Expensive video game collection is disposed of by mother
On Twitter, a Gamer from New York complains the loss of his video game collection. As VG 247 reports, he jokes in a now deleted tweet that he now had to kill someone. His mother had thrown the entire collection in the trash even ago.
If you are interested in retro games, you can see the book retrogrames and computer stories from the 80s and 90s on Amazon.
Part of the collection had been over 500 games for the PlayStation 1, half of whom had been packed original. Also rare retro consoles have fallen victim to the cleanup. According to its own information, the collection had been worth more than $ 500,000:
Today I found out that you have thrown my Atari, Coleco, Intelli, Famicom, S Famicom, TGFX, PCE, NG AES, Megadrive, Master System and virtually any system and game that I did not take out of the house
Communication is everything
The collector should have better discussed the value of the games and consoles with his mother before he plans them as additional storage space. For ignorant, the old plastic boxes otherwise only act like useless electric script.
As if the loss would not be bad enough, his mother also disposed of his drums, his skateboards as well as a large cartoon collection. The family should definitely work on their communication.
