Funny, I remember buying new games for the Nes, Snes, Genesis, TG-16 and Sega CD. Can't remember the exact prices.

I have an old receipt from Kay B Toys. NASCAR '99 on sale for $39.99 for the N64.

The most expensive game in my collection... Hmm...

I'd have to say, Christmas Carol.  That game turned out to be the fruit of a Faustian deal--it rob me of almost two years of life, made me miss Christmas (of all things!), and almost cost me my marriage.  Not to mention a not insignificant amount of money in promoting and supporting the launch.

In the end, I'd do it all over again; though I'd be more careful in keeping my marriage and holiday traditions. :)

Wow. Quite pricey indeed. I bought a copy and am happy you made the necessary sacrifices.

By the title of the thread, I first thought it meant what game I have that is now worth the most. Now that I understand, I have never paid more than retail for a game. Bought many of my VCS an NES games new way back when, so will guess $40-$50 range is most I have paid for any given game in my collection. I have some rarer specimens in my collection, but mostly found them on the cheap.
