I deeply regret not buying a Sega Saturn and Dreamcast when they launched. Sega Saturn for the game availibility and pricing, Dreamcast for the online (DLC mainly), and the games being new.

I regret not having a PSX somewhat, as there are a lot of good games I missed out on until fairly recently on PSX.

I regret never owning an NES until I got my FC Twin about a month ago, again, a lot of good games.

I regret not owning an SNES until 2005.


I don't really regret never owning a Sega Master System, as I see it as more of a collector's item (at least in the US) because it kinda flopped here.

I don't really regret never owning an original Xbox, as I have never cared for Halo, and the games don't really interest me for the most part. Those that do, luckily, have very excusable error on the 360.

-Not finishing all those games I started when I was actually playing them (especially the Ar Tonelico games).
-Lending Threads of Fate to a friend... and never getting it back.

Also regret ever joining a hardcore raiding guild in World of Warcraft. If it weren't for that, I wouldn't have the huge backlog I do now. Seriously, I neglected console gaming for so long...

I don't think I regret anything gaming wise. It's not like I could have elected to go out and get something so much as a couple of years ago:
1. Lack of job 2. Lack of parental consent on most high-priced items.

As for not beating unfinished games, I can agree; however, I feel like I've actually maintained my collection fairly well since I created my database (which eventually led me to creating a BL, of course).

While this wasn't my fault, I still regret it happening. Also:
-Somehow losing a completed Pokémon Stadium 2 and both of our Transfer Paks

I think that's about it, really.
