Buffalo Man Has Largest Video Game Collection in the World

A Buffalo, New York man has found himself in the Guinness World Records 2014 Gamer's Edition for accomplishing something he loves: collecting video games and video game systems. Thirty-one-year-old Buffalo, New York resident Michael Thomasson began collecting games and game systems after receiving his first game, Cosmic Avenger, as a Christmas present from his grandparents when he was 12. Ironically enough, he didn't get to play that game until a year later when his parents could afford to buy the system. But these events began a love affair between Thomasson and interactive entertainment. He has been collecting video games ever since.

Thomasson was featured in the Guinness World Records 2014 Gamer's Edition for his collection of 11,000 games and systems. The official number of 10,607 games enabled him to take the previous title holder, Richard Lecce of Florida, who had 8,616 games in 2010.
