What drives people to "collect" video game shit? What are these people like? Do you know any? Are they good at any game?
Seems insane to me. Like they must have some screws loose.
All collectors have screws loose.
>What drives people to "collect" video game shit?
Because they think it looks nice.
t. fag that owns every Smash Bros. amiibo in their original boxes
Some people like collecting shit, I own some collector editions of games I like .
Mainly retardation and homosexuality
stopped collecting stuff myself after a while
now i am about finishing as many games as i can, in reasonable amount of time, and moving on
what are the hardest games you've "finished" ?
Wow, God forbid somebody enjoys video games
Depends. Some archive, some have mental issues.
If you enjoy video games you've got mental issues. Look at this board, everyone is perfectly fine here.
video games are meant to be played, not hoarded, or shown off to guests as house decorations.
you can emulate or download most any game anyway. No excuse for being a "collector"
Right, buying a game means you can't play it. Got it.
Consider how large people's steam libraries get. People are not playing these games.
It's mostly because of autism. I too collect some useless stuff not vidya or anime related at all, but still Japanese shit even though I know I have no real use for them. What bugs me the most are when the vidya collector is a soybeard with a wife and kid, you'd have thought that having a family and a job would mean no useless shit like these. A lot of them are also surprise surprise, filthy secondaries who think they know everything about Dork Souls because they watched a 10-hour video series of autistic theoryfags talking about muh deepest lore.
I wonder what these fags will think when all their discs fail.
My vidya collection is literally a HDD with .iso and GOG installers.
Fuck physical collection.
It falls under two categories: dick measuring and autism. The first is where rich faggots buy fancy shit to impress people. Some buy cars, others plastic. The second one is harder to explain, hence I just call it autism. Some just have certain hoarding issues and want the precious in their possession so they can look at it and admire it. The two are fairly distinct in their reasons for why they have so much trash waiting to rot. I think most people have, so some degree, these unhealthy obsession with objects. I personally collect figurines like the ones you see in 40k meet ups, except for straight people. I dunno why I do it, but it's harmless and I like it.
collectashits are nu-males
>old game buyers
>le retro game hipster
>spending money on free things
They probably just want attention because they like the cover art of packages and so they can display them on their shelf of sick grabs
Ask them what high score, time attack or achievement they've gotten in a hard game and they'll look at you dumbfounded
Because I want to and I can. A benefit of retiring young. Hard work pays off, something poor fags can never understand.
>frivolous commercial spending is good
found the jew
rat-minded people with existential emptiness that fill their void with vapid materialistic actions
but anon, this is an officially jewish place, Mark is the owner.
One thing is enjoying games. Another thing is being a good goy and spending on frivolous commercial goods without moderation
Look at the pic in OP (>>15949768), do you really believe that fag has played even half of that? There are people who seriously have games still shrink-wrapped that they never opened. And it's not like they have five different versions of the game already and some are just for the curiosity, I mean they own a copy of a game they never played at all.
Work on your reading comprehension.
i have the guy with the axe. 5th from the left. i bought it at a place in NY called midevil times when i was a kid and taken there on a school trip. are these from something else? i thought it was just a cool souvenir… when i was 12.,
>would you like to purchase a video game? full price, no refunds.
>What drives people to "collect" video game shit?
We evolved as hunter gathering species.
Its ingrained within us to want to collect things that we like and make us happy.
Hundreds of thousands of years ago that would be plants, grains and berries. Now its luminous plastic crap from China.
It still triggers the same response inside us all.
This. Collecting as a "hobby" is done by crazies, but collecting merchandise is the absolute lowest dimwit's way of finding purpose to their life. It's below even the passive consumption of mass entertainment like movies or video games.
>it's okay to be a consumerist whore because evolution or something
Everything has an evolutionary purpose. Suicide too. I think suicide is probably the next step in human evolution.
It really depends how far you go into "collecting" and how many you actually play them. I admit being a bit guilty of this shit, as I bought a lot of used vidya, within my interests, which I didnt play before a couple of months later.
People who just buy crap vidya, shitty localizations or even imports they cannot even play, just for the sake of collecting (like in pic related) need to fuck off.
Im said its a natural instinct from our past environment. Not that its OK.
Theres lots of things that we evolved to do back in the day that we obviously shouldnt do now. Like eating everything in sight.
>eating food is immoral because all consumption is immoral
If someone actually likes video games they wouldn't spend money on video game related items.
>Collect video game shit.
>Shows a picture of a guy with just video games.
Video game shit is crap like shitty figures or special editions. That guy just has video games like the rest of us he just has more because he is not fucking poor like the rest of us.
>Look at this board, everyone is perfectly fine here.
Yeah, I'm perfectly fine anon just as the rest of this board is. Just look at me and my fiancee here.
I currently collect older magic cards in large part due to (((nostalgia))), but also:
>enables me to meet other collectors who enjoy the game when it was at its best during the recession.
>the artwork is interesting and has introduced me to some of my favorite artists like Paul Bonner
> I get to make my decks shiny with strange Russian cards.
