I've been slowly collecting for the system ever since it died. But bills need to be paid. I was going for a complete collection and like to think I was close. I hope I get something for all of these. I didn't and could not bring myself to get rid of the ones I marked keeping. So try to talk me into keeping more if I don't sell em all by the time I look back at the topic tomorrow. Love the dreamcast still. Cheers.

You weren't close to a complete set, but nice to see you have your priorities straight (well as straight as they can be I guess). Hopefully they don't completely rip you off but most places don't even offer 50% of the value.
Remember, they MIGHT get the average going rate on eBay when they resell your games... they will probably give you half of that.

Yeah, in all honesty, it's probably just best for you to hold on to all of them and try to sell on ebay in one package. People will bid.

Noooooo don't sell it! You'll regret it later. You'll get a little money now, piss it away and then not have any money OR games. Lose lose situation

I don't think paying his bills is "pissing it away".

But I agree, I wouldn't sell them unless the value was a few thousand or more, which by what you posted, is not.

The time and effort you will put into selling them, might as well put up ads for odd jobs like painting, yard maintenance, general labour (in your spare time, I'm assuming you're already employeed).

I know but it's only a short term solution for a problem that can be fixed in other ways (as you suggested above) while the Dreamcast, if taken care of will last much longer and probably provide more happiness over time.

@ShaolinAced So what did you ultimately decide to do? Keep or sell?

If you happen to miss any game you end up getting rid of, a "backup" of said game is easily obtainable. 

At least, that's what I've done. It's not like I stare at the packaging while I play.

I got just around 1000 dollars. I do regret selling them but I did keep my favorites.

Seems like they gave you an incredible deal. Not going to price it all out but that seems like it would be close to the actual worth of this lot.

Surprising they gave that much (US$ cash). Local stores tend only to give 85% value (and this was like 95/% value) for in-store credit.

Yeah well it was all complete with no scratches on nearly every disc. That and a couple of dreamcasts and 3 controllers and two memory cards.

Good games to keep. I would have kept a couple more like dynamite cop and bangai-o but you can always buy some back when you have the cash.
