So I Missed the School Bus Today...

I was turning something in for the end of the quarter for school, so I ran to the other side of my school to turn it in. By the time I got outside, my bus had gone 5 minutes earlier. I borrowed my friend's phone, and I called my mom to pick me up at the local library. She said she would pick me up after she finished work, which was like 2 hours from then.
Because I had 2 whole hours and money in my backpack, I decided to go to my local GameCrazy store to get a Gamecube Memory Card (To play Paper Mario 2). Unfortunately, they didn't have it. I decided to look for something else to buy, since I was there anyways. I looked in the SNES retro area (Which, by the way, has a crap-load of bad games, 99.9% Football). Because of the bad games they have in that section, they made it as cheap as $0.25 a game. So.. I looked in there, and 2 games caught my attention. Surprisingly, they were on the top. I wonder how nobody bothered to buy them..? Anyway, here are some images on what I got at the game store. I was SO happy when I walked out. :D



(I bought other games, but.. the total reads $3.14)



2 Super Mario World games, both $0.25 (I got Toy Story and a Football game along with them.)



Aaaaaand... both of the games. Super Mario Worlds, versions SNS-MW-USA and SNS-MW-USA-1!!

Tag (span) was not closed.
So that's why one of my SMW carts has the word Super over the rest.

Nice find. o.o

This is a thing that's happening, now. Achievements in old video games.
Thank you for the layout, Erik557.

If not for respect, but dramatic effect, take on the face of Guy Fawkes.
Nice find. I know that in Canada, it is near impossible to find a store around here which carries anything older than Gameboy Advance. (I mean, we have Microplays, but they are so few and far between now, mixed with the fact that they 'upgraded').

...each time I see a thread like this, it makes me regret selling my old SNES for a mere $0ish dollars. :(
I never sold any of my SNES games and probably won't for awhile. For now, their just sitting in my basement next to the SNES and Nintendo 64 gathering dust...

I once sold my father's old Atari Handheld games (with his consent, of course) to a local Game Stop, and I remember that 5 games gave me enough to buy FF9 and FF Tactics o.O

I can never find anything like that either!
I had to order Paper Mario (N64) off E-Bay.

But it was SO worth it.

im suprised that you got it so cheap, i thought stuff like that was considered rare and therefore valuable as a collectors item!? Still nice find though :)

That must suck. My local mall has a used store, and they sell everything all the from the NES-PS3. It's pure awesome.

This makes me jealous that the closest GameCrazy to me closed :(

My cartridge of Super Mario World is different. My cartridge has the shape of the left cartridge from the image, but the sticker of the right cartridge. My sticker reads SNS-MW-USA-1.

Across my entire collection of Super NES cartridges, only three cartridges have the left shape. All other cartridges have the right shape.

As shadow yoshi said, in a few years time those will become antiques.

I also live in Canada and I find pawn shops with old games in them.
