A lot of people are looking for ways to make a little cash during these tough economic times. One way to make a little extra cash is to sell some old stuff that isn’t being used anymore. Any old video games laying around can be sold to used game stores and some of the NES games can be sold for the most amount of money.
First keep in mind that these are prices that used video game stores are selling NES games. A seller will not necessarily make this much selling their NES games, the prices are just a guide to show which NES games are the most valuable and therefore can be sold for the most. Also keep in mind that some used video game stores have some sort of flat rate no matter what the game is. Try searching the internet for used video game stores that pay more for more valuable games and these are some of the NES games that will net the most cash.
Some of the most expensive used video games on any systems are roleplaying games. These games are a lot longer, have very passionate fans and sometimes are even rare. The most popular video game series is probably Final Fantasy and the original Final Fantasy on the NES can probably be sold for a good amount since it still costs as much as $39.99 at some used NES video game stores.
Before the Final Fantasy series took off there was Dragon Warrior. The original Dragon Warrior is what got me playing roleplaying games but it isn’t worth that much. The second and third Dragon Warrior games on the NES are worth a lot to NES used video game stores. Dragon Warrior 2 goes for as much as 24.99 and Dragon Warrior 3 goes for as much as $49.99. Dragon Warrior 3 is the most expensive NES game I’ve ever seen at a NES used video game store.
Another classic NES game I loved to play was Ducktales, based on the popular cartoon series. Ducktales is not very valuable but the sequel, Ducktales 2, is. When Ducktales 2 was released the 16 bit systems had been introduced so NES games were not very popular and so Ducktales 2 became a rare game. Ducktales 2 has sold at used NES video game stores for as much as $48.17.
Used NES games that cost over $40 are pretty rare but there are a few others as well. Contra Force is sold at used NES video game stores for as much as $47.95. There is also a shoot em up game called Gun-Nac that goes for as much as $43.10 at some used NES video game stores.
There are many other games that sell at used NES video game stores for somewhere between $20 and $30. Some used NES video games I have seen for that price include Bubble Bobble ($27.95), Casino Kid 2 ($25.95), Contra ($27.03), Galactic Crusader ($25.95), Metal Storm ($24.95), North and South ($29.95), Qix ($24.09), Rainbow Islands ($26.75), Super Mario Bros. 3 ($22.95) and Legend of Zelda ($24.95).
