Alright gamers, it's time to hit up your garage, attic, or storage building and check your stash of old, obsolete video games. Some of those games are worth big bucks. When I was a kid, I had an Atari and a hoard of games for the thing. I typically only played a few of them and over the years, I have thrown them all away.

If you still have your Atari 2600 stash, you could be sitting on enough loot for a new car. A gamer in Austin, Texas named Tanner Sandlin read a story on CNN about rare video games and realized that he owned one of the games in the story called Air Raid for the Atari 2600.

He tossed the game on eBay and the thing sold for a whopping $31,600. The reason that the game bought so much money was that it was only the 13 known copy of the game and the first complete copy that had the original packaging.
