I'll let ya know how it goes; Bean has first right of refusal. Pics of the box are at https://imgur.com/a/nye9I , though there are a few small white spots that don't really come across in the pics.

I suppose in a way it's good to know I'm not the only person who's considered that action...

Oh, and @Gypsy , I would be interested in a few of those games,but as you can see, I currently have an outstanding debt to @Lunar ...

Metroids, eh? Okay:

1. Super Metroid
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
2. Metroid (NES)
3. Metroid 2
.
.
.
.
.
4 (tie). Metroid Fusion
4 (tie). Metroid Zero Mission
6. Metroid Prime Pinball
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
7. Most of the rest
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
99. Metroid Other M

Other M is, frankly, an assault to Samus as a character, and needing approval to use abilities? Really?? Team Ninja sure didn't do the game any favors, either. (RIP Fire Emblem Warriors.). Super Metroid, though, is the only one that I enjoy going through again when I get the urge.

Stanard procedure for most merchants is that they check to ensure the card is good at order placing, which may result in a temp hold; this is what you see. It will fall off after a few days.

Upon release, things vary a bit more. Best Buy will bill you once it is ready for pickup; if you don't pick it up in a few days, they'll add it to store stock, and not confirm the charge again, resulting in it falling off like the initial charge. (If the window passes, they may have to issue a refund instead.) Gamestop may give you the option to pay in store at pickup. Amazon always bills when it ships.

Topic   Top 5 video game series

Hmm... I'm having a hard time even getting to 5. There aren't many series that make me drop everything, but the ones that do are:

1. Persona. Ever since I started up on this, I eagerly wait for the next game. It pains me that I can't play P5 as much as I want to. I will drop everything for the next new one.
2. Dragon Quest (mainline only). DQ holds a special spot in my heart. It was my first RPG, and it keeps the nostalgia in the newer games, knowing it doesn't have to reinvent the wheel. Spinoffs, like Swords, Heroes, etc, are bought, but go to the backlog.
3. Danganronpa. I really can't explain this one. The first one was so addictive I couldn't stop! The second one wasn't as good, but I eagerly await for the 3rd one to come from NIS. If 3 also disappoints, it will be removed from this list.
4. Etrian Odyssey. I still think this is one of the best uses of the touch screen to date. And the character customization options are wonderful. I still eagerly buy new ones, even though I do think the series has a critical flaw. (Post-game content requires you to have a specific party with only certain skills maxed out.)
5. 2D Castlevania. Okay, it did take a while for SotN to grow on me. (What do you mean I need an item for candles to give me hearts?) But I came around, and fell in love with them. It also ramped up around the same time that Metroid was losing its charm (see below), so it became a natural replacement. Shame that I don't see us getting any more...

Of note, for all these, only the first release of a game gets this treatment. Even P4G fell to the wayside, despite my love of P4. I don't have the time to essentially replay a game again.

A few other series used to be on this list, but after some disappointments, have been removed. Those are:

1. Fire Emblem. The GBA, GC, and Wii games were all excellent. But then grinding became a thing. Online competing became a thing. And my interest was waning pretty sharply. None of the games have had the same magic since Radiant Dawn. I still buy them, but I'll get to them when I get time.
2. Final Fantasy. In the SNES days, this was my favorite series, hands down. But the move to Sony and needing to make things look pretty killed the series to me. The system also kept getting fixed, whether it was broken or not. By the time I got to FFX, I was done. I seriously tried to start X twice, and quit both times from being bored.
3. Zelda. The first few were great. So many secrets, and the joys of being lost as a kid. (I actually had to eventually ask Nintendo where dungeons 8 and 9 were in the second quest.) But this game did not transition to 3D for me. OoT was such a letdown for me that I didn't even bother with Majora's Mask. More games like Link Between Worlds may get me back...
4. Metroid. Another game similar to Zelda. The move to 3D resulted in a more empty-feeling game, and invoked the issue I have with FPS games. Secrets seemed to be much less hidden and less prevalent. While the game went back to 2D much sooner, the magic was gone. Everything felt too linear at that point. Making matters worse was the Super Metroid skin, reminding me how much I could wander in the older games...

I have Batman & Robin, Duke Nukem 3D, Indy 500, Lights Out, and Lost World. Should I worry about you asking for this list?

Vita games I buy. Due to severe space constraints, I can't keep everything I want cased. I buy several of those little plastic holders that hold multiple games, file the caseart, and sell the cases.

Who knows? I got side tracked with trying to play P5 some more. 3rd palace is closed out, and I'm working on more requests in Mementos. Only 40 hours in thus far...

And a side note, I'm shocked at what people are paying for my replacement Vita cases. I sell sets of 5 on Amazon used for $6.79 + $3.99 shipping, and I move 1-2 sets a week!

No time to check for stuff now, I should be in bed already. But I may be interested if that WC3 shows up again...

Like Gypsy, though, I'm really trying to scale back a bit and get things back in check. The stacks of games in my room are getting scary...
