So I was looking at boxed copies of DuckTales on ebay today (don't ask), and I came across a copy of DuckTales 2 in a plastic bag. It was a "VGA Graded" copy, apparently graded an eighty-five. The guy selling it had posted it for a little less (like a dollar) than two-thousand dollars. That's a lot of money to pay for a game you won't be able to play. Seriously, does anyone think that games need to be "slammed"? I think games need it so much less than comic books, because a game is something you can play more than once and have a different experience each time. I'm a little disappointed in this, but I guess people will pay for anything these days. No I'm not disappointed in this, this is the next logical step for game collecting. However, games are meant to be played more than comic books are meant to be read. Actually, they are about the same in their meaning. I don't know, I'm just really upset that someone would lock a game away beneath several layers of plastic. What do you, the Giant Bomb forum, think?
Here's their website if you want to get something slammed so you can never play it again.
