  1. The SNES is a great console with some awesome games. Those 2 Mario games are some of the best SNES games they made. That's about a $60 haul -- for $10. sweet. ive always passed up snes at garage sales all the time. I should have picked them up sooner. I guess because I was out of the gaming era when snes was out and I was mad that the star wars games werent the arcade ports. that got me upset the most. how is the snes library with arcade ports? anything like the reg. nes?
  2. Went to a "grandma's attic" on Friday night (its really on saturdays but I get in a day early since I knew the organizer) and I nabbed this for $10:
  3. I just noticed the guy's name......."Eddie Arcadiann". thats the name of the guy in "the last dragon!"

  5. I bought my CV with 26 games for $50 from a CL deal, but it didn't have an AC adapter. After you factor in $30 to 4jays for the adapter, I have about $80 into it. You were not getting ripped at this yard sale, at least on the CV and games. I only wanted 3 of the games and I dont have time anymore to sell the rest of the stuff on ebay.
  6. coleco WAS NOT boxed, neither were the games. The last two BOXED ColecoVisions on eBay went for $150.00 and $202.75 (with 4 boxed common games). So the days of getting a boxed CV on eBay for cheap seem to be over with and therefore that garage sale system for $75 with all those games looks like a good deal now... but that is all relevant to what you are willing to pay. last summer, I paid $10 for a boxed colecovision at a garage sale, down from $12.
  7. my bro was watching "pawn stars" and he said some guy went in trying to sell one for $1000 and they gave him $600 for the games. not too shabby!
  8. not unreasonable for ebay, but unreasonable for a garage sale. like others have said, if it doesnt work then its buyers remorse at garage sales. if he wanted ebay prices then he should have sold it on ebay. of course, uncle sam would like a cut if he wants that much.
  9. thanks!! i thought it was a lie when he called and he said it was for free. it took him a week to get baxk to me but it was well worth it.
  10. heres the ad, but i never saw it: http://newyork.craigslist.org/lgi/ele/1967706246.html
  11. I stopped by a garage sale in a rich part of long island today and asked for video games and old toys. the guy said "yea, i have old video games". I walk over to see about 20 coleco games and a coleco, as well as a boxed turbo grafix and an nes with assorted games. I saw stickers on the coleco box (not coleco box, but just a box that contained them) that read "75". I assumed it was "75 cents" so I grabbed all that I could hold then offered him $15. he was like "no, that $75 for the coleco. I originally wanted $150 but lowered is since a buy said he was coming monday for it. I got the prices from ebay." I was like WTF? I replied "GOOD LUCK BUDDY!" he wanted $95 for the turbo grafix. I snapped a picture of the coleco cartrides i wanted that i didnt have b4 i left:
  12. You're not - Donkey Kong was voted the toughest arcade game of all time. I guess it depends on which list you go by, but the lists I have seen voted Ghosts and goblins the hardest. And I agree it is a pretty impossible game. ive finished it.
  13. most arcade games are like that. they all have patterns and when you memorize them, theyre easy to beat.
  14. It's only my opinion I think if you aren't operating commercially "trying to make money with the ROMS" they prob don't mind with the older non franchise games if anything it's keeping interest alive in something that would be lost otherwise.Think about it like obscure Youtube music videos the record companies don't mind so much because if somebody likes the music video they might go out and buy the album. thats something I dont understand about youtube: how some artists hate it. well, videos were made to promote a song or artist. they werent meant to make them money. why would an artist get mad if thier video were on youtube, like Prince. where else can one see a prince video now? mtv doesnt play videos and its not like prince is selling his videos on the dvd/blue ray market.
  15. Ive always loved rygar and I hated nintendo for years for screwing up a great game. I never understand how or why they never made it like the arcade. why did they always change the arcade versions when bought to the nes?
