The extent of my hardcoreness would we that I still have my PSX, controller, memory card and Final Fantasy VIII locked up for a rainy day. Other than that I still have my Dreamcast just for Shenmue and Seaman. I'll goto my grave saying Indigo Prophecy and Dreamfall; The Longest Journey are two of the best games of all time.
Top 5 Games:
1) Final Fantasy VIII
2) Indigo Prophecy
3) Shenmue I & II
4) Dreamfall; The Longest Journey
5) Rock Band/Guitar Hero series
Top 5 Books:
1) The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx
2) The Dirt by Motley Crue
3) Blue Rage; Black Redemption by Stanley Williams
4) Walk This Way by Aerosmith
5) Tommyland by Tommy Lee
Other than that I absolutely love long walks on the beach, drinking beer, and killen. Oh and Motley Crue FTW! Nikki Sixx is the man!
If anyone read my blog yesterday about my trip to Play N Trade, they know I've put together a "Retro Corner." I decided to run out today and add a few more games to my collection, but this time I hit a place called Discland, let me show you what I found and why I needed a change of pants...
Not Pictured: the kick ass Sweet Tea from McDonald's If you can't tell from my shitty camera phone picture those are SMB3, Legend of Zelda, Legend of Zelda : A Link to the Past, Super Punch-Out, WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game, Killer Instinct, Pilotwings, Fear Effect and THPS2. Not a bad haul for under 30 minutes if I don't say so myself. Add to that the fact I ordered Excitebike, Saturday Night Slam Masters, Ninja Gaiden (complete) and Rock'n Roll Racing (also complete) I'd say I have my gaming quota filled for awhile.
Now to what I've been working on these past few days...
By no means the best setup ever but I sure like it, just a regular TV with 4 systems; Playstation, Dreamcast, X-Box and Retro-Duo. But the beautiful thing about it? It's right next to my mini-fride filled with important beverages like Monster and beer. And for those keeping track, those are FFVIII figures, Squall, Rinoa and Seifer are all on top of the TV.
Now if you'll excise me, I have some gaming to do...
