If you consider the "buck per hour" rate these games offer, I'd say the God of War Saga and Ni no Kuni are strong choices.

1. A lot more PS2 games were made compared to the GC.

2. Nintendo does sell its games for a higher price longer (Mario, Zelda).

3. In some games, the GC version is better (better graphics, for example).

the easiest way to go about preserving games as you have described would be placing them into a tupperware/rubbermaid style sealable container, and placing a few "desi" packs. you can buy this in bulk for relatively small amount. desi packs range in size from a sugar packet to wallet sized, and they remove moisture from small environments. we used them all the time in the coast guard to seal engines for waterproofing.sanctuary13

Thanks, I'll do a small research on it. Do you know any good Website to see such material ?

Actually, I'm thinking it might be simpler to place the games - in plastic cases or not - in bigger plastic storage bins and have some shared anti-humidity protections for all the content in the bigger bins. It might be cheaper and less drastic!

Yes, that's a good deal.

Plus, if you're into collecting, you'll find that it's a nice console to collect games for since their not too expensive.

I bought one three years ago and it's great.

It's funny how the different hobbies follow the same development. When people started to collect stamps in the XIXth century, it was considered childish. When the first movies came out, it was pretty much the same reaction at first.

Video games were mostly an arcade thing for many gamers in the 70s and the 80s. When the home consoles became more popular, it was intented for kids. The first real "adult" games like Phantasmagoria, with a mix of violence, occult, gore and even sex, were an exception.

I stick to video games because of their time management flexibility and because I'm not satisfied with the movies that come out and today's TV shows. Like every business, the video game industry is always trying to conquer new markets. Because of that, I'm expecting more diversified and original games over the years to come since a large part of the adult population and the women seem to be the video games industry's biggest challenge.

Thank you. What you say really makes sense and it's nice to hear your personal experience. If we consider you have some of your games produced in the 70s that still work, I guess it speaks for itself.

Still, I'm wondering, even if it's just out of curiosity, if a technique like the one I mentioned in the first message could help...

Hello everyone, I want to buy some plastic cases to protect my NES, SNES, N64 and Genesis/Megadrive games. As you know, protecting games on the long run - my goal is to keep them working for at least 50 years - demands that you control the amount of light, air, dust and humidity.

So here is my question: is there some kind of pouch with a specific powder I could use to put it in the plastic case with the game, just like when you buy new shoes?

I was wondering if an empty tea bag filled with sodium bicarbonate could actually help absorbing the humidity and better protect the games from it.

Also, if it works theorically, do you think it would really make a difference? Can you think of a better way?

EDIT: Edited by Aspro - title.

It's portable and doesn't have region codes. I wanted a system I could enjoy in different locations around the world over a long period of time.

But between the PSP and the DS, I went for the DS for the games and the price.
