Barry's love for video games began as a child, where he spent most of his afternoons at "Yesterday's" an arcade room in the old San Jacinto Mall in Baytown.
"I never had any money for school lunches because I spent it all at the arcade," Barry said.

His first collectible was a Sonic the Hedgehog bubble gum container.

"It has taken me about 25 years to put this collection together and it's constantly evolving. I add one item per week to my collection," said Barry.

His man cave includes everything from Nintendo 64, to Dragon's Liar, to Terminator 2 and Pinball.

"It's great, I think everyone should have a dream" says his wife Stacey. "And he's definitely living his dream."
