Gaming is not a cheap hobby. New games can cost $30 to $70 each and in some cases, experienced gamers can spend a few short days mastering their new purchase before moving onto the next challenge. Gaming enthusiasts can easily spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars per year, and sometimes they luck out with purchases that turn into small (and sometimes very large), gaming goldmines.
Here are some of the rarest and most valuable video games ever created for gaming consoles. At least one title is worth north of $100,000.
