(PICS SOON! LOST DIGITAL CAM!)

Around where I live, it's hard to find a gamer that doesn't know anything outside of football and first-person-shooting genre type games or Sony fans. Nintendo and even, let alone, true SEGA fans are even more difficult to find.

I was only about 11 years old when the Dreamcast came out and grew up in a poor family. Despite my interest and insane craze for the Dreamcast, I was declined to being stuck with N64 and Star Fox. As soon as I got into the business world and my own income, I attacked what I always wanted to do... get my hands on a good Dreamcast collection with Japanese titles and rare controllers - maybe even a rare system or two to play on my VGA box.

After 2003, it was hard to get your hands on anything that was SEGA related without using Ebay or Play-Asia. I've been trying to get my collection just how I wanted it: nearly-complete shooter collection, a wide range of all the rare titles, all the classic must-haves, tons of Shenmue games to show my passion for the series (I have a Shenmue + Dragon tattoo going down my right fore-arm. (PIC BELOW!)

I even did what I never thought I'd do: I got my hands on nearly every highly appreciated and highly rated Dreamcast game, played them all, sold the ones I didn't have care for, and kept the better ones. I'll even post pictures of what I just previously shared with the collector community.

As for now, like I stated, I typed this out then lost the camera to another family member. I'll post what I got though and what I've sold. Smile

My Shenmue Tattoo!!! (Shenmue in Japanese letters). If you know the language, don't ask what the extra dash is about. It's being worked into a future add-on to the dragon's body. I get it done in sessions since the guy lives out of state.

I have all sorts of Shenmue books and other extras. Just not sure where they are in my closet boxes. I love the series.

As for random things... I'm sure there's about 15 different controllers I have that I don't feel like digging out and I have all volumes of the Japanese Dreamcast demo's from the magazines. Complete collection. I have like 3 different boot discs and passports and some weird extra port disc.

My 2 rare systems? I have a blue hello kitty system with complete set that I hook up to my VGA box and 21 inch widescreen monitor and 8-10 inch subwoofer with surround sound. I also have a Treamcast that I'm debating over whether or not I should sell. The picture quality bothers me.

YOU ARE MISSING A LOT!!!

... Okay, here is what I've sold


Boring.

Factory Sealed. Felt selfish owning it.

Why finish the series if I can't read Japanese?

See above.

Again, felt selfish owning 2 copies.

Felt selfish owning multiple copies.

BORING!!! Oh well. The buyer did it for system link (2 copies of some)

Factory sealed. Selfishness and greed since I was offered $150 for it.

Japaneseeeeee.

Rare but glitchy and not fuuuun.

Any rares?

Once again, owning regular and limited is selfish. Share the rare stuff.

See above but replace "edition" with "format".

I think that was complete. Bleh, hated the random clicking.

That was the BEAST collection that I sold since I'm NOT a 2D fighter fan.

I also sold Virtua On as a complete collection, too. Mech-games are not my style. I had 2 copies of the game with spine cards, 2 boxed twin stick controllers, and a new-in-box official SEGA product Dreamcast system link. I got like $300 for it. Better than keeping it and not playing it.

I probably have a lot more to brag about but I'm tired. I'll update this topic later if it gets anymore attention.

shenmue has a deep place in my heart. ill always support it. i'm thinking of getting a phoenix on my body somewhere. then maybe a demand for shenmue 3 lol someone suggested i tattoo a fake release date for it and send a picture of it to the creator. ^_^
