[Read more…] Goes Retro Gaming

It doesn’t matter if you’re a hardcore or a causal gamer while growing up as a kid but somehow and someway we’ve bought many video game systems over our lifetimes.  I have probably spent over a couple thousand dollars buying and collecting video games for the Sega Saturn alone.  I had everything for the Sega Saturn – I had the US console and also the Japanese “white” edition.  I had the official Sega light guns for Virtua Cop, the 4MB RAM cart for those classic Capcom, and even SNK 2D fighters and shooters.  Plus, I had this crazy cool fighting game – Groove on Fight.  And I had the 3D analog controller for Nights and Burning Rangers.  As you can tell by now I was a Sega fanboy.

I was going through my attic and found that I still had several gaming systems, like the Atari 7800, Sega CDX and Sega Dreamcast.  I still have the sticker price on the Atari 7800 box.  Guess how much Kaybee Toys was selling this system?  $79.00 USD!  Now, after I removed all the cob webs and dusted off the systems, I wanted to get the games I couldn’t get as a kid.  Yes, you can go to eBay or Craigslist to find some old games, but where’s a site that’s more accessible and secure to buy old games now?  Just recently, about 2 weeks ago, opened a brand new store front called the “Retro Gaming Store.”  So now you can buy old video games and gaming systems, and yes, I know Panzer Dragoon RPG for the Saturn is still an expensive game to buy on here, but you can find some other games and systems at reasonable prices.  It’s all about shopping around.  I am glad that Amazon wants to open a Retro Gaming Store, because I don’t really care to shop at Gamestop.
