Dazcooke Presents…My Gaming Collection In Pictures

Recently, after far too many years without one, I acquired a digital camera. Now I find myself free to record the world as I see it through my eyes; what better way to put it to use then to show off my humble games collection? Below I’ve posted a few pictures of the games that I own, as well as a few bits and bobs of gaming memorabilia. I’m far from a professional photographer, so apologies that some images have come out pretty badly.

I also intend to take some photos of my small collection of gaming magazines at some point in the future. Hope you enjoy a quick look at my gaming history!

The majority of my games in one neat collection...you might also note I'm a fan of the Discworld novels, Formula One and James Bond

I had many other Official Playstation Magazine demo discs, but in a fit of madness I threw some away a few years ago before entering university. I heavily regret the decision as I now can’t play Total Soccer, but I now have a long term goal to build up a back collection of the rarer demos discs.

Nintendo 64 Collection

My N64 Collection

My small Nintendo 64 collection was gifted to me by a friend two years ago. I have Goldeneye 007, Diddy Kong Racing, The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, F-Zero X and WWF No Mercy.

PC Collection

My PC Collection

Most of my PC games are on Steam, but I have two in disc format – Sim City 4 and Sid Meier’s Civilization IV.

Handheld Collection

My Handheld Collection

My handheld collection is dominated by Pokemon. I have Pokemon Gold, Emerald, and Black 2. My Nintendo DS is housed inside a protective 3DS case given to me for free by the local GAME store one day.

Card Games

I thought when I was young I would keep my Pokemon cards safe, so that they would be worth something in the future. Turns out, no-one wants Energy Cards anymore

Remember Digimon? Of course you do! I have a few cards, including the Agumon, Crabmon and wonderfully named HerculesKabuterimon on display

I have a few Yu-Gi-Oh cards kicking around as well - never played the card game, but found the idea of a Penguin Soldier amusing

Memorabilia

Got this for free from my local GAME - a early display case for Ocarina Of Time on the 3DS. I think it looks better than the final boxart personally

This was a joint Christmas present from my friends this year - the always badass Auron from Final Fantasy X. He usually sits on my workdesk

The Consoles

My console collection

Last, but certainly not least, the consoles I own. I’m sure you know, but from left to right they are the Sony Playstation, the Nintendo 64, the Sony Playstation 2, the Nintendo Gamecube (which I don’t actually own anything for amusingly), the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Nintendo DS. Apart from the Playstation which I’m pretty sure is dead, they all work fine.
