The Nintendo Switch is a relatively young console, reaching the tender age of four years old, as of March 2017. In comparison, the PS4 and Xbox One are roughly seven years old - released back in early 2014 and late 2013 respectively.

So it may come as a bit of a surprise to some that even though the Switch is three years younger than the other consoles released in its generation, there are still several titles released on the system that have exponentially increased in value regardless of their limited time on the market.

Now, this can be put down to a lot of factors, from collectible, limited-run style games gaining a lot of traction very quickly, to the fact that Nintendo is well known for their plethora of first-party titles you can't get anywhere else - as opposed to a lot of PS4 and Xbox One games that eventually see releases on PC.

Some of the titles featured in this list are still young enough to be in nappies, yet they're still surfacing on sites for upwards of $400. One of these games is also being sold for upwards of $1,500, with no sign of decreasing in price any time soon.

If you're into game collecting, don't sleep on the Switch just because it's young! Now more than ever it seems like getting in on the ground floor is the only way you're going to be able to afford these titles without paying upwards of three figures.

10. Beamdog Ultimate Enhanced Edition Collector's Pack

The "Beamdog Ultimate Enhanced Edition Collector's Pack" has the very unusual honour of being the only game on this list that, should you want to, can still be purchased brand new.

The "Beamdog Pack" is a bundle of several classic games, including Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, Neverwinter Nights, and Planetscape Torment, all collected together alongside some extra bonus stuff. Depending on where you buy it, the pack could be yours for roughly $200.

There's also a PS4 version of the bundle that's $100 cheaper but comes with far fewer extra goodies. The weird thing is, even though you can still grab this bundle from some sites like Amazon and Game, there are still listings for it selling on eBay for upwards of $400.

Why exactly is anyone's guess, but it could be due to recent restocks or possibly just because some poor soul didn't realise they could have bought it for $200 cheaper elsewhere. Once copies of the bundle do run out though, it's more than likely to see a huge price increase.

Watch this space.
