More Games From People At Work!

This lot of games was arranged quite a while ago, and the guy I got them from finally brought them to work with him.

The game lot included three consoles. A Playstation, a SNES, and a NES. He forgot the SNES, but will be getting it to me next time I see him. All the games he had for the consoles were included in this game lot. I am not going to bother posting pics of the consoles. Everyone know what they look like (I hope) by now.

Now, let’s get to the games, shall we? We’ll start off with the NES games. I have tested the NES games, and they all work perfectly. Here they are in no particular order.

First up is Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt. It looks to be in good condition.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A classic game. I used to play this a lot when I was a kid. It’s in good shape as well.

Sky Wolf is a game I have never played.

Super Mario Bros. 2 is a great game. Usually hard to find a good copy of the game, so I am glad that this one is in good shape.

Now for the Playstation games that I received.

Final Fantasy VII, VIII, and IX. Everyone who reads this may have heard of them. I already had all of the, but I only had a greatest hits copy of VII. All of them came in pretty good shape. Some minor scratches and smudges on the discs and small skuffs on the cases. Otherwise, they are just fine. I sold FF IX to Laynix.

The Legend of Dragoon is a game I meant to get when it came out, but never purchased it. I don’t know why. I may have to find time to play this game. It had a price sticker on it, but other than that the game is perfect.

Metal Gear Solid is a game I used to have and I sold it. I am an idiot. I regret it, and now I have another copy. Too bad this copy doesn’t work. The discs are in rough shape. I will have to get it resurfaced.

I was supposed to get a copy of Final Fantasy Tactics in the original casing as well, but he forgot it too. I will be replacing my greatest hits copy with it, when I finally get it.

Moving on, let’s take a look at the SNES games. I have tested all of these games now, and they all work just fine after a good cleaning.

Star Fox came in decent shape. I already have it and sold it to Laynix’s cousin.

Maximum Carnage came in good shape as well. I, again, have already sold it to Laynix’s cousin.

Donkey Kong Country 1-3 are in good shape, for the most part. There was a sticker on DKC 1 and the PCB in DKC 3 is a tiny bit loose. I will have to open and clean it when I get a new bit.

NHL Stanley Cup and NCAA Basketball are two games I have had before and got rid of. Sports games don’t usually hold any sort of value to me at all. There is always another one each year. Bah. Not even posting pictures for them.

Earthworm Jim 2 is a game I had when I was a kid. I loved the Earthworm Jim games, so I was pleased to see this game in this lot. It’s in good shape.

Mega Man X is a game I never had before. Mega Man games have a reputation for being difficult, so I will have to see.

Stunt Race FX is a game I used to play a lot of as well. I am happy to see it in here, and I will likely hate it now that I am older.

F-Zero is a pretty popular game franchise. I never got into it much, as my first experience with this type of game was mainly with the WipEout games.

Drakkhen is a game I know nothing about. I am guessing there are dragons in it?

Pilotwings will likely be good. I have never played it for the SNES, but I did for the N64. It was enjoyable.

Killer Instinct I already own. It’s a great fighter. Will be selling this.

Castlevania IV I have never played, but I liked the first two games, and the DS games. I’ll likely enjoy it.

Act Raiser 2 is a game I had never heard of before. I will have to try it out. Not sure what it’s about.

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest I haven’t played before. I don’t think it was one of the popular FF titles.

Final Fantasy III is a game I’ve wanted for a while. This copy’s label is bubbled up slightly, but oh well. At least I can play it.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is pretty popular. I am sure anyone reading this knows what this game is and how good it is. It’s in okay shape, but the label is peeling up a tiny bit on the front of the cartridge. Bah!

Finally, Secret of Mana is a game I never played, but it’s apparently a great RPG. I have heard a bit about it, and plan to play it. It’s in decent shape, other than the sticker on the back is partially ripped off. Oh well.

This was a pretty good haul of games, and adds quite a bit to my lacking SNES collection. I am fairly satisfied. Getting MGS resurfaced will give me an excuse to go to Scotty’s in Walkerton again. We’ll have to see what kind of deals he’ll have when I go up there. I will likely cave and buy games. I am weak.

Updated: All of the photos, as you can see, are finally posted.
