Personally, I see scarce reasons for buying games that are no good, simply because they are rare.

Many collectors incorrectly believe that possessing something which no one else has makes them somehow more special or respectable by keeping it to themselves and never allowing for their games to reach public eyes. However, said attitudes are despised by the majority and in fact promote selfish behavior, as well as giving people a similar notion which is wrong. A person is more honorable and respectable when they are willing to sacrifice the 'value' of something for the sake of others, to share and to preserve. (i.e.; Brandon Murphy of California Raisins proto fame)

Typically, there is no true fulfilling power in collectables. You may have the entire collection of Virtual Boy games but unless there is much of a reason for owning such games (i.e.; as reference material, if you are sharing data on a web/historical resource like this) then I cannot see why one would be paying outrageous prices for games you will never use or play. Perhaps to some it is entertaining to engage the repulsive quality of games like Insmouse or Waterworld, but for 300-400 dollars, you could be purchasing more enjoyable and entertaining titles, making a ROM download a better option for that case. Likewise, you could invest in numerous other practical non-game items.

However, as referenced above, it depends more on WHY you collect.
This is more of a question to the people who actually spend that much themselves to own those kinds of games, the kind of person you may be selling that rare game to that you've found in a thrift shop cheap.

Any questions, comments, or critique are welcomed. Please show respect to everyone in your replies.
