So I went to my local game store that has a lot of old consoles and games to pick up some PS1 games. They had about half the games I was looking for and I was surprised to find a copy of Brigandine: The Legend of Forsena for $70. The prices online are quite similar so I think I'm going to go back and buy it.

I paid $60 for a copy of the Xbox version of Bloodrayne 2, when it was coming off of store shelves and was hard to find. I was like 11 and I feel dumb for doing it now haha

Steel Battalion. With shipping and customs: > $300

Thought technically I got the expansion with it, so that was 2 games.

I guess paying $30 each for Persona 3 and Persona 4, and $30 for each of the Digital Devil Saga games. Don't really have any old games I'm crazy for though. I would kill to get an old mint copy of Vanguard Bandits as it's one of my favourite games of all time, but I refuse to pay $100-$150+ for it. Well, until I win the lotto anyway. Also wouldn't mind getting mint copies of the Silver Star and Eternal Blue Lunar games. So many great memories with those. And Breath of Fire 4. Dam it now I really want to go on a spending spree. Why couldn't I have been born into a filthy Rich family?

I think 40 bucks for Snake Eater for Game Cube. I really wanted it at the time and this was a few years ago where you could get gamecube games for 10 bucks. Don't know why it was that much.

I could be unbelievably mistaken, but I don't think that came out on GC. Did you mean Twin Snakes by any chance?

I bought a sealed, new copy of Kuon on the PS2 for $130 like, a month ago off Amazon.

No, I still haven't played it, so I have no idea what I think of it, but I'm going to get around to it after Xenoblade Chronicles stops eating my soul. But I figure, a From Software-developed game published by Agetec could be interesting.

Few years ago I spent $85 for a copy of Xenogears. Than it came out on PSN for 9.99. Oh well, it's the black bottom version with the manual and it's in great shape so I can't complain.

"Rare than a virgin on prom night" is a common backwater expression. I updated to reflect a perceived increase in the acceptable level of promiscuity among today's youth. There was no need to take it personally, or inform us about the deepest darkest secrets of your personal life.

I saw a statistic on Yahoo that stated that the average age that people lose their virginity today is approximately 17 years old, which was apparently similar to another survey that was done. Pretty crazy, though this could be some form of survey fallacy.

Anyways...

No fair. It's not like Tomba is super rare or anything, but you could do MUCH worse than $60.

Also; Tomba is an awesome game.

Nothing was taken personally. Was just confused by your statement. I was not aware it was a pun on that turn of phrase. Also, not having sex is hardly a deep dark secret of my personal life. Never understood why getting to stick your genitals into another persons was that big a deal. When I meet the right person it will happen, and that's about it. Not that big a deal.

My record is $170 on a copy of Renny Blaster for the PC Engine. That was a major steal, as the game is probably number 2 in price/rarity for the PCE, and it's a game I had given up on acquiring. Right behind that I got the Famicom Gun/Wild Gunman/holster and belt bundle for around $150.

I bought Suikoden II for around $50 at a local store. Once I play it, I'll resell it for twice that price.

@Artikay: Yeah I didn't realize it was rare until I started looking for it again recently. I'm not much of a collector and don't mind getting rid of games but there are some games I wish I would've kept when I was younger.

I paid more than one-hundred dollars for a PlayStation 2 copy of Marvel v. Capcom 2.

And then it came out on Xbox Live Arcade a year and a half later.

@Bocam: I play some VNs but I don't really follow the news on them, so is there something special about the 360 version that warrants such a high price?

Edit: Wait I think I read that page wrong, it's the Windows version that's so high.

Brigandine is such a great game. I'm glad I held onto my copy. Too bad I sold my copy of Suikoden II for $10 way back when. Suikoden II now worth over $100.

40 for Legend of Zelda anniversery collection on gamecube.

Oh, and for my best deal? MGS twin snakes FOR FREE! Yeah... I had a few friends at the time who were majorly churchy and stuff and they gave it to me because their parents wouldn't let them play it! played the shit out of it... although the cutscenes pissed me off for many obvious reasons.

Yeah, wow. I love how Tomba is the default rare ass PS1 game, my brother bought a copy a few years ago for quite a sum. Funny enough, I have a blockbuster copy of Brave Fencer Musashi that I bought for 7 bucks when I was a kid. One of the best and most valuable games I have ever played stained by a massive fucking blockbuster stamp thing on the disc. Still, holy shit is that game perfect.

Edit: An Amazon check just told me the game is $127 new, I'm happy enough to know I own the game.

I paid $50 or so for a copy of ICO a couple years back. I played it once. It took me about 8 hours or so. Don't ever want to touch it again. Completely worth it.

$40 for Dragon Quest 3 about 8 years ago.

EDIT: Oh, I guess this will be a decent place to ask. I have an OG first run edition of FF7, complete with the typo on the back. Does it actually sell for a good price nowadays? I bought it for $15.
