asking if its a good deal or not AFTER buying it looks like a buyer remorse already. should have done your homework before.

I mean Mario Party , Mario Kart 64, Mario Party 2 , Mario Party 3 alone can end up costing close to 200. They're all loose carts and they're all in good condition. (label and all)

Keep the games you like and sell the others. But do it now because after Christmas the prices will drop. You very well could get the $400 back and still be left with some free games like Conker and Mario Party 3.

if someone pays you that. sell them. there's no way someone right in their mind would pay that much for only these 4 games.

it's not a bad deal, it's just an ok deal.

Loved all 3 of the original Mario Party's... Pokemon Snap was the best... Star fox, Yoshi, Kirby, Paper Mario, Conkers Bad Fur Day, Super Mario 64... all games I never got a chance to play but wanted to. All the others are either games that had good reviews or that I played at some point during my childhood.

A rough (PAL! ) estimate would make this a good deal for sure, but I know Mario Party 3 is a lot cheaper in the US than here. Probably the same with some other games.

I don't think you did bad at all. If you're quick enough on reselling some of the doubles before Christmas, you can get a good chunk of your money back. Pokemon stadium 2, Banjo tooie and Majora's mask are all triple A tittles people look for the play and to collect.

@GonzoArmstrong You can use this site to determine the current value of the games you purchased.

N64 Price Chart

It doesn't tell the whole story but should at least give you a ball park figure on each individual cartridge. Remember, though, that condition plays a big part in resell value.

I hope you didn't buy the games just to flip them as the retro video game market isn't too kind to speculators right now. :huh:

Well my collection is worth $740 according to that Price Chart that Grizzmeister posted... I'll take it. It probably was close to an even deal (all the games except Mario Party 2 were in fantastic condition.)
