World’s Largest Video Game Collection: No, It’s Not Your Steam Library

by Lambert Varias

So you think you have a huge backlog of games? Video game historian Michael Thomasson has to play two full games each day for the next 15 years if he hopes to get through all of his. That was back in September, when the Guinness World Book of Records recognized that the New Yorker had the world’s largest collection of video games at 10,607 distinct games.

That’s the record holder in the badass Intellivision t-shirt. As of November 28, when he uploaded the video below, Michael already had almost 12,000 different games. He also owns more than a hundred game consoles, systems and whatever you call the Virtual Boy is. The thing is, he would probably have more games, but he sold his previous major collection to pay for his wedding. Awww.

Check out the Associated Press’ feature on Michael and his own writeup on YouTube for more on his collection.
