If the story about the exemployees is true then why isn't it the only game hoarded? If you read a few of his posts on klov you will see he has "fully embraced the lifestyle". It was just another thing to get people off his back, like the first price tag which he later said he made up because he didn't think anyone would be crazy enough to pay it so he made up a crazy number so they would give up and leave him alone.

I don't understand what this has to do with the argument, whether it's a unique case or not.
> I don't see why you think we have a right to them.
I do think we have a right to them but that's not what I'm arguing about. What I'm arguing about is what type of a person does this crap. Getting a bunch of one of a kind cabs and dangling it in people's face when the mame option exists. Go read his posts, he goes around claiming to be an asshole and a dick. Proud of it. I could ask you the opposite, do you think he has a right to them? He should solely control who gets to play them and when because he lucked out on buying some pieces? It's part of our cultural heritage. Yes I think we have a right to them, obviously. Look what I've been doing for the past decade adding games to mame, are you really asking me this...
