I don't see the point in wasting such huge amounts of money on a game you're just going to put in a case or set on a shelf. Just so you can say you own it? To feel content about owning it?
Doesn't make any sense to me.
Hell, I heard the guy who owns the Nintendo Campus challenge cart bought it for over $25,000. Why would you do that?
In twenty years when all of these games are becoming super scarce from bit rot and whatever else is going to kill them, are people going to start opening these certified games up to see if they have a working copy?
Is anyone really buying any of these games?
You can call me a liar all you want, but if I seriously had twenty thousand extra dollars to blow and I already had a house, a good education/job, and a decent enough car I'd probably spend it trying to help people that actually need it. If you have 20,000 to spend on a game that you aren't even going to fucking play you need to rethink your life entirely.
Am I missing something? I thought $50 was about the going rate for Sonic Adventure LE.
You just can't handle my jawusumness responces.
People are starting to treat game collecting now almost like how comics were treated in the late 80's and early 90's. It's going to be pretty interesting when the bottom drops out and the collector's market crashes.

I don't care if it crashes, I don't plan on ever selling my sega/snes collection so that would really be good for all the people who just want to get the games for the matter of just playing them.
If you run a decently profitable game shop you could spend $20k on a super rare game for advertising purposes and use part of the value as a tax write of or possibly operating losses. You look at shops like Hard Off and Super Potato and they have some ridiculously rare games with astronomic values that they would probably never sell to someone, but they get people into the store to gawk at them behind glass cases.
I can tell you that if there was a brick and mortar shop near me with a NWC on display I'd probably go at least once to check it out and maybe pick something up.
