This is pathetic to me. What do you guys think?

http://skagit.craigs...2887387953.html

"Is anyone out there willing to donate any games for the xbox 360? Me and my girls got one for christmas, and we only have one game (Soul Caliber V) and one controller. I am still out of work, although I am looking every day. So we were wondering if anyone had any non-sports games that they no longer had much use for, that they wouldn't mind donating to a great family. We aren't big on sports games here, although racing games, anything from Bethesda Software, and Rockstar are always popular here. Beyond that, let me know what you have, and we can go from there. I hate being in this position, but this stupid xbox is the only thing we have, beyond this old PC.

No, we are not looking to buy games, as we have no money, which is why we are hoping there is a generous soul or two out there, who might be willing to donate games. And no, we are not selling any games, either...


Thank you for taking the time to read this, and have a great day!"


I don't have a problem with someone asking either, if it were genuine. Of course it's difficult to tell in most ads.

Here though, it's interesting that he mentions that games from Rockstar and Bethesda are popular in his household. How old are these girls? If they are kids, then it sounds like he is trying to get games for himself. Also, beggars can't be choosers.

Exactly.. I don't like that he/she requests non-sports games and games from certain developers. And they already have Soul Calibur V, which is a perfectly fine game to play. But whaeva, maybe someone out there gave them some free games by now.

Lol howgh embarrassing to beg in craigslist. If your out of work, the last thing you need are video games loser.

I came upon this the other day, made me laugh.

Do you live in a studio somewhere in Pilsen? Do you like to use vintage shit that people got rid of for a reason? Are you looking for that new "look-how-fucking-retro-I-am" certerpiece for your next party that will be a huge hit then promptly occupy your closet until your next move because everyone realized that their iPhones are 10x more fun anyway?

Then buy my TELE-GAMES video arcade system! It's totally solid! What's that? You've never heard of Tele-games?!? Of course you haven't! It's Sears' low-rent version of the Atari gaming console that parents gave to kids to make them feel poorer than their friends. Think of it like Tele-Games : Jesse Eisenberg as Atari : Michael Cera. Both are exactly alike, 100% interchangeable and awkward as shit but one costs a lot more than the other. Regardless, this sucker was all the rage back in '77 when it came out. It was as new as women's rights only a lot more fun and useful! Check out all this cool stuff it comes with:

-Tele-Games gaming console
-2 controllers
-24 games including:

-Pitfall
-Space Invaders
-Asteroids
-Donkey Kong
-Pac Man
-Star Wars (Empire Strikes Back, not that Revenge of the Sith shit)
-E.T.
-Spiderman
-Laser Blast
-Defender
-Star Radiers
-Dragonfire
-Starmaster
-Football
-Missile Command
-Night Driver
-Skiing
-Dodge 'Em
-Dragster
-London Blitz
-Riddle of the Sphinx
-Brainstorming
-Multi-player game combo

and my personal favorite....

-JOURNEY ESCAPE

As in the band Journey made a motherfucking video game. That's right. Don't Stop Believing in all it's 8 bit glory.

This whole system was totally tubular back in its day. It's got features like individual skill level selection, a reset button (you'll need that one) and even works on both black & white AND color TVs!!!! You read that right - COLOR TVs, folks.

I mean, by today's standards the graphics are roughly equivalent to playing an original Playstation with cataracts but hey, if you like old hipster shit like this you can't pass this one up. One catch is that it is missing the power adapter (I think i used it to try and hang myself when I realized I was still playing an Atari) but I did the homework for you and can include a link on where you can get one for cheap so you don't have to waste any more company time looking for one and can get back to doing something useful (like trolling Craigslist for new jobs while your're still on the clock.)

So be the coolest, most ironic kid on your block and buy this sucker. I'm tired of looking at it. Make me an offer so we can haggle and then you can stand me up!

I dunno, I think it's a relatively normal item. There are plenty of legitimate reasons for owning one, whether you are a professional dancer, a club owner, a party planner, someone who rents it out to said people, etc. There are also tons of women who take pole-dancing classes for exercise, although they usually get fairly basic poles. I think the only outstanding thing about this is that it costs so much money. If you take a look around Google, you can easily find brand new setups that look much nicer than this going for $500 or less. My guess is that they're either lying about how much they paid or this pole is as old as it looks and it was bought when these weren't so common.

Yes I know about this Biodiesel option. Although it isn't as viable as you say.

One, you need to have a diesel vehicle, which I don't. (Though I don't know the statistics of diesel vs. gasoline vehicle owners) Then you have the issue of converting your diesel engine to run on biodiesel. Then you have to find a steady supply of the biodiesel. (From my understanding, unless you own a restaurant or can get a restaurant to give or sell it to you, it would rule that out)



OT but can't cars run a few miles on Grain alcohol?

Let me preface this one by telling you that the original ad ONLY had the picture of the N64 Console and mention of the 70 games. I emailed him back and said for $675, at least email me a listing of the games because a lot of time with these ads you get there and find out most of the games are sports games. Well, this is what I got before he changed the ad.

He has way too many crap quality titles in there, and has hardly any rare or even uncommon games. Not even a Conker's? Sheesh, for owning 70 games you'd think he would have a decent selection! At least he had mario and donkey kong games.

The "Wanted" section is also a pretty sad part of CL to look at. Nothing but people begging for free stuff (which is fine if it were essential things like food and clothing but it's games, and other hobby items), people offering to pay half of what things are worth new or used, or scams.
