    Obviously, like the title says, I've got money for Amazon, and there's a bunch of games I wanna buy. The problem is I can only buy ONE of these games:

    -P.N.03 (Gamecube)
    -Kirby Air Ride (Gamecube)
    -Super Smash Bros. Melee (Gamecube)
    -Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1)
    -Silent Hill (PS1)
    -Megaman X (SNES)
    -Super Metroid (SNES)

    I know I should just make my own decision, but I'm completely undecisive. All of these games are great.
    I want to know what you guys think.

    *I BOUGHT THE GAME. THIS THREAD HAS NO PURPOSE.*

    Why only old games?

    I don't see why anyone would want Melee over Brawl. I really think the whole "IT'S BETTER" thing is just bullshit.

    I didn't think anyone liked PN03.

    Kirby Air Ride is fun but I'm not sure I'd play it nowadays.

    Silent Hill 2 is better.

    Might as well get SotN off the PSN Store for like $15 less and you get it on your PS3/PSP. Or you can get it off XBLA for $10 too.

    Might as well get Maverick Hunter X or buy it off the Wii Shop.

    Might as well buy it off the Wii Shop as well.

    You can probably get a $20 Wii Shop card and get two of the games on the list.

    I own all the systems mentioned. Otherwise, I wouldn't be asking.

    But you see, I don't own a PS3/PSP. I want to own the ACTUAL cartridge/disk. I hate digital downloads. Although, my brother convinced me not to get Silent Hill, SotN, and Super Metroid. So, I'll cross those off...

    TBH SotN is probably the best game on the list.

    I agree, SoTN is the best game on the list, IMHO.

    I was thinking consoles out of those you mentioned.

    Out of that list SOTN as its easily the best. Or splash it on Tales of Symphonia to provide a non nonconformist suggestion.

    You can pirate all that shit, just buy Nano Assault or Ace Combat for 3DS, both in your price RANGE

    Or, buy Nintendo 3DS e-shop e-points

    But don't buy shit you can steal.

    I crossed off SotN, because my brother told me he'd get it for his PSP. So, NO MORE SOTN. Sorry.

    So my choices consist of Gamecube games... all of which I have played and loved...
    Still need a definite reason to pick one of these...

    But you can steal Nano Assault or Ace Combat from a store!

    If I had to give a 3DS game suggestion I'd do Samurai Warriors Chronicles. It's about $25 on Amazon.

    I do own a lot more consoles, but like I said, I want to own the actual game. And sorry, I'm not much of a Tales of Symphonia fan...

    Oh yeah, because that isn't wrong in any way, right? I have pirated stuff before, honestly, but when I pirate games, I never play them. I feel more comfortable with the actual game.

    Due to not having enough money for Super Smash Bros. Melee, (I wanted to get atleast the game and original case. No one sold it cheap enough, though.) I am now finally stuck between P.N.03, and Kirby Air Ride...

    Why P.N.03?
    It's a mediocre and boring game. Get Air Ride.

    I'm afraid to say. Some 'p'eople might get a'n'gry at m'3'... but I'm not afraid to say that I also ended up buying Batman for the NES! Really excited for it.
