Hi my name is Nick I am a full time college student majoring in computer information systems.  I have been gaming since the 90's.  My first video that I remember and console was Deja Vu on the NES (front loader of course).  I would always get stuck or arrested or killed when the woman in the coat confronted me, years later I looked up a walk through for it, and it turns out you only have to hit her to proceed (what kind of message does that send? Geez Nintendo  ;D )  Then I also had a Super Nintendo, but I didn't have that many games for it for whatever reason (I ended up selling it to Game Crazy when I was about 10 for 12 bucks >:(  Stupid me. )  Then I got a PS1 and the rest is history.  Below is a picture of my NES collection as well as my consoles (not pictured are my Wii, NES, and PS2 )  I have just found Pinball with a converter the other day so now I'm ready to buy Famicom games as soon as I have the funds to.   :)

It would be a bad thing if you actually used it.  My VCR I used as a table for a while now it's just on a shelf somewhere.  I guess newer tvs don't take cable coax anymore.  I havn't watched cable tv in forever watching stuff on the internet is much easier.

I stopped using rf in like....the end of the 80s.  Then it was composite for ages until I learned what s-video was and how to get it out of all my favourite consoles.

50 bucks says you'll never beat that Star Voyager. :gamer:


I bet 100 bucks you're right, unless I find myself plagued with insomnia... ::)

Hey there!

I've been a long-time lurker until I finally decided to register a couple of months ago and now I'm taking the next step and finally write something.
I'm usually posting on forums like Assemblergames/shmups.com and, to a lesser extent, some Sega Saturn boards under the nickname "ave", which had already been taken here on FC world.

I have to admit, I never grew up with neither the NES or Famicom. When I started collecting games around 8 years ago, I felt some strange attraction towards the NES, however. I think it's because I used to play a lot of GameBoy when I was a kid and I consider the GameBoy a portable NES in aspects of gameplay and simplicity.
Since I collect only Japanese games and I think the package design of the Famicom boxes is amazing, I finally decided to buy my first Famicom in... err, around early 2008. Since then I've accumulated a nice collection of boxed/complete games (condition varies between a bit used and mint) for both FC and FC disk as well a variety of boxed consoles. I like to both play and collect Famicom and I have indeed the goal to own a complete CIB collection at some point in my life (at least of all non-prize titles, but including rereleases) ;D

Needless to say Game Center CX is one of my absolute alltime favorite shows and I watched every episode multiple times. At least the translated ones, the raw episodes are a bit hard to follow and I'm lost with most of the jokes (my Japanese is quite basic), so except if the game really interests me, I stick with the English ones.

Anyway, I think obsessed with Famicom as I am, this could be a place I like. Many fellow FC-fanatics here, it seems  ;D

Oh, and while I'm at it - is there any place where people post their collections (with pictures)? I'd love to see some other Famicom dojos. Few people in the West seem to collect for this console :)

Oh, I just noticed - didn't register "a couple of months ago" but 3 years and 3 months ago. Time flies by, eh  ;D

Thx! I think this is a great place, not too many forums where you have more than max. 1-2 other people around who even own a Famicom!
