Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about some of my favorite old video games that I used to play when I was younger. I’ve always loved games in the horror genre, when they were done right. The Silent Hill games were my favorite, but I also have good memories of the Resident Evil series. I think these games can be credited for a lot of the style of gameplay we see in games of all genres being released now.
The other day we were out at a thrift store, just searching around for hidden treasures. Some of you may already know from previous posts that this is one of our favorite pastimes. Anyway, I stumble across a copy of Resident Evil for the Gamecube.
Hm. No price on it, though. So I asked the worker there and she said $2.
Well, ya know, for just $2 I couldn’t exactly turn it down, now could I? Oh, but it gets better. They were having a sale that day, so it was actually 50% off of that. So yeah, $1. Seriously.
We snagged it up. We have a Wii at home, so we knew we could play it on there. And the game discs, box, everything is all in great shape. The only thing we were missing is the memory card so we could save games, and it turns out MicroCenter had those for a good price.
So yeah, we’re going to give a shot. Just in time, too, since Halloween is coming up. It has been so long since I’ve fought against the Umbrella Corporation, and I can’t wait to have at them.
Wish us luck.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
