@Aquamine-Amarine I don't think it's stealing if they are storing it for you once you've moved out... Ever seen storage wars?

But yeah all the posts are sad, including the Nintendo power loss :/

I only sold my telltale games for Wii which I regret, Three CSI games and Sam and max season one, luckily they are not super rare though. I also sold two copies of call of duty MW3 for DS to brothers at a carboot sale, can't say I've missed them but I regret doing the boot sale....waking up at the crack of dawn to deal with vultures and ending up with a pittance at the end of the day!

Earthbound. I kid you not. Although i wasn't exactly a kid. probably early 20's. I played some and just got frustrated at the beginning of the game. It seemed like you had to grind alot to even survive the first few battles so i quit. I kept dying. Sold it soon after and only later did i realize my mistake. I had one of the best games ever made and like an idiot i gave up on it too fast.

It's all good now though. I eventually gave it another chance and have since finished it. I now see why people like it so much. I just wish i kept that cartridge. The thing is so expensive now that virtual console was my only viable way of owning it. At least legally.

It was the power of Gyigas. He realized he would win easily if he could stop you from playing.
Nintendo may have created him but even they could not stop him and he used his powers to make them write the lengthy "don't play this game" sarcastic review in Nintendo Power.

I was never into selling my old games, so I still have most of my stuff. I'd consider selling some of the things now. I did lose a few high-dollar Saturn games lending them to friends who held onto them for a while and losing touch over time. I lost Albert Odyssey, Burning Rangers, and Shining Force 3. The last two were especially bad because they're from the last batch of games so are particularly rare. I never even had a shot at obtaining a Panzer Dragoon Saga from that final batch. In all three cases, it was not malicious intent. In fact, I think I ended up with my Burning Rangers case and manual returned with the wrong disc inside. That's probably worth something now. I ended up with a few games that belonged to other people as well, mostly on NES. It happens. Those Saturn games weren't worth much when I lost them. Luckily, I got another copy of Albert Odyssey, and I got it with Magic Knight Rayearth, both for practically nothing compared to what they sell for now. I wouldn't have ended up with Rayearth at all if I didn't have to re-buy Albert Odyssey.

Not really as there's usually a major reason if I sell games like a much better port on newer consoles, digital version for Xbox (physical games on Xbox has become increasingly pointless) or I didn't particularly like the game in the first place.
