That's amazing. I don't know if I should be envious or terrified at the thought of all those games that are just going to be unplayed. I think that if I owned a collection like that the knowledge that I could only scratch the surface in my whole lifetime would send me round the bend.

Does anybody know where I could find his address?
But seriously that is one hell of a collection.

You know that bit at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark?

Can you spot the difference?

That's a nice collection. I respect the guy (or gal) for trying to archive all those games.

I must laugh at all those asking why he doesn't use an emulator and download the games though. If you look, you can clearly see he has a massive collection of CD based games (such as PS1). Those things are not easy to download, even with torrents and such like.

The only concerns I have are
1) Insurance
2) Dampness and humidity, because vapour in the air is a killer.

Wish the pics were high res though.

Anyone want to play "Guess the titles?" ;)

As posted elsewhere, I've been told the guy is/was a games dealer/seller up in Canada so I'm guessing a lot of that was acquired whilst he was in business.

Army Men gets too much flak if you ask me, especially considering the sheer amount of truly bad games that no one ever comments on.
