Video Game Store Closes mid 90s Inventory Found Years Later Factory Sealed SNES Sega Genesis Saturn

Follow along as Gameroom documents this unbelievable collection. This video is just the beginning. We will be revealing more and more and more every week, as we sift through a MASSIVE and perfectly preserved video game hoard.

FIRST OFF: I apologize in advance for the camera work. This was just scrap footage, but we decided to use it anyway. More professional footage coming soon!

When a Nebraska video game store closed in the mid 1990’s its inventory was packed up and placed in storage. Years later this video game archive is rediscovered. Gameroom has been invited to investigate. What we discovered was unbelievable.

The collection includes hundreds factory sealed SNES, Sega Genesis, Saturn, 3DO, and Sega CD games along with 1000 more that have been opened.

  2. Thomas Stewart on June 27, 2022 at 11:05 pm

  3. T.O Collector on June 27, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Cool stuff – but man – learn to focus!

  5. sohchx on June 27, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    I have a very strong feeling that these will suffer the usual fate of ending up on Ebay and into some non collecting investors hands to further artificially inflate going prices as usual

  6. George A on June 27, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    🤤 Promo’SM!!!

    Maybe you can afford to get a haircut now bro

  10. Garry Weston on June 27, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    I remember a hoard like this showing up in the UK 2000ish but it was mainly 80’s home computer games on cassette.

  11. jny78 on June 27, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Crazy hair and a sweater to match! Nice find though

  12. Joe T on June 27, 2022 at 11:20 pm

  13. Cory Clark on June 27, 2022 at 11:21 pm

  14. ART ГEЙMER on June 27, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Please, make video with full game founds in this place.

  15. TechProcess1 on June 27, 2022 at 11:25 pm

  16. Cory Clark on June 27, 2022 at 11:26 pm

  20. wjveryzer7985 on June 27, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    Super nes ZAMN. Genesis was way better!

  21. PantsuGirl on June 27, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Is the first part filmed at the store?

  22. RockManLP_Radio on June 27, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Thank goodness we can play all these without the original carts. This is a scalper’s wet dream.

  23. Joseph Peter Lee on June 27, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    All I desire to purchase mainly is Shining Wisdom(SEGA Saturn exclusive, Working Designs localized and published Stateside), Primal Rage for the SEGA Saturn and PS1, some Working Designs titles such as Silhouette Mirage(PS1), and copies of T2:The Arcade Game(SNES)…. I’d be willing to pay $300 for a sealed copy of Shining Wisdom as well… because i couldn’t afford most of these titles when I was a working teenager during the 1990’s, and I would intend to preserve and enjoy that particular SEGA Saturn-exclusive title especially. Count me in as an instant customer! I haven’t seen such a time-capsule of preservation since the early 2000’s, with the North American SEGA legacy software/hardware from the pre-1995 era being sold via phone-order(that’s right, landline orders!)through a distributor on contract with SEGA Parts(think sealed copies of SEGA Genesis Ghostbusters and Ranger-X, brand new PowerBase convertors, Master System controllers, and SEGA CD memory cartridges, etc.). And of course, there was also GameCave(via GameFan magazine), and GamesExpress formerly based in Queens, New York. If I wanted to purchase such wares as this recent discovery by GameRoom, I’d have to literally hunt down software from Japan vendors on Amazon/JP, and pay a much more significant mark-up in YEN(which I can’t afford)yet this newest revelation of pristine and preserved software for further enjoyment excites me! I yearn to finally play a copy of Elemental Gearbolt(PS1) and Magic Knight RayEarth(SS)possibly, without having to be scalped TOO MUCH for it. Perhaps GameRoom has even discovered some sealed copies of ArtDink’s ‘Tail of the Sun’ for the PS1 as well? My mind and videogame memories are starting to wander in fantastic directions. Saving up for a wish list right now…. Awesome Discovery!!

    How does this happen? Shouldn’t the stock have been sold off to pay debts that the store may have owed? How does it just get put in storage and forgotten? Also, who legally owns it now? (Is it considered abandoned, so finders keepers? Or is it owned by some sort of successor entity to the game store?)

