video game, collector, collection, Quebec


This article takes a look at the community of game collectors in Quebec, first by exploring how ludovideophily compares itself from classic collecting. We then isolate Quebec video game collection to identify how the community navigates through a world that is even more open and that interacts mostly in English. Do specifically Quebec centric attributes exist ? An incursion inside this group will highlight our reflection and help confirm if these collectors meld themselves in the bigger group or if they stick their head high enough to differentiate from the international communities.
