It's too late now as the Virtual Console release of Earthbound will likely slightly deflate the market on second hand copies of the game, but I had this idea of buying a new, factory sealed copy for the sure-to-be unholy sum of whatever-the-guy-wants. It's been sealed for ages, it's super rare, and no one else sane enough to do this has a copy of their own. I would love to get the copy... and then open it... and play it. Seriously, why wouldn't you open a damn game? I get why it being sealed is more valuable, but you're such an asshole for treating games like that. Games aren't meant to be stored and tucked away like an investment. They're supposed to be played and enjoyed and experienced outside of the box art. I think the purveyors of classic gaming memorabilia have just got it wrong.
