Hmmm... well, I don't have enough space for more than one computer; everything's stacked on top of the dining table as it is - if I wave my knife & fork around too enthusiastically the printer tends to get a whack. lol I only ever play one game at a time, although I do keep favourite games installed for months after I finish them, just in case I feel like a replay.

Catbelly - you are not alone. I have two computors now. An older one with windows 98 for those really nice older games (safecracker, crystal key) that wont play on the new windows, and my almost new computor with all the bells and whistles for the newer games. However I feel left out, and almost ashamed I only have around 60 games. Have to change that I guess. I havent told my husband yet, but I have secretly been looking at a super gamers computor with even more bells and whistles. Have to wait for the right moment to tell him. Nice to know there are people like me. Are we closet gamers? whistle

I think it is ok to make our home computers into game museums (even as grand as Prof Windelnut's museum in Shivers if we could!) Once we boot up, we could visit any game that we desire.

Catbelly35, there's no need to feel guilty about it. Go ahead and spoil yourself.

Rushes, you are funny. laugh My house is actually quite small, but somehow I've managed to find space for the computers---the less important things like clothing and what-have-you get shoved to one side. wink

Catbelly,
Kinda sneaks up on ya doesn't it? I think we've all probably had that "Holy Cow" moment.
It's just good, clean, non-fattening fun as far as I'm concerned, and I absolutely refuse to feel guilty. wave

Right now I have 6 games loaded on the old laptop. That number isn't including the games I've kept on the hard drive that don't need a disk to play.(Like Safecracker and the MCF games) I just did a computer index of all of my games and came up with the huge number of 101 in my collection. I almost had a heart attack!!! Out of that number there are about 15 that I want to get rid of. The rest are keepers.

I also have more than one computer(5) lol
Each one has a few more bells and whistles than the previous ones so I can play a game no mater what the requirements are. I also have a win 98se also. Don't ask me how many game I have I've been afraid to count them. If I don't know I can't lie to my husband. laugh

So long as you hover around 100 or so - no worries...

I collect MAME images (the old video arcade games) from time to time, last time I checked I had nearly 1000 of them help

I have a ME and an updated XP and a Playstation 3. I don't have too many games because I give them to my children and grandchildren when I'm finished. Riven, Exile, Oblivion and Morrowind will always remain with me. And the Rhems. A few games I've destroyed in fits of rage but not too many. Probably have 30 games now with 3 installed on ME and six on the XP and two on Plystn.

Hi Becky, Yup you may ask and I'm going to get in trouble with some of these but here goes. Threepwood, I think that's his name, Siberia, Age of Mythology. Now Age of M, I bought it and my granddaughter, Erin, liked it so much I gave it to her. Bought another and try and try and try not to kill off a total army in seconds but each time I did. Started over same thing so it ended on the floor under my pounding foot. Ha,Ha. $30.00. MOS, to me like Siberia it is a lame time waster. S didn't get smashed but MOS did. Worm Blaster, don't buy it!!! Couldn't get through the tutorial! It's a dumb game. Frankenstein. I really wanted to play it but it was so buggy and I tryed so hard but I believe that one I hit with a hammer. That might be all. That behavior isn't to bad considering the effort and money invested in these games. There might be more, just can't think of them right now.

Wow! You guys are making me feel right at home. I have three adventure games loaded, not to mention many arcade and puzzle games. I also have two PCs, one old and a new one. I also have a closet full of games and my game room has other games piled up all over the place. My friends and family think I'm strange. Thank goodness you all understand!

I recall one game that I threw away in the trash as I was so upset with it. You will never guess, but it was Nancy Drew, Secret of Shadow Ranch. I was having problems with some of the action stuff (using the lasso for one) but I managed, but the ending of the game was impossible.

<span class="spoiler_containter"><span class="spoiler_wording">Click Here For A Spoiler</span><span class="spoiler_text">I couldn't get away from the killer. Nancy would hear him calling how close he was getting ("Only one more door!")and it completely distracted me. It was in a maze yet!</span></span>

I was thinking of buying more Nnacy Drew games until that happened and put me off forever. At least, forever so far!

Sierramindy -- Never say forever! lol

Yankee Clipper -- interesting reactions. I've only once considered microwaving a game disk. But then I thought: "What if this ruins my microwave?" Good thing I didn't I think. Now, years later, I might actually replay the game. The memory of frustration has faded...

Pollo Diablo---Shoot! Well, I've been wanting to go live in England for years so maybe I should just pack up hubby and the pets and head over...then get a PAL system. LOL sigh....

Starlite Moon----Well, at one time I had 60+ games but I've gotten rid of alot in the past few months, so my stash isn't as big as it used to be. Now it's aot 35 or so, but not nearly as big (and wonderful!) as 2000! Can I come t your
basement and look in your boxes? You've got my inner game collector drooling! LOL LOL smile
