Wait... Explain this to me.

 

Sure! A poster named Rhindle the Red used to handle all the polls around here. I believe he even used the Adventure dragon as an avatar at one point too. So for a moment, it was like stepping into a parallel universe to see a person named "Rhindle the ____" with an Adventure dragon avatar asking about how polls are handled. :)

I guess I should post my answer in two parts to make it complete:

 

Back in the day - $80 dollars for Phantasy Star 2

 

Post Dreamcast era:  A little less than $400 Action 52

 

 

Since I actively play "classic" systems I think every price beyond original is a little wonky.

I'm new. Does the poll of the "week" usually last a month?

 

If there isn't something worth polling about I don't make a new one. If you have a suggestion for a poll let me know and I'll make it happen.

Gotcha. "Rhindle the Red". Hmm.

Is he still a member? Is that name open? I might want to take that name if it's open.

It's probably not possible to change names. I should have checked when I first signed up.

OK, just making sure. Everyone has a life, after all.

Jaguar Battlesphere to date (and probably will forever be) is the most expensive console game I've ever bought. 

I bought a copy of BattleSphere  a few years ago for $330 US.  I don't regret it, but it wasn't the wasn't expenditure I have ever made.  And if I sell it, I will almost certainly make more back.

I don't recall ever spending more than about $25 for a single Atari 2600 cartridge, and that's only been in the last 4-5 years.

I spent $120 or so on the Starcraft 2 collector's edition (or whatever it was called) with the intent of flipping it. 

 

I sold it, shipped it, and it got lost in the mail :/  

 

I'm sure someone, somewhere enjoyed their free game.

Lynx P.I.T.S. for somewhere near or above $200. I'm not sure that's a fair choice, though, as that was just for the awesome packaging and manual. The cart itself was (and is) something like a $40 value. That's still the most I've ever paid for a game, as most of my other game purchases were from their original runs, such as BS:G and the Scatbox and the First Star (modern) releases.

$39.99 for mario kart double dash. I'm a tightwad I guess. I prefer chasing deals and letting patience reward me with decent deals.

Went with 251 to 350 because I piecemeal bought Panzer Dragoon Saga (disks only) for the Saturn and the Sega Saturn Floppy Disk Driver (because I wanted it all and afaik it's the only game that uses it, barely .... as in only 1 side of the floppy).

 

I have only the 4 disks and the 3 sleeves for PDS (and the PAL demo disk 1), missing is the manual and the insert artwork ... oh well, it would have been much more expensive if it was complete.

Even the floppy was untested (but it worked right off the bat), no FDD operator disk (I found it quite recently at a "reasonable" price) and no power supply (works fine with a Genny 2103 ;) ).

$50 for Pokémon Blue a couple years ago, the price was crazy inflated but it was from a store I knew very well that guaranteed they saved, and what I was finding online was about $10 cheaper. They didn't save, though, and I wanted to have all three.

Oh wait I just remembered it was actually Animal Crossing for GameCube at $60 CIB.
