Looking to avoid going to ebay, and also avoid bootlegs, so I'm asking here. Many of you have some of these games in your collection, but you're probably not playing them so sell them to me and buy something you really want grin. Also willing to trade if money isn't your thing.

Here are some of the games I'm looking for and the price I'm looking to pay (they go for slightly more on average on eBay, but then you have to deal with fees and random buyers). Feel free to ask a higher price if you don't like my offer. Or a lower price if you think I'm a super swell guy and want to do me a favor.

Bomberman Land Touch ($25 shipped)
Bomberman Land Touch 2 ($35 shipped)
Contra 4 ($30 $35 shipped)
Cookie & Cream ($15 $20 shipped)
Dig Dug Digging Strike ($15 $25 shipped)
Dragon Ball Origins 2 ($40 $45 shipped)
Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts ($20 $25 shipped)
Freedom Wings ($18 $22 shipped)
Konami Classics Series: Arcade Hits ($35 shipped)
Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals ($45 shipped)
Moon ($40 $45 shipped)
Nanostray 2 ($35 shipped) pending in
Time Hollow ($40 $45 shipped)
Tokyo Beat Down ($40 $45 shipped)
Trackmania DS ($15 shipped)
Trackmania Turbo: Build to Race ($20 shipped)
Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble ($28 $32 shipped)

I'll add more when I think of them, but this is a good starting list.

Edit: looking for complete (case/manual/cart) games only. Other inserts like reg card or club nintendo insert or health and safety warnings are nice, but not a dealbreaker if you don' have them.

Pictures may be required as well if you're not 100% certain it isn't a bootleg.

Tingle's Balloon Fight -- if you're going to get this Japanese game, you might as well get the other Tingle games (unless you already have them). evil

Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland (PAL & English)
Tingle's Balloon Trip of Love (JP & Japanese)

Rosy Rupeeland is awful. I used to have the UK release and sold it off. Balloon Trip of Love is too Japanese-heavy for me. I like Balloon Fight, so a 4 player DS version sounds great, even if you have to be Tingle.

Good games are much easier to know in retrospect. With the ds developers mostly transitioned to 3DS by late 2012, people have had almost 10 years to look back and really sift out what's good to play and what's just a good candidate to bin the game and repurpose the case.

And other than the masochists or people wanting complete collections, most folks go back for the good games (or the nostalgia bombs for games that aren't as good) rather than stuff like Ubisoft's "Imagine" line...

If anyone has all 20 THIRTY-NINE of the Imagine DS games that are in the GameTZ database, post a pic of yourself with the games and I'll send you a year two years of subtime to help cover your shame.

Oddly enough Trace Memory was one of my first DS games. Good crap.

Dragon Quest IX is criminally underrated in that series.

Lately I've been playing a lot of Dreamcast and PS1 but DS has to be up there for my play time as well overall.

I've added the other 19 Imagine series DS games to the GameTZ database (they are not games I want, but I wanted to see how many there are).

So there's almost 40 of them on the DS alone, not to mention Wii and 3ds.

You're welcome

I have DQ9 already, although admittedly I do not have a lot of time for RPGs right now (which is why there aren't many in my wanted list above). I've also discovered as the years pass that I don't like playing them as much as I like the idea of them.

Nowadays, I find myself preferring action RPGs (or action games with RPG trimmings) to the old school turn based ones. Brave Fencer Musashi on PS1 may be my favorite of the action RPG crowd. Or Morrowind. Both are good for different reasons.

I've been enjoying shorter jrpgs on the PS1. Stuff that is like 30-40 hours. I am not sure when the craze of the longer the better started, maybe it was PS2 era. DQ games are definitely meaty, I haven't played through one in years at this point.

I think it's from the same studio that made the Hotel Dusk games. Just doesn't have the stylish black and white hand drawn character art.

Even 40 hours is long for me nowadays. 20 is about my sweet spot for an RPG length.

Thanks. Laat time I looked it was all third party sellers and this is a game that is bootlegged fairly often. But it says sold and shipped by Amazon now. Here's hoping Amazon themselves at least won't ship a bootleg.

I bought a copy from Amazon but that was many years ago. It was a pretty decent game.

It's one of those gaming curiosities that you might not believe if someone were just telling you about it....

"Yeah, so there's a Wizard of Oz game on DS. It's not what you think, it's an anime-style JRPG made by the guys who did the Wild Arms series, and most of the Valkyria Chronicles games."

I wouldn't believe it myself it if weren't for the videos LOL

Media.Vision love

This company is coming up in conversations a second time for me this month, as we were discussing Gunner's Heaven. I didn't know they developed Valkyria Chronicles 4 and now Wizards of OZ. Kinda just glossed over it when I looked at their resume on Wiki

Bump. Have gotten a bunch, but there are still some stragglers. I've raised most of the prices I'm willing to pay since the field is narrowing.

Will probably be adding additional games soon, too.

Edit: added the Bomberman Land games

Shows out of stock for me frown

Also with bootlegs being so rampant on the DS, I'm pretty iffy on buying anything that's still sealed at this point.
