I'd say based on what I can find and see here, expect you'll pay $20 for a used PS2 or original Xbox, pay more, and you may be paying too much

This had to be just one of many of my favourite adventure games for the N64. Spent many hours playing through these games back in the day, and believe this game had it all - the comedy, the gameplay, the replayability etc. Such a shame to see the direction that the series went on the 360, and really want to see a proper sequel released at some point, although I doubt that will ever happen.

It's a shame to see RARE not concentrating on making brilliant games anymore, with their most recent titles being Kinect titles, which is sh*t. They were one of the best companies back in the day, and really wish they'd start working on updating some of the series that they had back in the day.

Butters: can't agree more. CBFD was amazing, as was the Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tooie, Goldeneye 007, Perfect Dark, Diddy Kong Racing. Man, how can one company come out with so many good games in such a short time?

Anyway, been playing Super Metriod recently. What an amazing game, loving it.

Just watching a video of some guys awesome video game system collection, everything is top notch by the looks of things. Lots of old school systems here. Really impressed with this collection, I don't have a collection myself but if I came into big money I would definitely start one like this as I used to have lots of these when I was a kid.

Saw this posted on FB yesterday, and was instantly jealous of it. That is one hell of an impressive collection, and that's the type of collection I'd love to have when I have a seriously high income of money...just wouldn't be as big as that, unfortunately. sad.gif

Used? Whhhaaat! You're crazy, they sell used games in the bargain bin for $5 OR $10 each.

Saw this thread and cracked out the old Vectrex

Been playing Cosmic Chasm now for 2 hours

What a game - I forgot all about it - Machine and games have been in the loft for about 15 years

Think I might play Amour Attack next - now that was a great game smile.gif

Got about 20 games all in original boxes with screen inlays, all in near perfect condition

Better be gentle with them tounge.gif

Extra credit points for the Vetrex. Man, that was a weird ass unit. +20 bonus points for having the games and overlays.

The Vectrex was a proper gaming system - even my dad when he bought it for me and my brother back in the early 80's loved it - he loved the Asteroids rip off 'Minestorm' - dare I say it, even better than Atari's Asteroids smile.gif
MB games built it and it was ahead of its time - ok it had just Sprite graphics but man, did they do a great job with it
Even have voice on it - anyone remember the game Spike?



start it at about 1:30

DARNIT!

It was killing me...I hate to say this but it was vector based and not really [rasterized] sprite based. Which makes it even cooler to think, since they did such a fine job.

You're a lucky man. I really wanted a Vectrex back in the day. I didn't even have any friends that had one. The closest I got to one was playing a demo model in a store for all but 5 minutes.







I'll go back to trying to stay out of this thread moto_whistle.gif

yep..made mistake..it is vector graphics - clue was in the name biggrin.gif

Had only a couple of friends with one here in the Uk back in the 80's - we used to swap games but to be honest, when MB said they were ending development for it, the games crashed in price - for a while was picking up games for 2 from a place in North London - only reason I would cross the Thames ( I was a South Londoner)

Since I'm in the older age bracket around these parts I try not to participate too much in these threads - or you all would just get sick of me talking about my arcade cabinets and sh*t like that.

Although...I am currently selling out the last of my non-arcade [older] game stuff.

One more day left on my Nintendo Advance SP if anyone is interested.

I'm also going to be unloading two Intellivisions(about 30 games w/overlays and manuals for each) if anyone is interested.

Excuse the MASSIVE bump, but its relevant so I see no harm in doing so.

Anyway, just recently I've been desperate to try and build a Nintendo collection up, all because I keep wanting to play Zelda again. The only problem being the fact that people seem to think a £80 price tag is OK...meaning am struggling to find a decent place to pick these games up. Twilight Princess is going for like £50 wherever I look, and am not wanting to spend that much on a fairly old game. So my question is, has anyone got some decent sites online for buying retro games and consoles?

Again, apologies for the bump...

Damn you just realize how old you really are when people consider PS2 retro.

I guess 14 years since it launched isn't that much, but it feels like longer. I had a commodore 64 long before that but don't remember the games as fondly if I'm honest.

My brother and I bought an XBOX console last year after seeing one advertised online for quite cheap (it also came with four controllers and a box full of games). Now we have all three XBOX consoles: original, 360 and One. 

 

I also have a PS1 (the massive boxy version) somewhere in the garage. Had lots of fun playing that when I was younger.

It's weird how my Xbox 360 broke before my PS1 or even my SNES, both are still in working order but my XBox 360 is garbage.

\retro-

a prefix occurring in loanwords from Latin meaning “backward” ( retrogress  ); on this model, used in theformation of compound words ( retrorocket  ).
 
Retro-gaming.. going backwards.. Anything before current gen. Being that we agree current gen, console-wise, being PS4 and Xbox One. :D
 
@Fireman: Yeah, that's sad. I know a good few people who's PS2's have outlived their 360's and their PS3's.

Surprised the SNES hasn't broken yet tbh, that power pack always went faulty!

That little lunchbox had some amazing games. I got mine hooked up to a little TV in my room with F-Zero GX in it.
