Does anyone know where I can buy Paper Mario (GCN) for a reasonable price?

Hi everyone. I've never played Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, and I really want to pick it up! However, every website I go to is selling it used for over $35. I simply can't justify prices upward to the nearly cost of a new Wii game and so I'm at a loss. Can any of you guys help me out? Thanks.

Apologies if this post is not welcome here.

Nope. They have it listed, but you can't buy it. Try adding it to your cart or seeing if they have it anywhere within 100 miles of your location. They don't. I had my hopes up when I first saw it, though. :/

Look at old secondhand cd shops, talk to some friends that might have had a GC and may have t and be willing to sell. Otherwise, ebay is your best bet, try to find the best buy now price you can. I'm not comlaining, I found Luigis mansion on their after about a month of trying to find it cheaper, found it for 27 and shipping brought the cost up to 31 (Us dollars btw) so I was very happy with it, orgianl case and game art and the game was in great condition , it was only missing the booklet. Persoanlly, i;d find Paper Mario worth $30, I got lucky and bought an old copy off a friend for ten:P

Flea markets, thrift stores, and garage sales are your best bet, unless you happen to live near a media store that sells retro game at a flat rate regardless of rarity or value (I live near a few and they're my prefered place for getting great deals on games). You might have to wait a while before getting a copy, but by waiting you'll get a much better deal in the end. More patience, more savings.

Just pay the 35 bucks, it's worth it.

Does your local Gamestop still have a copy? Mine does, and it's about $12.
