This Man Owns The Largest Street Fighter Gaming Collection In The World


Clarence Lim owns the largest Street Fighter gaming collection in the entire world, according to the latest edition of the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition. The man has a collection amassed over nearly 20 years, and was even featured as part of Capcom’s documentary video for Street Fighter’s 25th anniversary.


Just how much Street Fighter-related gaming memorabilia does Lim own? The total count, he tells Capcom Unity, comes to 2,723 individual items—and that doesn’t count associated franchises like Final Fight or Rival Schools, which weren’t taken into account by Guinness.


Lim doesn’t just collect Street Fighter-related goods either, he tells Capcom.


“Between my wife and I, we collect DarkStalkers, Final Fight, The Legend of Zelda, Fire Emblem, Star Fox, Killzone, Katamari, Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney, Devil May Cry, the “Souls” series, and a few others,” Lim says. “Oh, and anything from Naughty Dog. Love them. You could say we’re huge Capcom and Naughty Dog supporters.”
