As you all know, I recently re-did my room to be the Ultimate Gaming Place, in my never ending attempt to make both my own brain and explode, and that of my girlfriend. However, I realized that my regular CD case was insufficient for every game that I had; I basically took to changing the games out in that case depending on what Aileen and I were going to play in Northampton, but that meant that I had random, loose stacks of games all over the place; a stack of 360 games by the TV, a stack on my dresser, two different stacks on my desk, and even a random stack of discs in my closet. In short, it was a nightmare to manage. So at a trip to Walmart, I decided to get a humongous CD case - I think it supports about 360 or so discs - and fill it with ALL of my CDs, save my PC games which all go into the smaller CD case that came with my Gundam set that Chris C. sent me (I now have separate cases for games, DVDs and PC software).

After finally organizing everything, and finding out that I have WAY too few empty slots in this monsterous case, I've decided, in my spare time, whenever I get it, to audit everything, and keep a list of all the games I own. I figure as I acquire more, I can simply add to the list (translation: this'll be in my "memories"), and keep an accurate tally. In this entry, I'm only going to list the CD games that I own for the following systems: Playstation 1 + 2, XBox/360, Nintendo Wii, Gamecube, and Dreamcast.

And remember a few things:

1) I might be missing a few
2) This is just CD games; it doesn't count handhelds, doesn't count legacy consoles (NES, Genesis, etc.), and doesn't count downloadable titles for the 360 or Wii.

It's no wonder why Aileen wants to marry me. XD

It gives me warm fuzzies when I find out other people own Vanguard Bandits. Like "yes, this game does exist, and its presence in my collection is not just a hallucination!"

Jul. 20th, 2008 06:58 am (UTC)
I lucked out; I got the game, AND the hardcover strategy book that Working Designs used to do so well, for about $30 total.

Gamers haven't heard of it because gamers hear very little about games that aren't marketed right to their face; they don't know much beyond Halo, GTA, Mario, etc. A game like Vanguard Bandits is too hard for most of today's gamers, for one; it takes a lot of work just to get a BAD ending, much less one that doesn't suck. It's too Japanese for some, and not bloody enough for others.

We're a dying race, Sam. :(
Jul. 20th, 2008 02:25 pm (UTC)
I've heard of Vanguard Bandits, if only because of the slot for the Demo CD in the case for Lunar 2's OST (>_>). I just don't own it.
Jul. 21st, 2008 02:49 am (UTC)
Think about emulating it (since I can't recommend someone pay for it at today's prices). It's a great strategy game, and considering you like Fire Emblem, I think you'd like it a lot.
Jul. 20th, 2008 07:02 pm (UTC)

You use about the same methodology for your catalogue as I do, actually. Here's the differences:

– I count every console separately: PS1, then PS2; X-Box, then 360; etc.

– I do count handhelds and 'legacy' consoles, though I don't count downloadables or ROMs.

– For every console after the introduction of the DVD format, I only count games in their original cases; I couldn't do that for PS1, since there were so many games I could only get as orphan discs.
Jul. 21st, 2008 12:26 am (UTC)
I count them together for the sake of my case; I have all of my Suikoden games together, all of my Ace Combat games, etc.

I'll be doing handhelds and legacies in other posts. I'm not done yet.

I am not going to be counting ROMs, though I will eventually be counting PC games I've legitimately purchased (such as Football Manager). I also count legitimate CDs; for instance, I have Aileen's copy of Einhander, but it's a pirate copy, so it does not count.
Jul. 20th, 2008 07:14 pm (UTC)
I hate to be the Grammar Nazi (because there's far more awesome kinds of Nazi to be--like a Mecha Nazi bombing 2XX6 Europe), but those aren't all CD games. They're disc games. :|
Jul. 21st, 2008 12:46 am (UTC)
Jul. 21st, 2008 03:35 am (UTC)
I do--and it's all over the floor now! >:(
Jul. 20th, 2008 08:31 pm (UTC)
So you have Skies? What's your opinion of it, you have played some of it?
Jul. 21st, 2008 12:49 am (UTC)
I didn't get too far in it yet; haven't had my Wii hooked up. It looks great, though I'm not sure how much I like that whole flying aspect; it seems like a needlessly obtuse way to get around the map.
Jul. 21st, 2008 01:11 am (UTC)
It gets to be a more interesting mechanic once you starting getting into epic battles in the air. And, it has other reasons for being there as well. I think it'll grow on you.

(Though, I personally prefer the original DC version over the GCN remake...)
Jul. 21st, 2008 02:48 am (UTC)
I think I would too; there's just something about the Dreamcast that is endearing.

That said, I would not prefer the VMU - a medium I've had issues with over the years - over the Gamecube memory card, which has been flawless to this point, and has much more storage than a 200 block VMU. My World Series games take up a VMU EACH.
Jul. 21st, 2008 03:00 am (UTC)
Yeah, the VMU is a downside. Especially when the battery up and dies. (Damn that incessant beep. ;_;) Despite that though, my lone VMU(from Christmas '99 when I got my DC) has held up remarkably well. Unlike some third party memory card that someone bought me for a birthday. It up and died randomly one day and had to be reformatted. Luckily, I kept backups of most of my stuff on the VMU. XD

That said though, while Legends has the additional content in terms of Wanted battles and the stupid Moonfish quest(though, you get some decent equipment and items from it), the compression(resulting in worse audio and texturing) and changes make it an iffy trade off(IMHO). I guess, in the end, the changes balance out(as, with the good, comes the bad). They're both good in their own right. (It just helps if you don't beat the DC version several times and then try to play the GCN version. >_>)
