    Default What's the Most You've Ever Paid for a Single Game?

    Whether it was something very new and trendy and expensive or something very vintage... what was the most money you've ever shelled out for one game?

    I'll share my answer later. For now, it's up to you!

    Sonic Adventure 2 when it came out, for $39.99. It's the only console game I've purchased the day of release, mainly because I wanted that nifty Sonic Anniversary pack while supplies lasted ; )

    I paid $70 for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time the day it came out. As far as older (than 1990) games go, I paid $15 for Super Dodge Ball for NES.

    ~$160 for Alien Soldier, JPN Mega Drive. Before that, I think it was around $100 for US Panzer Dragoon Saga (SAT).

    Was Alien Soldier worth that much for gameplay? Hell no. Just to own? Yeah.

    I am not sure how much I have spent on newer games. I don't buy new too often any more, but I used to. As far as used, I spent $34 for Final Fantasy III for Snes. I know it wasn't the best price, but it was for a friend who really wanted it.

    Default A farirly meagre amount

    I paid something like £70 ($110) for Panzer Dragoon Saga (PAL). Worth it? Absolutely, I loved it and lost months playing it! Sadly, I then had to sell it because I was skint and I only bought it on the basis that I could sell it again afterwards. I got £90 for it, but I am still sad that I let it go. First of all, because it was such a great game - and second of all, because it now regualrly fetches £100, and my copy was in almost perfect condition - which is hard to find on the PAL version because the cardboard outer is easily damaged. Foolish really, because I probably wouldn't have played it again, since I coimpleted it, but I can't help feeling the occasional pang of regret that it is gone :-(

    I paid £30 ($50) for Snatcher on the Mega CD (PAL) - which was 100% worth it, one of my all time favourite games! I loved the mix of RPG style adventure and frantic lightgun action! The story was outstanding and the anime was great.

    I bid more than that for Panorama Cotton for the Megadrive, but lost the auction. On the other hand, I just won Mega Man - Wily Wars (PAL Megadrive) for £15, so that makes up for it!

    Default g

    $250 for 7800 monitor cart with big ass book, plus some extra sheets that were added to the book handwritten by the author.

    $209 for Boxed Chase the Chuck Wagon with instructions and original coupon you had to send in to get the game.

    $80 for VCS Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    Few others...can't think right now.


    While were at it:
    $0.25 (yes, 25 cents) for Swordquest Waterworld--actually got it free afterward because I fixed his VCS. Gave me back quarter.



    -Rob

    $.033 for NES Proto Total Recall
