Retro Gaming and Collecting

  1. On a less shitposting note (see my new thread today about @Gwazi Magnum reaching more than 16,800 posts), I'm noticing a lot of people getting into retro game collecting.

    I have to admit, I am more than a little interested in getting into this hobby.

    I got some money to burn, but at the same time, I don't want to be simply wasting it away.

    How does one break even in this hobby, find good deals, and get connected such that bulk-purchase of old games becomes more feasible?

    How much did you have to invest before you started seeing a return? How much went into games versus gaming system and accessories? How much went into storing your collection (such as buying and installing shelves)?

    I'm curious to know!
