    $79.99 plus tax for Chrono Trigger at TRU. I lived in a rural part of NC at the time with very few game shops around, and couldn't resist the game any longer. How I long for the days when my only bill was a $92 a month car payment, even if I was barely making over minimum wage after school.

    Interestingly enough (to me anyway), I didn't really know what I was getting. It was my first RPG, but I was convinced to buy it by Flea Market Guy (who gave me a little info about RPGs when I asked why some of his SNES games were so much more expensive) and the awesome CT ads. When I first started playing, I sat there a minute before realizing that *I* had to advance the dialogue further. :lol:

    It made me 30 some cents short when I bought gas on the way home that fateful night, but luckily the guy was kind enough to let me come back and pay it the next day (which I'm proud to say I did). It also kicked off a craving for good RPGs that will probably never be quenched.

    $190 for Odyssey 2 Power Lords off ebay the other day because I am tired of losing out on auctions for this game and anything else good that I find on ebay lately. Hopefully it's nice so I won't feel too bad about paying so much for this game.

    I paid about $110 (Australian dollars) for Top Gear Rally 2 (brand new) for my N64. That's about $55 US dollars.

    Our games aren't usually that expensive, but this was just after the GST (Goods & Services Tax) was introduced in Australia. Third-party video games were hurt the most.

    $250 for Space Channel 5 Part 2 LE. So it was more for the accessories than the game, but well worth it.

    I paid $700 for my NEO GEO MVS 6 slot dedicated machine, and $92 for a MINT Metal Slug X U.S. kit.

    For home systems - $51.00 for a sealed Maxi-15, and $49.99 for any number of other games.

    67 posts later and I finally get around to answering.

    I asked this question because I had just paid $250 for a boxed Atari 2600 "Lochjaw". You may have expected that I've paid much more for some of the other things in my collection, like the boxed "Malagai", boxed "Video Life" - both of which would go for well over a grand if I were to sell - or the piles of prototypes I've amassed over the years, but you'd be wrong. Fortunately I've stumbled into lots of great stuff mainly from just being in the right place before everyone else or being terribly persistent with owners (you know who you are).

    So that's it for me, $250 for a boxed Atari 2600 "Lochjaw". Closest to that would be $200 for a boxed Intellivision Congo Bongo.

    I was expecting a whole four digit sum from you, Joe. $250 is your maximum? I... I just feel so... used.

    $355 for a complete bubble bath babes (brand new, never used)

    BTW, if I could find a NWC gold cart, 4K would probably be a deal right now. Last summer one was on ebay and hit almost 7K and the RESERVE WAS NOT MET! I don't know, but if I see one, I WILL buy it!!
