What's the most expensive Nintendo game, or you have seen

Do you mean that has become expensive or was expensive when I bought it? If we are talking about a game that became expensive after I bought it, probably my copy of Earthbound on the SNES followed by my copy of Chip N Dale's Rescue Rangers 2 on the NES. I bought each for $20 back in the day but are now going for alot more.

As for seen, when I went to gaming conventions I seen alot that were expensive. Games like Earthbound, Little Samson, and alot more. Some were normally expensive due to the collector value some though we're just inflated cause you know it's a gaming convention.

I'm pretty sure getting MGS The Twin Snakes for GameCube either new or used goes for like upwards of 200 bucks these days

Games you have seen or bought that could be more expensive and must be worth more then $100 dollars

I bought Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door on eBay for £50 about four(?) years ago, which I thought was fairly expensive at the time (I had a £25 eBay voucher but I would have been hesitant to buy it at that price otherwise), but these days I think you'd struggle to find a copy for less than £100, so I'm very glad I got it when I did.

Well sir, I had no idea. I've had this since it was new, played once and then stored away ever since.

Besides the above that I just found out about, I also have a copy of Mega Man 7 for SNES I got almost 20 years ago for less than $20. It's not mint by any means, but it's complete and worth a heck of a lot more now. Never bought it expecting that, just a Mega Man game I was missing at the time

Aside from the sealed mint-gem copies of Super Mario Bros. on the NES that go for 100k+ at auctions? Or the rare cartridges for Nintendo World Championship '90 that can command 10k to 20k? Those are usually the stories you see regarding top-dollar Nintendo games.

Personally, the most I've spent is $100, twice. Once for a copy of Retro City Rampage and again for Bayonetta 1, both on Switch.

@EngineerMario the most expensive game i bought was viewtiful joe for gamecube, it cost 200 euro for it around 16 years ago. i can not remember any other new release on a nintendo machine been any more pricey..they stil sell the game for around 180 euro and if your buying it, be careful which colour cover of the game you get as there's a real cheap one that only has gameplay that will last a few day's, it was just a small collector's item, the real game is alot better..

I've seen a complete in box Earthbound at a used game store for $600. I own a loose cartridge myself, but the most expensive Nintendo game I own is (I think) a cib Chibi Robo for GC. That seems to be listed at $150 - $200 lately.

@Anti-Matter How on earth Pokemon Black 2 is that expensive?! I bought mine second hand for 15$!

@Zuljaras I’m actually not too surprised by that as my answer is Pokemon HeartGold. I saw a used copy on sale for £78 in a game store in 2016. It was at the height of the Pokemon Go craze and I guess since demand was so high they bumped up the price.

Pretty worthy since it was my first limited print game i have ever bought.
But i wish the limited print games like that not get touched by scalpers.

Never owned Super Metroid when it was new but used to rent it a hell of a lot.

Anyway, the game had become rare here by the mid-2000s and I was desperate to play it again, so I jumped on eBay and bought a boxed copy with instructions (pre-owned) and paid an arm and a leg for it. This was after I'd been outbid and lost a few auctions for the game, in the days where eBay was more geared that way.

Can't remember exactly how much I paid as it's too long ago but I know it was in excess of 100 bucks, which then was expensive for a SNES game more than a decade old. This was before SNES era games came back into booming popularity as well so it seemed a steep price to pay at that time.

Little did I know later on that games like Super Metroid would be available on various virtual consoles...hell even now it's only a couple of clicks away when I fire up my Switch. And every time I head into the Super Nintendo library on the Switch and see Super Metroid, I'm reminded of my eBay purchase.

The lengths I was willing to go to to play a much-loved game in a time when virtual consoles didn't exist I guess. Now a host of the classics are available right at the touch of a button. Amazing how far we've come in 15 years.
