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.

I once bought my friend’s old NES from him in the 90s, with a ton of accessories (gamepads, the advantage joystick) and a whole library of games in boxes with manuals. I paid £17.

It sat in a box for years, only pulled out for the odd retro hit, until I got married. A combination of needing more room and getting a Wii with virtual console available persuaded me to give it all away to a charity shop.

‘That’ll make someone’s day!’ I cheerfully told the old dear running the shop.

10 years later and I still regret it!

(The bit about giving away the NES, not getting married of course!)

I managed to hold onto all of mine (barring the ones that broke) and was able to pass them only my little boy. He plays with them alongside his newer ones (which have more likeness to the cartoons and articulation than we could’ve dreamed of back in the mid 80s 😁

None of the games I had as kid were that great tbh.
Well, the Sega Genesis games were re-released in compilations about a million times each so it's very hard to not own them one way of another.

I regret getting rid of my NES stuff. I had around fifteen games or so. While some haven't aged the best, I still miss having the original cartridges.

Super Mario RPG hands down. I managed to recollect all the games that I initially had for the NES and SNES, but I'm doing pretty well here, considering I have pretty much the perfect NES collection with Crystalis, the original Zelda, Metroid, and Contra., Kirby's Adventure, and Rush 'n Attack. As for the Mario stuff I got the All-Stars. I started collecting for the SNES almost 10 years ago, so I had time to catch up on all of those games, and other than Mario RPG, I think I have everything I want for the SNES that I had as a kid.
