As long as we're listing pet peeves:

Why do people have to tell me it's rare? Example FS: FFVII $150 RARE!!!!!

Do people think adding the word "rare" to things actually make it rare?

It's like telling someone your famous. If you're really famous I'd know who you are.


Because rare is one of the more popular search keywords on Craigslist and eBay.

I also have around 50 backup games all in seperate blank disks almost all the best dream cast games like power stone 2, Shenmue,mr driller,marvel vs. capcom, a lot more & they work


Report her for selling burned games, tell her in 10 years when she gets out of prison she can see if those games are still worth money or if her son graduated college or became a druggie after going to prison.

Her son will probably regret it once he gets his degree and realizes there a dime a dozen and he can't land a job in the field he majored in.

I'd keep the games and make my kid pay his way through community college, then make fun of him after for not being able to get into a university.

You know, weirdly this sort of insanity seems to work both ways where people's perception of value isn't necessarily based on anything real. Speaking from my days working retail, it seemed that people cared less about what they were actually paying and more about how much they were "saving". So if you told them a TV was $800 off they were really happy even though it was $200 cheaper on amazon. Seems like people think you should care how much they paid for it or want for it. It's like for some people prices are completely relative.

To be fair, for many people outside of the gaming circle, "Nintendo" and "video game" are interchangeable. Although it may sound incredibly stupid to us because it is our hobby, it can be a simple mistake for someone who hears mention of Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo GameBoy, Nintendo DS, etc. throughout the years.

Yes, true, but that doesn't explain the $442 price tag.

Honestly, I didn't even notice that. I tend to not look at prices in Craigslist ads because it seems like, more often than not, people just slap on arbitrary numbers and hope that someone will call for more info. If the person actually wants $442, then yeah, that's a bit nutty. You could chalk it up to being another aspect of being completely ignorant to the gaming scene, but even so, that's a lot of money for any old electronic.
