    Default Has anyone tried those monthly mystery boxes?

    Cant remember the name of it. Retro treasure or something. Its like 30 a month and theres a picture of Goldeneye, Mario, other hi dollar titles popping out of the box in the ad

    is it all basically just copies of Madden '94 and Silent Services?

    For me, there's absolutely no point other than spending $30 to get games that aren't worth $20 for systems I don't collect for. I don't care about Nintendo consoles or handhelds, which would be the majority of what would come in. My collecting nerdidity (my nerdiliciousness, if you will) tends to be pre-NES era and offbeat, underdog systems. Companies that offer mystery boxes like those tend to go for mass market appeal, which means Nintendo. Which means I'm out.

    Honestly, if I want to play an oddball or rare game I'll just play it in emulation. Since good emulation has come along, I don't really feel the need for these kinds of things. Just more junk that'll sit in a Rubbermaid storage tub covered in dust.