I imagine these people do it for similar reasons, but I think everyone needs a hobby and it’s an excuse to casually flex on normalfags.
>If someone actually likes video games they wouldn't spend money on video game related items.
Why wouldn't they spend money on video game related shit if they enjoy video games?
It seems to be there is an inverse correlation between being rich and having a room full of video game junk.
depends on how nice the video game room is… i dont know any poor people that own arcade cabinets
I know the economy is fucked nowadays and you can't buy a house for a reasonable price and support a family on a single income anymore like in the old days but I bet all the millennials who somehow manage to have excessive disposable income and collect crap they don't even like for completion's sake don't help at all.
Spending money isn't the same as collecting, genius.
If someone likes video games they play video games, not collect them. 99% of games are free anyway
some people that like things, also collect things that have to do with the thing they like.
What's your most recent sick grab?
The same thing that drives people to collect beanie babies, or little glass birds, or cuckoo clocks.
Haha yeah collecting is so weird… hah-ha
The shitty figures will last longer than those dics.
>only 2 guns.
anon, i have miku, bulma, neptunia, and k-on figures… a massive game collection. but atleast i own enough guns an ammo to protect my waifu.
These are PHYSICAL things that you can play with.
There's 3 there, and I have more.
didnt see the little black gun under the wooden one… what kind of rifles are those?
do you have any fun rounds for the underbarrel launcher? my yugo sks has a grenade launcher setting, and i've been on a waiting list for the golfball shooter
And physical vidya isn't? Video game merch isn't? What in the world do you think OP is talking about?
would you collect her feet?
>would you collect her feet?
Not only are you a foot fetishist but you want to cut her fucking feet off to keep them for yourself? Keep them frozen at least.
No the grenades are too expensive to play with, I got all 3 of those guns as in super cheap from private sales, bubba'd sks, bubba'd Arisaka (real), and that ar15 with launcher.
>Japanese Model also collects old games
What happened to her? did she die in 2012? Thats when she stops posting shit
>If someone likes video games they play video games, not collect them.
Yet people clearly do collect them and get merchandise related to them.
Heh, as if you know anything about collecting, chump. I have more hidden gems then you can possibly imagine.
heres the prize of my collection.
>the grenades are too expensive.
plus you need i believe an FFL7 or 11 to get them. but i believe they do make "dummy" rounds that are easy to obtain. they dont explode or shoot super far… just for fun.
does your arisaka have an intact mum? do you have any ammo for it?
i'll show you my SKS's i bubba'd one myself (kept the original parts, just bubba'd it for fun)
Emperor 10,000 years
Isn't it a honeypot now?
picture didnt post. did you know nerf has a real picatinny rail?
beautiful mum. wow. not even a scratch. that cant be a battlefield capture… hows the ammo aquisition for it?
Rounds are $1.55 each, and that's the cheapest you can find.
Also yes it's a take home rifle no idea how exactly the US soldier got it but that's the story
I want to do an original Xbox collection since it's what I grew up with, it's a great console, and the games are extremely cheap compared to other consoles. In other words, fuck you I do what I want.
If you don't collect old video games you will run out of games to play for your old console and you'll have to go cancerous with shitty emulation that will never be the same as the games running on the original hardware or play new games which are for faggot millennials. I have a moderate dragon hoard of video games for my favorite consoles. Then it's also a fun hobby for some people to hunt all the stuff down that they couldn't get when they were kids, sometimes to hunt for them are more fun than actually having them.
I see don't see why this triggers third-world poorfags so much.
i believe it. i went out of my way to start purchasing only guns that i can obtain plentiful amounts of ammo for.
maybe he snagged an unused one from an arsenal they captured. pretty rare. most are beaten to shit.
This one is beaten to shit as well, he threw the original stock away and made his own bubba'd stock.
>emulation is for faggots
>beaten to shit
that reciever looks flawless.
are you sure it was the previous owner are not a mid-war change? look at my m1. look at the hand guard. they used a shitty birch hand guard to replace the original walnut.
The problem is products that pander to the collectors market are always cancerous; any new vidya with a collector's edition is a scam with some shitty plastic figurine.
some are ok. a collectors edition should be at most 10-15 more. the yakuza one came with some drinking glasses and stone cubes for whiskey. as well as some coasters as well as a business card holder. it was only like $10 more.
Compare these two images, original stock is rip or he threw away the top piece and shaved down the barrel length of the stock.

are you positive its a standard type 99? there are a shitload of variants. though i've never seen one with an open top except the paratrooper one, which that definitely isnt.
look at this pic. do you see a spot for the bracket to hook in? maybe he lost the wood top.
The only good thing to come out of these collectors is that if there is a rare or unreleased game that hasn't been dumped they may dump it and release it on the internet but that rarely happens. Most of them just hoard the games and say "fuck you I have a game you will never get to play".
Just get a flash cart or mod your console if you care about accuracy.
The barrel is smooth all the way down, nowhere for anything to latch on.

