Just to play devil's advocate for once, I help a few people who buy and sell cars do Craigslist ads and we always list the price at $500-$1000 over what we're looking for just because 90% of the people who will call/text/email lead with: "Will you take (50% of what you're asking)". After a while you'll get someone who is somewhat reasonable, but they still lowball then slowly start working towards your price. If you price way over, then you can sell stuff for close to what you want because people think they're getting some amazing deal when they "talk you down" a few hundred dollars.

One time I had a work truck up for $8,000 (which was below the KBB values and more than reasonable) and a guy called and said the pictures look like the truck has some dents in the body and wanted to know if I would take $2,000 cash. I just hung up on him. If you ever start selling stuff on Craigslist, you'll quickly find out that the buyers on there are a million times worse than the idiots we laugh at in this thread.


As much as I enjoy reading this thread, I think more people are disappointed with the price of things while searching than anything else. Your going to get lucky sometimes but you can't lowball everybody. Look at the Genesis bundle, it wasn't badly overpriced. If given the effort I'm sure most of these can be brought down. I bet a lot of you are the people with the lowball offers that blindinglights was talking about.

Glad you know the intentions of every seller on Craigslist.




Most? I thought you just implied that I was wrong with your "No."




Where DID I SAY they didn't.


Seriously dude, what's with the abrasive reply.

Try to sell some big ticket items on Craigslist and then see if you still think the sellers are worse than the buyers...

"I know you want $5,000 for your boat, but I can trade you this 1980's 4-wheeler that has a seized up motor and $200 bucks for it. Are you interested?"

True story.


Don't defend the morons on Craigslist who all think they have the "NES-001". Because MOST post like they have it. I put MOST because I sell on Craigslist but post things reasonably. Most of my stuff sells because I don't post ridiculous asinine prices. I usually get people who give me my asking price.

Anyway, It does go both ways- there are plenty of low ballers and plenty of stupid sellers. I've had a lot more of the latter and am tired of reading these overpriced ads everyday.

There is a guy who posts sometimes on CL with "REALLY?"" And then he lists someone's CL post with what the value actually should be, or the fact the item could be found in a store for cheaper and new. There are so many.
I thought the Genesis bundle was overpriced.

Eh, could be worse. There's a couple comic shops around here and that's pretty much what you would spend on all that, even if it isn't the "market value", depending on your area and availibility and demand it could be "retail value", know what I mean? And besides, gotta post a little high sometimes because most people want to talk you down.

I bet that guy would let all that go for like 90 bucks, which for a person who wants to relive some childhood memories or something, that has the money to spend on an old system and games, isn't all that unreasonable.


I checked the true value on this lot and it wasn't near this price.
I listed a Sega Genesis plus more games (total was 35) on CL for less than $125, not many were sports games, all CIB. I didn't get many bites and the one guy who did offer me, posted on the sega genesis forums asking if $80 for a genesis and 35 games was worth it. They told him no, it was worth around $45. I just don't get how that bundle is worth around $100?

So much stuff is overpriced on Craigslist. Old sports games for $20 each. It gets old reading the same crap.

IMHO, I think people who post for more than they can possibly get:

1. May not really want to part with it.
2. But they will if someone is willing to pay the ridiculous price.

I don't understand how these assholes selling "backups" for xboxes and modding them continue to post multiple times a day their ads on craigslist.

I flag them EVERY day from multiple IPs (when i check craigslist at work, or on my phone, or at home) and they still show up EVERY single day.

Anyone in this thread who feels like helping out to ruin this shithead's business enterprise, please flag this ad.

No problems?! You're missing a goddamn disc drive and a fan. Maybe that's technically not a problem but this should be as is.

I think even hardcore collectors have a tendency to overprice genesis games; you can take almost any equivalent lot of NES titles and they'll be easier to sell, the CIBs will be more likely to ramp up in value, etc. I'm thinking Genesis tends to be more of a money-pit, i.e. people are less likely to drop big bills unless they can offload the titles which they don't want.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.
