So... I went ahead and bought that bundle I saw on CL. From what the guy had posted, I offered him $2,000. He then sent me a website listing his collection, and directed me to an album showing off his stuff. Both had even more things in the collection. He even invited me over to look at it all, which revealed even more items. So I accepted his original offer of $2,500. I can trade it all in at the local game store for more than that (albeit in credit) so I should do okay on it. Was able to get it all in my car - barely. Brought in a couple bins, this is the contents of the first bin:

Dude, you could probably sell off a chunk of that here and make a small profit.

I'm broke as fudge so I couldn't even buy anything but there's one thing there I want. The Grandia II soundtrack.

That's the game. As far as I know there is no soundtrack. Discs only and covered with Hollywood Video stickers.

Would you consider an initial sell off on here? I'm curious to see what else there is, especially Sega Genesis/SNES/NES, if any.

This is the soundtrack.

https://www.mobygames.com/game/dreamcast/grandia-i...

The game is one disc only, and if you say there's two discs, you probably got two copies.

Edit: Also, dibs on PC and any DVD-Video games.

Oh you are right. I was thinking it was a two-disc game, but sure enough that second disc is the soundtrack.

Probably not, I have difficulties selling things here.
There are no NES games, and I think only a few more SNES games. Lost Vikings for sure is one. Maybe a few crappy Genny games in crappy condition.

Jesus Christ I have a box full. Not crappy sports games or Guitar Hero games, but I think the most valuable games are a disc only Silent Hill 3 and Fatal Frame 2.

Only looking for complete games but there's definitely some good cheaper titles that I'm missing.

Oh man, if you still have any of the GC/DC/GBA/N64 games next month i'd be all over it.
> Does anybody know what that clear adapter is in the last photo?
I can't really make it out from so far away, If i HAD to guess, i'd say it looks kind of like some GBA SP adapter?

@whitefire may want the n64 games.

There is nothing I'd be interested in but curious to just see what he was selling. Any reason why he wanted to unload the entire thing? I see he got the 40 Winks N64 game so I assume until recently he was still collecting.

@Missile Ah, GBA, that's what the plug looked like. I'll have to take a photo of it and post it on NA. Looks to be a multitap of some kind, but there is no branding or label on it.

@Boss He just wanted it gone and out of the house. Know it is worth about double what I was paying, but was happy to be done with it. Wants to focus on his Saturn and TGFX 16 collections.

Empty cases and scratched discs. The SF III OST is nice though.

Lost Vikings is the only stand-out. The other SNES games are cracked and the Genny carts are crap sports games. Those are probably going straight to Goodwill.

I confirmed PS1 works but haven't checked PS2. It has an option to create a PS2 memory card but it seems you are right. Will report later.

I'll offer you $2, since there's no telling if a resurface will actually fix any of those and I don't want to be out whatever half ebay value you want plus the cost of failed resurfacing. That'd double your investment for me to do your resale job of cleaning/testing and then throwing stuff out for you, lmk what you think
