hi there
My name Massimiliano, live in Milano, 50% of german origin.
I was born 1967 so I well remember the videogames invasion and excitement of the early 80's ...
My favourite arcade games are Ozma Wars, Looping, Super Tank, Commando, Gyruss, Astron Belt, Juno First.
My first console - apart some Pongs I still own - was an Intellivision ( always refused to play Atari 2600 ! ) and I still remember the days spent with a friend playing UTOPIA.
My favourite console is ColecoVision and my favourite hc is Commodore 128D. Don't laugh, I like some Arcadia 2001 games too.
Creativision was a strange console ... I immediately appreciated the graphics when bought in 1983 (or 1984 ?) but gameplay was terrible and games too.
I collect all consoles and hc of the 70's, 80's and 90's and recently started arcade games and cabinets of the 80's only.
I have some rare games and prototypes of the 80's, some I like, some others of no interest. The diagnostic cartridges for Creativision are not "playable", that's why I gave CREATIVEMU. They can do a better use of them. More than a collector I am a gamer and I prefer to collect playable carts ... .
This is not my only hobby being a collector of classic cars, saloons only (real cars, not toys). Specialized in European cars of the 70's and 80's I have many big saloons of that time and start now restoring a U.S. car of the 70's. Actually, cannot say if more expensive to restore my DeVille or to complete my arcade collection...
Unfortunately my job absorb me more and more time, my family absorb the rest so stay in touch, may be one day not so far all my collection will be for sale.
