What do you do with old games/ games you've already beaten
« on: September 07, 2020, 02:40:59 AM »
Seeing people's reactions to all these reissue/remakes has me curious. I've kept every console and game since my very first super Nintendo.  Only game in my life I ever traded in was Harry Potter and the sorcerers stone for the ps1 and  i still regret it. Tell me about yourselves slap

I buy 99.9% of my stuff digitally so I have no choice but to keep it. I used to sell or trade in my games if I got all the achievements and didnít care about replaying the game or playing multiplayer

Store them, like a normal person?

No, but I swaped very few when I was super broke, the rest is still with me.

The good ones I keep a disc in a CD book.  shit games in trash.  Same approach to digital games, i think i actually end up deleting every game due to my Ps4 running low on disk space.

I've tried to play through and sell most switch games after I've beat them
For earlier consoles, I held on to most of the games so they can collect dust.

I'm a sucker for physical media so I keep everything. Even if it's a game I probably won't play through again it's probably not worth much so it's at least nice to have in the collection.

It depends on how tempted I am to replay in the future after beating them, but I usually end up handing off games to my friends if I think they'll enjoy them while I'm not playing them.

But, when I was younger and broke I would take them to Game X Change and get whatever cash I could. Hindsight, I shouldn't have done that, but it is what it is.
This thread makes me feel like I just came across two Juggalos fucking in an alley.

Iíve kept the majority of games Iíve purchased.

There was a phase in college where I flipped a lot of Saturn stuff that would have been worth bank had I kept everything. 

Iím now in a weird position though in that I have a few pricey games that Iíd rather not part with but theyíre basically gathering dust at the moment and Iím thinking more and more about selling them so I can buy leisure stuff I would use more.

I basically just keep everything if I'm not gonna get anything more than $10 for it. When I see people trading in games for just a few dollars or for small fraction of what they paid for it, it makes me sad. Might as well keep it.

I do trade in any rare games or items I may have to estarland. They give a lot of store credit and they're local to me. And I usually only trade in games that I can still play through other means.

I havenít played any video games in a while but I hated the thought of spending $60 on a game playing it for a month and trading it in for $20 max. Now those games are worth a few dollars at most and I didnít touch them so I probably should have just traded for $20 then.
My library loans out video games for 3 week periods and for the last few years they would get just about everything so you just had to look everyday and get on the waitlist as soon as something was added to their catalog- usually a couple months before release.

Last game I bought was RDR2 and I played around 200 hrs. of that so I donít regret spending $60 when you break it down.

I kept every game ever... Nintendo, Genesis, PS1, PS2, PS3 etc. for a long time.
I sold all the old Nintendo and genesis stuff (for decent money on eBay) when my son was little to get extra cash.
I've actually kept every skateboarding game I ever owned (minus 720, kept skate or die though).
Even the really weird ones like MTV Skateboarding and X-Games whatever it was called.
Also, my favorite game of all time (not skating wise) was NHL93 and I kept my Genesis NHL93. That game was my jam.

In my experience, it is best to hold on to what you can.  Some games become very valuable later.  Also, gamestop really screws you on payment for games.  That being said, sometimes you need cash so it is what it is.  Seek out selling games personally before giving in to a place such as gamestop.

I delete (when digital) or trade in (when physical) almost every game after I get all (or at least most of) the trophies. The only exceptions are games that I know a friend still wants to try. Besides those I only keep some games I know I revisit from time to time, such as rocket league, skate, diablo 3 and gran turismo.

It's not even just Gamestop, smaller local gaming shops will also try to lowball you as well when it comes to selling or trading in physical media.

I finally sold my entire game collection this summer because I needed the cash but also truthfully I just don't play games as often anymore, it was such a pain dealing with shops that I just sold everything in bundles via Craigslist and LetGo which was way more convenient and profitable.

I've been selling games and consoles on craigslist to strangers since I was 12. Luckily I never got diddled.
