Man Gets Six Figures for Video Game Collection

Many of us love keeping all of our video games around in order to revisit favorites or just to show off, but sometimes games end up collecting you. I think that's what happened to Michael Thomasson, a video game fanatic with a Guinness World Record for the largest video game collection.
