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

A couple of years ago the main local grocery store decided they had enough of carrying the Vita.

I got a PSTV, a Sony official charge cable,a Sony official dock, a Sony official recharge pack, and ten games (Earth Defense Force 2, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Assassin's Creed Liberation, God of War collection, Borderlands 2, Killzone Mercenary, Persona 4 Golden, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Tearaway, and Lumines) all brand new, sealed, for $60

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!

The bolt avatar makes perfect sense now.

Ha! Yep, that's the short of it, at least indirectly! It's actually the logo I use for my YouTube channel, wherein the scoring system for my reviews is based on different Bolts. The Bolt part obviously came from Ratchet lol, it was a unique way to pay homage to my favorite franchise. 

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!

Red Faction: Guerrilla for 4€, great value for that price.

Got an original xbox off freecycle. The person was just round the corner from my house. Came with 2 controllers and half a dozen games. Was very lightly used probably because the games included were some of the worst xbox games I remember. All aimed at young children or dance related.

About a year ago I found Stubbs the Zombie for the OG Xbox in mint condition for about 5 bucks. It ebays for much more and surprise surprise - it's a great game to boot.

I also picked up Kinect Sports Rivals for 10 bucks and it's a great game too!

I found the whole NEC Supergrafx (only) game library (5 games!) at a used store for 100 yen each (just under a $1 USD each). Hucard games only (no box/manual), but still nice. Sold 1941 for about $200, Aldynes for just under $100, and sold Daimakaimura (Ghouls’n Ghosts]) for just under $50.

Included the other two common/cheaper games with my Supergrafx system when I sold it off. I wasn’t really using it (wasn’t RGB modded) and I wasn’t really into the five exclusive games besides GnG. Not worth keeping a system around for though. Still have my RGB modded Turbo Duo-R for standard PC Engine Hucard/CD games.

Got the mass effect trilogy for 5 bucks a few years back. Best purchase ever...

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Driveclub for 3€ and NHL 17 for 4€ were pretty good, I think.

Orphan Scoin of Sorcery on PS2.

The game was horrible...but for some reason I liked it. Do not know why or how, but I played it over and over several times. Best waste of 10 bucks I ever had.

Nintendo Switch Friend Code: SW-5643-2927-1984

Animal Crossing NH Dream Address: DA-1078-9916-3261

Well, I managed to get Mega Man X3 for 16 USDs about, granted it's the Japanese version. Still, that price beats around 200 at the least.
