Question of the week
Got a good question for everyone…what’s your biggest pet peeve about buying retro games?? (Other than the price!!!)
Mine has to be the placement of pricing stickers. They can be placed on the cartridge artwork, over another sticker on a case, not even be a sticker but a marker, and it just drives me up the wall. I will pick up some retro stuff and when I get home the first thing I do is break out a razer blade and the alcohol and go to cleaning.
if I can’t trust a store to authenticate their product, don’t gripe at ME for wanting to authenticate it before I buy.
I’ve straight up brought a triwing with me into a shop before to ask if I could authenticate a cart before buying. If you’re confident that you’re selling authentic games, what’s the problem?
It’s not a huge thing in the grand scheme of things but my pet peeve is buying a game or system online and receiving it really dusty/dirty. Like, can’t you at least drag a cloth across it to remove a little dust?!?Eric Plunk —
Outdated prices on games that they look prices up on once they’re brought up to the register. Nothing will make me walk out faster.InfiniteBlue —
I used to spend summer Saturdays biking to garage sales around my city to look for games, but in the last 4-5 years it's gotten insane with resellers, craigslist hawks, and ravenous collectors buying up anything worthwhile literally as soon as they open.
