As the years continue to move on, old games that were once thought of a new releases become more and more valuable. This is particularly relevant for those games that were released back in early 1990's.


A new study out of SafeStore that was published just last month has measured the price inrease of a selection of old retro videos and compared them to what they are worth today. The study shows percentage increases from the games' original prices to what they are going for now. This gives buyers an indication of what they potentially have stored away in their dusty old collections.

Some of the titles that have had their prices equated and their percentages measured are 1992's Sonic the Hedgehog, 1998 Metal Gear Solid, 1991 Street Fighter II, 1996 Pokemon Red and Blue, 1996 Super Mario 64, 1991 Super Mario World and more. If you are interested in checking out the image provided from the study, it's located in the entirety of this article. Not that long ago, a super rare Pokemon trading card worth $60,000 was lost in the mail, more on that here.

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
