First stop was Salvation Army, which is always hit or miss where retro games are concerned. Today was a pretty big hit. Nine Game Boy games in a plastic bag, marked at $10.99 for the lot. I'd have passed, but then I saw that Mary-Kate and Ashley game...
...actually, it was the Harvest Moon that pushed me over the edge.
The games are Sports Illustrated Golf Classic (valued at about $1), Buzz Lightyear of Star Command ($1), Harvest Moon GBC ($9), The New Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley ($1), Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers ($4), Centipede ($1), Top Rank Tennis ($1), Ultra Golf ($2), and Space Invaders ($4). So at around $24, this set is the star, regardless of quality. But hey, I love Harvest Moon games.
And the "meh" collection.
Next, a Goodwill. Sometimes you're out at a store and just think, "Y'know what? Damnit, I need some N64 games." Then you grab them all up and overpay like crazy.
Or maybe that's just me.
Anyway, the games are WCW vs NWO World Tour ($1), Hey You, Pikachu ($2) and Rayman 2 ($6). I paid almost $13. Yes, yes, I'm ashamed, but you know what? I don't care at all abut pro wrestling, and normally dislike pro wrestling games as a result. Wrestling games developed by AKI, though, are in a class of their own. I don't mind overpaying for that.
Besides, I'm still up around $10 in final value. So there!
