Gaming Soundtrack CDs almost for free!

This morning, I found a really tiny but welcoming second-hand Vinyl / CD store. I was looking to sell some of mine, and eventually came across it through the suggestion of a friend.

I ended up not being able to sell any of my own, 'cause the old man who owns and runs the store is retiring soon, so he wasn't buying anything else any more, just selling. So, I was already on my way out when I noticed something in the corner of my eye-- let's say it was a "calling", for the sake of storytelling, hehe. Anyway, there was a whole box of CDs with something handwritten on its side:
 
!!!   €1.5 each CD   !!!

"Oh wow, that's cheap, lemme check what's in it", I thought. And it turns out almost all of the CDs inside that box were gaming soundtracks -- which apparently really don't sell well -- and there were some really awesome titles there, to top it all. I spoke with the really nice old man and ended up buying 10 CDs and making yet another deal with him too. I told him I was very interested in buying a lot more of those when I had more money with me and he said that if I bought over 25, he'd make them €1 each! So yeah, I chose about 40 of them or so, maybe more even, and he set them aside for me, behind the counter.
I'll be back there soon, and add yet even more soundtracks to my already quite big collection of music composed for games. It's nearly not as big as my movie OST's collection, but with the 10 I bought today and these 40-ish that I'll be bringing home soon, it'll start to look like a very respectable one.
 
I'll probably make a list and post it here on GB when I go back to purchase the rest :)
