The world of video game collecting can be highly competitive. Game cartridges and discs from earlier gaming eras, especially if they are still in their original packaging and in excellent condition, can command high prices at auctions. Due to the limited number of available copies, the value of these items is established when they are discovered and begin to change hands. Recently, a fortunate group of game resellers in Nebraska stumbled upon a massive collection of pristine software.

Gameroom, a company specializing in the resale of video game hardware and software in Nebraska, received news about an extraordinary find at a local storage facility. Upon investigation, they uncovered a treasure trove of untouched inventory belonging to a now-defunct local gaming retailer from the mid-90s. The storage unit was filled with boxes containing mint condition, boxed editions of games for the SNES, Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn, 3DO, and Sega CD. Among them were numerous unsold copies of various unremarkable sports titles, which was not surprising.

Among the most valuable discoveries were boxed editions of SNES classics such as Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy III, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time. Each of these titles holds a value of over $1,000 in the collectors’ market. Gameroom is currently engaged in the meticulous process of cataloging and conserving each game individually. Once this process is complete, they will provide an estimate of the total value of the collection, which is anticipated to be substantial.
