Imagine that we can make a paper plane out of a hundred-dollar note with very good flight characteristics. It is a game object that has parameters and functions, but it remains a hundred-dollar note at any given time. If the game item is destroyed, it will simply turn back into a hundred dollar bill. This is what we call the Intrinsic Value. Characteristics, parameters and functions of the game object and, as a consequence, its demand on the market, determine its Market Value.
