15 SNES Games That Are Worth An Insane Amount Now

The NES concluded its life cycle as the 16-bit era began, and for Nintendo, that transition took the form of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or SNES for short. The system blasted onto the scene, and while it had some serious competition with the SEGA Genesis and TurboGrafx 16, nothing slowed it down. The system dominated the market (mainly due to the simple fact that it had an amazing library of games). Some of those games are hard to find today, and an even smaller amount of rare SNES games are extremely collectible and valuable.

These days, there are certain SNES games that are so hard to find that they can sell for hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. Random eBay auctions routinely pop up with versions of games that were either never opened or are incredibly hard to find, and collectors are often chomping at the bit to outbid one another in a mad dash to finish their collection. Though not all classic SNES games are worth a ton of cash, these ones stand as the rarest, most sought after, and most valuable SNES games ever produced. Note that the games listed here don't include factory-graded editions (which typically bring in more money). Instead, we've listed games that tend to sell for ridiculous prices either complete, unopened, or sometimes both.

Check out how much these rare Super Nintendo games are worth today, and try not to kick yourself for trading all your old games for store credit at GameStop back in the day.
