Look after your games buddy, may I recommend some sort of game caddy with neon flashing lights attached.

Oh yeah, there was this time I lost my game case where I had 18 games.

Amongst them Pokémon White 2.

Some months after buying an used copy of the game, I found the case with all my games.

P.S. i do have two game cases because i have two 3dsi (i have no idea what the plural of 3ds is)

Way back in the day, this happened to me with Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland. Which is really funny nowadays as I have 3 versions of Adventure, and I think one of the free GBA 3DS games back in 2011 was ALSO Nightmare in Dreamland. So I have six versions of the game game.

The closest I've ever come to this was with some of the pirated PC games I used to have on PC. GTA Vice City being the main one. I don't think I ever lost the disks, they may be around here somewhere. But I've probably just thrown them away because now I have legitimate copies.

Not quite however I did double buy a game because I forgot that I'd already bought it. It was an import as well so now I'm stuck with two copies. Sigh.

I've generally been careful with my games, but I did lose Pokemon Ruby for about a month as a kid; I was and still am a bit of a butter fingers. XD I knew it was somewhere in the family van (we had been on vacation), but I didn't track it down until I was looking for something else I dropped. I didn't buy a new game though as I already had Emerald at that point and thought the game was infinitely better.

I bought Super Mario Land on 3DS Virtual Console because the Game Boy cartridge was lost a long time ago. A year or few after that, the cartridge is found in my sister's room. I have no clue why it was there. It makes sense that it was there for so long, though, because finding it required cleaning a bedroom.

I refuse to buy the same game again on the same system if I just lost it around the house. If there is something where it is most likely gone forever, like when I moved, it depends on how much I like the game.

I lost my 3DS game case awhile back and bought another copy of Star Fox 64 3D. Then ended up finding it inside my couch a year and a half later.
