@Sykotek: I know that companies like Gamestop the trade ins are a big part of their business. They put so much emphasis on the manager to make a certain amount of trade ins that even alot of times they just look the other way even if they know its stolen. As sad as it is they have to think about themselves in that situation. I mean they dont want to lose their job especially in this bad economy. I truthfully dont know what happened to my friend I know he got transferred to another Gamestop and soon after that quit the company. As for that Fed Ex guys you were talking about a similar thing happen to a co worker of mine. His previous job was at Circuit City before the went out of business in the receiving department. Well to make a long story short a few of the guys were stealing that games and DVDs and taking them in to Gamestop cases and all. They managed to get caught eventually but it cost everyone in the department their job including my co worker which is how he came to work with me.

But anyways enough of this and yeah I agree with you as well I wont buy games when there in those generic cases. I get the original boxes and if the store doesnt have it than its a no deal. I am even picky in that the box cant be cracked or broken.

...uh, about your manager friend and about what happened to him, that sounds awfully familiar especially if its recent too. I know you mentioned Northern California in another post, you don't live near the SF Bay Area, do you? ...cause if you do, I might be able to tell you what happened with him if its the same guy.

@grenworthshero: That was a test. You sir, make me sick with your obsessively compulsive cases must be perfect before you buy them and add them to the rest of your perfect collection which you mostly don't play ways. I am ashamed to breathe the same air as you sir, good day. ...I said good day! >:6

...just kidding! =D
in all seriousness though, sometimes I hate that I'm so picky about buying games, what about you grensworthshero? Has it got to that point for you yet?

I bought F12009 with the wheel, but because there is a purple triangle on the spine - instead of a green Pal triangle - I'm seriously thinking of buying it again without the wheel, so I have a box with the proper green mark.

I think I might have been dropped on my head as a baby(?)

Omg me too! :O

I always try to get things in perfect condition, unfotunetly with older games this isn't always possible so when I get one in less perfect condition it just bothers me. I try very hard to let it go but I sometimes end up returning the games.

On topic: Nope I never throw away a box.

I never throw away a game box either. I do irritate myself with how perfect I want my collection to be. Because of this I do not like to loan out any of my games either.

I NEVER throw away boxes for systems, games, accesories, or anything! I like to keep my stuff in as perfect condition as possible no matter what it is. I can't stand it when people just casually throw their boxes away. Why would one do that!? That's just un-thinkable. I guess its the thing most people do though because when shopping in the used game market its damn hard to find any game NES-N64 still with box/manual. But hey, that's what makes all my pieces with their original stuff so rare :)

This sounds about right for me. I do make exceptions on game cases when I buy used, though, but the disc must be in flawless working condition. This, however, doesn't stop me from whining internally about how the game should've included its original packaging and all its contents (manual and inserts)...

I remember being sickened when a GameStop employee told me that they mostly got rid of a used game's original case and shredded the cover art and manual. It just sounded like a really stupid move coming from a business that's supposed to cater to gamers...

Yep I can go that far too I cant stand it especially with the old PSone jewel cases where it looks like someone took a sander to it. I remember one time I was looking for a copy of Spyro the Dragon on PS one and the only copy the Gamestop near me had was one in a case that had a huge crack and was all scratched up. I asked the sales person if he had another case but all he offered me was the paper sleeve type case. I told him nope and left.

And to answer your question no I dont live near SF I am actually closer to Reno than SF but thats all I am saying as I dont think this is the place to talk about where I live. No offense to you.

Not usually. I keep my games in my own cases, but I keep the cases they came in. Except for GBA games.

Back in the day, when i was a Kid, and didn't care for them, then Yes
But since today games a CD base, then you look like a moron to throw your CD case.

For you, the day LordJumpMad graced your threads, was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

Anyone who throws away the Metroid Prime Trilogy case is an idiot, no exceptions.

EDIT:
EXCEPTIONS: 1. You were paid to do so. 2. You had a good reason to throw it away.

Personally, I keep my game boxes and cases in the best possible condition. I didn't when I was younger, with SNES/N64/GBA boxes, but I do now.

1. Unacceptable, unless the fee is, at the very least, £100 million.
2. No such thing, unless you had a gun held to your head or a rabid dog threatening your... yeah.

Yes, it is kind of annoying, when I find a game I can't seem to find anywhere, but it's in bad shape, so I refuse to buy it. I will make exceptions sometimes, but I'd rather have all my games in perfect shape. I do play all of my games, and I plan on finishing them, but it's getting a lot harder to do so, because I've been collecting a lot more than I have been playing lately. That's starting to change now, at least until I get my backloggery down a bit.
