Sold the Parasite Eve case for $5. I can't seem to flip a ps2 title but a ps1 case no problem



Namco Museum for original Xbox



Kind of a stupid pickup lol
Saw this for $3 at goodwill and it intrigued me. I know some retro collections can have some value and I figured I might be able to flip it for $10.
It has a cool collection of games but I don't have an original Xbox and it's basically worthless. Maybe worth $5 at most :rolleyes:


Maken X for Dreamcast



Not a "Thrift" find, but game I have been really interested in for a while.
Got it at a local game store for $17, a fair price.

It's a really cool game, a first person sword fighter published by Atlus.
The controls are a little clunky but solid for a Dreamcast first person game with 1 control stick
It has a similar target system to Ocarina of Time and you can play with different character by "brainjacking" them.
Only a couple hours into it but liking it so far; I love the animation style, this game really has that late 90s Sega feel to it. :)

I wanted to include it in my totals because I'm not just doing this to make money, but to get some games I want to play without spending too much.

Not for resale!

Profit: $93.5/$172/$78.5

Metal Gear Solid VR Missions and Spider-Man for Playstation 1



Never heard of this MGS game before. I am a fan of the series but have only played through the first one and Twin Snakes remake for Gamcube.
I think this version of Spider-Man is somewhat sought after..



Rainbow Six and Fighting Force 2 for Playstation 1



I wish Fighting Force was the Dreamcast version <_<

Nothing crazy but a nice little haul for one Goodwill trip; picked up all 4 for $8. I think I can get ~$15 for the Spider-Man game alone :)

Profit:$101.5/$172/$70.5

Where do you live? Never find shit around here from Goodwill/Thrift stores.

Nice little collection starting though.

/e Tactics Ogre would have made you a lot if it came with the case, loose copy is still a decent price though.

Just read you only sold it for $25, could have easily made double loose.

I live in a Bloomington, Indiana.

I find goodwill to be hit or miss based on location. There are 2 goodwills in my town and one rarely has anything gaming related; when they do it is frequently a shit GameCube or PS3 title in the locked case for $10... way over retail for most of the games as it is. The other one has good stuff from time to time.

PlayStation 1 games seem to be the most frequent things I see at a thrift store that are a good deal. Rarely do I look at a section if they are displaying games. Rather, I look through bulk used CDs or VHS and find some games (mistakenly?) thrown in there. I may appear lucky at goodwill from my posts but I go twice a week and 9 times out of 10 find nothing lol :)

Garage sales are a better way to go if your only goal is to resell


Edit: I agree, in retrospect I sold ogre tactics too cheap but I'm no expert on prices haha

That's actually not too far off from where I was living last month (Evansville, In). Most of my finds typically came from Craigslist/some local comic book store.

I also collect steelbooks of current/last gen games, and for those I always went to a place called Super Mega Replay in town since they always priced them the same as actual games.

Would get a $30 steelbook for around $10, same with the collectors editions as they sold them at the same price. Hell, anything cheaper than ebay is a win for me.

Ah, a fellow Hoosier. I've only lived in Indiana for a year and half but I have been surprised how much I like living in Bloomington. I have never been to Evansville but I visit family in Oklahoma from time to time and drive by that way.. maybe I'll check out Super Mega Replay someday

Picked up a new Dreamcast game, Carrier:



Traded in a couple games to a local game store that I picked up recently (FFX (had 2 copies), Namco Museum, and Smuggler's Run because I had it listed for $5 with no takers for over a month..) and paid $10 cash.

Never played a survival horror for the Dreamcast. I want to also pick up Resident Evil Code Veronica and Dino Crisis too... hopefully I can find them for cheap sometime lol

Happy to add another game to my meager 12 game Dreamcast Library :)

Sold Spider-Man today for $12


Picked up a couple more Playstation 1 games:

Galaga Destination Earth and Tunnel B1



Never heard of the Galaga game.. but it was in good condition and seemed interesting.
I think Tunnel B1 is a pretty early release for the playstation. I know it was released on the Sega Saturn too.
It's an interesting game, it's like a mix between Fzero and Twisted Metal. The mechanics and first person view make me feel dizzy though

Got them at Goodwill for $3. Mediocre titles always from Goodwill :)

Profit: $114.5/$195/$80.5
