Do any of you keep games you don't like? I figure, if I don't like them, I won't play them. So why keep them?

Yes, I do. Only because I like to collect games for the gamecube though. I often times buy games not to play them, but just to have them.

Games are meant to be enjoyed, not just collected. I have a massive collection, but most of them I actually play.

Collecting is fine, so long as you don't just let them sit and gather dust. It's like car collectors. They buy all these priceless Ferraris and whatnot, only to put them in a private museum for the rest of their lives.

Super Mario Land 1, Rugrats! The Movie [why haven't I sold this yet?], Virtual Bart (SNES) [:P], and Adventure Island 1 (NES). Surprised? I know I would be.
Oh, and Kirby Canvas Curse.

Nope. Unless you're a hardcore collector, I don't see the reason why you would keep games you don't like...

I have a few games in my library I don't particularly care for (like A Bug's Life for PS1 and the Harry Potter games), but the only reason I kept them was cuz they were my sister's. :P

I don't. I don't collect games. I buy them to enjoy them, if I can't do that, then what's the point in having them?

The best strategy in the game: go up stairs and pause balls.

@Shadx: I buy them to enjoy them. Sure I've only beaten maybe 1% of the games I've owned, but every now and then I break another out and enjoy it even if I don't get very far.

If I dig it, I'll hang on to it after beating it, otherwise I try to sell them. No use in them taking up all my shelf space.

No. I'm a collector too, but I see no reason in keeping a game I hate. It debases my collection, like a trash house in the middle of a nice suburb.

Perfect choice of words :D

I'm pretty much the same way. Despite having a decent collection, I don't normally keep around a game I don't like.

Absolutely not; especially if I can turn it around for cash -- that includes downloads!
