Keep going for a video tour of the entire collection.

Thanks to nappo and Charlie^2, who plan to get a group together, win the auction, then alternate months with different systems and games. OMG PLEASE LET ME GET IN ON THIS.

    i seen a collection twice this size in thoroughness and with multiples of various items in indiana. personally seen at least 3 separate gold nwc games unopened. guy smelled like dead cats, don't ask.

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    He can keep the Virtual Boy games.

  • JMeyer47

    I can see why people collect a lot of things, but videos games to this magnitude fails me just by their nature of space and to get the aesthetic and emotional value front hem (plug shit in and play it). I'm willing to bet the auction won't go over a $200k...even at $100k, that's about $9 per game (of course the system changes this) so which means the guy has to hope an investor will see the value of the collection for either nostalgia or some super rare pieces that will demand a bidding war to justify the cost of the the whole flipping collection. He "dug too greedily and too deep..."

    any profit in buying as a lot and breaking it down for resale?

  • Joe Rikel

    GameStop offered 17 dollars in store credit.

  • Jordan Neufeld

    Nah, he worked at gamestop once so they offered 18 dollars in store credit and a demo for Sonic 06

    Yes it's an impressive collection but I wonder how many people actually have room in their house to store all of this? Cause there's no way in hell you just lock this up in some storage facility.

  • The Chadwick

    Sheesh, what a waste of time and money. I mean I love video games but c'mon, everything in moderation. Is this guy happy he spent so much of his life tracking down and collecting video games?

  • JMeyer47

    Clearly he isn't or he wouldn't be selling it. The probably got the valuation of the collection is selling out while he still can. The issue is as someone mentioned, the space it takes up and he's given up on it. He might be better off selling the collections separately (Nintendo, Sony, etc) than as a one massive dump.

    The only people willing to buy it will be those who want to pick it apart to sell as individual pieces or high value collections. So, in a sense, you're right - it was a colossal waste of time.

  • ShartInYourJacuzzi

    Please list the things in your life you consider to be more worthwhile so we can make fun of them.

  • MustacheHam

    Indeed this is impressive. :)

  • iofo61

    At least he is keeping the celibacy.

  • zin

    He no longer needs games now that he's a wizard.

  • Dinger Bell

    Judging by his shirt, he's a Arsenal supporter. Never trust a Arsenal supporter. Or anyone who has a huge collection of games and not a single Xbox game.

  • zin

    PC: Videogaming is dead.
    Arsenal: SEEEEEEEGAAAAAAAAA (is dead)

  • nanCY

    And they're all geeks - Imagine that!

  • ShartInYourJacuzzi

    And you're here... on this site... not only reading but commenting... on GEEKologie.

    Fuckin geek.

  • pmindemann

    This collection would be worth almost twice as much if it had the full, NEO GEO AES catalog (it says there are some games, but none are shown, so it may not be many). Some of those original AES carts are worth over $10,000 for a single game. This is an impressive collection, to be sure, but a full collection for that significant system (one of the longest produced for platforms in history) would have made this truly without peer.

  • Michael Knight

    never heard of most of these platforms. i suppose that's my loss....
