    I'm surprised that it's lower than the price it originally sold for at all.

    everything in that shop sells

    but that thing has never moved, not once

    Paid 3$ for a copy of Ico, they were taking out old PS2 titles from my local video store. Now if only I could find a cheap copy of HM: DS cute. Got Shadow of the Colossus for 15$ which was a pretty good find also.

    I think Tales of Symphonia I got for 25$ defiently played the worth out of that one many times over.

    I lost my SNES moving from one house to another. Lost were:

    Super Mario World
    Mario Kart
    DK 1, 2, & 3
    MegaMan X
    Joe and Mac (awesome game!! If only it had a save function)
    Speedy Gonzalez
    Yoshi's Island

    some other games I can't remember

    On the bright side I don't really like the Super Nintendo much.

    PS2... I bought Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow for $9, Second Sight for $9, and MGS3 for $30. One of the best gaming days of my life - except Second Sight was defective and I had to return it!

    Can't wait for a day like this with the PS3.

    Ah yeah, forgot about this, but I'm not quite sure if the game was rare. Still, good deal.

    Amplitude brand new for $1.97.

    The local K-Mart was turning into a Sears Essentials and therefore cleaning out its shelves, so it was on super-clearance.

    "Man I found a copy of Zelda TP GC version for like five bucks!"

    "Dude I found one at a garage sale for cheaper."

    "I know but after paying 70$ for FF XXII for my PS5 it seemed like a good deal."

    This thread ten years in the future.

    See, the thing is, I would expect a person who has that shit in the first place to know what the fuck's up. That's amazing that he let it go for $20.

    I bought my copy of FF3 from a friend for 5 bucks and some magic cards back in the day.

    There was an old video store in town going out of business and selling off all their old movies and games. I managed to pick up breath of fire 1 and 2, gunstar heroes, rocket knight adventures, secret of mana and Bad dudes all for a couple bucks a piece.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the number was over 100.

    Every day I look at Suikoden prices makes me thankful that I've bought every Suikoden at release

    that's it, I'm shutting this entire forum down, everyone thank buttcleft

    I once got a copy of FF2 for the SNES for a few burned CDs. And just recently I got a copy of Lufia 2 for $45, but that's not really a good deal. More like the going price.

    System Shock 2 for $5 not too long ago. I got it off of goozex for 100 or 150 points and now it's set to a more reasonable 650.

    I bought a copy of Earthbound for 55$ at a local comic book shop. Granted it's not the cheapest buy ever, but considering I was working out a deal with a coworker for 120$ for his copy, it was pretty cheap to me.

    Oh, and I also got these other SNES games for free from my Aunt who claimed they were all garbage:

    Super Metroid
    Secret Of Mana
    Donkey Kong Country 1/2
    Zelda: A Link To The Past
    Super Street Fighter 2
    Super Mario All Stars
    Super Mario World
    Harvest Moon
    Yoshi's Island

    And many more. But those are the games that stick out.
    Your aunt is an idiot.

    Oh wow, if your aunt thinks that's garbage she should see the BAD games out there. Sometimes I feel for the AVGN...

    I would have killed for those games back then, instead I got Bugs Bunny...

    I found all three Super Mario Bros NES games boxed at Game Stop over the course of half a year. They look so awesome on my wall. And the SMB was $.29 because it was mistakenly priced like the cheapo freebie SMB/Duck Hunt carts they used to have by the dozens.

    Sadly, that boxed SMB3 was the first step on the road to an expensive habit I was able to shed a year later. But not before it sucked over a thousand bucks out of me in the form of sticker covered video games and dusty old consoles off eBay. All of which is now (Aside from the aforementioned SMB games and a boxed copy of Tetris and some select other games) boxed in the basement and attic. I can never get my money back for that shit. I'm like the AVGN except I don't have any will to hook it all back up and review that crap.

    The boxed SMB1, 2 and 3 however will always have a place wherever my home is. They just look so nice together.

    I used to bid on consoles and games all the time. Had preferred sellers. I poured so much money over that year or so.

    But it was better and less expensive than my previous habit.. collecting old Macs. Do you know how much it costs just to ship even an old classic Mac Plus? Those things are heavy!

    Sooo glad I don't have any expensive habits right now. Seeing as I don't have money to throw away anymore.

    After I found mine in a discount bin about to be thrown out for 3$. Then again it wasn't in it's orginal case plus it didn't get a instruction book.

    Also I paid 30$ for quest 64, worse purchase ever.

    EDIT: Your macs remind me of the times I used to play Oregon Trail in grade school *sigh* those were the days.

    It's Aus$89.

    Which is like US$40 or something.

    And it happened because Ico is goddamn amazing and nearly impossible to find. Found an indie game store which carries it.

    Same store also has Shadow of the Collosus and MGS anthology, but they're NTSC. :(

    Edit: I bought it at 2008.

    Man, all of this talk of Ico being rare, you guys just need to move to the US.

    Up until about the time PS3/Wii hit, I couldn't walk around without tripping over a copy of Ico and landing face-first in a pile of Icos.

    The Macs are also in the attic. Except a select Mac SE which was my first and will also have a permanent place on display.

    I had a Duo 2300c with dock and monitor at one point. It was awesome. But I sold it for far less than I paid just to dump some stuff.

    If only I could go back to 2000 and warn myself. Don't do it. Don't spend all your hard earned money on old computers and video games that will end up taking up a large chunk of your parents basement and attic for the rest of eternity. Don't!

    Ico actually got a reprint, along with Dark Cloud 2, Wild Arms 3, and i think Amplitude, so that's how people were able to get it for so cheap. It was a Sony promotion a few years back.

    if they're planning to release it on xbla like they say, that'll drop fast

    holy shit i need to know if this also goes for the Pal version, because if it is that game is so going on ebay.

    got it for 25 euro's and only played it for a week.

    I got an unopened copy of WARIOWARE TWISTED for GBA for $4 Canadian a couple months back. It was from a Radio Shack (of all places) that was clearing out all their stock because it was closing shop.
    I had no idea how fun that game is...it was a steal for the tilt sensor attachment alone. Never have I ben so happy to see a holographic sticker on a thick yellow GBA box.:P

    Also, got Street Fighter 4 for the PS3 (used, but brand new condition) recently for $40 Canadian...it's $70 new.
