Why are coomlectors so eager to line their shelves with mediocre games or complete crap? Why waste the money? A small collection of games you actually like is way more pleasing to own and says more about you as a person than a wall of horseshit sports and movie games etc. ever could.

At what point does a collection become a hoarding disorder?
>>2713 The point when you spend money on a video game.

>>2715 >just keep it digital bro good goy
>>2716 If you buy digital you're even more retarded, it's all bits and bytes anon you can just download them.
>>2717 Nigger they literally blackholed 8ch and kiwifarms off the internet on a whim. They have full control over all the bits and bytes. They can just alter/delete anything they don't like. Save everything physical.
>>2718 >what are checksums or known good rips Once it's on your computer you can do what you want with it anon, a physical copy will eventually degrade, you can duplicate a cracked digital game an effectively infinite number of times.
>>2719 >they literally blackholed 8ch and kiwifarms off the internet on a whim. u wot? Josh won and kun still exists for what that's worth. They aren't gods anon, there's always a way around their BS.

>>2721 >Josh won Lol. Troonfarms is literally on the verge of deletion every single week. >kun still exists for what that's worth So literally nothing? It's a Qanon site now. >They aren't gods anon They have the turn off button, anon. The place you download it from? Gone in an instant. The place you talk about it? Gone in an instant. >there's always a way around their BS By saving everything physical. >Once it's on your computer you can do what you want with it anon So can they. Any operating system after Windows 7 is spyware. And they're fast at restricting anyone with W7 and below.

>>2723 >on the verge of deletion every single week. True that but until they kill Josh or something his autism will probably keep things going, shit has hit the fan for Kiwi at least every few years but even with a massive media campaign and numerous backend providers no longer providing services it's still not down for the count. Not to forget all the other places working the fields (including this one). >It's a Qanon site now. Which is the part of the site that led to them going after 8ch, and yet they didn't even manage to kill their main target. >The place you download it from? Gone in an instant. The place you talk about it? Gone in an instant. No biggie anon, I remember countless warez sites of yore that have since died, there's always some guy with a VPS or access to file hosting services ready to spin up yet another. Other protocols like torrents and tor are also available and robust as ever. >By saving everything physical. Physical media can be tampered with too, for example you could end up buying a dodgy reproduction of a game. If it's your only copy and it dies then you're fucked. >Any operating system after Windows 7 is spyware. They backported the Windows 10 telemetry to 7 and 8 years ago, anyway that sounds like a proprietary OS problem, and there's always air-gapping if you're really paranoid.
>>2713 When it goes beyond any "one" thing: one series, one developers, one console etc.
Reminder that if you buy games like Earthbound for 300$, you're a fucking idiot. The Japanese are laughing at you while buying Mother 2 for 25 bucks.
It is never ogre anons, a mix of both digital and physical media stock can serve as a true library of alexandria for vidya. I personally store extra copies of roms on HDDs and SD cards.
>>3322 you need a lot of money for all that tho
>>3325 Not if you are thrifty like me anon. Hard drives and disks aren't that expensive in general tbh.
>>3327 >Hard drives and disks aren't that expensive in general tbh Most anons are poorfag neets, especially the most pro-active ones.
Some "mediocre", or merely under-talked games from back in the day, are pretty good to great compared to shit nowadays in their core gameplay aspect. Obviously not all of them but you would be surprised, in pic related i can't speak for them but some dollar bin games were legitimately good. No i won't say i don't want them scalped but if you ask me i might probably say. >horseshit sports Pretty dumb thing to say, Gen 5 and 6 had the best xtreme sports games out there by far. >movie games Not that dumb but still retarded to say without knowing. >>3304 >The Japanese are laughing at you while buying Mother 2 for 25 bucks. Not like you can learn japanese in one year, dummy. But yeah 300 dollars is a travesty.

Dr. anon, I'm video gamer.
>>4284 Why do normalfaggots always plaster neon all over their "gayming rooms"?
>>4286 Either that or its like a free-masonic lodge where children get sacrificed.
>>4293 what did he mean by this?
>>4286 attracted to flashy things like niggers
>>4286 Because it's not about playing vidya so much as being part-or all- of their personality because it's popular. So they dress it up to look as flashy as possible.
>>4655 it's not like they do it themselves, they just pay money to some firm, hence why all these rooms look the same

>>5535 >has PS2 and PS1 games >bought PS4 games why
>>6558 Because it's about being a pikeme gurl gaymer, not about actually playing video games.
>>6588 then she wouldn't have bought ps1 and ps2 games and just the ps4 games and the whatever current shit

lmao normalfags
>>6619 how hard is it to just print that stupid label and put it on a new cartridge, those glossy stickers you can put in any inkjet printer cost nothing
>>6619 >$3000 >$8000 >wasted on a game >of course it's Soyda Jesus fucking Christ, you can feed an entire African nation using these money. A child died somewhere because this soy redditor had to buy the least rare video game in existence for $8000. Talk about bamboozling the idiots.
>>6622 >niggers are dying because of collector chads Holy fuck now I'm rooting for them, go collect em all you heroic fellows.
>>6626 Soyjaks are saving the White Race!

lol
>>8289 Tits or GTFO.
>>8289 Lmao thank God this happened.
>>6619 I still have my original cartridge of Majora’s Mask. It’s the gold cartridge version and its in good condition. Should I sell it online to one of these faggots? I could really use 10K Dollars in my life.
>>8372 If you really need the cash, then sure. It depends on whether you care about the game or not. If you do, then you'll regret it, but if not - time to bamboozle some normalfags.
>>8289 heh
>>8289 DESTROYE D
I'd actually sell off a decent chunk of my old games if I knew someone would actually buy them and take care of them. Most of the hard copies of games I'd like to keep are ones that have sentimental value for me. Flash carts and MiSTer are good enough options for me. >>8289 I hate seeing stuff like this happen. The owner could be a complete faggot for all I care and it would still bother me.
>>8726 >I hate seeing stuff like this happen. The owner could be a complete faggot for all I care and it would still bother me. I mean, it is true. I'm glad that faggot lost the money he wasted but I do feel sorry for the games themselves.

So, are these assholes the reason so many old games have their prices jewed-up?
>>9037 Yes. Demand generates supply.
>>9020 You just know this faggot haven't played a video game in his life.
>>9038 I figured. It's not like these soydrinkers will ever even play them.
