ninja gaiden trilogy on snes is selling for 150$ locally

That game's value has been sky high for a lot of years now. I don't think any of the old Ninja Gaiden games will ever be in the 2 dollar bin.

I picked up Conker's in a lot with Zelda, a controller and other games for $25. Where I live, people don't seem to know what their N64 games are worth.

I know. A place near me wanted THREE dollars for the original Ninja Gaiden. :) (really, NG1 does seem to be by far the cheapest of the three. I guess people decided they wanted to finish the original first, and then... :D )
(but I passed it up, because that was right after I bought all three NES carts in a set on ebay :( )

As much I would love to have a copy of the SNES Ninja Gaiden Trilogy for my collection, I am sure I wouldn't play it all that much though. The music was changed and somethings were censored (green blood, really?). The NES games are some of my favorite games of all time and they will always be near my NES to pop in whenever I get the urge to be a Ninja.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

@Ryno

That's how i somewhat feel about Super Mario All-Stars for the SNES. I was never too thrilled on the 16 bit SNES renditions or the Super Mario World-like SFX for the SNES versions of SMB1-3....It basically ripped away SMB1-3's distinct sounds as they were completely different and seperate from one another and made them sound all simular in tune and far too much like Super Mario World. That classic Mondo magical NES feel was tarnished in the Pillsbury process with all 3 versions. My favorite thing about All-Stars would have to be the Game selection menu and SNES Box art. :p Everytime i see the SNES version of SMB2, it makes me want to cry Shy Guy tears. :P Not a fan of that version at all(The same goes for 1 & 3), even though I've got it on the GBA.

Although it was pretty sweet getting SMB2:Lost Levels, for those who care(unlike me) although it looks like a Ninja Gaiden Hayabusa Jaquio infused Hell storm as far as difficulty goes plastered on a sequal that looked like a complete boring and uncreative Add on-hack to the original SMB....I'm sure it's a great game, but it's too much the same as the original in every way possible....I'm not hating at all on SMB1, It's one of my favorite games of all time.

But yup! Thank god for Doki Doki Panic/Super Mario Bros 2 USA. B-)

I remember renting that back in the SNES days.

I was never a big fan of the Ninja Gaiden series due to how hard the games were. Heck I remember my friend and I couldnt even beat the first Ninja Gaiden using the Game Genie. We would use the infinite lives code but we would still get stuck on the same part and just couldnt get past it. Freakin hard games.

I've beaten Gaiden I-III, and III: The Ancient Ship of Doom like I've same numerous times makes the other two Gaiden's at least i found a walk in MCDonalds Rainbow chicken nugget Park. :p Limmited continues play a role obviously, but the game is just relentless towards the end especially. You need 2x the Ninja turtle skills to beat this devilishly tough bad boy. I still can't believe i ended up taking out the final boss with one tiny trinket of life, it was one of the best "OH MY F***ING GOD!" gaming moments of my life. Never have i felt that much intensity in a videogame! :o Well, there was the final Boss(that i still can't beat) in Blaster Master. :p All in all, it was a jolt to the radical shell shock system if you will and it's another constant reminder how wimpy and easy most games are today. I miss these REAL challenges, as to why I always prefer opting for a new Retro experience over modern. B-)

As far as the original Gaiden goes, I HATE how if you lose to Ryu's Father you have to start 2 or 3 levels behind but that's still a god send than having to start back at the beginning once you run out of the lives in Gaiden III.

Did any one also pronounce 'Gaiden' wrong back in the day? I always blurped it out as GAY-den rather than GI-den.

