What is money if not stupidity persevering? That doesn't even make sense dude, what? Well, neither does anything you're about to read.  

By now you might have heard, an sealed, highly graded copy of Super Mario 64 has sold at auction for a record-breaking $1,560,000. Yes, that's a real number that someone paid for a real game because they're either really smart or really, really stupid. 

You might be thinking, wow people suck, what losers, and your right, they are and they do, but we can't ignore these rich nerds any longer. The previous record for the most valuable video game ever sold was hosted by the same auction house, Heritage Auctions, where a rare copy of Super Mario Bros. sold for $660,000, breaking the previous record of $114,000. 

And since this news broke over the weekend, someone coughed up a measly $600 for a copy of Skyrim. Yeah, a game that you can buy on sale or get for free through GamePass. 

So what does this mean?

How the hell are we supposed to know? We're idiots and these people buying up old and now new video games are like aliens to us. Rich, culture-obsessed aliens. Last month when someone bought an Among Us shaped chicken nugget for 100k we thought we'd seen it all. But now we're patiently waiting for our investment into old DDR mats to payout. Fingers crossed.
