Actually 3D Tetris is pretty uncommon as it wasnít well received. I never saw a copy for under $35 even in 2012. The last 6 years have caused every game (except Virtual Fishing which was $80 back then and is now like $60?) to skyrocket on VB.

I didnít realize this either until recently. It used to be pretty cheap from what I remember.
Someone mentioned it was expensive and I was arguing it wasnít the case. Then I checked eBay. Yikes!

I noticed a price increase with all the games. I look up current prices for the series I do and my jaw has dropped a few times.

3D Tetris has been expensive for a few years now. It seems to go Nester Bowling -> 3D Tetris -> Waterworld, then Jack Bros. being the most expensive. I remember picking up my CIB copy of 3D Tetris in auction for about $100 like 3 or so years ago and thinking I got a good price.

Even in the past year or two things have definitely gotten more expensive.

Are you sure you are not confusing "3-D Tetris" with "V-Tetris"? I think 3-D Tetris has always been on the higher end of the VB spectrum in relative terms. V-Tetris on the other hand has always been one of the cheaper titles, particularly among the Japanese-only releases.

V-Tetris is the superior of the two IMO. 3D Tetris I found too disorienting.

V-Tetris is suuuper cheap, even brand new in box. And it's great fun.

3-D Tetris is interesting, I like the puzzle mode more than the endless mode. Once you finish all the puzzles, the endless mode isn't all that fun.

But just like every console, there are games that didn't do well, so not very many copies got printed. Now, decades later, some of the most expensive games are some of the least enjoyable. It's a paradox.

Of course it's not the case for every rare game on every console. But Waterworld on VB? Yes.
