    As far as collections go, Ebay, estarland and videogamecentral are the best bets. I could say Amazon as well but some items won't always be available unlike Ebay.

    Though I honestly don't think that anyone can afford the original Shantae game for the GBC.

    Welcome and we'll surely try! i went through a phase of trying to catch up on games that i missed. This can get pretty expensive quickly though. Gamestop is always a decent place to look of course, but do you live by any flea markets or Goodwill's? A lot of time in these flea markets you can bargain or get lucky and people don't know what they have.

    @Heigw indeed: I spent so much money tracking down these older games i missed, plus a gameboy. Then the whole VC thing comes around. Now these NES/SNES classic deals, no thanks. Im good

    @dustinb12 Yeah, It's always better to have the actual cartridge (they are so nice :) ) but I like money, so I just try and keep as much as I can of it xD
