16 times two this year here!

Most in our thirties (doube 16s) still pining over an RPG from our childhoods. You know, some terrible people may call us nerds...
Those terrible people probably don't even have multiple bookcases filled with video games. :P

Books, video games, manga, DVDs, etc. I've got multiple walls of bookcases.

Thanks! *gets streamed*

Bookcases rock! I don't know if there is a more useful piece of furniture. LOL

By the way Mauron, when is your birthday? I ask because mine is on December 12th.

I just noticed that someone said your birthday wasn't long ago so I was curious. Made me wonder if we were possible birthday twins (even though it's already been almost 2 months since my birthday! LOL) Anyway, I hope you had a great day! Btw, I LOVE your avatar photo!

Did you get the "do you get fewer presents because your birthday is so close to Christmas" question a lot?

It's an excellent avatar.

Yeah I turn the big 4-0 this year!!  :o I don't want to. ha ha!!

Did that a few years ago. You guys are all making me feel old again.

On bookcases: scary quantities of those here. Many of them stacked three deep with SF&F novels.  And I'm running out of space again, sigh. The video games are crammed onto a mere two shelves.

I actually had to downsize my bookshelves over the past few years. Sold all of my old game systems and games that I had been holding onto -- NES, my two SNES, PS2, and all the games. I've since backed them up digitally to play via emulator.

I made a pretty penny on eBay. I had a few rare RPG items!

I also had to sell most of my player's guides. I did keep the Chrono Cross one, though!

As PS3 and Wii emulation are reaching high reliability, I'll be doing the same for those two systems.

I've repurchased too many of the games I've sold in the past to do it again.

Yeeeeees and I'd had boyfriends try and do that to me too. However, if I want something bigger, like, I don't know, a video game system or something (LOL) I use it as a bargaining chip. Ha ha!

Also, I'm sorry for making you feel old Alfador. I don't want to do that to anyone! I was starting to think that I was the oldest one here!  :o
