I wouldn't part with my Squaresoft / Square Enix collection for the world! To be honest, I would be hard pressed to part with most of my games.

Welcome to the forum!

I stopped parting with my games back when I had a SNES. I traded in a couple of games once to get newer titles (had to do it back then as my pocket money didn't allow me to buy new games at full price much...) but ended up missing the old games and buying them back later. I know now that as soon as I get rid of a game I'm only going to want to play it next week (or remind myself of how rubbish it was :lol: )

I'd never part with my entire Megaman collection, no matter how much I could get for it.

Saying that I wouldn't part with any part of my games collection, I love it all dearly and really wouldn't sell any of it unless I absolutely had to (and even then it would be a last resort)

i wouldnt part with any of my older games but i dont mind trading in current gen games unless i really enjoyed them

2 examples of this would be soulcalibur 4 and valkyria chronicles, both on the ps3

i have traded pretty much the rest of them in, oh speaking of sales i am selling my copy of street fighter 4 for the ps3, i tried but i cant get into it, i also have a spare copy of zelda,the wind waker for sale too if anbody is interested. Both games are in great condition and the zelda one is the limited edition double disc version with occarina of time.

another game i wouldnt part with is powerstone 2

None of them, I sold my C64 collection about 10 or 12 years back and regretted it ever since :cry:

Edit: I also sold my Gameboy collection too for stupid money, I had a look on ebay the other night for a few of the games I had, Final Fantasy Mystic Quest now sells for over £50 :shock: , so that's one game I'll never get back :cry:

I once thought of selling all my PS2 games and just focus on my 360 and Wii, but then I thought about the almost obscene ammount of great games the PS2 has and that made stop me eBaying them at the very last moment. My most beloved set of games are the now complete Resident Evil series (missing Code Veronica but I've got it for the PS2 anyway) for the GC.

I happly get rid off alot of my newer games when I get bored of them, or no longer play them. My new PS1 and SNES collection is not going anywhere. Nor is my copy of the Warriors, ever, and I mean ever, I love that game.

I never ditch anything - not even the stuff I don't like /aren't into. I don't actively buy games I have no interest in playing but if they should somehow find their way into my collection then I'll still keep them.

Thats exactly what I used to do, as a kid I was only allowed one console. Back in the day I sold my snes to buy a megadrive mainly because I thought the mega-cd was going to be massive!

The games I would never sell now are my resident evil and castlevania games, although TBH I rarely play them these days...

will never get rid of my copy of Bioshock for the xbox 360, this was the game that changed my perception of modern games as i was predominantly retro before hand. plus its the Big Daddy collectors edition which still looks superb.

I'd never part with my copies of Vib Ribbon and Alundra for the PS1, seeing that both games are fun as hell but now also rare and expensive, almost as much as Tombi!, which is also fun to play.
