A pair of YouTuber game hunters found themselves in a very messy room that had been locked for 20 years. But amid the trash, they found a treasure trove of factory-sealed video games, which includes mainstream hits like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, cult classics like Drakengard for PS2, and some very weird stuff like a limited edition Resident Evil 4 chainsaw controller.
Aimee and Korbin, who do not want to share their last names, are the full-time reselling duo behind the YouTube channel Cheap Finds Gold Mines, and usually make their discoveries through Goodwills and yard sales. But after a spectator tipped them off about a house that was “kind of nasty,” the pair got themselves seeking through a very gross environment like Uncharted’s Nathan Drake and finding all kinds of video games, collectibles, and Blockbuster VHS tapes. They’ve made three videos about the hunt so far.
The second video, which you can see above, is not for the faint of heart. The house for all purposes and intents has no walkable space, as any trace of it is littered with ceiling debris and cardboard boxes distorted by time and packed with cockroaches. The pair are not pickers by trade, and admit they were ill-prepared for their hunt when they came to the house sans gloves and wearing shorts and informal shoes.
“Once we got there and we saw the quality of the stuff, I was not gonna go home and change,” Korbin said in the video.
