    Default help!which old games are hard to get/find!

    hi everybody im new to this site!

    well heres the story!

    we have a local large flea market in my local town!
    and im always running into old games & access & game systems for old game like for nes,atari..ect
    and im just wondering if anybody can help me out on what to look for!
    this pass-wkend,this lady had like 20 nes/ninteno 64 games and she wanted like $3 for all of them! you see lots of these games laying around on top of tables for 50cents to $1
    i didnt buy them due,to im not intersted in them!
    i was gonna buy them to sell them at eb(electonic boutiqe),but i know for fact they only give you like 5-25 cents per game!

    i have also seen several gray controllers that have the shape like a dog bone and game systems!

    i just dont wanna buy some games and end up losing what i paid for them!

    so if anybody can tell me what to look for,i would be very thankful

    If you're buying purely to re-sell for a profit, these are some of the ones you should be looking out for:

    Atari 2600 - Combat, ET
    NES - Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt
    Genesis - Sonic 1 (but only the ultra-rare 'not for resale' version)

    Hope that helps!

    Ditto. If you want to be yet another profiteer, at least be respectful enough to buy the DP Guide.

    First up, welcome to DP! We truly are happy to have you and happy to help!

    That said, you kinda opened yourself up to a bit of ire with your query. "What's worth most, so I can resell it for money" requests are met with some irritation around here. Most folks here are collectors and not really "profiteers" looking to turn a score around for a few bucks. And people who ask those kinds of questions with relatively few posts also tend to disappear once they have their answers - making those who helped 'em out feel a bit "used."

    Since your question is so open-ended, no one is gonna want to do the legwork for you. If you're looking for a quick reference that you can do yourself, check out the DP Online Rarity Guide in the menu bar above. You can pretty much sort through the lists by rarity, and values are also listed for most games/systems. If you remember the games she had, you can look them up individually. If not, call up lists for the system (NES/N64) and see what the big dollar items are.

    However, the portable biodegradable Digital Press Guide (Classic and Advance) is the price guide/rarity list that all others are compared with. Two very big volumes with every game for every system from the classics of the 70s and 80s up through modern systems like the N64, NES, TG-16, etc. You owe it to yourself to pick one or both up. Plus, they make great bathroom readin'!

    Hope this helps.

    thnxs for welcomming me to this site!

    1st of all!
    im not really intersted in making a few buck,if i made it sound that way!
    i apologize!!
    im more into trading!

    !you got what i want and i got what you want!
    so lets trade!

    but there are some people out there that'll try to screw you over!
    specially if you dont know the value of the game or its a rare/hard to get game!
    and im here selling it for $1 and its valued at $10-15(which itll be my screw-up!)

    but if you really dont know, people will offer you $1 or $2 for the game and it ends up being a $10-15 game!

    i just wanna trade equal value on what the game is worth!
    hope you all understand-where im trying to come from!

    thnxs

    hell, if you see ANY cheap games, buy them. 20 nes/n64 games for $3? even if they games are crap you can make atleast $30 on ebay. if you arent looking for profit though buy anything you see that seems cheap and I am sure someoen here needs the games you have.

    As long as you become a reliable seller/trader i am sure you will come to love the digital press community.

    I think what the guy is saying is he dont give a crap for old school stuff but he can get it cheap and wants to know what to pick up to trade in at a game store for ps2 and gamecube stuff he will actually play.

    Nothing wrong with that.

    My advice pick up cheap nes snes etc. games there and post them in the buying trading forum on this board youll easily find people to trade those games to for newer systems games.

    Agreed, many people here will be willing to trade you ps2 and gamecube games for the nes and snes games that hyou have absolutely have no interest in. The 15 nes games you just got for $5? someone her might trade you two ps2 games for them, or more!

    nuffin wrong with trying to make a buck fella !!!

    your best bet is find a system that intrests you for a start, older the better.
    but, stick to what you like.
    then do an ebay search listed in order of price, completed listings.. that way all the games that are worth the most float to the top, make a note of them and keep an eye out, as time goes by expand your intrests as your knowledge broadens

    anything that is in pristine condition over 10 years old is going to be worth a few quid (sealed or box instructions and cart/cd immaculate)
    loose carts are rarely worth more than a pittance but obviously theres exceptions.

    one word... BOX

    good luck
