The great video game crash of NOW!!!

I love collecting as much as everyone on this site,  but a trend is happening that is scary.

          As each new generation of gamer's is born a previous generation of games are forgotten.  I was born in 1987 and I owned a Atari and a Nintendo when I was a kid but I am most familur with the Super Nintendo til what is out currently.  When I collect I really enjoy picking up new titles for snes and N64 and what not.  I do still pick up games for my atari and Nintendo but it is never a top priority.  I have been using the price chart http://videogames.pricecharting.com to keep track of value on games and stuff and I have noticed a trend of Atari games being pretty much worthless now Nintendo games slowly dropping and super Nintendo is on top right now.

          I feel as each new generation of collectors come out there main priority is going to be there childhood,  whether it was PS1 or PS2, each of the previous consoles will slowly fall in value and there will be the other breed of collectors that will be able to pick from the rubble.  Super Nintendo games are at a all time high right now as far as I know and it completely makes sense, all of the generation from late 80's early 90's that really grew up on that system are old enough to have jobs and have the cash flow to do so.  Give it another 10 years alot of those gamers will be moving on due to marriage or trying to buy a house or whatever the case,  the generation that played those games will slowly move on and the next generation wont care as much because it was not there child hood.

How do you guys feel on this Topic?  Am I dead wrong or am I on to something.
