Those are both good points.  I think Masamune is right about the 80’s/90’s kids fuelling a rise in prices, but it is possible that some might give up before death.  For example, people may give up on retro collecting when their career and family responsibilities become higher priorities.  

At this point in time, a lot of SNES collectors are in their late 20’s and early 30’s.  In other words, they are young and many can afford to spend their disposable income on old games.  As they get older and start raising families, their priorities may shift.  Would a 28-year old single guy be comfortable dropping $800 on a CIB copy of Earthbound.  Probably.  Would a father of 3 be comfortable dropping that same amount?  I am not sure.

Antarch raises a good point about hardware deterioration, though I suspect this will impact disc based consoles and disc based games much more than SNES carts.   SNES carts are very hardy and the SNES itself has no moving parts, so I can see the SNES lasting for many years to come (much older Atari 2600 systems still work for example).

Now playing: SNES - Phalanx, R-Type III, Genesis - Bio Hazard Battle, PS3 - Dragon's Crown

Even if people’s priority’s change, will this stop the resellers from asking for absurd prices for these games?

I once asked a seller on Ebay would you consider lowering the price on an item I wanted from him since I thought his asking price was too much. He said no and if it didn’t sell, he would just keep it in storage.

Anyone get anything nice for Christmas?  I was given Resident Evil: Revelations for the Wii U. I also got some brilliant hardback books; the Amiga Commpendium and the Super Famicom Box Art book.

Ooooh, Wild Guns Reloaded sounds good. I dig the SNES original, lots of fun in 2P.

I got Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 recently for my PAL Saturn collection.

Bought Mass Effect Andromeda and will buy Persona 5 next week… but more importantly, I bought my first SNES game in like a year+ I believe! I finally decided to get my hands on Super Mario RPG. Haven’t played that in 20 years!

I bought Touhou Genso Wanderer Limited Edition, Maximo Ghosts to Glory, Maximo vs. Army of Zin, Mana Khemia 1 and 2, Alundra 1 and 2, Shanghai II, Imperium, Snoopy vs. the Red Baron, Saiyuki: Journey to the West, Grandia, House of the Dead Overkill, Suikoden I and II.

This is all during the past 2 months. A lot of obscure games I know, but a lot of the lesser known stuff turns out pretty good.

ooo Suikoden I and II! I love those games. Did you get the physical games or digital ones on PSN? II was pretty expensive last time I checked 😮

When there’s a choice, I always prefer physical. Both Suikoden games were purchased physical. I was able to get II a little bit lower than Ebay prices, so I feel good about that.

So many games to play and so little time. frown
