Not anymore. I recently sold off my entire backlog because I realized I was hanging on to game I would never have the time to play.

That's exactly what I did to afford my PS3, was get rid of my PS2/Xbox collection. Surprsingly though, I had actually played 90-95% of them, though some I never made it all the way through and some I was just really put off by since they became less fun to play as I got deeper into the game.

Soul Calibur 3 has stayed sealed on my shelf for a few years now.

I'm actually about to open it this weekend after finally finding out there's a Namco transmission disc hiding in the package as a secret bonus.

Ummm... tons of games of mine are unopen. I buy them at clearance price and just put them there. 24 hour days are just too short!

I have four- one is a Japanese import I bought for the figure it came with (Why open it? I can't play it or read the manual very well). the other 3 I just haven't gotten around to playing yet - Arc the Lad Twlight of Spirits on PS2, GH version Xenogears on PS1, and Zelda Minish Cap on GBA- which I only bought to unload a Kmart gift card. Judging by Ebay, that may have been a smart move- it's seriously tempting to re-buy it used and sell the sealed one...

The distinction that for me is why are they unopened?

I have a few that are unopened as collectors items. Games I really like and want a pristine condition copy.

I don't have any unopened games that I intend to play. When I buy a game I play it, there is no backlog and I don't just impulse buy. Some games I play for only an hour or so and decide they are not worth my time but I play them all.

Currently I only have 1 unopened game, which is Bioshock. I almost always open games right after I buy them.

I have several. I bought GTA 4 upon release, but that very weekend, I had to go out of town for some training, so I figured I would not open/play it because I would likely want to take my 360 with me to Chicago. Upon returning, I ended up buying a few other games and I started dating my current gf, so there went my time!8-)
On the plus side, since I still haven't opened GTA IV and it dropped price, I realized I should not be buying games on release dates. I'm renting now 8-)

Did not vote as I'm kind of in between.

Short answer, no.

I don't often have unopened games outside of a B2GX sale or an otherwise good sale. I'm usually pretty good about playing games when I receive them, except in instances when multiple games are bought at once or I'm saving games for an occasion (i.e. long trips). Like right now, I have FFIV unopened, but only because I'm saving it for a long Thanksgiving drive with family.

thanks to CAG half my games are still sealed. Since I recently decided to finish the games I have open they're gonna stay that way for a bit longer.

This poll should reflect 1-5 unopened vs 10+ unopened. I bought a PS2 for the DVD player and Ace Combat 04 last year.. Since then I've slowly and accidentally built up a PS2 collection because of great clearance deals. So 90% of my PS2 collection (about 20) is sealed.

Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.

I currently have The Orange Box and The Witcher from LAST Christmas. I got spoiled with 5 of the top 10 games from last year, and a new Wii for my girlfriend. Too much to play, so I am behind:cry:. Even worse is I just bought Wii Guitar Hero Aerosmith and World Tour, as well as Crysis Warhead. Happy birthday to me:). Tell your unopened box stories. Oh yeah, I worked 3 jobs this past year. No time to play.

Thanks to CAG, I had quite a few unopened games last winter due to the crap load of sales from Black Friday throughout Christmas. One day I just said Fuck it, opened the unopened games, and played each from 15-30 min.

Ironically, I ended up tradin' in 38 games over the summer with most of those last winter purchases bein' thrown in the pile lol. Impulse buyin' off the strengh of a sale is not a good look for me. No sense in buyin' if I honestly know I'm not goin' to play the game even if I do have free time to play it.

But no, I don't have anymore unopened games...and it will stay that way 8-)

I've got several unopened games, all from Black Friday last year or from Gamestop's Game Days sale this summer. Other than that, I buy about 90% my games used, so I have a TON of opened, but unplayed games.
