17 Games we could never get rid of

Darryl Linington from ITF Gaming writes: Nowadays gamers tend to trade-in their video games quite often, some even trade-in a title a day or two later after purchasing it. While this is normal for those games that ultimately suck, there are always those golden gems that will forever hold a place in our collections.

I've never traded a game in, but had plenty of games I've loaned to friends that have never returned ( 1993 - a fair chunk of my Sega Megadrive collection), and games w flatmate loaned to PEOPLE I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW ( 1996 - most of my PSX collection).

The soul still burns!

I've been gaming near 30 years, and even some of those games I didn't love so much, I still wouldn't mind playing now. It's not worth the five or ten bucks trade in, when that "10 years ago" nostalgia kicks in!

No joke... I quit loaning out games to friends. Still trying to get Forza 4 back from my nephew, and my dumbass brother-in-law "lost" my Zelda OoT cart.

Damn, im replaying Oot on my Tab2 right now. Just beat water temple and got fire arrow lol.

I am the same way. I tell people I dont loan games or quickly change the subject when they ask. A good line I use when they seem persistant to borrow it is "this game is so good you need to buy it. You need to own it. Support the developers...blah blah". Works like a charm.

I received Mortal Kombat; however loaned it to a mate on launch day... let's just say I never saw it again after that.

I know what you mean. This gen I have lost kz3, heavy rain, assassins creed 2, metal gear solid 4 and resistance 2 because I loaned them to a friend.

He loaned them to some of his friends and they have lost/sold them or whatever. I don't want to ask him to pay me money for the copies because he is my friend and I don't want to be a jerk lol.

It kinda pisses me of though.

if anything your friend is a jerk. its his/her responsibility that you got your game back. he should pay you back. it doesnt make you a jerk, if anything it makes you a push over if you dont tell him to pay you back

I would stop being friends with someone that does that. Although i have removd people from my life for much less. I once dumpd a girl for wearing her nasty lazy day sweatpants when i went over to her house to hangout with her. So i am a pretty cold person anyways.

i too never get rid of my games... i went to best buy to buy a game, and i only go there since i hate gamestop so much.... but now best buy employees are forced to ask you if you want to trade in your games... i had to tell the guy, LOOK! I DONT SELL ANY OF MY GAMES!!! that shut him up :)

So, they could get rid of inFamous 1/2, but not Prototype 1/2? Not sure if they thought this one through.

urwifeminder1355d ago

I get rid of most games i only keep very rare games discontinued titles,i trade the majority at the start of each gen.

DEZn00ts1355d ago
