Atari, NES , SNES , Genesis , N64 , PS1, XBOX, PS2 , XBOX 360.
My favortite console is actually XBOX with SNES in second, too young for atari we had it till it got stolen, not long.
I still got the box for Doom that I bought for the SNES.

PC(since I was 3)->PS2->Every current gen other than Vita (so far)

Though my friends had NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Gear. Only two friends bought an N64, so I played that like twice until I bought a few from yard sales. One had a Virtual Boy, but I only played that like once.

Atari>NES>SNES>GameGear>Saturn>PS1>N64>Dreamcast>PS2>PS3


I did go back and pick up a Sega Genesis in between the Dreamcast and PS2.

yep, and its sad, to a point.

How so?

Even with lackluster graphics, the N64 has some excellent games in its library. Hell, the standard it set for Wrestling games still hasn't been topped to this day. Remakes are all well and good, but you can't top the original game on the original system.

It is about $30-$40 cart only.


Of course it is. And I sold it to a local game store for $5. Oh well, I guess I didn't have to hassle with ebay? Anyway, I still can't complain, because the lot I bought that in had one other game that I promise I will take pictures of tomorrow which totally makes up for it.

Favorite systems..
Xbox 360 > DS Lite > PS1 > N64

First system I had as a kid was PS1, we spent a LOT LOT on video games. At one point we had I think 100 games. All the fun kid ones, along with the good RPG's.
N64 I liked, but didn't actually get too many games for it for whatever reason. Smash bros was a lot of fun.
Got myself a DS lite 2 years ago and an Acekard.. yay free games?
Xbox 360 I got about 15 months ago, and thanks to CAG and SD I know how to get cheap games for it, along with free MSP for download games. Ive probably gotten at least 30k MSP all free

I just sold that Die Hard game with the manual for $100( came with a NES bundle for $15 )......... holy f***

I did play it for a few hours before I sold it. It found it VERY hard but it's a really cool game. Much more different than many games back then.

Interesting sequence there, I haven't seen too many people jumping from Playstation to Nintendo and then back to Playstation.

For me it was more like NES -> SNES / Gameboy -> PS1 / Dreamcast -> PS2 / PC. Only recently have I been able to backfill with gamecube, gba, and ds.

I'll never forget renting Dragon Warrior games for the NES though, back when there was such a thing as independent video stores...

Let's see...

Started with Atari, then Nintendo, SNES/Genesis, PS1, PS2, Wii, 360. And that's before getting in the resale business.

Had a Game Boy grey, too, but that was it for handhelds.

I take from this that everyone else is having about as bad of luck as I've been having? Boy, this heat sucks.

Yeah, I guess I just didn't care about the brand or sticking with 1 brand when I was younger. I just picked whatever system I thought was coolest for each gen.

I like Ninja Turtles, too. In fact, it got my summer off to a good start when I found TMNT II for the NES at a yard sale for a buck.

And we're back.

So far it's looking like a fail on the yard sale front. I do have the chance to go look on Friday this week, so hope to find something.

Sorry if it feels like im rubbing it in your nose's guys, just was really excited lol.

So heres the lot, I got everything here for $21, except dungeon master and golden eye which I got $2 each at separate sales.

Spoiler


So all snes games are complete except for the asciipad with no manual. Went to an individual sale that advertised video games, was there 30 min early.
Didn't see them out so asked, they brough out a big tub full of these games, 2 CiB original gameboys with box / manuals, and a dreamcast with 2 controllers, no hookups. They wanted 15 for each gameboy, so didn't get them. Dreamcast I didn't want incomplete.
Offered $15 initially for the game lot and they accepted, but then another family member jumped in and said at least $1 each for $21 so I happily accepted that offer.

Edit: With the value of these games, and two weeks in a row of finding good snes games. I need to buy myself a console to test these games out. I've never seen a snes in the wild, what is my best bet? One of those FC twin turbo systems?


I've had this posted on Craigslist for awhile in a large SNES bundle. Everything in the pics except for the gameboy, n64 stuff.

Mostly resellers offering me $100 and laughing at me when I tell them I know they are worth a lot more than that. But got an offer today that I accepted.

A collector offered $200, I figured if hes the type of person to spend $200 on some boxed games, he would probably be a yardsailer and have a spare SNES lying around. Sure enough he had one, with all hookups and 2 controllers.

So $200 + the snes for those games. I am happy with that.. do you think I did alright?

^ I don't know how you were able to squeeze out $200 and SNES out of that.

Eh, the Mario RPG cart and Turtles in Time alone are worth ~$100. There's over $200 value there for sure but he did luck out getting full value in a lot rather than having to get rid of each thing individually.

Yeah, 40 for mario RPG, 50 for turtles in time. 35 game genie, 25 mario kart, 25 donkey kong country, 40 asciipad. Thats 215 right there not counting the other games. I don't think he is getting a bad deal at all personally.
