Haven't really gotten much lately. Did go to a store in Atlanta and picked up Legacy of the Wizard, a general NP Tricks and Tips guide from ~1992, Jet Force Gemini, Resident Evil 0, and Darkened Skye for $44.47. They had Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ for $90 there, but I decided to pass.

Holy crap, is that what that game is going for now? I used to own it (and enjoyed the hell out of it), but ended up trading it in at some point after playing through it a bunch of times. Wish i had held on to it!

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong.
Urban Champion is GLORIOUS.

Yeah unfortunately I haven't down any new retro purchases lately mainly due to time and money. With my rent going up next month I doubt I will even be making many retro game purchases here soon. 😥

After my recent dissapointment of all the ps1 games being fake and thus not buying them (made a forum post about the games), followed by a string of dissapointments I finally had some luck.

Last weekend I bought new copies of rhythm paradise and geometry wars for the DS for a total of €3 (my local toy store still had them hidden away in a sale bin from 10 years ago).
I bought jack skellington for DI, super mario land 2 and a gb game holder for €5.
And last but not least I bought a gameboy player add on for the gamecube + beyond good and evil and sonic gems collection for €25. (The GB player actually came with a gamecube, lotr return of the king and a controller but I resold that for €40 to a friend, the GC usually goes for €50 where I live)

@darkswabber Congrats, those are some very nice deals. Isn't the GC version of Beyond Good and Evil pricey these days?

@MarcelRguez factory sealed, yes. Used, about €10.
I think any factory sealed game from generation 6 and before are worth a fortune.

@darkswabber Just 10€? Man, there's no demand for that game at all, huh? I was expecting it to be more in the 25-40 range, since there aren't that many GC copies floating around here.

Isn't it more common on one or both of its generation rivals? Being a non-exclusive game would probably reduce its value a bit.

MarcelRguez

@KingMike Yeah, I've seen the PS2 version once or twice on my local stores, but no Xbox or GameCube versions. You can get it extremely cheap for PC these days too.

That said, a copy of the GC version will cost you around 30€ on eBay.

Had luck again and bought 28 ps2 games and a demo disc for €15 (including a undamaged 100% complete version of scarface: the world is yours collectors edition)
Also bought zoo tycoon 2 and the sims 2 for the ds for €4 and bought a real cartridge of pokemon emerald for €5 (battery still works but not for long)

Hi guys! Speaking about retro purchases... I'm interested in purchasing a GBA SP, and I saw a deal near me and I'm really keen on it. The GBA is the red version (-001) and it's in a really good condition, being sold at 20€. What do you guys think about it?

DarumakaSensei

darkswabber

Can’t type everything out so added a phote.
Initially got it for free but that felt like stealing, they didn’t accept more than €50 (went to their kids)

Includes a ps1, ps2, xbox, wii, FFVII, VIII, IX, X-2, XII, dark cloud, star ocean, abe’s odyssey, abe’s exodus, shadow of the collossus collectors edition, MGS1, 2, 3, twilight princess, mario kart wii, legacy of kain and much much more (total of 74 games)

@darkswabber Deal of the century right there. The PAL versions of Symphony of the Night and Legend of Dragoon alone are pricier than what you paid.

I've bought some GBA stuff recently:

  • Castlevania: Circle of the Moon
  • Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance
  • Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors
  • Final Fantasy VI Advance
  • Mario Party Advance
  • NES Classic Metroid
  • Puyo Pop Fever

That means I finally have all Mario, Metroid, Castlevania and Final Fantasy games on the system. I also got myself an original Game Boy rarity: Cave Noire. It's a Rogue-like in the style of the Shiren or Torneko games, made by Konami for the Game Boy. Japanese import, but the game is pretty self-explanatory, as you can see:

It amuses me that there's a Game Boy game out there with this level of random generation, I quite like it.

I am waiting for my GB games to arrive:

  • Pokémon Gold
  • Pokémon Silver
  • Pokémon Red
  • Pokémon Blue
  • Pokémon Yellow
    I also got my Castlevania Aria of Sorrow and Castlevania Harmony of Dissonance!

@MarcelRguez yeah where I live I could easily sell the whole haul for €3.000 with a bit of patience.
Not going to do it though, I’m only selling the consoles and accesories, mario kart and twilight princess since I already have those (going to trade them in for some ps4, ds and 3ds games including megaman ZX advent, kirby triple deluxe and ni non kuni 2)

Seeing your history in this forum topic, You activily collect games too right?
How much games do you own currently (and if it’s not too much to ask, how much per platform)

@darkswabber I do, yeah, but mainly GBA games since I don't really have that many systems. I started about a year and a half ago, buying loose carts and making my own boxes. It's coming along nicely.

(Sorry for the quality of the pics, my phone has a terrible camera)

I'm currently sitting at ~145 games. A few of those are repro carts, mainly some fan translations (Mother 3, Magical Vacation and the like) and games I just won't come across ever (i.e. Invader in the first picture). Without those, it's around 140.

I'm only just starting with Game Boy games (10). I've also been rebuilding a 360 collection (27) and I bought most things worth getting on the Wii U (44).

And as a general question to the thread, what do you guys use to keep track of your collections? I've been using My Game Collection recently and it's been treating me well. Used to just make lists on Evernote, but the app is a bit wonky on my phone.

@MarcelRguez great collection. My biggest collection for a single console is ps2 with about 96 games followed by ps3 with 68 games.
I’m currently at about 300+ physical games boxed and around 350 physical games total (gba, gbc, gb, n64 and atari 2600 loose cartridges counted with them)

As for keeping track of games, I used darkadia for about 4 months but it isn’t that good. Now I’m using CLZ games for IOS which is really usefull, it let’s you scan barcodes and has every version of a game in it (pal version, us, platinum, player choice, greatest hits, deluxe, collectors. You name it they have it)
I use the trial version currently but I’m going to buy the full version at the end of the month (one time payment, €15, account can be used on IOS, android and pc)

If you’re serious about collecting CLZ seems to be the best option, even according to other more famous collectors on youtube and stuff. The have a version for games, for movies (dvd, blu-ray, video etc), for books, for cd’s and for records.

@darkswabber That's quite a lot of games. I've been discouraged from collecting discs because of my experience buying 360 games. Nothing worse than getting a game you've been eager to play and find out it works, but just barely. Is that an issue you've encountered with your PlayStation games, or did I just have a streak of bad luck?

I didn't know about that app. It looks very nice, but I'm not sure if it's worth migrating in my case (paid 3€ for My Game Collection, seems to do pretty much the same thing). I'll give the free version a try.
