You think that's still hight listen to this...

You know that game "Need For Speed: Most Wanted" the 2007 version. It's still like $40 used anywhere and I sold my copy money hungry GameStop and still got $20 out of it.

I have no idea why but that Need For Speed is the only one with any sort of value and its almost a decade old. Idk if its hard to find or what but its still worth a good but I'm kinda sad I sold it to be honest...

Serious answer: Because they go out of print after some 3-4 years on the market. Game Freak does this intentionally so they can
(a) force their customers to "upgrade" to the latest generation;
(b) milk their old titles with "remakes" later on.

You won't find any new copies of RSE/FR/LG or Diamond/Pearl/Platinum on retailer shelves anymore. HG/SS are next to go out of print.

TL;DR version: It's all about Game Freak ripping off their customers (business as usual)
