Alundra (with map)
Alundra 2
Darkstone
Darkstalkers 3
Final Fantasy Origins
Inuyahsa
Legend of Legaia
Legend of Lagoon (Green label)
Medieval II
Metal Gear Solid
Parasite Eve
Xenogears

It has been a long time since I found anything decent at the thrift stores - a couple of years ago I did find a copy of Brigandine - some wear on the paperwork but it did have the map with it.

There was one more that was in a box by itself (the case was really trashed so I didn't want the components bouncing around in the bag). Dragon Warrior VII.

Wait, you passed on DQVII? Were the disc ok?

No joke Joe! I don't "game hunt" much these but more due to a lack of time versus being discouraged. I always enjoyed finding even a $5 I wanted to try.

No - I got it - but I had a cigar box I had just bought in another store and put the DQVII in it so the discs wouldn't bounce around in the bag. When I made the list up I forgot it was there.

( A handy hint - you can usually get the same multi disc jewel cases for the PS1s that use them by looking in the audio books (not the regular cds - the thrift stores around here generally have a separate section). I picked one up for the DQVII and swapped it out. ) I have to replace some of the others also since a few are pretty scuffed up.

Good. Despite being hypocritical to an extent, there are better ways to spend your time than hunting games. But yes, if you do it long enough, you'll get discouraged quickly if you have high expectations.

If I was just looking for video games I would have quit long ago - but I collect a whole lot of different things so I usually find something. Even if I don't I enjoy getting out by myself and looking. Finding something good like this lot is just a bonus.
