Cripes is GC doing the same thing? I have a nice size collection and with the exception of Twin Snakes and Ikaruga didn't think anything would be abnormally valuable. I think it's crazy what retro is doing and if I was ready to sell any of my games I'd rake in a ton.

Not sure Wii had the kind of stuff that would become rare. Outside of the first party games there was a LOT of third party fluff that rushed in because of how well the hardware sold. Chances are that's all you'll find now. Everyone keeps the first party games. Even then you're right. Now's the time to buy any leftovers for Wii/PS2/PS3 because they're cheap. Can't say they'll go up in value, one can hope though. Do like I do and buy because you want to play. If they go up then cool. Gaming is tricky in terms of investment. They're only worth what someone is willing to pay.

I think a lot of PS2 games will just always be cheap. https://www.pricecharting.com/console/playstation-2 The graph on this page shows price barely moving. The bottom of the PS2 price curve was around 2013. Prices have steadily increased since then, but it's been a slow crawl compared to pretty much any other system.

Cool website.  I had never seen it before.

The Wii sold much closer to the PS2 than the Gamecube.  Do you think its games will also follow a price pattern more similar to the PS2?  There are just going to be a lot more Wii games floating around out there than Gamecube games.
