 Post subject: Are you a collector?
PostPosted: Fri Feb 15, '08, 12:55 am 
There are lots of different reasons to buy games, but one I've never quite gone in for is collecting. There are some people who buy games and keep them sealed, never opening the plastic to play the game. That just seems like a waste to me. It's true that some of the games might become very valuable later, but I'm of the mindset that games are meant for playing.

I'm far from a collector, but if I were to see something of value, wether in terms of currency or personal enjoyment, I'll buy it. Heck, I have a 'portable' Pac-Man machine my Uncle game me a few years back. At today's price, it might get me $100, if I'm lucky. (It probably would've gone for double, but i'm missing the battery cover.) And as of today, It's still up on my dresser, waiting for me to finally go out and get it some new batteries.

I'm not really a collector in that sence. I collect the games yes but I also play them lol. Although the only game I have that is in mint condition would be my Final Fantasy VII. I have the original white discs, they've never been taken out of the case, I just use my cousins Greatest Hits version whenever I feel like playin FFVII.

Bah! I'd never collect games just to look at them! It's not really odd that people do that though, I mean, look at comic books and action figures, those are great examples of merchandise that is meant to be enjoyed but more often people simply put them away and wait for their worth to rise.

And to Kaloes: Your new signature is simply amazing. :D I haven't heard the theme song in ages!

I couldn't do that. It would be too tempting. Maybe if I wanted to make some money I could get a brand new good game and sell it 10 years later on E-bay :rofl:

I don't get the collecting mindset for anything that's meant to be enjoyed, whether it be games, toys, action figures, whatever. I could never get a game just for the sake of having it because it might be worth money someday. If you want money, there's other ways to get it. Get your games and such for enjoyment, it's what they're made for.
