While i'm not totally surprised that Chris owned a bunch of Dungeons and Dragons crap, (considering all the other nerd rubbish he's accumulated), doesn't that game require, you know, friends? --Beat 03:51, 14 November 2009 (CET)

  • Those are actually old D&D-based PC games. (Or I assume PC, anyway, some of the SSI gold-box RPGs got ported to consoles, but not all of those, I think.) So it's not quite as unlikely as that. Still a little odd, though, since if you look at his console game collection he doesn't seem to have any interest in RPGs there at all. Dkaien 03:58, 14 November 2009 (CET)
    • Actually, my immediate thought when I saw the list was "oh my god, that is his Commodore 64 library". All of those games were released for C64 as well. Speaking of which, I wonder how much of a C64 geek he really was back in the day if he sold it "new, in box". --wwwwolf (wake me when you need me) 09:37, 14 November 2009 (CET)
      • The C64 struck me more as something he probably picked up at a garage sale or the like. He's a bit young to have been a C64 enthusiast - born in '82, so the machine's heyday would have been over before he was 10 years old. Not to mention, Chris's packrat tendencies being what they are, if he had any enthusiasm for the C64 he would probably never sell it... Dkaien 10:31, 14 November 2009 (CET)
        • Yeah, I was thinking he probably still has a C64 somewhere, and he only tried to sell the D&D RPGs because they were overly complex. I mean, if he has sold two PS1 systems, he probably raided garage sales/flea markets to get them in first place. Only logical explanation, right? ...well, assuming Chris operates logically, but still? --wwwwolf (wake me when you need me) 21:18, 14 November 2009 (CET)
          • Sure, I buy that. (And the PS1 thing is hilarious - if I reckon the list of auctions correctly, he's owned at least FOUR of them, since presumably he still has one in his possession.) Dkaien 21:34, 14 November 2009 (CET)

He owned a Harry Potter game, eh? And sold it with his PS1? The plot thickens. Ensign disposable 04:39, 14 November 2009 (CET)

  • Despite his hatred of Harry Potter, he buys a lot of licensed games and stuff he never plays, so it's not totally out of character. --Anaconda 06:56, 14 November 2009 (CET)

Excellent article idea, find a picture and it can become a featured article. --Champthom 07:25, 14 November 2009 (CET)

  • Sure, easily done. A question, by the way - when his e-mail accounts got hacked, did anybody compile a list like this of the stuff he bought on eBay? 'Cos I have to imagine that would make for an even more interesting article. Dkaien 21:34, 14 November 2009 (CET)

eBay purchases

I don't think we have any sort of eBay purchases, but would anyone like to start compiling a list of eBay purchases? Screenshots from late 2008 hacked e-mails should provide as a guide of eBay purchases (like the stuff he got for Megan). --Champthom 01:26, 20 December 2009 (CET)
