Intellivision Shark! Shark! I loved playing this as a kid and I would play it literally for hours. I still think its a great concept for a game.
What systems you collect for: Just the NES, its my favorite system of all time. I love how original the games were but I also grew up with it so that makes me a bit bias.
What you do in "real life": Spend time with my wife and make money to buy more NES games
There was no real moment that I decided to start collecting games it was more just I wanted some NES that I remember playing or wanting when I was young so now is as good a time as any to go after them. I'm not out for a complete collection I just want the games that meant something to me growing up or that I find fun, which makes my wallet and wife very happy.
Wow, what a wealth of information. Just the kind of site I was looking for...I can't believe I never knew about it until now! I'll definitely be spending my time enjoying everything here.
Who you are: Jason (aka Johnnycab, aka Mr. Wardner, aka JAMMAPARTS)
