Crazy Money! Unopened Video Game Sells For $$$

It’s Crazy Money Day!

Do you have any old, unopened video games laying around? When you hear this, you’ll wish you had! Heritage Auctions in Dallas recently sold an unopened copy of Nintendo’s “The Legend of Zelda”. It was created in a limited production run in late 1987. The auction price? $870,000! With a price like that, it’s worth checking to see if you have any old, unopened games packed away. Gaming saw massive growth during the pandemic. It became a social lifeline during lockdowns. The gaming industry generated $162 billion in 2020 with video game profits. It’s expected to reach $180 billion this year, thanks to smartphones. The interesting thing is that gaming with others reinforces that we were made for community.

People suffered greatly during the initial lockdowns. Quarantining was – and remains – difficult. Isolation draws us away from others and soon the world revolves around us. Healthy community provides encouragement when we’re down. It’s a place to celebrate and rejoice, or grieve and be comforted. The church is one place to serve and be served. Your job or workplace, schools and neighborhood are other places to find community. Limit your game playing and prioritize being with people. The more you do it, the more comfortable you’ll become. It’s your opportunity to be salt and light to a needy world. Just remember us if you auction away any old games!
