Vidja Games!

Air RaidWell, everyone always told me that video games would make me amount to nothing.  Well, that may be true… but for this guy, they made him very happy.

Tanner Sandlin read about the most rare games on a website and he realized that he had one of those games on the list sitting in his garage.  Air Raid for the Atari 2600 was gathering dust so he pulled it out and put it on eBay.  Well, it sold for $31,600 which made it the second-highest price paid for a video game.

It’s pretty awesome to think about.  This game that was purchased for less than $10 now made $31,600 for this guy.  It goes to show you that people who don’t throw things away could get lucky one day.

And video games are still awesome.
