Dumpster Diving For Games?

So while looking around on YouTube I stumbled upon a fascinating sort of subculture of people who dumpster dive for video games. That's right. They dig through trash to find video games. And some of them apparently find some awesome stuff. Apparently Gamestop likes to throw out old cases, slightly damaged accessories, and sometimes even perfectly good working consoles and games! I've seen plenty of videos such as these, where people have pretty good finds:

What do you think about this? It sounds pretty cool to me, I mean, free video games? Who wouldn't love that? But then there's the whole "trash" part of it too. Still, I might have to try looking in some dumpsters by Gamestop sometime...

So this is my first blog post. I'll probably make some blogs about random stuff pertaining to video games. I personally enjoy most types of games. My favorite consoles are the NES, SNES, GBC, GBA, DS, PS1, PS2 and PS3. I'm fascinated by most of the old school games too. Ya know, those ones on the old computer systems. Not really a fan of shooters, more into action, adventure, puzzle, ect. Some of my favorite games include Spyro, Crash, Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper, Grand Theft Auto, Mario, Pokemon, and a bunch more random as well as some obscure games. Too many to list. But anyways, this is a short post but just kinda wanted to do an intro and say what I was into. I'll probably put up some more blogs soon so check back. :)
