If you guys go on eBay and put as title lot of 17 games and under the sold listings 17 games went for 1009.00 all because buster Douglas boxing is in there.
And I thought prices were going to go down in price

It just wasn't pushed to its limits back in the day. Here are some more recent homebrew examples that do that, though not in a game environment:

Been a while since I've done anything with my master system. Had to sell off a couple great games for money for the house while I look for a job. I wanted to sell off my collection but no one was buying on ebay so with the help from a few friends from here actually they suggested that I don't do anything but keep it and box it till my life is back on track.

So I'm going to still collect for the us library but it wont be this year I get the set maybe 2018. As far as the games I've sold ill get them back, and in the meantime ill get my room organized again and place the master system up and I'm good to go.

I've been getting the urge to play some Master System again lately. I'm thinking Alex Kid or a replay of Phantasy Star, maybe.

I never did beat the 1st Phantasy Star.
Might have to resume my play on the GBA collection sometime (have no idea where I left off, but have a walkthrough (official mail in print out I think) for such an occasion, as I doubt I'll have patience for it otherwise.

Alex Kidd pisses me off due to janken. Great way to ruin an otherwise competent platformer. Also, exciting boss battles are usually a highlight of the genre for me.

Here's a tip for Alex Kidd:

If you go rock, then scissors on the first boss, you're guaranteed to win as long as you haven't fought him before.

In the level where you fight the second janken boss, you can find an item that lets you read their throughts and changes it into a game of reacting to their changes instead of pure guesswork. It looks like a blue orb with a red star on it. The first boss is the ONLY time you need to play janken legitimately, and as mentioned above, the way it's coded means there's always a correct answer to his opening moves.

Alex Kidd also has about 8 boss fights where you have to fight the enemy legitimately, not just at Janken. They aren't especially great, but it's not ALL rock paper scissors.
