Sid Meier's Civilization II (PC)

Besides being one of my all time favourite games, and an excellent strategy experience that has aged to perfection, Sid Meier's Civilization II, Civ 2, was the game that showed everyone that MS Windows could be an acceptable gaming OS. Honestly! If you still got a nice Windows PC from the mid-90s you should grab a complete, boxed version of the game via this Civilization II (PC) eBay auction and see. The game on offer comes with those wonderfully hefty manuals, the tech map, the CD, and some other printed things.

Discworld Noir (PC CD)

I do adore Terry Pratchett's Discworld, and even though it did not always translate to top quality games, this wondrous setting did help spawn one of my favourite adventure games of all time: Discworld Noir. Discworld Noir was an innovative, brilliantly written and designed, often hilarious, very clever, lovely to look at, masterfully scored and wonderfully voiced first person, puzzle-solving affair that you will have to run on a Windows 95, 98 or XP machine to properly enjoy.

To do that, you could start by grabbing this boxed Discworld Noir currently being auctioned on eBay. It is the PC CD version of the game, and comes complete in its sealed big box.

The NES console comes complete in its cartoon-flavoured box with the Schtroumpfs cartridge, manuals, leaflets, leads, two controllers, etc.

Robotron 2084 (Atari Lynx)

With the reputation of the handheld that could really tackle arcade ports, the Atari Lynx had no problem getting itself a truly impressive port of Eugene Jarvis' classic (and by then already retro) Robotron twin-stick shmup. Happily, you can still grab a lovely copy of the port via this Robotron 2084 (Atari Lynx) eBay auction. The game comes complete in its original box and seems to be in great condition.

Shadow of the Beast II (Amiga)

An update both graphically and in terms of gameplay to the stunning original, Shadow of the Beast II by Psygnosis was one of those games that defined the Amiga; at least in my mind. What's more, it came in a big, impressive, and rather lavish box. Just like the one you can bid on via this Shadow of the Beast II eBay auction; the game comes complete with its disks, manual, and of course t-shirt!

Ultima: Quest of the Avatar (NES)

I have never played any western RPG on Nintendo's venerable 8-bit console, but I can't help but be intrigued by this Ultima: Quest for the Avatar (NES) eBay auction. The copy on offer seems to be in great condition and comes complete in its box. As for the game itself, it is supposed to be a slightly different, slightly cut-down of the classic Quest of the Avatar CRPG which is definitely a good thing.

One Fine ZX Spectrum+

It may not look as sleek or unique as the original Speccy models, but the improved keyboard and the reset switch of the ZX Spectrum Plus more than make up for the micro's bulkier size.

The computer comes complete with power supply, leads, a Sony tape player, the official manual, a third party user guide, and a box of games and tapes.

Nintendo Virtual Boy - NIB

The Virtual Boy, one of the very few Nintendo products that really bombed, was, despite its many problems, an utterly unique machine. It was a portable early-VR system with black-and-red visuals that, occasional headache aside, allowed gamers a glimpse of truly stereoscopic 3D, and sported some pretty well designed games.

You can grab one to see what the fuss was (not) all about back in the mid '90s via this Nintendo Virtual Boy eBay auction. The console on offer is essentially new, has never been used, never taken out of its packaging, and comes complete in the original box.

Sandy White's Ant Attack for the ZX Spectrum was a glorious, technically groundbreaking, evocative, and excellently designed game that pioneered 3D graphics on the machine.

Amstrad CPC 464 Plus

The Plus range was a very interesting idea both on paper and in the flesh, but Amstrad's turbo-boosted 8-bit systems --despite the cartridge ports, 4096 colors palettes, sprite handling chips, and all sorts of other extras-- could never compete with the reigning Amigas and STs. Still, the Plus machines make lovely retro micros today, and you can grab a finely preserved, cleaned, tested, and fully working one via this Amstrad 464 Plus eBay auction.

The rare and lovely SAM Coupé

Released in 1989 SAM Coupé was the last 8-bit micro to really attempt to enter British homes, but despite its cool features and ZX Spectrum compatibility it was simply too late. The computer came with impressive specs including a standard 3.5" disk drive, a 6MHz processor, 256K of (expandable) RAM, stereo sound, a palette of 128 colours, and a ton of expansion options. It flopped and is now quite the collectible rarity.

To own one you could do much worse than bid on this rather impressive SAM Coupé bundle on eBay. The computer on offer comes with two disk drives, dust cover, original box, manuals, many disk magazines, the PSU, and a ton of software and games including boxed copies of Manic Miner, Defenders of the Earth, Astroball, and Prince of Persia.

PC Engine CD-ROM

The PC Engine CD-ROM, that is the CD-ROM^2 which could only mean the CD-ROM-ROM, sounded magical back in 1988. It would allow an already powerful but consumer-grade console to play games off CDs! It would also prove to be incredibly difficult and expensive to get a hold of in Europe during that time, and that's why I just can't help but appreciate such auctions as this one for a working PC Engine CD-ROM on eBay.
