Hype from youtubers and such is definitely the biggest price driver.
I had well over 200 Dreamcast games at one point before getting rid of almost all my US games. Kept only the stuff I truly cared about.
Don't remember what I needed for the full set but I had a lot of fuggin junk as evidenced by this trade.

All that matters is you got joy out of the pc build. I'm selling off some games right now for extra bluray buying power. Not playing the games, will watch the blurays. No regrets tbh.
