I have a list of around 12 or so N64 games that I intend to play through one by one. Still going for a complete PAL N64 collection (unboxed) but I'm starting to struggle now, almost everything that does the rounds on eBay I now have, CEX is pretty much my only source now. I do keep an eye on charity shops but most have wised up they can charge loads more putting stuff like this on eBay so that supply has dried up.
How many games you got?

Think I'm up at about 130 now, after picking up an unspellable golf simulator and NBA Live '99 at a retro shop in Grainger Market down in Newcastle last week. Sounds like Nintendonerd might be a little further along than I am. The only things you rarely see on eBay nowadays are the likes of Flying Dragon, or the three Australian PAL exclusives(Snowboard Kids 2, Starcraft and HSV Adventure Racing, which is Beetle Adventure Racing only without the Volkswagens and with the Australian car brand Holden. Fun fact - all the spaceships in Thor: Ragnarok are named after Holden cars).
My next purchase will be a full set of PAL stickers from Etsy, so I can see exactly what I've got and need at a glance. Sadly, saving for a wedding and the missus' visa/citizenship application are sucking all my funds away from what's really important.
I'm around the 150 mark so not that far ahead , the last couple I picked up were the two duke Nukem games, I'm just struggling to justify the expense with some of them though, my most expensive so far was San Francisco Rush 2049, paid 65 on eBay. I've made my own top labels, just get some sticky back gloss labels and draft up a template then I just used Wikipedia to get the game logo and paste onto my template, I know it sounds a massive faff but it doesn't take long to do.
I think I have about 120 N64 carts but probably only 100 different , a few are just spares I picked up cheap and then the odd game I have a pal and a USA or a pal and a Japanese cart.. I would like more but I don't want to pay piles and piles of money for them.

Yeah, this is the issue I'm having now, I've pretty much got all the ones that I actually want to play now, lots of the sports games can be picked up relatively cheaply from CEX which will boost my numbers considerably, however I have no interest in playing them. That just leaves the remaining rare/expensive games, I may give up at this point and move on to Dreamcast collecting
I picked that one up a couple of week's back, hadn't played it before, great game. I did have the N64 back in the day but due to being at school/college I was limited to the bigger releases as birthday prezzies etc.
I just realised that the original Game Boy reaches thirty years old next month. It launched in Japan in April 1989; before arriving during July 1989 in the United States and then September 1990 in the UK / Europe.
