If you are one of the gamers who had to get rid of some old titles or just lost them, let us tell you that there is a museum in Japan that seeks to do something good for the whole community: bring people together with their retro games, all thanks to the good will of the Japanese Junji Seki.

As you surely know, especially if you are a veteran player, on many occasions people were forced to sell or give away some delivery cartridges that undoubtedly gave them hours and hours of fun.
Now, collector and game developer Junji Seki was inspired by the names and addresses written on old cartridges to begin his unique task of finding the original owners.

Thanks to this, Seki founded the Named Cassette Museum in Tokyo, Japan, whose mission is to bring together those people who have ever written their names, addresses or other personally identifiable information on the cartridges of retro consoles.
According to the information shared, the Japanese saw a wasted opportunity in old games that have some brand or something written on them, since as you can imagine, an average collector does not see an item in that state in a good way.

However, the director of the museum wanted to take advantage of this condition of the cartridges to learn the story behind them, so he decided to open the museum in 2015 to document the path that each one took until they reached the counters of the place.
How can retro games be claimed?
It is worth mentioning that the Named Cassette Museum has requirements for people who find a cartridge that they believe was theirs. Some of them are that each gamer must buy it (for the price of their choice), let the director Junji Seki himself hand-deliver it to them, and the museum documents the history of it on their website to learn about it (how could have lost and any other memories).
