Pricey games
« on: April 09, 2018, 10:28:37 PM »
I've been filling in a few gaps in my collection recently, and everything I can find about pricey games is pretty old, though obviously there are a lot of constants.  I understand there was some kind of price increase in 2014?  Anyway, I'll make a quick list to satisfy my curiosity and help snagging any bargains.  I'll generally try and list stuff that sells for over 100.

Hucards:
1941
Magical Chase
Tatsujin
Soldier Blade Special
Gunhed special
Darius Alpha
Bonk 3 special
Coryoon
Geshika Boy
Power League Gold
Final Soldier Special
Bomberman '93 special
Yokai Dochouki gold
Hana Taka Daka
Terra Cresta II
21 Emon Mezase
Mizubaku Daibouken

CD
Sapphire
Dracula X
Sylphia
Kaze Kiri
Faussete armour
Double Dragon II
Dead of the Brain
Renny Blaster
Steam Hearts
Bazzaru de Gozzaru no gemu de gozarru
The TV Show
Horror Story
Terraforming
Super Real Mahjong teh rarez naughty version
River City Ransom
Madou Monogatari
chiki chiki boys

Laser Active
Vajra 2
Akuma no Shinban
Zippang

That's it off the top of my head, did I miss anything?

Renny Blaster

Steam Hearts

Dragon Knight & Graffitti

Ninja Gaiden complete in case with instructions might be up there on price as well.

Not sure what the two Macross games go for these days...

Nice, thanks for that.  I'll do some digging

gah, I always get that wrong. 

Updated.  Macross seems pretty cheap, but that's quite a hefty list.

Horror Story is also an expensive game now.

Some missing ones: Final Soldier and Bomberman '93 special hueys, Yokai Dochouki and Power League gold hueys, Madou Monogatari, Terra Cresta II, whichever Super Real Mahjong is teh rarez naughty version, the six kids games for the ten key thingy, and some of the LA games (Vajra 2, Akuma no Shinban, Zapping, and ?).

Some that're getting there and will go over $150 on a bad day: Aldynes, Double Dragon II, Hana Taka Daka, and Terraforming.

Thanks - yeah I remember looking at Aldynes and being baffled that it had gone from about 20 to like 80.  I will update

The River City Ransom remake is very, very pricey, easily $150+. Shame more people haven't tried it.

All those late CD-Rom Capcom ports by NEC Avenue (Dynasty Wars, Strider, Chiki Chiki Boys, Forgotten Worlds), are well above $70 each...especially if you want a complete Forgotten Worlds (with Avenue Pad 3)

I was a bit annoyed I missed out on Strider recently for andecent price.

I presume you're not including things like the Hudson HE development academy CDs, which were only released to the graduates of the program, and now sell for thousands of dollars.

Here are some other pricey CDs:

Shogi Database
Magical Story I
Nexzr (original, not the Summer Carnival version)
Rayxanber III

Edit: For HuCards, Parasol Stars and Liquid Kids/Mizubaku Adventure are starting to get up there as well.

Nexzr has ridiculous prices, but looking at sold items, it usually sells for about 70.  looks like people are just looking to cash in.  I'll check the other ones out when I get a minute

What's the difference between the regular and gold version of Yokai Dochouki?
