not a good idea unless you pay, then open the game up in front of the clerk. or manager, (everything you buy these days is a risk factor.)

That is literally what i'm doing and yeah i know that is a bad idea, i pay, move on the side to not block the way to the counter and open my games, at first i got bad glance and clerks telling me to move away but now most of the clerks of the shops around know me so most of them let me be and just consider it to be a weird habit while the others understand how unlucky i can be with games, and yes i've been pretty unlucky in the past few years, especially with WiiU games like my limited edition of Xenoblade Chronicles X didn't had the artbook inside the box (me and the owner of the shop knew something was wrong since the items were moving inside...) but the "best" i had lately was when i bought Bayonetta 1 & 2 (in Europe the game comes in a box containing two different dvd case, one for each game) so i open up the box and we (me and the owner) see that two dvd cases are inside so she told me sarcastically "Oh what a surprise, everything is inside" then i pull out the dvd cases and... i started to laugh while she let out a sigh and telling me how unlucky can i be... what was inside ? Two copy of Bayonetta 2 instead of a copy of Bayonetta 1 and a copy of Bayonetta 2  ;D

The only real trouble i have with that weird habit is from the closest Micromania (the French GameStop), i've had so many trouble with used games (yes, i also check used games like this too) from them (disk were not inside, wrong disk inside or the prices were not those indicated on the box) that most of the clerks from there probably have something against me since most of time i've done a pre-order from them they cancel it the day before the release or tell up-front that they didn't receive enough copy to satisfy all the pre-orders they had... even though they still have a few copy on the shelves behind them...  >:(, and they even tried to make me pay full price for a item i bought (and already pay) on sale from their internet site ::), most of the time now i avoid that shop but if i really have to buy something from there i ask to a friend or one of my bros to buy for me.

try using amazon in whatever country your from @metshael. GameStop has givin' me hell in my late teen years years :(

My most favorite genre of music is not really a genre. some call it hair meal, some call it hard rock, but I like to call it light metal. Anybody out there? well those who tuned in today, try listening to 2 bands I think are highly underrated #1: "Firehouse" Firehouse album & "Firehouse" Hold Your Fire Album.

OR

#2 "Dokken" Under The Lock And Key Album &: "Dokken" Tooth And Nail ALBUM

OR "Don Dokken"Up from the Ashes" album

TRY LISTENING TO IT ON INTERNET RADIO SOMEWHERE PEOPLE  ;)

A man told me about a month ago how stupid the PS2 memory card requirement was for most PS2 video games. and I was shocked to hear from him that he told me you can use any harddrive without a modded PS2 and store your video game save files to it. HOW? he didn't tell me. He told me to connect the harddrive to the back of my PS2 PHAT OR FAT  expansion  BAY OR PORT and try. My question to those of you reading this and for years to come , IS this possible? :-\

I know that the PS2 requires a hard drive connection or some kind of converter, or not, from a more modern harddrive. I do know that anything can be done, but HOW?

(QUOTED OLDGAMERZ)


I play to keep and keep on collecting just to have them because I know that physical   video games are rare period. don't let anyone tell you different. Physical copies don't last forever. AND sometimes in order to have something Physical  again you just gotta open a seal copy. Data is more interchangeable that Physical copies, at least some good data is free on ROM sites, also some bad and good data can be found on corrupt ROM web sites. They say that ROMS are illegal but what do you think a PS4 uses people? I guess if you PAY it's legal but even back in the 1990's hackers used to put viruses on PC video games (THAT MY PARENTS USED TO PAY MONEY FOR) and even the SONY PS1 demo disc is actually a memory card breaker i read.

quoted from @hoshichiri
This bit confuses me. Physical games in general are not rare- maybe specific titles, but most anybody can walk into a store and find games of some kind. A ROM is just a date file- whether or not it's legal depends on who owns the data & if they're OK with where and how it's being distributed. and PS1 demos don't break memory cards! There was one PS2 demo that erased memory cards, but it wasn't intentional & sony pulled them and issued replacements. They also sent free games to people affected. I actually just hunted a copy of that disc down, now I need a PS2 card with corrupt data stuck on it- I want to see if the erase glitch can blank the card. Could be a valuable repair option nowadays.

