they definitely make some of the best in the industry. I'm going to cover that in the next part, regarding why going third-party would be awful!

OMG! I beat......

I would die a happy man if Sony started seeking out Dreamcast games for the PS Store! Shenmue, Skies of Arcadia, Typing of the Dead (drools), and so many others! Most underrated console ever!

and so I finally got a PS4...

So far, I dig it! I just finished Last of Us: Remastered and now I'm struggling my way through Bloodborne.

If I could change anything, it'd be the PS Store. I can deal with the lack of backwards compatibility, but I wish that there were more classics to be had. I'd love something along the lines of TMNT: The Arcade, X-Men, Double Dragon, etc. The store just seems so.....empty! Am I missing something?

Thanks, buddy! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I vividly remember that very same Playstation demo disc! That's also how I played Jumping Flash, along with Xtreme Sports, and a few others. I guess that Sears, once upon a time, was just the happening place when it came to gaming. Ha!

Thank you, good sir! It means a lot! I hope that you have found a big part of the best of yourself along the way. We are lucky, and I try to not take that for granted. Thanks for reading!

If the Shenmue III kickstarter is effective, I'll feel like my PS4 purchase was justified. I'm honestly flabbergasted that Sega hasn't jumped on the free publicity with a Shemmue 1 and 2 HD announcement! I can't make a judgement call on PS4, since the only two games I've played are last gem freebies that came with the console (GTA 5 and The Last of Us Remaster). Bloodborne is on my list, as is Infamous Second Son (living so close to Seattle, I'd love to see how well the game captured the city). 

I must admit that that I almost want an Xbox One, if only for the amazing-looking Rare Replay! So many classics on one disc!

Ha! No, it didn't make the cut. I actually gave my copy of that game away as a gag Christmas gift a few years ago. a bunch of friends and I had a gift exchange, and I gave each friend a good retro game and a bad one. One Jeremey Stevig was the lucky recipient of Shaq Fu.

No, not stalking. I just know that you go through phases of severe depression, and you oftentimes feel alone. I would leave messages when you were at your lowest. I consider it more keeping watch over my fellow man.

Nope, I actually sold off about 85% of all my collection. I kept my PS3, Wii, Wii U, and 3DS. I kept only the games that I couldn't stand parting with. There's a long story attached to all of this, but I'll do my best to shorten it:

In October of 2012, my now ex-wife and I separated. For a moment, while the divorce was pending, I moved in with my parents. I felt low, like I had failed in every aspect of my life. I also started drinking, and feeling sorry for myself. It wasn't until January that I started finding happiness again. It was time to let her go. I then remembered my original dream of moving to Seattle....but I didn't have the money to fund such a trip....

or did I?

I had a little goldmine occupying space on two sroseate book cases. I spent that summer selling off most of my collection on eBay. I turned in a three week notice at my job of eight years, where I cashed in my 401k (to the tune of $8,800), and my parents gave me a one-time gift of $2,000. The games themselves put a cool $3,400 in my pocket. If I had had more time, I'm pretty sure I could have gotten $1,000 more, but I was on a time budget. My girlfriend found out that she was pregnant in July of that year, and I was elated! Part of the reason my ex and I split up is because I desperately wanted kids. 

Anyway, we left Illinois for Seattle (Federal Way, actually) in September of that year. We couldn't leave much later because snow typically comes to the mountains early, rendering them undrivable. I got a job two weeks later, Ava Grace was born the following March, and we've been here since. I have purchased a few video game-related things since. I rebought my Vita, and I picked up a PS4. Other than that, I like my pared-down collection.
