    The Texas man who holds the Guinness World Record for largest collection of video games said his collection has now grown to 24,268 games. Antonio Romero Monteiro of Richmond was originally awarded the record in December 2021, when his collection totaled 20,139 video games.


    Guinness World Records said Monteiro, whose collection spans more than 100 video game consoles, now owns a total 24,268 games, amassing a collection worth an estimated $2.1 million.

    “The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naďve and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.”
    H.L. Mencken

    I am self-banned from ever owning a video game since I let my oldest fall down the steps in a walker +/-30 years ago - while I was playing River Raid.

    I have a collection of water-skies from the 1950’s to the modern era. Most are single slalom skis, but I also have a few pairs. I have about 50 skies.