REPLY TO: @hoshichiri from @oldgamerz
I only said there rare because in the way the world is going today ( not making any more physical copies as of the date of the post) as far as the curropt memory card goes, it is HELL to find a SONY  PS2 MEMORY CARD THAT IS STILL FUNCTIONAL.) AND i AM ABSOLUTELY PISSED AT SONY FOR NOT PUTTING MORE HEATSINK CHIPS INTO THE OLDER FATER PS3 MODELS TO KEEP THE INSIDES FROM MELTING >:( >:( >:(
AND even more angry that they stopped making them completely. IF SONY wants to get my money they better make a better product then the THE PS4!!!

I absolutely don't care about sealed games, if i buy a game it's to play it not to put it on my shelves like some sort of decoration, if it's a new released game i open it directly (i still remember about my Demon's Souls Black Phantom Edition, i buy it day one, got back home with it, at the time i lived in a rural area and the closest game shop was at 40 minutes of driving, so i got back home and open it just to find that the game is not inside, everything was inside except for the disc, i make another trip to that game shop and of course they're not believing me, i couldn't get a refund or anything and got pretty much banned to coming to that store again after arguing with the owner... well i wouldn't want to come back either, a good friend lend me his copy at the time so i could at least play with it and i completed my Black Phantom Edition a few years after by buying a loose disk on ebay but that why when i buy a game in shop i open it directly in the shop, i don't care if i will only play it months or years after).

But i'm not dumb enough to just open an old released sealed game, first for a period of time (more or like six months) i put it on sale and if no one buy it i try to trade it off for a cib copy of the same game in a good state of course (i did buy it to play it after all, it's the game that interests me not the plastic around it) for another period of time (again 6 months or so) and after that... well i open it, i recently unsealed Croisades for PC (a 1997 game but it was a pc game so it don't have much value) and i will probably have to open my copy of Ace Combat Advance for Game Boy Advance since i can't find someone to trade it with for a year now.


my opinion is, everything you said, is logical. except this concept, maybe you forgot to sat this but I am correcting you.

I remember watching MTV and MTV2 when they actually played music videos. Thinking about that, 3 Doors Down's Kryptonite was one of the first songs I've learned to play on my guitar! I'm with you on discovering rock genre around the millennium, before than I would listen to mainstream pop as kid.

Korn
Deadsy
Slipknot
Linkin Park
Papa Roach
Mushroomhead

Those were some of the early bands that lead me into the rock, than metal genre eventually. Can't say I listen to many artist of the 1960's below.  As for bands a few of my favorites throughout the decades are:

QUEEN , LUNA SEA , X JAPAN , SEIKIMA-II , SEX MACHINEGUNS , 17DED , BEAT CRUSADERS , MUCC , GEMINI SYNDROME , VENTANA , DREDG , PLASTICZOOMS , PLACEBO , DIR EN GREY , THE CRÜXSHADOWS , CLAN OF XYMOX , THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE , A PERFECT CIRCLE , THE CURE , DEPECHE MODE , OBLIVION DUST , GARBAGE , SHE WANTS REVENGE , ZILCH , XTC

NICE However I do rememember PAPA ROACH, KORN, AND SLIKNOT. and i already have 3 albums of LINKIN' PARK

QUEEN: yes
THE CURE: yes
DEPECHE MODE: yes
GARBAGE: yes
 and the rest of the bands you listed "@Stealthrush"? I need to look them up to see about buying some of their music!! :)

Once upon a time, I found this band called Metallica, and they're quite the hidden gem.

Here around where I Live near Rock City Detroit Michigan, Metallica was never hidden at all. In fact mostly all the 1990's and 2000's that is all my favorite radio station played at the time called 101.1 THE WRIF. yea Walmart sell all their albums at discount prices. My favorites include RIDE THE LIGHTNING. THE BLACK ALBUM, LOAD AND RELOAD. BUT,  I am not a fan much of Master Of Puppets and Kill Em All. and the rest of them. Now Mega Deth is pretty much forgotten around here and pretty much all else metal bands of the 1980's and 1990's.  :(

Anyone rememeber MOTLEY CRUE, TWISTED SISTER, GEORGE THOROGOOD, JEFF HEALY BAND,  W.A.S.P,  POSION, JAMES CHRISTIAN,  JOHN MELONCAMP  JOHN LENNON,  KEEP EM COMMIN PEOPLE I LOVE MUSIC

People thought "Xena: Warrior Princess: The Talisman of Fate" WAS a terrible video game on the N64. but It is actually a whole lotta of fun.

