    An SNES for $130 when you could buy a N64 w/ gold controller for $150??? What a ripoff!!! Fuck Toys R I hope they go bankrupt and close a bunch of stores one day.

    You know what I miss from that era? The amazing game demo section. They had systems in this circle with all the games surrounding it. The TV's would be in those awesome displays and you could play demos of all the games. I remember getting a chance to play the 3DO. At the time it blew my mind the kind of graphics you could get. Plus since I knew I could never afford one, it at least gave me the chance to try it out.

    These days you go in and there's maybe one TV playing the same Call of Duty ad. There's no fun or style anymore. Just bland shelves of games with no incentive to come in the store.

    Remember how even stores like Sears got in on it and would have those units that would sit on the counter? My fave was the SNES demo kiosk.

    My two favorite demo stations were 1) the CompUSA by my house that had an AES with Magician Lord and B) Sears that had SNES and Gameboy demo kiosks. I would play Magician Lord for hours and I was always fascinated how they got the Gameboy image on the TV.
