Chucking out the box for my Lynx.

Never done that before or after, mind you it is the only time I have bought a console with a carry case. Stupid.

Also, sold my JAP Megadrive that I got when it was first released with about 25 JAP games. Stupid.

You'll be lucky to ever get a complete edition of that back. Was it any fun to play in the first place though?

For my own part, I gave both Questprobe adventure games for the C16 to a charity shop during the 90s. Virtually impossible to find them complete now. :cry:
It was OK as a game, not the best and certainly overpriced for the time. But I would love to get a complete version now for the pure nostalgia.

At an indie games shop I picked up Panzer Saga brand new for a tenner once, only to trade it in at a later date. £40-odd pounds I got for it I think, but if I knew then what I know now... The copy of Shining Force 3 I bought for £4, I swapped for a new copy of GTA III. Seeing as how GTA III had just been released and was £40 in the shops, it seemed a good idea at the time.

Sold a bunch of my Saturn games to my brother, including Vampire Saviour, SF Zero 3, Grandia, X-Men vs Streetfighter and Shining The Holy Ark. Not a tragic loss as I could still borrow them I suppose, but it's not the same.

My old Sega SG computer, really wished I'd kept that. I often sell older consoles and regret it a few months later for a while, but get over it. But that I really wish I'd kept. Cartridge version of Lode Runner with it too! :cry:

Ultimate: The Collected Works on the Speccy, all complete and with the map as well :(

Originally got it as an itroductory offer from The Home Computer Club for 75p, sold it for £5 to a kid in school (after copying it first :twisted:) and now regret it badly :(

Some regrets.....

Throwing out most of my N64 game boxes- including Conker 64, Paper Mario (did keep Harvest Moon, which I may actually sell at some point!)

Throwing out my Spectrum and C64 computers and games (I thought "well, I've got the games on some emulator CDs, and the computers are taking up room"- they were thrown in a communal bin, but someone else did take them.. so I don't feel quite so bad)

Throwing out my CD32 with the SX-1 expansion, extra memory and HDD (I think it was about 128 MB HDD!!). Again, thought it was taking up too much room, I could play the games on emulation... and couldn't be bothered testing it to see if it worked (also a lot of pressure from the girlfriend to throw it out). Was gutted to see how much they go for on ebay. I did keep the floppy drive, for some reason... so I may sell that.

I've always kept my other games, including gameboy/gbc (which I can't even really play now!). But did throw out most of the cardboard boxes, never thinking how much they would be worth. But then it's because of people like me, throwing out the boxes, that has made the originals so expensive!!!

Yeah i sold my Cd32 with SX-1, keyboard, floppy, mouse, bloody rare FMV unit! Had some good hours on that machine, upgraded from my A500, but skipped the A1200 to get the Cd32 combo, mainly because they couldnt get the A1200 CD Drive fully compatible with Cd32 games....not that it made much difference in the end lol

Though i also regret selling my Virtual Boy unit and games and complete UK Neo-Geo Pocket collection, though i did get a pretty penny on them!

This is one game I'm glad I Didn't sell!!! :)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Geoff-Crammonds-G ... .m63.l1177

but why is it going for so much - even the UK Ebay prices are the same as when I first bought it?? Is it because it runs on Windows Vista & as Retro Gamer pointed out it's the last Microprose game to be released.

I've never sold any of my games.

However I do wish I'd kept all my boxes for all my games/consoles.
