Videos of my Main Videogame and Computer Collection Storage Areas

Bill Loguidice's picture

As mentioned in the Panoramas of my Main Videogame and Computer Collection Storage Areas, I decided to also take video. Below are those videos, in obnoxious 1080p hi-def glory. The first video is just over 17 minutes long, and the second video is almost 15 minutes long. It's basically just me prattling on about this and that and about as dry as the worst of bad museum tours, but it's good to do these things every couple of years to see where everything is at. Hopefully two years from now I'll be even better organized and have leaned the collection out a bit.

Thank you for posting this video

I thoroughly enjoyed these videos. Thank you for taking the time. I have a very small collection, nothing like this. I will pick up some stuff from time to time at tag sales mostly. Especially in Florida when I visit there are a ton of tag sales and I am surprised to find things on the cheap like a Oddyssey 2 in the original box with a bunch of games in the boxes for $25, although it cost me $30 to ship it back to NY. The system currently does not work, but what a deal for the games. Where do you get your stuff from Bill? Do you have a swap list or a wish list. It seems like you have all of it.

Thanks. It's a combination of being the original owner from when I was a kid, to flea markets, to shows, to trades, but mainly auction sites like eBay these days (though I've certainly curbed that and will continue to do so).

As for a swap/sell list, I'm open to selling any duplicates. This is the list of my systems: http://www.billandchristina.com/vgamecomp/systems.htm and this is a list of my boxed computer software (no videogame stuff in there because I didn't catalog it directly yet): http://www.billandchristina.com/vgamecomp/bcompsoft.htm

Wow - you the master!

All hail Bill, he must have the most extensive collection of us all. Perhaps only rivalled by Pete Dorr or Gamester81. WOW I am just flabbergasted here.

Big collection

That's a pretty big collection you got there. And stored in a basement that's clean looks dust free to boot.

Obviously no issues with flooding. No concern about those central air vents sweating in the summer and dripping on your stuff?

Once I collected all the consoles and computers that I always wanted, I stopped collecting.

Very nice! I enjoyed the tour.

Nope, super dry, built right and all that (it even has water channels in the concrete if it did ever happen). The only going concern is the hot water heater. Eventually that will have to go.

Does that tank make my basement look fat?

Tankless water heater, my friend, unlimited hot water for everyone. The F-U-T-U-R-E is now... (and pricey!) Hopefully I do it before the hot water decides to rebel...

*drool*

Not meaning to resurrect an older thread pointlessly, but I've been slowly working my way through all the old Armchair Arcade content, oldest to newest. I just hit this today....

Holy COW. I think I just wet myself.

Bill, I know you don't know me from a hole in the ground, so don't take this the wrong way:

"Can I PLEEEEAASSE come over and sleep in your storage room? Just being around that much retro-cool stuff has GOT to have health benefits."

I repeat: Holy COW.

That is an unbelievable collection. All I've got is my old Vic-20, a TRS-80 model III, and the second-hand IBM-XT+printer+monitor I bought my sister for her college work. (There are a couple of mid-to-late-1990s systems kicking around in various states, but I don't count those.)

Thanks for posting!

Well, if you're ever in the

Well, if you're ever in the area, you're welcome to stop by. I think the only person I've ever had over who could actually appreciate the collection was Matt!

Yeah, seeing Bill's

Yeah, seeing Bill's collection is almost a surreal experience. You go into his house; all normal. Then you go down the stairs, and it's like you slid down a firepole into the friggin' batcave.

I guess it'd be like an Egyptologist going to someone's house and the host is like, "Yeah, and that thing under the books is the Rosetta stone. That gold stuff in the box over there came out of King Tut's tomb." You're like, WHAATT? and suddenly realize that you don't have nearly enough time to even see the "must see" stuff.
