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....


Well I'd rather not sell a game I enjoyed for so little and then end up buying it again in the future. There are a few dozen games I wouldn't mind trading or selling, which is why I have that tradelist.

None! WOOT. I did unwrap and play DMC4 until the 4th level, but then stopped. It's just sitting there until I'm 100% done with Ninja Gaiden 2.

Um, zero. I buy games to play them and I only buy more if I don't have anything new to play. I'll never understand why people buy so many games that they can't get to them all. I'd rather have money in my pocket than a game on my shelf.

My reasoning is this... all the games I have in my "backlog" are games that were what I considered incredibly good deals for brand new games that I couldn't pass up. I got Bully for $14.99 new, DiRT for $20, Flatout for $5, The Godfather for $8, etc, etc. I'll eventually play all of them but I don't currently have the time to play them. You may find that odd, but I enjoy playing and collecting games and if I see a great deal on a game its hard to pass up.

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


sure, by the time I beat MGS4 im sure MGS6 will be in production :lol:
as if I didnt have enough to deal with playing TF2, COD4, Battlefield:BC, and UT3. Now you guys have dragged me kicking and screaming into GOW multiplayer,
and this is with COD:WaW, Left 4 Dead, Legendary, and GoW2 just around the corner.

Sealed, i have:
-Odin Sphere
-Contact
-Children of Mana
-Enclave
-Burnout 3
-SSX On Tour
-Nfl Head Coach
-Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble
-Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
-One of the ../hack games, 3 i think, those names are so damn long

And then, for some reason, i also have a bunch of games that were new, i opened them, and i still havent played them: Super Mario Galaxy, No More Heroes, Oddworld: Munch's oddysey, Magical Starsign, Blue Dragon, Baten Kaitos: Origins, Persona 3: Fes, Overlord, probably a few more i can't remember now. I have a lot more that I've bought used and haven't played, something like 50+.

EDIT: Well, today, i went to two stores i haven't been to in a while (Circuit city and TRU) and ended up with 3 more sealed games i won't play for a while. MGS 3-$5, Samurai Warriors 2-$8, and Nights: Journey of Dreams, $14. So i guess i'm up to 13.

Well if you have 0 games unopened then I think there is something wrong with you. I thought most CAGs would have at least one, since this is a deals site and a good deal is so hard to pass up sometimes.
Thanx everyone for your votes, it's been an interesting discussion so far.

The poll and answers on this thread seem to indicate that there's a divide on the issue. Several of us have sealed games out the yin yang while the other half have very few sealed games. Another good question for another thread would be how big everyone's backlog is.

I have over 200 games, easily that I have yet to open and play. These are games for the PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP, Xbox, Xbox 360, Gamecube, Wii, DS Lite, Dreamcast. Too many to list them individually.

I never really leave them in the shrink wrap. The Metal Gear collection still is because I've got all those standalone (pretty much bought it solely as a collector's item), but I've got like maybe 10 games I have yet to play. Some really big name titles that I'm too ashamed to admit.

I buy alot of games used, so I'm counting the ones I haven't played yet as "new". I have two games that are officially new and un-opened (Just Cause, Condemned 2), and I have about 12 or more used "new" games that I have yet to play.

No, we just have self control. Some of us can pass up a good deal if we already have enough games to play.

139 at last count (some are multiple copies). I tend to keep them sealed until I want to play it, then I see what they are selling for online, and then buy a opened one if I can get it for under $4 shipped (and keep the sealed one sealed). I have a problem.

I had 11 sealed copies of FF7, but I am down to one sealed copy. I think I have a couple of sealed SOTN, but I had 6. I still have 15 Parappa the Rapper sealed and 4 or 5 medievil.

Used to be in the 20's - now i'm down to about 8 or so...been REALLY concentrating on taking it one game at a time lately. I've even returned a few games that I got good deals on because I knew I wouldn't get around to playing them in 2008.

I also thought the nine was a bit funny.

I'm sitting at 52 unopened of 79. Just haven't gotten around to playing them. Always working to make more money. There's lots of movies out there to be had. Buying video games takes second priority over movies.

I think I should start a new poll and see how many games people have not played. Seems as though there are quite a few out there in the hundreds.

I think I've just got 1 that is still in the plastic: The World Ends With You (DS).

Like many other CAGs though, I still have a ton of games that I haven't played yet (many bought used or traded). Probably around 15-20, if you count 360, Wii, and all last-gen games. :/ At times I tell myself that I'm not buying another game until I finish what I have, but that never works out, haha.

There's always that pressure to buy what just came out, what everyone else is playing at the time. Sometimes it's worth it--to be able to have fun with your friends in full servers. Somehow it feels more meaningful (at least to me) to play/beat a game right when it comes out. And I don't really know why. A lot of times though, you're better off just waiting for a price-drop or until you're ready to actually play the game.
