I just hate it I think almost every previous game has had it's share of owners that were scratching themselfs, doing the nasty alone or sneezed and cover the box with it. I know I was like that before when I sneezed at my Halo 3 box. I think Gamestop cleans them but the Game is not worth keeping anymore I think that there is a  few germs that stay no matter how hard its been cleaned ?

No, otherwise I wouldn't be able to get the majority of pre-8th gen games that I do. However I do clean the games when I get them before assimilating them into my collection.



No, sometimes you find a game you want to play and it's already out of print it's nice to have the used alternative.



Nothing to see here, move along

Nope, gotta collect them all !

i wouldnt necessarily put it that way, but i never liked buying used games because the idea that somebody else used it before me is a bit unappealing. somebody else bought it, took the plastic casing off, probably threw the box aside for however long they owned it, used the game for a bit, then returned it. in the past year ive opened up a bit to buying used games just because i found a local retail store that sells them at pretty unbeatable prices. 3DS games that still cost $40 anywhere else could be as low as $25, and some older games getting as low as $10. but still, looking at these games, there is noticeable wear and tear. the box is a bit dinged up, the cartridge sticker will occasionally have something stained on it, and it just doesnt feel like im buying a quality product. as for myself, i buy a game, i put the box on a shelf, if its a 3DS game i put the cart in my carrying case, and nothing bad ever happens to them. and it just feels nice to have all my games of the same like-new quality, so when i do get the occasional used game with even some slight wear and tear, i cant help but cringe at it.

Nowadays I do not buy used games any more. I hate buying a really great game used as the developer makes nothing off it.



Huh? I'm the opposite. I love used games. I'm able to play alot of games I wouldn't be able to or took a risk on.

I've been avoiding anything used lately and when I feel buying a Retro game I buy a Brand New sealed copy like say A sealed copy of chrono trigger for SNES with all its glory. I remember buying A used copy of dead or alive 3ds the box look fine but it definately looked used didn't look brand new . It's extremely hard to find a used game that looks extremely brand new.

I love them. They're dirt cheap and the majority of the time the disc/case is in perfect condition anyway. I've bought a few other the years that haven't had the cleanest cases, but if I'm buying them used like that chances are I'll just sell them on again once I'm done with them so... meh.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

This is one of my idiosyncrasies I guess, all my video games are new, I really don't want to go for second hand.

Also I will not test this but I'm pretty sure my OCD would kick in with second hand material.
