probably next year we will put demons crest on vc, until then, id like to see the ebay market prices shoot up tremendously.

Buying retro games is like playing the stock market in trying to pick the next "hot" must have game before the price go's through the roof. Demon's Crest is one of those I bought low and could sell high. I'm waiting for @ogo79 to release his next bestseller; Super Mega Retro Collecting Advance Guide for Sexy Gamers to learn even more from the master!

what about Nintendo buying the gamers so people would have to buy themselves back to become gamers again?

whats funny is the only games that really spiked this last past year and a half that ive noticed would be little samson, dragon fighter, power blade 2, zombie nation and panic restaurant. but dragon fighter is the new gem. that was my secret weapon i was telling you about. sqoon for nes is one of those thats stuck in the middle, kinda like kid klown and run saber were, then all the sudden kid klown and run saber tripled in price lol.
sqoon and bloodlines are the creepers, always have been

It was probably Mike Matei's review that raised Run Saber's price (I had previously got a complete RS for like $25, that quickly became the loose price), as well as Clash at Demonhead, Guardian Legend (from like $3 to $15), Gun-Nac (like 25 to 80). I think that might've also drove up S.C.A.T.'s price.
I guess it's good then if Mike puts Crisis Force next to Legendary Wings in his collage of bad shooters in his review. :)
Game was already inflated to like $50 in online auctions, even though when I was looking for one it was only worth like $10 in Japan.
I've lost track of Zombie Nation, it's been increasing for awhile.

The reason you paid more is because you got a physical copy. Its a collector and there for its worth more in its physical state. A digital COPY does not warrant those ridiculous pricing. As a collector, I would gladly pay that for a physical game if its worth it. As you can't physically see the game to know if its in mint condition or not and since digital copies don't have any wear and abuse, its not as valuable as a physical copy. The OP's idea is unrealistic. Go home, your drunk.

PS: think of it like this, should a copy of the Mona Lisa be worth just as much or even half the price as the original? No. Should a replica Lamborghini still be worth the same price as a real one even if its a dang good replica? No. Get my point. The original is always gonna be worth more because its more valuable.

they should stop the VC entirely to then make temporary auctions on 100 copies of a single VC title starting at the humble price of $100!!! :p

I can't believe @ogo79 would suggest something like this! Is he crazy? Has blowing into his cartridges finally blown his mind? Time to sell all your worthless plastic retro junk and buy a real system and become a hardcore gamer!

i actually own the original mona lisa painting so if selling fake ones doesnt put any money in my pockets im not with that idea myself!
also its funny because i just bought a lamborghini as a late birthday present for myself and im can assure you theres no such thing as a replica. and all the women that have jumped in my car are original too.
hey you have a fabulous day over there :)

They also need to have digital shrinkwrap so you can download it twice and have one to play and another to resell.

I totally disagree with this topic, doing that would make Nintendo as horrible as Gamestop with their jacked up prices on Xenoblade and Metroid. If you pay tons of money for a game that's your choice, but don't expect others to have to do the same thing. Jacking up the prices keeps new people away from discovering a great game.
