I'm not sure how anyone is getting $1-2 games. I stopped at a store where I know the manager for electronics. Nearly all games mentioned here recently rang up at correct prices, generally $20 or above... Brink, Lost Planet 2, and others. Kmarts drops aren't ymmv so I'm a bit confused.
Well enough people have reported this, something is going on. So maybe games can be open to YMMV now (even though it normally isn't). Maybe it means something as far as these stores electronics departments or possibly even pre-cursor to announcing closings? Who knows.
I know I never have any luck at KMART, it's always "as marked", and completely ridiculous price for ancient games (i.e. $20 or $30 for games that aren't worth $5). Used to have all kinds of crazy finds like this at Sears though. Hopefully I will start having some luck at KMART for some of these $1 and $2 games.
Goodness knows they need to clearance them out. I notice relatively recently alot of games just magically disappeared from the shelves. Obviously so they could re-organize everything (went from major disaster, to semi-organized disaster). I don't go to KMART that often, but unless they had a dump bin of $1 games there's literally NO WAY they cleared all their old inventory between visits (only other option was if they shipped them away to a warehouse or "struck a deal" with a bulk buyer like Big Lots).
