How much is to much for a Nes game?
What is the most you have ever paid for a Nes game? So far all the pawn shops I have gone to sell them for $5. And have you ever seen a place that was selling NES Games
for way to much?
Around here I find that $5 is the going rate for commons, it kinda sucks, but there aen't a whole lot of games I'm still looking for. I think the most I paid for a single game was... $8 for my complete and mint Air Fortress
or $8 for Gauntlet
(Prices in Canadian Dollars)
$6 each for Zelda
and Link gold carts
I paid $12.00 for Crystallis, but that's only because it had the Gameboy Color Sticker on it, and I really didn't feel like starting an arguement with the guy who was obviously new to working the register. Other than that my prices usually range from $.99 - $6.00 but if I want the game, I really dont mind paying a little more even if I am getting "ripped off".
I don't really have a limit, I judge each game individually. The most I paid was 10 pounds for a complete (inserts, instructions etc) Donkey Kong Classics
I paid $45 CAD for Tengen Tetris
$5 or so is not a bad price at all for any NES game, I really hate the shops that think they know what games are worth. The other day, seen some place selling the Nintendo Tetris
for $20!?! A couple of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
games for $20 a piece, Loopz and Dr. Chaos
for $13 each. This is beyond the point of buying for me.
One other thing I hate about shops and NES Games
, some people like to individually price each game with a black marker! I told the guy at this shop once that if he wouldn't have marked each one with the pen I would have boughten them, you should have seen the look on his face.
But then I think of the time I bought my Maxi-15 cart for $3 and I begin to feel better!
Here's my top four most expensive NES Games
that I've paid for:
Garage Cart - $40 USD
Princess Tomato - ~$28 USD (waiting on this to come in the mail )
Dragon Warrior II
- $25 USD
Dragon Warrior III
- $20 USD
I usually end up spending around five bucks for most of my games though.
back when i first started collecting NES Games
i paid $15 for Contra
, and later got another copy for free from a friend
other than that the most i've paid for a NES game is $9.99 each for Bubble Bobble
Force, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3
, and Color a Dinosaur.... but i felt those were worth it considering they're either hard to find or jacked up too high on ebay
30 for PacMan
i was like "WHAT"
most i paid was about $65 USD for a complete little samson
Prices around here are usually 5-10, with the occasional $3 games
the most rediculous thing i saw was 40 for nintendo Tetris
. the same store also had Megaman 6
priced at 20
As of now, I wouldn't pay more than 10 dollars for a NES game. I have in the past though...
Prices here are either really good, or horrible.
My local store had Bubble Bobble
for 4.99, while they had Megaman 3
and 4 for 25 each.
I paid $20 for a complete Menace Beach and $30 for a complete Dragon Warrior IV
I see prices around $7USD in my area. Give or take. Most places here know what's up regarding games.
I have seen Mario 3 for $16 at this one local game store. Average around here though is about 4-7.
I saw a complete Stack Up go for 200 bucks on Ebay.
Game Exchange here in RC, SD sells a complete Final Fantasy
, for 15 bucks.
Sadly thats not overpriced and pretty much the going rate.
$12 bucks for Super Mario Bros.
, funny thing is i think someone actually brought it poor guy
They were alll $12( i think was was $8 or something) but there was all complete in great con, thats why i broought them but since mario/Duckhunt
i already own 4 copys of i didnt bother buying it, also at $!2 its a rip off
The last auction i won on eBay i got The Punisher,Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt and Predator all complete i paid a Hefty $75
75 dollars for a broken toaster nes, doesnt count as a "game" but is a really big ripoff, never go to gametraders.
