Favourite game and other highlights

Out of all 20,139 games, Antonio cites Castlevania IV as his favourite, a game he describes as a “masterpiece”.

As you’d expect for a collection of this size, there are several unusual games which you’ll struggle to find anywhere else.

During a tour of his games, Antonio picked out a number of unusual items which adorn his shelves.

One was called Max Basic Rifle Marksmanship Program. It was released by Nintendo exclusively to the US Military for shooting practice and was never sold to the public.

He also owns a complete collection of Nintendo 64DD games which were only released in Japan, a rare Sega Game Gear game called CJ the Elephant and a series of educational Sega Dreamcast games such as Timeless Math which, in Antonio’s words, meant “you’d be able to go into school and play games”.
