Goodwill Video Game Buying Guide
For a long time Goodwill has been a good source for LEGOs and Video Games for me , but sometimes I’ve just broken even when reselling. To prevent others from losing money , I thought I’d make a guide.
(NOTE : This Guide is for older Systems , not Modern.
KNOWING WHICH GAMES ARE OF LITTLE VALUE:
Though there’s a few exceptions , most SPORTS Video Games for SEGA Genesis , NES , SNES , N64 , and others are basically worthless unless you intend on doing something like making a Video Game Reproduction with it.
Also Games that were EXTREMELY POPULAR , especially Pack-Ins (Games included with the System) are , though fun , virtually worthless. They were mass-produced , so many of them are out there.
Lastly , GAMES BASED ON TV SHOWS , GAME SHOWS , OR BOARD GAMES are usually useless. Though TV-Show Based Games can be worth some , most are not.
Now , let’s assess Games with Value. My local Goodwill charges a flat rate of $5 for Games , so these titles should bring in more money than that so you will profit.
THE LEGEND OF ZELDA , especially Gold Cartridge Games , usually carry some value.
METAL GEAR : SOLID (GBC) is a rare title , but it’s usually readily available for a high-ish price .
SEGA SATURN GAMES are generally worth lots of money. There are few that are worth less than $10.
I hope this guide helps you , GOD BLESS!
