Went to my local goodwill for the first time due to looking at this thread to find that they dont have any video games there.

As with all thrift stores, it is hit or miss. At my goodwill, there will be nothing for a month, then all of a sudden 50+ games (all of which overpriced junk, but it is something)

You just need to check once in a while. You can't expect find the motherload by checking once. Haha. You might find a game or two next time. Maybe moar. It's just persistence that matters.

Most Goodwills and Thrifts aren't usually like the ones the others attend to. Reasonable pricing and all.

Too be fair, the SNES sound like somebody dumped gravel into it; lots of rattling going on in there. It powers on, but I haven't bothered hooking it up to the TV to test it yet.

Part of me would want to open it to clean it out, but I swear I remember seeing pictures of someone opening an old game console to clean out rattling noises and finding a ton of bug carapaces inside.

I'll pop it open once (if) I find my screwdriver bit. With my luck, it will be loaded with dead roaches or something.

I got an Atari Jaguar at a yard sale once that was 100% submerged in water in a rubbermaid container. I just opened it up and cleaned it and let it dry out and it was full of dead roaches *barf*

You fool!
That's the only way to contain the Jaguar beast!
By removing it from the purifying water and cleaning out the guardian roaches, you've doomed us all!

Several days ago, I went to a thrift store in College Park (I think it's the ONLY thrift store in CP), and they sell video games (mostly just consoles - PS2s, Xboxes, GameCubes, Dreamcasts, plus controllers for N64, Genesis, Dreamcast, PS2, and Xbox). I managed to snag a working Game Boy Pocket for $7 (and it even had the battery cover)! Granted, the directional pad is shifting around in its socket, but hey, it still works!

I got these for $2 each at Goodwill. Their prices have been so random lately, so I was happy to see these at a decent price.

Hit Savers this morning and found a copy of the Neverhood for PC. 1.99. I was happy with that, game has some value, easy flip. I only know that because I passed on a big box version for 1.00 earlier this year and later looked it up...

Every copy of that I have ever had has sold for $35 or more within days of listing - and those were all disc only. I'd love to find a complete in box version of the game.

Me too. Although I likely wouldn't buy PC games even if I saw rarer ones, since I don't do eBay at all and that seems to be where you have to sell them.:-#

I remember when Wing Commander Kilrathi Saga used to go for $200+ even if it was discs only due to its rarity. Now I would be lucky to get $40-80 for a complete copy on eBay going by the completed listings of ones that have sold lately.

New sig coming soon.

I sold a copy disks in the case for $70 last year. The price was going down at that point - it looks like it's going up a little now.

PC games are back in vogue right now. Plus a lot of the kids who grew up with CD-Rom PC games are now old enough to be nostalgic for those titles. There is a TON of valuable PC stuff out there and pretty much everyone thinks it is worthless. It is well worth the time to research the platform.
