Just my NES and Game Boy - and I don't know if the Game Boy works. The NES works fine, and I have a ton of cartridges. I wish I still had my Intellivision...

A couple of 2600s, Colecovision, C64, Sega Genesis, a number of Game Boys, NES and I think there's an SNES somewhere too... also VictorMaxx virtual reality goggles, got them at Big Lots for cheap, you use them with an SNES or Genesis but I have never tried hooking them up. They have a dinky little passive matrix LCD, Fresnel lens, stereo audio and an encoder that is supposed to move you left-right as you turn your head. I also have an Aura Interactor (basically a scaled-down Bass Shaker in a backpack).

Atari 2600, and NES as far as vintage goes - though I'm sure my super nintendo will soon become "vintage" if it hasn't already.

I wonder what an Atari 2600 with all of the accessories and plastic storage/carrying container that is in near mint condition would be worth round-a-bout these days.

I have a Gamecube and a PS2. Looking to sell the Gamecube, simply don't play it anymore.

My step-dad wanted to get a Wii for physical therapy.

The other day I saw an Atari retro setup for young people to dig on the "old school" stuff. Everything was miniature (of course). I thought about picking it up, but I already have enough irons in my fire with old, well, you name it. Now I am even getting old! Time flys for sure! Seems like only a few years ago I was getting the 2600 for Christmas around 1981, or so....

my little collection consists of:

Magnavox Odyssey 4000 (complete with box)
Sears Telegames version of Intellivision
Nintendo
Super Nintendo
Nintendo 64
Playstation 2 (daily driver)

The Intellivision knock-off Sears Telegames was our family's first video game system from way back. Thus, it is my sentimental favorite.

I guess it is textbook business practice to give people an 'effect', or what they want, with as little investment as possible (overhead). Really, business has always been that way; so I tend to wonder why it is that the further you go back in time with either products or services, the better they are, or are made. How could companies from the "good old days" manufacture, package, and market products for a fair price that were obviously built to last? Take nearly any product from around 40 years ago (and back) and compare it to something similar coming from your local STERILEmart. It is feather light plastic garbage, and even food product packaging is becoming smaller. Look at your small box of say Cocoa Pebbles. It went from small to TINY in the past two or three years!

Are businesses in general hurting so badly that they must continually cut back on quality and/or quantity over time just to stay afloat?
