    Man, retro games had some really weird and dumb names.

    Boxed, no inserts. Still pretty uncommon to find the box. Spent all afternoon jamming on adventure island 3. Definitely one of my favorite NES games I thought I would never own.

    Also sometimes you're at a party and volunteer yourself to get a mohawk. Then you need to follow up with actually getting your hair shaved into a mohawk.

    Very rarely you don't regret it.

    Today is a rare day.

    Then a shell swap. All the megaman series had either boring grey or black shells. And shit. I really want to know where you go for these things. The n64 games cost like 40-120euro a piece of here....

    Lol my secret is simple. Stalk your local newspapers for lawn sales, also Craig's list garage sale section. Look every single day. Your best bet is "community sales" in older developments or even better- old trailer parks. Sometimes they specifically list video games (aka you better damn make sure you get there first) but usually you have to look for signs...pokemon, tmnt, action figures, boys toys...these are all buzzwords.

    Map out your destinations strategically by when the sale opens (get there 10 minutes early) and cross your fingers.

    Also- ASK IF THEY HAVE GAMES. My top finds have been people who didn't have their stuff out. They went inside "yeah I think I have some of that."

    Finally, know prices and know when to walk away. Most people are completely ignorant of their stuffs value. This can work to your advantage or against you. Don't be afraid to offer less...unless its already a steal. Then don't **** with it. Buy it and run.

    It takes dedication and effort...but it's doable.

    Respectable hobby and nice find.
    I was greatly saddened recently when a friend of mine got 4 unopened copies of FF7 at an auction for $12.
    Oh and they were originals, not greatest hits.

    I was told dumpster diving is legal as long as that the said dumpster is not locked or enclosed in a locked structure. I am not sure how accurate that is but it's how I get all my favorite seafood.
