Nice!!! I never saw that version of the SNES before.

I got Ultima V for PC MSDOS for $1 -- originally $70 in 1988.

Both the Japanese and European SNES look similar. Only the American one is different (for those who never saw one here is how the 1991 one looked like:



And the 1997 one:



My best game pickups were

-Secret of Mana back in 2001, because it had the official strategy guide in mint condition and the instruction manual/cartridges in decent condition. It had no box, though.
-F-Zero 1997 re-release (the million seller box), still factory-sealed. I bought it in 2009 and I have yet to open it (I already have another F-Zero copy which is the original and already opened, and according to various factory sealing doc, my copy appears to be legit. If it isn't, then the box is surely in great condition anyway and I got it for kinda cheap).
-Zelda: ALttP in French, which was very rare in North America
-Final Fantasy II and III  (not rare but in such high demand that sometimes they're still quite pricey)
-Dragon Warrior 4 NES
-Sega Dreamcast (those things are so hard to find nowadays here >.<)
-All 4 Star Ocean games. Sadly for the 1st I have the PSP version, not the original, but it's still kinda great.
-All other Final Fantasy RPGs. Even if some are still recent, they get harder and harder to find it seems and the PS1 copies we have are mostly original ones, not the Greatest Hits copies.

NEVER EVER SELL A POPULAR CONSOLE RPG! You'll never be able to find it again later and if you do, you'll usually pay far more for it than you sold your original copy for. I learned this lesson when I sold Star Ocean 2 PS1 and Mario RPG. Even Final Fantasy 13 is hard to find today.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

If Ultima was this expensive in 1988, imagine with inflation how much it would have been today if games didn't decrease in value over time

Also nice to see you around again t0xic_kitt3n

The other one actually came with Super Mario World 2. I only ever saw it at Walmart, though.

ROFLMAO... That is so me! I bought HL2 in 2009. Greatest game ever. I'll call it THE GAME!

My little boy (age 6) loves Super Mario World Wii. He whips my a$$ everytime I play though.

I got my first Gameboy with Pokemon Red two years ago, for 5€ from one of my friends. He said that he didn't want money, he didn't care about his Gameboy because he has a GBA, but I forced him to take at least 5€ :P
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
