Default new (sorta) toys...

Well, I have been on the search lately for some new fun activities and it brought me back to a time when things were simple. So with many trips to Salvation Army, I collected most of the parts I needed for under $15, except for one integral part: The power cable. So today, when correcting from a wrong turn, I was driving down a side street and was getting pissed at this person parked in the road blocking my lane looking at a yard sale. Just as i was about to honk, I saw it, went up and looked at the price and purchased it. What is it?











I purchased one nintendo in original box, with most of the Items still in the original wrappers, 3 games and one of the advantage controllers for the $10. That'* a big score in my book. (if you look closely at the right advantage controller, you can see the joy stick is bent. That happened when i ran it and the 4 score over with the car )

I have kinda started collecting old video game systems for fun. I have these two nintendos, 2 sega genisis and one 32 bit adapter, and 2 atari 2600'*. looking for a newer style NES and a Super NES now as well, but only if I can get them dirt cheap. In total, I have about $50 in all of the systems.

Just figured I'd share since i was excited.

Haha, that is old school. Good memories when I see a system like that-I used to be a lil gamer in my younger age.
