Okay. My forum buddies. Hook me up with some links, Yo! Ahem. I'm looking for Goldeneye for the nintendo 64. I'm starting my retro gaming thing and I remeber how my old cartridge got lost then found then stole by a former friend. Where can I get it besides Ebay? I'd rather do it offline, it's easier for me. I tried: [online] Gamestop Ebgames Bestbuy Circuitcity Compusa Amazon Any suggestions welcome. Please help me out with some links. Thanks.

My local Gamestop has that kind of stuff in bins throughout the store. I guess it varies from store to store as to the inventory, so that's probably why it isn't listed online. Try stopping by one and checking in person, or just call and ask.

Aside from EBAY you are going to have to go to yard sales or hope someone trades it in at EB or your local game trading store.

The only way that you'll get older games such as the ones you listed, is if you find a store that specializes in used games, DVDs, and music. I know a couple around my area that still have tons of games from SNES, all the way to current generation console games.

There are some stores arround my City in the underdepths of the streets that have alot of old hardware, games and other retro stuff stockpiled. The kind of quality and prices vary, and not all of it is nessasarly legit (broken, damged or just plain pirated) but you can often find some good stuff if you keep an eye out. Mostly the consoles you want to keep an eye on as there literaly usualy on there last secconds of life.

I would never trust anyone i meet on E-Bay. Its really unsafe to me.

thirstygYou tried Amazon? http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00000DMAT/ref=pd_sxp_f/102-7204122-3753742?v=glance&s=videogames

Yeah amazon is great if you can't wait for a ebay auction.

Try Ebay. Bid in the last few minutes and you will pick up some bargains!
