mostly because I haven't had much reason to trade. It's hard to find stuff that I'm looking for
The era of streaming and torrents is to "blame", because lots of what we used to scrimp and scrounge for, in any quality, is now available fully released, sometimes even restored. And of course, that's not really a bad thing. There's still reason to trade, as not everything is available, and it still happens quite a bit, but less so now that the 1990s and 2000s.

lol now its just one fast trip to an emulation site and it's all there.
I think gaming has shifted a lot, too. PSX is not seen as vintage, just old. I've seen large downloads of the old ISOs available, but those seems unpopular due to size alone.

Me: Discs in closet, ISOs on drives, streaming to whole house via WDTVs.

I'm with you on that.....my entire collection is on NAS drives (I've got 7 of the 12tb devices just for the DVD video stuff) and I stream it all through the house using WDTV, BoxeeBox and KDLinks devices. It's a beautiful thing not having to look for discs anymore

I really like the menu of shows viewable on TV.

"Hmm.... do I feel like re-run of Get Smart? Nah. Too corny right now."
< Looks some more >
"Maybe something newer like NCIS? Nah, too serious."
< Looks some more >
"I feel sciency right now. Hmmm... how about that science documentary I keep meaning to watch? Also too serious..."
< Looks some more >
"I know! Star Wars!"
< Looks some more >
"Ah, Clone Wars. Perfect!"

Total time: 2-3 minutes sitting in my recliner with remote in hand.

All without having to dig around, get sidetracked when I can't find the disc I want, and getting frustrated.

It's like having my own TV network in-house.

Exactly right. I have all of my stuff broken down by category too, each NAS device holds similar content broken down by cartoons, movies, tv shows, wrestling etc.....also, everything in alphabetized with sub folders #-Z, some stuff I have in its own folders if I have like 20 discs of a certain show just so its not crowding a particular letter in the alphabet. I just basically point my media player to the root directory of each device and when I boot it up, ALL the directories are right there to sift through. So my media player basically shows these at startup all as ISO files and everything has full menu support except the blu-ray ISOs
Cartoons (#-M)
Cartoons (N-Z)
Movies (#-H)
Movies (I-Z)
Blu-ray #-H)
Blu-ray (I-Z)
TV Shows
Music
Wrestling 1
Wrestling 2

Truly a space saver and most importantly, a time saver

You can find all the old games on archive.org. They all work great on the shield tv.
