Nice little bundle of games, how much did they run you? DKC has to be one of the most common snes games, I swear I've had about 8 of them this month alone because everyone I buy from has 2 copies for some reason lol.

Wow, can't beat that good deal.

Good deal for you too wheels, not bad at all.

My thrifts have been pretty much crap lately, been doing a lot of craigslist deals instead.

Left a silver Gamecube with power adapter that was $9, a fat PS2 with cables and the hdd network adapter for $15, and a Genesis controller and a Gamecube controller that were marked $6 for some reason (they are usually $3). I did bite on the taped up Madcatz pack that contained "Gameboy Advance with 9 games" for $25. It had a Glacier GBA with batterys and suprisingly the battery cover, 2 original Tetris's, Super Mario Land, Super Mario Advance, San Francisco Rush 2049 GBC, Toy Story, Nigel Mansells World Championship Racing, Spongebob Squarepants SuperSponge, and Mario Kart Super Circuit. Not great, not terrible. Was hoping for any Pokemon game!

Nice Basilisk find.

DS games were empty unfortunately so I grabbed the cases for a quarter. I also brought this to the attention of the manager in hopes that he starts putting them in the glass case instead of with the dvds. Megaman Legends 2 is in perfect condition! I was so excited to find it. Also so the case for MML1 but no game.

I was really surprised to find these gameboy games out on the floor of Goodwill. They usually end up in pockets pretty quickly. Replaced both batteries in Pokemons and they work fine.

Yep, Luigis Mansion for $10!

Not much game-related today, but I did find a nice complete DDR: Mario Mix set for $10. I know the price has plummeted, but I've always wanted to have a copy of that.

Been to busy to post, but here's what I've gotten in past few weeks:
$25 at a GW for this N64 lot
Posted Image

Call of Duty Prestige Edition (PS3) -- $20 at the same GW, different day. Only things missing is the game and steelbook, everything else was never used
Posted Image

And if anybody has any freaking clue on these old PC games.. I would gladly appreciate it. I know some of them are somewhat valuable, but some others i have no idea such as modem wars and holiday lemmings. These were all $1 so I couldn't pass them up since they were CIB
Posted Image
Panzer General is brand new, sealed.

And just an idea of what they pretty much all look like..

:drool:

OMG at those pc games. The only time I find old boxed PC games they are $3-5 a piece. I'd kill to find a lot like that at a thrift for that price.

You want advice, you've got 11 games there at $1 a piece, you paid what, $13 after tax? Sell them to me and I'll double your money. 8-)

I decided to drop by *my* Goodwill (not yours, mguiddy ;)) and my timing paid of yet again.

They just started putting a cart of stuff on the shelves, and I ended up with:

SNES with The Lion King, two controllers and all cables. This is the first SNES I've found in the wild with NO yellowing whatsoever.

NES with Defender 2, two controllers, zapper and all cables. It was dirty , but overall good condition.

And a bag full of NES and SNES games. The highlights of the bag are a yellow label metroid, Zelda and Zelda 2 gold carts, super Mario 3, Battletoads, Killer Instinct and a bunch of others I can't recall off the top of my head.

The SNES and NES were tagged $30, and the cashier rang them up together for $30. The bag of games was $20.

I'm on my phone, at my in laws and the bag is in the car, so I'll update later.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

Boxed PC is the only thing I collect.

It's not entirely accurate though. $30 for a complete copy of Ultima VII is a steal IMO. EDIT: Maybe not... I swear a complete copy went for more... maybe prices dropped a bit since the last time I checked.

Also, there can be a price difference between different versions of computer games which that site doesn't track. For instance, Amiga versions might be priced higher than DOS versions or Apple II versions or Apple Mac versions or...
That site lumps everything into "PC Games" even though there are a handful of different computer platforms.
Search for "King's Quest I", there's one listing for it on that site, but it was released on about seven different computer platforms that could each have different values.
Some people could even put different values on different media (5 1/4 floppy, 3 1/2 floppy, or CD) releases.

Yea, they only separate by pc, mac and commodore 64...I wish they had an Amiga section as I put my Amiga collection (Mostly SSI AD&D games) on craigslist for $50 and got a bunch of responses so I looked on ebay and there aren't any collections even close to mine that went for a bunch more. A few Clue books I have went for $25 apiece. Anyways I decided to hunt this summer for a few titles I am missing and Ebay the whole lot...

Had the first decent day in a long time. Paid $45 for everything. Would have left the games but they were bundled with the system. I'll probably just use the nice cases to replace a few of mine and toss the rest at the flea market.

Can anybody tell me what, if anything, I'm missing from the WoW CE (besides the game)? And the cards are all sealed still, would that have any effect on the value? I paid $15 for it and I'm looking to flip it, but I know nothing about WoW, I just checked the prices on amazon and went for it.
Haha, scratch that I just figured it out. No mousepad :/

I can understand that with the cashier, I would've asked for a manager.
