You never know what you’ll find in a storage unit. Sometimes people use their units to store worthless furniture; sometimes they fill them with priceless antiquities. And, as Gameroom has discovered, they sometimes put away hundreds of games for old-school consoles.
Gameroom describes itself as “a modern video game store/e-commerce hybrid”, and it recently discovered a storage unit that was allegedly used by a now-closed Nebraska game store to store “hundreds” of ” SNES, Sega Genesis, Saturn, 3DO and Sega CD games.”
Gameroom’s video features classic games like Final Fantasy III, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time and Chrono Trigger for the SNES; Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Gunstar Heroes for the Sega Genesis; and dozens of other titles for additional consoles.
These games can be worth hundreds or, in some cases, thousands of dollars. (IGN Remarks that a graded copy of Chrono Trigger alone can fetch $2,400.) Games that cost between $50 and $80 when they were stockpiled are now worth more than 10 times that amount to collectors.
