‘Why Collectors Collect’ – Written by a Video Game Collector

I love video games. Most people my age do, too, but it was a huge passion of mine growing up and continues still today. Someone asked me why I had so many old video game systems and games for them when all of these newer systems. The easy answer is, "because it's my collection," but why have a collection? Do I really get use out of all of my video game stuff I've collected over the years. I play them sometimes, but of course I don't play every game I have every day.

I had to think about it for a moment and dive deep into my soul to find the real reason I collect what I collect.

My answers may be the same for others who collect other items. Here are a few reasons why collectors collect.

Man Scared of Roller Coasters Rides a Virtual One in Hilarious Video

The Oculus Rift kind of a 'virtual reality' device you wear on your head so you can only see the video game you're playing and, when you look around in real life, your character matches that movement. There have been some pretty funny videos so far, but this may be my favorite. As a caption said, this guy is afraid of roller coasters so he rides this one on a computer. His reaction is priceless.

Play Super Mario’s ‘Star Theme’ on the Piano [VIDEO]

Two of my biggest passions are video games and playing musical instruments, whether I actually know how to play them or not. Combine them both and you have me attempting to play video game music. Instead of showing you boring videos of me trying to play music from Final Fantasy on the piano, where there are tons already available on the Internet, I'd rather show you how to play these songs so you can impress your friends.

One of the easiest songs you can play is the invincible 'star theme' from Super Mario Bros. Super repetitive and super familiar. Here's how to play it.

As a Stock Holder in Nintendo, I Just Received a Cash Dividend for Eleven Cents

Let me start by saying I know nothing about stocks and bonds and share holdings and all of that. For my birthday this past April my family bought me stock in Nintendo. It came in this giant, framed, gaudy thing that's better compared to those checks they hand you in the Price is Right.

No matter how it's showcased, it turns out to be legit and I even got paid on it!

Someone Made an Atari 2600 Version of Super Mario Bros That Doesn’t Look That Bad

Super Mario Bros is one of the most iconic video games of all time. It's the game that turned Mario into a house-hold name, the music is legendary and video games today still use Super Mario Bros. as their main source of inspiration. It was the game that was included in the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in the mid-80s so it just missed the opportunity to be on the Atari 2600.

Leave it to Chris Spry to create his own version of Super Mario Bros on the Atari 2600 and, from the looks of it, it looks pretty decent.

Eight Characters I Want in the New Super Smash Bros Game

New Challenger Approaching!

That's the sign that you're about to face a new character in Super Smash Bros.

One of the funnest parts of the Smash Bros. series is seeing what video game characters will join the party and become unlockable. They're usually from Nintendo games, but there have been others, in the past, from other companies like Sonic the Hedgehog, Solid Snake and the recent announcement of Mega Man joining the party. Although the new game's announcement did have two new characters, more are yet to be announced. Here are nine characters in the Nintendo universe I hope join in the fun in the new Super Smash Bros. game for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
