The idea of Show Us Yours is you take some photos of your games collection or your gaming room or your gaming cupboard or whatever else you have in your house that is about you playing games. You then send us your photos along with a few comments about what makes yours so special. Then we publish it here on a Thursday afternoon.
Today it’s the turn of Peter J, or “Irvyne” as he prefers. (Click to enlarge each pic.)
Up top is Irvyne’s glorious Zelda collection. Is it a complete collection? No, not quite, but it’s close. (Can you work out what’s missing?) Complete or not, it’s going to be hard to top that…
Wow. Again, it’s not a complete collection, and the various PSP and GBA reissues aren’t nearly as good as the originals, but… I’m being unduly harsh. This is what Show Us Yours is all about. Photos like this bring a tear to this jaded gamer’s eye – and I don’t even really like Final Fantasy.
Irvyne isn’t done though. He’s got a whole bookcase to get through!
Let’s take it shelf by shelf…
We evidently have a Mega Man fan here, with a whole stack of the blue-suited guy’s adventures on PSone and PS2. Nice row of Resident Evils on ‘Cube, too.
Onto the GBA shelf and there’s more Mega Man, plenty of Mario and Zelda, a trio of Metroids and a couple of Warios. Below that, it’s like the N64’s Greatest Hits album, including the much sought-after PAL Paper Mario.
Rolling back the years again, we hit the SNES and yet more Mega Man. Is that Parodius? And Terranigma? And Mario RPG? Oh, and the great, great Smash Tennis – I must’ve spent more hours on that than any other SNES game. (Most of that was simply trying to return Mike’s serve.)
There’s – who knew! – even more Mega Man on the NES shelf, along with that forgotten classic… Cleaning Kit. What a great game that was.
And leaping back into modern times, Irvyne blows all his well-earned cred by displaying not one, but four PS3 SingStar games, including ABBA and – ugh! – Chart Hits. You’d think he had a girlfriend or something. Still, he has de Blob, so all is forgiven.
Don’t forget to show us yours!
