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

I got the chills from this, I tip my hat to you good sir
"You order a slice of strawberry pie, and the waitress indicates through words and movements that it will be brought to you presently. The radio speaks soothingly to you from staticky speakers set into a foam-tile ceiling. It is telling a story about you! Your story, at last.”
The Chrome Dome’s having technical difficulties. I will be able to answer this in a moment /(•~•)\
Ok now that this issue has been fixed….
2:Do you ever get “good morning” texts from anyone?
3:If your significant other smoked pot, would you care?
I kind of have to, since I have asthma. But I guess if they didn’t do it around me then???? (although even the smell burns the back of my throat….)
4:Do you find it easy to trust others?
It’s really one of my main weaknesses. I place a bit of trust in everyone I meet, which can come back to bite me in the long run.
9:I bet you kissed someone last night, right?
In what alternate universe? I’ve never had the opportunity to kiss anyone romantically in my entire life.
16:Do you always answer your texts?
If my phone receives it (iMessages are tricky since i don’t have my cellular data on 24/7 like most people do with their iPhones…) then I answer it. Of course, it also depends on when it was sent and at what time I am just now seeing it.
81:Has someone who had a crush on you ever confessed to you ?
Not that I’m aware of?????? If someone has a crush on me please let me know I mean…. It’s lonely being a Chrome Dome
Thanks Anon! And sorry about the previous technical mishap!
