Five Dreamcast games for 8 Euros? Hellllll yeahhhhhhh!

I really don't want to turn this blog into the kind where every single post is about what I've bought or received, it makes me feel like I'm gloating over nothing much and its making me look like a snob. I do realise though that this is the third post in a row like that. Please understand its because I'm currenlty on the move alot because of a family holiday, I can't really post about much else.
Just wanted to get that out of the way, now I can sleep easy tonight without worrying what random people on the internet are thinking about me.

Anyway, onto what I picked up today:

As the title so subtly hints, I got five Dreamcast game for 8 Euros.
Its weird were I found them too. I can't exactly remember the name of the town, but its near were Leonardo De Vinci died (a hint!). Throughout the whole of France I haven't seen one used game store, not one. Walking down the cobbled high street I came across two, pretty much across the road from each other. 
I bought all these games at one, the other place was rip. The Dreamcast games were between 10 and 15 Euros there. As you can see in the picture the highest price I paid for a game was 3.

The guy in there was funny. He didn't speak any English and all the games were in a locked glass cabinet. I pointed to the games and said in English "I want to buy them" hoping I would get the message across. He just looked at me blankly and then shook his head. I then took out some money and pointed at that and then the games, but he just shook his head again. After some more failed attempts of pointing I used my Dad's translating device to figure out what 'purchase' was. He understood after that and sold them, though seemingly reluctantly as if he didn't want to. Its his fault for making them so cheap I guess, literally cheaper than chips.

They were as follows:
Phantasy Star Online- complete (2 Euros)
Chu Chu Rocket- complete (3 Euros)
Shadow Man- complete (1 Euro)
Blue Stinger- missing manual (1 Euro)
Tomb Raider: The Lost Revelation- has manual but not in original case (1 Euro)