@Wave:
I never played Super Mario All Stars for the SNES, played Super Mario Bros. (All Stars) on the Wii version for a bit (didn't like how you jump through the bricks you break instead of getting knocked back down) and just overall wasn't into it. I would rather play SMB 1-3 on my NES. Remakes are not my thing in general. Even Metroid: Zero Mission I find Mother Brain lame. I would much rather play the original Metroid included on the GBA cart. But speaking of SNES Mario's though, I would love to have the Super Mario World non-players choice box! :0

I haven't got around to NG II & III but I finally Hayabusa'd my way through then end of Ninja Gaiden. :D It's nice to finally have beat one of my favorite games. Does II make you restart the previous level if you lose to the last boss? It's a Bloody Malth pain but it definitely makes you become pretty good at that last level. Yes, I used to pronounce it Gay-den. I know III is going to takesome serious Ninja skills.

Yep, I know All Stars for the Wii and SNES is the same though I would still like the SNES All Stars copy too with World for my collection because Luigi has his own sprite in that game. I have seen the non-players choice boxes of Super Mario World on Ebay so they at least released it for awhile.

What good is a cart if you don't have that shnazzy retro Box/BoxArt to go along with it plus the awesome manuals, or even the inserts? :p
It just looks awesome having the box in your collection, rather than a bunch of stacked carts. My collection is a mix of CIB and carts. If I can get a CIB copy cheap enough and IF i like the Box Art I'll go for CIB. Hell, I'm dieing to get Mega Man 2 CIB(I have the cart for now) because that iconic cheesy Box Art just totaly takes me back to my late 80's game renting days at my local video game store. Those Fluerescent Colored(Pink and Blue especially)empty cases behind all of those awesome NES Boxes were just too awesome.

Also 'OldGamesOnly', I'm guessing judging by the name(duh!) That you play old games .....Only? :p As much as I love retro, I've got to keep up with everything modern Nintendo, because 'then' your basically limmiting yourself to a limmited retro catalogue, although it's pretty damn massive at that so I'm sure you'll be busy gaming wise for years. Still, you lose out on the exciting new Nintendo titles of today. I mean I could care less for the N64 and Gamecube for the most part, but the Wii? Fudgin love it. B-) it's a nice blend of the RetroRebirth, amazing revolutionary motion controls when done right, awesome nintendo exclusives and the radical funkin' virtual console. NES + SNES + Wii are my favorite consoles of all time, everything else is so bloody distant it's not even funny. And i haven't even played Super Mario Galaxy 2, Skyward Sword, Donkey Kong Country Returns and many more yet so my opinion will most likely leap much higher at that! :D

Problem with me, is that I tend to always go for Retro over modern. I'm itching to play Wario Land 2 right now especially. It's probably because these are shorter yet sweet Sprite based Retro-classics which reak of so much charm and personality. Plus I've got a few more GB games i need to play in my collection, as it's bothering me that they're not complete. Never will I buy a bunch of games at once again. :p

List of total games in my collection that i still need to play....I'm currently into RE:Revelations(half way through!)

GameBoy
Wario land 2
Wario Land 3
Kid Icarus: of Myths of Monsters - (i've played it before, but it's been a while....)

GBA
Wario Land 4

3DS
Super Mario 3D Land
Mario Kart 7

Wii
Super Mario galaxy 2
Zelda: Skyward Sword
NIghts: Journey of Dreams
Donkey Kong Country Returns
A Boy & his Blob

So ya...It's no wonder i feel overwhelmed with 11 unplayed games at this point......And now Kid Icarus: Uprising is going to be released next week. :o
Should never of bought all of these games, splurging on too many new releases is a bad idea. My limit is going to be 2 games at once after everything is played. That's my mini videogame jungle for ya! :p....Oh god, and i can't forget TMNT III: The Manhatten Project, which i won't play on either of my HDTV's. The Nes + any HDTV equals one funky picture. there's wierd motion dithering goin on, on both my sets which funks up the detail in the background. weird.

I guess it depends on why you collect games in the first place. I personally collect games so I can play them. It doesn't matter if I have the box and the booklet. However, I picked up TMNT 2 and Double Dragon 2 for a combined 7 bucks, CIB, and TMNT 2 came with a Pizza Hut coupon and DD2 came with a full poster and it does feel...better? I don't know, I just know I like it.

