If they do not warrant a second play through ( which most do not anymore ). They go to the 
ISLAND  OF UNWANTED GAMES 
Never to be played again.....................

I trade in the games that was good but not great, and those I don't really want in my collection.

If a game was something I consider great, want to show off, or something I want to go back to eventually I'll keep the game. If I didn't feel satisfied during my quest to beat the game, it goes to GameStop/Play N Trade/Goozex for use towards new games or games to fill in holes in my collection.

I generally don't have the time to play a narrative driven game again, so I'll sell them or lend them to friends. I'm not much of a collector.

i sell the games i really don't like, though it's rare that i'd buy a game unless i have some preconception that it'll be my kind of thing. 
So basically games that are highly praised and hyped that i buy and become really disappointed in; they get sold.

I used to trade them in towards new games. One night I got a serious urge to re-play Condemned 2, which I had traded in. I went out, bought it for a second time, and decided to keep every game I buy.

@Marcsman: Like in that Rudolph movie, except all the video games are singing instead of a creepy jack-in-the-box and elephant. Strange. 
 
I trade the games that are no longer of any use to me and I never regret the decision. I dislike hoarding things.

I usually sell them once I'm done with them. No point in keeping them sitting around when I can sell them for cash and buy new games.

If it's something like inFAMOUS or Dante's Inferno that I know I will never play again then I try to sell it on kijiji.ca, Other wise it goes on my shelf and sits there.

In the past i kept all my games, i had over 100 at one point for the xbox alone but after i lost my job and most of my possesions including my house/games collection and consoles i vowed never to hold on to all the games again. i regret not taking them from the house before the landlord evicted me but i had nowhere to keep them at the time.

I keep every game I buy. The good ones I display, the bad ones I toss in the closet or on some pile of games somewhere else.

I've been keeping them for the past few years. I couldn't bring myself to sell anymore since I always regretted it.

I sell the ones that are god-awful or kinda dull. I keep the ones that I could see myself going back to.

Unless it's a game a despise, like Guitar Hero 5, I always keep them and put them on my bookshelf.

Depends. 
 
Since I buy a lot of games, I tend to only keep those that i'll want to play with again. This amount juggles between eight and thirteen games per year that will stay in my active collection. I won't ever keep games for the sake of collection, only for active entertainment.

They usually just sit on my shelf. It's a waste to sell a game back.

I occassionally sell games I have finished or probably won't bother finishing, but in general you don't get much for a used game, so I keep most of them. B was the answer closest to what I do, but in general I don't even sell games I disliked - I might try them again some day, and in many of the cases where I sold games I didn't think were that great, I've regretted it afterwards.

I never sell any of my games in case I want to go back to them and play them another time. As soon as I'm done with them they go right back on the shelf (or stack).

For most of my games, when they are finished with both of the Single Player and when I get bored with the Online modes, they are sold back to Gamestop. That way, it helps pay for the next batch of games that I purchase. Several games, even when I do everything there is to do on it and get tired of the MP modes, I stash them on my bookshelf with the few games that I keep after beating them.

Depending on my stance on said game I either eat it or bury it in a plot in the back. 
 
But really I've barely sold any of my games, I guess I'm just the collector type.

I keep pretty much every one, which I don't see myself doing forever. I don't see myself making a significant amount of room for them.

I stick them in the games binder and come back to them 6-18months later. Always give it another play through after some time has passed, almost always fun again.

Put it away on my shelf. I never sell my games because I usually go back to playing them eventually.
