I've seen Zak Mc Kracken go for 280 US$ on Ebay. Also, Apidya is about 70 - 80 Euros nowadays. I got a hold on "The Patrician" and learned its usually about 50 US$. Amberstar, Ambermoon and Eye of the Beholder I/II go for insane prices as well sometimes.

Dune II ... still trying to get a hold on that one :/

Edit:
I just bought Indy IV (Fate of Atlantis) in mint condition for 15$, so good luck to the guy who wants several hundred for it...

Edit2:
I had an offer for 45$ for Maniac Mansion in mint condition, but couldn't get over myself to pay that much at the moment...


Not seeking to contradict you, *but* I've also seen a couple of the games you mention go for under $10 complete in box.  In fact, I bought one of them myself for a few dollars.

Ultima isn't expensive... I just sold V and VI for just over £40 for the pair, new in box.
Moonstone regularly gets
£80 or so, I'd take 10 at $10!

A couple of days ago on eBay, I saw a used, boxed copy of Castles of Doctor Creep (for the C64) sell for $280.  Are there any valuable Amiga games?

Dunno about amiga games but this C64 gem should be quite valuable:

@ajlwalker

Yeah, the Gametek version (super street fighter turbo). I accidently omitted though that its specifically the cd32 version which is valuable. AGA version is still uncommon so probably worth a little money too (dont quote me on this though), but the cd32 version Ive seen only twice, and both times it went for roughlty $500.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

I wonder for how much longer though. These things go in waves, nobody born in the last 25 years will care.

Then there is of course 'Indiana Jones Fate of Atlantis' right now on E-Bay. Seller is asking $650 for it.


I've got two words for anyone thinking I'll pay that sort of cash!

@fishy fiz

Thanks for the reply.  Typical.

I just checked completed listings on ebay and nothing, so perhaps, like you say, mine is worth something afterall.

I do not know about valuable, but I do know rare: Monkey Business. (Made by the Bruce Lee / Zorro people.) Never seen a crack.

I think the Ultimas value are really the Apple II versions.  I've seen some of the C64 versions fetch a decent amount also...  

It's tricky, because the Amiga doesn't seem (to me) to be in that "collectible" age/range yet..  It's not one of the first like the Apple's (No, don't go into the Altair or the SOL's here.. ;-) .

The things that are really expensive for the Amiga are the things that are rare and yet people still want to use (68060 cards, video cards, etc)..

When I see sealed copies of Mindwalker actually selling for hundreds, then we'll have reached collectible status..  
IMHO

Hey all,
 
Well, I've been buying some games recently... most of the ones I've seen go for good cash are Zac McKraken and Maniac Mansion, some rare/old peysnosis games like Brattacaz, Agony (though not so rare but still expensive), Traps & Treasures (went for over 100 ukp the last one I saw) and P.P.Hammer which I offered over 100 euro for and still went out of my hands...
 
Cheers,

Haven't a scooby doo where you guys are looking but on eBay UK (which I check every day) Amiga games very rarely even sell at just 99pence boxed or not... ;)

Most of these games get re-listed time after time without any takers (often wonder why the sellers do it) and very rarely do you see a game selling for more than around £20... ;)

Emerald's Mine for the CD32 always seems to bring $50 or more.
 
For such a popular game they must not have sold very many original copies.
 
I haven't ever seen the floppy version forsale.

A quick google shows it was written by Ron J Fortier (who did bruce lee, not zorro) and was released by other valley software (which was founded by Ron). The only version available online appears to be on the ST.

Ultima: Escape from Mt. Drash for the VIC 20 is probably the most valuable one. I've still got my original cassette, but sadly the box and manual are long gone.
