    Anyone still play on theirs? It was my first console in the late 1980's and i still love it. As i've grown up i've started building up a collection as you can see in the pictures below.

    The console and accessories pictured are the ones i use. Not pictured I also have a mint boxed Sega Master System Plus console package which is safely in storage.

    You can see that i have some very rare games such as Phantasy Star, Ultima IV and Golden Axe Warrior which fetch some very high prices on e-bay.

    Coming soon i'll have 2 rapid fire units and yet more games including Rainbow Islands and Zillion.

    Am i the only one with this crazy obsession with the SMS?!

    I'd say you're nuts, but not for having an obession with the SMS ;)

    Nice collection, didn't know you had all that! I know you've got loads of dreamcast stuff though. My first console was the Megadrive :/

    I had one. It was crap but I didnt realise it.

    A few years ago came the crushing realisation that my parents having bought me a Master system in 1992 was like them having bought me a PS1 in 2002 :(

    Awesome console! I had the Master System 2, which was a smaller uglier beast with no reset button. Ahh the good olde days of playing R-Type, Golden axe and the built in Alex Kidd game :D

    Amazing collection of games OP. I had about 10 or so because they were so expensive back then, and I was in high school!

    Forgot to mention that i have 2 Master System 2 consoles also!

    What i'd love though are the 3D Glasses. The are super rare and even if you did pick them up in working condition the games cost a small fortune. Out Run 3D for example usually sells for £80+ on the bay.

    I had a Master System as my fist console too with Alex Kidd built in. That bought many happy hours of gaming at Christmas. :D

    My first was the Mega Drive. I woke up one Xmas and there was a huge pile of presents taller than me (then very young) including a Mega Drive and a stack of games.

    Looking back it was quite something considering we didn't even have a TV or carpets for most of my early life. I was one lucky kid tbh, wow.

    Friends had master systems, NES and Snes etc. Never had my own but enjoyed swapping and borrowing systems on the street.

    Psycho fox was one of the best platform games ever made in 2D.

    I've got that but only given it a quick blast. It did seem quite hard.

    I don't have it any more but this was also my first console. Alex Kidd in Miracle World was built into it. I loved it.

    Always wanted the original Master System.

    I think that Moonwalker cartridge will be worth a few bob ;)

    My first was a Megadrive, but I used to enjoy playing Super Space Invaders 2 player on a friend's Master System. Have you got that?

    Wow brings back memories. At one point I had 2 master systems, the original and and the plus, which I won from a Rice Krispies competition!

    Many a hour spent playing duck shoot and hangon.

    I remember getting it home and thinking there were no games until we started it up and realised they were built in :D
