A New York man is the newly crowned world record holder for having the largest collection of video games.

Michael Thomasson of suburban Buffalo says he began collecting soon after receiving his first game, Cosmic Avenger, as a Christmas present from his grandparents when he was 12.

Thomasson had to wait until the next Christmas to play it, though, until his parents could get their hands on the hot-selling Colecovision system to play it on.

Now, 31 years and roughly 11,000 games later, Thomasson is featured in the just-released "Guinness World Records 2014 Gamer's Edition."

The official number of 10,607 games bests the previous record holder, Richard Lecce (LESS'-eeh) of Florida, who had 8,616 games in 2010.
