There are millions of people around the world who love to play video games. However, it is very safe to say that none of these people have the amount of passion for their hobby that Antonio Monteiro does. This is because he has more than 20,000 video games in his collection. The games are for a wide variety of video game systems. He lives in the Houston area and has been collecting video games since he was a little kid. However, he would never trade in his old games like some of his friends. He would simply hold on to the games he had already completed and his collection would continue to grow.
The system that he has the most games for is the original Playstation. He has more than 1,000 games for this particular system. He also has more than 900 games for the Playstation 4. Some of the other highlights of Monteiro’s collection include every game that was ever made in North America for the Xbox 360, Xbox, PSP, Playstation Vita, Playstation 2 and Playstation 3. His collection also boasts over 100 different consoles. This gives him the ability to play any game he wants at any time.
Some people in his family say that his obsession with video games is out of control. They cite the fact that his home is barely big enough for the massive collection he has assembled. However, Monteiro believes that his hobby is harmless because he is not hurting himself or anybody else. He says there are much worse things he could be doing with his spare time than collecting video games. His collection is so gigantic that it attracted the attention of the Guinness Book of World Records. They sent a couple of their representatives to Monteiro’s home to certify his collection. It is now officially the biggest video game collection in the history of the world.
Monteiro said that he did not set out to have the biggest video game collection ever. It just sort of happened. He wanted to have a library of games available where he could play any game he wanted at any time. He also likes a wide variety of genres. Therefore, he would want to have every game that was released. He said that he is seriously thinking about renting a storage space for his collection. His only concern is keeping the space the right temperature so the games won’t get damaged.
