"Gold ribbon" is basically just the SNES's greatest hits line. I've never noticed any real price difference between ribbon vs no ribbon versions of games.

I think the whole "SNES IS THE GREATEST SYSTEM EVER" thing you see pretty commonly on the internet contributes to it a lot.

I know what you mean. My obsession gets to a point where I end up buying the game again since a CIB listing on eBay usually has a perfect condition box.

Really saddens me to see eBay high prices for these games. Makes it harder to collect.

I already own Earthbound, Yoshi's Island, Super Mario RPG.

Now, I am going after a game I've wanted for a long long time to complete my Soul Blazer trilogy collection. Terranigma. The Pal version will sadly cost me $70 or so. But this week I finally think I'll purchase it. I'll also need a Pal SNES too.

Even with wireless, I still sit close and play on a relatively small television. My current tv is a 24", anything beyond that feels too big to me. I think coming up on 9" and 13" tvs just trained my brain that way and I never untrained it, heh.

I use those as well. I finally ran out of my initial 100 bunch. I just ordered a new batch of them.

Sadly no. You have to modify them. That's what I did. The easiest approach is to use a soldering iron. Just be warned, it takes a while. I spent an hour yesterday modifying ten cases. Takes about 5 or so minutes per case. Biggest issue is sometimes I accidently rest the cylinder part on the case and melt part of it.. But I haven't messed any up too badly yet.

Ideally, if I were to get into SNES collecting, I'd get a CRT. However. I live in a tiny apartment, so I wouldn't have the space for another setup.

Amazing collection, man. Some really rare stuff in there too. Awesome to see that sort of thing.

I highlighted the Konami collection here because the artist that did a lot of the Konami covers from those days was awesome. Does anyone know the name of this artist? Would love to look into his work.

edit: Also, sad story. I traded in mint boxed copies of Zombies Ate My Neighbors and Ninja Warriors back when the N64 came out so I could get money for Wave Race. Wave Race is awesome as shit and I love it, but I wish I had come up with another solution.

It seems like the hardest thing about collecting is finding a deal or a fair price even. We have a pretty expensive hobby and are no strangers to buying consoles and games new. I'm sure that a very large % of people here could just say eff it and buy whatever game they want today right now even but no one wants to do that. That takes the fun out of it. We all want to find some garage sale box of Hagane, Earthbound, Super Turrican 2, Mega Man X3, Chrono Trigger etc for $50 total because outside of those who aren't gamers and those who just see it as junk, everyone is watching the internet and setting prices accordingly. It's late now. Gone are the days when you could go to Blockbuster and buy rare games for $6. I feel that Gamestop buying out all the small game stores is also partially responsible. Luck is almost required now.

This brings back memories. Quoting one of my first posts on GAF from 2007. I never actually actively collected SNES games. These are all games I bought retail, used, or got through trades back in the day. And I actually beat all of those games, unlike the shameful backlog I amassed from PS2 onward.

Originally Posted by George Claw M.D.

These are all I have, on hand, at the moment. My other games are on loan, indefinitely, to my sister. Seriously. She borrowed most of my non-RPG games for a slumber party, years ago, and I've never made the effort to get them back. I'm sure most, or all, of them have gone M.I.A, anyway. I don't know what happened to my missing RPGs, though. I used to let a few friends, who were also RPG fans, borrow games. Although I've kept a list of all my games, I'd never kept a list of games I'd loaned out. I've learned my lesson, since. My biggest loss is not a game, but my Nintendo Guide for Final Fantasy III. It was my favorite game on the system, and that particular guide was the best one ever created for the game. I loaned it to a friend, whose dog got to it, and I got it back all torn up, and ruined by dog slobber. Thank goodness he already had the game, and didn't need to borrow that, too.

Anyway, with a heavy heart, here are my games that are M.I.A.:

Donkey Kong Country
Final Fantasy III Nintendo Guide
Flashback
Lagoon
Lufia
Lufia 2
Mario Paint
Mega Man X
Mega Man X 2
Mortal Kombat
Mortal Kombat II
Out of This World
Pocky & Rocky
Rock N' Roll Racing
Soldiers of Fortune
Street Fighter II
Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting
Sunset Riders
Super Bomberman Party Pack
Super Empire Strikes Back
Super Mario All Stars
Super Mario Kart
Super Metroid
Super Return of the Jedi
Super Star Wars
Tecmo Super Bowl
The Legend of Zelda: LTTP
The Magical Quest: Starring Mickey Mouse
Tiny Toons: Buster Busts Loose
UN Squadron
Weapon Lord
Yoshi's Island
Young Merlin

I also had a Japanese cartridge Dragon Ball Z fighting game, that was given to me by a friend. I don't know which one it was, since I don't read Japanese. I thought it was fun, back then, even though it often boiled down to who had the fastest finger in fireball fights. I broke off the inner cartridge tabs of my SNES just to play that one game. I don't know what happened to that game.

I use a 27" Toshiba for my retro stuff with most systems going into a component switcher.

For SNES, I use a GC cable with s-video, its noticeably more crisp and vivid than composite.

There on the way up now, at least the more well known ones are. Clay Fighter Sculptor's Cut was always considered the rarest non-variant/NFR game, but until recently the cart wasn't all that expensive. Now it regularly goes for well over $100.

"Nintendo Preimum" sucks and really drives things up. Just take a look at how cheap Genesis stuff is in comparison to SNES.

