    Can't believe the game didn't do better in sales. Like, it's not really my typical sort of game and even I loved the hell out of it. Reviews were pretty universally fantastic as well, right?

    Snatched up the budget rerelease (small box / $20) in '03 because it'd run on my laptop at the time. So happy I did that.


    Oh yeah, when I got my copy about 2 years ago I paid about 50 bucks for it! I think the reason it did not do so well was because you could only get it from one place (EB Games, I think?) and they did not have it for very long.

    I've sold Sam & Max games for a bit.

    Also I believe Day of the Tenticle, at least complete, is worth a few bones.

    I've been waiting for a thread like this, mainly so I know what to look for when I visit my local Goodwill. They always have so many different types of pc games(boxed, jewel case, etc.) but I never know what to pick up. Someone needs to make a definitive list of 20-50 PC titles you should always pick up when you come across them.

    I second the creation of said list. I've bought so many PC games thinking that if I didn't like them/couldn't run them, I could sell them with ease. This is just not true.

    The older hex war sim games always sell for a decent amount. Specifically the Talonsoft and SSI stuff. Sold a sealed Pacific General for $60 earlier this year and a few complete Battleground series titles for $50.

    I paid $100 for my CIB Daggerfall and $60 for my CIB Duke3d Atomic Edition.

    Also paid $100 for all three Magic: The Gathering games.

    Guess that's rare?

    The original boxed Fallout Tactoics used to get pretty high prices, but since Fallout bundles have started popping up the price might have gone down. The same goes for the PC version of Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire (but not the Mac version, nor Alpha Centauri on its own).

    There's a couple of other three-figure games here:

    Indeed it is not.

    I'm sure someone will correct me, but I don't know of any PC games that only came in a jewel case that are worth anything.

    Is the Interplay 15th Anniversary really worth that much? I know I have the 10th Anniversary collection but I never spent anything near that much. Some of those prices have to be way off.

    Could you elaborate on that? I'm looking at mine and the oddest thing I can see is that the alien has a funny shaped hole in his forehead. What, do people mistake it for a three-pointed swastika?

    No, no, I'm thinking of the back.

    The jewel case rerelease of Planescape Torment w/ Soulbringer would like to have a word with you!
    (it was available on the bargain rack at Walmart for $10 back in '02 and now it moves for $60+)

    Heh. I have that. Problem is my PC games tend to end up disc only so I wonder if the jewel case is kicking around my parent's house.

    A lot of collectors don't seem to go for PC games. People from my area find great console games at the same stores I go to and never mention any PC games... but when I go there, I see stuff like:
    -Need for Speed games
    -Tomb Raider
    -Earthworm Jim
    -Myst (Mac)
    -3D Ultra Pinball: Creep Night
    -Some Sierra games

    Wow. Got that game years ago, one of my families first PC games. It was awesome! "Charge the dynamo!"

    Looks like we have our first game for the list of "20-50 definitive pc titles you should pick up whenever you come across them". Now we just need another 19-49 titles to complete the list.

    The original release of Duke3D had the good extra, the Duke3D mousepad!

    I bought Duke Atomic circa 1999 for like $10.

    Possibility is infinity! You must be satisfied!

    Yep, out of all the Black Isle D&D games, that's the only one to never get a re-release (other than the bargain-bin jewelcase)
