PS1 Gamer Makes Incredible Find at Goodwill

Highlights

  • The PS1 is a beloved console with a rich library of classic games that can still be found and played today, although some are difficult to legally access.
  • A Reddit user found a rare copy of Capcom’s Mega Man Legends 2 at Goodwill for a bargain price, which is significant because the spin-off series has been discontinued.
  • While there are no current announcements for a revival of the Legends series, Capcom’s releases of other Mega Man collections offer hope for its return, as the unique 3D action-RPG titles have been missed by fans.

One gamer shared a classic PS1 game they found going for an incredible deal at a Goodwill store. Sony’s PS1 is often considered one of the best gaming consoles ever. Its rich library of thousands of different games and many hidden gems introduced a whole generation to a lot of recognizable franchises that are still relevant to this very day.

While the console is nearing its 30th anniversary, there are still a lot of titles from that generation that are currently available to discover and play. Some PS1 games are still present on PS Plus Premium, which should give young gamers a chance to experience the classics from the ’90s to the early ’00s. However, there are still a few that have been left frozen in time without a means to play them legally. Fans sometimes visit thrift stores to find classics that aren’t easily accessible in the market nowadays.

A Reddit user by the name of OofBubblesSinnoh posted a photo of a rare find they discovered at a Goodwill. The picture shows a used copy of Capcom classic Mega Man Legends 2 which was priced at 75 cents. Quite a unique deal, especially because the Mega Man spin-off series has long been discontinued by the developers.

Mega Man Legends introduced a lot of unique secrets and storyline explanations that are different from mainline Mega Man games. With its unique setting and more cartoony world, it provided a very fresh experience for fans of the side-scrolling Mega Man titles. The cancelation of the long-rumored Mega Man Legends 3 was made official in 2011, which means the game has rarely been seen or mentioned for over a decade.

At the moment, Capcom has not announced any releases relating to the Legends series. However, with the company choosing to release various classic collections relating to the Blue Bomber such as the Mega Man Legacy Collection, the Mega Man X Legacy Collection, and even the Mega Man Zero ZX Legacy Collection, there is a certain hope for the spin-off to release indeed. The Legends series was unique in that it was the first fully 3D Mega Man title in the franchise which opted for more of an action-RPG experience. There were two main games in the series, with a few Japan-only spin-offs as well as an extra one called The Misadventures of Tron Bonne. Hopefully, with the success that recent collections such as Mega Man Zero Battle Network Legacy Collection have achieved, Capcom could consider bringing back this often-missed series.

Mega Man Legends 2 is available on PC, PS1, and PSP.
