Fetching Foregone Consoles

It started like any other trip to eBay. I was just browsing. I had no intention of buying anything.

12 minutes later I was the proud owner of an original Gameboy and 10 games.

I figured, "Hey, I own every other member of the Gameboy family; I NEED this to be complete."

Now I'm looking at getting a Dreamcast. There's just something intriguing about this failed system that draws me in: the strange controller, the exceptional graphics for the time, the list of cult classic games. Maybe the most appealing part of my quest to own a Dreamcast is the fact it was the only member of that console generation on which I didn't game. One thing I have heard though, is that everyone who ever owned a Dreamcast still has it. Interesting...

So now the choice looms in front of me: splurge on a piece of history (hehe) or save my cash and buy a hooker or two.
