I'm baffled at how much this Def Jam game has been shooting up in value.

5 years ago I was running into this game all over the place.  I've had it multiple times for PS2, Xbox and Gamecube. I'd get it for a few bucks & if I already had it for that system I'd sell it at the flea market for $5-10.  Than at some point the price started climbing and it's still going!

 

This is certainly not a rare game. Or am I mistaken about that?  I used to come across it like it was Tony Hawk or something. 

 

Doesn't seem to be a particularly great fighting game.  It is playable and fun, very easy to pick up and play, the controls are simple.  But overall it's pretty basic & repetitive.  You can do dirty moves, get weapons from the crowd, etc., so that's a little bit unique.  It just doesn't seem to stand out to me as a great game though.

 

My only theory is maybe it's something to do with the personalities represented in the game? 

 

Obviously it's nothing new that a game starts going up in value but I'm just wondering, as common as it apparently is, why this particular game?

It's played competitively more often now so that would be part of the increase I would guess.

Thankfully the greatness that is WWF2000 and WCW/NWO Revenge can still be had on the cheap.
