    If that means the "golden Zelda Cart" and in good condition, then I have one too. It is shit game (for our time now) but it is an uber sexy cart.

    I got my DS a couple of days ago ^_^
    Best money spent in a long time...
    :)
    I got Another Code and Nintendogs.
    Nintendogs seems like a retarded game, but when you play it you realise that only one of the hosts for the dog competitions is.
    :p

    I want in !!!

    NES (since 1991, and still works!!!)

    Game Cube

    N64 (I love eBay)

    Must get a DS (Mario Kart will be awesome), and am dying for Revolution !!!!

    For the record, Mario games are always the most fun (ALWAYS!!!), Metroid games are the most epic, and Zelda games are the best. Ever. Ever ever ever!!!

    Um, so what number am I ?

    I've owned a n64, sold it on ebay and shipping it monday. I now own a chipped GC. I don't want to join the club, but on the revolution; is anyone else thinking that by dumbing down the controls and minimising the buttons the games are going to get even more stupidly simple to cater for the hellokittyZOMGGIRLSPLAYGAMES! market?

    I like Nintendo but they already make cartoony games as it is and I can so see them slipping into the kids market with a controller so basic any moron can pick it up and swing their arm around.

    (Yes I know you can use a gc controller with it but that wont help if the games are so retardedly basic).

    On the other hand they've had huge success with the 'party' series which are basically compliations of really simple games so I can see their train of thought behind the design, but still.. what about the epic games.

    Fair point, but you need to realise that Nintendo are trying to change the way games are played. The controller is pretty fun by the looks of it. The motion sensitivity in it is an EXELENT idea in my books. The other controllers from Sony and Microsoft are just the same thing over again. The controller is going to rule, you'll see...

    The new controller truly is revolutionary. Nintendo are taking a huge chance, but I think it will pay off, and they will be remembered for it, as opposed to the others who are to afraid to try something different.

    I have no doubt it's innovative and will function well, i'm just a bit reserved with the limitations it brings. Something like Zelda which is turning into hack slash slash etc. and solve random puzzle every half hour (I haven't played wind waker yet, last zelda game i played was ocarina of time) is going to work on a movement based controller how?

    I saw the demo movie and they were all party games like fishing, bowling, boxing, tennis etc. Mario Tennis is good, but I really don't see epic games coming off to well in terms of the complexity dept. with a movement based controller. Let alone RSI and the novelty of swinging a sword with your arm wearing off in thirty seconds.

    I do most of my gaming at night/late evening... I really don't want to come home from work and have to swing my arm around and what not just to play a game. The Revolution controller seems to be a novelty thing for the kid/girl/homosexual games market, even down to the actors they use on the promo videos advertising the thing...

    I'm scared Nintendo, very scared :(.

    Shard: i don't think it's a problem, but in any case you can plug in a Gamecube controller and use that.

    Also have 6 or so consoles and 5 or so zappers, countless controllers etc

    I just found anther stash that I'll have to update into the list :shock:

    if anyone has games that I don't have on my list and that want anything off my list please PM me and we can keep this thread nice and clean.

    Still waiting to charge my Digicam batteries to get charged (read: need to buy a charger - or C'mon Santa!) before I post some pics of my collection.

    I had $159 in my head as the price.


    As I recall, Mario was bundled with the console and then they stopped the offer just as we went to buy it. Two sad kids faced with only enough money for the console was enough to convince them to chuck it in for free.

    do we still have the box?
