World’s Largest Video Game Collection

Michael Thomasson

The world’s largest video game collection is owned by Michael Thomasson, who lives outside of Buffalo, NY. Guiness counted the collection at 10,607 games.

It has since grown to more than 11,000. Thomasson owns titles from all the obvious platforms, but also plenty of obscure stuff like games for the Casio Loopy and Apple Pippin, as well as laser disc and VHS-based games.

Interestingly, Thomasson has sold his collection — which he started in 1982 — twice. Most recently, he sold it to finance his wedding. He’s rebuilt it each time, spending only $3,000 a year on games. So, he never pays full price for one.

The collection is estimated to be worth $700,000.
