Does anyone here have the urge to sell part or all of your collection even when you are STILL collecting?
I'm getting older... 36. I have about several thousand games from the 2600 all the way to the Dreamcast. My college days of booze, grass, and video games are far behind me, my partner isn't a gamer, and this stuff takes up a lot of room. I don't get to play that much anymore.
I've been thinking about purging... maybe getting rid of all my Genesis and Master System games. They take up a lot of room! Speaking of room... 200+ domestic Saturn games and 100+ Sega CD games and 200+ complete N64 games take up a lot of space, too. I live in a tiny loft and it's bursting at the seams.
And I'm STILL buying games... mostly handheld stuff like the Gizmondo and N-Gage but that takes of precious room, too. The systems I mostly PLAY are the the DC, N-Gage, and my PC (I just got into GTA3... DAMN I'm behind the times.) I still shop eBay regularly and have switched my obsession to Retro Gamer magazine and other similar publications (I also have hundreds and hundreds of game magazines in storage... thanks, Mom and Dad!)
I flip-flop between keeping it all, selling part of it, or selling the whole damn thing and be done with it. It's consumed a big part of my life (and my salary) for so long now it's hard to think about moving on but I'd like to be in that old lifestle again... the kind where I could pack most of my belongings in my Jeep and just move if I had to (not that I have any plans of doing so, but with the world the way it is...)
Does anyone else have feelings like these? How do you deal?
