fire emblem hype effect. It will take a year or two after release but the price will go back to the typical 40-70 range with time. Ignoring the very rare nice prices that occasionally pop up on here and ebay. Still jelly that people managed to get sub 20 copies right after I managed to find mine for 45. then I found radiant dawn a little later for around the same price. Of course I was price checking those and stalking the pages like crazy.
I've had them all since release, though my Path of Radiance manual's gone missing somewhere down the line (I think an ex took it) and I doubt I'll ever find another one. Doesn't bother me too much, but it'd be nice to have a complete copy since it's my favorite game in the series and I'm a bit of a collector. It'd also be nice to have one of the non-first print Radiant Dawns since the original prints have a problem where the game will freeze up if you try to run it with an easy Path of Radiance file on your memory card, but at these prices, I'll live.
