This year was the time to start cleaning out the 'stuff' that has been carried around for multiple moves, stored in boxes in lockers, closets and under beds.
The associate of value to a collection has been hard to put into context. The value of a game should be enjoyment that is produced by it. Does a game still have value sitting unused in it's original shrink wrap in boxes stored in a cool dry place?
I've decided that for me it does not, so I became a hypocrite on the 'used games' debate and decided to sell off nearly all my physical games. I comforted the hypocrisy with the fact that most of the titles are not for sale new anywhere. A bout a hundred were listed on Amazon to sell, but this pile of games was not so lucky.
A dozen or so are still sealed in original wrapping with price tags from number shops, some dated back more than a decade ago. I have played about half of them, finished almost none of them. The games, have no physical value, $0.01 to at best $5 not worth the cost of shipping supplies and time to package.
To the posters here that have large spacious collections of games, I ask:
"Why do you hold on to them?"
"Do you keep ones you have absolutely no intention of every playing again?"
