"With innovative gaming genres that contained characters now etched in time, games like Super Mario Brothers and The Legend of Zelda were so influential and such landmarks to what we have now that they still define an era of original role-playing games. The gratitude for these iconic games are well-to-do web sites and various retail stores who buy games from gamers, and then sell them back to other gamers. And with comic books and sports memorabilia getting auctioned off for top dollar, you would think collectors would do the same for original games. So selling them must be worth it, right?"
