“I’ve been on a video game kick recently, so let’s talk about rare and valuable video games. For the most part, these are older games and fall in line with the ‘rare means valuable’ rule that is common to collectibles” writes Avery-Taylor Phillips of Equities.com.

“There’s something important to note about these games, however: It’s often not the game itself that is valuable. After all, you could probably find a digital copy on the internet, even if it’s being sold (don’t commit cybercrime just to play a game, of course). Old also doesn’t quite equate to valuable, as you can find arcade games and old Nintendo systems for sale, targeting millennials who wax nostalgic for the era. Instead, it’s the actual cartridges (or “carts”) that carry the value (or the boxes, as we’ll soon see).”