The price on that game in particular has skyrocketed over the past 2-3 years. I remember seeing it on eBay for about $20-25 not too long ago.

N64 is on the way up. It's already hard and expensive to get the Blockbuster exclusive releases, and stuff like Conker is only increasing.

It's funny how a thread like this would have the exact same comments 10 or so years ago. It's weird too. With all the major games mostly available through online stores, retro compilations, and remakes, I thought this would have died down by now.

Good luck to all of you starting a collection. Starting one now must not be easy as there are no more video stores or stores in general dumping their old stock.

I think part of the reason the SNES is more collectible than the 64 is because the games are 2D.

2D games hold up better and as a whole are much more playable and enjoyable than early 3D games are today.

I've always loved the SNES, and I enjoy collecting for it. Those boxes are difficult to keep in good condition due to the fact that they're made of cardboard. But tracking down those things in pristine condition can be a lot of fun, too. And expensive.

Here's a crappy photo of all the CIB SNES games that I own(and a few other consoles as well).


Cart only, not pictured: The Adventures of Batman & Robin, Tetris Attack, Illusion of Gaia, Breath of Fire, Mega Man Soccer, R-Type III, Sparkster, Hagane, Final Fight III, Pocky & Rocky, Super Mario All Stars w/ Super Mario World, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Joe and Mac, Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems, Tiny Toons: Buster Busts Loose, Animaniacs, Ren & Stimpy: Fire Dogs, Earthworm Jim, Earthworm Jim 2, Ranma 1/2, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse, Battletoads in Battlemaniacs, MK2, MK3, Mario Paint, Road Runner's Death Valley Rally, NBA Jam, Maui Mallard, The Lost Vikings, Super R-Type, Darius Twin

Over the years I've sold off a lot of the common titles that I never feel compelled to play anymore due to space restraints, so these days I pretty much try to stick to games that I personally enjoy. Though I envy those who are able to amass complete collections.

In a lot of ways, 8 and 16-bit games are like the baseball cards of our generation. Kids who grew up in the 50's and 60's made Topps cards from that era expensive collectibles when they became adults with disposable income, and kids from the 80's and 90's are doing the same thing with their video games.

Probably at least half of my SNES games were purchased new, and I never really throw anything away, but, boxes and stuff take up way too much space, so I just flattened them down and stored them in boxes in my basement along with the manuals. I haven't checked, but they probably got lost/left behind/thrown out in my move last year too. Kind of sucks, but not the end of the world. I'm more concerned with having the games to play. And, considering the amount of games that I have, and the amount of space that I have to work with, as I said, boxes just take up too much space. I know I'm a horrible person.



In any event, I'm at 135 SNES games, including stuff like Earthbound and most of the other SNES RPGs, as those are my favorite types of games, and most of them were purchased when they came out as well. Still adding to it as well though. I wouldn't really call myself a "collector" - everything's purchased with the purpose of playing it, not just collecting it - but, the SNES is my favorite system, and there are so many great games out there still yet to discover.

I really wish I could tell you...I guess I like it because it is nice to have the boxes just for completeness, I can pull it out and look at the back of it...and stuff. At times I wish I didn't have this problem and could buy just loose carts but...ahhh well!

I've also been very fortunate to get some boxes in pristine shape like my Kirby Dreamland 3 box, that thing was in like new condition!

It's the same deal for me. I don't give a shit about the boxes. I did buy up a bunch of plastic cases for my carts, though, and have been meaning to print out some covers for them, but yeah, the cardboard boxes are more or less garbage. Well, aside from the value they provide if you're gonna sell the game.

But that doesn't really matter any if one isn't planning to sell them, and only makes the cost of acquiring them higher.

I'm not saying I don't understand people wanting game boxes - I have a number of Baseball cards which are, of course, nothing more than pieces of cardboard as well, I understand having things for the purposes of collecting/looking at - but, their impact on the value of it only really matters if one is planning to sell them at some point, which I would never do with my games.

Yeah, it's the same deal as baseball cards. Like, what's worth more, a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle with dented corners, or one in near mint condition? Same basic thing applies to old games. It's really a matter of these games becoming older and becoming rare to find, especially in good condition. Of course, unlike baseball cards, you can actually 'play' a video game, so people who collect just to play may have a different perspective.

Well,

To be fair, I always keep the instructions to flip through...but invariably I'll keep the boxes on the shelf for a few months to a year then just dump them. If the game actually comes with a case then I consider it part of the game (and that gets kept).

Today I took a little walk to see what's up in the stores SNES games-wise, found this for 40$ and it's pretty much in perfect shape (the colors seems washed out but it's because of the cam's flash). :)

I needed this one badly, just forgot about it with time. Already 1 hour in, fuck yeah. I already went through the DS version but now I'm hyped for the real thing.

It'd be a worthwhile investment to get started now, prices are only going to go up as time goes on. I definitely hear what you're saying about lacking in space, I'm in that same boat. I often buy stuff because it's neat or rare and then I run into the problem of figuring out where to store or display the darn thing.

I needed this one badly, just forgot about it with time. Already 1 hour in, fuck yeah. I already went through the DS version but now I'm hyped for the real thing.

That is $40 now? Good lord.

Picked this up a few years back for only $7 I got really lucky on a mis-pricing at a blockbuster. Looking online now, it goes for way too much.

Yep, the prices changed in a bad way during the last 5 years. :(
