Before I list the goodies from the post’s title, I want to show this massive Computer Game PC collection. What’s cool about this auction is that it’s 100% PC games. When the heck have you ever seen a Massive PC collection like this? I know I haven’t. The dude’s got 1,446 titles and probably more if he miss-counted along the way (you tend to after 100 🙂 ). Like the title says, “A lifetime of video gaming awaits you“, but with this collection you’ll need 2 or 3 lifetimes to play and beat every game. PC games in the 80’s and 90’s were far more superior than console games. I haven’t been up-to-date with my PC gaming but the console games have somewhat caught up to PC gaming which is why I’ve stopped focusing on PC gaming all together. Of course my opinion is subjective and arguable to the hardcore PC gamer, and I am sure there are technical advancements solely on the pc itself, but when it comes down to it I’m a controller guy and as the French say I like to “plug & play la“.
You seriously need to check out the photos, the dudes dressed up in a suit and posing like it’s his wedding day. Classy! Exactly how I would do it if I let everything go. In the first photo the gentleman is posing in front of his collection, one hand on his
bride games while the other hand is calmly tucked in his pocket… smooth, very smooth. You can tell the seller truly treated his games as if they were alive and walking about, living, drinking, speaking, breathing…. We’ve posted many of these auctions before and I know it’s one of Kenji’s favorite type of auctions to post simply because the mystery, the confusion, and the awe behind the auction. We always wonder what goes through the minds of these sellers? What brought them to this? Who or what made them want to sell their life long efforts of building such a monstrous fort? I think the seller wearing his suit like that paid a little tribute to Rod Serling, host of the Twilight Zone show as if to mock us, letting us know we’ll never figure out the real motive for selling his games.
We will never know the reason, and although some sellers have the guts to spill the beans, most simply say it bluntly, “Time to move on”. For this reason it’s why I applaud one of VGA’s sister sites; VideoGameMM.com. Over there you have massive collections on showcase and never have I seen or even read of a member letting go of their collection. Especially the sites owner, Nightram, who just recently was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for the Largest Video Game Merchandise Collection in the world! I applaud him for staying with his passion and keeping all of his collectibles tight; keeping what makes him happy. In the end the seller’s of these type of massive auctions do what’s best for them and in conclusion, although we tend to question why let such an achievement go so easily we still respect it and for that reason I am listing this auction here hoping that perhaps one of you might be interested in building an instant PC Gaming Collection.

Dragon Quest Music Box Complete Set Treasure Chest SQUARE ENIX X 7 8 9 3DS Wii – Seller says: “elling here is an ultra rare music box set for Dragon Quest games. There are 4 music boxes, each holding a different tune from one of the Dragon Quest games. I’ve aquired this from a collector in Japan who was a Dragon Quest nut and he told me that he ordered these music boxes online. I am not familiar with the DQ games and purchased these music boxes in order to build my collection, but I do know one of the tunes are from Dragon Quest VIII. These music boxes play a beautiful tune and having them all go at the same time is quite a treat! This would make a great addition to your DQ collection and it truly a rare find.”

Donkey Kong Country Prize Jacket SNES DKC Nintendo Ultra Rare Contest Exclusive – Seller says: “Selling here is a limited edition Donkey Kong Country Prize Jacket. I won this jacket at my local GameZone store a long time ago when DKC was released on the SNES. It was an exclusive Canadian tournament in which all major Video Game stores would hold the tournament (GameZone, MicroPlay, ProGamer Games, etc..). I remember it was near Christmas time because it was snowing outside when my dad dropped me off at GZ. Prior to the tourny all the participants played a bunch of regular NES games so that we can be qualified for the tournament. There was 6 of us that made it to the finals and I ended up coming in second place. I don’t remember what the first place prize was (probably a brand new DKC game with some merch), but I came in second place during the time attack. The player who was able to finish the 1st level in the least amount of time with the most points would win. Supposedly not every shop had these jackets and that there were other types of prizes, but from my research I found that the jacket is the rarest prize from the 94 tournament. The jacket I have is in great shape with no faults (please check pictures). Simply put, if you did not live in Canada during the time, you did not get this jacket. It’s a beautiful piece to add to your DKC collection”.
