I sure do apreciate RU!

I'm sure you haven't noticed but I haven't been around in quite some time.
I couldn't handle my high stress job anymore so I quit last year and lead a transient life. I realized I didn't want to go back to reality I sold everything I had except 2 duffle bags of clothes and my extensive video game collection. After I sold my nice new car someone gifted me a beater so I could drive across country to find a new home. I decided I wanted to do something someone would never forget so before I left instead of going to the ATM to grab my buddy/roommate the $40 and the case of beer I owed him I asked him if he would take secret of Mana, Link to the past, Mario RPG, and the first three American released FF's instead. And of course in a confused manner he agreed and I said "Cool I'm going to take off and in my room is my furniture you can have and my entire game collection, minus a 360 and Skyrim of course. enjoy." And I drove off 2000 miles away 900 to 1000 video games lighter. So it goes without saying I'm probably going to be around a little bit more. I need something to do and RU is the place to get it done.
Happy gaming folks.

Go get your games back!

But really you seem to have no regrets and going by your avatar pic it looks like you cleaned up and are sleeping better, must be doing something right.

Re: I sure do apreciate RU!

Nice. Hope it worked out. I did something similar once.

What systems were the games on?

Sounds like SNES to me.

But that's quite the game changer you have going Warghoul. Not easy
making a big change like that, but good for you, I'm glad to see
your return.

@ Kong So far it's been working out. I found a room similar to the one Elwood Blues lived in. I got a part time job. Things are good but I'm still figuring it out.
The games were on NES, SNES, N64, Genisis, Saturn, Dreamcast, game gear, 3do, PS1, and Atari.
He got the systems as well. So I'm really happy I have a place like RU. I dont have to carry boxes everywhere I travel and can still play lots of my favorites.

Re: I sure do apreciate RU!

Man, I want to kill myself when I think of all the video game stuff I had over the years that I got rid of, and you got rid of all yours willingly, in one pop, and for nothing in return? Big balls all right.

Re: I sure do apreciate RU!

You know you're dealing with worthwhile people when You say you couldn't handle your life any more so you got rid of everything you worked for your whole life, said goodbye to friends and family, drove cross country with no destination or plan hoping to find something more in life, and someone says you got rid of your games you got balls. I love this place.

Thanks for all the positivity everyone.
