Game Hunter

Trophy Room 2016

This was not a great year, I didn't get out much and when I did there weren't many games in the wild.


Four NES games

Four NES games

These were at an estate sale for a few bucks each. This isn't a bad mix of games though.


WWE PSP games

WWE PSP games

Is the PSP considered "retro" now? Either way, here are a couple clearance games I grabbed for $1 at Half Price Books.


King's Quest VII

King's Quest VII

Another clearance item at Half Price Books. I never played this one back in the day but will likely try it eventually.


Space Invaders for Super Famicom

Space Invaders for Super Famicom

Over the summer I took a little trip to San Diego. Nice city, maybe a little hot for me. Anyway, I wandered down to a part of town called North Park that features a number of eclectic stores. One of them had a few Super Famicom games for under $10 so I picked-up the ones that didn't require too much Japanese to play. This picture was taken at the microbrewery next door to the shop.


PlayStation games

PlayStation games

Wandering around my neighborhood one Saturday I found a couple good sales. One had a bunch of PlayStation games for $5 each so I bought ones I thought I'd play. At another there were a couple $1 PC games. I suppose Cinemania '96 isn't really a game but how could I resist?


Library sale

Library sale

Here's a weird one - I was driving around and saw a sign that said "Library Sale" but it was at a high school gym. Apparently once a year a local library takes all their donations/overstock and sells them at blowout prices. There were a ton of people there so I figure this must have been going on for a while and I was oblivious to it. I picked-up an odd mix of games and books there. Each of these were a dollar or less.


Visual Basic 6

Visual Basic 6

This I got for the low price of nothing. I was dropping off a few things at the electronics recycling center and spotted a fresh new copy of Visual Basic 6 there. Who would ever think to discard a treasure like this? So for the first and last time I ignored the "No Scavenging" sign and gave it a new home.
