Kirby Superstar Ultra: Too easy and I got Kirby and the Amazing Mirror from the ambassador program and it is way better.
Avatar the Last Airbender: Worse than the average liscened game.
Mario and Luigi Bowsers Inside Story: All of the dialougue made me lose interest. Still a great game though.
Mario Kart DS: I got Mario Kart 7 and I like 7 better.
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days: Fun at first but I didn't understand the plot and the gameplay was repetitive.
The Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass: It had its moments but over all it was just frustrating.
Pixars Cars: WORST GAME EVER.
Mario Party DS: I have no good reason for getting rid of this. I just stopped playing it.

Every DS game I've ever owned, lol. Yeah, in my hype up for 3DS, I traded in all my DS games, so I could get 4 3DS games on launch. Needless to say that was a pretty stupid decision (only enjoyed two of the four games I got). With my growing library of great 3DS games, I'm missing them a lot less now, but during the 3DS launch period, I was ashamed to get rid of my awesome DS library (Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword, Spirit Tracks, Phantom Hourglass, KH: 358/2 Days, KH: ReCoded, Suikoden Tierkries, M & L: Bowser's Inside Story, Kirby Super Star Ultra, NSMB, Lufia: Curse of the Sinestrals, Ace Attourney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, amongst others).

I recently traded in Ghost Trick, a couple of Professor Layton games, and 999. They were all good games, but I can't really imagine going back to play through them again and got a great deal with the trades. The only one I kind of regret is Ghost Trick... but that's available via iOS anyway so shouldn't be hard to play again later if I want.

Any DS game I've ever owned, I still own. Even if I totally beat a game and its the type of game that I likely would never re-visit, I still hang onto it. Any bad games I have would net me very little if sold or traded so why bother? I couldn't imagine selling off many of my DS games. They all hold special memories. Plus I'm a collector of Nintendo stuff so its kind of out of the question to get rid of stuff.

No...not really. I have a big bookshelf that holds all my Wii/DS/3DS/Gamecube/GBA games and several drawers that hold anything older than that. Games don't really take up much space at all. I will never understand people that get rid of any game they've finished regardless of how much they loved the game or what kind of memories may be attached to it. The cycle of trading in old games in order to get new games makes absolutely zero sense to me. If you do it that way, at the end of the day, you've spent all this money and have nothing to show for it.

It's the same reason people can go to movie theaters or watch something on TV instead of buying the DVD. They pay for the experience, which they value over a physical product. And when once is good enough and you're ready to move on, at least now you won't have something wasting space. Some people just don't get emotionally attatched to things like games the way you do, and to be quite honest, I don't see any logical reason to do so.

Well to each their own I suppose. I could just never imagine dumping any of my games (On Nintendo consoles that is. I have no problem at all letting any games go for other consoles).

Fossil Fighters. Boring
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Blue Rescue Team. Have Red Rescue Team. WAAAAAAAAAY better deal and easier to play.
SeaMonsters. Nation Geographic games are stupid
others because they got boring or ruined the d-pad on my previous games because they demanded you to press the d-pad's same left and right, wearing it out. DS lites are not very well made either!

I agree 100% I traded in Nintendogs, Brain Age, and Big Brain Academy, and am starting to regret it, I'm making sure I don't make the same mistake with NSMB, and Squeak Squad.

That's the point though - it's sentimental value that people attach to things like games. Logically, if a game is not going to get played again, it would make sense to sell it and make money back (I'm disregarding people who invest in video games, as that's a different beast).

I'm guilty of it myself, although I do expect to go back and play games again in the future. I have never gotten rid of any games I own. I enjoy having a collection of games - in the same way that I enjoy having a collection of CDs, DVDs, memorabilia etc. - and when it comes to games, I enjoy not only the game itself but the memories that surround them (where I was when I was playing that game, friends I played it with etc.)

While I know the reason that people might sell a game (or even just throw away all but the cd/cartridge), I don't understand how they can do so, simply because I attach a non-monetary value to my belongings. It's illogical, I agree, but there you go. Having said that, I don't begrudge people selling games or throwing away packaging (well, except when I'm trying to track down a complete copy of an old game!) - if they don't get attached to their games, well, so be it.

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.
