    Okay considering most of these games are more than likely re-seals and commons... I'd say HELL NO!.
    Even if they were legit I wouldnt give more than 180 for them all.

    I would say no.
    None of those games are really THAT rare. You're paying about four times as much as I'd probably be willing to pay for those games, give or take about fifty bucks.

    That's like paying someone to rape you at knifepoint. Not even REMOTELY a good deal. Nothing there is even remotely rare, and just cause a game is factory sealed doesn't make it worth money. If it's a GOOD game, or a rare game that's sealed..yes, but those...not worth it. I'd say all told, those would be worth MAYBE $150 if they're all original factory seals, and that's pushing it.

    Oh my! I have a few sweaters that need to be dry-cleaned. Could you take care of them as long as you're being taken to the cleaners yourself? Honestly, you are being taken advantage of. x_x

    I know 2 things about jjd482. He always overpays for sealed NES games and he overcharges for them even more. If your looking to spend that kind of cash on sealed games I know a few people that would give you all those and throw in a sealed Final Fantasy for most likely a lesser price.

    $300 is still way too high imho because most of those games are really common even though they are sealed they just dont have much demand if you ever wanted to off them.

    Do yourself a favor and just don't buy them. They're WAY too expensive at even $300. I'd say that max that you'd be able to get trying to resell them is around $200 tops, and that's if you're lucky. They're not worth the money pure and simple. If they were uncommon, or rare games...maybe, but they're not.

    Fact is, unless you REALLY want factory sealed games and plan to keep them that way, there's no point in buying factory sealed games at all. Personally, I don't see the point of buying collectible factory sealed games...I buy my games to play em...but I know some people do collect factory sealed. Even so, they're not worth more than MAYBE $10 each, even sealed, and therefor not worth your time or money. If he'd sell em to you for $200 shipped, that MIGHT be worth it if you have a hard on for em, but even that is pushing it.

    Good luck!

    We could argue all day about what you "should" pay for these games, but we all agree that they're not worth close to what he's asking. Just the fact that he would try to charge you that means you should back out now. Don't even bother with a counter offer. If you continue dealing with him, you're just going to get a headache.

    I have all but 3 of those games and I got them all at either Trading Zone or at flea markets for about $2 each and they were pretty easy to find. I have about 425 NES games and except for my Complete Final Fantasy I have never paid more than $10 for any game and it's pretty rare for me to pay that much. I'll bet your seller is just drooling, waiting on your payment, picturing you with a big tootsie pop wrapper wrapped around your head.

    I agree with Maxlords. If you are going to actually play these games then what is the point in buying "New and Sealed" games anyway. Besides, if you don't really know anything about your seller, you have no way of knowing if he shrinkwrapped them himself. Shrinkwrap and a hairdryer is pretty cheap.
