7 Rare Games That’ll Cost You an Arm and a Leg to Buy


7 Rare Games That’ll Cost You an Arm and a Leg to Buy

One of the many boons to owning physical instead of digital games is that they may become rare and they can act as an investment. As time goes on, the price and rarity of a game can fluctuate due to how many copies it initially sold, if it ever got released, and what system it was released on.

Based on that idea, we’ve done our research and compiled a list of seven games that are surprisingly hard to find. Be sure to leave your thoughts and any games we may have missed in the comment section below.

Pokemon Soul Silver/Heart Gold

Pokemon titles have a reputation for being popular games that are surprisingly expensive to buy once you go back a few generations. The rarest games in the Pokemon franchise are Soul Silver and Heart Gold, remakes of the second generation of Pokemon games for the Nintendo DS.

Just the cartridge themselves is the price of a new game, totaling up to around $60 to $80 each depending on where you live. If you get the complete in-box package, you’re easily looking at more than a couple hundred dollars for just one of these games with the case and manual.

It doesn’t make sense why they’re such rare games, as the games aren’t really even that old; perhaps it’s just the product’s quality. Pokemon Soul Silver and Heart Gold are incredibly replayable, as it lets you go back to the first game’s region and beat their league, and it has a beautiful art style, so maybe that has something to do with it.

It’s a great Pokemon remaster. It’s just a shame you have to pay an arm and a leg for it.
