“Super Mario Bros is hailed as the saviour
of the video game industry.”

AIM OF THE GAME
Jump on top of mushrooms and hurdle over obstacles until
you reach a big, spiky turtle and rescue the princess.
DID IT REALLY SELL FOR THAT MUCH?
There’s been some speculation about this sale and others like it, with commentators claiming artificial inflation, citing a recent
US$660,000 transaction for the same game as an example.
WHO THE HECK IS BUYING THIS STUFF?
People like Antonio Romero Monteiro, who owns 20,139 video games – the
largest collection in the world.
The whimsical and perpetually under-siege Mushroom Kingdom.
Super Nintendo World in Osaka, Japan, which is home to
