    What kinds of items do you like to collect in your rpg games.
    For Oblivion and Skyrim I like to collect various odd items, weapons and armor.

    In Morrowind (still the best Elder Scrolls game in my book) I always horded Dwemer, Daedric, Glass and Ebony stuff. I loved hunting down artifacts as well. I'd always have several houses will all my loot displayed.

    Everything I can. Especially, when the game doesn't recognize "story items", so I don't know what to sell, or just leave. ;P

    Money and Power.

    Actually thats a lie, money is a by product, I spend it to get high level weapons.

    Actually, I never used to 'collect' anything in RPGs, I used to upgrade everything in SW:KOTOR but the lack of a decent storage/display system meant I got rid of everything. Mass Effect 2 and 3 don't really allow 'collecting' per se.

    Only in Skyrim have I been collecting anything, and thats only because most vendors can't afford all my loot. I have full sets of light armour, heavy armour, ebony weapons, daedric weapons, dragonbone weapons etc.

    But I find it quite satisfying that the game has racks and stuff to display your gear, a really really nice touch.

    In Skyrim I horde EVERYTHING. I like to have at least one full set of weapons and armour per material type.

    If you count Pokemon as an RPG, I love collecting the TM's. It's always a thrill to be hunting around for them and finding the awesome ones like Ice Beam and Flamethrower :D

    In Skyrim and i'll pretty much pick up anything that's useful, armour, weapons, potions, food.
    I also seem to have an awful lot of various ores and ingots
    In Fable I tend to collect clothes and jewelry a lot

    Haha, in Fallout 3 and NV I collected weapons and Ammo.

    In Fallout 3 I remember having shit tonnes of missiles, in the final battle I would wade in there with a missile launcher with a billion missiles, and the experimental fatboy with a thousand mini nukes or whatever.

    I loved it in NV when they put a weight on ammo, so I started hoarding all my ammo in one of the footlockers in my room in the Casino place.

    Yeah, I guess Fallout 3 is when I actually started 'collecting' things in RPGs. I never did anything like that in stuff like FF or KOTOR or even Mass Effect. In those games it was always biggest gun/best lightsaber wins.

    In Fallout 3/NV/Skyrim its all 'what method of death should I take with me today?'

    Badges and Pokemon.

    If by collecting you mean "a bunch of the same or similar things", then I collect Ditto specifically (one of each nature).

    In Pokemon Diamond I collect shinies. I also enjoy decorating my underground base.

    In Skyrim I collect everything but I really like books. One day I'm gonna organize em.
