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 don't have anything too insane either. My most expensive game is Pokemon Emerald (CIB) very good condition which is insane at like $400+ today. I actually kept all my gameboy advance boxes from when I bought them originally and shoved them in a closet. Imagine the shock on my face when I re-discovered them about 2 years ago. I say shocked because I threw out all the other boxes for games I had but for whatever reason I kept my GBA boxes.

Also have:
Pokemon Fire Red CIB
Pokemon Leaf Green CIB
Fire Emblem Sacred Stones CIB
Final Fantasy IV, V, and VI Advance CIB
Pokemon Platinum CIB
Xenosaga 3 PS2 CIB

I don't currently own any games that are really too valuable. Just some Switch games hovering around the $100 mark or higher. (Some of which could easily come down with a reprint.) I just get surprised sometimes when I look at the current value of some games I used to own, such as Solatorobo on DS. (And a lot of other DS games that have really shot up in price.)

I don't regret selling/trading off my older games though. I'm more upset that I didn't jump on the Bitcoin bandwagon sooner lol.

I pisses me off I had a cib copy of White 2 that I sold off. I still have the original case though for some reason. If anyone needs it, hit me up. Doesnt hold much value to me, so if you want an official case/artwork, I'd let it go for cheap

I used to play Final Fight CD with my cousin. We played Bouncers a lot, too. No clue what happened to all those Sega CD games I had in the 90s.

Sealed black label FF7 with misprint and Panzer Dragoon Saga I think. I honestly haven't looked at prices on most of my stuff in ages... No clue what stuff is worth these days.

Not totally sure since I log my collection on GVN which is pretty unreliable and I don't want to randomly look games up. Suikoden II seems the mostly likely for the top spot. Had a bunch of the now pricey Pokemon games over the years but never liked them enough to keep them. SoulSilver/Heartgold was probably my favorite of those.

I'd have to go through and check, but off the top of my head, one of my most expensive games would have to be my complete copy of Conker's Bad Fur Day. Looks to be fetching anywhere between $200-$300 on eBay as of late.

Off the top of my head, my top 5 would be my CIB copy of Fire Emblem Path of Radiance, my CIB soundtrack version of Solatorobo, my CIB copy of Pokemon Platinum, and my loose copies of Suikoden II and Chrono Trigger. Funny enough ... I know I have not even tried out Solatorobo or Suikoden II.

I'm pretty confident my most valuable game is Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (loose--$185). But not far behind is Chibi-Robo! Plug into Adventure! (in box without manual). That thing's price is going crazy right now! I'd wager mine's worth ~$180.

I've also got 3D Tetris (loose--$110), Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (CIB--$88), and various main-series CIB Pokemon DS games. I've also been gradually assembling Pandora's Tower Limited Edition with an American disc at its heart, so I'd place its value around $100 once it's finished. Honorable mention goes to the loose Fossil Fighters: Champions game I bought on a whim in 2017, which somehow went from $8 to over $60.

I also own Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros., and we know what'll happen to those soon.

I'm excited to see whats gonna happen with Vita games. I'm a big vita collector afterall. P4G is a good example of how game values rollercoaster. When the Vita was still supported, the game was like $20 at stores. Few years later it shoots up to $65-70. Then the game launches on PC and the value drops to like $40-45. Legacy PS Stores are gonna shut down - it shoots back up to $100.

the constant up, down, up, down of that game is gonna make me puke
