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.

Talking home console stuff right, not arcade?

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.