>Just get a flash cart or mod your console if you care about accuracy.
it wouldnt be the barrel, since that normally would be wrapped in wood. it would be on the lower part of the stock, or on the lower part of the receiver under the wood.
I used to collect games. I bought cheap PC Games that looked fun, if I saw them for 1/10th the original price in a bargain bin.
I didn't keep them on display, I had them in a cupboard. For some years I was attached to keeping them as is, then when I moved to a smaller place, I threw away 95% of the cardboard boxes and realised that they were just cardboard boxes and plastic cases that I had been keeping. Put the cds in a couple of 120-240 cd wallets and never touched them again. They take up far less space now and I don't feel particularly attached to them.
Part of it was the fear that they were worth some money, so i kept the boxes, manuals etc. Tried to sell a handful in the end, some didn't sell, some went for £1.
You'll feel a lot better if you treat the stuff as you would food wrappers, dispose of them and use the game while you enjoy it.
The other part is the imagined potential fun that could be had with each one, when you really don't have enough time to play them all.
all that work painting it, and from the thumbnail I thought it was someone pissing in a dirty snow pile.
Men like to collect things (not to say women don't too).
<that's (((materialism))) you consumerist faggot
<you're not even going to use that shit!
It's about history, whether it's cars, guns, vinyl records, stamps, or vidya. Although I will say people who surround themselves in children's games memorabilia are total doofuses.
Jewish elf girl is cute
I feel like if you ever needed to define autisticute, this webm would be what you'd need.
I feel like it's grown more popular since lots of faggots use these 'collections' as the backdrop to their youtube videos and people mimic the habits of 'otaku' depictions in anime and manga. Marketing all the way down.
I don't really collect insomuch as I just don't ever get rid of shit. Mostly because I'm a broke piece of shit NEET who's only a hair's breadth away from homelessness and what very little I have, I want to hold furtively onto because I don't have the means to replace it.
Good luck with that, a study done by the library of congress showed that >70% of all cd discs will last over 100 years
I collect shit because I wanted it as a kid but couldn’t find it/afford it, it’s some cool looking vidya related thing, or it’s a vidya that’s getting rare that I either want to play or it’s on the backlog, and I own physical copies of shit because I want a backup in case there is ever a point where we don’t have the internet for some bizarre reason, or we go through what we are now where a bunch of greedy people are taking down all the file sharing sites.
I dunno if that counts as much of a collector though.
A study done by a people who will lose funding if they found differently. Hope you use gold-based CDs.
It was done for their own benefit, since they archive huge amounts of important information. I'm sure it's all one big conspiracy though because your mate Dave's cd-r is totally fucked.
> when I moved to a smaller place, I threw away 95% of the cardboard boxes
You deserve to get raped by a pack of AIDS-niggers for that. Unless you are talking about those bargain bin boxes that were still fully-size but only came with a jewel case inside. Fuck those, 90% just air.
>marrying a skeleton
A man of taste, I see.
>Hard work pays off
What kind of hard work, Anon?
I donno anymore. Instead of actually packaging collectable worthy shit like fully illustrated and colored manuals full of in depth lore in the retail copy of the game, you have companies selling the collectible stuff separately like Nintendo and Amiibos.
Not so much seeing conspiracies as a learned paranoia due to experience with regards to studies done by federal institutions, especially since they do them for their own benefit.
>Furry and Jewish.
I hate this valvekike meme that anyone who collects physical videogame stuff is a manchild, and that anyone who even slightly approves physical stuff or discs is a hoarder who doesn't enjoy vidya.
I own a small physical vidya collection, not even thinking of grubbing anything out of anyone else's hands, and most of the time it's just stuff related to my favorite vidya, or old games that i bought back in the day. I don't do it to show off on others or compulsive collecting, but rather for nostalgia and the authentic feeling.
I still emulate sometimes, of course. But for vidya i really care about, i just enjoy owning and having all the extra stuff for that game. Plus i can get them for really cheap prices where i live so i'm not getting kiked anyways.
I thought you faggots cried so much about old vidya having a soul and new vidya being soulless raw products? Why do you want to eliminate physical format, one of the most notorious aspects of old vidya, and the little flair that vidya has left?
That cat is now dead. You do not understand the terror that is a parrot.
I don't buy "collector's editions", I just buy good games. The extra expensive editions with some plastic turd are also a pretty newish thing and weren't a thing on most consoles I own. Stuff like DLC codes and shit has made me not buy a lot of modern games since they're not complete and thus not worth owning. So when you got a collection of all the games you are interested in or liked playing for an old console you're all set, nothing is coming out worth getting these days anyway.
For me I think it's more about the people collecting video game paraphernalia to make trophy rooms dedicated to their own adolescence and not the purchasing of actual games or consoles.
She cute, and plays streetfighter, even at some tournaments
Yeah, the digital rental shilling is pretty intense here. I suppose it could be millenials who never owned games for real and don't get it but there's no doubt some lost marketer here trying to push for digital. The digital kikes really hate the used games market with a passion.
