I just gave you a real world observation. It happens to be true. It doesn't mean that all people who trade in games are stupid. It just means that more stupid people have that sensibility.

I can see you don't want to follow what I'm posting so why are you asking questions? If you want answers feel free to PM me. Otherwise get back to the thread topic. I wasn't trolling anyone. I was giving real world advice. If you don't like it move along.

When I was in college I worked at a Game Stop for a couple months as one of those turrible "managers" and let me tell you the people that trade stuff in tend to be less than intelligent.

As for hording I move probably once every two years. If that's hording capable I must be awesome at lifting things. Laughing

I can see from the insults that most of you do trade your stuff in. Good for you enjoy the squalor that follows.


So the theory is this: If you trade in games you are unintelligent and can't afford things.

Not once did you offer advice.

Why would people follow what you've said? If they can get value for something they own but no longer want, then what is the point of keeping it?

If you bought a car in 2003, had it for 8 years, and decided to get a new one...do you just keep that car, and buy the new one, or do you sell/trade that car and help pay for the new one?

You weren't trolling...Just being ignorant and throwing out subtle personal attacks.

Moving on...

I think you need to learn how to use a venn diagram.

See that's the issue you fail to understand what I was saying. willfully stretching the concept.

If you buy a game that you're not that interested in why bother purchasing it to begin with?

I don't use playstation games any more. By the time I stopped using them they were basically worth what a coaster is worth. Is that so difficult?

Maybe you can understand that purchasing something that you will use longer than 12 hours is wiser than something that you get bored with in a day.

I fully understand that you're not dumb enough to think all people who trade in games are unintelligent, but the way you word things is pretty silly.

The above quote is just silly.


If you have something laying around that you aren't going to play, it's only common sense to get something for it. And it is not "leveraging", since you don't have to pay anyone back.


People probably can't afford games because they are not intelligent and don't make a good living, so they trade in, so that's pretty obvious. But why even bring this up on a public forum where you don't even know anyone? I used to trade in games all the time because I never wanted to pay the full price and tried to save money, even though I can easily go and buy stuff on release day for full price. I haven't paid full price for a game, unless it was in the $20 range after drops, for many many years.

Oh and BTW, Steam has Dead Rising 2 for $20 and Resident Evil 5 for $15 until Monday. Very Happy

Who says when you trade a game in, it means you weren't that interested in it? Is it wrong to trade in The Show 10, when I just purchased The Show 11?

The issue is you are easily disinterested in something you were apparently preferring to trade the last thing you were easily disinterested in and another $20 for.

It's a cycle of vague interest that costs you money and nets you nothing. Congratulations. I buy fewer things but the ones I do buy I enjoy thoroughly. If you don't understand the statement I was making that's fine. Enjoy your day.

Steam deals are pretty sick. Near Christmas again I'm hoping they have some of the nasty stuff they put out last year. I think I spent four months on the 2k pack I got for 70 bucks. That was so much stuff.

The return for a sports game is terrible unless something has changed in the last few years. That netted you what $3?

There were a few cases of that, but if you read my posts here you'd know I'm pretty selective. The only way this costs me money is if I keep buying games and trading them in in 2-3 weeks, which (admit it, it's obvious) is what you generalize when we're talking about trade ins.

Most of my trade ins were old XBOX and PS2 games that I regretted not trading in earlier to get more money, so I ended up getting $10-20 drops for a bulk of them. Vicious cycle, eh? Cost me a lot of money by sitting in my closet collecting dust.

See, this is where you are wrong. The only better solution to trading in an old sports game is selling it to someone on eBay or something. Other than that, how is it a loss, even if you get $1? Unless you're assuming it's better to keep old sports games and play them instead of laying new ones, which is a completely personal preference and has no relevance at all.

The Madden franchise in general is a complete ripoff. If you're buying current you're just feeding the crap fest.

Trading in games is generally not a great choice imo. Unless there is an awesome trade-in promotion, I tend to just sell/trade on craigslist. Im also looking into trying to sell on ebay.

Even if it was just $3, I would never play that game again. I thoroughly enjoyed that game for a year, but a newer better product came out, so I chose to go with that. I fail to see what's wrong in this case.
