    $99.99 all day long... for the N64 version of Cruisin' USA when it first came out.

    On a side note, how come Nintendo games were always more? Anybody ever notice how SNES games were always $10 to $20 more than Genesis titles? Same with N64 stuff. $99.99? In hindsight, THAT'S A RIP!
    Yeah, that's right... WORD!

    You guys are nuts! I've shelled out $40.00 each for several 2600 CGE releases, but the most I've paid for a single game was $42.00 for a DC European Shenmue II I spotted in mint condition at a local used game store. It even came with a boot disc but I still felt like I was spending too much.

    Got my Panzer Saga for $20 at TRU, got my Tooth Protectors for .79 at a thrift and got my PS2 GTA III for $9.99 at Goodwill. Getting 'em cheap is half the fun for me. And waiting for new releases to show up used at 1/4 the price isn't a problem as I have a beefy backlog of games to go through. Although I must admit I once dropped a total of $280 in one day at 5 different Best Buys when they knocked all of their Saturn games down to $10.00....timing is everything

    A cheap bastard and proud of it!

    $.033 for NES Proto Total Recall
    3 and 3/10ths of a cent !!

    Man you guys ARE cheap. Just give the guy his 4 cents and call it a day. I am still trying to figure out how you mananged to pull this one off.

    <looks into DPs magic 8-ball deeply>

    "OK I'm giving you a full 4 cents today for this NES proto but you still owe me buddy !! " as you wave a pointed finger in the strangers face.

    The stranger doesn't say a word and you turn to leave
    But just as you are about to walk away a thought clouds your mind. What if this stranger never returns the 7/10ths of a cent.

    "Do you have anything cheap like a copy of Final Fantasy or an Atari 2600 proto for the remaining 7/10ths of a cent? I just hate when people owe me money. I never know when I can expect it back."

    "I don't have anything like that but I'll make sure to do you right by next Monday, good sir" the stranger says as he shakes from head to toe.

    Yet thats was the last you ever saw of the stranger and the 7/10th of a cent were lost forever.

    I guess you were right all along. You just can't trust anyone these days.

    <pulls away from DPs magic 8-ball>

    Ahh so thats how it happened.......

    I think $125 for Swordquest Waterworld a few years ago. But Steel Battalion on the X-box w/controller might break that when I buy it.

    65 bucks for harvest moon 64. I felt i payd too much until i played the game.
    Somebody once told me to get a life.

    I told them I sold it for money to buy video games.

    When I bought my GBA I needed a game for it so I bought Castlevania: CotM at list price ($40)

    Never again! It's a good game, but I'd rather spend $40 on 40 crap games at $1 a piece. (Besides, what are the chances that you'll buy 40 games and not find one good game in the buch?)

    Actually, I just ordered "Napple Tale" for the DC, but it's a present for my brother so it shouldn't count. That was $55.

    I paid $200 + shipping for Castlevania X: Rondo of the Blood for PCE about a year an a half ago when you couldn't find it for less..now its sells for $60..go figure

    The next highest would probably be Alien Soldier PAL for $106 + shipping from Britain, and Panzer Dragoon Saga, which I bought brand spanking new when it came out for $75!

    And I'll add the most expensive game I've ever sold was more than the most expensive game I bought. I sold a factory sealed Steam Hearts for PCE for $300 a few months ago I also sold my entire arcade for $10,000 (60 arcade games) but I doubt that arcade games count, or the most expensive game I'd have bought would be a Spy Hunter pinball for $500.

    The most I've ever spent on a game would be $49.99 for Metal Geat Solid 2 for PS2!

    Man, $4,000 for a gold NWC?!?!?!! Either you're made of money, or you're insane. I'd have to sell my house (if I had one...I'm a kid ya know) to pay that off! Well, hope it was worth it. Better have been darn fun too!

    I paid $90 + tax (which in Ontario is 15%, so the total was $103.50) for, I'm embarassed to say, Hexen on N64. I was starved for new games at the time...

    @nesman85 - Okay, so maybe you haven't, but Cruisin' USA was $99.99 at my local Funcoland when it first came out. What would that be? Late 1996?
    Yeah, that's right... WORD!

    I try to set my limit at $100. Which means or more than likely, I'll never get to play Radiant Silvergun at all for the Saturn. The most i paid so far was $100 for Panzer Dragoon Saga (Saturn). Next would be $80 for Lucienne's Quest (3DO) and $80 for Spiderman: Web of Fire (32X)
    I'll have to agree with one of the previous posts that Steel Battalion will break my previous limit.

    I think I paid $70 for Chrono Trigger when it first came out, but I'm not sure.

    However, I AM sure that I paid $60 for a brand new import Capcom Vs. SNK 2 for the Dreamcast. Hey, it was cheaper than buying a PS2...

    With the exchange rate and shipping, I paid $105.00 CDN for Qb: Limited Edition from Andrew Davie. It was a present for myself and my wife, and we choose #27 (for our anniversary, February 7) as the number. Next most expensive is pretty cheap. I think, 35.00 + tax for Sled Storm PSX.

    D'oh! I meant 33 cents. I bought 9 games for 3 bucks, with carry case (that was free, heh heh). I thought he meant 3 bucks each, but then he said, no, take em all for 3 bucks.

    Yep. it was a good day. My first proto too.

    $80 for Radiant Silvergun, which is a bargain, actually, and well worth every penny.
