Now that this has brought up, I want to know if the game itself differs if its a GH or black label?

Wow. Us soldiers in afganistan have to burn their feces as a way of life and you weirdos freak out over something as trivial as cases. When you die you can't take it with you and all that will remain is a house full of crap.


This is a silly comparison to make. I see your viewpoint but as a collector, uniformity is key. On a broader scope, game cases are of little consequence when the facts of life are brought into the equation. No one would deny that. This, however, is simply a matter of preference. No need for a war of words over something so "trivial", agreed?

In for a copy of Dead Space... really regret passing it up when EA had it for $9.99 a few months back. Don't really care at the GH case thing at this point... I have 3 in my collection due to this past Black Friday. Besides, there's a chance that Amazon may still have old stock of the game -- I ordered Uncharted: Drake's Fortune 6 months after the release of UC2 (and UC's greatest hit release) and I received an original copy of the game.

hmmmm..if I were an OCD collector, and I knew purchasing a game 6 months after release might cause my collection to be tainted by an ugly red case, I would just buy the game earlier.

or I would buy cheap, crappy games (such as 2+ year old sports games) for $1 and swap the cases.

The MW pack is REALLY tempting. My only concern would be replay value as I'm not too into MP. How are the campaigns?

The cover art would still be GH, thus uniformity would still be destroyed. I'm a little crazy about this stuff, but I just can't stand the red cases. For those hoping for an original case, Wal-Mart is pretty much guaranteed to have them if you can find a store that still has any in stock.

COD4's campaign is fucking AWESOME!!! MW2's campaign is really good but its pretty short. MW2 also has Spec Ops Which you can play alone (or split screen) and will a few more hours of play.

really wish the MW saga was on 360 also. I'm not sure why Amazon doesn't stock it. My local Gamestop has it for $50 or $60. I'm looking to pick up MW2, and wouldn't mind getting MW1 as well, loved that game so much.

This is the silliest thread I've seen in awhile lol if someone were truly OCD, they would purchase the game immediately because they would have a list of irrational fears about losing the game: it'll go out of print, I'll only be able to find a gutted copy, what if it's travelled, etc.

So ,no one here really has a collective OCD situation, they're making a choice to keep a collection to a certain standard, it's also a choice you can unmake.

Yes, but there are none in stock through Amazon, just a 3rd party seller. I would jump on this for $34.99 if it were.

I had a roommate who was actually OCD. Among other things everything in his room had to be exactly parallel or perpendicular (he couldn't deal with curved objects, for example), and if you touched him even by accident he might instinctively freak out and punch you pretty hard. It's a crippling disorder if you actually have it.

Which is to say, I agree with you. Very few people here are actually OCD (1 in 50 in the country, so maybe a bit more than that here). Saying "I'm OCD" has become like a cute, accepted way of saying "I have _____ issue and I don't feel like doing anything about it so just accept it." On forums like this one people seem to get a pass when they say "I'm an OCD collector" simply because there are enough of them that it doesn't get stigmatized as much. If someone truly has OCD they should try to get help because it can be a serious thing (the D in OCD doesn't stand for Delightful). The idea that some people are capital-c Collectors and hence any standard they choose is clearly correct and justified is absurd. I have probably 800+ games just from buying and playing over 20 years, including all kinds of greatest hits, platinum hits, player's choice, etc. (some without cases even -- gasp!), and I am sure there are others here who have even more. I guess to some that makes us not Collectors, but ask 99.999% of the population if there is a difference between us and the guys who avoid red packaging and they'll say no.

If you are not into MP why would replay value matter much?

Excellent game indeed..i just finished it around 11-12 hours. Its a mixture of zelda and god of war 3. Most underrated game imo.

It has pretty good scores across the board and everyone I've seen to comment on it loves it. I think people don't understand what underrated means anymore. The ratings and praise for the game can't get much higher.

Considering the MW2 pack, but not 100% on it. If it were at $29.99, I would probably go for it. Just mad I missed out on the $10 deal at gamestop the other day for MW2 :(
