What game(s) did you almost get back in the day but now it's gone up a fair bit in value?
Some of you know the story of how i nearly scored Conker's at 7 years old already, so i thought I'd share the sad story of how I came close to owning this one CIB many times growing up.
Under the Dixie Outlet Mall in Mississauga, Ontario, there is a flea market. My aunt has worked in there on the weekends for over 30 years, and I used to visit extremely often growing up. I would always go chat up other booth owners, it was like a little family down there, everyone knows everyone.
Well, as I'm sure most flea markets have, there was a hefty game booth that was there for over a decade with everything from old Atari to anything modern at the time (GameCube, PS2 Dreamcast, eventually the next generation too.) But she always had an impressive selection of N64, especially in box. There was always a complete copy of Worms Armageddon locked in the case with the rest of the boxes for $50, and many times I had the opportunity to buy it. This is not a moment where I just wish I did because its pricey now, i actually wanted it really bad back then because I had the memories of tears streaming from my face with laughter at the first game on PC. Needless to say, I passed it up for other games, i think Pokémon Stadium 2, instead, and pokemon ruby another time lol. 🤷 Got it now and no regrets.
