Someone's massive games collection

This guy has loooots of games. Apparently they're all PC games too. (Culture, PC)

+bubbles for that mmmkay. :D
mikepmcc  +   1523d ago
I'm glad someone else saw this, it's mostly stuff you pick up for $5 at Staples or something. Not impressive at all.
Geralt  +   1523d ago
The best thing about this = completely backwards compatible!

Have to say, I'm kinda jealous.
I_find_it_funny  +   1523d ago
Yea right I got a few games I can't run for s**t on my Windows 7.
hassi94  +   1523d ago
Well then you don't know much about PCs and how to fiddle around with settings. I haven't found a single game (even those over 10 years old) I can't get to work with Windows 7 after some messing around.
Mmmkay  +   1523d ago
yeah.. all you need is a dos computer , a win 95 computer
another one running 2000/xp/vista
and another one with win7

none of my games work anymore.
consoles ftw.
The Great Melon  +   1523d ago
Just have a boot screen with all your favorite OSes. Not that hard to play old stuff on the PC.

il-mouzer  +   1523d ago

Dnied  +   1523d ago
I wonder how much store credit he'd get if he traded it all in at gamestop xD
BeaArthur  +   1523d ago
$300.
Psfan999  +   1523d ago
Probably less.
Motorola  +   1523d ago

TheBand1t  +   1523d ago
None, since I don't think Gamestop accepts PC games for tradein.
karl  +   1523d ago

is that a basement?
PS360_37  +   1523d ago
its probably his mom's basement... :)
LOLconsoles  +   1523d ago
Behold! proof that PC gaming has the largest library of games ever! consoles barely have half this amount!
PS360_37  +   1523d ago
which obviously means that the PC is better...

/s

Edit: You don't skip any opportunity to tell everyone that you think PC is better, do you?

PS1 alone has 2409 games.

I think it looks like more than there is because of the old big boxes.
Mmmkay  +   1523d ago
looks like 500-600 max....

collection starts with doom2 from 1994 though, so he's missing quite a lot i must say.

however at the troll above, nobody ever said pc had few games. we played pc games before you were born, and now we prefer the couch and a big tv, hence console.
The Great Melon  +   1523d ago
The more I look at that picture I realize that there aren't that many games there. Yeah he has more than most, but computer game boxes are about the size of 3 console game cases. I probably own more games across all the systems then him. Then again I also see he has a PS3 and Xbox 360, so he probably has plenty more non-pc games not shown.
TheHater  +   1523d ago
read the picture description. He/She said there was over 600 games in that picture and was taken in 2008

I used to have a large PC games collection but with DOS and earlier DirectX games, most aren't compatible with today's Windows, video and sound hardware. Even with different types of DOS emulators, most of the DOS games will not run properly or very unstable. With earlier DirectX 3 through 6 Windows games, they are rarely compatible.

I used to set up multiple older PC hardware that worked with old video drivers which were semi compatible with old Windows games. And eventually gave up because I spent more time tweaking the Windows, drivers and the games just to play them.

That's the problem playing PC games. Play them quickly and don't expect most of them to be compatible after a few years with new OS, drivers and hardware.

With the DRM activation now required for PC games, good luck trying to activate the PC games in a few years even they maybe compatible. (Unless you have the pirated version).

Anyone who says they have no problem running old PC games with new OS, driver or hardware, they haven't played enough really old PC games from the 80s and 90s.

I think you're overstating the problem with PC games these days. Agree about running older games on newer systems, but the lifespan of a PC game is MUCH longer than just a few years.

I still play games like Deus Ex and the original GTA fine on Vista 64, and with how slowly the Windows platform is evolving, I would expect to be able to play these games for a long time to come.

As for the DRM bit, most companies relax their DRM requirements once a game has been out for a year or so, voiding the need for activation, install limits, disc checks etc.
Nihilism  +   1523d ago
That's cool, but I'm Mr anti clutter, if a game gets to the point where it is no longer compatible...or like diablo 2...is just no longer fun. I throw them in the bin, if I even buy a new game I don't like I give it away straight away, same with CD's I don't want junk titles filling up shelves when some less fortunate sap could be actually enjoying them.

ian72  +   1523d ago
That is lots of games. I thought I had lots, 76 PS3 blu-rays and about 20 PC discs. I have spent over £2,000 just on PS3 games, wonder how much this guy has spent on his games.
JJFNIGHTS80  +   1523d ago
This guy is amazing. I BOW DOWN ALL MIGHTY PC GAMES. I'm sure he have everything from DOOM, Duke Nukem, Prince of Persia MS DOS version I MEAN EVERYTHING. When I get a bigger place that's what I'm going to do with my collection. room so damn small can't even find a new place for it.
MRMagoo123  +   1523d ago
most of the games there i havent even heard of before i suspect most where $5 bargain games and stuff by the looks of it, it would be a lot less impressive if he put them in a cd case tho cos those old pc game boxes are huge and make it seem more. If i put all my pc games in huge boxes they would take alot of space too.

I wonder if his mum complains about all those games when she comes down to the basement.

I do not understand how this could be a "top" story.
Spenok  +   1522d ago
I can potentially top it. If i knew how many games were in there. I currently have 909 games total across all systems.
