Oh Look, Games You Didn’t Want Before Are Now Cheap As Hell At GameStop. Whoo-Hoo!
Through July 8th (Today) to August 2nd, video game giant, GameStop, is having a massive sale where thousands of games are under $20. And guess what? Some of these games don’t suck!
On the list of games that totally don’t suck that are on sale are Chrono Trigger on the DS, Prince of Persia for the 360 and PS3, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game-of-the-Year Edition for the PS3, all three of which I HIGHLY recommend you give a whirl (Especially the first one, which is my favorite game of all time, yep yep). But for every Chrono Trigger and Prince of Persia, you also have your Sonic Unleashed, your Mario and Sonic: Olympic Games and your Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. And those aren’t even the WORST of the batch, let me tell you. I wasn’t even bringing UP the just plain bad bad titles, like SingStar (withOUT the microphone, mind you), Hotel for Dogs, and Destiny of Zorro for the Nintendo Wii. I mean seriously, there wouldn’t be a sale at GameStop without absolute crap added on there as well.
What’s most depressing to find on their list of discounted games though is De Blob, which was a little-played Wii game that’s probably going to go the way of Eternal Darkness for the GameCube, as that was another great title that people just didn’t gravitate towards. Why do so many great games meet this fate on the Wii (MadWorld, I’m looking at you).
Some of the games for this sale are used, and some of them are new, so you’re going to have to go to GameStop yourself to find out which is which. Have a fun!
