The lights are on
Often called Game Informer’s Library of Congress, the Vault is hands-down the best part of the office. With over 11,000 games currently stored inside and still growing, it really is a sight to behold that each and every editor shows off with nerdy pride. As part of our 200th issue celebration, we’re finally unbolting the locks and giving you the full reveal of everything inside. Above you will find a full, one gigabit interactive 3D image that now only allows you to look around on your own, but zoom in to see just part of our huge collection. To the right and immediately below, we’ve compiled some pretty cool stats and broken down the totals by platform. And finally below, you will find a full, HD video tour with Executive Editor Andrew Reiner and Media Editor Nick Ahrens. They take a walk through the entire collection and point out just some off the coolest items inside. So what are you waiting for? Click the magic link below and start exploring. Note to users, there is no commenting on the special edition Vault page so this is your place to sound off.

This is one of the coolest things I've seen on this site. Wish I could see a little bit better, but I understand what I gigantic file it already is. Thanks so much for this peek into your office!
Here's hoping that it's flame retardant. Because ***, that would suck.
New here, and I love what I see! However, why is there only one, yes one Sega Master System game? I mean, you have amassed a great collection and all, but to overlook the best (yes, I mean what I say) 8-bit system is just plane sacrilegious!
Naaaaaa not fair :(
Hoooly crap that is the coolest thing I've seen today! (Yesterday was the tauntaun sleeping bag LOL!!) Some of those games have to be crap though but still! 11,719 games?!?!? That's awesome!!
I've never felt such an intense and pure feeling of jealously in my life.
That is amazing. Do you guys ever go in there, dust off those "retro" systems and pop in some classics?
It's really cool! I've always wanted to see this vault of yours.
Wow. I feel...Priveleged.Thanks a ton, GI. You definetly made my day with this one.
Oh man.... That is probably the coolest thing I've ever seen. I've never felt such a sense of nostalgia related to video games. I haven't seen a Game Genie in fifteen years! Really interesting stuff guys.
Unbelievable. Do you guys hold the largest collection record?
"Looking forward to working with you in the future."
That is crazy. So many games, so little time.
i must find a quest to open the vault now!!!
Yo! Da door to dat joint look like that joint from Fallout 3, dats tyte! You let dem bustaz at Bethasdizzle use yo design or dey like infringment on dat look? Holla back Big Nick Perm!
must be nice...
I want the contents of that vault!!!!!
Wow. I just finished watching the video. (FINALLY got it to work) That was incredible.
I saw a fire extinguisher in there, and I sincerely hope you guys never need to use it. That room should be fireproofed and waterproofed for safekeeping. (waterproofed in case a pipe bursts or something)
That is badass. I am so working for you. Im only 13 right now so don't go out of business.
