Title is actually: "Ultima - The Second Trilogy - IV - V - VI"

PC version box set includes:
Ultima IV - Quest of the Avatar
Ultima V - Warriors of Destiny
Ultima VI - The False Prophet

The game appears complete in the box with all of its 5 1/4 floppies, reference books, and cards. Super stoked to find this one....all for $2.00 at the flea market.

I also found: "Metal Heart - Replicant's Rampage" for PC. Its an RPG in a Cyberpunk setting. $1.00 at the flea market. New in sealed packaging.

$2.99 Goodwill. All great with the case, disc, and instructions.

Goodwill is starting to keep their Playstation games in the collectibles case which is a good thing. Yes, they'll be on display under glass and lights, but they'll be less likely to be grabbed out of impulse.

I've heard that some games are going to their online store - most likely N64 and snes carts. That is probably why I haven't see anything except for the Majora's Mask find. I haven't seen a snes cartridge for ages.

PS 2 version. Inside was an 8MB memory card. Not bad for $2.00. I don't need the game, but everything was in such nice condition I couldn't pass it up.
