It’s not the biggest collection in the world, and the rarest game he has tops out at around $600, a far cry from the thousands of dollars some rare games are reported to be worth.
So what makes his collection so special? It’s all about the aesthetics, dude. Norton’s 5,200-game collection is meticulously alphabetized and displayed so everyone can enjoy it in all its spectacular glory. “I suppose I’d have to consider myself a Nintendo fanboy. I grew up in the 1980s. Nintendo and Mario was everywhere, there was no escaping it,” Norton recalled. “From Sunday morning cartoons, cereal, underwear, bed sheets and lunch boxes.
Nintendo makes fantastic games and has enduring franchises. It is without a doubt my favorite company.” “I’ve acquired a ton of games, but I don’t feel like I’ve spent a ton. Most people don’t realize that many of these classic games can be found for $1 - $4 each,” he dished. “It’s all about finding the right deal at the right time. Hunting out your local area. Finding extras games for cheap and trading online.
To me collecting has become a fun game in and of itself.” “I’d say I have most of the rare games for most systems,” he went on to say. “To be honest it may be easier to mention the hard-to-find games I don’t have.
For the NES I own a complete licensed set, except for the very hard-to-find Stadium Events. My Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64 and Gamecube sets are complete as well, except for the two mail-order Super Nintendo competition carts. I also own a complete set for Virtual Boy, Sega Game Gear and Sega 32x. I’m working on finishing up my Sega Master System, Game Boy and Game Boy Color sets.” X

Why have I got a feeling that this is going to be pretty bad?
Is it still too late for me to take up another hobby?
yoshi get away from that you’ll catch bad game rabies
Just because Silver is in the not-so-favorite Sonic game does not mean he is a bad character.
Not only that but Yoshi’s Island DS wasn’t the most brilliant game in the world. It can also be more irritating than fun. Maybe Yoshi cursed the Sonic series. Considering it came out a day before Sonic 06.
Am I awake.
I'm here in the Wikipedia reading about Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, and it say's that you did some art of Sonia from SU for the Wii and Steam versions. Is this actually true or just another usual false statement made by Wikipedia!?
Believe it or not, it’s completely true! But, it was an accident:
I drew this in 2007:
It’s a fairly popular piece of Sonic fanart (somehow…) and it pops up in google searches frequently. An employee for Sumo Digital (the studio that made Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing) thought it would be a good idea to google for Sonic Art and mistook my drawing of Sonia for official artwork and used it for the cards.
SEGA did notice this and told them to remove it, but it stayed in the low-rez versions of the game and neglected to notice until a few weeks after the game came out (they patched it on the PC version, but it’s stuck in the Wii version forever! :D)
So there ya go!
