If you like to make money and you've got old games sitting in your closet, and who doesn't, you'll want to dust them off. Those old video games you played in the 1980s could be worth a small fortune.

If you've got rare games like "Ice Climber,"the original factory-test version is selling for $2,561. Or, in its original box, it's going for $119.

The best part is, your retro games don't have to be rare to be valuable. More recent titles like "Pokemon" or "Crash Bandicoot" could get you more than $100 from collectors. A 1991 "Street Fighter," for example, could get you $320. Believe it or not, all 18 versions of "Street Fighter" have sold 50 million copies. So, dig through your closets and attic. You may have a valuable title.

Of course, you never really knew how much your collectibles are worth until you start selling them. Fortunately, there's a fun online calculator game called MrGamez that can help.

It shows you a game, like Super Nintendo "Street Fighter" and asks you to guess how much it's worth. It'll then let you know if you're way off or if your guess was good. Either way, it'll show you how much you can sell that title for, whether it's in factory-sealed packaging, its original box, or just a loose disk or cartridge. (See photo above.)

But, more than that, it's just to play. Give MrGamez' "What Are These Classic Games Worth Now" a try.
