Quoted from Russell:
I think their value will fall, especially since they are being remade. I think they have already peaked in value, and are headed down.
you appear to be an outlier and someone that is always interested in the cult of the new (nothing wrong with that)
Based on prices/supply/demand classics from the 80s and 90s continue to be harder to find and prices have gone up.
At the same time the newer stuff is already coming up in larger numbers on the secondary and prices are dropping.
What I have seen much of it that when a new title comes up, you are still getting some older/longer collectors that are cutting loose rare and nice gems from the 80s and 90s. These quickly get scooped up and then sit in new collections.
Over time, the older collectors have parted with their non-keeper classics. Now we are seeing the newer stuff that has already lost its flavor coming on the secondary just a few years after they bought it.
The other aspect i have seen in the hobby is many new colelctors that have no knowledge or desire to learn how to maintain games. They have focused largely on new and are now out of space. They are also cycling out stuff form 2012-15 era already in favor of chasing new titles or paying even higher prices for restored examples of classics (that they wont have to work on since restored)
