Yea because the discs & cassettes are on magnetic tape unless they were stored correctly you don't know if they still work. So its an area I'd be cautious in when collecting. Unless they are cheap then it doesn't matter too much.

still remember a tale from back in the day of someone paying £150 or more (pretty sure it was more) for an import of SF2 on SNES & you know what? its still a litle amusing, that post just brought it back to me

I have a vague memory of some SNES games being like £60 to buy, I think one time like £80. I guess it cost a lot to manufacture the games or retailers wanted to make as much as possible. I'm assuming the latter though.

SF2 SFC was very expensive when it first came out. Our local video store got a copy in and rented it out for $12 a night.

Got a DVD rack thingie for $6 at the recycle shop today. The PS2 games look good in it.

The PS2 games are in alphabetical order now as well. That was a pain in the arse to do.

I hope that means you are done buying PS2 games. Otherwise the next game you buy that starts with A is going to be real fun to add.

Yeah I've thought about that. I had to redo it a few times when I found another game that started with E when I was doing G or R while doing T etc., which sucked. I probably will get more though. I got Final Fantasy XII PS2 for $4 when I got the rack, there will probably more cheapies there in the future.
