Yes. Very Good condition. Have the cartridge and case (I don't believe it came with a manual).

Send an offer if you're interested, but if not, let me know. There are 3 other users in line wanting it also.

If only you had been looking for Arms... All those negs would probably be pluses.

Glad you found what you were after!

If I had to guess, I'd say it's because your original post basically says "I want this game, but don't want to pay what it's actually worth", to which people negged. Then someone came along and sold it to you at basically half price, which gives undue justification for people to make posts asking for things cheap.

That's just my assessment.

Also people who hit neg have terribly tiny penises. This is just how they cope with this unfair world. Don't take it personally, it's them not you. Unless it's you, in which case knock it the fudge off

I didn't pay full price for it. So "half price" is relative.

Honestly, even at $20 I don't think it's worth it, but others clearly do. There were several sold listings on eBay in the 25-30 range, so I figured 20+ shipping was a reasonable asking price. Apparently it was a great asking price because I had 3 other users send messages or offers for it as well.

But I got right around what I would have gotten by trading it in to gamestop and I'm helping a gtzer out, so everyone wins.

Even the neggers. The more active gametz is, the better off we all are.

"half value" I guess is more appropriate wording. You're exactly right though, you had 3 other people hit you up because it's a low price. The cheapest price right now is $37 on eBay.

No one was knocking you for selling it cheap.

In another year, they'll all be $20 on eBay.

There was another topic where I commented about how it's all in the wording. If he just said "Looking for a copy" instead of "Looking for a copy but don't want to pay and arm and leg", there is probably no negging.

Personally, I feel people should be able to ask for things cheap.

The folks who have stuff are allowed to post something and say things like "no lowball offers" or "would only part with for a REALLY good deal" and don't necessarily get negged. Why should the other side of the coin be different?

No buyer is going to say "Looking to pay the highest price possible." That would be foolish. People want to pay a reasonable price based on their perceived value of a game. If the price is equal to or lower than their perceived value, they'll usually take the deal. If it's higher, they'll usually skip it. The current market value of a game is just a part of that equation that determines perceived value.

Honestly, I think most of Lukami's negs were due to me offering to sell the game to him for $20, not the wording in his post. People were internet-outraged that he got the deal and they didn't.

The funny thing is, if he had actually posted saying he wanted to buy it for $20, he'd get laughed at and the negs would flow. But just saying "don't want to pay an arm and a leg" caused me to think about how I don't like paying an arm and a leg either. Psychologically, it motivated me to want to help him out. Whereas if he had just said "looking for a cheap copy" I probably would have thought "yeah, you and everyone else, pal" and ignored the thread.

@benstylus : You are a saint. I'm glad I caught your attention with my words. Thanks for selling it to me for a fair price and for defending my post as well. I'm actually living abroad in Asia at the moment and everything here is super expensive when it comes to video games. Games almost never go on sale and its practically impossible to find a game for less than retail. Everyone I talked to said 1-2 Switch is like a tech demo for the Switch so I didn't really want to pay $60 for such a game. Something like 20-30 would have been a price I'd have been more comfortable with so I was lucky Shaun came along with a reasonable price for a launch title with not a lot of replay value. I actually didn't know how much they were on the second hand market atm so I just posted I was looking for a cheap copy, not thinking it would anger anyone.
