What can I say, some of us are just masochists ...
I think there is some level of appeal to actually getting your hands on games that you never even saw in the real world when you were a kid ... so it's one step beyond nostalgia, it's almost more like trying to prove a myth.
At least that's part of what drives my TG and Neo Geo collections ...
That, and some day I'll be able to sell them for enough for a down payment on a house ... that will have space for all the games that I sold to buy it. It's a real gift of the magi situation I'm backing myself into here.
