Fellow gamer, SonicBoom713, started his collection in 1996.
Yeah so ? I know someone with more than a thousand
Whats with the disagrees ? Shane from 1UP/1UP yours have over a thousand games. Its amazing but I don't think this is newsworthy. EDIT: Further more, you don't see him making a post about it.
850 isnt that many but its a lot
I only ask if he's played and beaten them all. Too bad there's no in life gamescore for doing so.
sh*t i have 150 nes games... all bought back in the day too!!!! lol p.s. why dont you buy a decent camera instead of all those games!!!
this has nothing on my collection
Even my sister owns more games than him, which is kind of funny because he got beat by a girl.
my friend has over 1000... so this dont impress me, I have about 20 in total lol
Look at the DVD shelves! They are bowing with the weight of those movies...
Suddenly I don't feel so bad about how often I play video games.
My thoughts exactly
Nice collection, good investment if he ever needed to sell them on ebay. I never counted mine, but I have 5 of those pull out plastic tubs filled.
Buying games is almost never a good investment. Outside of a few games you can't get near what you paid for them. Then count inflation in with it and what you get is even less.
You really should look up definition of "investment"
People start video game stors with their collections "investments".
Instead of buying the digital camera, he should have bought more games/dvds
There might be alot of crappy game in the bunch.
Nope. He doesn't have a PS3.
Nice side story from all of the GTA IV hype that is going around. N4G should consider doing more of these articles about gamers like this. It was nice to see.
Fat american nerd.
Yes you are.:p
now now dave play nice with the retards.
I'm British. Not some McDonalds hoggin overweight american :(
brits have an obesseity problem too... though i confesse you are now less of a douche than you were before. congrats on being born british, its probably ur most redeeming feature.
@tardsimon:...you're not a brit, you're an @sshole!!!!!!!
Met a pieman
And now he's a big fat inner city sweathog with no ball's in his pants
lol at above owned
theres a reason you two have only one bubble each
idiocy aside, this isn't a bandwagon.
"I'm British. Not some McDonalds hoggin overweight american :(" No, you are an idiot who talks like a sissy, drinks tea, refers to cigarettes as "[email protected] I agree with your tastes in gaming, but lay off the American bashing (by the way, I don't dislike British people, I'm just going along with the whole negative stereotype thing).
FWCKING PUSSSY TEA DRINKER! GO PLAY YOUR WITH YOUR QUEEN THAT YOU LOVE SO MUCH YOU BRITISH [email protected]
And that icon STILL doesn't say 360 FAIL! Are you sure you weren't talking about yourself there?
omg I might actually cry...
Can we get ghost something to colour in please?he might have more succes with it.
Seriously… tea drinking and queen loving? As stereotypes go, that’s incredibly sh*t.
i had like 2 000 games, but sold them all becouse i never played them. now i got like 13 ps3 games sold my ps2 games to except the mgs series.
...40 year old virgin?
If so, I put this dude to shame. :P
Me to :) Cheers Rom Nation o_O
Not like anybody forced you to read it pumpkin..
or post for that matter.
Nice collection of 850 still. Some people like baseball cards, some people collect the living piss out of some games.
I have somewhere in the line of 175-200 across like 5 platforms soo, i am put to shame.
thats gonna be worth zillions one day
dude prolly has a thing for sony...
lol 850 games? over 12 years = 70 games a year. or about 6 games a month
in the same time i have accumalated 45 games and thats over 3 consoles and a PC. you sir... are in need of a good woman.
why dont you PM surfergirl? she seems to have a lot of time on her hands.
At first I thought this was really sad but I watched the video and he seems like a nice guy so i'm gonna leave him alone.
I've had 2,000 + games in my life time that I sold.
intriguing... were you buying in bulk to reduce the cost?
ur a tetris powerseller on ebay arn't you?
Lol, this guy almost have 10 times more games than me :P i only have 86 so far (87 if adding GTA IV)
man the dude needs to hit the gym.
Brothersimon: You bet we love eating our McDonalds, while playing PSN games you'll get sometime next year, possibly never.
and i have 3 ps3 games plus about 4 psn games plus 3 psp games.
out with the old and in with the new!
He needs to go outside and walk or somethin.. you can hear him breathing hard just from talkin..
i was about to post about his breathing. He really needs to get out more.....
Wow what a waste of money think he still lives in his parents basement ?
I've seen more.. hell i prolly played more then that.. i just never kept everything... i have started keeping my PS3 games tho...after tommarrow i'll have 40 of them..
i call Bull sh*t ps3 doesn't have 40 games!
With a collection worth that much, I wouldn't prop em on a wall. They would be stacked in shelves, supported by the floor so that no one could knock them over
.......but weren't you just waiting for that shelf to crack? Sorry, thats all I could think of while watching that video. You know, stop buying movies for 5 minutes, drive down to IKEA, and get yourself some shelves that don't suck, lol.
that all american's have ps3's. Only the whiny b!tch population have those.
Big deal, I have 851 games.
comon stop picking on the guy, were all here cos we like gaming, and seeing a collection of games so vast like that is really nice, some people like to collect paintings, some people like to collect pokemon cards, others like to collect games! =]
Wow, I cant believe he kept alot of that crap (the punisher ?!?).
Lol, I doubt 700+ of the 850 are even worth playing anymore...
I think we all feel much better about ourselves after seeing that video.
best quote ever "i guess i'd show you guys how pathetic i am". :D
oh my god, I own like 18. Granted I have gotten rid of many over the years, but nowhere close to that. Maybe why he is fat and skinny and looks to live in a basement.
How is he fat AND skinny?
oops lol I meant must be why he is fat and I AM skinny, lol.
Oh and to everyone saying "leave him alone some people collect games, some paintings etc" yeah well unfortunately people with that many games have no lives, what 850,000 hours of videogames? my god, I wonder if he knows what the sun looks like. and yes I know I'm an ass
WAY 2 GO, IDAHO
Well damn, it puts my collection to shame.
Just wanna say to the guy with this collection, You rock dude, and keep on collecting, i wich i could come over to sit back and enjoy some of the game ans things you got, you rock, big ups. I have my own personaly collection of NES, NSES, N64g, PS2 games but this guy holds the classics, i was pleased by the metal gear Lol. After ps2 and becoming old enough to drive and having access to Funco land, game stop, and EB games, ive kinda stop collecting and I always trade in =( Wahhh. But to any collectors these days that dont trade in, i give big prols, keep collectings, keepp the classics memorable and always remind the youngins where the originals came from like final fantasy which was a NINTENDO!!! classic.
Sadly, I have way more than that. It's too many to count, but I would suggest it would be in the realm of 2000 - 3000.
I am not trying to cut the guy down, it's very impressive, but I wouldn't have thought it much of a story. Surly I am not the only one on here who can whoop that number?
