The Things Remembered

The Things Remembered

Hey, internet.  For anyone who has been following me, you probably know that I’ve recently had a house fire that took all my stuff with it.  It sucks, but thankfully my wife and kids are fine, and everything else can eventually be replaced.  I say “eventually” because I lost A LOT of stuff.  I’m a hoarder collector of all things that I’m interested in: magazines, DVDs, and video games.  Obviously, being the avid collector that I am, having everything wiped out is very… sobering.

I thought for a very long time before I finished that last sentence.  I think “sobering” is really the only appropriate thing I could say about how I feel.  At first I was devastated, but, as time passed (it’s been about a month), I started to realize how pointless my “stuff” really is.  I wish that I still had them, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be fine without them.

And, really, do I wanna associate myself with this?

That’s not to say I’m done collecting.  I still have all my Turbo GraFX/PC Engine games, and I plan of finishing that collection someday, but I’m not too worried about everything else I’ve lost.  I do want to get back my Simpsons, Looney Tunes, and MST3K collections, but I think I’m done with the DS, PSP and 3DS collections.  I plan on getting back the games that I know I will play again and leave it at that.

Anyway, my wife and I have been working on the list of things that we lost during the fire.  We’re to give this list to the insurance company so we can get reimbursed.  We’ve been putting it off, but it’s finally done.  I wanted to share with you all the most important game-related things I lost.  I’m just going to present it as a numbered list for you to peruse at your leisure.  I’m putting my DS collection last because it was my largest.  I’ve been collecting DS games since it was released back in 2004.  The collection is a result of a combination of me buying games and not trading them in and finding them dirt cheap at Game Stop.  I’m really going to miss that collection, but I just don’t want to spend the time, effort, or money to get them all back because, honestly, I’m not going to play a great majority of them.  All I have now is Pokemon Conquest because I bought it a few days after the fire.

It’s far less stupid than it looks.

I also want to say, though my DS collection is gone, I still intend to do what I had planned on doing after the DS’s demise: Give it a proper send off with some Top Ten Lists!  Since publishers and developers are still creating new DS games, I haven’t done it yet.  But, considering my DS collection died first, I might as well do it.  So, in the coming weeks, I plan on posting 5 Top Ten Lists: Top Ten DS Games I Wish I Played, Top Ten Disappointing DS Games, Top Ten DS Gems, Top Ten Essential DS Games, and my Top Ten DS Games.  If some of those lists sound redundant, don’t worry; it’ll make sense once their done.  I promise.

One last note: I obviously couldn’t remember all my DS games, so I went to Wikipedia for help.  Even with its help, I’m still a little over 100 games short.  I remember celebrating the 500 game milestone a few months ago.  Oh, well.  Not like I have them anymore.  Feel free to ask if I had a certain game in the comments if you like.  There were really very few games I had that weren’t at least pretty good, and I tried to stay away from shovelware and any game whose title ended with a “z.”  Also, every game I owned was complete.  I never purchased a game without the box, cover art, manual, game, and any additional things (some Atlus titles came with an outer box and a soundtrack or artbook.  I even had all those).  So, please, have a gander at the things I lost.  And to all the DS fans out there: Stay tuned!  I guarantee you’ll enjoy my lists.
