A dedicated gamer is parting ways with their massive collection of over 140 titles and 14 systems spanning multiple console generations. Just like any other hobby, gaming has its share of devoted fans who acquire and show off impressive collections of games, consoles, and other merchandise from particular franchises or platforms.
Many of these collections are centered around a particular console from the past, like multiple versions of the Nintendo GameCube or the various LEGO games released on the Nintendo Wii U. Others are focused on a particular game or franchise, with fans gathering multiple copies of Persona 5 and its many spin-offs or framing the various Legend of Zelda games on their wall for all to see. Finding older consoles and games to add to these collections is usually a matter of searching through yard sales or online venues like eBay, but one devoted gamer has been building their assortment of systems and titles for the past couple of decades.

A Pokemon fan is showing off their impressive collection of cards, featuring copies of each of the franchise’s original Pokemon.
Earlier this week, a Reddit user named raisedbytides announced that they were selling their large collection of games and consoles for both financial reasons and to make room for other hobbies. They say that these games have been collected and played for over 20 years, but that they have been sitting around unused for a long time. As shown in the image they shared on r/gaming, this collection consists of over 140 games and 14 consoles, including the first four PlayStation consoles, Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
Some of the games that can be seen as part of raisedbytides’s incredible collection are Super Mario 64, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, Minecraft, Halo 5: Guardians, and Alan Wake. There is also a small handful of Nintendo Amiibo figures featuring classic Super Smash Bros characters. Throughout the comment section of raisedbytides’s post, other Reddit users have shared advice about the best way to sell this collection and personal stories of passing on their own old games and consoles to friends who needed a new Xbox 360 or selling their original PlayStation titles.
Even after selling their massive collection of old titles and systems, raisedbytides says that they’ll still be able to enjoy gaming on their PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, VR headset, PC, and Steam Deck, so their gaming hobby will likely continue well into the future. In the meantime, they hope that others will get some enjoyment out of their collection of old games and consoles, which contains various titles from the past few decades of gaming.
