The retro gaming market is on fire in recent years. Games from the '80s and '90s with original packaging can sell for big money. One individual found an unopened Kid Icarus game for the NES that sold for much more than the original price from back in 1987. 

At auction, a sealed copy of Kid Icarus for the NES sold for $9,000 on Thursday, according to a listing on Heritage Auctions. The description for the game says it was found in an attic and was still in the original J.C. Penney bag.

I know but growing up I had a MUCH more extensive collection than what is available on that thing.

So did I, but it's still fun. I'm ready for the turbographix mini.
