I do enjoy collecting things in games, but if there's no in-game means of identifying where they are I absolutely just use online guides. I quite liked the star bottle-cap collection quest in New Vegas because you don't have to sweat about getting every one everywhere you go, you just need to keep an eye out for them and eventually you'll get enough. One thing that drives me completely nuts is collection side-quests in which you can permanently miss one of the collectables, especially in long RPGs.

As for self-imposed collections, I did the same as Indy_S and kept all of the unique weapons in New Vegas as well as building some character specific collections. I'm pretty sure I did a similar thing when I played Morrowind a million years ago, but I can't think of any other games I've done it in. I certainly didn't keep all the unique weapons in Baldur's Gate or Dragon Age, as soon as they became obsolete I sold them.
