What do you do with your completed games!?

127 posts in this topic

Digital games I delete, UNLESS they have a hell of a lot of DLC and took days to download.  Then I'll just leave them.

 

Physical games go up on the shelf.  You never know if you might play them again due to strange circumstances.

I've got them alphabetical ordered & collect them,

except the multiplayer ones with closed servers. They'll be sold.

Physical - Move them over to the completed pile since I'm a collector

 

Digital - Delete them from my HDD

I used to do that back in the days of yore, but I got such a sore butt because of that Jerry Seinfeld outfit.

I used to be an adventurer like you! But then I took an arrow to the knee!

They go back on the DVD rack up on my wall in their rightful place. I call it My Collection. :P 

I do delete them from HDD to save space. If it's digital it stays on HDD. If it's PS+ it also gets deleted.

I only got rid of a very few select games out of the hundreds I own.

Physical games either go back to the shelf or into storage since I'm more of a collector than a gamer or trophy hunter and I'll never sell any game I spent perfectly good money on. Digital games stay as well, that's what external hard drives are for. When one is full, I buy another

The few physical copies that I own will remain with me. I'm almost sure I wont be replaying these games, but it's cool to look at them organized. And the digital ones I uplod the save to the cloud and, of course, they stay in the library.

Only games that will stay with me are the ones that I bought from Akiba and Den Den Town. 

 

For the rest, I trade them.

For physicals, I sell them for a good price on eBay, I made hundereds of pounds from it selling all my old PS1, 2 and 3 games, and also all my GBA and DS games. I still remember selling my old GBC Pokemon Silver cartridge for £50... didn't think anyone would pay that much for it. But I usually sold most games for between £10-40 depending on the game. As for my Japanese games, I had taken them to Japan with me and traded them into a store called Book Off.

 

Now I mostly buy digital so can't do anything with them. I've just kept the physicals for my PS4 and Vita so far as all of them are Japanese versions which I can't sell in the UK. I just keep them and will probably trade them into Book Off when I go again to Japan some time. 

 

I never trade anything into Game or Gamestop, they're trade in values are horrendous that I'd rather give the game away for free.

Opposite. Like an idiot I've kept all my games from childhood and they are now worth just pennies for the most part. Now? I trade them in as soon as I've finished. Combined with buying second hand I rarely spend more then £8 net on a game. All those £60 plus games as a kid! What a waste of thousands!!!!

Keep em for posterity. Before last year, I had only sold two games in my life and regretted it. Then I had to sell off a huge chunk of my collection which broke my heart but it was for a good cause. I've regained a substantial portion of what I lost and have every intention of keeping it from now on!

These days, I always keep my physical games because I like building up a collection. I probably won't play most of these games again, but they're nice to have. As a kid, I often sold games once I was done with them so I could put the money towards something else, but this usually came back to bite me in the ass later when I felt like playing it again. I can remember a few occasions when I rebought a game for more money than I sold it for in the first place.

 

As for digital games, it depends what platform we're talking about, but generally I keep them installed on PS3/PS4 once they've been completed because HDD space isn't much of an issue for me. I'd say I'm more likely to delete a digital game on Vita once I'm done with it due to the memory card space limitation, but 90% of the games I own on there are physical anyway, so it's not something I have to deal with very often.

90% of the games I own are digital so I just delete those when I'm done obviously. Of the 30 or so game I own physical copies of, I keep them, not for any sentimental reason but just because I'm not going to trade in a decent game for $5 of store credit lol. If I could get 50% back of what I paid for most of those games then I would probably get rid of them but unless it's a collectors edition or a very recent release, even on Amazon that's usually not realistic.

The feeling of deleting a 100% or platinumed game is second only actually popping that last trophy. If it’s a physical game my friends/brothers and I trade them back and forth as we beat them

Physical games go up on the shelf, I don't sell or trade my games. Digital just reside in the digital limbo of obscurity somewhere in the interwebs.

I buy mostly physical games...keep everything...they will get passed on to my kids at some point should they want them...

^ This.

I still have all my PS2 games put away under the bed, a lot of which I introduced my son to gaming with on an old PS2. He now has my old PS3, and some of the games I've finished that I feel are age appropriate I've passed onto him. If I like them, he borrows them, or if I didn't like them and only got them second hand/for the trophies/to play through with him he can keep them now.

Nowadays though, I have such a backlog of PS+ titles, that I rarely buy physical games now unless I want to, in a way, archive them for the future (Rockstar titles, etc), or pick them up really cheap.

Once I've completed them, they are just stored away to clear up a bit of shelf room, but considering I rarely buy games at full price, 99% of the time I hang onto them after completion.

There has been the odd exception, which I will sell (I'm looking at you Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust 😬)

Delete.  Or sell if I know that there'll be no dlc added.

unpopular opinion I throw them away. unless they have serious trade in value.

Couldn't you just leave them on a park bench or something instead? Throwing them away is a waste.

You don't need to do that. If you scroll to the right you can go into your library section and go where it says games! It will show everything you ever had. Even if you deleted them. Icons and all. 

Tried everything back before I bought it and no one mentioned it. On PS3 right now, will look when I'm back on my PS4.

that's littering you don't leave trash laying around public spaces. is it waste when most games are 50% online and when the server goes down it's a glorified coaster.

If it's digital, I erase it to free up space. I do the same for physical, then I sell it on eBay to buy other things. I almost never trade because it's a ripoff usually.

Anything digital I'll just delete from my HDD to free up space, physical copies I like to keep as part of a collection
