Nintendo / PTR Games

A lot of us grew up with some great video games as a kid, be it saving 2D worlds on the Super Nintendo, or taking on three of our friends at once on the Nintendo 64. It's even fun to revisit these games nowadays, but unfortunately they aren't always easily accessible.


Whether your mom cleaned out your closet and sold your games, or you played them so much they stopped working, sometimes you have to go back to square one and get a completely new (used) copy. However, just because the game is old, doesn't mean it's going to be easy to find, or that it'll be cheap if you do find it.

Stadium Events, for example, is worth over $100,000!Nintendo

For anyone looking to add something they miss to their collection, here are 7 tips to make the process as painless as possible!

Do your research and keep a list

Price Charts

Check websites like Video Game Price Charts to get an idea of what the average price of what you're looking for is. It will help you spot a good deal or determine if something's a ripoff. Also, make sure to write down what you're looking for and what you have, so the two don't get mixed up.

Set a realistic budget


Just because a game tends to go for a particular price, doesn't mean you have to be willing to pay that! Decide what it's worth to you and see what you can find it for.

Know how to check what condition it's in


Some online sellers go out of their way to hide info about a game's condition. If you want one that has the box, manual, and any goodies that came with the game originally, read the item's description very carefully.

Growing up, we didn't really have the same advanced video game as kids today have. We had to use our imaginations. Sure, looking back it was a little bit less than impressive, but honestly, we had more fun playing those simple games than almost any of these extremely complicated ones. Oregon Trail is perhaps one of the most notorious and iconic games that we played during computer class. It seemed to be loaded up onto every school computer, so that we could learn all about traveling on the frontier, including the struggles that came with it. Sure, about 90% of


There's Going To Be A 'Ghostbusters' Version Of Pokemon Go And We Know Who We're Gonna Call

Watching Ghostbusters as a kid basically meant that we all believed in ghosts to some extent. Sure, we knew Slimer wasn't going to come around the corner because Spengler had him under control, but also, what if he did? We weren't about to get caught off guard, so we spent all our free time rewatching the movie, catching up on the cartoon, and playing with every Ghostbusters-themed toy we could find to make sure our ghost catching skills were up to snuff. Personally, I know that I had countless dreams where I would be chasing the ghosts around my neighborhood


'Murphy Brown' Revival Reveals Who They've Cast As Her Son But We're Still A Little Nervous

It was just a couple of months ago that we all got both excited and a little nervous for the Murphy Brown reboot. Sure, we loved the show when it originally aired, but as a rule, reboots are never as good as we want them to be. The show was unlike any others of its time.
