If you’re the kind of person who has spent approximately 8,000 hours blowing into a beat-up copy of Ninja Gaiden, if you’re the type of now-grown gamer who uses the “Konami code” during sex, if you’re the exact brand of 8-bit-loving madman who has actually figured out how to land in Top Gun, this one’s for you: A Milwaukee man is selling his incredible, ridiculous, glorious retro Nintendo collection on eBay. Included in the haul are more than 700 NES, SNES, and N64 games, original World of Nintendo displays (World of Nintendo Clock, World of Nintendo Globe, Mario/Yoshi display, etc.), sealed and boxed systems, and much more. The asking price? $29,900. Or best offer.

“Between the talk of having kids and moving to a house with no dedicated video game room, I’ve decided to sell my collection,” says seller Charles Amble, who likely can get past that rocket sled stage in Battletoads in his sleep. “For the past 10 years I’ve spent weekends at garage sales and making Craigslist deals, and this is the result. I hope my collection goes to someone who enjoys it as much as I have.”

Amble’s treasure trove of ’80s and ’90s gaming is truly a sight to behold—and no, he isn’t selling anything individually. So if you’re dying to get your hands on a $50 boxed copy of, say, Mega Man 2 (the best one, duh), you’re gonna have to throw down an extra $29,850. Totally worth it, though.
