I just bought a Gamecube and went to my local movie rental store and found Mario Sunshine for 10,00$ and Zelda Foursword Adv. At 14,99$ knowing they are more expensive online ive decided to buy Mario and come back for Zelda in 2 days... 2 days later Zelda IS GONE!!

Ive been looking everywhere for it since a weeek now and the best price Ive found is 40$ ... I bought it ( Im a Zelda geek )

So yah my most expensive game is Zelda Foursword Adventure on Gamecube 40$

What about you?

I bought Skies of Arcadia on GameCube last year. It's a somewhat rare game, and even though I got a "good deal" at $45+shipping for a complete copy, that's a lot of money for me to pay for an older video game.

I think spending £60 on Fire Emblem for the Gamecube is the only time I've spent more money than the game would have cost at release. I'm sure you've already learned this yourself, but if you see a game for a price you know is below the price it usually goes for, grab it there and then!

The most expensive game I ever got, even though it is not old is Pilot Wings Resort for £44 on the 3DS release date.

Normally I would question why you would pick up 2 copies of the same highly priced old game, but considering its Lunar 2, I don't think I will. That game is good enough that a backup copy is a good idea.

I still have Lucia's pendant hanging around here somewhere... bought the game when it was new in stores, too. <3

As for me, I payed $50 for Xenogears a few years back...

I paid about $100 for the Metroid Prime Trilogy after it went out of print. That's the most I can remember spending on a single disc.

What, like full moons, silver bullets, and eyebrows that join in the middle?

Well I'm such a collector (hoarder) that all of the games I own, that are rare, I got them around launch (Earthbound, Xenoblade, Metroid Prime Trilogy, etc). Now, I do remember going back and buying a few games I never owned on N64, but got them around $20 at a local retro video game store.

$120 for 2 copies of Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 (first the Nintendo Power flash cart version, and then as a backup, a loose copy of the rarer retail cart)
For a single game: $100 for a complete copy of Adventures of Hourai High School for SFC. Only to find another seller listing a copy for $40 a few months later. Felt dumb then. :(

Not sure if it counts, but I donated to save the bio force ape.

Pretty much the exception though.
