Nothing, if you can cope with the notion that you will probably never have enough time to play the entirety of the library, enjoy them, and complete most to a satisfactory level in your lifetime whilst still enjoying a meaningful life outside of video games.

Ordered a translated Famicom game from him. Works great and he sent the original Japanese ROM with it! +1

The most I ever spent on one game was $500 for an Asteroids Deluxe machine. ($520 if you count all the new bulbs and a ballast.)  I don't remember where the money came from; I just had a chunk o' change burning a hole in my pocket and happened to find an arcade cabinet in a junk shop.

On a more Famicom-related note, my second place game purchase goes to a CIB copy of Summer Carnival '92 I picked up back in '08 for $475. According to eBay, I haven't seen much of a return on that investment, which is kind of surprising.

I will never spend anywhere near that much on a cartridge ever again. I just couldn't bring myself to do that these days considering how common counterfeits have become, and how good they can be. There was a time when you could buy a copy of Surprise at Dinosaur Peak on eBay and be fairly certain it was real, but that time is long over. The whole retro game market has gotten way too crazy for me. I'm going to stick to $10 Famicom cassettes from now on.  Tongue

Even though this might not count, but the most I spent on a gaming related items was a Famicom Data Recorder for about US$70. As for software, never spent more than a $40 DS/3DS games. I don't think I would ever spend more than $100, except for just one game....Konami's DoReMiKo with keyboard.

I think mine would be 300 ($500 before the Brexit gutted the exchange rate).  Which is a lot for me.
 
I bought a Super Street Fighter II X arcade board from a friend, but that also came bundled with some other games.
 
Totally worth it!  In fact it was a birthday present of sorts from my wife.  Oh, I also bought a brand new Game & Watch for 300 ~ish.
 
I would definitely like a CIB minty Gimmick! one day, but it's getting a bit hard to justify now, price wise.  I guess they don't depreciate though...
