How Much Can Your Old Video Games Sell For? [Infographic]

Have you ever wondered how much the old games in your collection are worth? As it turns out, people are willing to pay a surprisingly high amount for titles that aren’t even that rare. This infographic looks at the highest prices 13 popular video games have managed to fetch online. Time to dust off those old PlayStation One classics…

The infographic below comes from online gaming outfit MyGamez. It breaks down the top prices paid for iconic video games from the ’80s and ’90s on online auction sites. Surprisingly, even games that sold millions upon millions of copies at the time of release can still fetch a pretty penny. For example, Final Fantasy 7 recently sold on eBay for $1237 — nearly 25 times its original value.

If you’re serious about gaming, you probably have most of these titles in your collection. If you hardly ever play them, it’s probably time to sell. Now all you need to do is find a gullible buyer.

  • No way any of those games are actually worth any of those prices, regardless of their condition.

    Except maybe Tetris. But not really.

  • This is bullshit. I just checked on ebay for FF7 for PS1. Currently selling for 40au odd. I’ll leave my mint condition dusty covered games in the plastic container for another 10 years

    • Thanks JohnDingo. Very misleading. I was getting excited thinking I could pawn off my FF7 and resident evil games for the PS1 at a premium price. Very mint condition…looked after my games very well

  • Most of the ebay listings are for factory sealed games with excellent/perfect condition or are not for resale, also i wonder if these are ‘auction’ prices or ‘buy it now’ prices? can make a big difference.
