    The seller wanted $390 for everything, but I acted like my name was Kitsune Sniper and talked him down to $150. Is that a good deal? Better yet, did I atleast break even based on how much I spent and how much this stuff is worth?

    Are you serious? Considering you can get about $100 for chrono trigger complete I would say you definately did fine

    Jesus Christ, you made me laugh out loud at that XD

    You bastich, you killed him and raped the corpse. $390 was a great price! That 3DO binder is worth what, $100 alone?

    Obviously the person didn't care much about what they had and just needed to get rid of it for either space or a few bucks. I would have quite a few duplicates from picking up that lot so selling off those would help ease the expense.

    That's a hell of a deal. I need to get something like that around my area. Problem is everyone on my local craigslist thinks there consoles and games ar egold plated. Everyone talks about how rare their nes is and how no one has them anymore. Later that day you'll see another posting for the same thing by a different person. With my luck, I'd go pick it up and it would end up being someone trying to kidnap me and hold me for ransom.

    Good find.

    I'm not bragging. In case you haven't noticed, atleast 25% of the games are worthless sports and disney/kiddie crap. Plus, only one of the consoles is complete--the rest are missing controllers and hook-ups. I'm sure that all subtracts from the price atleast alittle bit.

    My craig's list is the same way. Only once in a leap year do you find a really good deal. It's usually the same old shit thats way overpriced. Just how many rare Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt carts must one list before realizing it ain't worth jack shit?

    Did Chrono Trigger have both of the maps with it?

    Shining in the Darkness is a great game if you've never played it before, my favorite dungeon crawler of all time.

    Nice find. I wish craiglists at my area would show up more game deals. Instead I have to end up with overpriced seller who refuse to drop their price.

    I glanced in it to see that it had atleast two booklets in it, but when I get home I'll check to see if it has any other ones. Because honestly I thought it was only suppose to come with an instruction booklet like most other games.
