For me, that's a definite hell no. My old consoles and games will follow me to my grave. Also I want to keep them so that if I ever have children they'll know what good games are and appreciate the classics.

I sold or gave away all my NES, Gameboy, SNES, Jaguar, Saturn, Genesis, 32x, etc games and systems... I sold my PS1 but luckily kept the games.

That was probably my biggest regret.

Never. I remember when I was 6, I got the N64 with Mario Kart. Even though I don't actually many games for it (just Mario Kart, Super Mario 64, Super Smash Bros, and Mario Golf), I played countless other classics at friends' houses, and it is the system that started my gaming hobby. Because of it, I've went from driving the wrong way in Mario Kart to noscoping people in Halo 3. I'll never forget the N64, even though it is just sitting in some closet somewhere in the house.

I'll never get rid of my collection however, I do wonder what I'm gonna do with them before I pass away if I don't have kids who would takeover. I hope they open up a video game museum in my life time so I can just donate it to them before I bite the dust.

I don't think I ever would either. I went through a brief period of trading all PS2 games I wasn't playing to EB and completely regret it now. Thank God I didn't touch my NES collection.

you should be ashamed of yourself..........

and to the TC, NO WAY you'll see me selling any of my legacy consoles or games. I sold a few of my NES and Genesis games when i was much younger and I regret it. fortunately I still have all my consoles and most of my old games (plus a ton more that i've bought). Nowadays I continue to add games and consoles to my collection here and there. I honestly think I'll put my game collection in my will. If something happened to me, my brothers and friends would definitely want my games.

I just sold my whole collection. Well everything older then 10 years..... You can look on my info page under FunkyHeadHunter. I had many consoles and many games.

I now have everything on Emulators. It saves much room and time and its easier for me. My kids will always get to play the oldschool games, but on PC now..:)

I dunno. If I own a game that is worth $200 maybe. Then again that would be cool to own a game worth $200.

NEVER!! NES SEGA GENESIS these were my first two consoles along with the GB. when i was little i spent so much time playing them and i still play them. getting rid of them and giving away so many save files that i have that i spent countless hours on... no way. i remember about 5 years ago my parents tried pushing me to donate to a hospital or something.. i flipped out.. but i held strong and still have them.. every system.

I got rid of a crapload of my N64 games long time ago. I regret it now, and don't plan on getting rid of my current games for the most part.

I don't think I could live with myself if I got rid of my PS1 or N64 games. I was stupid as a youth and sold off my Genesis games, figuring I couldn't use them with a broken Genesis...if only I knew I could buy one later on in life!

It got to be so much of a pain for me always moving around and having to lug boxes and boxes of videogame junk. Like the 50 pound ball of power wires interwoven with 20 pounds of rf adapters. That and sometimes having to sleep in my car.

I gave my games to people I thought could cary on the legacy. As for me now I collect computers. My long term goal is to build 4 or five arcade boxes and rig up the computer inside to boot up windows xp and then organize the shortcuts on the desktop for all the old stuff. They must be powered by a wind turbine with a batery storage and power inverters. For those power outage days when all you can do is read a book I will fire up Donkey Kong.

It only takes an 800 megaherz microprocessor to run a super Nintendo emulator without any other junk installed. I have piles of those parts, all I need are a couple good old hard drives and to buid a cabinet. I'am a good woodwork and self proclaimed computer engineer.

Never!! Hell No!! Even Though I Only Have An NES, GameBoy Color, PlayStation, And PlayStation 2, Which I'm Sad Cause Most People Have More, I'll Never Sell Any Of Them!! My PS1 Was A Gift To Me For Getting An Honor A Few Years Ago, And I Worked Hard To Get My PS2!! The GameBoy On The Other Hand Just Came Home One Day In A Box, With One Game... I Think It Was 74 In 1... The NES Is Older Than Me I Think... But I'm Proud To Have It! Though My NES Doesn't Have Anymore Games... And My PS1 And GameBoy Are At My Cousins House... I'll Get It Back After A Few Years, And Have Them With Me Till I Have Kids Then I Pass It On...

No. I used to sell some of my games & consoles, but not anymore. And there's no way I'll ever sell my SNES... it was my first console and I don't plan on getting rid of it.

If the videogame industry keeps growing like it is now, and all of the "Antiques" I onw become worth a lot of money in like 30 years or so I would. Right now my ultimate goal is to open a video game museum, and I'l like to keep my stuff as contributions.
