Brandon of Mammoth Gamers recently purchased a used copy of Pokémon SoulSilver. Before he started his journey through the second generation, he came across another player's file and had an unexpected problem hit him.
Sometimes you just need to move ahead and erase old game saves.
Indeed especially when it is someone else's save files on a cartridge that they have sold on.
This won’t be an issue on Switch when you can have one save file per account, meaning players can finally abuse the trading system
You really shouldn't give a shit about another gamer's save file on a used game you purchased... While its fun to walk in another's shoes for a bit you shouldn't feel guilty about erasing the save file. I mean if they cared about the time invested and keeping the save file i'm sure they would not have sold the game for pennies on the dollar to a used game store. Please wipe the save and start your own adventure. Game on!
I bought a used Final Fantasy Tactics for the Gameboy Advance and it has a save file of about 300 hours in it. I feel guilty about deleting that file, luckily I can start my own separate one. I am hoping once I do and beat the game and compare my party to the previous player's and see what we did differently.
