My brother sold my copy of Twisted Metal Black to a friend for like $5, and some others that I didn't care much for. Didn't trust him with my games anymore, there is a reason we don't share accounts or consoles anymore.

never stolen from, however, ive let people borrow games enough times to learn my lesson about letting other people use my stuff. had a friend once who borrowed a Pokemon game from me. when he returned it the master ball was used, all the post game events i was waiting to play were finished, and several of my main team pokemon had their movesets changed. he wasnt even trying to be a jerk when he did it, he was fully conscious of all his actions.

Why would you lend somebody a game with only one save file though? That just sounds like a really bad idea, like he could have completely deleted your save in order to start his own even.

 

As for the topic, nope nobody has stolen any from me.

i knew him well enough to know he wouldnt do that. he was the type to rarely see the true value in a game. 90% of the time he would get his fill from using cheat codes or cheating devices to get the best stats, weapons, whatever each game had to offer, refusing to put any actual effort into anything. in games such as Minecraft or Terraria, he would often buy the game months after the rest of our friend group had and then just demand we give him a bunch of hand-me-down equipment instead of actually playing the game he had just spent money on. his motto was simple- "why would you want to work for it when you can just get it the easy way." of course he wasnt going to delete my save file, that would mean he would have to actually work to get to the point in the game i was at. 



not stolen, but gived away 3 of my best games to a friend to receive one from him...this must have game??? it was FF VI i felt in love😉



My cousin let me borrow a game back in the 90s and my next door neighbor asked to borrow it from me for a day. When I went to get it back he said "It's gone, okay!". I felt pretty shitty about that.

I loaned and bought a lot of games for my little sister during the Xbox 360 generation. Mostly games like Dance Dance Revolution or Street Fighter IV when I'd buy a better version. One day we were going to play Peggle and we discovered that all of her game cases were empty. She rarely played so there was no idea when the games were taken but I have my guesses who took them and why.

Once, one of my brother’s prick friends break into our house and steal my 360 and NDS back in early 2007, as well as the games

Yeah I did. Like many of those here,I made the mistake of trusting too much and let a """"friend""" borrow my Tekken 3, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Digimon World for PS1. The only time he spoke to me again he tried to convince me he had gave me back the games (he did not). Bastard...

I almost lost Twilight Princess (Wii) the same way. After 5 or 6 months, I had to pay the bastard a visit and explain to his mother what was happening. She grounded him for one whole month and clearly beated him up. After that, he was all angry at me with a "you traitor" attitude, but I couldn't care less. If he wasn't malicious, that wouldn't happen. Btw, never talked to him after that. Zelda means life to me, so better not play with fire or you'll pay. mwahahahahaha xD



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

What a shitty person... I hope you have made suggestions to the police to investigate =p

This guy seems like those movie vilains that attack you with 20 people and call you a coward, and when they try to kill your family and you kill one of them they swear they will kill you for revenge... must be one of those guys that think that they are the protagonist of their own story =p

Interesting topic. The Humans on Game Boy, the year was 1992. It was a bus band trip to Austin for a State Marching Band contest, 8 hour bus ride in which we were mainly holding Tetris battles. You could connect the Game Boys together and as long as each person had a Tetris game you could link the Game Boys together and 2 player Tetris. Anywho, we would exchange games with each other and I ended up short.



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

I left my Wii Games back at home when I moved out. I went back a year later and my copy of Skyward Sword was nowhere to be found. Who knows what happened to it.
