Well, see title, basically.

My thing for the last couple years is records (I'm up over 50 now!), mainly new albums over older music.

Also Steam games, but I mean, I'm not sure my library is worth mentioning on here. I have a fair number of Amiibo, but that's more just buying the odd one that I want over actively trying to get them.

For a while there, I was collecting Pinky: St figures. They are super cute and a lot of fun to play around with!

Nice Master Chief head.

As for me, uh... dust? heh I don't really collect old games, but I have enjoyed pulling the save files off of them, or at least GB(C) games. It's fun to see what other people have done in their own worlds.

I don't really have much else I knowingly keep a ton of, or at least any amount that would be considered collecting...

I collect malware and try to reverse some for fun.

...or I just laugh at some of the terribly poor phishing attempts written in some sort of PHP UI framework (it exists, somehow).


It's a strange hobby.

For some reason I like to collect hardcover video game guides for games I like ... Not a good habit, since they're so bulky and now I probably have to move :/

I collect all sorts of small nerdy mementos, including pearler sprites from every fighting game tournament I attend, including several EVO tournaments. I'll still need to find a new place for them, though...

The only thing I'd call much of a collection is trying to get all 7 Mega Man X games to come out on PC (or DOS for the first, 2 didn't see release.) I'm only missing X4 now.

Less directed, I suppose PC games in general? Preferably stuff from at least 10 years ago (or at least, standalone games not requiring Steam or the like). I don't know how many I have by now, but a bunch at least.

I do have a collection of random curios as well, on display on a shelf.

hoo boy, is this the thread for me

i own 221 out of 250 bionicle sets, and i own all of the comics and all but two of the variant comic covers

i've been collecting sega hardware for a couple years now, Mark III through Dreamcast plus all the (official) peripherals i can snag. Mega CD Karaoke Module has been consistently terribly priced so i've been holding off on that, but otherwise now that i have a dreamcast i can make an ivory tower of DC Karaoke modules, since they appear to be stackable! I'm also considering buying an SC-3000 once i'm a bit more ahead with money. unfortunately there's a tendency for me to get things that don't quite work so well, so i have two Sega 3D Glasses, two JP Saturns, two US Dreamcasts, etc.

Thinkpads are really all at the moment. I have an X201, X60 tablet, T60, T510, T430, two 600 (one X, one E)s, and a broken T42. Probably adding an X301 or non-tablet X60/61 soon.
If I had more money, old UNIX workstations (e.g. SGI, PA-RISC, Sun) would be happening too, but that's beyond my means. Someday, I hope...

Oi, collecting. Sometimes I should just stop. But then.. I don't.

But I try to limit myself, unsuccessfully.

Mostly I collect video games, but mostly only the games and systems I like. I amassed about 20 different systems with almost two fullsets and some exotic and nice stuff in it.

I love amiibos, have all of them except the gold Mario and Mega Man.

And New 3DS Cover Plates, I love these things.

And some people acuse me of collecting TVs. I don't know how they got that impression ^^;;

it’s cool to collect TVs, tbh. i have three (one 2001 Sharp LCD, a larger Phillips one and a tiny Sony one). i have a friend who has like 15 of them tho, and they have several of the heavy Sony PVM broadcast monitors stacked on top of each other.

me and one of my roommates combined have about 20 different consoles as well, though only a handful of games for each...

i'd love to get a PVM or BVM someday, ideally so i can play TGM on it :>
