    Default Video Games You Regretted Selling

    I've just gone through a period where I had to sell some games to pay off some nasty bills, but times are now better and I can finally reflect on what's been lost. I will likely seperate my posts between what I sold lately, and what I regretted selling in the following post. This is also to emphasize just how many games I really did own, and in comparison to my next post, how many I was able to live without (for various reasons that consist of simply not playing them anymore or not liking them)

    What I've sold off lately in the past few months to save my hide:

    Not much since I've bought back most games I've sold many years ago. Perhaps at the moment, Super Mario Kart would be nice. Still haven't bought that one back and I've had a SNES for many years now.

    I've bought almost all of the games I ever played and liked back in the day. I regretted selling my Master System, NES and TG16 and all games so much I systematically rebuilt not only what I had but what I ever wanted back then. Now I'm just a gem hunter.

    Mighty Final Fight(NES) - traded it to a friend for what I believe was "Tombs & Treasure".

    I don't sell my games for this reason.

    Here are my picks for games I really miss the most:

    Sega Saturn:

    Burning Rangers - At first it felt like a short exercise from Sonic Team when I blasted through it in one day. But as time has gone by, I have to admit, it really was a neat game and I'm looking to pick it back up in the future because I haven't played anything like it to this day.

    Shining Wisdom - This might seem like a weird one, but I personally felt this was my favorite Zelda-clone from Sega (moreso than Crusader of Centy and Beyond Oasis), and it's novelty has only come to bother me with its absence. I shall likely try to pick this up in the future as well.

    Lunacy - Made from the same company that did Mansion of Hidden Souls for Sega CD, and Seal of the Pharaoh for the 3DO, I actually felt this was the developer's best title and its unique story is something I'd like to check out again at a later date.

    Virtual Hydlide - I just miss this game because it makes me laugh so hard. And I feel guilty for admitting this, but I actually had fun with it too. It isn't worth anything if I ever want it back, so this isn't first priority.

    Sega Genesis:

    Shining Force - I had this with box and instructions, so it does burn not to see it in my Genesis collection. However, I should be grateful it's not worth an absurd sum, so that always helps.

    Sega 32X:

    Blackthorne - I thought this game was pretty cool, but the only reason I ever decided to sell the game was because I sucked at it.

    PS1:

    Mega Man Legends - See Capcom, that's what you get for not releasing Mega Man Legends 3! Nah, in all seriousness, I do miss these games already, and here I was telling myself that 2D Mega Man was all I needed. Well, I guess that statement's still correct, but Mega Man Legends always does a good job of making me think twice.

    Alundra - It's strange, I miss this game, but not Dark Savior. Dark Savior was bold in its experimentation and that's something worth remembering it for, but I miss Alundra because the game was a lot of fun for me to play in comparison. If I wanted a 32-bit Landstalker title, this game delivered the goods.

    Einhander - I miss this game because I love Shmups, and even though it wasn't as fast or to the point like other shooters I preferred, it still had a great cinematic flair and fun weapons. Certainly a game worth picking up again at some point.

    SNES:

    Pocky and Rocky - I miss this game the most because of the childhood memories I had with it, and what little time I spent with it when I finally bought the game later in life. It's a forgotten classic and one that I would recommend to anyone who likes action games. Picking this one up again shouldn't be any trouble.

    Super Metroid - My favorite Metroid title, but I'm more of a Sega guy so naturally I sold this just to make some money. I do plan to pick it up again at some point.

    Castlevania IV - Symphony of the Night is my favorite, so it didn't feel wrong selling this at first. Weeks have gone by, and now I realize that what I sold was the SECOND BEST Castlevania game I've ever played. Oh well, at least I have Bloodlines which is easily as good!

    And that's all I can think of for games I either miss greatly or would like to pick back up.

    You are correct in that statement. I'd say that I did own a lot of garbage too though, so if anything positive came out of this, I did sell a lot of games I either didn't like, or simply weren't useful anymore. But in either event, not selling games is something I should start making a practice of from this point forward.

    Heh, yeah I could do with another copy of Toy Story on SNES. Fantastic memories... I do have it on Genesis though. Quite an impressive game.

    yeah, Tombs & Treasure is a real NES game. I own a copy.

    I haven't sold off many of my games. But I did sell my copy of Mortal Kombat II a fair number of years ago that I got on its launch day, and that weighed on me a bit not long after I did it. I've got another copy now and it's in fine shape, but it's not the original one I got all those years ago.

    Outside of that, I regret selling all my Atari 2600 stuff. I was still a teen at the time, and didn't really care. But now, considering all the games I used to have for it, I wish I had them back.

    I rarely sell anything, but I very mildly regret selling my XBox. I was under the assumption that 360 had backwards compatibility. I did not know Microsoft was lying out their arse about it.

    Many, many games.

    Tombi is the one that most stings; sold it for a tenner, now it goes for 200+. No way I can afford that.

    That's pretty much me too, but I do regret pirating a lot of games in my younger years instead of buying them. My big game regret is probably being "smart" and borrowing my friend's copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga to play so I didn't have to buy my own copy. Doh!!

    Shining in the Darkness - Would love to give this game another chance, but haven't seem to been able to find a particularly cheap copy in the wild, don't feel like paying more than $5 for it.

    Mario Superstar Baseball - Traded this one away as part of a deal for a copy of Tetris DS. Wish I still had it as the game was a ton of fun, but the latter is so much harder to find.

    Mario Kart Double Dash - One of my favorite versions of Mario Kart, got rid of it when I got Mario Kart Wii. Now my Wii is broken and the only two incarnations I have are Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64, neither of which I really care for as they're a bit dated.

    Most of the stuff I sold I really didn't regret selling - it was more of an inconvenience to track down a replacement when I wanted to play said system. For example, I traded a NES away for something or other when I was little and, although I didn't miss it, I was pissed when I had to track down another one just to get Super Mario Bros 3 out of my system. However (and while I'm talking about NES), there is one lot that I wish I didn't sell. It was a CIB, NM NES Deluxe Set complete with ROB, both games CIB, all plastics, everything in pristine condition. I wound up selling it along with a lot of 30 or so CIB NES games on eBay for ~ 250. THAT pissed me off and I regret that one a lot.

    When I bought a Saturn for the first time, I bought a big lot off ebay (this was maybe 2001 or so) and one of the games was Burning Rangers. At the time I more or less didn't give it much notice. I ended up trading it for something (cant remember what) but now I wish I still had it

    The other was I had a minty complete Panzer Dragoon Saga for Saturn (around 2002 or so) and I traded it for a complete Out Run 3D for Master system. I kind of wish I still had that PDS. All I've got now is a disc only copy of PDS Still have Out Run 3d tho!
