Last week we were thrilled to take a first glimpse at the 21 boxes of games donated to UCSC via the UC San Diego library. With each box containing just under 100 games, we're expecting around 1,600 games to be added to UCSC's already expansive video game collection, hosted in the Science and Engineering Library. (If you haven't explored that collection yet, we highly recommend you do, by the way.) This donation includes original Playstation games, Playstation 2 games, and the occasional PSP game and random other treasures.
