Just ordered Super Off Road for the NES online for $4.50, which is cheaper than what it'd cost on the VC. This includes shipping. Can't wait. The NES version is a great port of an arcade classic.

The SNES cartridge or the download?

What I meant was old games you bought, not downloaded. And this excludes any system introduced since 2000.

The cartridge for $30. I was going to get it for VC, but I got impatient and bought it at Play'n'Trade instead.

What's even worse is that I bought it two days before it hit the VC in NA. Ah well, I guess it's good for collection purposes too. (not that I actually collect games in the first place :P) I also didn't feel like shelling out $20 for a Classic Controller.

A SEGA Saturn console for $50. It came with a few decent games but nothing to write home about.

Ah! I just read the 3rd post after adding my last "retro" purchase. I'd consider GCN games and PS2 games as Retro games, in all honesty. Even Nintendo counts GCN games as Retro since they're in the retro category.

Since GC and PS2 games are rather modern IMO, I don't really consider them all that retro. Nostalgic, sure, but not retro (yet).

I've been on a huge retro game binge recently, and have been eBaying lots of stuff. Most recent includes Kirby Pinball Land, Kurukuru Kururin, Sonic Battle, Faxanadu, Pokémon Snap and Shantae. Yes, Shantae was the most expensive of them all. I won it for £185! The rest was rather cheap, never going for more than £10 per game.

Kirby's Adventure - (Nes)

As sad as it sounds, the 'only' Kirby games I've ever really played and finished are Kirby's Dreamland and Kirby Canvas Curse :p I have fond memories of playing Dreamland back on the GB when i was a child, but I finally got around to beating it a year ago. And while it's unique, has great music, fun gameplay and beautiful graphics. It's just too damn easy, but Hard mode is a different story! kirby Canvas Curse on the other hand was amazing. One of the best(if not thee') DS games I've ever played :D

I bought another Game Boy Color from Play 'n' Trade not too long ago. It was a It was a special edition Pokemon Gold/Silver themed one with metallic, color changing gold/silver paint and it had Pikachu and Pichu on it (Pikachu's cheek lit up as the power light). It's so neat! I also got it for the dirt cheap price of $13 in pretty great condition. I was actually looking for that very same game boy color on ebay before I bought it and then I visited Play 'n' Trade and couldn't believe my eyes. I bought it in a Heartbeat.

I have been buying a lot of game boy/ game boy color games on eBay lately. A few of the games I have bought: Pokemon Gold, Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons, Kirby Dreamland, Kirby Pinball Land, Dragon Warrior Monsters, Donkey Kong Land II, Donkey Kong Land III, Donkey Kong, Super Mario Land, and a few others. I'm also watching some more that I will probably bid on. Most of these games I have gotten for about 3-4 dollars. (and that's with shipping included!)

Last year I bought a SNES with two controllers Super Mario all stars, Street fighter 2 Turbo Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, UN Squadron, Super Metroid, Zelda a Link to the Past, Contra 3, and probably another game or two that I can't remember atm plus a NTSC to PAl converter (console is PAL some of the games are NTSC) AND an N64 with two controllers and Super Mario 64, the two Zeldas, Mario Kart, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Pokemon Stadium and some other games aswell. It was my first and only retro buy and I only had to pay 20 euros for it :p hehe kinda ripped the shop off, but in all honesty I didn't know these retro games were more expensive than that back then, neither did the shop owner..... :p
