A Video Game Collection

My humble ode to the history of video gaming.

Welcome!

Welcome to my video game collection web site!  I created this site to show off my growing collection of classic (and modern) systems and games.  These are things that need to be preserved, so consider this my own little virtual museum.

If you’ve been here before, then you might notice some big changes. Gone is the bright yellow background, the ugly arial font, the squished-together, tiny text.  In its place is this pleasant, unobtrusive WordPress theme.

But I didn’t make this change strictly for cosmetic reasons. I did it for what we in the web industry un-ironically call the “back end”.  Running WordPress instead of a bunch of Dreamweaver templates will make it a lot easier for me to customize and update.  It also means you guys can now comment!

So this is now a work in progress, whereas before it was more of a static site.  Watch for further updates as time goes on.  Some projects for the near future include improvements to the nav (an expandable hierarchy of posts would be nice over there on the left), turning off the date display for posts (it’s really kind of meaningless for this site) and maybe some adjustments to the fonts and colors.  I also have some pages to add – pages for my Commodore Amiga and PlayStation 3, which I’ve purchased since my last update.

I also know that a lot of my current posts are out of date – stuff’s happened in the past few years, so I need to update them.  I’ll be doing that hopefully over the next couple weeks.

So feel free to read through what I’ve got so far by using the nav to the left (such as it is).  But check back soon for even more additions and updates.

    Awesome site! Great pictures and information. It’s always interesting to hear other peoples’ stories about their video games. Keep us updated!

    Should be fixed now. Somehow the permalink database got corrupted.
