Video Game Database Discussion / Nintendo 3DS games paper inserts?
« on: April 19, 2021, 06:41:03 pm »
Sorry if this thread topic has been covered before...

Has it been considered for the 3DS games entries to include front page scans of the paper inserts? I've only been collecting games for the 3DS for a few months now and have noticed that titles from before 2015 generally contain unique paper inserts for each game. Titles released after, including Nintendo Selects reprints, seem to all include only a generic white pamphlet, though even with these, I've seen at least two variants of this generic manual of sorts.

I've bought a handful of games used that came with the original case, but with no paper inserts inside. I'd like to make some kind of attempt at finding loose paper inserts to put in them, but there's no way I can determine which ones pertain to each particular release as there are no pictures of them for the 3DS games entries in the database...

One example is a used copy of A Link Between Worlds that I have (the variant that says Handheld Game of the Year on it) had the papers missing, but I have no idea if it originally came with a unique Zelda insert or just the generic white one.

Links (no pun intended) to other sites that covers this, if anyone else knows, would be much appreciated.

I already posted about one missed opportunity in this thread, but of course I have many more and no doubt others do too. Let's hear about them.

I guess I lucked out by getting a single copy for myself at all, but I'm still haunted by the memory of the giant bin of pristine, shrink-wrapped copies of Drill Dozer for the GBA going for FIVE (5) dollars each at a Target in 2007 or 2008. Indeed I grabbed one for myself, fun game, good game, but I should have bought EVERY SINGLE ONE in there, there were at least a dozen copies arghhhhhhsjkngksldfnglkf.
