“I am the self-proclaimed ULTIMATE fan of the Final Fantasy series. I own all of them (thank you eBay!!!)except XI, but I probably won't get it anyway because it costs monthly to play and I don't have much money. Now that I own them, I need to beat them all. So far I've beaten I, III, IV, V, VII, IX, X, and XII. I own a NES, a Sega Genesis, a N64, a PS1, a GBC, a GBA, a NGC, a PS2, an Xbox, a PSP, a NDS, a PS3, a Xbox 360, and a Wii.
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.
