Totally. Just walk into a shop selling games, and tell them you'd like to benefit from a "zniżka na pięć palców", which is the term used for "I would like a discount, please".

It might be doable but although I haven't bought a video game in Poland for a while, I can tell you the last time I looked at [Playstation] games, not only were they not any cheaper than in the UK, but some were actually more expensive.

You can get a lot of things on the cheap in Poland when compared to the USA or western European countries, but video games and electronics in general do not seem to be one of them.

I'm not interested in video games but I guess it depends. A quick Google search reveals that the prices range from 70 to over 300 zloty depending on the title. I don't know how that compares to where you are.

Well 300 zloty is about 84 dollars, so that's a lot for a game, no matter what the title.

70 is closer to 20 dollars - probably for older games. So if these prices are real, as you can see, not exactly cheap.

Guys, do you know you can watch your fav video games on youtube?

I found two famous adventure games which I played in 1995. I didn`t buy them, I borrowed them from my students who had gotten them from parents for birthdays etc. The prices must have been quite acceptable, then.

I still remember them coz they have wonderful soundtracks which I even recorded onto my PC and listened to while driving a car. But the CDs got scratched and I discarded them.

Gabriel Knight Part 2.

Phantasmagoria

So, now I am going to listen to Gabriel Knight story again. Amazing music, just check the intro to find out for yourselves.

Gabriel Knight Part 2.

So, being sick, I stayed at home all day, teaching kids English, cooking pierogis, repairing a metal bed.

I also watched the Gabriel 2 playthrough. 9 hours! I had found the script and could at last understand what some characters say. And they use a lot of slang, additionally the story is set in Germany and most German characters speak with a heavy accent. E..g, they say zei instead of they, vot instead of what etc.

I don`t remember doing half the scenes in the game, it seems I took the shortcuts, but now I have time to relish all options.

The story involves werewolves. Scriptwriters suggest that Bavarian King Ludvig was changed into a werewolf. The same one who Gabriel Knight has to confront in 20th century.

Check out that funny German English.

E.g., at 59:45

The amazing soundtrack of Gabriel 2
