• magisterrex Retro Games


    I've been gaming since the days of Pong and still own a working Atari 2600. I tend to ramble on about retro games, whether they be board games, video games or PC games. Sometimes I digress. Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use. Or so I think. If you're into classic old school gaming, this blog is for you!

ReBlog: System Rarity Guide from Australian Retro Gamer

Collecting ‘rare’ retro gaming systems can be heaps of fun, but you need to have a rough idea how sought after a retro gaming system is. Usually, the principle works like this – the rarer the system is, the more it will cost. This guide is exactly that, a guide, or a companion to assist you in your research of older gaming machines. Happy hunting !

Any guide that attempts to quantify the obsession that is retrogame collecting is bound to incite some measure of controversy. The Australian Retro Gamer explained on Twitter (@ausretrogamer), “It was based on rareness in my hunt / research in the past 18 months. A snapshot in time if you will.

I think it is a marvelous snapshot, and well worth reading and commenting on. You can read the rest of this guide at his blog, located here: http://www.ausretrogamer.com/retro-gaming-system-rarity-guide
