    So a couple of days ago a couple of buddies of mine and I went to eat at some chinese place and afterwards we went to a nearby game store called play & trade because we kept talking about fun things to do in GTAIV and ending up wanting to buy it. Well as soon as we walk in they had stacks of original xbox games and the first one I noticed was Crimson Skies...... For 5 bucks I literally almost had a orgasm, they also had battlefront 1 & 2, chaos theory, chrono chross/trigger, crash bandicoot, syphon filter 1 & 2, ghost recon 2 (a top fav of mine in the series) and soooo much more (all the the ones I listed were less than $15. If I would of known this store sold my mine childhood I would of wasted so much money on that instead of unnecessary stuff like groceries and dinner and that transformers 3 ticket.

    Unfortunately no KOTOR strangely, and I can't find KOTOR on the XBL marketplace anymore why is it trying to escape me. But the point of this was if you had the chance would you rather spend money on a good/great modern game or a old classic

    Depends on the classic game and modern game choices. If they gave me the option to get ME3 and Skyrim on early realease date I'd choose that over any classic game from my childhood.

    Damn. Nice. The "mom n pop" gamestore here closed. Finding used classic games for cheap is the best though.

    One opened and got shut down I think in a 6-month period near my place. They decided it was smart to open near: Target, Fry's, Wal-Mart, and GameStop.

    Whoops.

    If I had a computer capable of running the stuff I want it to run steam would suck all my money away so I guess thankfully I have crappy hardware.

    When I went into the P&T my reaction was similar to when I first used netflix stream, happy about the choices but overwhelmed by the huge amount of stuff I wanted to see but didn't know where to start. Literally every 3 seconds I was saying "Oh snap they got (insert awesome old game here)" or "Well slap my balls and call me sally I didn't know they sell (insert game here)". They also sold all the old consoles and gameboys
