 Post subject: Best Deal
PostPosted: Mon Feb 16, '09, 5:16 pm 
Everyone wants to get the most bang for their buck when buying a game. Sometimes they're pretty expensive, after all. But other times, you can find them on sale for really great prices. What are some of the best deals you've taken advantage of when getting new games?

Discovering Amazon was the best thing I've ever come across for finding good deals on games.

I got Virtua Fighter IV for about four dollars at GameStop! Problem: The save feature didn't work. So I guess that wasn't so much of a deal. So other than that, I've scored pretty good deals with most of the used games that I have.

Last year (or maybe the year before), I found Tales of Phantasia GBA at a Toys R Us. It was marked at $20 I think, but rang up for $6 at the register. That's pretty good for a new game. :D

^Woot! Good deal~ That story does remind me of one of my own.....I saw a new copy of Grandia II for the PC at a Best Buy. It was marked like 14.99, and rang up as such. Which was lucky, because there was another new copy of Grandia II nearby marked at 19.99. :D

Most of my good deals are on used games, not new ones. But when I got a new copy of Okami, it was only forty bucks, not fifty. Great deal as far as I'm concerned because of how much I freakin' love and play that game.

Well I got Fighters MegaMix on the Saturn for FREE[not trying to brag]. This was back when I worked at Sears and they were moving the game dept around. A friend of mine worked there and he gave me a whole bunch of demo games, including that one. I also got PSO Ep 3 for FREE since someone traded it in at Gamestop and it wasn't in their system. Of course neither came with a book and Fighters MM didn't come with a case but free is better than cheap.

Abandonware/slightly dubious downloaded full games don't count, do they? =p

Hmm... the Activision Anthology for PS2 only set me back $12 back in '04, which I think is more than well worth it for 50 Atari 2600 games plus game commercials and 80s music. (Or as I call it, "Pressure Cooker, Pitfall!, Kaboom!, Freeway, Atlantis, commercials with Phil Hartman and Jack Black, plus about forty other games I'm never gonna play again.")

Another deal I got in '07 was a pretty nice one: Space Quest Collection (six games), Leisure Suit Larry Collection (five games), and Septerra Core, all for $45 total.

I got Xenosaga Episode II brand new with the bonus DVD for only $44.95 considering on its first release here it was $99.95 the most expensive PS2 game in Australia next to the Guitar Hero Series. I also bought Crimson Tears a few weeks ago for $7.95 cheapest PS2 I ever bought. Oh and the King of Fighter XI I bought for my PS2 for only $29.95 considering only 1000 copies of it were released in Australia that was a cheap price for the rarest game in the series. :wink:

I got a new copy of Okami (Wii version) for about 34.99, much cheaper than the other new Wii games. The game seems like a masterpiece to me, so it was a screaming deal! Another great game I got for cheap was Fire Emblem for the GBA; it only cost me eight dollars. :D
