How many games is considered a collection?

This is such an awesome collection. You should check out Last Gamer (Joel Hopkins) YouTube channel. He got some awesome stuff.

Does he ever have time to enjoy them all and what games do you play the most
bEN-OFFICIAL MASSIVE (2 months ago)
On Last Gamer he says someone in America has taken the Guinness world record title from him and by watching Johns vids I've noticed he was getting more n more for he's collection though he's probably always doing that but I reckon John's got the title. Who else would it be? Also I'm wondering does he have a system for playing games? I'd have to get some kind of system going just so I don't keep starting heaps of games and not either finishing them or not giving them a fair play. U can write games off really easy. I reckon you've gotta play for a good hour or more depending on the game. Sorry bout my ramble here, just a fan!!!

Stoked to see a video with three of my favourite video game nerds together. Saw the comment by MJR’s too which added to the cool factor. There are times where the filter makes IJH look like he is in the seventies and the games around him are in the present. This video made my night. Thanks gents.

I found the hoarder joke funny. But for people saying he's a hoarder. That's not true he has his collection in one section of his house and neatly displayed it's not put away in boxes stacked throughout his whole house. it's a collection.

This just put my little collection of about 70 titles for each NES, Sega Genesis, SNES, N64, PS1 to shame. I'm always living in basement apartments and my stuff keeps getting damaged from environment VERY depressing. Any tips on keeping a room with the right conditions? What is the temp/ humidity of that room?

Guys, LG doesn't count. He has numerous industry connects and is a multi millionaire. At that point it's pretty worthless to try and compare. It just becomes boring.

stuff like this is why i hate myself for getting rid of some of my games and systems. back in 2000. my buddy sold me his snes and 12 games for $40. it had super mario and the remake of the 3 mario games on nes. secret of manna. and a few others and earthbound. i had that for a long time and played the crap out of it. sold system and games but kept earthbound. a year later lost it at a friends house and never saw it again

This guy has more complete retro sets, though? I don't think Last Gamer has 26 complete retro sets (Last Gamer has many complete sets that are modern and retro). Although, Last Gamer does have more overall. I mean, Last Gamer has literally filled a house with his collection, whereas, this is just one room inside a house.

I actually found a vectrex this past yardsale sale season. I actually got pretty lucky because I was looking for a flea market that was advertised on the internet and me and my friend got lost and ended up in Connecticut we are from Massachusetts so we were about a thousand feet into Connecticut about to turn around and some guys driveway when we realized who is setting up a yard sale. We were the first customers of the day and the gentleman running the yard sale must have been 85 years old so I wasn't going to ask but something inside me told me to explore further. You'd be surprised how much asking helps out because he was not going to put the metric system out that day as he didn't think anybody would want it. So I asked and he went upstairs for about 10 minutes and came back and goes well this is all I have and he showed me with four games and offered to sell it to me for $5 before he could even finish this sentence I had my money out. So I snagged Avec checks with for games not even really realizing what I had in my possession at that point until later when I looked up the price and was floored. So I kept this system for about 3 days before throwing it on Craigslist just to see what I could get so in the end I ended up trading it for an ice blue and 64 console in the Box with Mario 64 boxed as well as Star Fox the big box box and a copy of Conker's Bad Fur Day loose and he also gave me $185 cash. So I feel I did not do too bad whatsoever on that sale. But it just goes to show you how fun yard sale and can really be you never know what you are going to run into out there in the wild. I found this completely by mistake. My other good find was at a local Goodwill down the street from my house. And they had a box of boxed Nintendo games listed at $10 a piece as well as a miracle piano in box for the original Nintendo. So it was $100 price tag on the Miracle piano and $10 a piece on a box of box Nintendo games there was about 25 in the box so I was looking at a $350 purchase which I could not do. So I went up to the lady and figured I would buy a few Nintendo games when I came across a game that had no price sticker on it I asked if this one also $10 and her being new replied to me oh the whole box is $10 not just that one game. So I snagged up the box quicker than you could even blink. Some notable games were a box copy of Mega Man 6 a box copy of gold cart Zelda as well as a box copy of contra and many more. The pricecharting value for this box was about $780 so I went to my local retro game store down the street from my house and sold it to them that day for about $325 and I got to keep the Mega Man the Contra and the Zelda for myself so for $10 I got $325 plus three great box games. So afterwards I went back to the Goodwill the miracle piano was still there and they were doing scratch tickets for my first purchase where you could scratch off and win prizes at the Goodwill. Well I wanted to talk price at day which was 50% off your next purchase so I use that card ended up getting the miracle piano for $50 boxed. So overall I spent $60 and after everything was said and done I had about $275 prophet the Mega Man 6 boxed Zelda boxed and the Contra boxed as well as the miracle piano in box and I only spent $60. So those two events with some of the best in my video game hunting career. Thank you for the constant inspiration John.

When I saw this thumbnail I was all like "Is that the Immortal John Hancock" and then it was. I was actually introduced to his stuff through Metal Jesus Rocks. Who I found either through the sidebar on an LGR video or the sidebar on a Barnacules video.

Nice collection. I've been collecting for around 39 years now myself. Early on I made the decision to only collect the games I enjoy to play. I really only collect mint condition, complete games too. I was lucky enough to have bought about 90% of my collection (4,000ish games, 250+ systems) at the time when they were still being sold as new. I feel bad for collectors just starting up now. Especially with Nintendo games. The prices have gone nuts in the past 10 years.
Collin McRae (1 year ago)
Seemed kinda weird that you just brushed John Riggs off like that. He's been a frequent guest on Metal Jesus's channel as well, has an impressive collection himself, and he has a Youtube channel. Most people familiar with Hancock, and Metal Jesus, are familiar with Riggs as well. You probably had Radical Reggie holding a mic or something in this video, lol.

John is a very smart guy to collect in a time that nobody cares about collecting. The same as a guy I know that created websites in the nineties and sold it years later for huge amount of money. I preferred drinking beer and smoking stuff. Too bad

Is John Hancock his real name? Isnt that slang for a signature? Why do big guys tuck their shirts in? Doesn't it just accentuate the belly? Will these questions ever get answered? I'm hungry?
