Guinness World Record for Largest Video Game Collection is… Yours?

If you’ve ever dreamed of being an official Guinness World Record holder, now’s your chance.  Michael Thomasson has the current distinction of having the World Record for largest video game archive  but is now selling his entire collection including the actual Guinness certificate.  There are over 11,000 games in this auction, ranging from old school systems such as Atari 2600 to mainstream favorites like the SNES and the much derided Virtual Boy.

There are 21 systems for which their entire U.S. library of games are included and 14 other systems that are near complete sets.  All told, the value of this impressive archive is between $700,000 to $800,000.  Visit this link for more information on this vast collection including the complete list of all the games.

The actual auction went live on Wednesday, June 4 and will run until Sunday, June 15.  Starting bid was $1, but that did not last long and as of this post, after 12 bidders the current price is $50,000.  Good luck!
