How Much Money Will You Have to Spend on Used Video Games?

By: JJGames

By definition, it seems, used video games are cheaper than the new ones sitting on the shelves at the store. This is doubly true when you are buying games for used and older consoles.
You know that these games are going to be cheaper, but how much cheaper? How much money will you have to spend on used video games? Imagine you went online with some cash, how many games would you be able to buy?
The amount you will spend varies based on the type of system you want to buy games for. If you want a popular game on a relatively new system, then you will be spending more.
Some of the older classic games are some of the most expensive, because they are so popular and held in such high regard by players. So if you have a Super Nintendo system and want one of the Donkey Kong or Super Mario games, expect to pay about $25 to $35 each.

There are many other cheap games for the Super Nintendo system though, so you can still stock up.
There are some other games, more underrated classics which are inexpensive, like Gex. But the wide range of titles will enable you to get many of the different genres - racing, shooting, role-playing, action - without paying a lot and still getting the most out of your Nintendo 64.
There are more expensive games out there for the Gamecube system, including the newer Mario games. Older games, like some Sonic the Hedgehog titles, can be found cheaper. You can find many Gamecube titles for not a whole lot of money.
The availability of used games also extends to the Gameboy Advance titles, which can also be scooped up for under 20 dollars, where games like Simpson's Road Rage and others top out.
In order to really make help your budget through bargain shopping, you need to consider the Sega Genesis. If you had 20 dollars, you could get about six games for the Sega Genesis, including some cool movie tie-in games.
No matter what, the age of the game and the console you are looking for are going to set the price you pay for used games. Keep a look out for the classic collectible games that demand a higher price.
Many of these game titles are as low-priced as they will ever be, so watch as your money is able to go far when you decide to buy them.
