Man sells insane game collection on Ebay

11:41 AM on 11.06.2007 // Colette Bennett

Don't get me wrong, having a huge game collection is a badge of honor. But there's having every console ever made, and then there's having four of every console ever made. Somewhere in there, the line between fervent collecting and twitchy obsessive-compulsive disorder is crossed. Regardless though, this gentleman is selling a crapton of games and systems on Ebay in one bulk package.

Bidding is currently at $3,550 with 27 bids and his Buy it Now price is sitting pretty at $10,979. Here are the systems listed according to his Ebay description page:

The following systems are represented in this auction: Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Atari Jaguar, Atari Lynx, Coleco ColecoVision, Coleco Gemini, Coleco Telstar, Commodore 64/128, GCE Vectrex, Mattel Aquarius, Mattel Intellivision, Mattel Odyssey 2, Microsoft Xbox, Microsoft Xbox 360, APF TV Fun, Miscellaneous Handheld Games, Miscellaneous PC Games, SC Eight Thousand, Sega Pods, Miscellaneous TV Games, NEC Turbo Duo, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Game Boy Advance, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo NES, Nintendo Nintendo 64, Nintendo Super NES, Nintendo Virtual Boy, Nintendo Wii, Sega Dreamcast, Sega Game Gear, Sega Genesis, Sega Master System, Sega Saturn, SNK Neo Geo, SNK Neo Geo Pocket, Sony Playstation, Sony Playstation 2, Texas Instruments TI 99/4A, VM Labs Nuon.

Add in all the games and you have a total of 1,768 items up for grabs. It's total madness...but still, I can't help but wonder why anyone would sell a collection that's taken them 30 years to compile. In my mind, selling something like this would be selling a part of my soul. I suspect bankruptcy and loose women to be behind all this somehow.

Tearaway was cute, but it was kinda short and underwhelming to me. I would recommend paying around $20 for it if you value your money.

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.
