The Nintendo 64 is one of the great video game systems ever released with such great games as Super Mario 64, Goldeneye, and Zelda Ocarina of Time. But stores don't carry the games anymore and it can be hard to reputable sites to buy it online. When you do find somewhere selling the games, the prices are still too high for you. So where can you look to find the best deals on Nintendo 64 games? Below are four places to look to find the best prices and maybe even get a rare game for cheap. Pawn Shops - Pawn shops will not have the best selection of games, but you can definitely find some rare ones at great prices. Video games make up a small part of pawn shops business so they don't always know the value of what they have.
Sometimes the prices are really high, but other times you will find great deals. In the middle of the overpriced Madden 98 games for $10, you might find a Zelda for $5. It takes some patience and shopping around, but pawn shops are very high on the finding great deals scale. Flea Markets - Around here, there are usually a couple of video game stands setup at the local flea markets. They sell all sorts of video games and usually carry stuff as old as the Nintendo 64 (and many times even old too).
The merchants usually know video games a bit better so it might be harder to find a really low price on a game, but the selection will probably be a lot better too. Plus, many sellers will allow a little haggling on the prices so don't be shy about asking if you can buy a game for a little bit less than the list price. Independent Video Game Stores - Forget about your Gamestops and EBGames, they stopped carrying Nintendo 64 games quite a while ago. Find the nearest independent video game store. They usually carry past generation systems like Nintendo 64. The prices will most likely be the highest on this list, but they usually have good selections and a number of hard to find games, plus the employees are knowledgeable.
Don't expect to go in and find Super Smash Bros for $5 though, they usually know how much everything is worth and price the games accordingly. Online Stores - There are many websites specializing in past generation consoles and will carry many Nintendo 64 games. If you simply search for 'nintendo 64 games', hundreds of sites will come up that specilize in the N64. Their selection will be the best. And usually they are cheaper than stores, but more expensive than the pawn shops and flea markets. You can quickly compare prices across multiple websites to find the best deals.
Try out some of these technics to find some great Nintendo 64 game deals near you. Finding a super low price on a hard to find game feels great, and the hunt is fun too. Good luck and start your searching. Copyright (c) 2007 JJ Hendricks.
