    with a starting bid and shipping price like that, he doesn't intend to sell that collection at all. if he had started low it would skyrocket to a huge price anyway. he's just looking to show off.

    is this the same guy that had all of the nes games, and a room painted like mario bros.?

    I agree, though, this is what emulators are for.

    That list really took me back. I remember playing Roger Clemens baseball back when I was a little kid 1 on 1 tournaments with my friends and Mario Kart with my dad and brother. I spent hours on Mario Paint and Mario is Missing too. And that's only mentioning four of those titles. Still, there are a ton of titles there that are complete crap and the average person could get pretty much every title that they loved as a kid seperately for just a few hundred dollars.

    That sure is a lot of games... Not really worth that price though.

    No, I dont agree with that at all.

    if you consider that every single game is COMPLETE with box and manual, and that there's 794 of them, and of course some are even still in the shrink-wrap, it's worth it. it would take anyone years of running around and loads of sheer luck to assemble a collection like this, if they could do it at all. a big part oft he price is just the convenience of getting it all in one go. This isnt for the casual gamer, this is for serious collectors only.

    Again, I disagree. I've never touched an emulator nor would I want to. If I want to play a game, I'll play it the way it was meant to be played. I'm very proud of my physical game collection. I can actually display my old games out in the open for people to see, touch, and play. Much better than just opening a folder on a computer and clicking an icon. playing games on an emulator over the original version is a lot like settling for a dollar store bootleg of a transformer over the real thing.

    I see your points, and I too am proud of my gold Zelda carts and SMB set. However, I can't help but go the emulator route often times, since I'm a tightwad. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to own a bunch of other titles, but the sheer number of them that I'd want to buy would seriously eat into my TF funds!

    If it makes you feel any better, I did go out and buy a PS1 (grey console, not the white PSone) this week just so I could play FFVII and FFVIII again. You're right, emulators just ain't the same.

    Not to mention some of those games are pretty damn hard to come by in that sort of condition in most markets. I'm not sure if it's the same in the US, but UK prices for a US Chrono Trigger cartridge alone were around £70-100 in 2004 (according to xe.com right now around $135-194) and there are other games that either matched that price or aren't far off. I can't see that valuation having decreased at all, considering the carts aren't being made anymore.

    Not really. There are some games that can still fetch a hefty resale price (like someone else mentioned "Chrono Trigger"), but otherwise I've seen second hand SNES games at thrift stores, pawn shops and flea markets all for less than $10 in most cases.

    That's why the seller still doesn't have any bids. Unless they're insane, no one's going to pay $15K for that lot...even for a such a comprehensive vintage collection. You could buy a nice car for less than that.
