Topic title is self-explanatory. Note that I don't expect EVERYONE to remember where they got the game, so for those of who who didn't remember
the greatest moment in your lives just a summation answer will do (from a friend, online, at a store, ect.). I also don't expect everyone here to have played the game, though I know a majority of people here have.
Now, as for me...I rented my copy at a Hollywood rental store some time after playing a demo of it at Toys R Us. I played it, loved it, beat it, cried (both at the ending and when I had to return it), saw it at a Game Stop a few days later and DIDN'T buy it for some stupid reason, never saw it again for several years, then bought it when I saw it at a GameStop a some years back.
Now, then, any stories you guys have to share?
