Tip Sheet

Look around your town or city for pawn shops which often sell games and systems (even new ones) cheaply. Garage sales are also a good source. Online you can hunt out bargains at websites like Craigslist and eBay.

Tap into the fad for retro games. Look for older consoles and home computers; the games for these can often be picked up for next to nothing. Many retro games are more playable than the games of today.

Buy used or like new games. Instead of buying disposable batteries for your controller, consider purchasing a set of matching rechargeable batteries/charger. For Xbox, buy an annual gold subscription instead of paying month-to-month.

my favorite sleeper 2-player game is RAMPART. You can find it for most Game consoles in Classic Game Packs. It combines Risk, Tetris and Missle Command in one very fun, never gets old video game.

I agree, we buy and sell our games and videos at Game Stop. You get a discount/credit for bringing your old games you can use towards purchasing new games.

Buy competition style games that can play up to four people at a time or can be played against others online. These types of games never get old since its about whose the best, rather than completing a campaign. Save money by holding your interest longer.
