I have covered this a few times before, but at one point in my life I was addicted to “collecting” games. Thankfully those days have now passed, because they typically ended with a game library that grew dusty, stale, and worthless.
Ah, but there are a few gems to be had. I am talking about the holy grail of collecting. The sought after gems on eBay. Yes, the RPGs. I recently cleared more than the original MSRP (or at least what I paid way back when) for Legend of Mana, Vagrant Story, and Chrono Cross. The common theme? All Squaresoft titles for the original Playstation. We are talking about clearing over $150 for these games, which if you think about it, is a horrible investment, but this is far better than losing my shirt, which is what usually happens when I toss up older games on eBay.
