Need a bigger backlog of games to work through? Michael Thommason is selling his 11,000-plus game collection, a treasure hoard officially recorded as the largest in the world by Guinness Records, on GameGavel.

So 11,000 is a big number and all, but what do you get with that many zeroes? For starters, you get every game released in the US for the: 3DO, Action Max, AGP X-System, Atari 5200, Atari 7800, Atari Jaguar, Atari Jaguar CD, Atari Lynx, Buzztime, Captain Power, Game Boy Advance e-Reader, Neo-Geo Pocket Color, Nintendo Virtual Boy, NUON, Sega CD, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, Tapwave Zodiac, Tiger Game.Com, Turbo-Grafx-16 CD and Turbo-Grafx-16 Super CD.

Finally, you can get that copy of Blue Stinger you always dreamed of!

Thommason writes on his GameGavel listing that he is not exiting the hobby, but is selling his collection due to "immediate family and extended family that have needs that need to be addressed." As of this writing, the top bid is $50,000, with nine days left before the auction closes.
