This is far by most beloved game, I think it's a masterpiece.

Favorite Game And Some Other Highlights

Antonio Monteiro claims that his favorite game is Castlevania IV, which he calls a "masterpiece."
Out of all 20,139 games, he considers Castlevania IV to be the best.
In addition, he identified the Sega Genesis as the gaming device that got him started in the industry because it "provided a challenging interactive environment with a story backset".

As unforgiving as most of the games in this generation were due to their limited saving/resuming capabilities, beating a game provided this incredible sensation of accomplishment, satisfaction, and happiness. This feeling created a bond with those games, to where I treasured them and wanted to keep them.
As may be anticipated from a collection of this kind, it has a number of unique games that are difficult to track down in any other location.
Some of the rarest items in his collection are things like whole sets of video games for older consoles like the Nintendo 64 DD.
Access to the online service known as "RandnetDD" was gained through the use of this accessory for the Nintendo 64 video game console.
The product was only available in Japan, where it racked up approximately 15,000 sales. There are currently nine games available for the 64DD.
Antonio selected a variety of unique items to decorate his shelves. The first program was referred to as the Max Basic Rifle Marksmanship Program.
It was never made available to the general public and was only distributed by Nintendo to the United States Military for use in target practice.
A series of educational Sega Dreamcast games such as Timeless Math, which, in Antonio's words, meant "you'd be able to go into school and play games," is also in his possession.
Other titles that have proven to be exceedingly tough to find include Daytona USA Netlink Edition for the Sega Saturn, M.A.C.S. for the Super Nintendo, and Barbie Groom and Glam Pups for the Nintendo 3DS; however, he has not yet been successful in locating Myriad 6 in 1 for the NES.
How does he choose which game to play when there are so many to choose from?
I have a sub-list of games of games that I want to play, and focus on playing each to a conclusion prior to moving on to another. Periodically I refresh that list based on new acquisitions or new releases that interest me.
