Post your collections.

Edit: Original question answered.

I got the urge to go through and try to remember all the games I have bought or have been given as a gift over the years and wow that proved to be quite the task. I am about 3/4 of the way through my list, but I figured I would post it any way. So...here is mine. Lets see yours!


Gotta love those trips down memory lane.

I didn't give you a link to my list, just the "my collection" link, so if you're signed in as you, your "my" is yours, not mine :P

I half-way posted a warning to you that that link that DVDChris gave you was the same one I did earlier. It is just a link to "your collection".

haha, no. I understand that link. I mean other people in general. Like I was on the actual forums over there and went to a link of someones collection and it just took me to that same screen.

The format to link to someone else's collection is like this:
http://users.ign.com/collection/pinata242

It's possible the links you're clicking on were created by people that don't know what they're doing, only adding to your confusion.

Is there a site besides IGN that can do this? I kind of hate IGN.

IGN was the best for me because they have all the different editions of each game. Some games have many different versions with the GOTY, Collector's, Gold Edition's etc and IGN usually has them all. I tried guzzlefish for a while, I remember there was a few months they didn't even have Mario Kart DD on the list. I think 1up has a tracker too.

yeah 1up has a tracker that breaks it down by what system the game was on instead of just by alpha. order.

The 1up one seems to be simple and fast but lacks anything else. IGN seems to be non slow but not as fast with the added pictures. IGN also has links to ratings, message boards, and forums.

Neither seem to have addable fields, wanted field, have field, new field, price field, or sold field.

I would want a game list to to keep track of my games and for trading. I don't think anything has all the fields I want or something close. I think the best option might be to do it in excel and upload it to google spreadsheets for others to see.

I like the IGN one and have used it for years. You can click on the left side options to break the games down by console.

The link is in my sig.

Darkside your link is formated wrong. Anyone that clicks on it will get their own list.

You have
Always shows person that clicks on link list
but you want
Baron's list

You need your user name on there after owner=

Anyway I have been playing around more with it. You can add more list. So I could also have a for trade/sell list or any list I want. I can't keep track of my spending and selling with this. However, I thought about more and gnu cash already does that for me.
