    New Neo Collector

    Name is Matthew, I have been actively collecting video games for about 5 years and have a collection of about 1500 games for various systems. My primary collection is Xbox and NES stuff and just kinda dabble everywhere else.

    I have the same user tag on nintendoage (where I am most active) and DP, just incase some of you might recognize me from there.

    I have always feared getting into neo collecting due to the price difference and wanted a cabinet but was always fearful of the maintnance and transportation of one. I bit the bullett about 2 weeks ago and bought one locally with 8 games, here is a pic of the cabinet:



    So far not so bad on the prices of stuff, I am at 17 games, a 4 slot mvs, and a bunch of paper work/boxes ect. and in it all for about $1G.

    Hope to make some new friends here and discuss neo related stuff, this has always been my goal as a collector, but never thought I was worthy of joining the forum until I owned something true to the community.

    Matthew

    You are off to an excellent start, dear friend. (better than I am, anyways )

    Welcome to the glorious forums of NG.com!
    Games are discarded culture…

    A system's specs have nothing to do with what's needed for a person to enjoy a game.

    Welcome to the board.
    That's a really nice cab and it's DEDICATED!! Very important thing for newcomers to do is seek out a dedicated cab as it will retain it's value. I'd state that you are off to a really good start.

    that's a problem?
    you've got some really good games already and you probably won't be able to beat viewpoint anytime soon. enjoy what you've got. there are only about 150 different mvs games anyway.

    Welcome to the forums.

    That cab looks to be in very good shape, sweet find.

    I'm new here myself (still waiting for my 'Hello World') to get posted in the Welcome section.

    Congrats on the other systems as well. I've got a 6foot table in the basement full of systems and various games for each. The NeoGeo is arriving soon, so I might need a larger table

    So far, all the people I've talked to are very friendly/helpful. I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay here!

    Welcome! Your cabinet looks great!

    I'm a new cabinet owner, too. I just got done replacing the control panel overlay on mine. I've had just as much fun playing around with the cabinet as I have playing games!

    Anyway--see ya around!

    haha. i've said that many times. if you see something you want, you'll find a way to get it. I dropped nearly $3k when I started collecting Neo stuff. Luckily, I have recouped $2k and kept a few valuable games and a system.

    Yeah, it seems that for I have been paying for my stuff, it's a pretty sound investment, should be able to get my money back if I ever need too, but no plans to ever sell this stuff, only reason I have touched my Xbox 360 since I got this cabinet is to watch netflix. Best game system I have bought in a long time.

    That's a beautiful cabinet! I was thinking of getting into that instead of AES but too late now!

    Hi Guys!

    Firstly I just want to say a big hello to everyone on the forums

    I am also a new to the ways of the neo geo and am just starting to attempt to build a collection of Japanese AES games. I was just wondering if anyone would be kind enough to point me in the direction of the best place to get my hands on collection quality games? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Yeah, nice cab - nice setup in general. I'm quite new to the NG scene, well the carts part anyways. Been playing all the ported games forever and yeah, same deal - the cost, but bit the same bullet and gonna go for all legit.

    Cab looks great! I just joined the forums after picking up a 6-slot myself. Will have to post a proper introduction when allowed in my own thread.

    Keep building that collection of games - looks like you're off to a great start. My cab came with 18 MVS carts (all pretty common).

    I'll have to check you out on nintendoage. I'm coming in from racketboy myself. Anyways good luck and enjoy.

    Dang that's a clean 4-slot! Congrats on the pickup! And you're doing much better at getting the most bang for your buck then I am. $1G? I'm up to 800 now and I only got 10 games plus a 4-slot
