Evolution of the collector

We’ve mentioned the Game Quest Direct reprints and spoke to a passionate collector who is against them. Now we have another take on the hobby of video game collecting from Racketboy. He speaks about the intrigue of becoming a collector and later on about why video games shouldn’t be an investment. It isn’t just the reprints that are going to bring down the value. Emulation, remakes, and maybe Wii’s virtual console all put a dent into a video game based college fund.