  25. Cory Clark on June 27, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    No mushu rip.

  26. Alstein Einbert on June 27, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    …finally. There has to be MUCH more out there…

  27. Robert Dusek on June 27, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    ….the suspense is killing me, what are y’all going to show us because I’ve seen nothing worth the hype

  28. acedudeism on June 27, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    Holy 💩 Chrono Trigger is worth so much

  29. ART ГEЙMER on June 27, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    Great vid man!

  30. wink west on June 27, 2022 at 11:42 pm

    This is amazing and needs to be put somewhere safe for preservation.

  31. J Cruz on June 27, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    It’s kinda funny that all these boxes & EVERY collectors boxes could be filled with cat turds and it wouldn’t make a lick of difference since they’ll never be opened anyway! Lmao its like having a new car in yur drvway just to show off & display but NEVER intend to drive!

  32. Alex Gonzales on June 27, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    I ordered some games from y’all about 3 months ago I was very happy with the games Idk y’all had a YouTube channel just subscribed your website has good stuff on it 👍

  33. Dev Patel on June 27, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    Unreal

  34. Pedro Pedrosa on June 27, 2022 at 11:45 pm

  35. SuperGameForever on June 27, 2022 at 11:46 pm

  36. Dajaaj on June 27, 2022 at 11:47 pm

    if you want to sell any of this, please send me a message 🙂 I’m not looking for anything extremely rare, just any extra items you may not want or need 🙂 ❤️ no pressure if you’re not interested

  37. QujachoLibertario on June 27, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Emcerio creen esto ? Esta todo muy limpio. Por lo menos tenían que echarle polvo para que sea más creíble jajajjaja ultra fake

  38. Obsessive Compulsive Gamer on June 27, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    So who is this video for? I’m confused at the message here. Was it found for cheap or is it just to show off sealed games. Like you can find these games sealed if you have the money. I’m not quite sure what I’m supposed to be wowed about here😅

  39. TCGenius X on June 27, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Are you planning to sell any of these sealed?

  40. Wilian San - Canal de Entretenimento on June 27, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    Muito Bom mesmo, VERY VERY GOOD!

  41. No Name on June 27, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    Holy fuck the sealed copies of chrono trigger and final fantasy 3….

  42. Alex on June 27, 2022 at 11:53 pm

    So…what about the rest of your findings? There anything worth making a follow-up video for?

  43. yNotWalk on June 27, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    please learn to focus

  44. Jack Sableng on June 27, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    Some of these cartridges are worth thousands of dollars each.

  45. Luca Crivellaro on June 27, 2022 at 11:56 pm

    As a Genesis, Sega Mega CD fan I can say gorgeaus! How to enter a dream for 5 minutes? 10? And you see the best videogames of your life. I love Phantasy Star, Blades of Vengeance and that type characters, masterpieces like Outrunners, Soleil, Lunar (a LOT of anime rpg), Silpheed, Soul Star, Dungeon Explorer, Fifa 95 and for 32X two of the best arcade soccer ever, many Saturn and 32X titles are also digital art for me. Hellfire find me a shooter with a progressive different action like that, Sunset Riders, Sonic 2… My compliments for YOUR collection. THANK YOU so much from Italy. Luca and Cristina.

  46. Felipe S.Carvalho on June 27, 2022 at 11:56 pm

    meu deus que isso, todos lacrados, deve ter dezenas de milhares de dolares nesse lugar, como eles acharam isso, e como ninguem achou isso antes , caramba

  47. Highlander on June 27, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    WOW!

  48. Jules Berhmann Abeille on June 27, 2022 at 11:59 pm

    How can we find those games?

  49. Enthused on June 28, 2022 at 12:01 am

    Can you at least take a break from the cocaine for a minute so you can film a proper video?

  50. Morbid Thrasher on June 28, 2022 at 12:02 am

    I think i saw a sealed chrono trigger but the camera was shaking too much.
