MRW I realise that I traded in a very rare game for 1 dollar and now I have to resort to playing it on emulators because of my stupidity.

ITT: Huge mistakes that if you could travel back in time, you would slap yourself for doing something to stupid.

You could have just found a dollar in the couch or something. Even if you do think you're getting "fair value," what's the point?

I can understand doing that with cardboard Nintendo things, but Mega Drive stuff was substantial, you monster

I remember doing the same with brickboy boxes, because I had a neato carry case that could store the games, cases and manuals. I stored the boxes separately for ages, but eventually they went in a clean-up, because "they were just boxes".

I sold my gameboy/gbc game collection for $2-3 apiece and N64 games for $4 a piece to a small local gameshop to buy a GBA when they came out. One of the biggest mistakes of my life for sure. I was very young and stupid.

Regrets? I have some.

When I was a kid, I was a little shit that never put away games. Not even on-disc games.

This caused me to lose Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg to scratches. I never saw another copy at Funcoland and have since found higher priority games to buy, so I haven't replaced it yet.

I wish I could, but to be totally honest, I don't think I got nearly as much enjoyment out of the GBA as I did the original GB. For whatever reason, with that system, I just never heard of or played many of the greats for it - maybe it was just a money issue or something, I can't remember. I dropped handheld gaming until late last year with the New 3DS.

>>3632

That's pretty tragic. Don't wait too long - you might lose it all over again to rising prices.

For example, no matter how much I'd like to have Yellow Version back in my collection, I won't pay $20 for it, because it's just "Pokemon is EPIC and this is RETRO" faggots who are driving those prices up and I won't stand for it. I'll gladly pay what games are worth - Super Mario Sunshine was like $30 to replace after a "friend" stole it. Same case with Melee, but for $50-60? Fuck no.

My brother and i REALLY wanted the Gamecube when it first came out, but our whore mother wouldnt buy us one. So we sold our SNES and N64 with all our games just to get it.
