Holy hell why are Fire Emblem games so expensive?

I was looking to buy Path of Radiance and Shadow Dragon to catch up on the series but they are ****ing 60+ dollars. Why is that?! Theyre OLD.

20$! Nice, they usually sell it for 40$ here. I remember seeing Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn at Circuit City Clearence Out of Buisness sale for 10$ Each so I bought two of each copies(last ones :3) and gave one set to a friend for BD present on one for me to Hoard. Circuit City, what a bunch of a*******.

Hey, while were on this topic, does anybody know where I could get FE7 for like 20$? I gave my old copy to a friend when I traded my DS in at gamestop for a 3DS and I recently just got a Gameboy SP so I'm gonna buy it again. Thanks in advance.

They're expensive because they're high-quality games. If you're buying one of the cartridge based games I suggest finding a used copy at a video game store like Game Stop, Hastings, or Game Xchange (here in Arkansas).

When you're shopping on amazon, make sure you aren't looking at the "new" prices. Unoppened/unused versions of video games sell for absurd prices when they go out of print.

Well, not out of print, but you know what I mean. After they stop making them.

As for finding used copies at gamestop, well, that's more luck than anything.

Oh, just check eBay and-
*checks ebay*

...oh wow, these games have aged pretty well, price-wise. I was expecting Golden Sun to be at a higher price...

Seisen no Keifu is long, boring, jarringly slow, and thoroughly overrated.

I have PoR sitting right next to me, and I sold my Wii.

I can't wait to get $60 off of someone...making a profit on a game for the Gamecube? Yes, please.
