I have several games worth a lot: Suikoden II, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, etc... but never worth THAT much. I also have some Ninja turtles from the 1980s still in their original packages, but they are worth barely as much as their original price + inflation.
But, as a note, when it comes to games, the moment digital versions of them come out they lose a lot of value (I think Suikoden II went down by like 50%). Maybe games with less attention that won't get ported/remade would be what to look out for.
You think so? Digital is ok since it gives people a chance to play a game without paying a premium (they likely wouldn't in the first place). The hard copy will still be in demand by collectors. Emulation is pretty widespread yet it hasn't damaged the going price of many NES/SNES titles.
Yeah, I thought that would have been the case too, but apparently the same thing happened with Earthbound when it came out on Wii U VC.
My Suikoden II was once worth about 600-1200 USD used, now down to 180 USD, so its dropped even more. Sealed versions are still worth quite a lot though. Suikoden 1 has gone WAY up, before a used copy wouldn't sell for more than 50 USD - and could be purchased for a lot cheaper than that, now it's up to the 80-200 USD value. So, I don't know, maybe there are other things that impact value.
Personally speaking, the SNES was my most played Nintendo console all the way up to the Wii, and the Wii replaced enough of the available games with digital versions that I put down my SNES for the last time early in the Wii generation. PSX would have been my most played Sony platform until I began picking up all the games on the Vita - and now I can't go back to it because my memory cards were all no longer working last time I checked.
Honestly, there are some Wii games that I wouldn't even want to sell - especially the IR third-person shooters which is an experience I don't think will be had again any time soon unless some smart developer actually uses the Joycons to their potential. Also, the Wii had the best line-up of rail shooters - they were similar to the light-gun style shooters of old, except better. Its one of the things I'm pissed off hasn't made its way onto the Switch... anyway, for a Wii collection, I'd say get ahold of those. Unfortunately, some of those are download only.
