Yay! I'm definitely in again.  $60 sounds good to me!

I would be shocked if any game surpasses Elden Ring for GOTY- it's been kind of a quiet year for games generally.

I thought a CIB Trouble Shooter for Genesis would forever elude me, but I just got it in a trade today that I only had $55 invested in total (look out for those black label ps1 variants, a lot are worth $$$) It's hard to really say never...

Honestly very few games that I actually still want and are on my current wishlist are "priced out" for me- I do plan to one day drop the 5k on a CIB Dino Park Tycoon so I can complete my 3DO Longbox set. But that's about the only game I would spend that much on besides perhaps a Daytona Netlink to "fully" complete my NA Saturn set.  Keio will likely be spendy too once I bite the bullet on that one.

I'm probably priced out of ever owning a stadium events or nintendo world championship cart.  probably a cib sculptor's cut too if it remains 10k or higher and a lot of the nes super-heavies cib- if I cared more about nes maybe I would change my mind.  I'm also priced out of some of the super-heavies on original gameboy- I'm not going to be dropping 3-4k on a kid dracula or amazing tater anytime soon.

I still really enjoy this site and actively use it to track my collection. My problem is that if I'm looking for quick engagement- I can find that in my local fb collecting groups. The forum here is just a very old school communication format. If I want to share a picture in a fb group it takes 20 second- here it takes much longer. I can also easily buy/sell in fb groups- here it is more complicated.

Sure- there are definitely occasional periods during the year where I can't seem to get into any game.

Not having that problem right now though- Elden Ring is so good...

The company is abhorrent but these days you can get some ridiculous deals from gamestop- trade in credit bumps and crazy discounts- I would miss those.

I honestly don't remember the last time I saw a discount at GameStop that made me want to pick up something.  At least not in store.

When they run their promotion- buy a certain number of titles, get 50% off you can get some pretty wild deals- Gamestop this past winter was crazy- so many good deals- I cleaned up. They did buy 2 get 1 free with new games too for the first time- 50% off 1st party nintendo switch and so much more. In store and online. And when you combine that with some of the trade-in specials they run- they are so poorly optimized- people were buying titles like back 4 blood and no man's sky and getting $15-$20 more a game by trading them into a different location. Literally free money.

It is possible to get some absolutely insane deals at gamestop if you pay close attention.  But usually only in the holiday season-  otherwise I ignore Gamestop for the first 9 months of the year usually.

Classic Video Games / Re: What game are you acquiring next?
« on: February 18, 2022, 01:57:40 am »
Have quite a few packages on the way- so depends on what arrives first. Hoping it's the CIB copy of Castlevania Aria of Sorrow that I finally snagged for a great price.

Also waiting on a lot of about 20 boxed NES, SNES and 64 titles that's coming in a few days. So that might be next.

Yeah same here. I can click on the game- add to collection and then go back and delete the wishlist item- but I preferred the old method. Thanks for looking into it.

So this is now happening to me- but when I log out and back in- it still shows shelf view, even when I have normal view selected. Anyway to switch it back to normal? Shelf view is cool but I prefer the normal view.

I was able to beat 29 games in 2021. That's a lot more than usual. Hoping I can keep it up next year and beat more retro games too.
