    For example: sketch-1536967032718.

    I got a copy of Warioware DIY for $0.03 USD. Anyone got anything cheaper?

    If you bought that in Australia you would have had to pay 5 cents - we no longer have 1c and 2c coins so it would have been rounded up :-p

    Which is a good thing, when you consider that those coins cost more to make than their face value - More countries should do this.

    Wow, this is actually a toughie. Let's see... If it's bang for the buck value, I picked up the GOTY copies of Borderlands 1 and 2 on a Steam Sale for $8 total a few summers ago. Otherwise, I think I paid something like 25¢ for a used copy of Star Fox Assault at GameStop once, to replace my old launch-day disc someone ran off with.

    Well, as for games, the cheapest I remember were GBC Pokémon carts, 5$ each, and all genuine carts even.

    I was really baffled honestly.
    The seller was a dad, and clearly didn't know the value of these.
    I even got a GBA SP (AGS-101) and a fully functional Nintendo Gamecube, including the Pokémon games, for a grand total of $100

    While not the cheapest game i have ever bought ( that would be a copy of FF13 i bought for 10p to be used in as a prop in something) the best deal I ever got on some games was a box of PS1 games when a local business whet under. I paid £50 for the box and it had about 25 games in. In the bottom of the box was 2 copies of Suikoden 2 - One opened, one factory sealed Sold the open one almost immediately to a friend for £45 still have the sealed one to this day.

    I got a copy of a trash game called zack zero for $0.06

    Some company was doing a promotion that you could get any game in their store for $0.06 - but they gave out like 1000 games from humble bundles, and like only 5 AAA/actually-worth-playing games.

    I bought a couple Super Famicom games out of a basket for 30 yen each a few years back. They were useless horse racing and mahjong games. All I wanted were the cartridge shells (to make a home for my SD2SNES).
