A Vintage Sample

Going through some old photos tonight, I came across one that I took of a sample of my game collection. This was from March of 2004 when I was being interviewed for the CBC Radio 1 show Main Street.
Glorious Consoles
In shot we have a boxed Nintendo Power Glove, Super Nintendo Super Scope 6 and Sega Master System arcade stick. Consoles on display are a SNES, Sega Genesis Mark I, a purple Game Boy Advance, a silver Game Cube, an N64 and a NES.

The microwave box contained the rest of my game consoles. The box at left front was all games, controllers, power adapters and connection cables, all mostly in labelled zip-lock bags (because I’m like that). The box behind it is a few more controllers and mostly Atari and Colecovision gear.

My nephew recently had a go with the Power Glove and was rather disappointed that it didn’t work like a Wiimote.  Aren’t we all?

I think at that time I had maybe 22-25 consoles.  One of these days I’m going to break down and get a Sega Megadrive to have here. Click on the Games link at the top of the page for a current list o’ my gaming bits.
