Holy fucking shit, much better than expected. When did retro gaming become so expensive?
>>
In the last five or six years. It's steadily been going up since probably 2005 but since maybe 2011 it's fucking exploded. I would say "now is the time to sell" but honestly with all the system on a chip consoles around now and the interest in retro due to indie games, I'm beginning to think we won't be seeing prices go down anytime soon.

Ebay pricing isn't always indicative of what you'll actually get.

Especially if you're trying to offload an entire collection, it can be hard to get what you're asking.

Sure, you could try and get 250 bucks for earthbound but its unlikely to happen.

>selling your games

Trust me when I say that you will regret it.

Well if he really needs the money now, I guess he'll just sell regardless. If he wants to maximize profit:

If you have a legitimately valuable game, something in the $200+ range that's in good condition, it will likely hold or increase its value over time, so you might want to hold onto those. If you have a less expensive game, say something that's hovering around its original MSRP, then it's more susceptible to going down in value if this supposed "retro bubble" ever pops. I personally don't really believe that there's a bubble, and that the majority of games that have retained their original MSRP thus far are going to stay there or increase in value, but honestly that guess is as good as anyone else's, those games could tank in 3 or 4 years, who knows. Predicting the market is hard, otherwise we'd all be rich.

I'd rather die in the streets that sell one game
No hyperbole

You seriously believe that making an approximate 2x what you paid for your video game years ago is a lot of money?

Do you have or have you ever had a steady job?
