Picked up some boxes full of my old stuff from my parents house on Saturday and I've been digging thru it and it has been an absolute treasure trove. I've got more than a thousand USD worth of old SNES games, most of them complete in box. I've also got a massive collection of Magic the Gathering cards from around 4th-5th edition and all the expansions around that era. I don't even want to go thru all of these, but I'm never going to use them again so I honestly have no clue what to do with them. I'm sure their condition would not be considered good because they've been mostly in regular ass cardboard boxes with no other kind of protection, some of them without even a cardboard lid on. On top of all that, I've got about 2-3 dozen starter decks from the MYRIAD collectible card games that were flooding the market in the mid 90s, because they were literally handing these out at Gen Con the couple years I attended. Star Wars CCG, Shadowrun CCG, some pirate themed CCG, some feudal Chinese themed CCG, generic-ass D&D themed CCG, Highlander CCG, Dragonball Z CCG. Got a bunch of early edition Pokemon CCG cards too, including about 2 dozen foils, but time and basement dankness has warped all of those so that they're all really badly arced and not playable at all.
Other spoils include old D&D books and modules (I never really played D&D, just bought books for it for some reason), about 2 dozen PS2 era strategy guides, a bunch of PS2-era preorder incentives, like art books and music CD's, tons of posters, some of which are totally rad (I have a 90s era Shadowrun poster that I'm seriously thinking about getting framed, even tho it came folded and never left that state, so it's creased up real good). I threw away a few hundred burned CD ROMs with anime on them and a few dozen old bootleg Chinese Gundam DVDs that I got off ebay and never watched because they were in such shit condition when I got them (some cracked, most didn't even have proper, readable English subs, etc). I have a full run of Great Teacher Onizuka manga that I read and don't know what to do with. Bunch of old, awful PC games. I have a set of 2 inch Disgaea figures that were super limited direct order from NIS's website a few months after that first game came out. They're all still intact but most of the figures have socketed joints that don't stay in for shit, so they fall apart unless completely untouched.
Probably the best thing I found was a Pokemon memo sized notebook that I was using as a journal for my first year of community college mandated journal, ca. 1999. 18-year-old LiQuid!'s diary!!! I read thru a couple pages and it's just about as embarrassing as you could imagine. The very first line was a rumination on parents' seemingly sole purpose on the earth being to suck and be shitty! It gets even better from there, I assure you. I'm real tempted to transcribe and post some of it for yucks, but I dunno if I want to put any evidence that I at any time sucked onto the internet. It eventually turns into a general "notes" book that I used to scribble video game shit on, and a sketchbook that I have a bunch of godawful weeby drawings in. It's really kind of an amazing thing. It's a horrible thing. But kind of amazing.
Anyways, I don't know what to do with any of this stuff. So many remnants of my past life as a weeb and mega nerd. Aside from the SNES games none of this shit is worth money but just seeing it all again is flooding me with memories and I dunno if I wanna let it all go.
