Videogame Selling

I sold my videogame collection! It's sad, but it was long overdue. I haven't touched 90% of those games, since I moved to Oregon. There's no real point in keeping all my old NES or Gameboy games. The Gamecube/Wii games were harder to part with.

I thought I would get $75 for everything, but I ended up getting over $800 in store credit. Um, wow. I guess keeping games in the original boxes is a major money booster! But really, I only did it that way to save on storage space. I wonder which of the games were worth lots of money! I could have sold them on eBay or something.

The one game I didn't turn in was Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (GCN). I know for a fact that game is rare! I sold it on eBay for over $100, easily.

What will I do with all my in-store credit? I dunno. I guess I can buy Switch games and resell them on eBay or something. I sold the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game on eBay, for about 2/3rds the price of a new copy. I assume new copies go for more on eBay.

That's too bad you sold your games but its definitely understandable, especially when you would rather spend that money on a vacation or time with family. If you got store credit, I would suggest exploring some Switch games, or potentially buy a used PS4. There's some great PS4 games that might be more up your alley like a port of Syberia, a new remake of the King's Quest games, and other point and click adventure games that are making a gradual comeback. It's also nice you can use a PS4/PS3 as a Bluray/DVD player if you need a Bluray player/extra DVD player in the house.
