Post your stories of bargain hunting for video game related stuff.

A few days ago, the goodwills in my area had a 50% off sale on everything. That day, my friend and I found 8 genesis games, and Mario RPG Legend of the Seven stars for a dollar each (was two dollars normally).

Today, I got these for 2 dollars per system at a goodwill where they price everything BY WEIGHT.

its allways so damn awesome to find stuff like this. i am very much old school and i enjoy shopping at fleamarkets and thrift stores for my classic video games. I always find new things every week at my local flea market. And whenever I go out of town i check the phone book and get a listing of that city's thrift stores.

i am always finding cheap video games at aroud a couple of bucks and sytems for a few dollars more. About a month ago I bought a Sega CDX! It came with Sonic CD and the Ram cart. And it cost me 10 bucks! try finding that system online and youll see it very much expensive. Last year I also found a good copy of Crono Trigger for the super nintendo, it cost me 8 bucks! The guy who sold it to me though he was ripping me off! He was looking at me funny thinking that I would be mad, but i wasnt! that game is so awesome, i am constantly playing it!

wow ive typed a lot. this is a topic that I enjoy! well anyways if you find a game at a good price dont hesitate to buy it. Some sellers know what they have and its up to you to decide if its worth it. but I really love the feeling of finding that special game that brings back so many memories! happy hunting!
