If you grew up playing Nintendo games and haven't been able to part with your favorite games, there may be a new reason to give them up.

I don't recall the exact year, but we got a Nintendo game system one year for Christmas and played that thing for days on end! It only came with a few games. Super Mario Brothers, The Legend of Zelda and Duck Hunt are at least a couple that I remember playing until my mom warned we would "burn the game up."

If your games didn't perish after playing them at length, there could be some big money involved!

A copy of the classic video game Super Mario Bros. has sold at auction for a record 114-thousand dollars.  The unopened copy of the 1985 Nintendo Entertainment System cartridge was picked up by an anonymous buyer Friday in Texas.

It was just a week ago that we had an appliance delivered and the delivery guy was noticing our stash of games and seemed very interested in them.

What's not to love? Sure the graphics were not the greatest. But the games were fun to play and everyone loves a classic, right? There may be a case in which you have not opened an old game yet? It could be an investment you never even knew you had!
