Haul like that, I'd frame the receipt and show it to my grandkids.

I actually keep most of my game receipts, thought it just says 6 small items on it. Now this is a receipt I show every time someone says new games are too expensive:

Final Fantasy II - SNES - First game I ever bought with my own money!

Crazy thing is, that was nearly 25 years ago too - 75 bucks itself was a lot more money back then...  Even so, that much now for a brand new game isn't cheap!

I remember SNES and Nintendo 64 games were expensive. 500 krona (currently around $60) were considered cheap for a game.

Damn, glad I was just a kid then and my parents bought my games for me. The 90s sound expensive. Grin

On a positive note, I just scored a Wii U with Smash 4, a Gamecube controller adapter and a Smash-branded Gamecube controller for $200! I am very happy with this purchase and am currently in the process of setting up Nintendont. Smiley Anyone familiar with Wii U homebrew? Any tips?

Also got Ness, Greninja and Rosalina amiibos at basically retail price. Now I'm done with Amiibos until Duck Hunt comes out (and Yarn Yoshi...and K.K. Slider...) It's been a good few weeks for the kid in me. Could be worse on my wallet, too.

Well, my Genesis collection has a new centerpiece. I just had to go after this. I'm kind of broke, but it's not everyday you get offered MUSHA locally. It cost me 3 repros and $125 cash.
