Not strictly retro, I know, but I do hope you will allow your humble host the luxury of pointing you towards Bundle In A Box - Adventure Bundle. It's something I've been working on for quite some time now and I do believe it has a certain retro/indie appeal, what with it featuring six rather brilliant adventure games and one text-adventure. Please, do have a look... It's a pay-what-you-want affair after all.

We are all pretty much aware of the sheer brilliance of Gabriel Knight I & II and the fact that a complete, boxed copy of Gabriel Knight Mysteries (LE) is quite the rarity.

It's the complete box including both games, the novel, the comic, the manuals etc. Seller ships only to US and Canadian addresses.

I am fully aware of the fact that you can get a GameBoy for much less, but you simply have to take a look at this lovely Nintendo GameBoy auction dear reader. You know, if only to admire the pictures of a brand new, unused GameBoy in its original, Tetris-including packaging. Seller ships worldwide.

Despite horrendous loading times the Neo Geo CD was the first, almost affordable Neo Geo console and the only way to play those amazing arcade hits in the comfort of one's place. Happily, you can still grab a Neo Geo CD without having to sell off said place. Try this Neo Geo CD auction, for example, and see for yourselves. It's the boxed, Japanese version of the thing and the seller ships worldwide.

Oric-1, the blue and white 8-bit micro with the tiny keys and the elegant design, that to this day remains my little obsession...

It's the complete, boxed and untested micro. Seller ships worldwide.

I know that the original Sony PlayStation is both historically important and definitely retro, but, somehow, this second fact just makes me feel old... Still, I couldn't help but noticing this lovely and most probably very modestly priced PlayStation auction on eBay. The console comes complete with the original gamepad, a memory card, and seven games including Tomb Raider II. Seller ships only within the US.

Leather Goddesses of Phobos by Infocom is a brilliant, sexy, funny and excellently written text-adventure, that has aged beautifully and still manages to provide with a ton of choices ranging from the gender of the main character to the game's naughtiness. Taking into account that the Amiga hasn't aged at all either, well, you should really take a look at this Leather Goddesses of Phobos auction.
The games comes complete in its box, meaning all the amazing feelies, including the unscratched scratch-'n'sniff thiny, are there and everything is in near mint condition. Seller ships worldwide.

Aha! People seem to be bidding on a most intriguing 260 IN 1 pirate cart for the Nintendo NES (seller ships worldwide). Now, if the eventual buyer would be so kind as to let us know what those games are, I'd be delighted.
The Sega Master System might not have been able to overshadow the NES, but it do pretty well and has a rich library of titles. Among them you'll even find the proper and historically important King's Quest I adventure, that you could easily grab via this King's Quest (SMS) auction. The game comes complete with its manual and box and the seller ships to N. and S. America, Europe, Australia and Japan.

Neo Geo AES games are rarely cheap and Bang Bang Busters is not an exception. Just have a look at this Bang Bang Busters auction for the complete, boxed copy of the US AES version. Mind you, this is a new game for the old machine, that plays (according to at least one friend) great and of which only 100 carts were produced. Seller ships worldwide.
