Yeah, I work at a game store but the highest we offer for classic games is 5 bucks, and we let people know that. Some don't want to go through the hassle of selling it on the internet or finding a collector, so they sell it to us.
But, from the games you mentioned, I can tell you that we would only sell Final Fantasy VIII and IX for $7.99 and offer anywhere from $2.50 to $3.00 each. Chrono Cross would get you about $3.00 too. Around $5.00 for Legend of Dragoon depending on where it's selling at on the internet (actually, that game fluctuates quite a bit in value. Some days it sells easy at $40, some days you can't even move it for $15).
The only real catch of the bunch is Grandia. That's an Ebay item... the rest, meh in terms of value. But, if you were to come into my store, I can tell you we'd give $19.00 straight cash or $26.60 store credit... but we'd probably recommend you sell Grandia on the internet cause we're nice like that.
It's funny, cause we let people know when they have gold they're unknowingly trading into us, but they tend to do it anyway just because they don't want to deal with the hassle of selling on Ebay or Amazon or they just want the cash now.
you know it wasn't entirely just what they were offering for them, but its the fact I can turn around and see them selling FF7 for $60 and FF8 for like $40, and they look me in the eye and offer $14 in store credit for all of them. I wouldn't be mad if they were not gonna make 1000+% profit from it lol. I usually just walk away saying "ok, not worth it," but the amount they sell them back to customers for made me angry
