It dosen't matter of his career is dying, Pat's shrine of autistic plastic crap is a safe investment that will earn him an early retirement I'm sure.
Pop culture "investments" are a ticking time bomb and are only relevant to people who grew up with said subject.

It happened with Elvis merchandise, a few years ago, pieces were worth an absolute fortune, but now those who were nostalgic are losing interest or dying, his merch crashed and is worth fuck all.

I fucking hope the "retro gaming bubble" bursts and all these nerds that spent a fortune buying multiple copies of all the new games and would buy any "hidden gem" that Metal "I worked at Sierra!!!" Jesus mentioned cry about how their collection is worthless now.

I fucking roll my eyes so hard every time I see someone "I don't know much about the game, but I had to get it after seeing it was rare!!!" or "I saw SierraJesus mention this game was going up in price, so I grabbed a couple copies!"

Well, if they're in for the money, they deserve to be despoiled. I once made an expensive purchase of a collector's item, but I didn't do it to get a profit; I bought it because I wanted to own it, and I had the expendable income to afford it.

The NES bubble is already bursting. Granted those $500 games are not bursting but a lot of the common titles are going back down to under $10. Basically the bubble is moving onto SNES and genesis, after about.....I'd say 2 more years N64 will spike up and SNES will be old news.

Contra is a good example of the retro bubble as a whole. Everything peaked around summer of '16 and ever since then it's been on a download slope for a lot of games.

Also remember the 90's are super in still right now, go to any clothing store and you'll see nickelodeon t-shirts.

Thing is, even in the 2000s on eBay the games weren't completely worthless. Just way less people knew about value and online sales and thus far more stuff was being sold locally for pennies. I can't see them dropping below 2010 prices any time soon, and that fuckboy Pat undoubtedly got most of his collection pre-boom so sadly I don't think theres any way he can lose out even with the bubble bursting. Its the faggots who jumped on board the retro fad in the last few years who have the most to lose.

Don't forget the dumbasses who just have to have every EVERY Limited Run release. The only Limited Run game I bought was Abe's New n' Tasty for whatever LR charged for it, probably £29.99 or something. Check eBay now, people are paying £100+. I could make a killing just grabbing every LR game on release and flipping it on eBay because people are that stupid.

I want that bubble to pop like beanie babies.

I want to bathe in the tears of "game collectors".


EDIT: because Carn decided to edit in a quote to me instead of just making a new post...

LimitedRun games are the biggest "catering to collectors" racket.
Fucks cater to the reseller/scalpers market.

I would think they would just take orders and print enough... but no. I think I read that they tried it, but it sold really poorly. When they asked their customers, they said "no point in buying if they wont be valuable".

I think they limit to 2 "per person" (GOTTA HAVE ONE TO PLAY AND ONE TO KEEP SEALED...), but Im sure thats not hard to bypass.

I have no proof, but I would be infinitely surprised if the dude that runs LRG didnt scalp a couple dozen copies himself.

Yeah, like for example saturday morning RPG, a literal $1 game on steam being sold for $100 online.

I must confess I'm one of those dumbasses, I've panic bought LR games in the past, only to realize they were shovelware shit.

LR keep screwing up my order as well, Ordered a collectors edition of Y's Origins, and they sent me FOUR Copies of LawBreakers instead (two of them collector editions) >.> I swear they're trolling me.
