Video game collector's new record
An American has set a new world record for having the largest collection of video games.
Michael Thomasson, from Buffalo in New York state, began collecting soon after receiving his first game, Cosmic Avenger, as a Christmas present from his grandparents when he was 12.
Thomasson had to wait until the next Christmas to play it, though, until his parents could get their hands on a system to play it on.
Now, 31 years and roughly 11,000 games later, Mr Thomasson is featured in the just-released "Guinness World Records 2014 Gamer's Edition."
The official number of 10,607 games bests the previous record holder, Richard Lecce of Florida, who had 8,616 games in 2010.
