Right, because he magically brought all that with no money.

Still think this is insanely brilliant tho. Some items here might not be even remembered in years to come, so he kinda has his own little museum which is cool.

He didn't 'bring' anything. He may have magically bought it with no money.

But I imagine he tried to find money by running round outside with that sword and slashing away at grass/throwing rocks for hours :P

It does mention he has the largest "gaming" not "Nintendo" collection in the world, but its obvious he clearly loves his Nintendo more than anything else!
