you know, not everyone views games as an investment or a flip.
He had games he wasn't gonna play anymore and traded them in. Whatever he paid for them originally is irrelevant.
Yeah, I never bought a single game for flip or profit, just cause I love games. But it got to a point that I had to many and I told myself enough, so I had to clear most of them out and get rid of them. If I don't have time to play the games I really do want to play, I should discard anything else that has a mild or lower interest for me.
Well it is really only a loss if you plan to play the games. It is like any other collectible except these usually go down in value. Getting $700 today for games that will just collect dust is a win in my book. I am trying hard to get past collecting games and just playing them.
Yeah, as stated above, these were now in my mind just collecting dust, or will continue to collect dust. I had a very nice collection, especially on 360 games. At one point I had every single FPS, RPG, 3rd person shooter on the 360. I still have over 100 games left though, so its not like I am at a need now for games, just decided to concerntrate on those I really want to play, since my time is limited, and eliminate everything else.
Just curious, how long did that take? Some of the vets cashiers have done my 10+ stacks in less than 5 mins
It took like 30 minutes at the store. Took 3 employees though. My first trade-in two month ago was over 120 games, that took like 60+ minutes for one guy alone. All my games were in great condition too, case, manual and discs all in mint condition, so that made it easier for them I guess.
