Like myself, I know many of you have rather large collections of retro games. Have you ever gone to play one of them and found out it’s not the game you remember buying?
That happened to me tonight!
I thought this could be a general thread of discussion about the condition of our games, but man, I was just floored by my own bad memory.
My copy of Atomic Runner on Sega Genesis (Chelnov in Japan I think) is not the one I bought new way back when. It’s a former rental, which means at some point I sold the first one and then reacquired it later. What a dope! If you ever needed a reminder not to sell your games unless the situation is dire, well, there you go.
That leads me to the condition… which is actually quite good despite being a rental, but of course it has those unremovable video store stickers on the cart and the manual. Video 2000 in Louisiana to be exact. The case has some masking tape crap on the back I never removed too.
Anyway, before you’re 47 like me, take a swing through your collection again and make sure it’s everything you remember it to be.
