The NPD just completed a survey and found that 11% of gamers own unopened games. I've got a feeling that CAG's percentage will be significantly higher.

I'd be surprised if more than a small handful on CAG say that they don't.

I'll predict it's completely opposite here....89% of us do.

I think I have one or two unopened games, but for the most part I open my games when I get them.

Nope. If I buy it I want to at least pop it in and see what it's about. I may put it down until later but I've got to at least load it up!

I do not have a single sealed game. I NEVER go buy games to put in a backlog. I buy a game when I want to play it and I play it until I get tired of it and usually never play it again sans a few specific games.

Presently I do have some backlog games still sealed, but with all the recent talk about sealed games with no disc in them...... I'll probably start opening them as soon as I get get them!

I have seven unopened games. Of those seven, I'll probably never play five of them.

I currently have no unopened games because i buy so few games so the ones i do buy i play.
But unopened music CDs and DVDs, that's a whole other story.
I buy a lot of them and i keep them for collection purposes.

All of mine are open.

I only buy games I have time to play.

There could be a difference between gamers though. Some people collect, and some people own only big titles (Madden, Halo, etc.).

I have plenty of unopen games, and I will never find enough time (and patience) to play all of them. Although, I try now only to buy games that I will play for sure.

Way too many. Off the top of my head I have 3 PS2 games, 1 XBox game, 1 Gamecube Game, 2 DS games, 2 PSP games, 3 PS3 games, 4 Wii games all unopened. Some of those I had to buy even if I knew they would go in the backlog because you will never see them at those prices again. Like Starfox DS and NiGHTS Wii for $5.00 each at KMart last month.

I give each game I buy a spin to make sure they work when I buy them. I do however have a dozen games that I've never taken past the title screen.

Earlier this summer, I had two 360 titles sealed (PES 2008, GRID) thanks to COD 4 and more recently, GTA 4. So I thought I had everything covered. Then I noticed that I have Max Payne 2 for Xbox! Never, ever, EEVVEERR, touched.

Hey Cheapy, please don't do a poll on unopened and/or unwatched dvd's....:whee:

I've got several unopened. Far too many, actually.

I have 10 all on the 360 but two of those are LE that I will never open. The LE are Bioshock and Mass Effect.

So far, I can only count about 4-5 unopened for me:

*Psychonauts(Xbox)-it was $3 from Kmart, meant to finish playing it, but I packed away my Xbox a while ago
*Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer(PS3)-normally, I would NEVER buy a movie game, but for $5 from Kmart, anything is worth a shot.
*TimeShift(PS3)-yet another $5-10 game from Kmart that I'm sure I'll play SOMETIME, but not anytime soon with my increasing backlog on PS3.
*.hack Redemption(PS2)-yet another $5 game from Kmart....which I only picked up for the collectibility of it.....
*Marvel Ultimate Alliance(non Platinum Hits)(Xbox)-I picked this up since it was $5 as well at Kmart, though I had already picked up and opened a Platinum Hits copy from Target for $5.

I also had the original Legends Of Wrestling and Batman Begins and Darkwatch for Xbox, but I got sick of seeing them collecting dust and I gave them to my one buddy for him(BB and D) and his one niece(LOW) to play.

Now, if we were talking about opened but never completed games.....geez...I could be here till Doomsday talking about all of my prior gen stuff I never played through completely(and sold off).

I may skew the numbers a bit as I voted that I have no unopened games.
I do not have now as nearly everything that I have bought over the past 3 years has been used.
However, when I lived in the US, I had a crapload of unopened games. I sold everything when I moved to Japan though.

I dug through my gaming area and found Darkness 360 and Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations wrapped.

Nope, I buy only what I want to play. I'm not a collector, games are meant to be played and enjoyed. Just like toys and action figures. I won't let them just sit there collecting dust in their original packages.
