You can now buy Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Sega Genesis, Playstation 1, and Dreamcast consoles and games at Gamestop. You can only buy them online and not in-store. The prices are about the same as Ebay (some are higher and some are lower). I collect retro games but I like to find mine at yard sales and flea markets.

I don't have much luck at flea markets anymore. Now they just look up the prices on Ebay, so finding the hidden treasures happens a lot less frequently for me, than it use to. I found a black label FFVII and bought it for $10 a couple years ago at that giant flea market in Pendergrass, but that's the only luck I've had since about 2005.

Getting a dreamcast so I can play ready to rumble. Flat screen TV does those graphics no justice though

Dreamcast has a VGA adapter that turns the signal from 480p to 480i. Or you can use S-Video which looks good too. Don't use composite cables on a flat screenemot-barf.gif

Every seller at the flea market has a smartphone today and they check prices on ebay. And some sellers go around early in the morning before the flea market starts to buy all the cheap games just to mark them up. Your best bet is yard sales. You can find them on Craigslist. And sometimes , but rarely, you can find games at the Goodwill.

Check your tv and see. I bought an S-Video cable for my Super Nintendo about 2 months ago on Ebay for $2.99 w/ free shipping. I got a Samsung plasma in my man cave that has every video input. I got it in 2008 though.

You can get the VGA cable on Ebay for $12.99 w/ free shipping.from China but it will take 2 weeks to get it. Or you can get one inside the U.S. for $17.99 and you'll have it in a week.

sweet. **** before I spend money at gamestop I'm gonna talk to my father in law. He has all of the old systems. I know I saw a dreamcast on the TV Stand last time we went over
