@Shawn KOF 98 and 02, Last Blade 2 and Guilty Gear X. The god tier. You already have Garou and 3rd Strike which are also great. For the 2nd tier I'd say CvS 2 and MvC 2. Everything else is below that to me. I don't even know how many hours I have in these. I basically only play fighters on DC or online w/ fightcade.

And that's a good deal my brain just always tries for max value on these kind of things. Honestly stores that use pricecharting or eBay solds at all instead of inflating beyond that can be hard to find these days.

Yeah, it is nice when you can find one. One local shop (part of the same chain) will actually price match with gamevaluenow (but I often find games list for much lower than gamevalue now.. probably because they are behind on updating prices or made a mistake). I actually snagged R-type Delta for 30, Mr Mosquito for 18 recently :D

Another local shop, however, is just a joke... I think it's a guy with lots of money that runs the store as a passion project because there's no way it's financially soluble. Their prices are often 2-3x price charting.. the last time I went there ( a long time ago now) I pointed out to one of the employees that $30.00 for an NES Ninja Gaiden cart is too expensive.. and he told me I was flat out wrong and then was condescending to me when I showed him pricecharting averages and some ebay sold listing lol. He then shifted gears and started talking to me about the advantages of buying from them ("you can't return on eBay" lol) and I told him that I'm honestly not too worried about returning cartridge games because in my experience they are built like tanks and hardly every have issues, even after being heavily abused. I didn't change his mind. Ok, rant session over. :P

@Gypsy would you recommend KOF 98 OR 02... or both for different reasons?

There was an old store here that went oob and what they would do is as long as they had something older in stock the price would not be checked or change. This led to some CRAZY deals like Lunar EBC for $20.

One store I only go to now when they have sales. Last time I did pretty damn good which included a minty Lunar EBC for $65 (then B2G1 was involved too). They also have a B1G1 coupon that has a value cap (that keeps lowering...) and it's at the point now where I just grab two used Criterion releases for myself when they have that available in most cases.

Lol this was amazing at multiple points thanks for sharing. I've been in stores like that (ie pricing sub $10 commons at $25-40) I assume they are attempting to prey on people that don't know any better and are feeling nostalgic. Definitely crapty.

Both are fantastic but play quite differently.

What do you mean the winner? Do we have winners? Did I miss it? Does Onmimusha get to pick?

Yea, you've been in the MMORPG pits.

@WithinTemptation gets the pick because her nomination Onimusha won last month.

That's the going plan. So going forward, we just need to nominate every other month.

So, for clarity, does that mean she gets to pick whatever, or pick from nominations ... or some combination of the two.

It sounded like the only reason it didn't tie with Onimusha was because a certain dingus who runs the joint didn't vote.
