“"Man was born to love, though often he has sought, like Icarus, to fly too high. And far too lonely than he ought, to kiss the sun of east and west, and hold the world at his behest. To hold the terrible power to whom only gods are blessed. But me, I am just a man."
Games are more important than paying for food or paying the bills. The serious collector has made a lifelong investment in the pursuit of having way more games than you do. Ignoring review scores, maintaining few friendships so as not to commit oneself to additional spending on birthdays or holidays, this individual is single-mindedly intent on owning lots and lots of games. A noble pursuit, indeed.
