Buying and Playing A Few “Expensive” Retro Games- Gotcha Force, Moto Racer Advance, and College Hoops 2k8

Game collecting has been booming since the pandemic started. Even before the pandemic the retro gaming scene has been on quite the come-up but right now things are pretty wild. One of the weird things that happens with video games is that certain games unexpectedly get pricey. I try to not to spend more than sixty dollars on any game purchase (which makes the new generation’s 70 dollar price tag less than ideal). The thought of buying an old Gameboy Advance game for sixty dollars is perplexing to a lot of people but I look at it the same I look at buying a new game for full price, the experience is worth it. If I put in the time and really enjoy a game regardless of when it’s released, it’s worth the money. The pandemic really got me delving deep into the retro gaming space and I was lucky enough to find some expensive game available to buy in person. The three games I have had the pleasure of playing are Gotcha Force for the Nintendo Gamecube, Moto Racer Advance for the Gameboy Advance, and College Hoops 2k8 for the PS3/Xbox360.
