I didn't see this posted so I figured why not. Anyway, both of my local Family Video stores are selling off everything that isn't current gen (aside from ps2 games less than 2 months old) with prices from $4.95 -$9.95.

I'm sure you guys know whats worth what but I found:

$4.95

GCN


Pikmin
Pikmin 2
Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes


PS2

Silent Hill 2-Origins

$9.95

Multi

Futurama


:EDIT:

Make sure to ask them about the instruction booklets for you games. For some reason my stores have all the booklets separate in a huge drawer.

Sigh. There's 8 or 9 Family Videos in my state but they are all in mountain cities that are about 3-4 hours away. Won't be worth it for me to head out to any of them.

Damn.. I just picked up Pikmin 2 for $7.99 last Saturday. Oh well, still a deal and I'm not sure it would have lasted another week. I didn't see anything but last gen games on sale when I went there.

Wow, now i'm really upset i have no FV near me. If anyone could get me one of those complete MGS:TS, i'd be forever in your debt :D.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

It doesn't sound like Family Video knows what's worth what;)

Change is fucking good - but folding money is better.

Haha that's what I was thinking. To reinforce your joke i have to tell you that they were selling dino crisis 3, brute force, and grabbed by the ghoulies for 9.95.

mine was hit and miss

most of the gamecube games were on sale but not all. all of the xbox games were on sale, but none of the ps2 games were on sale.

I got
SSX3 (GC) 4.95
Wario Ware INC (GC) 4.95
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time (GC) 4.95


though none of them had instructions (I asked for them and they couldn't find them)


I did see a jedi outcast dark knight 2 (GC) for sale (that game is pretty hard to find) but it was rented out.......Ill have to go back every once in a while and wait for it to come in.

Hit up a FV and got Star Wars Jedi Knight 2 for the GC for $9.99. No instructions, stickers all over. Kinda regret getting it and no good Xbox or PS2 games were on sale, but there wasn't much there I would want anyway.

I don't think there was any special sale going on. In other words, this is YMMV.

Indeed :)

I always wanted the Xbox version of Futurama, but the local Family Video never carried it.

And they got rid of most of their last-gen games a while ago. There's still some crappy Xbox games in there...but not many.

Found a nice little score of GC games that I got to keep.

$9.95
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones

$4.95
Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
Geist

No manuals but the disks and cases are in mint condition so I'm happy.

Waste of time. PS2 games wernt for sale, most of the best GC/Xbox games like Halo and Mario Kart wernt for sale at all and the stuff that was for sale was $10 90% of the time if it was even halfway decent.
