Video Games I Own
After being bogged down in the technical nature of this site for some time, I thought it was time to post something completely whimsical and orchestrated solely for my own amusement. Little is more amusing to me than the ubiquitous “trip down memory lane”. Thus, I have here composed this documentation of each and every video game I own. They are bound to number many, as I have been exposed to video games for almost the entirety of my life, and never sold or otherwise gotten rid of a single one of them. You could say that I am charting the course of my life in video games, but I won’t, as I have done many other things as well.

*: Don’t ask me why they deliberately misspelled “capers”.
**: Interim best, since I can't seem to locate Vanguard.
***: Undoubtedly the best... if only I could find it.
