Picked this up for around $27:

Final Fantasy X
Shadow Hearts
Dark Cloud
Mario Party 5
Lords Royal Collection
Mario Party 64

I had passed a few times on Lords; I didn't realize it was a rare/valuable game. It sucks that as soon as I buy Mario Party for N64 on ebay I find two copies on the cheap in a week.

They just marked them down 50% because they sat there forever.

I was discussing Conker with people yesterday and someone said that Goodwill only sells games online now? Is this true? There's actually one near me but it's the only thrift/pawn shop for miles.

@pixi Yeah, goodwill has their own auction site for a couple of years now where they place their rare items on. There are tons of collectors on that auction site so trying to get some rare stuff at a cheap price is nearly impossible.

That is sometimes true. The two Goodwills in my area do sell their videogames. Others will sell their stuff online too.

Entirely depends on the store. Luckily the one here isn't part of "Shopgoodwill" yet.

Had a decent pickup, should've passed on some of these.

$5 each (all GH unless noted)
Parasite Eve
Xenogears
Final Fantasy 9
Legend of Dragoon
Final Fantasy Anthology
Final Fantasy 8 (black label)
Wild Arms (black label)

$7 each
Disgaea
Disgaea 2
SMT Digital Devil Saga 2
SMT Nocturne
Fallout Brotherhood of Steel
Shadow Hearts Covenant
Mario Party 2
Mario Party 4

Unfortunately, none of the rpgs have manuals and some of the cover art is ruined on the PS2 ones. Plus with the PS1 games being mostly GH versions, I'm not really sure I did too well on this pickup. Most of this is going into my collection; maybe I can pick up some case/manuals on the cheap for the PS2 games.

I'd say you did pretty well. All of those sell for at least 2 - 3 times what you paid.

Personally wouldn't pay $20 for one, but congrats on your deal (I think)

And this just adds so much more to the conversation, eh?

I had no idea what the price of a used iPad 2 would be since the 3 came out, figured it would be less than $200, which is about 40% of what the msrp of the ipad 2 since it is now "outdated", also I do not find value in a tablet pc.

tl;dr Don't like me? I don't care ignore me and move on. Its cheap ass gamer not bitch ass gamer

This thread incited my interest to go to the local pawn shop and see what I could pick up (they have a slew of games).

I know the owner REAL well, and knew I could get a great deal there.

Anyways I got

:ps3: Uncharted 2 (no case)
:ps3: Lego Pirates of the Caribbean
:ps3: Lego Indiana Jones

:psp: Ratchet and Clank PSP
:gba: Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories

I gave 20 bucks for all this. Not too great, but not too bad either, especially if Uncharted works. I haven't tested it, but both Lego games work.

I asked him how much and he said how does 25 sound? I told him I would give him 20 and he said sure thing. I'm a little disgruntled as I think I could have got another gba game out of him.
Of course, not all sales are final there. They will take a game back if it doesn't work.

They're good people over there, and it's a legit pawn shop.
