Kind of what I was thinking, haha. The auction that was posted last week was more organized and it has a TON more stuff than this one.

I personally don't understand why someone would want that many games(even if they had plenty of money to spend). Good luck trying to beat all of those games in your lifetime.

I'd never buy it. It's all about representation and that pile looks like there could be rats living in it. Who knows?

90% of it will be trash, in either quality or condition.

To me the pic in the OP is hoarding and not a collection. It looks like this person despises games not loves them, and is putting them aside to throw away.

If a Museum displayed bones like this, people would think it was a graveyard.

Can you blame the guy? There's not that much room in his mom's basement... Regardless the collection will sale but I guarantee the buyer could get him to settle lower because of how shittily he presented it. Some dusting and organizing and he would be able to sell it for quite a bit more.

2 people have made offers on it too...

It still has 11 days, I doubt it will sell and if it does it's gonna need to be alot lower...

Edit:- haha

Just noticed if you look in the first picture in the box, you can see the 3DO in the right bottom corner

If this is your listing I really wasn't trying to insult you. I do feel however that you can blame the guy, first off why is he storing this in his mothers basement? Does he live there? Basements tend not to make good places to store precious electronic collections because of the moisture content they usually have. This is a pile, possibly even a heap at best.
