    Thrift stores are incredibly great for finding little deals.

    I collect games and I frequent about 4 or 5 thrift stores every couple of days. I have found so many little gems (usually marked really low compared to ebay prices). Just in the past couple of weeks I got Tony Hawk 3 and 4, Metroid Prime, Luigis Mansion, Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2, and a few obscure PSP games for around 20 dollars total. I love thrift stores, especially the small business ones that aren't a big chain.

    "I probably should have washed this, it smells like R. Kelly's sheets." Classic!

    And yeah while I would love to financially support the artists and creators directly, I've been a bargain bin scavenger since I walked into my first used record store in the late 60s. When you can go into a second hand shop and come out with ten or twelve used treasures for the price of one new one, its just no contest.

    "People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos...
    That some sort of culture of violence will take them over.
    Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands - literally, thousands of songs
    About heartbreak, rejection...pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music
    Because I was miserable... or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?"

    There are these stores here in the NW called Big Lots, I remember when you could find disk copies of CoV/CoH for like $6 when the game on Amazon was $30. Of course the game was dying so stores had liquidated all their copies which is why Big Lots had them. But they had shelves of older titles like original Roller Coaster Tycoon which at the time weren't in stores at all.

    Hah, damn my friend  $2? You got that for a steal. I pop in my local thrift shop occasionally to see what I  can find, but they never have any games. Not even one!
