    Every year on Black Friday there are usually some good deals on video games and even if there are not, I buy some anyway...

    I was wondering what would be good deals for games and if there is a price point for a particular game that you would recommend getting it at. For example I bought Pilot Wings Resort for $30 bucks but if anybody sees it on Black Friday for $10 or less I would definitely pick it up...well worth $10.

    Just in case other people want to use my thread I won't say what I have but I will stress that I really want NSMB2 and was wondering if there is anyone out there who thinks it is well worth the $40...Personally I would have to wait at least until its $35 before even considering...but that is my opinion.

    Vita games.
    Zero Escape and a few others.
    That is all. Edit: Did not see this was in the 3DS board!

    I don't think it's worth waiting for three days before and miss Thanksgiving with my friends and family just to get cheap videogames.
    Sorry

    Did Nintendo eShop give discounts last year? This is my first year with an N3DS...

    Pilot wings for less then 10 used and if you want NSMB2 you can get it for $31.98 shipped at Frys new. You can buy it used for $25ish if you want.

    Plus, people tend to get trampled in the rush.

    Yeah, not worth it.

    I appreciate your opinions and know that Black Friday can be pretty hectic, but you aren't really helping me out...
    Even if you don't agree with going out you can still tell me what you think some video games are worth, also I know how to search and find prices for cheap games...what I want to know is what would everyone value their current 3DS games at. In other words you play a game and after you are done you either think "That was worth what I paid", "That was over priced", or "I would pay way more than what I paid".

    Basically I want people to act like honest resellers who only sell games for the price that game is worth and then tell me that price.

    That's actually a myth. There's no actual documented case of that happening, last I checked.

    I didn't mean literally. I was talking about their souls.

    Consumerism, man.

    Oh you know what? Don't get Starfox 64 3D unless you have friends who like multiplayer on it a lot, because I beat it in an hour.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I moved this thread to General Off-Topic so that more people could participate in the discussion (after all, people with other consoles love Black Friday deals, too!).

    But if you want to keep this discussion limited strictly to 3DS games, let me know and I'll move it right back to the 3DS section.

    Hobby Link Japan often has some deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday for figures although I don't think they are specifically BF/CM sales but they pop up like weeds enough to give it a mention.

    Agreed. I only beat it in an hour, myself. And the multiplayer is only local multiplayer, too.

    Cyber Monday is where it's at.

    I know there's some awesome deals but I'd rather not waste my post-Thanksgiving day by waking up early and sitting out in the cold for several hours to hopefully nab a good deal or get trampled to death.
