Who Woulden't Pay $31 For an Old Budget RPG?


It’s a well-known fact that Gamestop’s prices on games are usually generally more than what you would pay at EBGames. But this is ridiculous. ‘Eternal Eyes’, the game that was released as a budget RPG in October 2000 (for $9.99), is going for $30.99 used on Gamestop.com! Now I’ve heard of overpricing, but wow…. This is ridiciolous! What makes it even worse is that when this game frequently pops up used on EBGames.com, it goes for a mere ninety-nine cents!

Click here the check out Gamestop’s shameful pricing for an old game, if you must!

This really pisses me off. When I had my first Dreamcast I had Project Justice (Rival Schools 2) and didnt think much of it. Now I dont have it anymore it goes for massive ammounts (£50+) on eBay. Same went for Aliens V Predator on the Jag. I swapped it for Sensible Soccer and then it becomes stupidly collectible. DOH.

The funny thing is, this game is not collectible at all. Its 99 cents at EBGames and under $2 everywhere else.

And thats what you get for swapping a game for something called 'Sensible Soccer' ;-)

As for Project Justice, I dont think I'm ever going to find a copy of that game. And once I had a chance to pick up Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves for DC for $25, but I bought Street Fighter Alpha 3 instead. Sure, SFA3 is great and all, but I could have bought it later in the future. Even if I didnt like Fatal Fury I could have always sold it for a higher amount.

Sensible Soccer is widely regarded as the best footy game you can get (or it was in 1995!). It's been overshadowed now though by the all conquering Pro Evolution Soccer series. Even Fifa can't stand up to it's might. Project Justice wasnt even that good - it reminded me of GASP Fighters Nextreme on the N64 (is that the worst game title ever?!). I think it might have been called sommat else in America, as is usually the case. Like Tennis 2k2...It's Virtua Tennis 2!!! lol

The funny thing is that Tennis 2K2 on DC was called Virtua Tennis 2 in American arcades. I remember playing it with my friend in the arcade, and then the arcade owner would come out of nowhere, put in a token and kick both of our asses at it. Good times.

I just can't fathom a tennis video game. It's comes in just above fishing and hunting on the "Too Lazy To Actually Do The Sport That Is In This Game" list. And, it topped the "This Was Supposed To Just Be A Joke But Now It's A Real Game" list.

But Virtua Tennis is AWESOME! It's not a case of being lazy...it's a case of 'what shall we do? we're all drunk and now all the pubs are shut...I know...Virtua Tennis!!" Do you see?

I play tennis in real life and in Virtua Tennis. I also enjoyed Mario Tennins on the Nintendo 64. Not only were the graphics amazing for N64, but the gameplay was top-notch. Overall any of the Virtua Tennis games and Mario Tennis are two of the finest ever.

Tom-

No, I don't see. LOL. Sorry. That situation should ALWAYS be remedied by:

A. Guitar Hero

or

B. Super Smash Bros. Melee

End o' story. ;)

Bleh, game stores all overprice used games. It's annoying.
