It is pretty shitty to buy 30 copies of a game and throw everything besides the cases away. That's the "consume consume consume I'm only in it for me" mentality, though. You slickdeals, Trump supporting kiddies buy up as many copies of SSBM and Fire Emblem as you can to resell on eBay to subsidize your retail wages all the time. Not to mention that people in here fight with me in PC threads way too often. "Oh, much cheaper games on a machine that doubles as a workstation if I could only detach myself from suckling on Xbox Elite titties? Sounds dumb!"  :roll:

I use old sports games as drink coasters. Always have and always will.  I was using a Jordan vs Bird cartridge (Genesis) as a coaster but my pint glass of the 'Devil's Juice' kept toppling off the side.

PS: I love me some Elite titties!  Can't get enough of them.

Sir, you're being selfish. You should be using those coasters as a means to preserve our precious earth. Oh, they were going to be thrown in a landfill anyhow? Well, touche' then...

Also, why can't enjoy all kinds of titty? Not sure why one type of titty is better than the others. They're all fun in my book.

Sometimes, one disc must sacrifice its home and life for another.  Let us have a moment of silence for these brave, unselfish discs.

 

And If anyone is to blame for this atrocity, it's Gamestop and their barbaric ritual of throwing away the cases.  They shove the discs into a yellow envelope forcing them to live like a homeless man in a cardboard box.

With Goo Gone you have to get most of the sticker off first (at least that's how I do it to save my Goo Gone, because I'm cheap).  That's the tough part with these holograms.  With the paper GS stickers, you can get them off easily with water, then Goo Gone (the newer ones just peel right off completely).  These aren't always as easy.  Some come right off w/o using any water or chemicals.  Others are almost impossible.

Just easier to swap the cases with games you don't care for, or ones you may end up selling/trading in. I take a look at my collection before I do any trades and see if I can swap out bad cases with good ones.

People inherently do what they can do help themselves. I would love $20 copies of melee, but I know that won't happen. So I will take what I can get, which is a number of cases for a few bucks. Yeah it basically sucks, but oh well. Note, I am not saying you should not be upset by this behavior. I am just trying to not care because it's never going to change and it will only get more common place. /shrug

What? No.

All I'm saying is it's kind of a dick move to buy up a game of a series that people love and they don't make anymore, just for the cases and to toss the games, I dont care if it goes for 25¢ or $250.

And you even said yourself, hundreds if not thousands will get destroyed anyway. So why add to that, knowing they aren't making anymore and were losing more every day?

I dont care if you guys disagree, I know you guys are collectors here, part of me is, but first and foremost I'm a preservationist.

I'm still not 100% sure that you're not trolling us. If you are serious, there probably would have only been half a dozen or so posts about buying cheap cases. Now this debate has dragged on for pages and I'd bet more and more people are buying up cheap cases. The topic is getting more and more exposure on this thread. 

 

If you care so much about preservation you're perfectly free to start up your own repository of old sports games for posterity.

I don't know anyone that even plays-- much less collects-- old versions of these yearly updates. Sports titles are as close to consumable as games get. I think both the market and the gaming community agree, or we wouldn't be buying them for pennies on the dollar. They simply would not sell if they weren't available for these fire sale prices; they'd get junked anyway.

It just seems like a silly stand to take. You might have a point if we were talking about, say, arcade games, which are prone to failure and abandoned or scrapped when not cost effective to repair.

In our own way, those of us who buy these for the cases are preserving the games these cases are to be used for, for future players. We're not gonna live forever, and I think someone 20, 40, 60 years from now would appreciate a nice looking Yakuza, Rogue Galaxy, or even Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter more than a couple extra copies of a widely available, mass-produced roster update. 

I don't toss the games anyway. I donate them to Goodwill in inferior cases... which will more than likely toss them when they don't sell after months on shelves.

I like the idea of donating them to Goodwill in inferior cases. I'll do that at some point. I trade with other collectors I've met on xbox live. I've asked if they want me to throw in these old sports games in the box of trades. Usually they already have them, but sometimes they take them off my hands. 

 

I agree with everything you said including nice looking Yakuza, Rogue Galaxy, or even Mace Griffin. I would just also like to add that 20, 40, or 60 years from now, there won't be a problem still finding NCAA 2004. I can't claim to know the future. I believe they will be somewhat similar to the countless Atari 2600 games that can be bought for under five dollars. But because CAG's threw out less than 50 copies, the prices will be something like $5.25 instead of $5.00.

Yeah well another note for collectors, people who actually like sports games might have interest in the actual NCAA games themselves since they don't make them anymore. Its not a current franchise anymore, so I would think twice about being some ignorant asshole thinking to buy them up for the cases and throw around the discs like they make a new one every year.

Yes I know 06 is a bit old and it went up to 14, but still, I would just keep in mind it isn't a current series anymore.

I think the games you play like Lego Dimensions, Call of Duty, etc. are shitty, but I don't make posts boasting about it. I'll gladly start to if you want to play that game, though.

It's a bad day, need to send email to CS for 3 orders.

 

Ordered  a game PS4 and they shipped me XBONE. The one I ordered was Like New Factory Sealed, if I order another one current available is Like New but doesn't say it's sealed. What's the odd it will be sealed (there is DLC code included)?

 

The other 2 orders said delivered today (same package), but no package showed up, which was supposed to be delivered by "AMZN US"

I have security camera at front door which showed only the USPS mailman dropped off that wrong game package, nothing else.

 

I haven't had any issue with Amazon orders for years, but already 3 issues in these 2 months with Warehouse.

CAG has officially turned into SD and anti deals, fishing for money.

 

Amazing how they keep posting games that are continuously dropping in price on Amazon trying to gain clicks...which in turn makes the game stop dropping and instead raise in price.

Just because something says factory sealed, doesn't mean it's a brand new item. Odds are it was sealed by their factory. There is no guarantee that dlc codes will work, let alone be included when buying used. Just an added bonus if it works.

So, you meant Amazon resealed the game and then sell it as factory sealed? Isn't that a fraud.

The wrong XBONE copy I got was indeed factory sealed, not only it's plastic wrapped as done by factory, the white sealing sticker with barcode is there and not broken. PlayStation should do something like that so people know no one has stolen any bonus code included.

And the CS replied and told me keep the wrong copy and I will get the refund as well... some frustration, but I considered the case resolved.
