Guiness World Record For 8000 Nintendo Games
Ryan Simmons / 5 years ago
33-year-old Ahmed bin Fahad from the United Arab Emirates has been given a Guiness World Record for the “largest collection of Nintendo Entertainment System paraphernalia”.
Even though his record only fits his NES collection, he claims to have over 8000 games, covering Nintendo’s ancient arcade cabinets, the Famicom, NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii and Wii U. He also has a giant collection of Game Boy and Nintendo DS games.
Fahad, who is a police officer by day, estimates to have spent over £260,000 on his collection.
“It is a very expensive hobby, but I wanted to set this record to give a message to the world that Arabs are not only interested in speeding cars and flashy things”.
I guess this puts my paltry N64 collection to shame.
