I've been buying a bunch of Gamecube classics over the years and I've been loving them. I'm sure I can get at least $350 for them, because I've seen multiple collections less valuable than mine get 450-500 on eBay. The problem is I'm not sure if I want to let go of some of these games. My best friend has a GC collection too, so I'll still be able to play Melee, Zelda games, Metroid Prime etc and I can borrow them from him anytime. I'm just proud of my collection, but I REALLY want a Wii U after all those announcements. I'll probably have enough to get a Wii U deluxe with NSMBWU.
I have:
1080 Avalanche
Animal Crossing
Donkey Kong Jungle Beat
F-Zero GX
Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
Mario Superstar Baseball
Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes (somewhat rare and my favorite game of all time, really gonna hurt to let this one go)
Metroid Prime
Naruto Clash of Ninja
Naruto Clash of Ninja 2
Paper Mario: TTYD
Odama(with mic)
Resident Evil (the remake)
Sonic Heroes
Star Fox Assault
Super Smash Bros Melee (rareish)
Tales of Symphonia (VERY RARE)
Zelda: Four Swords Adventures (rareish)

IMO, no. I love my Wii U but I would never trade in that many good games for any console.

Also, I wouldn't consider Melee even rareish. Then again, I somehow have 3 copies...

Yes.

Move on! Wii U is the now, where you can amass a new collection of classics.

Especially considering none of your games are rare, you're not losing a lot, and can always buy one or two back if you ever get the itch.

What I meant by rareish was... expensive. Plenty of copies out there, just expensive to buy. My bad

I know Melee and Zelda aren't rare, just expensive, but Tales of Symphonia isn't rare?
And that is true, or I can just borrow them back from a friend. Hoping they just remake a few of my favorite classics for the Wii U. They're doing that with Wind Waker :D

I somehow missed that in your collection...

Just keep tales.

With all those games (and a few of them being rare, like you said), I'm gonna say it's not worth it.

some of these gamecube games have wii ports but still i wouldn't sell them, just save up, by the time you can afford one there should be a price drop and better games for much cheaper.

My opinion was to always keep games, but realistically, think of those RPGs that you won't bother to pick up again. Better to give them to a more worthy cause and also free your room for other games