There is truth in what this Anon says. My old man kept his Atari 2600 and all the games he got during the 1980s he still plays that shit to this day. With a big shit eating grin while he plays Solaris.
A happy man that could not give a single fuck about new games or digital downloads.
I remember people even back on old /v/ bragging how they buy every single new AAA release possible if it has a collector's edition, even when they're fucking shit and they won't play it more than once simply because they can afford it. I bet these anons aren't so wealthy now.
>What drives people to "collect" video game shit?
Anyone got that image of the fag that bought multiple copies of MvCi because he thought its was going to be the next big esports thing.
No idea why he bought multiple copies, most likely a nigger.
Same thing that drives your mom to collect my semen in her anus.
There seems to be a lot of people who missed the boat and now can't afford older games, yet really wish they could. After seeing threads on here proclaiming the PS2 and PS3 as the best consoles ever i don't even want to think of the average age here.
That reminds me of the fool who bought tons of fidget spinners right as the fad ended.
Anon you just signed your own get fucked warrant.
Dang, I hadn't even noticed it was a stock phrase.
Im not even sure. I've always had an autistic instinct to archive things, for reasons unknown. Though I'm somewhat sure it came from some gene from my hoarder grandpa Like, in most games I feel the urge to collect every possible piece of data possible, like in Morrowind all the books and notes, and in Resident Evil all the files. It's like I want people to remember them and keep them safe, or I like having a library of various games. For me it feels like a museum of preservation and nostalgia. I don't really feel the same for anything post 6th generation however. Someday I hope to be able to pass down the passion to a son, who may or may not sell it, (which I don't really care if he does). Pretty sure in another timeline I would be a librarian or a museum owner, or maybe even a zookeeper.
Keeping books isn't hoarding. Otherwise what would that make libraries?
A hoarder's nest?
>i don't know why I do these illogical and stupid things
see a psychologist, or a priest.
Hoarding is a manifestation of the natural need to acquire and keep a stash of resources for difficult times, winter, or an unknown future use. Since the world has become increasingly complex, while also becoming increasingly nihilistic with regards to having an understandable framework with which to define good from bad or useful from unnecessary, the human brain will ascribe importance to items which serve no purpose or provide some psychological comfort from the feeling of helpless alienation that modernity has brought.
Basically, in the absence of a comprehensible and tested traditional lifestyle, people are bent on accruing meaningless things to fill the void, compounding the problem when self-awareness is involved. This is why "consumerism" isn't related to any particular economic system, but rather springs from the same philosophical black hole.
fuck that yoshi
fuck in that yoshi costume
>all these posts claiming collecting is only for autists and braggarts
I only "collect" over time by playing games, then I keep the physical copies as reminders of all the games I've played. If you buy games and you play a decent variety, you'll naturally build a solid collection over the years.
I play a lot of games and buying games would not only be a waste of money, a hassle, but also a waste of space. I don't need cardboard and discs cluttering my home. I don't keep physical copies, if I move I just throw all that in the garbage where it belongs.
Always wanted to have a collection but never could. Be glad you have the opportunity to do so.
You don't belong here, and you will never fool anyone.
>Why do some people do this thing that has been done since the beginning of humanity
There's absolutely nothing wrong with exterminating kikes, niggers, and spics.
What a coincidence, the garbage is the perfect place for your posts to go as well; why should anyone give a fuck about your opinion?
Lemmy kept all of his left boots because they might come in handy one day. For me, I'm glad I kept all the big box PC shit so I have manuals still.
>majority of thread shitting on nu-male and dad collecta shits
>buying and collecting free things because something something evolution

it does, collectables only have value when they're unopened.
>I don't keep physical copies, if I move I just throw all that in the garbage where it belongs.
Clearly a troll.
Run out of browsers, kid?
how many VHS tapes do you have bro?
>you will run out of games to play for your old console
Flash carts if you aren't talking about really obscure shit
>go cancerous with shitty emulation that will never be the same as the games running on the original hardware
Just get original controllers with USB adapters and don't use a gay LCD monitor. Emulation is accurate enough for the majority of pre-6th gen stuff and you can play the dozens of consoles that you wouldn't otherwise bother buying. Personally I do that and have each 6th gen console with the means to pirate on them (and you can do that with softmods besides for the gamecube and DS, i just use a wii for the former because somebody gifted me one and i don't think the differences from running on a gamecube are significant enough) and my backlog is still pretty overwhelming.
What was in that post? Did mark delete those screenshots proving he's a furry again?
>you will never play video games with her
They don't seem bad to me considering how much worse it could be. Kind of interesting when changes are made during the actual time period it's from like that hand guard.
Who are you talking to that even calls anyone a troll, nigger?
I think a quick trip to Ebay will prove otherwise
>world is going to shit

Making them impossible for others to afford for a cloned consumer-able product isn't something I'd call a materialistic endeavor.
>STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKE: The Thread
>What drives people to "collect" video game shit? What are these people like? Do you know any?
I started collecting games in the 90's because I liked RPGS and it was cheaper to buy them used than rent them because of how long they take to finish. By the time the mid 2000's rolled around, I had about 200 games from the PS1 and PS2 and Xbox too. I never replayed any game save for maybe one or two. When I finally heard digital sales were a thing, my older titles were worth a bit of money. I sold everything except the Persona series and FF series and a few favorites because I assume they would go up in value more and I might want to replay one of them one day. I ended up making more than what I paid for them and always was the lowest price listed.
I will say, that when I had 200 titles lined up on a bookshelves, they looked really nice. I would sometime stare at the shelf as if was a scrapbook of memories. Now I have nothing but contempt for the shit that gets made today and I wouldn't collect a damn thing and every one of you stay the fuck off my lawn…
rpgs were never good though

Gay goy is a pedo. What a surprise
It's not the collection, it's the hunt.
I really don't think it's stupid or illogical anons. Most of the "consumerism" you claim I participate in comes from flea markets or local stores, or at worst eBay. I love to share my games with friends when I get a chance, and explain history on specific games.
At this point though, all my games are in storage because my apartment is too small to hold them, also I'm going to college and simply have no time. I view it as similar to collecting books or stories. Having a library of ROMs isn't the same as having a case with a manual and game inside, because that shows the effort thoughts the creators were putting into the design and story. I want the physical copy of VTMB, because troika is gone and will be forgotten, but with my copy I can ensure that people won't forget. I'll let them borrow it, and have as many people play as possible. Most of the games I have are from an era that is bygone, and never went towards the companies that helped butcher it, only the customers that remember it.
>Hole born from not living a traditional lifestyle
That's not true. Most hoarding is born from kids who's parents wouldn't allow them to have anything, and they manifest a need to have everything as a result. Also your analysis seems to be a jump from what little I explained about myself (assuming that wasnt just trying to give me a possible explaination).
anyone who "collects" anything to a serious degree probably has mental problems. I thought I was a "collector" of religious items because I have a few hindu idols and like 5 rosaries, 2 of which are actually valuable.
I had no idea what sorta of insane idolatry to soulless objects other people commit.
I had a friend who did this a decade ago. He was pretty cool. Don't think he really plays games anymore.
when it comes to games, I just like to have the original physical copy available if I reasonably can. Though I also like to collect hardware and peripherals that have some significance to me. I think the weirdest thing I own is the E-Reader version of Mario Party
>He's got a noob-tube
If I can't have it, nobody can.. eh?
Merchandise "hunting" is the laziest, least entertaining, and least meaningful of all hunts. I'd put more stuck in veal and game.
>Do you know any?
I do indeed. In fact, I know the guy in OP's pic. Pretty cool guy. Hooked me up with a Sega Saturn once for nothing.
Unresolved trauma most likely. When a person goes through a traumatic incident they have no control over the situation so collecting and organizing inane shit makes them feel safe and comfortable. This is why you see 30 to 40 year old balding men without families clinging on to tens of thousands of dollars of plastic garbage. It fills a hole in their life that would be filled with a wife and kids.
I mainly collect usable shit like MTG cards or game related comics/manga such as legend of zelda/res evil comics.

The only problem I see with collecting vidya is the fucking backlog. I aint as old as some of you fucks only been playing games for around 16 years but I have never sold or uninstalled games never spent too much but my fucking backlog is now huge.
I have only just got round to playing Lost Kingdom this week.

Oh, you're just a fucking kid then, you really haven't defined yourself as a hoarder or anything yet. If 20 years from now you live in a room full of toy figurines and vidya posters, then you can say you have a problem.
>tfw I went through a horsefucker phase
What the fuck was wrong with me?
Why is emulation worse than original hardware? You can mod original controllers or use adapters to work with pc and you can even use CRTs if you want to go full 90s. Please explain.
yep, cutelilfur visits this place.

>Whats the lore behind this?
Alright so the guy who looks more autistic is called Pat the NES punk. He started off as the standard run of the mill AVGN clone back in the day and overtime became a bitter angry man who runs a podcast. He recently got in hot shit for calling people who said the new diablo mobile game was shit "man babies" who were crying over nothing. He did this while in his room surrounded by his plastic childhood toys and video games
Don't forget he dropped twenty five thousand dollarydoos on an NES cart.
>telling people you have amiibos
he's right though. seek help.
He also has talked on several occasions on how he was fat as a teen and bullied which could easily tie into the OCD like behavior. And he's also mentioned that the few times he takes women home on a date the second they see his collection 90% of them are gone.
the man is nearly 40 years old with no wife and a literal ton of plastic crap
>he's also mentioned that the few times he takes women home on a date the second they see his collection 90% of them are gone.
While Pat is a cuck, jesus CHRIST. When will It's Okay To Hate Women be a thing?
a huge dose of obsessive compulsive disorder.
