"I’ve noticed that many of the more ardent collectors often have a focus in their collection; games from a particular platform, genre, or publisher, for instance. I’ve never cared to do this until recently when I was hit with a thought: I want to collect every Megami Tensei game. I’m not entirely sure why I decided on this, but it seems like a good idea. I’ve enjoyed the games I’ve played, and I think it will be a challenging, but attainable, goal."
