I spent £130 ($165) on a PAL version of Frogger Beyond for the gamecube.
Collecting is one hell of a drug. I have a fairly small collection of PAL GC games but this is the first of about 5 chase games I wanted to get.
N.B. Before you Americans go into ebay and say hurrdurr this game is only $20 I need to point out that the EU versions (specifically UKV) versions of this particular Gamecube game are actually quite rare.
A local game stored is going out of business, and therefore selling out their stock for cheap. Picked up Final Fantasy Tactics, Xenoblade Chronicles 1, and a N64 gameboy adapter for really cheap. All 3 of those are things I've looked at online several times, and they're always really expensive.Spent like an hour in there and didn't get my christmas shopping done as a result ;-;
Xeno 1 is like a tales of symphonia for gc before they re-released it loads of times.
A gcn copy would go for $80 in 2014 but now it's about $30.
That being said I bought Xeno 1 as preorder as I thought it looked neat but I never touched it until 3 years later. It's a good game but the English voice acting is pretty grating. Still haven't completed it but i had to retrieve it from my parents household alongside tales of symphonia when my mother decided to give the Wii to my younger cousins.
Buying physical copies of rare games is a pretty good feeling and I understand why collectors do it
