Fantastic, Sidow! I miss the Lucasarts days, they made some great titles back in the day; Star Wars and non-Star Wars. Closing them down was a big mistake on Disney's part.

Here’s my latest pick up, an unused NES Zapper. This is an early grey one, most people know the later red version.

Thanks to edd_jedi for this awesome modded Saturn, and for tolerating LOTS of basic questions :lol:

That looks really cool. I've been tempted by some of the new games being made for the Mega Drive etc

It was nice to buy a new game, if you know what I mean?

It’s good fun as well!

Not terribly interesting to most people, but I collect new/unused controllers, and finally completed my PS1 set. I picked up the white PSone controller in a random vape shop while visiting family for a tenner :) You can also see here the little known 'Analog Controller' which was around for a very short time before the Dual Shock came out, you can tell the difference by the longer handles and indented analog sticks. It also doesn't rumble.

I think controllers are actually really important elements to a console, it’s the bit you interact with the most and some are so iconic that they’re almost more recognisable that the console.

I started collecting them because they were cheaper and took up less space than consoles. But you're right, to me they are one of the most interesting parts, especially looking at the progression (although funnily enough the PlayStation controller hasn't changed a lot in 25 years!) I also like collecting them because when you buy a used console the controller is usually the most knackered part, so it's nice having a set of fresh ones should I ever want to use them. Although the vintage collector in me says no :lol:

Haha- the arcade stick I managed to get for the Dreamcast was pretty much unused and I didn’t think twice about putting it to work

Now this might not look retro but it is rammed full of retro goodness 8)

Another homebrew pick up, this is a brutal arcade scroller that takes no prisoners. Great fun!
