    VC Not Such A Ripoff For Certain Games - List of Game Values For Carts

    The list has been updated as of 12-03-2007. Pretty much I made this in Excel awhile back to determine which games I should buy on the VC. I posted this on another forum but there seemed to be no interest in it. I thought this might be useful for people wanting the most bang for their buck while downloading VC games so I decided to post it here too. Some games are so rare or expensive it's actually better to buy them on the VC if all you want to do is play them. Other games are so cheap and common that if you don't mind having an extra system around to play them that may be a better option for you. Anyway, I used the reviews found on http://www.vc-reviews.com . I included games that got 4-5 stars and sorted them by a price guide at http://www.digitpress.com
    NES and SNES games are prices for the loose carts. Genesis, TG-16, and N64 games are for a complete game with box and instructions.

    Nice list.

    I still buy NES cartridges though. Can't beat the 4 button controller

    I love that big grey toaster-like console

    I like a system where games cost dollars to buy. Even if you buy a dud, I can't picture you shouting outside, "I CAN'T BELIEVE I WASTED $10!" If you do, I suggest travelling back into 1970 when comics costed 50 cents.

    Considering I live in England, I think this outcome is highly unlikely.

    Not for long or hopefully you still can b/c I love going to yard sales and picking up rare games and making some money. There's an emerging collectors market where people are going out there and snatching up all of this stuff. It's eventually going to be like comic books, action figures, etc. They even recently graded sealed videogame carts just like toys. Kind of like what the CGC is to comic books but for toy figures. Can't recall the acronym.

    The prices on digitpress are actually on the low side for collectors. I've gone on Ebay and the average price has been much higher on some of those games especially Squaresoft stuff.

    Well, let me clarify it a little. Yeah, people have been collecting games. It's just that it's getting bigger and it's actually getting more difficult to find stuff than it used to be. I don't think it's reached the status of other collectibles like comic books and it definitely hasn't gotten anywhere as big as comics got in the 80's and 90's. I also haven't seen games reach $500,000 yet like Action Comics #1. That'll probably be the gold Nintendo World Championship Cart about 50 years from now :-D However, we're starting to see stuff like Collectors Editions and things like that. It's just starting to get big.

    BTW, I just updated the list. I didn't add Lost Levels and I probably need to look into Sin and Punishment a little more. I used an Ebay price for that one but I'll probably change it or remove it entirely if I don't find anymore info.
