they might be overcharging a bit

Did you see the part about needing lorries to transport them all? Its ridiculous, you could buy a bloody GAME store for that much.

i just can't believe how much they want i think they've gone a bit mad! :mad:

No-one would ever buy that unless they were really rich. Bill Gates rich. I mean, $250,000?? They're only games. I mean, people only really get them for fun.

ive bought games from Eli before. He told me he got the games from a storage house he had. I had no idea that storage area was that big :D

Hmm, and no one's even started the bid yet.

If anyone does it'll be some museum or something. But he says there are 250, 000 games. He's a fool. Sell the rare ones (LEC / Sierra first editions) for more, then sell the cruddy ones in bulk.

250,000 games for $250,000....That's...wait...$1 a game!

Some suit who used to type in hours of code in order to play for 5 minutes due to unfortunate power cuts >:] Will buy them.

I'd buy it them if I was hideously rich.

It's just too HARD to be hideous with a face like this :)

Well, if it's an emergentcy. *Hands LucasTones 250,000 and is now pennyless*

Look closer. 250,000 games with 20,000 unique titles. That's terrible.

Thanks SamnMax!
*runs off to ebay*
*2 thugs appear*

"50% is pre-1990. 49% is 1990-1993"

Come on. Even half of 20,000 games is 10,000 games in 3-4 years. 6.85 games a day being released in a time that saw some very good titles. But, come on, it was also a time when only like one out of ten people had a computer (maybe more, dunno). 80% of the software are games? A big piece must be shareware.

oh and don't forget this:

"- Some recent winning auction prices: Starflight ($45), Hollywood Hijinx ($56), Zork I ($71), Leisure Suit Larry I ($122.50), Welltris ($62.50)."

Whoever did pay $122.50 for Larry I is a complete retard unless of course it has been signed by Al Lowe etc.
You can get the first version with the napkin for like $20-30.

I had nice deals with elit aswell.
I guess he/she wants to get rid of it all in one go.
Selling them individually is a BIG hassle...

I decided not to bother getting all the sierra games in original boxes. I don't like them all that much, and there are too many of them. I got the collection packs though. I just need the Roberta Williams collection, somehow.

Well, everybody, you may get another chance to grab some of the games, since the auction closed with 0 bids. I was a so very amazed no one would buy it. It's a steal for only 250 grand...
