As shown by man whose work relocated there.
When Reddit user Soulessgingr’s work relocated to a new building in Agoura Hills, California, he was delighted to see that it was actually the proverbial burial ground of former video game publisher THQ. Better yet, it still had a lot of cool memorabilia from the publisher’s heyday.
Soulessgingr said he’d heard that all this paraphernalia was intentionally left behind as assets meant to make up for owed rent. “The building manager purchased all the stuff that was left and THQ also left some stuff (hardware mostly) because they owed a lot of money for back rent,” the Reddit user said. He later added that another colleague verified that the building owner paid THQ for the sweet swag.
Aside from the cool, vaguely melancholy ambiance of working in a place haunted by totems of a once great video game publisher, Soulessgingr was given three of the left behind posters for Darksiders 2. “I was given Darksiders 2 posters a while ago because the CIO knew I loved that game when he did the initial tour,” he explained. The lucky buck.
So, without further ado, here’s nine pictures detailing what the former THQ building looks like today.
