I'm Selling My Videogame Collection (Large ebay sale!) (Phase I)

[ Edited ]

Hey everyone,

 

So to finance studying abroad for 6 months or a year in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and then a summer to study spanish in Spain, I am selling most of my videogame collection as a series of eBay auctions.

 

Unfortunately, eBay has decided to rate-limit my total number of allowed listings, so this sale is going to have to be conducted in phases until they decide to change their mind.

 

I'd like to note that most of these items are listed as "very good"... in most cases this is accurate but I do not consider the condition of commodity jewel cases in this decision. Everything I sell is authentic, playable, and with CD-key (if needed), or I will get you another disc (it might have to be burned) or refund your money. See listings for details.

 

So... here's all the games I am selling for phase 1. The items that eBay decided to list are more-or-less random as it cut off new submissions arbitrarily.

I never realized until just right this minute that Darkportal's name had a 4 at the end.

Duke Nukem 3D and the original Need For Speed??  I'm not sure I'd sell those if I still had the box and everything.  Could be gaming collectors items someday.

They probably already are! And the unedited GTAIV!

Duke Nukem 3D and Need for Speed SE is just the disc

 

We'll see what kind of money they fetch when the auctions close. I'm crazy like a fox for setting the price to $.99

 

The only games I have any real trepidation over are my original 3.5" copies of The Ultimate Doom and Doom II in the box. But the Ultimate Doom poster has too many holes in it to be worth anything and I am sure the floppies have degenerated.

I really wish I kept my original copies on 3.5" disc now. Once they were released for $2 on CD I bought those and tossed the 3.5" and boxes.

A videogame collector isn't really looking to install the game from the disks anyhow.  If they just wanted to play the game, I'm sure they can find it elsewhere (like Steam).  I assume what they're really looking for is an unopened box, or one that has everything in mint condition.

 

I still have my original Duke 3D Atomic Edition disc.  I had all the original boxes and manuals to that and probably 20 other classic games from the early-mid 90's (in excellent shape), but they all got destroyed when the basement flooded about 5 years ago.  Nothin I can do about it now.

Sadly, there just aren't many games I don't have already. :smileytongue:  That said, I got my bid in for Chex Quest. :smileyhappy:
