With my collection surpassing the 500 game mark (something I’m not proud of actually) I decided to sit down and compile a list of the most valuable games I own.

The Console Wars

In this article, I want to take a look back at "format wars" that have personally impacted me through the last 30 years. This won't be a history lesson, but rather the story of my own personal experiences.
