Do you love retro video games, or video games in general? Ever wanted to visit a museum dedicated to such things? Well let's take that even further and see if you've ever wanted to own your own video game museum. Now you've got you chance as a man on eBay is selling his astonishingly massive video game collection (from over 30 years of collecting).
The seller on eBay even calls himself *videogame.museum* and it's for a good reason. He's parting with a massive 30 year collection of games that consist of pretty much everything a gamer could ever hope to want. Consisting of over 7,000 pieces, it's a drool worthy sight to see. Just check out some of these pics:
Personally, all that Metal Gear and Mother stuff gets me to salivating, but unfortunately he's only selling it in one shot. But why on Earth would someone part with it? Here's his explanation:
I just have too much things and the space to store them is finished long ago... also I realized that if I want to play at least half of my games, I should live two or three entire human life...
