There are plenty of websites on the internet that offer a go-to place for all the information on one topic. Gamers have always had eBay to surf through to admire video game history. Now, a new site aims to be the go-to source for video gaming collections and information. The site is known as the Video Games Collectionary, and the website can help you along the way if you plan to purchase collectibles. At this time, there is a growing library of information, and the website is currently looking for credible moderators to build this on-going dictionary of video games.

Browsing through the Video Games Collectionary, you will see some very rare items such as development kits from classic systems or console bundles. There are specific games, as well, but a good bit of the listings are people's items for sale on ebay. This causes a lot of duplicates on the Collectionary On the side bar, you can filter genres and consoles to help you find something in particular. Basically, anything related to video games can be found on this site. You can also see what recent listing on ebay sold for, to give a better idea of what the collectible is worth.

Signing up for the website means you can submit content, comment on listings, and be notified when a certain collectible is for sale. You can also build your own online collection, or note that you want that item. Adding items and making comments will give your profile Impact Points, which builds your credibility at adding details on the website. You can also follow people and keep track of their collections and information.

Speaking with Pretty Hagad, a visionary behind the Collectionary, the inspiration behind the site was to create a Dictionary of everything in the world that people collect. He states, "There are hundreds of e-commerce sites, but there is no dedicated place where you can learn about different items. Whether it's the history, facts, or unique attributes regarding a video game collectible or item, we want to give people a place to learn about the collectibles they love." The origin of the name "Collectionary" is a play on the words Collection and Dictionary, hence this is where the idea came from for the name.

Hagad states there are multiple Collectionaries to join, and each one is looking for expert, credible moderators to help add items to the website. The idea is to make sure visitors enjoy browsing all the amazing collectibles ever created, and getting a full sense of nostalgia all while pointing them in the direction of where to purchase these items online. The website can be viewed here, so feel free to collect a profile and find some lost treasures from video gaming history.
