Guiness World Record For 8000 Nintendo Games

/ 3 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.

    Either the flatfoot pay is excellent or the bribes are good in the UAE. Either way it sound like you’d wanna be a cop if you’re a normal 9-5 citizen.

      A member of the Dubai police force can make up towards 500.000 AED a year if he’s worked there for 10 years. I mean, they drive multiple luxury sports cars converted to police cars for crying out loud:

      Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
      Ferrari FF
      Chevrolet Camaro SS
      Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
      Bentley Continental GT
      Limited edition Aston Martin One-77
      Ford Mustang GT
      BMW M6 Gran Coupé
      Brabus G63 AMG
      Bugatti Veyron
      Audi R8
      Nissan GT-R
      Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG
      McLaren MP4-12C (only used for tourists-related crimes).
