A video game reseller found hundreds of rare Nintendo and SEGA games

Who would've thought Heaven was located inside a Nebraska storage facility?

Nebraska-based video game reseller Gameroom struck gold when they discovered hundreds of rare games in a storage facility.

The collection includes a variety of factory-sealed games for Super Nintendo. In addition, there are tons of games for SEGA Genesis, SEGA Saturn and SEGA CD. Gameroom even found 3DO games as well.

All the games originated from a video game store that closed down in 1994. Until Gameroom discovered the collection, the games remained untouched inside a Nebraska storage facility. You can watch the Gameroom staff showcase some of the games they found in a recent vlog on YouTube.

Gameroom’s exciting treasure hunt

Although the Gameroom staff jokes about the massive amounts of NBA and Madden games, they state there are equally as many valuable finds. Several boxes contain extremely rare games complete with factory packaging.

Some of the most valuable titles they found include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time, Final Fantasy III and Sunset Riders. In addition, they also obtained a copy of Chrono Trigger on SNES. That game alone is valued at over $2,400.

Even some of the less valuable games like Aladdin for SNES and Contra Hard Corps for Genesis are still worth a couple hundred dollars each. Gameroom currently has no plans to reveal the overall value until after everything’s been preserved and documented. However, IGN estimates the total value to be well over $10,000.

How much do you think the total collection is worth? As always, let us know your thoughts down below!