Collectors are really bad for gaming, in particular, game preservation. Many of the things they collect are one of a kind, which means no dumping or archiving of the contents despite the fact they are mostly digital.
They do this because they literally get their rocks off at knowing they are the sole owner of a piece of history. Which is really bad when you consider that some of this may suffer from degradation eventually. Such as old CD-roms, tapes, or hard drives.
The new current year was a few days ago anon
>you're valid (next to the validation icon)
>can we all agree
>can we all appreciate
I went to a womans home in her 20s and she had Justin Bieber and korean Idol posters and lifesize paper cutouts all over the fucking place. Accumulative obsession is a massive redflag most of the time.
The thing that pisses me off about collectors isn't even the autistic OCD shit they do it's that they don't even play the games they buy. They sit on ebay all day and go to goodwills to get games to fill space on their shelf. So instead of someone who actually wants to play the game getting it the middle age balding loser gets it
>They do this because they literally get their rocks off at knowing they are the sole owner of a piece of history. Which is really bad when you consider that some of this may suffer from degradation eventually. Such as old CD-roms, tapes, or hard drives.
This. There's very few things that pisses me off more than seeing video game prototypes and other lost media get destroyed by faggots who think that hoarding these things gives them bragging rights or worse, destroyed to create something else. At least that Metal Jesus guy was able to get someone to dump the IPL on his US 64DD prototype.
>it's that they don't even play the games they buy.
I especially hate it when they buy new games that they know are going to be shit but still want to have it in their collection because they're a "die hard fan/collector of the series" or just for "shits and giggles". It just contributes to more money towards developers making bad games.
As much as a fag he is sometimes, it's pretty impressive to have a complete NES collection
Wow he seems like a fag.
>focus on yourself
Tough to do when you hate yourself. Good advice though.
>The thing that pisses me off about collectors isn't even the autistic OCD shit they do it's that they don't even play the games they buy.
Thats the difference between a fag collector that hordes shit and a guy that just buys a lot of vidya. The fag will never play them.
There used to be an old videogame shop where I lived, the guy who owned it was a vidya collector.
Upon talking with him it turns out he didn't really know shit about videogames, set his prices based on ebay and owned a stamp collecting store before then.
The fucker didn't care what he had, just as long as he had as many of it as possible.
Fuck me dead I can't believe you cunts actually integrated.
Yeah I "collected" SNES games as a kid but the big difference was I ALWAYS played them. I bought them to play them not to resell them or for them to look nice on a shelf
>The fucker didn't care what he had, just as long as he had as many of it as possible.
That's the core philosophy of the collector. It's all a dick measuring contest to them "I have this amazing rare game you could never afford in my collection" it's either that or they buy just to resell for a higher price which is even more scummier
Is this jealousy because they have something you don't? Or is it disgust that someone would >buy a game rather than pirating it? I'm honestly curious.
to be able to play games by reaching into their huge bookcase of games that aren't really organized, what a fucking nightmare
i'm assuming that guy is a jew collector?
>to be able to play games by reaching into their huge bookcase of games that aren't really organized, what a fucking nightmare
I have hard copies of certain games, but I can't be bothered to open the cases and plop them in a console, and then take them out and switch games.
So much easier to digitally load them up or emulate them, instant booting.
disgust at grown men collecting toys, surrounding themselves with toys while also sucking at them.
Iktf, hadn't watched past season 3, but I can't deny that it wasn't comfy. Also MLP:FiM aired 8 years ago. Let that sink in.
He got out months ago, and the first thing he did was log in on his pornhub account it earned him several achievements, that's how people noticed, and yes pornhub does have achievements, i'm surprised he still remembers the password.
Isn't that what everyone on this board does though? Collect a bunch of what well adjusted normalfags would call junk and children's toys?
We play games here. That's it. If you want to collect shit go to cuckchan /toys/
Some of us remember how easy it was as a kid to fuck up CDs. I've lost some good games to a scratched disc.
>google thing you want
>buy it off ebay or some other page
<heh, this extreme hunt sure gives me a true adrenaline rush!
>We play games here. That's it.
Based on most of the threads here it's hard to believe that.
isn't that what a abducts and sells kids would say?
>We play games here. That's it.
>all their discs fail.
>My vidya collection is literally a HardDiskDrives with .iso and GOG installers.
Some ironies are best left dramatic, to heighten the effect
Shhhhh, don't tell them human nature! They can't know pearls, shells and rocks were picked and collected!
Who even cares about Venus Willendorf!
Somebody really hates AlphaOmegaSin
Don't worry Logan, some people hate others because they are successful.
What's the irony?
inb4 your HDD fall
Can always buy a new one.
>But for vidya i really care about, i just enjoy owning and having all the extra stuff for that game.
Manual, figures, artbook, sure.
But enjoy a fucking disc? How do you enjoy it?
>I thought you faggots cried so much about old vidya having a soul and new vidya being soulless raw products? Why do you want to eliminate physical format, one of the most notorious aspects of old vidya, and the little flair that vidya has left?
