I look at a lot of eBay auctions for games, and in the process I've found that a lot of
people can't read or can't manage to type what they read. Usually this just results
in a lot of auctions for Asteriods and Tag-Scan, but sometimes the outcome is much
funnier. I've been saving my favorites as I find them and I thought I'd share.... enjoy. :)

Ok, that's about the funniest thing I've seen in quite a while... Amazing how careless people can be.

That makes me laugh. It's sad because it hurts their auction. Say some one made an ad called Chuck the Chase Wagon, and the opening price was $0.49. :-0

Don't forget about the laziness factor. I see a great number of what I presume to be Sears 2600 carts listed as "110 video games" or "64 video games". The seller doesn't bother to look at the end label to see that they are really Space Invaders and Asteroids. Some of these are more difficult to figure out if you don't already have the games. :ponder:

That's true. It's sad because people are too lazy just to look at a label.

Glad y'all liked it. :)

My favorite is Noxxvz. Took me a while to figure out what it was supposed to be.
Then I realized it's Zaxxon upside down.

Fapper. That could be a pirate of Beat 'em and Eat 'em. :)

Dil's Weed? :lol:

Demon Act: The second sequel to Sister Act.

And Spaced Invaders was a silly movie.

I couldn't figure out what Dil's Weed was supposed to be until I saw Loopine and realized that these were Colecovision carts. Wow.

Those are great! I needed a good laugh today. I can't help but think of what a homebrew game with some of those titles might be like. :D

I'm surprised NE146 hasn't commented on Titankham and Wood Zapper yet. ;)

Nice list, could have been used for a Wacky Packages spin-off series called Wacky Video Game Cartridges!


Now there's an idea. Hmmm... :ponder:

Some of them could be correctly written by the sellers because many pirates change the name of the original game a little bit like river reed instead of river raid etc.

Wow. Interestingly enough, 2 of the 3 that have the proper name on the carts he misspelled in the description (Riddle of the Sphimx and Warlocks), but he spelled all the misspellings correctly!
