Sales of memorabilia support Mike Forgey's family

The family of Michael Forgey, producer of games like Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Gears of War 2, are auctioning off a variety of signed games, consoles and other merchandise in his memory. Nearly 60 items, ranging from a $2,000 life-sized Master Chief statue to signed copies of games like Batman: Arkham Knight and Forza Horizon 2, are now accepting bids, with proceeds going toward supporting his family.

Forgey passed away in March after a battle with glioblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer. Friends of the producer launched a campaign soliciting donations toward his medical expenses back in December. According to its eBay page, the auction is again hosted by Forgey's friends and peers, who rallied to contribute a variety of rare items.

These include a limited-edition Destiny-brand PlayStation 4 signed by members of Bungie; a PS4 signed by the team behind Shadows of Mordor; a studio tour of Monolith Productions, where Forgey was employed before his passing; two Samsung Gear VR headsets autographed by John Carmack; a limited-edtion lithograph of art from Batman: Arkham Knight and much more.

Bids are accepted until this Saturday. To peruse the full set of listings, visit the eBay page. A page dedicated to Forgey on "compassionate crowdfunding" platform YouCaring remains open, for those who'd like to support the producer's family in another way.
