Greetings from the other side of the console war fence

I am at heart a sega fan, but that does not mean i don't have a soft spot for Nintendo in my heart. Right now my main "retro" system is a SNES SNS-101 with the only modification being removing the cartridge tabs so i can play SFC games.

A little about me, first i grew up with a sega genesis and a NES in the house, i got a gameboy from my uncle (clear classic model) in the mid 90s and a N64 around the time pokemon stadium came out, later i got a gameboy color, then a GBA. I meanwhile stuck with sega for the dreamcast after the genesis/sega CD. i was a PC gamer during the 2000s due to the cost of keeping up to date on a console, i did not get a PS2 til 2008, and a xbox 360 til later in 2008.

My current systems: Dreamcast, Xbox 360 slim (non glossy 250gb), SNES-SNS-101

My current nintendo collection:
Tetris and Dr. Mario
Mario All Stars+ Super Mario World
Super Famicom Version of Street Fighter II Turbo (cheaper than a US copy)
Star Trek Starfleet Acadamey (only game i have with a box and manual)
Star Trek The Next Generation
Star Fox
Legend Of Zelda
Mortal Kombat III
Williams Arcade Collection
And i do have one reproduciton cart: Super Back To The Future II, english version.

Ask me any questions, and i will answer, but some questions below will be pre-answered.

1. Do you have a wii?
Yes and no, i personaly don't but my family does, i live at home so the grandparents and my sister have the wii downstairs

2. Why not buy a sega genesis for retro?
It is a lot easier for me to get ahold of sega games legally via xbox live, the exclusives to the snes is what drew me to it. You can get sonic on any platform, but star fox, dr. mario, mario period in fact, etc is only on nintendo hardware, and i like playing it on the real hardware on a decent TV

3. What is your retro setup?
I have my retro consoles hooked up via Composite video to a 20" Sony Triniton WEGA from 2005. The TV lacks S-Video, and my snes lacks s-video anyway, i do not feel comfortable about modifying something i paid nearly 50 bucks for to get (it came with all the hardware but not the original box)

4. Why have a few quick questions to answer?
Because it is more fun to answer the obvious questions than to let people ask them, keeps fellow members on their toes.

No I'm just kidding. Any gamer is welcome here, really. Despite the name we don't discriminate other consoles, most of us also love Xbox/PlayStation.

Console War I is long over, the console cold war is just starting.

I am more or less a retro gamer, i grew up with the 16 bit era as my era...it just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to plug a cartridge into a console instead of popping in a CD-ROM, unless it is a lunar game...gotta love lunar the silver star (my favorite RPG of all time, i had it on the sega cd), or Vay, or sonic CD. BUt most of my favorite games are from the early 90s, Mario 3 is my 2nd favorite platformer of all time, right up there with sonic 3 & knuckles.

Sounds good. We have many retro enthusiasts here.
And I'd say Wii vs. PS3 vs. 360 is Console War II. The past two generations were more like peace time.
