Well, not just any game store. Most of them are taken over by EB games or Gamestop, and all the good stuff is gone. But there is a place at the Walpole mall near my school called Play 'N Trade that still carries old stuff. Which is great, because I was sick of having to deal with ebay just to get some NES games. I payed 100 bucks just to get an NES in good condition on ebay with some games.

So, I walked into this game store planning on spending no more than 25 bucks. And what do you know, I see Excitebike and Metroid for 10 and 15 bucks. So I grab those and get ready to go when I see this:



And the price tag:



And I said, "F**k yes!" And grabbed that, along with an extra controller and Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition (it was the only good game there for the Genesis, all the rest were Football and Hockey games).

So I ended up spending 56 bucks instead of 25. I completely lost control today.

But oh well, I've got a Genesis II now to keep with my Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and Nintendo 64.

Anyone else got any old consoles?

Nice! Oldest consoles I have are my SNES and Sega Genesis.

I have emulated NES w/ USB NES controller.

Oldest system I have is my Commodore 128

Genesis sure did have some fun games, sad to see Sega lost it after that console. :(

I remember Sega Genesis. I think we had the games everybody else had: Sonic the Hedgehog, Toejam and Earl, and whatever Star Wars game they had for it (I remember Admiral Ackbar telling you "Destroy all enemy fighters!").

Dammit, now I need to go buy one of these too :(

I was looking on ebay. There aren't a lot of buy it now sales for them, and the ones that are a buy it now sale are all outrageous prices (50 bucks or more. I paid 20 bucks for mine, and another 4 bucks for a 2nd controller). A lot of the buy it now ones have games with them but they seem to just load it up with sports games, which are a dime a dozen (as I saw in the game store today).

I've also got a PS2, a Gamecube, and a Wii. My dad has a 360. We did have a PSX but it crapped out. I've also got a DS and a GBA SP. I used to have a regular GBA and a Gameboy Color.

I still spend more time with the NES and SNES than any others though.

We used to have a ton of them, but 1/2 of it got thrown out because someone thought we no longer had a Commodore in our family... The other 1/2 was safely packed in my room like the pack rat I am, because I intended on replacing the broken Commodore 64 we had (Which I did, with a C128 w/ C-1541 Disk drive)

Nothing gets better than those games. Though I need to get a new joystick :p

A heavily used, 21 year old joystick is showing wear :lol2:

I had a ton of games, not even sure which ones I had. They're all piled away in my closet and I haven't looked at them in years, just never got around to throwing them out. It's amazing what they used to be able to do with less than 64k.
