Michael Thommason, who is certified as having the world's largest collection of video games, is putting them up for sale. Meaning the buyer isn't just getting a ton of games, they're getting a title as well.

Guinness confirmed Thommason had 10,607 games last year, but he's since picked up a few hundred more, so the winning bidder will be getting over 11,000 video games.

If you're wondering about the condition the games are in, Thommason says "2600+" are "factory shrink-wrapped", while "over 8,300" are complete with box and manual.

It's taken over 25 years to collect all these games, so why sell them now?

I simply have an immediate family and extended family that have needs that need to be addressed. While I do not wish to part with these games, I have responsibilities that I have made to others and this action is how I will help meet them.


I'd say "come on man, stay strong", but my family responsibilities involve occasionally losing the big TV to some Disney cartoon, not finding the space in a house to store 11,000 video games.
