The games are.

Dragon Quest-the Journey of the cursed king
Shin Megami Tensei:Lucifers Call
Jade cocoon 2
Musashi:Samurai Legend
Rogue Galaxy
Final Fantasy XII
That is an amazing amount of good games and lots of hours for a silly price. What was the condition of each?

They are all complete but not checked all the discs yet for scratches.But at a glace they all look pretty good to me.Will take a closer look tomorrow and photo them might stick them in the king of the quids competition :D

Well, frankly it could be the winner! So much for the money as I said! Would you consider letting Musashi go? :)
