Brett Martin, a 31-Year-Old man from Colorado, USA has been recognised by Guinness World Records for having World's largest collection of video-game memorabilia, with 8,030 items of merchandise.
Brett, a web designer, was given his first item (a Mario figurine) by his parents when he was just 8 years-old, however he only started collecting 12 years ago when he "discovered eBay".
In that period he has amassed a collection worth in excess of $100k. Brett, who is married with children, says: "Many of my friends know I'm a gamer, but I guess after this they'll realise just how passionate and obsessed I am!"
According to Guinessworldrecords.com; Brett's achievement is one of hundreds of new videogaming records which have made it into Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition 2013 which is out now.
