32 year old Gamer Seriously Obsessed with Microsoft

Matt Writes:

Hi there! My name is Matt, gamertag: Velodyne. I am a 32 year old hardcore Xbox collector. I am married and have a very understanding wife who accepts my gaming addiction. I just wanted to share with you guys some pics of my Xbox 360 and Xbox collection. To date I currently own all of the North American Xbox 360 games (247 games) as well as all of the Xbox Live Arcade games (129). I also own 150 original Xbox games. Various accessories are also shown in the pictures. I am hooked on the Xbox platform and all of the achievements that can be had with owning the games for the platform. I try to play on average about 2-3 hours a night after juggling working as a full time home audio salesman, and looking after my 8 year old step daughter. My wife occasionally plays some of the puzzle games on the system and she can't wait for Ninja Gaiden to come out to watch me play. She loves the original! As a long time fan of your site, I thought you would like to see my collection as I am definitely an obsessed gamer. (Xbox 360)

Line between an collection

Why so many controllers and a dozen headsets?

The poor wife.
gogators  +   2755d ago
A few too many head sets and contorllers, unless
his wife is letting him host some lan matches. What else does some one need a dozen or so controllers for?

Lol that is a real obsession. He has a little shrine going on there...some serious worshiping indeed. Hard to call him a real game collector since he restricts his gaming to only one brand

No wonder Mart, I mean Matt, only has a STEP Daughter. At least the freak has a Bravia.

Buy yourself a Playstation or a Nintendo, obsession is not good.

You can play video games til you die. It's another form of entertainment. Why would you tell someone "oh you're too old, you can't watch movies." What bothers me though is all the money he spent on CRAP games. Pick up a Wii or PS3 and buy the quality games there. Shouldn't have wasted your money paying full price for all those crap games. He'll regret this later

he actually says "I am a 32 year old hardcore Xbox collector"...note the "harcore 'Xbox' collector" so yea, i would say he said it right the first time

as for his head sets and controllers, i would say that he has that many cause he is trying to buy every version of the controllers and headsets, and as for the doubles, id say they came with his purchase of the various 360 editions he has

i gotta say thats a pretty impressive "xbox" collection
potenquatro  +   2754d ago
let me get this straight. a rich guy can have a classic car collection, or a g-string collection from all the girls he has banged(best kind), but as soon as he collects xbox games he's a looser. if alot of poeple here would judge themselves the way they jugde others they'd fail miserably. this is just some hating because it's not a ps3 collection.

@creepa: if you love videogames enuff to comment on a gaming site regularly, i'd like to see u at 40 finding out u still love videogames, and becoming the very evil u preach against.
pwnmaster3000  +   2755d ago
well atleast he has a wife so is not that bad u kno. hes not those 40 year old virgin living with there mom still, but sooner or later he needs to drop the games

He shouldn't have to drop the games. Why would he? If that's what he loves, why stop?

Exactly, I'll keep playing video games till' I die.

I know a 60yr old guy that builds computers, and plays racing and flying games.
There saw a pic of a 45 year old lady on Live the other day, she still looked gof for 5 kids and 3 grandkids. My mom is 57 and she play's the hell out of Final Fantasy, Warcraft, and Fable.

That is freaking pathetic. Just don't buy some of the crap games and you'd have a lot more good stuff.

I applaud Matt's contribution to making the Xbox 360 the premier choice for the ultimate high definition home entertainment experience. With all those AAA titles and award winning peripherals, Matt is undoubtedly in gaming bliss with his enviable selection of Xbox and Xbox 360 products.

Yeah I wonder
how many boxes he's lost to failure having all the games.

I only had 8 or 9 games and got RROD twice.

Maybe he doesn't really play the games...they're just for show?
macalatus  +   2755d ago
Geez...I wonder if his wife looks just like Bill Gates. ;)
Creepa at GameManx  +   2755d ago

so THATS why the attach rate on Xbox is so high.

i applaud the guys enthusiasm, but come on? 247 games? a dozen controllers? how many headsets does one man need?

You sony guys need someone like this to up your attach rate! Maybe nazsim or shadow hearts has a secret playstation bunker.

He must have bought some godawful games though. Some games dont deserve to be in your collection lol.
Bathyj  +   2755d ago
Theres no way he could have even played all those games more than a little bit each, and 2/3's of them are crap, talk about achievement whore.

How can you get obsessed with a particular brand? Weird stuff.. He's missing out on a lot of good stuff on other consoles. I mean jeez, at least get a DS or something.

EDIT: Not that i wouldn't mind having his collection lol

I don't know why you guys are giving him a hard time for gaming when he is 40.. nothing wrong with gaming, Im 29, and I wouldn't want to stop gaming just because i am 40.. hell, i am looking forward to the day I retire at 55 so i can game as much as I want without having to worry about work. What else would I do? watch tv, its all media control garbage, movies are generally remakes, rarely is anything actually new. Read about politicians and the corruption of the government? no thanks. play cards?! Last thing in the world I would want to be is a miserable senior not gaming because it is not socially acceptable for someone that age.. the world can take its stereotypes an shove em.. what would I care I would be old!

I mean sure my kids will come first, and sex is nice now but when your "over the hill" you sorta loose interest..

yup.. I would not want to stop gamin.. not ever, think of how much games progressed over the past 20 years.. could you imagine what they'd be like in 20 more.. why on earth would you want to stop??

of course buying an entire collection of a console is a little strange.. who are we to judge though if a person has a passion for something.. I say more power to him, at least he isn't a bible extremist or even a trekie.
