Post Building a collection...

Well I'm now going to start collecting for the Colecovision!

Though I do want to ask, what games do you think would be good to go after first?

I have a few in mind I want to get first but I'm interested in your thoughts.

If you've got some money to spend, try to buy in bulk - it ultimately saves you shipping if you're buying online. If you are local shopping - then I envy you cause I have no where local to get such things, then by all means hunt em down one by one.

Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, Mr. Do, Q-Bert, Frenzy, Pepper II, Ladybug, Zaxxon, Frogger, Star Wars Arcade, Miner 2049er, Gorf, Gyruss, Burger Time, Cosmic Avenger, Venture ... Those are just SOME of my must haves.

Also if you are into home brew titles...Mario Bros, Mr Chin and Ghosts's Zombies are all well worth the price tags if you can find them.

I just got a complete in box ColecoVision myself, (in great shape actually, manuals and all)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UREZgdrcb9U --for a system overview. And yea, DK and DKjr are fun to play on it, weird, but fun. MouseTrap as seen alot of play time, but my favorites so far are Time Pilot and Miner 2049er... both Highly recommended!

Absolutely, saw your comment and thanks John, really glad I purchased the CV. Its just been a lot of fun and actually your review on it you did awhile back on your channel helped sell me on it, so thanks for that.
And getting back to Outlaw's original post: Im finding alot of the arcade ports are really fun and well done for the ColecoVision, so I would check more of those out, I know I am....
