    Does anyone know of a website or free software for tracking a game collection?
    I have a very extensive collection from the Sears Atari to the PS3 and need something to catalog it all so I can stop buying the same thing over and over again.

    www.1up.com let's you create a library, but I'm not sure how reliable it will be (site might not be around forever) and I'm not sure how extensive it is.

    It's called a database. Build one.

    access/excel works fine.

    if you are just looking to catalog games, i would see nothing wrong with excel.

    if you are looking to have multiple databases and start pulling information from other tables, etc. a simple access database would work fine.

    The Amazon Wishlist doesn't have any video game-specific sorting features, but it can be pretty useful

    You might want to try this. Besides just keeping track of the games name, it also gets images, descriptions, etc. automatically. You can even scan in games by bar code if you have a bar code scanner such as cuecat.

    Technically, you have to pay for it, but you can easily find it for free on sites like rapidshare.
