I really want to get this game, is it worth the 200-250 price tag?
Comes with the case, the strategy guide not just the cartridge

In my book no game is worth that in cartridge form. I've never played Earthbound though
The word "Gem" is overused.

Oh my God. No. Don't get me wrong - I love the game. But SERIOUSLY?!

If the game came out on the virtual console for eight bucks, I wouldn't buy it.
No way I'd pay that crazy amount you're talkin' about.

If it's worth that much to you, then grab it. But if you're not even sure about the game itself, it might be better to pick up a loose cart and try it first. The resale value on Earthbound is solid, so you can get about what you pay for it on ebay if you don't like it.

I don't think any game would be justified at that price.
Okay, maybe a few. But not many!
And I'm thinking that this one is not one of those few.

Hell no. Not even close to worth it.

In my book, it was the best game ever created until its sequel.
And no, it's not worth $200.
If Nintendo doesn't want to make the game available to you, I see no reason to pay inordinate amounts of cash to people just looking to rip you off. Emulate that sucker. It's a wonderful game that deserves to be tried, but no game is worth that money.

exactly. all you'd be doing by paying that much is supporting the resale market, not the publishers or Nintendo. just emulate it.

If you're a collector then I agree with Corbie. The money shouldn't be an issue and like he says, you can always put it back on eBay if you don't like it.
If you're just after the game to see what it plays like then I'd say 'maybe', erring towards a 'yes' - but do you really feel comfortable dropping $50 on something you find you didn't like? Then again, I traded in some classic games for The Simpsons game (Wii) at full retail price which was a total mistake and it wasn't my first either
The reason I say yes here is maybe you'll get lucky and make a few bucks - I tend to purchase stuff really cheap on eBay and then trade in a HMV simply because their trade-in values are about 40% better than Game/Gamestation in the UK (for 3 Wii games and GTA:Chinatown Wars I was offered £36 and £52 respectively from Game and HMV)

If you're willing to deal with the language barrier you can get the GBA ports of Mother 1 & 2 combined for about $35.www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-67-49-en-15-mother-70-16oc.html

Now I am a collector. I buy cartridge over virtual console all the time. I just like to play the game, as a collector, on the original system rather than the Wii. Anyways, I have two takes on this. First, I couldn't stand the game and I don't think it's worth the plastic it was made with so if your intention is to purchase to play it then it's way too much. Now, if you want to purchase it as an investment? Then I say go ahead. The value is only going to go up with time and if it ever sees a VC release (it won't, lets stop that talk) the price will only go up because collectors will want to get their hands on that cartridge form.
Anyways, I don't advocate this for the most part, but if you're thinking about dropping that much to play it then just emulate it to see if you like it. I mean, no one should really be paying to play it anyways...just not that good in my opinion.

I tried playing the rom but it sucks, i cant stand sitting and staring at my laptop screen without a controller to play it with. I already got it so theres no point in questioning myself anymore (i did hate myself for a couple of minutes) But I sold some old cds, lps and dvds that i never really watched or cared about so i really only ended up paying around 130 for it. Considering that my plan as to buy it, play it, keep it in good condition with the thought of maybe reselling it in the future for plus/minus 50 bucks is no big deal. The cartridge alone sells for 80-100 bucks and I got the game, the guide and the box.
plus there is nothing better than owning something, I know that sounds stupid but I still buy cds and dvds and never download anything online.
