Several years ago, when I was still working my N64, I decided I wanted my own copy of Conker’s Bad Fur Day and went on Ebay thinking, “This will be so easy and cheap.” But then I saw an auction that looked like this:
My first thought was, “What?”
My second thought was, “Who are these people who are willing to pay $36 for a used, damaged copy of a game that came out almost a decade ago?”
Then, I met David.
David collects retro NES, SNES, Gameboy, and Sega games. He restores them. He catalogs them. He plays them. He treats each one like the Hope Diamond. I think that’s awesome and wanted to write about it so that you’ll think it’s awesome too.
