This will be probably one of the last few retro game "I bought" posts about games. Because I have just finished my collection (300+ games strong!) Only started properly in January 2016 but I learnt so much about collecting games. Right now the only game purchases left for me are to replace worn out copies or ones suffering from yellowing. After that the test of time will determine my collection's condition after that.

As for my latest purchase, it was my last Gamecube game and more importantly the one that sky rocketed my love for Nintendo which was Super Smash Bros Melee at a humble £32.

Other purchases involved Tales of Symphonia for £30, the 3DS Louvre Guide in English for £28, Baten Kaitos for £30, both Boktai games for £54 and a very lovely condition Mole Mania and it complete for £45.

Okamiden. A really amazing game if you enjoyed the original Okami or 3D Zeldas.

I'll get The world ends with you soon , those 2 games are the best ds games for me.

Pretty much only importing these days. Surging Aura and Rent-A-Hero for Mega Drive, Blood of Bahamut and ASH for DS (wasn't that by the Final Fantasy guy? Well, it's a touch-screen only RPG, it looks like. Maybe that's why they didn't localize it but then again Nintendo of America was probably nearly as gimmicky as Japan.), as well as ordering Cosmic Fantasy Stories for Mega CD. Though about ordering the PCE series while it's kinda cheap but then I hear CF2 was about one of the blandest games Working Designs localized, said the guy who stepped forward to make ROM hacks reverting all gameplay changes WD has ever done.

That's a great game, but the Wii remake, complete with motion-shake controls is far superior.

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong.
Urban Champion is GLORIOUS.

I almost dropped £20+ on the Gameboy Advance Player (Disc only) for Gamecube but had pre-buyers remorse. Are they super rare or something? Average eBay prices for the complete set is £60+. Not sure if I can justify that price.

@DBailey
Not super rare per se, but it is very common that you will find a GB Player without the disc, making the Player useless, hence the inflated prices for a complete set.

Picked up a copy of Sonic Adventure for the Dreamcast for $2.98 at GoodWill. It's a beat bit up, but hey, it's a complete copy for $2.98!

@the_shpydar The only logical explanation is that people lost or broke their discs, leaving a lot of orphan hardware. I think until like 2009 or so (around when I got my player), NoA still had spare discs for sale but I'm sure that has long since dried up. (although I find it funny that people were selling their unwanted Wii Sports discs on ebay for, also, above Nintendo's asking price, while it was still a pack-in exclusive)

@the_shpydar @KingMike

I saw GameStop charging $70 for a copy of Bayonetta 2 for Wii U with both games.
Wow that is very pricey, that's definitely collector pricing.
Bayonetta 2 alone I thought was like $30 and the PS3/360 versions of the first game I thought were like $10. Is it on Steam too?

But I suppose in time Bayonetta 1 will become one of the pricey Wii U games when collecting that takes off in like 10 years (people will probably collect because it's a comparatively small library at under 200 disc games, I think. Not as small as a "small" library like the 32X, Virtual Boy or PC-FX.)
Though I imagine the costliest will be something people haven't heard of.

@KingMike
the guy i know asked me for my sealed bayonetta 1 and 2 because he thinks its gonna be worth something some day.
he has 5 of them already. he went to all the gamestops around here and picked them up.
he also went to all the walmarts and got all the wii nunchuck controllers.

@ogo79
So he's the reason i haven't been able to get a copy for a good price! Not that i even have a Wii U, but you know i love me some Bayonetta so i want to get it just on principle (and the thought that one day i'll buy a cheap 3rd-hand Wii U maybe).
