World’s Largest Video Game Collection Up for Sale

Michael Thommason might need to holler at our boy Chris Kooluris; after 25 years of collecting, Michael will be selling his collection of video games. You might think this is some lowly collection that wouldn’t warrant coverage, guess again because homie is certified. Thommason’s collection holds the sole Guinness Record title of  “World’s Largest Video Game Collection.”

You might be sitting back and wondering, “What’s in this collection?” Well, it includes games for SNES, Commodore 64, NES, Wonderswan, Mega Drive, PSP, Vita, Xbox 360, Game Boy, CD-I, and a ton more. A collection this vast covers a lot of bases:

Owner Michael Thommason’s 11,000+ game collection includes complete software catalogues for a range of platforms including Dreamcast, Saturn, Virtual Boy, Lynx, Jaguar, Turbo-Grafx-16 Super CD and Sega CD. It also offers a near complete collection for Sega 32-X, Magnavox Odyssey 2, SuperVision, Vectrex… and even the Gizmodo. There are also titles for just about every game system ever made including Game Boy, SNES, Commodore 64, NES, Wonderswan, Mega Drive, PSP, Vita, Xbox 360, CD-I and many, many, many more. A quarter of the collection is brand new and never opened.

Brand new and never opened? It’s a little hard to believe, but Thommason explains:

I operated seven independent gaming stores during the nineties and have worked for another chain for the last decade,” Thommason said. “I also operated Good Deal Games online since 1998, having thousands of games cross my path. Whenever I purchased a game that did not directly come from the distributor I was able to look through all our inventory and pick out the nicest copy of a game, including grabbing the nicest box and manual. As a result, the games in my collection are mostly PRISTINE.”

Sounds like we’re gonna have some weekend shopping on our hands. If you’re so inclined, you can take part in the auction here!
