The most interesting games I ever saw there were Pokemon Mini Handheld systems for $5 and extra game cartridges for $4. That was probably around 12 years ago. I had never seen the system or games for sale in any non online store before and it was a fun impulse buy.

I've heard Extinction was pretty terrible. I was interested because it seemed like a fun premise, but I couldn't find one positive opinion on it.

I mean... it's $5 fun.  The best review of it I saw was "I keep hearing this compared to Attack on Titan, so I tried that instead, and it is much better".

 

It's certainly not a challenging game, but it is a bit fun to hack off a giant ogre's leg so you can reach it's head.

those games are great for wounded warriors sitting in hospitals doing nothing but playing old games.  We bought a bunch for the soldiers and they were thrilled.

Sure, but Destiny 2 is free to play now. There is no offline component so all those discs do is save on some bandwidth.

A bizarre sight at Five Below for me yesterday. They had Darksiders 2 for the Xbox 360, but it was $5.55. It appears that quite a few things in the store were now priced at $5.55. This is the first time i have ever seen anything priced above $5 there.

That's unusual? About half the stuff at my store is $5.55.

They've been adding a section for items going up to $10.  All of the stores in my city have it now, with things like phone chargers and headsets around the $7 mark.  Games are mostly 7 or 10.

They had Pokemon Minis at Five below or was it something else similar? They are pretty expensive now.

It was the handheld system with Pokemon Party Mini included.
