A while back ago my mom thaught it would be a fantastic idea to write my name on the back of my SNES games to makes sure that the people that stole them knew who they were stealing from.>:( It is what appears to be sharpie marker. Any suggestions on what I can do to get it off with minimal damage to the casing?

I'm squeezin' that bird but it's not doing anything for me, frankly.

As for the marker, I use mineral spirits and a toothbrush, but a citrus-based product called GooGone is something you can buy at department stores and usually works for things of this nature.. naturally you'll wanna be careful around the labels and such.

Having had 'friends' steal things from me countless times as a kid, you should be grateful. That writing probably saved your butt more than once.

I generally use isoproply alcohol to get the majority of the ink off, then use Goo Gone on the really tough, ground-in residue.

If those two liquids don't work well enough for you, and there's still enough ink it's driving you nuts, pour the rest of the cleaners into your eyes and you won't have to worry about seeing it anymore. X_x
