    Question What's the most you've ever spent on a single video game title?

    Let's hear it folks. Not your most valuable game, but what you've actually shelled out to buy one.

    Please share, fellow Big Tymers.

    Not counting cabs I'm pretty sure I paid $100 for Neo Turf Masters on MVS back in 2002 or so, a bit pricey but IIRC I bought the first one that I could find since I was really craving it. No regrets.

    If we're counting cabs, quite a bit higher

    I've never played NTM... I know, I'm a sinner.
    Not counting consoles, but I suppose a dedicated non-MVS or non-Candy Cab cab counts as a single title.

    The top 3 off the top of my head:
    MSX English AES - $800 - About 5-6 years ago
    AoF 3 English AES - $600 - About 5 years ago
    Bubble Bath Babes NES CIB - $500 - About 6-7 years ago.

    These days I rarely spend over $100 on a single title.

    Garou Mark of the Wolves AES $500 around '00. I got it way before the Dreamcast release. Money well spent. Had a blast playing with friends.

    I've bought a few 500 dollar PCBs that's pretty much been my max and don't really see myself doing it again in the near future. Maybe that Psycho Taromaru game on the Saturn would be an exception if the stars align right.

    Well for a dedicated cabinet, I got my beatmania IIDX cabinet as part of a lot, and the seller valued it a bit north of $2500 on the tax records, so I guess that one.
    Not mine pictured but one like this:

    $200 for Snatched on Sega CD a few years back. Sold it for $250 last year. I kinda wanted to rebuy it but the prices it goes for now are retarded.

    I paid $1300 for a JPN MFBL pcb, and $1100 for a Ibara Kuro full kit.

    Or maybe it was the other way around...

    I keep thinking about 4 years ago when a old member here listed a copy of Slug 1 AES (jpn) for $1800. I still think about if I could have grabbed it. At the time I was seriously considering going up to $2500 to get a legit copy. Now that is chump change for what it would take to buy it. Fuck that game MVS all the way, too many fakes hell $2500 now wouldn't even come close today. And stupid as fuck for me even considering it back then.
