Question Value of old original big box PC games?

This sales thread here:
For Sale - Huge collection of old Skool big box PC games.

I'm amazed at the prices being asked here. Are these old games really worth the money being asked?

I've got a huge amount of these taking up space at home, most in top condition. If they get the sort of money that is being asked on that classifieds thread, I'll put them all up for sale!

There are collectors of stuff out there, and since PC game boxes are a rare thing nowadays i'd expect there is a good market for them. However, a lot of those are not very rare, which limits their value somewhat.

There is always some mug willing to buy stuff off the internet tho ;)

Cardboard... how quaint :D

Could you even install these games on modern machines?

I'm digital for all my media now and so much happier for it.

Collectors? I liked the old Big Boxes - I have Dungeon Master for the ST somewhere that I bought a few years ago, just for the memories.

Oh tiny Tiggy, the Japanese Warrior (Iaido), the lady with the black hair (Wu Tse) and the fuzzy wookie (Daroou) one, you where my go to guys....

I suppose it depends on the game. I might have a few boxes in the loft but probably binned a lot of them as they would just be taking up space for no reason.

Even just some original games in CD jewel cases get priced highly depending on what game it is.
