What Are Your Best Video Game Bargain Finds?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What Are Your Best Video Game Bargain Finds?

Well when I was younger I had two primary interests outside of the team sports I played: history and video games. Fortunately for me sometime in the very early 2000's those two naturally lead me to take up an interest in older video games, and I decided I wanted an original Nintendo like the one I'd play that seemingly all my cousins owned when I was really little.

To do that I just guessed at a website domain name (in the days before decent search engines like Google or AskJeeves that's what a lot of us did lol) and landed on "usedgames.com"... I imagine over the following months that I directed my parents there for Christmas and my birthday and saved up money myself that we weren't actually getting a decent deal, but that collection I accrued actually came just before NES games began really skyrocketing in price. At this point I imagine they'd cost a silly amount more than they did at the time, so I'm happy that I took an early interest in them.

Actually, I guess that doesn't really qualify as a "bargain find" so much as it was just really good timing lol

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

Three years ago, I was considering buying a Zelda game (for the first time). Then I saw that Pokémon ORAS owners could get a free game in the eShop. I chose A Link Between Worlds. It's still my absolute favorite video game.

I also could have bought the Metroid Prime Trilogy for £3 two years ago, but I didn't because I don't like the Wii. Now I kind of regret that.

Mass Effect 2 and 3 for $5 each and only about a year after release for both of them

I have a few that come to mind. I once bought a Gamecube controller lot, sold as-is. Four controllers (three official Nintendo, one third party), got them for $30. This is right during the Smash 4 rush where GC controllers jumped in price too. I expected maybe one to work and that I could Frankenstein another, but every single one works as if it's brand new, they're all clean, absolutely amazing deal!

Another time, at a pawn shop I found Ratchet & Clank 1 CiB for $5, with the now seemingly hard to find poster included as well!



You should check out my YouTube channel, The Golden Bolt!  I review all types of video games, both classic and modern, and I also give short flyover reviews of the free games each month on PlayStation Plus to tell you if they're worth downloading.  After all, the games may be free, but your time is valuable!

The bolt avatar makes perfect sense now.
