I really wants me Fire Emblem Path of Radiance, brand new, but it is so hard to find. I don't like buying used games because I don't know what the former owner done with them. I like a vidya game to be mine and uniquely mine forever not belonging to someone else.
Is Path of Radiance worth 500 dollars?
>have PoR in box
I'm not even a collector but this triggers my autism something fierce!
And no I'm not paying 40 bucks for the fucking booklet when the difference between loose and complete is less than 1/4th of that.
First off, don't buy VGA graded games if you're planning on opening them. That's like buying a graded Black Lotus to play in a Vintage deck, it's fucking stupid.
Second, don't buy VGA graded games at all because they're fucking incompetent and put fucking holes in the case that they use to seal the game, which defeats the purpose of fucking grading it and getting it protected from the elements in the first fucking place.
Third, it's only $200 new normally, just wait or suck it up and buy it used/off of Amazon.
I had a grungy war survivor of a SNES Turtles In Time I bought at a yard sale but the local used game store sacrificed a Madden '94 to the gods and made it look brand new again in minutes.
What if it belonged to a 8 year old with autism who never washed his hands and it has remnants of fecal matter on the disc. If I pop that baby into my gamecube, then the fecal matter will get in my gamecube and possibly transfer to my mint condition discs from other games.
Soon bada boom bada bing all my games have autistic fecal matter on them.
except you have fecal matter on you RIGHT FUCKING NOW??? fucking hygiene freaks are goddamn insane
wipe it down with some lysol or something, jesus
like what the fuck is wrong with you? do you live in a bubble due to some disease?
Lysol would be bad for the disc, also I never have to wipe my discs because I use latex gloves when getting them out of the case and putting them in the system and when putting them back in.
>mfw nintendo stuff on the second-hand market is ridiculously overpriced because nintendrones are willing to eat shit and pay these scalpers'/resellers' exorbitant prices.
Now shut the fuck up and buy this shulk amiibo and this limited edition Majora's Mask 3DS for 6 gorillion dollars, you know you want it :^)
>I don't like buying used games because I don't know what the former owner done with them
I used to feel that way but there is pretty much no difference between very good/near mint condition and factory sealed mint apart from the shrinkwrap and a few hundred dollars. Just control your autism and if you don't like what you receive then get a refund.
>I use latex gloves when getting them out of the case and putting them in the system and when putting them back in.
and you're worrying about other people having autism? check the mirror first bro
bruh amiibo are at their lowest resale value right now.
only the amiibo that haven't received restocks yet like Pit, Lucina, Robin or Gold Mario are worth remotely above retail right now.
>mfw bought most of my gamecube games new back during when that console was current and they all cost like 5-10 bucks
>now they go for like 30-50 bucks used
I'm so glad I'm not one of the guys that ever sold my old consoles/games to FUCKING GAMESTOP like so many people. It would suck having to spend that much money just to get your physical games back.
It makes no fucking sense. I can look at my own god damn games and see that they're mint/sealed. I've bought one of those on cheap before. The fucking plastic case is COMPLETELY sealed. There's no way to open the case to get the game without using powertools, and damaging your mint/graded game.
yo I got you, disc only 70 bucks
>The fucking plastic case is COMPLETELY sealed.
Actually it's not COMPLETELY sealed. There's room enough for air flow. There was a video on Youtube that showed how stupid they are, had a variant of MGS that came with the strategy guide.
Yes, the VGA is that retarded.
Well air may be good. I know when I bought my sealed copy of Terranigma a decade ago, the plastic wrap on it was turning acidic and actually caused damage to the paper box. It was a shame, I had to tear the game open instantly
nothing wrong with maintaining proper hygiene
it becomes a problem when you obsess over it to the point where you come up with fictional 5 year olds with autism wiping their ass with the disc and you feel required to spend five fucking hundred on an emulatable game
What? Why the fuck would anyone care? Im a OCD autistic with all kinds of weird preferences and even i think this is over the fucking top. If the god damn thing still works why would it matter if someone has touched it
>get new game
>cover my hands with paper to open the box
>wash hands after trashing paper
>reach plastic with another piece of paper or tissues
>trash it and wash hands
>touch cable to turn on console or use paper and save another wash
Gamecube Virtual Console support when? PoR for $20 or less would be awesome but no, Nintendo had to skip Gamecube and go straight to Wii because reasons. They even have a goddamn Gamecube controller adapter now.
so why do you want an original copy when you can just pirate and emulate with better framerates, better textures, at a better resolution? if you feel bad about not owning it, pick up a used copy or something
It's meleefags keeping their game alive.
I literally just sold a super scratched to shit copy of Super Smash Bros. Melee for 60 bucks to an autist in my college rec area because their copy got burned to shit.
It's VGA graded you dumb fucking cunts.
OP why the fuck would you buy a VGA graded game just to open you you stupid bitch.
Kill yourself reddit faggots.
Never come back.
You'd need someone to count infinitely for numbers to be infinite.
