The world’s largest gaming collection, which had been previously certified by Guinness (not the beer), has a new place to call home.
The collection of games, which contains over 11,000 titles, was sold to GameGavel user peeps_10091970 via online auction for an astonishing price of $750,250. The winning bid, which accumulated over a two-day bidding period, places the average price of the games included at approximately $68 a piece.
Michael Thommason stated via GameGavel that he was forced to sell his prized collection of games due to ongoing family issues.
“I simply have an immediate family and extended family that have needs that need to be addressed,” he wrote. “While I do not wish to part with these games, I have responsibilities that I have made to others and this action is how I will help meet them.”
He added that though he’s sold his collection, he will consider starting his collection once again if/when the time becomes right.

Mike’s Musings: Who says gaming doesn’t pay? Seriously, $750,000 for a gaming collection is nuts. I hope whomever purchased this collection adds to it, and enjoys every minute. You know, before he eventually sells it as well.
