    I plan on purchasing a n64 soon and I'm looking for a place to buy games. I've checked my local craigslist and there isn't anything unfortunately. I know most people will recommend amazon and I agree that the prices on amazon are cheap, but the thing is, I'll have to pay shipping for every individual game and that will add up quick. That's why I'm looking for one website that will ship me multiple games at once and I'll only have to pay shipping for one whole package. Thanks.

    i never found any sites that did bulk shipping on game cartridges, but you don't have any local flea markets, goodwills, thrift stores or the like near by.
    i found a snes for $1.00 and a copy of Final Fantasy for the nes for the same price so if you want a good deal you might want to check local first, though i realise you might have already.

    if you have stores like Game Crazy near you,you can always check there my local Game Crazy has a bunch of NES,SNES,GB,Genesis,N64 and PS1 games but i'm not sure if they all are like that i'm sure they are though.

    I checked the only thrift store near me and they had nothing but a sega genesis. I also checked the only game crazy and they stopped selling them which really sucked. Doesn't look like there's any good websites though. I guess I'll have to use amazon. Thanks though.

    so i guess not all Game Crazy stores still sell the classic games the one near me still does...well a lot of times you can find good deals on ebay i know i bought a bunch of PS1 games in 1 auction for a very low price...so i'm sure you could probably find something like that for N64 games...also check pawn shops a lot of times people just pawn off their games...also sometimes you can find specialty shops that only deal in classic games you can look in the yellow pages for a store like that.

    then maybe its just your store because the entire company stopped selling old outdated games and started to focus on newer games...

    I went to go to a funcoland a week ago but they closed down. Next time I go out, I'll check to see if gamestop has it. I went to a few small ones like ones in malls or ones that were just small rooms and they didn't have any. I do know of one larger gamestop, so I'll check there.

    @omgpwn666:well a lot of the N64 games they have might still be left over from all the years or maybe people brought them in and just gave them to gamestop since they wont give you money for them.
    @jgu1994:funcoland was bought out by game stop almost 10 years ago same with Software etc stores.

    I know that funcoland was bought out, but I think the store still said funcoland on it. It was probably owned by gamestop, it just never changed its name.

    oh lol but yeah um your best bet would be to try your gamestop then they might have them in a cage like omgpwn666 said but if no luck with that then Ebay or looking for a specialty store are your best bet...for me if i want to find copies of classic games theres a little hidden shop behind a strip club in the desert i go to lol...

    I hit up the independent preplayed game stores, you usually see them in malls, or as part of a strip mall. I've gotten some great deals... N64 Gameshark Pro (v3.3) for $3, Ep I Racer $1.50 were probably my best two. Usually the only thing that's really expensive is the big name games like Mario.
