The world’s largest video game collection is up for auction over on Game Gavel. There are over 11,000 games in the collection, and it has been recognized by The Guinness Book of World Records. Bidding for the collection is just over $100,000 at the moment.
You can see panoramic views of Michael Thomasson‘s collection here, here, here and here. They all look like they’re in good condition, so I imagine that they all should work. I love playing retro video games, and there are a lot here that would be really fun to revisit. This is a breakdown of games that are included:
