2012: The great game inventory

I’ve mentioned this before, but I have a ridiculous video game collection. It is not as ridiculous as some out there, but for two people living in a smallish apartment, owning 30+ consoles and over 500 games is..excessive.

We decorate with video games. I like being able to see and appreciate what we collect rather than relegating it to a box in a storage room. My collection is a living, shifting, and tangible thing.

But, every year it also needs tending.

Today Cameron and I will be updating our Google spreadsheet for our game collection, console serial numbers, and list of digital releases. Since we have so much, it’s easy to forget what we own, which is why we had duplicate Color Dreams games. Or, perhaps I’m just terrible at remembering.

I live in constant fear that our apartment will be broken into. Our collection is more quality than quantity, and it would be so easy to turn a profit off of what we own. Having a running list of what we own is never a bad idea.

If you’re interested to see what we have, I will happily post requested items in a future playlist.

    Ugh – I need to do something like that myself. My collection has gotten frustratingly disorganized of late :/

  2. I once lived with a crap roommate, and between us we had a game collection of well over 1500 titles. I guess we talked about it on the net and somebody broke into our place. Do not post said spreadsheet when you’re done. I have no idea how people found our place, but they did.
