500 is a solid achievement. You are closing in relatively quickly! Hopefully it won't take another 22 years to finish

May the force be with you.

Congratulations! I'm still hovering around the 100 mark, but haven't put much into it over the past few years. In my 20 years of casually collecting for the system, I think my best additions have been 10$ copies of Chrono Trigger and R-Type III. I also second that The 7th Saga is worth playing, although I remember next to nothing about it.

This came to mind for me as well.

Congrats on 500. This is a cool way of reporting a milestone.

AWESOME DUDE!

Love the stats sweet idea.

Snes is my favorite. Im only sitting on about 40 carts right now but they are all killer no filler.

Score on that hagane cart. I pretty much wrote that game off since it spiked

Congratulations man. Nice thread too. I enjoyed reading the stats. I'm closing in on 200 snes, and it's a great system with great games. What's your timeline on finishing the set?

Like others have mentioned, I'm a fan of the stats

500 is an impressive number. Are there any other big titles for SNES on your immediate radar?

Well, never.  The only way I could ever see justifing the cost of MBR/SR is as an investment.  Or my salary doubles.

But completing 99% of the collection?  I could see it happening in 3-4 years.  Plenty of uncommons left to go.

Next time I get a bonus, or large raise or something, I'm targetting Metal Warriors

Very cool!  Thank you for the stats idea.  My first milestone that I'll post should follow a similar formula.  Good luck on attaining that sought after game  "May the odds ever be in your favor."

Congrats man! That's a whole lot of snes games! I enjoyed reading all the stats!

I think the most I had at one time was like 130 or so. I'm down around 50-60 now. Not really actively collecting for snes anymore but it's still my favorite system!
