Most of my friends had Pokémon Ruby or Sapphire but I just never seemed to get around to buying it. Much, much, much later I had got both Sapphire and Emerald from my cousins who no longer wanted their copies. At that point I already had Diamond so much of the excitement to finally play those games had dissipated. I remember when Klonoa: Empire of Dreams came out I had trouble finding it and resorted to ordering it off of Amazon(?) and got sent a bootleg of it complete with ripoff box and a shoddy manual with the copyright information pages gone. I did eventually realize this was a bootleg with a faulty save feature and got myself a legit copy online elsewhere.
Favorite game(s): Klonoa: Empire of Dreams, Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament, WarioWare

Wasn't even looking out for it until I saw it in a bin at a used game shop randomly. I said "Hey, I remember this game" and got it cheap.
