Has it ever happened to you to loose a game somewhere in your house, completely forget about it and find it a couple years later? That happened to me this year. I was just looking at some of my VHS tapes and found a couple games out of nowhere. They where Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters (PSP) and Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift (DS). I was extremely happy to find them because it felt like if I just recieved 2 free games.

Anyways, has it happened to you before?

The most recent time that happened was with Starcraft and Mario Sunshine, actually. Like, around 2-3 weeks ago.

I've lost too many games to remember all of them, though one game I remember losing was the Sega Genesis game 6-Pak and it wasn't found for about 7-8 years. The ironic thing was my brother bought a new copy of it a few months before it was found.

Found my copy of Star Wars Racer: Revenge about two weeks ago. My mum was cleaning out loads of stuff so thought I'd have a rummage through just to see if there was anything worth keeping. Saw some old CD protectors and in one of them was that PS2 game. It's a little scratched up but nothing too bad. It should still work.

Not sure what happened to the box and instruction manual for it. Definitely had them once upon a time.

I'd also like to add that it always seems like you always find the games you've been half-searching for, for like a year or so, only when you have no desire to actually play it. It's nice to have those games around again, if/when you decide to, but you always stop giving a fuck whenever you do find them. You have to love it.

Found Mickey's Speedway USA for the Gameboy a couple of weeks ago when I was looking through my basement. Almost forgot I had it too. Still works fine, does seem to slow down slightly in gameplay and with music if all 4 racers are on the screen at one time however...

Not really "finding" an old game per say, but I downloaded Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic a few months back and completely forgot how awesome of an RPG it was. They don't make them like that anymore.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

One time I lost a lot of my DS games. They were in a little plastic box. I lost it in 2007 and found it in 2009 after I got a DS Lite.

I pat myself on the back when I find a game. (3)DS games can be a BITCH to keep up with, even if you put them in cases.

I just keep my 3DS and DS games in their original cases.
