here is one you dont see sealed everyday (but i think people just reseal them) I'm sure there are plenty of dealers taking advantage of the retro market by resealing old titles, but in the instance of the 93-97 era stuff there must be unimaginable quantities of product locked away in warehouses and...

Agree on the N64 -- complete games with box & manual are impossible to find. I'm collecting Sega Master System right now ... Only has 114 official North America release games, and at least 80% of them you can buy for about $1.00. Most of the "rare" games sell in the $4.00 - $6.00 range. Because the ...

I'm laying out my basement game room/rec room and looking at a TV purchase here soon, and I'm mostly curious whether I'll be shooting myself in the foot if I get a modern high end TV set.