I'm a musical gear junkie. I tend to collect higher end stuff, but I know someone who would rather have quantity over quality. The same could be said for collecting games. WaveBoy wants the total package and the value it may bring, whereas I just want to play the games. We collect in different ways, but we agree that retro games are awesome :)

I remember that all too well hehe. But then princess Daisy 'the Mushroom kingdom sleeze' stepped in along with Princess Lana and we had ourselves a Videoland Castleboneia Birdo bonanza threesome. B-) Ya, The princess was definitly in another castle, my Castle to be exact muhaha.

And awesome to hear you beat Ninja Gaiden! It's always great to get that sweet NES revenge on one of your favorite titles growing up that you could never finish as a little mullet cave monkey. Double Dragon being one of my most recent highlites along with Adventure Island which was pure insanity, i still don't know how i managed to pull it off. Grueling stuff!) and I'm trying to think if NGII actually did send you back to a couple previous stages....Hmm, it might of, can't remember. Difficulty wise, i think the challenge was on par with the original, yet i don't remember there being anything insanely challenging or frusturating during the end like in stage 6-2(if i remember) from the first, with those damn stinkin' witches and respawning birds flying in all directions which would completely cripple you and send you bouncing everywhere until you fell off the edge. :p

There's also hazard based stages this time around, and ugh.....Gaiden II in ways i find kind of superior to the first but there are thing that really pull my glitter mullet the wrong way, like that distracting clone item. ya, you'll see. :p Awesome game nonetheless with some truly memorable tracks.

stage 3-1(The Forest) and the music in particular was easily one of my favorite parts of the game. sound quality is a bit tinny in the vid'.

Woa what? TMNT 2 & Double Dragon CIB for $7? They must of had a serious case of 80's Pizza stains and epic rippage in order to of been sold for so cheap. :p TMNT 2 CIB normally goes for around $30, while DD i think is around $25. But it all depends on the condition.
as for quantity over qaulity, quality for me usually wins every time. But i don't exactly care to have all of my retro titles CIB(Game Boy & GBA for ex), it's kind of a half & half thing. It's just too awesome owning the actual box & manual since it packs more of a nostalgic punch and just leaves me more satisfyed with the purchase. And of course we buy these awesome games to play but i feel that there's more of a nostalgic overload by having the box, the manual, even the inserts(A Poster if you're lucky) plus it looks great sitting in your shelf. :p To each their own, but i like scoring them CIB(at times) so I can get that classic 80's/early 90's colorful and crazy BoxArt to go with it. B-)

So you heard that the American version of Ninja Gaiden III is hard because Temco felt players wanted it that way.
Ryu takes double damage from everything, and they removed the password feature from the Japanese version and limited Continues.

So I've heard. :p That aside, the game feels already like a departure considering Ryu's movements are a bit different, the settings reaks of SCFI Cyborg Alien military shinanigans and the music has shifted in tone quite a bit. I mean It's probably the weakest out of the 3 Gaiden's but i still really enjoyed it nonetheless....Even 'if' you had unlimmited continues, it would still be the toughest in the franchise! B-)

Also didn't Contra: HardCorps get a breezier JAP release in comparison to the extra toughy' NA release?

yeah i only play old games, the only time i turn on the wii is for virtual console. i was just under the impression that some of you are missing out on some games because if the cart is rare or expensive so is the box. yes my collection is pretty massive and yer right, i have enough old games to keep me busy for the rest of my life lol. i still need a few more to go however. i have a ps2 which i use for ps1 games and ps2 games. since its the more modern of my collection im pretty picky about those games. the newest game i have was downloading Castlevania Rebirth.

@WaveBoy - Yeah, it was a good deal. This was in 1999 I believe, and my local video game store was selling all of their NES games and they had everything CIB. If I was an adult back then, I would have bought the whole lot because they had tons of games, many incredibly rare.

Note: Those games I bought were in perfect condition. The boxes have very little wear on them.
