STASH IT OR TRASH IT!!!!!!

I hereby nominate this thread as a place people can go to discuss with other LCVG forum people whether or not to keep an XBox Live enabled game. Certain games like Crimson Skies and Rainbow Six 3 are keepers. But there are a few others that may have fallen through the cracks that either got a second life (Clone Wars) or a violent and unceremonious one-way ticket to eBay's bargain bin (Whacked).

 

Today's contestant:

 

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

 

Come on. Tell me you folks don't like the idea of going on line and whacking the living hell out of your friends with a lightsaber or frying their broke asses with lightning. WELL NOW YOU CAN!

 

Or at least I can, because NOBODY ELSE ON THIS FRICKIN' FORUM OWNS THIS G$#@#$% GAME!!!!! :bang: :bang: :bang: :bang: And there's only so many times I can get my ass handed to me on a plate by some 12 year old Darth Maul wannabe before I think my hard-earned money shouldn't have been wasted on this almost-coaster!!!!!!! :x :x :? :bang: :bang: :evil:

 

OKay folks, it's either going the way of Whacked or I'm saving it in the hopes that I can realize my dream of cutting you people to shreds one night Ding-fries-are-done style!!!!!!!!

 

:wtf: :wtf: :wtf: STASH IT OR TRASH IT???? :wtf: :wtf: :wtf:

Trash it! If gamers on this forum haven't already bought an online-Star Wars game at this point, I just don't see there being a chance of enough people picking it up in the future. There are too many good games being released now and in the near future.

 

Better yet, Bill wants you to to be enviormentally conscience and recycle your old crappy Xbox games!

Yeah, but as a whole, you can buy them back for cheaper later.

 

Ehhhh, I'd be leery of that line of thinking though. IF something becomes rare enough when it goes out of production you could be tossing over some serious coin to get it back. Not likely in this case, I'd grant you, but it IS possible :).

Stash it. I'm keeping mine for the same reason. Even if I don't play online, you never know when you want to go darkside on someone's ass. I thought the game had some pretty good levels that I'm sure I'll want to replay at some point. PLUS it has split screen multiplayer for when my brother comes to visit. :evil:

 

I started a thread like this a few months ago trying to get a game going but then I dropped the ball. I'd be up for one this week for sure.

Sure, if you are talking about one game. But if you are talking about quantity, it averages out.

 

I could sell my entire collection today, and buy it back cheaper in a couple of years, because for every title that is selling for $150, there will be two dozen that are selling for $10.

 

If you sell back a lot of titles, I wouldn't be concerned about price increases, not at all. But if you only sell back a tiny handful each year, yeah, you might want to hang onto them.

 

Another consideration in this case is the fact that the game is Live enabled. If this was a big selling point to the buyer, that could actually be a reason to sell it. If it was never popular online, do you really think that you'll have anybody to play online months/years down the road?

The ones to really watch for are 2D shooters. If you have a 2D shooter from a japanese developer, and you like it at all, hang onto it. Also, I wouldn't assume that any of the SNK stuff (shooter or otherwise) that is upcoming will be released in large quantities.

 

Anything with the Star Wars name on it is published in huge quantities, and tons of gamers don't keep their games forever, guaranteeing a large secondary market.

 

Looking at eBay, I don't see anything published by Lucasarts in the last 10 years selling at face value or more, typically at half face value or less. An ancient Maniac Mansion 2 on floppies sold for $64...I could have made a greater return in mutual funds than keeping an old copy of MM2 around as in investment. None of the Star Wars games are worth more than a small fraction of the original price.
