    So i want a website that sells ALL or most classic consoles games. Like http://stoneagegamer.com and http://www.lukiegames.com/ but cheaper. Because those website are too expensive. I use ebay but I don't like bidding. And BuyItNow is good but i don't like searching through thousands of games to find the cheapest.

    eBay or local stores. If you find anywhere with suspiciously cheap NES games, chances are they are fan reproductions, or not even what you think they are.

    I have this local store called disc replay but their classic console library SUCKS. Any genuine website that sells genuine games for genuine consoles?

    I think the perfect place for you would be Good Old Games.
    They certainly have low prices and a lot of old games.
    The interesting thing is, most of the games are patched or came with self installers with dosbox built in, therefore they work flawlessly on most modern PCs.
    Check it out.

    EDIT: Never mind, I just realized you were looking for console games..........

    Trouble with classic console games or at least most of them is between sales volume at the time (it was only in recent times that runs got bigger and distribution got wider), collectors and destruction of older games prices for some of the titles can get quite high. I find it amusing to watch when emulators and flash carts can often be had but hey it is what it is. You can occasionally pick one up at a garage sale/car boot sale but most people that know this do a quick search for said games online, see what they go for and act accordingly.

    I forgot
    jjgames.com has a great selection and some cheap games. I've bought 2 or 3 games from them for my N64 and no complaints from me.
