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.

The story is too old to be commented.

Dude can't be playing video games when he hits 40 have to draw the line somewhere

and something just being creepy is small, and i think Matt crossed it awhile ago

Why so many controllers and a dozen headsets?

The poor wife.

his wife is letting him host some lan matches. What else does some one need a dozen or so controllers for?

sonarus3898d ago (Edited 3898d ago )

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

SixZeroFour3897d ago

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

potenquatro3897d 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.

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

tweaker3898d ago

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

Bnet3433898d ago

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

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.
