Hi, I'm a 30 year old collector from Spain.
My first gaming machine was an Amstrad CPC 6128, which had a good number of games that were produced in our country in what was called the "Golden Age of Spanish Software". After that I also received three new gaming systems, an Atari 2600, an IBM 286 and a Sega Megadrive, which would become my favourite gaming platform along with the original Sony Playstation.
I've collected games for a lot of systems from Nintendo, Sega, Sony and Microsoft, but I recently shifted my collection to PAL console box variants. I've always preferred PAL to NTSC, mainly due to nostalgia, so I try to limit my collection to PAL items, except for some US or Japan exclusives. I've been trying to get information on australia/new zealand console variants (and add a couple of them to my collection in the mean time) but it's been quite difficult.
I also like special, limited and contest-only editions, development hardware and software and promotional variants.
