And don't tell me Gamestop!

I've been cleaning out the house and uncovered all my old games. It's mostly NES, N64, and PS2 stuff. None of it is super rare/valuable but there's enough of it that (according to pricecharting, at least) it adds up to real money. Has anyone had any success selling this kind of thing online? I could go through and list it all on Ebay but that sounds an awful lot like work. I do have systems to test all the games, so assuming I don't get distracted and just play them all, I can at least confirm that they work.

I know there are a few of you on here that collect this stuff so I'm also happy to send a list of what I have and see if anything is interesting as well.

Any other brilliant ideas?

I don't do this a whole lot, but Amazon has, exactly once, offered me a very good, almost 100% of retail trade-in. It's a whole thing to find an item on there to trade.

Otherwise, eBay has been my go-to.

So, all of the kids that grew up with the original NES and Genesis are old enough to A) have kids of their own, B) be nostalgic, and C) have disposable income (mostly)

Due to A, B, and C used game stores that specialize in retro gaming have popped up all over the place.  This is my local favorite: https://www.retrovideogamestore.com/

I suggest you find two or three of those in your area and see what their offers are for whatever you're willing to sell.

Facebook and ebay are it for the most part.

Do you have a list of games?

This is me, except I want to get rid of all the stuff that's cluttering my house. Good call on the game store, it looks like there are a few around.

Here's a list. "Values" listed are obviously not 100% accurate and not necessarily what I would expect to get.
