So, here's the deal. I was just looking at some old school games as I'm continuing to build the collection for my new basement music room and classic game cave. Back in 2006, I purchased an NES game called Gun Nac. Back then - not that it was THAT long ago mind you - they were regularly going for about $5 to $10, and they weren't very common. I got mine for $10 total, including shipping, off eBay. Excellent condition. Today, I searched for Gun Nac on eBay: copies are now going for $100+, and there are more copies than when I bought mine: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2053587.m570.l1313&_nkw=gun+nac+nes&_sacat=0&_from=R40 Also, things like Bonk's Adventure, Bubble Bobble 2 or Snow Bros. for the NES. If the amount of copies on eBay is any indication, it's not really THAT rare. Yet people are charging $200+ a copy: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odk...m570.l1313&_nkw=bonk's+adventure+nes&_sacat=0 http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odk...045573.m570.l1313&_nkw=snow+bros+nes&_sacat=0 http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odk....m570.l1313&_nkw=bubble+bobble+2+nes&_sacat=0 Also, check out the chart on the side about how game prices on the NES have climbed recently: http://videogames.pricecharting.com/console/nes?sort-by=name Why are NES games that aren't that rare so overpriced these days? Why are really common SNES games routinely $30+ on the used market? How come Atari and Sega stuff has stayed relatively cheap? What happened to the days when you could just find all this stuff at garage sales for $2?
