I'd bid if the opening amount was a little lower.

I wish I had that in my hands so I could put it back together and shove it into my NES.

Worth so much money, but absolutely worthless as a game. What a piece of shit.

Yeah I played it on an emulator (softmodded wii FTW!) and its pretty fun to see how good of a score you can get in the time limit. Of course my score sucked ass compared to the score the actual contest winner had :p

But it's definitely not worth the asking price as a game. As a collectible, maybe.

Well, it's certainly a cool thing to add to any collection, but I just don't understand paying the amount of money it goes for right now. It's cool that you can see the score you can get on the time limit, but even getting a repro of this game seems a little pointless to me.

But hey, I buy games because I want to play them, not because I want to get a complete set. It's something I suppose I can sort of understand, but this is one of the more ridiculous items in NES collecting that shows just how far some people will go to get their complete set. It's actually part of the reason I've decided to stop buying NES and SNES games and go for Famicom and Super Famicom titles instead.

It irritates me, I don't really understand it, but it's just the way people are. And that's ok.
