Thought about all that and I'm ready to get rid of it all. PS3 is the only thing that I'm considering keeping so that I can still play some newer games, I've paid for PS+, and online is free. (not trying to sound like a Sonymite)

I fully expect to miss some of these games. All the NES ones are games that I purchased with my dad as a kid. He would take me 1-2 times a month to Toys R Us to get a new game and I remember getting those little tickets and running up to the front so they could get the game from their inventory. They even have my last name written in magic marker on the back like most people did back in those days. Ah memories, thats all they are. I'll still have those good times in my mind when these games are gone.

Just keep them man, and then let your kids enjoy them.

Before you do anything though, make sure you really think it over.

My total housing expenses make up about 30% of my monthly take-home pay. Admittedly, it's a little high (I was aiming for around 25%) but we got a great deal on a nice home and I couldn't turn down a 3.25% interest rate + money from the builder towards the closing costs...they're practically paying me to buy the house.

When I sold all my games I went through some withdrawals at first, but the temptation faded. It's gets easier the less that you do it. Plus, I had a bunch of other crap to occupy my time. At least you'll still have your PS3 though.

They are just things.

I'll never forget when my pops beat me for the first time in Mortal Kombat by just putting the controller on the floor and pounding away at it randomly. I freaked out and threw the game through the wall.

Or the time when I beat him for the first time in like 2-3 years of playing Super Bases Loaded.

Just memories, I can't recreate those times by keeping the game or the systems.

But that collection is huge.

Sometimes you just gotta move on though and like you said, you will always have the memories.

Good luck

Interest rates are crazy low. At some point they will have to sky rocket, the question is when will this happen. The other major thing I do is pay my mortgage weekly, not monthly. This should cut 8 years off my loan by paying the principle quicker. :)

For the record I don't regret selling my collection. It was just sitting there anyway.

Interest rates will eventually rise, but I don't know when. I just struck while the iron was hot (mine's a 30 year fixed).

You don't regret selling your collection of what? Video games?

I got a 30 year fixed, I just signed up for Wells Fargo weekly payment schedule.

Yeah, my collection of video games. I posted about it a few pages ago. I had 750+ games and 10+ consoles. Nothing more than dust collectors. Especially now that most classic games have been re-released digitally. I may not have a NES/SNES/N64, but I still have every home console Zelda release. :)

You need to sell all those games and systems now. How much is gaming contributing to your credit card debt???

Wow. That's a huge collection. I only had my Xbox 360 and, like, 10 games or so. I actually still have a few for sale.

'Most people that I know that are in debt wouldn't say that their lives are "immeasurably more enjoyable", quite the contrary rather.'

than if they never borrowed a single cent their whole lives? Not likely.

I started gaming when I was 5, now I am 32, my collection just got far too large. I now own 4 consoles with 180 games. Which is still more than I can play. But still I did cut back boats loads. I am also far more picky about what games I will buy for my consoles. I used to just buy far too many games. :)

What do you include in that? Are you including mortgage, taxes, and insurance - or are you also including maintenance, utilities, etc.?

Eggman, PhD says:
I started gaming around age 8 and I'll be 28 in March. I've owned multiple consoles over the years, but never as many games as you have. That's impressive.

30% includes mortgage, taxes, insurance, PMI, and utilities.

Wow that isn't bad at all. I was at 20% with mortgage, taxes and insurance. I didn't include ultilites, which can be high in the summer. :)

I'm going to try and keep costs down this summer but it gets really, really hot here, as in day after day of 100+ so it'll be a challenge for sure.
