Unfortunately, no Sinistar at this auction but there were a couple of Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man games there. Galaga was represented by only a cocktail, and a Ms. Pac/Galaga reunion game. Only a single Arkanoid was there, in cocktail form. As far as number of games went, this was a bigger-than-usual auction. I was only able to attend through the first row of video games being auctioned, so results are incomplete, but here are the many pictures of the many games at this auction:
There were two conversions that could be classified as "Crimes to Humanity", can you guess which? See if you can spot all the conversions in the below pictures, and send me an e-mail with your vote for the worst conversion of this auction. I'll start a running feature, and the conversion that gets the most votes from each auction will go into a special "Hall of Shame" section on the site. Check out the previous auctions I have pictures from on this site and submit candidates from those as well. Just make sure you tell me the picture name (right click and look for the "View Image" or similar option, it should tell you the file name) and which auction it's from. Submit your entries here.
