With the PS Store closing on legacy hardware, it got me thinking about what games I need to buy before they become impossible to get for reasonable prices again. This got me going down a rabbit hole and started checking what games I already own and what their selling price is and some shocked me. I used recent ebay sold listing to determine what people are willing to spend on these games. As a modern gamer, I dont have any vintage games that are stupid pricy, but a few of mine are definitely worth a couple pennies

#1. Shantae and the Pirates Curse (Switch) - ~$250-$290
#. Pokemon HeartGold (DS) ~$175
#3. Gravity Rush Remastered (PS4) ~$130-$140
#4. Metroid Prime Trilogy (Wii) ~$100
#5. Persona 4 Golden (Vita) ~$100
#6. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn (Wii) ~$95
#7. Celeste (Switch) ~$90
#8. Jak and Daxter Collection (Vita) ~$90
#9. Amazing Spider-Man (Vita) - ~$70-$75
#10. Pokemon Diamond (DS) ~$75

Honorable mentions that didnt make my top10 most valuable, but definitely games worth more than I thought they'd be

The Simpsons Game (360) ~$45-$50
Ratchet and Clank Collection (PS3) ~$50-$60
Muramasa Rebirth (Vita) ~$50-$60
Ratchet and Clank Quest for Booty (PS3 physical) ~$40-$60

These are just some of the games I own that i bothered to price check. What are some of your games worth?

I have a handful of ds and gba games that are decent

Solarorobo
Zombie bbq
Dokapon journey
Metal slug gba
Probably a few others

The most valuable game I sold was a cart only mint nes panic restaurant for 550$ On eBay about 3 years ago

Worst sale was dk jr math box only for 60$ on here about 20 years ago. It was totally fair at the time

I have the statue of Gerald slaying a griffin from Witcher 3 collectors edition

I have a decent handheld collection which includes neo geo pocket color and atari lynx and such.

I haven't looked up any of my games in a long time. I still have a decent dreamcast and saturn collection. But it's probably games from my CD-I collection that are worth the most. Most notably Zelda: Wand of Gamelon

Da fuq? It's now going for what I remember Zelda's Adventure going for! At this rate, I might not have to sell too much of my collection at retirement... (I mean, the set of 3 sold for $1500...)

It's surprising how a lot of old games have risen in price even when taking inflation into account. The one I had that would be considered valuable (a few Ps1 JRPGS, first party SNES, N64, GC games) I sold years ago.

The only ones I have a left are a couple of Saturn games: Albert Odyssey and Magic Knight Rayearth. Mostly digital nowadays and the other physical games I have left are too current gen or old Xbox 360 games. I doubt those are going to be worth much.

Value going up doesn't mean anything if you have no intent to sell though.

I'm constantly debating between selling and keeping, running out of space to collect games so I end up opting to sell, but a small part of me really misses the game I sell every time.

Also gosh darn PS3 game values are surging, my copy of PlayStation Network collection (the one with fat princess and Tokyo jungle) is now worth $200. Check your collections!

I haven't sold anything yet, but I've been strongly considering it lately. I really don't need most of my older games anymore anyway, thanks to flash carts and emulation. But, there's just something nice about having a physical collection on display.

Back when values were a lot more sane across the board my keeping threshold use to be $200. Way too many of my PS1 stuff is over that now, especially factoring in condition. So far it's all surviving.

For those who collect the early disk based consoles, are you at all concerned about disk rot?
I'm far from a collector, but have a few handfuls from those early years and have thought about selling them out of concern of rot and selling before that arrives.

Puppeteer (PS3) - ~$120 shock

BUH?

Crazy. But it's one of my favorite PS3 games. Top 5 for sure, maybe even Top 3.

I just wish it got that kind of respect when it was released.

Easily one of the best 2D platformers of the current era. I remember buying it on a whim when it first came out and loved it. It was during the 2nd golden age of gaming (the first being the absolute unit that was 2004) when games like Metal Gear Rising, Tomb Raider 2013, Bioshock Infinite, DMC, GTA5, The Last of Us, Killzone Mercenary and the Ps4 launched in the same year. It was severely overlooked and its a shame.

Is this sealed? Price seems to be in limbo between active and sold listings.

No, it's open. The one currently on the 'bay is bidding at around $120 with 16 bids. Im guessing the price is just starting to spike now. Same with Ratchet and Clank Into the Nexus. A few weeks ago it was selling for like $20, but recently it's selling at like $80. I think this is just the start of prices starting to go up. Give it a couple more weeks and a few more listings and I'm confident there'll be more consistent sold listing at its going rate

Having a full PS3 set, I hope your right :)

The most obvious fluke I've seen recently was Ys 8 CE for PS4. Recent sales were 300-400 and just a couple active listings for >=$800. All were new in shrink

Seems so weird that it would spike so big all at once.

Two months of subtime to the first person who finds a recent (last 2 weeks or so, but definitely prior to April 4) video from a relatively popular youtuber (at least 25K subscribers) talking about this game.

Im sorry if I caused confusion. I just looked at this again and it appears that prices have leveled out somewhat. All statements based again on the PS4 Collectors Edition of Ys 8 sealed
- Today the lowest listing is $420, next is $499
- There are a couple of sold listings around the $375 price point
- When checked previously the sold listings were $325-$350 with just those two active listings. It seemed low stock just had somebody setting said price.
- No research was done on the standard edition of the game.

I have noticed this trend on nearly every sequel. The previous game goes up in price as people want to play the last game before they play the latest game. This was also very evident in the Trails of Cold Steel games.

Silly, @Gypsy. Dragons don't sell their treasure at opportune moments: thus benefiting in both the short-term and long-term. Dragons sit on their treasure for all eternity: thus letting things rot and spoil after years upon years of inactivity.

I used to own Puppeteer. I sold it cheap back in late PS3 days, probably when it came to PS Plus for free.

Wasn't sure if I should post or not!

I've got a complete cart-only, licensed NES set that I finished right around when my first son was born, almost six years ago. Haven't added anything to the collection since then, amazingly (I was going for a full SNES set as well, at the time- still have 200-something of those).

Most valuable one is Stadium Events. Still can't believe I have that. Used the winnings I got from a game show and then some to secure it. After that there are games like Little Samson and Flintstones: Surprise at Dino Peak.

Everything I get now is just stuff to play for modern systems. Maybe some day I'll get the collecting bug again, but having three kids and a lack of space to put new stuff derailed that. My dream was always to get a full NES set though, so it feels good to know I accomplished that.
