Are There Some Games You’ll Never Get Rid Of?

Gaming Stuff(Small)

As I stood in front of the open cabinet that holds most of my games, deciding what was trade-in worthy and what wasn’t, it occurred to me that there are many games that I just can’t bring myself to part with. Whether it’s because it was my first entry into that particular series, a gift, or I just really liked that game, I had some kind of sentimental attachment to it. And it’s not as if I’ve had an urge to go back and play them or constantly think about them and the fun times I had; quite the opposite. I don’t seem to think back on them until I see them. Then I end up thinking to myself, “You must never, ever, get rid of these. You understand?!”

It’d be too much (and too crazy) to call them ‘sacred’, but that’s a pretty apt way to describe these particular games. Which leads me to a question I have to ask you, people that are reading this for some reason: Are there some games you’ll always keep with you? Why?

To name a few of my own, and because it’s only fair to share:

The damage looks minimal, but trust me, it’s messed up.

Again, that’s just a few of mine, but I’m much more interested in hearing about the games other people get attached to and the reasons behind it. When it comes to something like this, I just find it interesting for some reason. How is it that we can get so attached to a product—some of which don’t increase in value over time—to the point that we become adamant on never giving them up?

Kyree didn't have an N64 or Dreamcast as a kid (so sad) and he doesn't remember finishing any of his PlayStation games, but skip to the PS2/GC/Xbox era and everything changed. He hasn't been outside to play tag in forever, but he can recall playing way too much Smash Bros. and even more Kingdom Hearts; seriously, he can recite lines from it. I think he may have a problem.
