    Ahh Space Harrier!

    One of my fave memories is completing it in the hydraulic version with a small crowd of people watching me.

    Darius too, loved that triple screen setup so much.

    Yeah, that one got me. I love the Darius series, and have always wanted a super wide or multi-screen setup for it.

    If ultra-wide monitors every become cheap, I'd set that up (and a few other games - Ninja Warriors, etc).

    When I played it for the first time, I think my mind was just blown at how brilliant games could be.

    Then I found Cadash!

    Both of those just emptied my pockets every weekend.

    He trades stock as I understand. Here is cool article on him and his collecting:

    "Hopkins is hardly a reclusive hoarder – he often has friends and family over to enjoy his collection, found financial success through the stock market, and has a successful business repairing pinball machines. But his obsession seeps into other aspects of his life."
