Bad Santa: Angry Dad Sells Son's $100 Game For $9,100

   0
A Canadian dad can thank his teenage son's enjoyment of pot for helping him rake in a smooth $9,100 for a copy of Guitar Hero III on eBay. Dad recently purchased the game in an online bid for the sum of $100 as a Christmas present for this kid. Upon catching his offspring partaking in the magical minifestival that is 420, dad decided that the kid no longer deserved the popular rhythm game for Xmas. The winning bid belonged to an Aussie buyer with exceedingly deep pockets, who also seems to like weed, considering his insanely high bidding amount.

About Moi:

The funkily-spelled term 'ikiryou', per Wiki, 'refers to a spirit that leaves the body of a living person and subsequently haunts other people or places, sometimes across great distances'. Now replace the word "haunts" with "annoys". I like more game types than I can think to post here, which makes for an awful backlog of epic proportions. The picture below is a poorly 'shopped representation of me holding my backlog list.



I've been gaming since Defender was only available in an arcade. The first video game I can remember playing (non-arcade) was a Defender clone on some sort of godawful Tandy computer. It could've been a Trash-80, I'm unsure since it was middle school. Then my parental units bought me several LED/LCD-based handheld/tabletop games (Pac-Man and Zaxxon) which were totally not actual video games.

Around the same time I discovered goth/heavy metal/thrash/new wave music, which I thought my parents considered a loud tool of Satan(!). So I naturally consumed it like tasty unrefined Red Lyrium and turned into a frothy-mouthed red demon or something.

I am currently demoniacally possessed by an Xbox, PS2, PS3, Xbox360, a PSP(slim, CFW 6.61), a pearl-white DS Slim, a Vita, and the New 3DS XL...and an ungodly backlog which I've *totally never mentioned before* in this profile.