As numbers are just a manner of measuring multiples of an object.
If something cannot be infinite there cannot be an infinite number of them.
Infinity cannot be measured, infinity is not a number.
Numbers are not infinite. They are a measure.
Video Game Authority
It's a grading company.
With that logic if you plan on opening something don't pay an extra $400 for a vga graded copy you dumb bitch.
Maybe you should learn how to not be a retard before you use the word logic.
Wait if you don't open it then how do you know there is even a game in there? There are factory mistakes where no game is in the case, and if there is no game in the case then it is worth nothing, so doesn't opening it actually make it worth more?
We do know if the Universe is infinite.
But yes God is eternal, that has nothing to do with something that exists within space and time being infinite, not being infinite, or even being capable of being infinite. God doesn't exist within time and space.
>tfw got a loose disc of PoR for $26 at a Micro Center back in 2013
Go to there website.
Because you can tell if a game is sealed from the factory from it having particular features.
Quick example would be the H seam on GBA games, they can be faked, although they are easily spotted. That's why they have the VGA.
PS and PS2 games have that foil stick thing on the white tag on top of the case. And the corner folds are very particular.
But what if there was a factory mistake and no disc was placed in the packaging, that has happened. So how can it be VGA without knowing there is a disc in the box, so wouldn't opening it to check to see if the game is in the box actually make it worth more because you know it's not just an empty box?
It's done by machines.
Pretty sure they have quality assurance for that too, before they seal it.
I don't believe anyone has ever bought a REAL sealed game and it didn't have a disc in it.
Jesus Christ was God in the flesh.
Jesus doesn't still walk the Earth and also aged.
Two different thing.
You are trying to say Ice is the same as Water.
Which they are, but also not.
I have, well actually it wasn't a game but a movie at Best Buy, it was the DVD March of the Penguins and no dvd was inside. I took it back to Best Buy and they said that happens rarely from time to time.
Its hard being a collectorfag.
I payed 90 dollaridoos for a used copy and still dont have the fucking manual sigh. I may make fun of you faggots for being autistic but then again so am i.
Ice is the same as water just colder.
Where can I go to get an opened copy of Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City VGA certified? It is in mint condition, with no scratches and only played once.
Anyone seen any unopened gold edition legend of zeldas ocarinas of time?
I own vanilla non goldie edition. And want untouched gold.
I want to feel the joy of opening a brand spanking new sealed gold edition OoT?
You mean collectors edition?
Is that a first print?
and phew 300 I'm gonna have to reach deep to play an unopened collectors edition... ah well it's worth it.
They're an authority because they say so. All you have to do is call yourself an authority online and get fools to give you money to put their shit into plastic boxes. They're a rip-off at best and a scam at worst, pulling the same shit that toy and comic collectors have fallen for over the years. They also do stupid shit like taking apart prototypes and NWC carts to display their innards, including exposed EPROMS. But if you enjoy spending triple what a normal copy of similar condition costs, feel free to prop up their business model.
They only did one print run.
What a dumb faggot.
You become an authority on something when you are an expert on it.
It's possible to be an expert on sealed video games and to determine whether or not they are legitimate.
i'll give you my copy op, was thinking about donating my old games because no longer have an interest playing on an actual console
Buying into the past is expensive as fuck.
I want conkers bad fur day, shit costs cash money
It's not even worth it. I say this as a man who has intense nostalgia for the game. It's overrated as fuck. The humor isn't even good. It's stuff you would laugh at if you're 10.
This happened a while back
>Walk into gamestop to buy game
>see guy in front of me
>trades in Radiant Dawn
>gets around ~40 for it
>Tell myself "anon what are you doing?"
>Guy leaves, I'm next.
>ask how much for Radiant Dawn
>"Its $70 anon"
Well fuck my shit up senpai.
Yes and no. It's an alright game but as a remake almost 20 years after the original they really cheaped out in a lot of ways. FE12 (the sequel to Shadow Dragon the west never got) fixed that up a lot. I wouldn't call it genuinely bad or anything.
'fraid that's not possible. You're right.
>GameStop near me has the Wii Fire Emblem Wii for $69.99
It's really not, that's just autism talking. If you have that kind of disposible income, more power to you. But as a collector myself, I would not pay more than a hundred bucks for an unopened piece of software.
>bought fire emblem for the wii for $15 when it was still in stores
Don't own PoR though
We're not talking about NES games, the fact that they did something so stupid with that NWC cart completely invalidates any credibility they may have.
And their slabbing process is shit too.
this is the worst fate for a video game
being sealed away, never to be played by someone, sitting like a museum piece.
games are meant to be played and i have opened every sealed game i've picked up in the last 10 years. i recently opened a sealed chibi robo because fuck you, its a video game.
i have dude
shit can happen
its a super tiny chance that 1 in 1 million will happen, but all you do then is just take it back.
PS1,2 and xbox/360 games all had something that couldn't be faked, a unique foil on the wrap.
go look at any factory sealed PS1 or 2 game and you will see it.
