Are you one who collects for future resale value?

If so, what will you do if the next great depression hits and people struggle to buy clothes and food, much less luxury entertainment items like video games and systems? Are you prepared to holding onto those games and systems for the long haul?

Long haul, I suppose. Which won't be much of a struggle as long as I enjoy playing the games. Smile

I do not like owning expensive games. Most of the classic Atari games seem to not be very playable. So I tend to trade or sell to buy what I want.

So you mainly collect to play, it sounds like. I am confused though: You do or do not buy Atari games because they are 'not very playable'?

As for owning expensive games, I don't, as a rule, pay more than Goodwill prices for most of my games. Have a large collection, but haven't paid more than $3 for most of my games.

My bad. The classic Atari games that are rare or expensive are the ones I avoid. I have spent a few dollars more than I should have for Snoopy and the Red Baron & Star Wars: the Death Star Battle. Both fun games for me.

It is funny that Atari, Coleco and Intellivision rare games are usually not that fun to play but can be expensive to purchase. While later systems like the Nes and Super Nes have more comon games that are fun but can be expensive to buy.

The later Mario games, Earthbound, Secret of Mana and the Donkey Kong Country games come to mind.
