My First SNES - Destructoid


I've been playing video games since the late 90s- Starting with stuff like Pokemon Stadium and Twisted Metal. I'm a huge GameCube and Dreamcast fan. (GameCube is cool. Even had a handle!) I love the old muddy graphics of the past- Especially stuff like Pikmin. Cel-shading is even better too. I'm pretty much anti-Microsoft because of their business practices. (Even though I adore Halo. Not the new Halo- Just Bungie's Halo.)
I also like anime. Not too much- Just Cowboy Bebop. All praise the Bebop. I like DBZ, Naruto, and Inuyasha too- But those series are pretty inferior compared.

(I'd rather not put my PSN and LIVE- I mostly don't use them anymore. Well- I mostly don't play multiplayer really. I still play single-player on consoles though.)

Did I mention I like Pikmin a lot? Because I do.
(I'd rather not write about all my fandoms- Too many to count.)

So... I purchased a SNES a couple of days ago. It's the 1997 model that's more of a mini version of the original. (Which probably are more inexpensive than the originals.) I purchased it from a nearby retro game shop- The prices are fantastic there too. I received the SNES for $40. Stuff like Banjo Kazooie for $20 and original Pokemon games for $5 each! I was in heaven! I literally sat there looking at the guy's stock for 30 minutes because his collection amazed me. 
Anyway- Enough about the shop. I bought one SNES game, A Link to the Past, for $15. It's a really great game too. I'm having a lot of fun. (I'm still only at the beginning- Haven't gotten too far.) I'll probably come back and ask if the guy has Earthbound. Maybe even Harvest Moon or Super Metroid. (Oh- Maybe Super Mario RPG!)I'm so glad I don't have to submit to the crazy prices online now.