Disc or no-disc has no affect on the soul of the product.
Lauren Faust is talented. Season one was genuinely good. But yes, I am kinda embarrassed at the implied lack of masculinity, especially since so many pussymen liked the show too.
I can always buy coasters too.
>People didn't have entire rooms full of shells and rocks, lmao
Cavemen, am I rite!
>And it's time to stop.
You hate culture and civility?!?
My shock! I thought museums were to bang chicks!
Different game insert Carlos track
What do you mean by coasters?
Everything. We were supposed to have a nuclear war some time before 1960 but for some reason they fucked up and now we are squirming maggots in the gangrenous body of a dying civilization.
What I do when I place a cold one on my unrecoverables.
Kids call them bricks, right?
sometimes the cases the aol cds came in were handy
>when a literal pedo nigger straight out of jail has a job and you don't
Time to write some applications I guess.
Absolutely. I already retaught my children the value of Reuse, Recycling, and most importantly Reduce, down to the smallest nanometer. Nature's a bitch, right?
Thank you for agreeing m8.
And homo sapiens aren't the only species that collect, hunt, track, and skin, far from it.
It's something far more, organic.
>pornhub does have achievements
What the fuck?
Every animals collects differently.
Did you never took science, or cursory biology?
Fuck having a job. NEETing it up is a great way for vengeance against normalfags who robbed me of my youth.
Yeah, one assumes authority over some contrived rules or notions of believe, and the other just states a state if being, in this case a fact.
Are facts hard for you to comprehend, or is your projective bias making it difficult to grasp people archive because it's how all organisms adapted to survive mother earth's harshness?
Did you know gaming teaches children how to hunt and fend for themselves?
And how videogames were initially a test for eye to movement coordinate to operate tanks and flying machines?
Or do you do little to investigate the limited knowledge capable for you to access and absorb?
I was sick but even if I wasn't no one would have invited me anyway.
Fuck "goals" and "accomplishments". Normalfags robbed me of my youth, now they expect me to wageslave? You can't have your cake and eat it too, this is like all these assholes at school who would never want to talk to me but when I was the only one around with homework done they'd suddenly turn nice. They can't forbid me from having the teenage Brazzers life and ostracize me in general and then expect to throw me into the work force as soon as I'm out of high school.
>Normalfags robbed me of my youth,
What a joke you are.
>good and bad don't matter or don't exist
Yes, nature didn't write rules of morality, Darwin only theorized what allowed others to thrive versus those that extinct.
Are you saying nature taught itself not to extinct some species instead of others? Or is learned behavior not an evolutionary advantage, with complex brains, to adapt to new stimulae?
>you're lost and confused. seek help.
Creationist? Did God told Adam and Eve they were omniscient before or after they ate the fruit of knowledge of good and evil?
That was directed towards me. He thinks I can just go to a friend store and instantly fix up my life in a minute. Or that I can go back in time and change my history into a normal life during my crucial periods of growing up.
Animals ought not go extinct. Sucks for all Cretaceous species. They couldn't survive an asteroid, dumb animals, am I precise?
Come on, that shit doesn't work forever.
Which of the shits? I posted 3 shits already. I think there's a /tech/ thread someone posted something actually proven scientifically proven to last longer than metal & polymers.
>oughts apply to humans; beings who have the capacity to understand right and wrong and act as such.
>read Socrates, Plato, Epictetus, Buddha or the bible, you're totally confused by modernist drivel.
The irony. Who authored these? Animals, or philosophical men?
Did you know™ some species like mankin have theory of mind evolved too, and make tribes, rules, and punishments?
Do you check under your bed for normalfags before you go to sleep?
He was and is a hack.
>being a christcuck
This was a setup.
All I can say is this shit looks much better in real life even though some detail is lost on cards if your not looking closely. I’m planning on ordering some prints soon to spruce up my place.
Figures, real men play Yugioh.
Did you need to apply that philosophy to your images, too?
I always wondered if you can really shave yourself with an axe
>we should read philosophy written by men
>You would benefit from this
Thank you God[s], I should cover from your mights because rules and lies about nature I never explored believing silly made up stories exist to conform. We wouldn't explorers or dare I say, challengers.
You ought to read the scientific method, it's also written by mankin.
Sometimes. E.g. don't have to be megabytes long.
> why do you have video game stuff?
Sometimes I want to play video games, and sometimes I need to videogame shit to fulfill that task. And if I ever think I might want to play that thing again, I hold on to it and whatever accessories I might need to complete that task. It's pretty simple. I don't have some kind of crazy gamer room or collection to show off to anybody, but I do have a decent amount of video game crap in storage boxes. Just in case I need them at some point.
You know there is a difference between a video game collector enthusiast vs a video game collector scalper: One enjoys the game and has disposable income to buy whatever is out there that fancies their interest, while the other does it do be the rare 1% that has the rarest of rare games. Those latter people also destroy other copies to "increase" the value of their rare games. Those collectors are the scum that could care less about the game or history of it if they can somehow turn on a profit on it later in 5-10 years. Those are the worse kinds of people out there.
