but then again , how many times have you come across such vast collections so from my own pov I'm not your average "collector" since I only focus on one thing.
completist nazis like myself are still fairly uncommon in collectorsland (and I don't mean that as a showoff, but as a hard fact), as most folks only want to spend their money on "good" games; most folks just buy the popular games for a console & thats it. its also a very expensive hobby & lets not forget I'm prolly about 10 years older than most folks here so I'm supposed to make a bit more as well
also lets not forget that I don't own a current gen console nor do I own a car, so I can spend every euro (well, almost; I'm also a heavy drinker ) I make on a single console. most retro guys have 4 to 6 consoles to spend their money (I also have a saturn, NGPC & DS, but I hardly ever buy anything for those anymore, so they really don't count) on so their collection just grows a bit slower & they're usually a bit more selective what they buy
