This is a _collectors_ guide, yes? (Not shooting at you, just saying.)
Professionally produced homebrew (especially of the good kind) sounds collectable to me. Especially when you run out of originals very very quickly.
Numbers can change principles IMO. Feel free to disagree.
The Vectrex is perhaps a unique situation, the way the homebrew market grew was on incredibly limited editions of physical carts and making the ROM available for users with a Flash cart. So it will be incredibly difficult to get hold of the homebrew as collector's items. Thus I can understand Mat going for an overview of the commercial titles that will in general be easier to obtain. Perhaps a follow-up article focusing on the homebrew Vectrex scene would be good?
