Xbox 360 x3
Guitar Hero Live guitar
Dark Chambers (Atari 2600)
The Humble Builder Bundle BTA Tier
Wing Commander 1+2 (GOG)
Wing Commander 3 Heart of the Tiger (GOG)
Wing Commander 4: The Price of Freedom (GOG)
Wing Commander: Privateer (GOG)
Privateer 2: The Darkening (GOG)
Ultima 7 The Complete Edition (GOG)

The 360s were $10 each (maybe a little less all up) from the Frankston recycle store. A 20gb system, a 60gb system and a slim/E without a HDD. They came with 1 power brick.

The 20gb system works and had COD4 GOTY in the disc drive. The 60gb system works and hasn't been formatted, so there's a bunch of working games on it although not much that I don't already have. I need to get a power adapter to test the slim/E.

The GHL guitar was a few bucks from the recycle store but I haven't tested it yet.

Jedi Fallen Order. Bought it for Xbox One X since I just got mine replaced. But man, does this game run bad. The frame rate is all over the place and texture suffer from pop-in constantly. I’m 2 hours in and am already looking to sell it so I can get the PC version instead.

Pokemon Sword & Shield (Switch)
The Witcher 3 (Switch)
Dragon Quest 11 S (Switch)
Skyrim (Switch)
Collection Of Mana (Switch)
Monster Boy (Switch)
Days Gone (PS4)
The Outer Worlds (Xbox)
Tekken 7 (Xbox)
Greedfall (Xbox)
FTL (iOS)
XCOM (iOS)
PS3 Slim 160GB
PS2 Slim
Logitech G27 Racing Wheel

The PS3 was $5 from the recycle store. I got it for spare parts and wasn't expecting it to work but it does work. Got the PS2 from there as well.

The Logitech G27 was also from the recycle store and it was $10. It also works, which is a nice bargain. It's the wheel, gear shift and the pedals. In the box with it was a Kinect 360, so that was a freebie.

Monster Hunter World (PC) so I can play with friends I would normally hang out with IRL.

Half-Life Alyx, though I’m first working my way through the originals (I’m 3 chapters away from beating HL2).

Doom 64 (Steam). The game doesn't run on my laptop, it's ridiculous that a N64 port requires DirectX 11.

Doom 64 is a fantastic game with a very special place in my heart. I already own the N64 cart and worked on improving the Absolution TC. Doom 64 EX, which the Steam version is based on, is supposed to be the most faithful port. N64 emulators can't run custom mods and often miss some effects.

To sum it up, I bought the game on Steam to support the devs. And I'd also buy it on the Switch if I had one.

I got Doom 64 on the Switch too, as well as a bunch of other Switch cheapies that included Serial Cleaner.

My thoughts exactly. I don’t even know if I’ll play it on Switch, but Doom 64 is my favorite Doom game ever and I needed to support this. I remember freaking out at the Nintendo Direct when they announced it.
