    After 31 years of dedication and roughly 11,000 games later, Michael Thomasson officially has the largest collection of videogames in the world, according to the just-released ‘Guinness World Records 2014 Gamer's Edition.’

    BUFFALO, N.Y. — Maybe it was getting his first videogame, Cosmic Avenger, for Christmas at the age of 12, and then having to wait an entire year for the hard-to-land Colecovision console to play it on that made Michael Thomasson so determined to get his hands on every videogame and system he could find........

    "I have games on cartridge, laser disc. I have VHS-based games, cassette-based games," Thomasson said, standing among the collection that fills the basement of his suburban Buffalo home.

    Along with the games, he has the devices to play them on, not only the Xboxes and PlayStations but obscure ones like the Casio Loopy, the only game system specifically geared toward girls, which came out in Japan in 1995, and the Pippin, a dud released by Apple the same year.
