I have 29 Import games across 8 systems. So far.
I've only got one, .hack//versus. I want a couple more, though.
I've stopped caring about a lot of things. But not Sonic. Never Sonic. :P
Pandoras tower a few months prior to the US release as I didn't think it was gonna come out.
Could have lived without it as I don't think I played pandora's tower more than 3 minutes total..
Will say I do own a Japanese Gameboy Advance though which I imported the day it came out in Japan, and woulda been mighty upset if it was locked. My old gameboy was acting up when it the GBA was about to come out in japan, and my favorite importer was running a special, so I figured might as well spend a few bucks more(literally after shipping it was not far off what I would have paid for tax) and get the next system instead of buying another game boy and then the advance in 2 months when it was scheduled for the US.
None, never quite saw the point. Usually the games I would have to import aren't the type of game I would want to play anyways. Bunch of dating sims and awkward games, or just games I can't read/understand.
People who import games are a minority. Sure it is a problem for a small group of gamers, but lets be fair... That voice isn't loud enough and a lot of people are just jumping on that bandwagon of "ZOMG, no more region locks! 1 world!" bulls***.
It has never and will most likely ever effect my purchase of a game I would want to play.
Since this game rely on micro transaction when people leave for mop this game will be I survive. - MageGuyInfinity
I own a HUGE pile of imports between my partner and I. These are just physical items. And yes, I have imports from multiple regions. And this doesn't count items that were imported by local retailers and sold because they weren't region locked (PS3 and NDS games have that happen a lot, here). I probably have more, but this is off the top of my head. This is also not including PC games of any variety.

I have 4, I never play any of them since I can't read Japanese. Pokemon Green and Pokemon Stadium Zero I got just to say I have them, being a giant Pokemon fanboy. Wonder Project J2 for the N64 I got in some box of games I bought at a flea market. And something for the Gameboy that I can't even read the title of, nor do I remember where/why I have it. That's about it.
Since I never play them, it would be inconsequential to me if the systems they were on were region locked like the current ones.
This is all that I have left.

Zero. Never imported, never will. If the game don't come out here, that sucked but I'll live. I bought Last Story and Pandora's Tower when it was released here but I wouldn't have imported them.
