The weekly car baggage clearance is a great place to find a bargain, whether it’s used furniture, cheap electronics, or used power tools. It goes without saying, but there is usually someone getting rid of their old DVDs and video games. Most older video games aren’t worth much, but with a growing number of people looking for full retro collections, you’ll be surprised how many are selling more now than when they were originally released. If you’re visiting a car trunk this weekend, some of the following Sega, Nintendo, and PlayStation games are worth checking out.

First, let’s take a look at some PS2 games you might realistically find when visiting the trunk of a car.

The action game God Hand is a cult favorite with fighting game fans, to the point where prices have started to rise.

According to Price chart website, used copies of God Hand in its original box and with an instruction manual are on sale for £ 48 to £ 93.

Another game you may realistically come across is Manhunt 2, which costs up to £ 86 if in good condition and with instructions.

Elsewhere, the Silent Hill Collection (which I owned but ended up selling for nothing close to this amount) can reach prices as low as £ 107.

PSOne games worth looking for include Klonoa Door to Phantomile, Suikoden, Suikoden 2, Clock Tower, and Castlevania Symphony of the Night.

The only annoying thing about PSOne games is that they tend to be in poor condition, which lowers the selling price.

The same goes for the old Super Nintendo, NES and N64 games, which were packed in non-sturdy cardboard boxes.

Even so, Nintendo cartridges are still worth a pretty penny, as long as they’re rare enough. The following game prices are based on loose copies of the games, so assume the boxed versions are worth a lot more.

On the NES, car luggage money hunters should pay attention to Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse (£ 74), Mega Man (£ 60), Lethal Weapon (£ 117) and Mighty Final Fight (£ 186).

As for the Super Nintendo, Aero the Acro-Bat 2 retails for £ 117, Spawn for £ 106, Adventures of Batman & Robin for £ 87, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 4: Turtles in Time is priced at £ 74.

If you find N64 games, titles like Starcraft 64, Rush 2049, Paper Mario and Conker’s Bad Fur Day have all sold for over £ 100.

The Sega Mega Drive was an extremely popular console in the 1990s, so the chances of spotting some Sega classics are high.

Unlike Nintendo games, the Sega Mega Drive versions came in sturdy boxes with instruction manuals, so the following prices are based on looking for copies with boxes and manuals.

Here is Jr, for example, is worth a staggering £ 490 if you find a copy in its original box and with a manual.

Similarly, a complete copy of The Punisher is known to have fetched £ 468. Even a bulk version can sell for over £ 200.

Elsewhere, Probotector sells for £ 198, Phantasy Star IV for £ 180, while the popular action game Gunstar Heroes can sell for up to £ 144.

Of course it goes without saying, but these prices should only be used as a guide and you won’t necessarily have to make the full amount indicated.

Sites like eBay rely on visibility and charge commissions for each sale, while CEX will buy games for a lower price, but sell them closer to the prices listed above.

It might be worth adding to bookmarks Price charts website before your visit to the trunk of the car.

Finally, you can pretty much ignore the old copies of FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer (especially from the PS2 era), because they really aren’t worth much.