Xena: Warrior Princess: The Talisman of Fate. IS an easy fighting video game, where you can have up to 3 computer teams. Including your own team and go up against lets say 5 players on a team max. or 4 human users players at your birthday party. or computers.

It's a sword fighting game with characters from the Xena Warrior Princess TV cable TV show of the 1990's. you can even be Caesar, and cheat by dropping a rock on someones head. or call on an invisible army to shoot arrows at your enemies. AND believe it or not you can avoid spam cheaters, if you learn to jump and duck but mostly ducking, and walking sideways to avoid the cheaters who want to keep cheating all the time.

I only collect cheap used games mostly. because I find a used cheap game can be just a fun as a new game. I love the smell of unopened video games. But I don't plan on keeping my 3 sealed video games sealed forever. believe it of not I bought Medal Of Honor sealed for $under $15.00 american for the PS3 and that Game is awesome. I found it used, still sealed at a used video game market for an excellent price and that is an excellent game. Cracked case yes, manual yes, hole in seal yes, disc in mint condition yes manual in mint condition. apparently someone no longer want. original seal well no longer. I opened it and played that game because I don't want my games sealed forever. I buy video games to play them. not to profit or sell them. But someday I may share them with other people for free. I'll only sell them if I'm desperate again. for food.

Sorry to make so many topics Admin's I hope to keep the conversation going, and being a newbie I don't know if bring ancient topics back to life is a good idea. I got in trouble for that on a different forum. RUNNING SEARCH AFTER THIS POST. :)

2 searches and I found this topic ;)
https://vgcollect.com/forum/index.php/topic,8000.msg132815.html#msg132815

I will not make ROMS out of my games I don't know how to do that stuff. Sharing as is YES

#2: maybe they ARE good games but they didn't make enough or someone robbed the company or took all them

Are you talking about "Rare Bucky"? That guy has like 20 copies of every game ever made, new and sealed, in unopened crate-fulls. I'd love to know how he got all of that. Seems really shady.

hmm never heard of him, but sounds like he or she is some selfish rich jerk >:(

I only own 3 sealed copyed game and that is Banjo Tooie. but I took it out of it's paper box and left it inside a plastic bag hopeful to keep mildew of it

2nd is Mega Man x Collection for PS2 and Lego Marvel Heros for PS3 greatest hits. I just hevent's gotten to those games yet.

LOL a Japanese video game that is not in english for $500.00 and I need to know Japanese to play it successfully and I knew that. because of this joke I just created today of VG collect.


JOKE: what is an RPG or JRPG if you can't figure out what is going on? in the story line, at least? :P

Spoiler:
I didn't buy that game ;D why? because I rather buy another hack and slash in English.

Sometimes it pays good money to know Japanese for the ones who can afford to.

I played RPGS that keep on changeing the decicions and some of them will get you a game over people ??? :-X

Hey! the most chews and confusion on the market is making a really local place actually play the games first before selling them AND reading these forums on the internet.

 AND the honest forums, and not the stupid ones. heck this one guy is selling me $1.00 games AND he knows their good games because I told him and he already knows  8). Some of the most rarer and hard to find games COULD BE FRECKLING HARD TO FIND BECAUSE THEY SOMETIMES COULD HAVE BEEN COMPLETE GARBAGE TO BEGIN WITH.  >:(
 
#1: which is why they probably didn't sell vary well in the first place.
OR
#2: maybe they ARE good games but they didn't make enough or someone robbed the company or took all them and their house burned down :(

BUY WHAT you can afford. but try to get the common ones first if their still at a decent price that is.

the market is screwed up. I think the 007 Goldeneye for n64 should be re released because that game is a darn expensive yet COMMON and HARD to find video game in my local Area. BUT I played enough of that as a teenager so time to Move On OLDGAMERZ :P
