I recently bought a used copy of Red Alert 2. Since it got good reviews from IGN, I figured it'd be worth picking up.

The CD's are in great shape for a used game, as is the CD case (which is a sleek DVD-Style case too!)

So, I tried to install it... and it asked for the serial number. I all cool-like look at the case, and; ... nothing there. Huh. There's no instruction booklet either, and no serial number inside the box. I didn't get the serial number with my game!!!

Annoyed, I write a hillarious letter to Westwood asking for a serial number or... I RETURN IT! *Gasp!* They tell me they can't give it to me.

And moreover, EB doesn't really want it back either, and if I do return it, I can only get in-store credit minus the tax! BAH! You'd think after selling me a faulty product, they'd HAVE to take it back...

I'm making a resolution to never buying a used game again. But hey, I picked up the original Baldur's Gate game when I was at EB, so I have that to play, at least...

Well, there's a good reason to not get used PC games. But console systems are great. I've been addicted to Crazy Taxi 2 lately (Dreamcast), and it set me back all of $15 used.

I doubt that many people are clamoring to play Superman 64. Wouldn't anyone with N64 games already own an N64, though? And would they have to start producing the cartridges again in order to make the adaptor worth having?