>theres a difference between a faggot that hoards games and faggots that hordes games
>What drives people to "collect" video game shit?
The same reason people collect bottlecaps, stamps or antiques. It's a hobby that they find personal enjoyment in it.
>normalfags who robbed me of my youth
What does that even mean?
>what are the hardest games you've "finished" ?
that's subjective. I didn't find DaS2 difficult at all; I just hated it and thus it was by far one of the hardest games I've finished. because i didn't even want to play.
Normalfags stole my swag
>Those latter people also destroy other copies to "increase" the value of their rare games
Did you read what you just wrote? In what crazy conspiracy theorist world would that ever make sense?
Scalpers deserve to be thrown tomatoes.
Tfw still do this when I go out on nature runs, finding bones and skulls makes me the most happy. Have abnormal urged to pick up random seeds and the like too, sometimes to see if they'll grow under me.
I blame my highly Celtic ancestry.
I know it's true but that whole post somehow reads like a line straight out of an anime
You can do it, anon. I went to the OfficeMax today to get some tape and G2 Pilot Pens and the NEGRO at the cash register clearly didn't want to be there. He said nothing as I approached the register and took seconds too long to click on the kiosk to progress the sale. He was chewing gum, had long dreadlocks just out and about not tied up, made no eye contact and mumbled as the sale went on.
If he can get a job, you can too!
>>having no goals
where did he say that?
*Scalpers deserve to be robbed
why wouldnt they just keep them? same idea
Damn, is that why I don't like video games? Because I don't buy a bunch of worthless merchandise?
The lack of a soul or some such thing inside themselves that they desperately need to fill with material things.
>1post by this (((ID)))
>drive by shitposting should be allowed

>le ebin fenceshitter
Kill yourself, kike.
I started to collect Gamecube and PS2 games but then I realized three things: I'm never gonna play most of the shit; somebody else who actually would appreciate this stuff would be better off with it; and finally I can simply get ISO fullsets and emulate or softmod the systems I own anyway. I'm still reluctant to part with my childhood copies of stuff like Kingdom Hearts, Katamari, Melee, Destroy All Monsters, etc because of the sentimental value in them however.
Probably being on the payroll of his dad's company since he was 10 so that the old man could dodge taxes, before slotting into an undeserved management role after failing his own business ventures to do nothing but fuck up procedures with his own dimwitted ideas and garner the hatred of everyone else.
>using typical leftist psychology to explain things
I knw some1 like that. he collects everything tho.

>DVDs/posters/manga of his anime of choice
>other neety stuff like pins that he shamelessly pins it on his bag everywhere he goes (it's a MLP pin)

Immediately regrets his decision everytime after buying these things, I guess they are driven by impulse.
I love the fact that /pol/ uses the soy meme while unironically praising Hitler, who's war effort was only possible with soy.
It's "Wow, just wow…"-tier these days.
This is why Hitler lost.
Hello Satan, I regret to inform you that 8ch has a pretty large amount of Christians.
nazis get rekt EPIC style by one mad dubsposter
how can they ever recover
If you weren't so buttblasted over it the meme would have never taken off.
Collectors I know barely even beat their games, they are super casual players. Ask them what's the hardest game the beat and they'll say something about how they play for fun and not winning.
You can enjoy them without losing a room to them.
The hat alone is bad enough
The taint is with you always.
Years ago I used to use a half decent forum and the admin was cool with anything (bar CP) right up to the point where he turned into a tremendous cuck faggot who suddenly (cos of twitter cunts) gave a shit that some trannies were upset about being told the truth and someone saying 'nigger' and so I immediately left and never went back.
Why the fuck would anyone continue posting in a place where the admin is this much of a faggot? I get that forcing reality down their throats is absolutely necessary but I'd much rather be somewhere faggots like this aren't.
In middle school I didn't really have any hobbies so that's where all my money went.
Then I got a hobby and found emulators so it was win-win.
Man where do I start with how accurate that is?

I have no idea who this shitskin is but he looks like Samwise Gamgee if he were a nigger.
I know one. And yeah, he's a weird guy. Very smart and talented programmer, but weird. I never saw him actually play any games. Just program them. But I'd assume he does play them. He collects tons of Nintendo shit. Like a copy of every SNES game ever released in the USA, for example. He finished that collection a while back.
I don't know why a person would want to collect one of every SNES game. But it's pretty cool that he actually did it.
PS2 is better than whatever gay old console you have in mind.
collectors are good goyim with rat-level mentality
if the fat kid removed the hat, got a haircut he would be whatever-tier. but that fucking hat and greasy hair really ruin him

>all these people not being able to comprehend that liking something a lot means there's a good possibility you'll spend a lot of cash on it and in turn own a lot of the shit you like
I don't have a very big collection but it's growing since I like to own, and not just rent stuff and don't like selling my things because I grow attached to them.
But fuck those guys who just buy games to collect them, they are scum.
