My father-in-law passed away last weekend. I'll accept condolences, but only for my wife as we didn't get along that great. He had been sick for 2 years and lived far longer than anyone expected. But that's besides the point. The real reason I post about this here is because as part of his estate, the family gave me his entire cartridge-based video game collection (his son still had the Playstation, so he took all the PSX games, and the guy switched to PC only in the early 2000's).

NES:
Shadowgate
Ultima
Dr. Mario
Dragon Warrior
Dragon Warrior II
Monopoly
Battletoads
Bigfoot (as in the monster truck, not the sasquatch)
Final Fantasy
Legacy of the Wizard
Super Mario 2
Super Mario 3 (this makes my third copy of this cart, I really should sell some)
Klax
Mission Cobra (this is an unlicensed game, and apparently the most valuable of the lot)

Genesis:
Shining Force (with box)
Shining in the Darkness
Haunting
Vectorman 2
Ecco the Dophin (with box)
Combat Cars (with box)
Sonic and Knuckles
Comix Zone
Altered Beast (with box)
Sonic the Hedgehog
Phantasy Star III

I also got a pile of NES controllers and a Zapper. Now you may be wondering why the consoles weren't included. Well that's because they were given to me years ago after they got a flatscreen TV that needed a converter to use them. And they weren't just any Genesis and NES, it was a 'High Definition Graphics' Model 1 Genesis (the one the internet deems as having the best audio chip) and a Top Loading NES. We didn't know where the games had gotten to until we started cleaning out the house and found them mixed in behind a shelf of VHS tapes.

Condolences to your wife on the loss of her father.

That's some cool stuff to get. Funnily enough I was checking out prices of the boxed versions of Shining Force 1 & 2 the other day on ebay. I was hoping to find a cheapie, but they are still going for $100+.

That's the one I have. The sexiest looking console ever.

Do you ever worry about a gamealanche?
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!
