And yeah, it sucks that these shows and videos to play a part in driving up the price, but so have internet forums for the longest time. If you think about it, if there were no youtube and no forums, we could all be out there finding lumps of games on the cheap. But with the net we share information, and it's natural that people will share the ins and outs, the joys, etc. of their hobbies with like-minded people. Personally, I'd rather be a collector and deal with the uptick in prices, than be a collector who cannot freely share in the joy of the hobby with others as we all do here, on other forums, or on youtube and the like.
    Agreed.

    I watch some of these videos, and I do enjoy them. Let's face it though, if you are spending $100+ on a 20 year old game, instead of getting it for cheap on the VC (as in the case of Wild Guns) you probably aren't getting it for the gameplay.
