What game related stuff do you collect?  Art collections?  Soundtracks?  Figurines?

I know some members here collect soundtracks, and I'm curious how widespread this is and/or what other people collect.

Figures, and as some of you now own, art books.
I have some clothing, some from work I use as PJs (a very awesome SotC one and a Metroid one ranked as my favs).

Maybe Ill be one of "those" nerds and take a shot of it.

I'm a minor collector of soundtracks and art books (I put a bit more effort into soundtracks) but I haven't really explored other areas.  For the longest time I didn't collect action figures I didn't want to be one of "those" nerds, but lately I've been thinking that a Solid Snake figurine on top of the desk next to the mini-busts of Beethoven and Brahms may make me seem a bit let pretentious. ;)  More seriously, though, I've looked around for one but they all seem to be out of print and available for no less than $50. :(  I guess I'll have to start the figurine collection elsewhere.

I mostly collect games and English-language artbooks and info books.  I do own about a dozen Dragon Quest Sofubi Monsters, though: http://dragon-quest.org/wiki/Dragon_Quest_Sofubi_Monster.  I'd get more if money wasn't quite so tight.

I don't collect anything specific, but I do have a large collection of video game related stuff like accessories, toys, figures, art, and other knick-knacks. I suppose I semi-collect the games themselves, but only ones I actually like! Haha.

I usually don't collect (much) game related stuff. When it comes to soundtracks, artbooks and figures it'd have to be ones that I'd REALLY like to have around. I have soundtracks for various old Square titles, a Persona artbook or two and Dante and Ezio figures. I used to have FFX-2 keychains too (and still have a Witcher one which is basically a weapon on its own), so really it's kind of random. That doesn't count random E3 swag either.

...the exception is Mass Effect, for which I have EVERYTHING. Comics, novels, art books, LEs, clothing, dog tags, a Normandy replica, I even have playing cards. And probably the FShep and Garrus PlayArts later this year.

They always put out a ton of lithographs for Mass Effect but it's one thing I don't buy. Kind of expensive to ship and not sure what I'd do with 'em anyway.

I'm like FlamingR1ft on this one.  There's no particular thing I collect, and yet somehow I have ended up with all sorts of junk.  I mean collectibles.

The only thing I buy nowadays is soundtracks. And even then, it's only for a select few games. My most recent purchases have been Mass Effect 3, Journey, To The Moon, and the Indie game Music bundle that had something like 15 soundtracks in it. The Fittest soundtrack by Zircon(Andrew Aversa) is a standout.
I used to buy, and still own, all sorts of jrpg music. Everything Ys and Final Fantasy, including Japan only stuff.
For the longest time I collected T-shirts, and still get a new one on occasion.  It helped that I worked at Babbages(pre-Gamestop) for 5 years. I had one for Symphony of the Night, Ocarina of Time, and others.
I also still have a random collection of guides, toys, etc. in a box somewhere.

I collect the lamentations of my enemies.

Actually I guess the only thing I "collect" are board games, but I actually play them fairly regularly. Does that count?

I used to collect special editions, etc.  Until I realized "I really don't do anything with this stuff except it sits on a shelf."  I do have some game decorations I'm keeping (Skyrim SE dragon, Bioshock 1 LE Big Daddy Figure, etc), but I'm way past buy-every-game-as-a-collector's edition.

I think the one that did it in for me was Civilization V.  Not only did I pay MORE for the game, the stuff in it was crap and I didn't get the DLC from the Digital Deluxe.  Awful deal.

I've never really bought t-shirts, but if I saw one I liked I probably would.  I imagine this doesn't exist, but I would love a Metal Gear Solid t-shirt that shows Snake peeking out from under the cardboard box and reads "LIVE BY THE BOX, DIE BY THE BOX".  I do collect some games in special edition form, but only if it's something special to me or has awesome bonuses like a great soundtrack on disc.

I do have a couple artbooks and soundtracks, but only of games I care about, so I wouldn't call it a collection...

For me a "real" collection is when you start buying stuff you don't really care about just to complete it: I do have a couple of shitty RPGs for the DS since my goal is to get every one published on the system, so that's pretty much the only thing I would actually call a collection.

Of course nowadays you get a little something for every pre-orders so I do have a box full of various pre-order junk: stickers, cards, pens and stuff...

I used to be an avid collector of game osts. Not so much anymore, except the occasional buy now and then.

Odds and ends really. I only have a few things and no rhyme or reason as to what I'll buy, just whatever catches my eye when I'm in the mood to spend $$$

I'm a big SMT fan, so I try and collect anything SMT related. Art books, the games themselves, figures, etc. I'm not crazy about it. Only what I can afford.
