When a video game store in Nebraska closed its doors for the final time in 1994, its entire stock was packed away and placed in storage, waiting for a new owner. Now, almost 30 years later, the stock has been unearthed and documented – and YouTube channel THISISGAMEROOM was there to record it.
As you can see from the video, the collection includes factory sealed SNES, Genesis, Saturn, 3DO and Sega CD games. It's jaw-dropping stuff.
Highlights include Castlevania: Bloodlines, Brainlord, Breath of Fire II, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Sunset Riders, Contra: Hard Corps, TMNT: Turtles in Time, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy III and Secret of Evermore – we're talking thousands of dollars of 'new' old stock here, mixed in with some more common titles, like FIFA and Madden.
As IGN points out, Turtles In Time is worth over $1,400 on its own in factory-sealed form, while Final Fantasy III can fetch up to $1,200 and Sunset Riders $750. Breath of Fire II is worth upwards of $1,200, and Aladdin – despite being one of the less notable titles here in terms of rarity – can fetch up to $500 if in sealed condition. Meanwhile, Chrono Trigger is worth well over $600 in good, used condition, so the factory-sealed price is going to be much higher than that figure.
It's an incredible find, containing several 'Holy Grails' of North American SNES and Genesis collecting.
