They are,the seller has kept the games ,resealed the box and sold it on ,to sit on a shelf gathering dust .

I always wondered about those characters who have their sofa covered in plastic,i bet those sealed game buyers laugh at those nutters :lol:

Just because people collect sealed games doesn't by any means make them a lesser gamer, and at the end of the day they've payed money for these games that most of us most certainly wouldn't.
I think the saying "fools and their money", perfectly sums them up though !

oh god, here i go.

Do you smoke or drink alcohol? The money you waste on those substances harm you. Fools and their money.
Do you buy new shoes or trainers? Nike adidas etc, all cost so much, however Asda offer a nice cheap alternative that do the same job. Fools and their money.
Do you buy a lottery ticket? The odds of you winning are very very poor. Fools and their money.

Basicly any unessential item you spend money on is foolish.

what the feck is THIS all about?? an unboxed NEs with mario / duckhunt on £60 .. 25 bids?? £9 postage too...

I put up a nes on ebay a few months ago with 30 games and it didnt sell for 100 .. im glad though as im keeping it and collecting more things for it now..

But seriously is this shill bidding ior what? surely noone in their right mind would pay £70 for an unboxed nes with 1 game

Henceforth, all games that are intended to start off a franchise must have a '1' after their title, as in (just for example's sake) 'Castlevania 1'. or if they're unsure a second game will be made, put a 'Final' in front of it, as in 'Final Super Mario Bros.' or 'Final Sonic The Hedgehog'.

Tosser. :roll:

Not a game but couldn't resist this. Some asshat wants £61.47 for Comptons Most Wanted "Music To Drive By" CD. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Comptons-Most-Wan ... 230cd4d1e2

Nearly fell off my chair - worth a fiver tops. Stupidity isn't just for game sellers. This muppet didn't even upload a photo!

I bought my copy of Music to Drive By for £3 from HMV a little over a year ago. It's not OOP, what the hell is the guy thinking??
