I'm curious to know how many games people have they haven't cracked the cellophane on.
I always seem to have 3-4 games I haven't played. I still have some from Christmas I haven't gotten around to playing.

Far far too many to count but at least they only go back to the last generation (Xbox, Gamecube, PS2). Although, I'm getting to the point where I'm starting not to care about them and am considering trading some of the in *shudders* or selling them on eBay or CAG since I've become much more focused and interested in the current gen games that I've been playing online with CAGs.

None. I almost always immediately open them upon receiving them. Problem is, I end up spending so little time with them since I have so many.

None.

1 unplayed game (Oblivion) but I got it off Goozex so it's not wrapped. I swore off big backlogs a long time ago. Won't let my self have more than 1-2 games sitting untouched on the shelf. I'll quit buying until I get through them.

None. I have a few that have never really been played. But I usually open them all up, or buy them used in the first place.

I just sold my sealed copy on eBay for $20 without ever playing it. Not too shabby!

Unless you're a super busy person or given an unexpected game as a present, I fail to see how this can ever happen to a gamer.

Only one as most games I've got have already been open.

Funny thing is, I've only played 5 of my 17 games though.

None. I don't see how people can buy games and just let them sit there. Even if I have a lot of other stuff to play, I always pop a new game in just to check it out.

Why is there no option for 0? Why would you ever buy a game if you're not going to play it? Even if I don't play it much I play every single game I get as soon as I get it.

Digital distribution is the death of the preservation of the arts.

There should be a zero option. But I have Mass Effect and I haven't put that much time into it. That's about it.

I usually find games on clearance or a good deal, but I am too anal to stop a game (unless it is boring) thus they await in queue until I have the proper amount of time to invest

Well I always open all my games regardless if Im planning on playing them or not. The two that come to mind though are Call of Duty 4 and Grand Theft Auto IV. I did open them and played it a few minutes just to try it out but havent played them since. I've had CoD 4 since mid June and GTA IV I got when it was released so they have just been sitting there since then.

I'm at 9+ but the more important number is the games I have yet to play in my collection, which is probably at 20-30 out of 130 games.

11, here's the list...

:gc: Viewtiful Joe 2
:360: All-Pro Football 2K8
:360: Forza Motorsport 2
:360: Virtua Tennis 3
:360: Call of Duty 3
:360: Top Spin 2
:360: Fuzion Frenzy 2
:360: The Godfather
:360: DiRT
:360: Flatout Ultimate Carnage
:360: Bully Scholarship Edition

If I added in the games I have opened but haven't yet played/played enough the list would be absurdly long, probably another 15 games.

I used to be this way, but I managed to catch up. I've basically played everything I have, with the exception of like two games. I got Heavenly Sword via goozex and I haven't even put it in the system yet. I got Assassin's Creed for Christmas and I barely even got into that before it gathered dust on my shelf. I too blame COD4 multiplayer for this problem.

Oh, and Khondor you really need to play Uncharted. Its a great game. That is, whenever you get a chance to beat MGS4.

Do you even really like most of the games? I don't understand why people collect games...just to collect....what's the point?

I honestly can't think of 130 games on the 360 worth playing, not to rag on the 360 or anything. In fact I doubt I can think of 130 games worth playing when all of the current gen systems are in the equation....

Pretty much a ton of them. I just noticed yesterday that I have unopened copies of Syphon Filter 1 and 2, sitting on a shelf. Oh well. They'll stay fresher that way in case I ever decide to play a 3rd person shooter that has been surpassed in every measurable way.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

All right. This is starting to get on my nerves. Why is it acceptable to collect books, movies, comic books, coins, stamps, action figures, hats, shoes, cars, girls, or anything else in this world except for video games? Games are fun to collect because they're fun to play. It's fun to collect things that you like. It's kind of the point of collecting anything. Why make fun of something that people like to do? Does it hurt you in anyway? Do my stack of games cause you pain in anyway? If not, shut the Fuck up. I'm tired of people constantly whining about people collecting games when we're on a site called Cheap Ass Gamer.

People looked at baseball cards as a horrible thing to collect but many cards from the 50s are very valuable now because not enough people treated them like collectibles. Now, a Mickey Mantle rookie card can command five figures at auction. A Honus Wagner T-206 goes for much more.

One reason I have so many games sealed is because I like to pick up clearance games even if I don't have the time to play them now. I'd much rather spend $8 on a game that I'm going to play in six months than spend $30 to run around and find an out of print game that no one has cheap. If it's still in my collection a year later, it goes on my trading list. If it doesn't get traded, I give it as a present or sell it on craigslist. Why is it a big deal if I like to collect games anyway?

Zero, once I get the game I open it and play it.

Mass Effect-- I don't know why, it's a great game.
Shadow of the Colossus-- I re-bought it.
Oblivion: Shivering Isles-- GF gave it to me, then my PS3 broke and I lost my 60 hours:bomb: of Oblivion and all of my interest in the game.
