No doubt many of us have made the most of Christmas this year and have been expanding our Gaming collections; whether it be actual videogames, collectibles & other merchandise. I too have been building up my own little collection over this last year with Christmas adding a little sweetener to pick up some nice goodies including a couple of Amiibo & some nice games too. So in this post I would like to share my collection with you. It is not the biggest nor the grandest but it is mine and I am proud of it.
My collection now consists of nearly 20 Wii U Titles including, Super Smash Bros, Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors Yoshi’s Woolly World & Splatoon. Nintendo make up a large part of my collection but I also found a fond enjoyment from the Assassin’s Creed series, mainly III & IV because they are both on the Wii U as well. After trying to fight against the urge give in to popular demand, I began collecting Amiibo as well starting with all The Legend Of Zelda figures from the Super Smash Bros series and now I have indulged into the Super Mario series & Splatoon.
My Old School gamer ways also have gotten the better of me and have coerced me into buying the accompanying Game Guides for many titles to aid me better in trying to 100% complete them.I know I could just look up any walkthrough and tricks online nut like I said before, I am an Old School Gamer and enjoy having physical guides to read & research from. It’s not just Game Guides I own, I own other gaming literature as well including Manga and other Videogame inspired novels.
To be fair, I have only been accumulating all things Videogames & Nintendo since last year when I had moved out of the family home and into my own place. I was alway a fan since I was a kid but never really had the opportunity to go Big on collecting videogame memorabilia which is a great shame because I owned many Games consoles including the NES, N64 & Wii (though to be honest I did collect a lot of other things) but while growing up, circumstances arose which meant I had to either sell, give up or leave some of my stuff behind and now I am starting afresh with the Wii U & my ever growing collection.
Well this is the rest of my little collection including some posters from various Gaming Magazines, The Official Nintendo Magazine of Spain and my latest joy, my very own personal Super Smash Bros Poster using the latest Art Work from the Official Nintendo Website depicting the final characters coming to Smash; Bayonetta & Corrin from Fire Emblem Fates.
