Have You Ever Lost a Game?

I recently bought Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire for N64 (for under $5!). After testing it to make sure it worked properly, I went to put it in my collection, right next to Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. And to my horror, it was gone! It wasn't in my N64, and I'm nearly positive I didn't trade it or sell it. And if someone were to steal it, why would they take just 1 game?

This is driving me nuts! I know it's easy to find and cheap, but it's the principle, dammit! Where did it go?!

Tons, but most were "lost" as in I let someone use it and I forgot WHO I let use it. My previous copy of Maken Shao, Metal Gear Solid 3, Sly Cooper 2.

the only games I "lost" were PS1 games that my brother lent to his friends without telling me back in our teens

and then he forgot who he lent them to

I had 80 ps3 games now I have 79. I know I had 80 because I had 4 even stacks of games with 20 in each stack. I can't even figure out what game I'm missing. It's been driving me up a wall. From now on I'm taking pics of my stuff.

I few, but nothing recently.

I lent Tourist Trophy to my cousin several years ago and when I went to get it back he said that he accidently traded it in when he traded all of his PS2 stuff. I'm still a bit bitter about that one . . .

Also, although it wasn't my game I felt terrible about this. Back when Pokemon red and blue first came out, my little brother got Blue version from my dad (I alread had red version). We went out to breakfast that morning and my little brother left his blue version at the booth. When my dad and him went back to see if it was still there, it was gone. He was totally destroyed seeing how he wanted that game so much and ended up losing it the same day he got it.

I've never lost a game. It goes in my system, I play it and when I'm done, it goes back in the case. Right now I only have a gaming computer so I physically can't really lose games anymore as everything's digital (besides the 3 or 4 games I have a physical copy of but they're stored away in a big box in my closet).

I misplaced my copy of Super Mario Deluxe once in my mom's car and found it several years later...after I found it I finally completed the Lost Levels levels :P

I've lost a lot of my older games. My intellivision library was decimated from losing games. Mainly because it was in storage for such a long time, and the games were sort of strewn around. I also lost Golden Sun for the GBA, playing it one day, let my sister borrow my GBA and the game was never to be seen again. I really liked that game too!

I have had games stolen. In college someone stole my pre-Square Enix version of FFX--just the disc though. So I still have the case, I ended up just buying another, but it was then when all the labels switched to Square Enix.

My Game Boy/GBA collection is so huge and unorganized that I wouldn't know for years (if ever) if I lost a game. I don't think I have though. My dog did just chew up one of my PSP games though. Hopeufully, that's the last time that happens.

Video Games I have lost?

"Pirates of Dark Water" a 1994 beat-em-up by SunSoft for the Super Nintendo.

I'm not sure if I lent it out to a friend who never returned it to me, or if I was simply careless and misplaced it during the couple of major moves my family and I had to make over the years.

Either way, I lost that game, which my brother and I enjoyed playing years ago. And, no: he didn't steal/lose it, in case you were wondering..........

Yes. It broke my heart. I started talking again six to eight weeks after that though. I think.
#25 Posted by NirdBerd (2116 posts) -

I have lost over 10 games, yeah, but I wouldn't call it 'losing'.

My brother used to steal them when I'm at work and give them away...

While I was getting out of the Marine Corps, the movers must have "aquired" part of my collection seeing as though it never arrived. Included was a box of about 110 Xbox games, and probably about 20-30 360 games. Also, several controllers and other accesories went missing as well....

I had my room broken into while I was in Iraq, and I had a PS2 stolen with 20-30 games.

Having such a large collection it is often easy to misplace a game whether it is lost or not. There have been several times I get a sudden urge to play a certain game, and it comes up MIA. However, that has not happened in recent memory.

Other then those things happening, I have not had much of a problem... lol I know that sounds bad, but I will consider myself lucky I didnt lose everything in a fire or the likes. Plus owning a large collection there is a bigger chance that something might happen to a small percentage.

Although that doesnt take the sting away... I;m still mad about that big box of games I lost in the move... sometimes I still "half heartedly" browse through things in my garage thinking it might magically appear again someday... sigh.. oh well, some people have no moral values. I feel more sorrow for those jerks then I feel for myself. They are the ones that have to live with it, and I can say that since my past wasnt entire angelic, dealing with those demons can be hard later in life.

I lost Super Mario Kart when I moved, it doesn't make sense because it was packed away with all my other SNES games, but that one went missing.
I also 'lost' a copy of Streets of Rage 2. I say lost, I took it to a friends house several years ago so we could play it, I left it there by mistake, went back to get it a couple of days later only for my friend to claim it was never there. Even though we played it. Together. And I left it there. And she knows that.

I lost quite a few games one time when I was moving from one state to another. They just dissapeared...

I've also 'lost' quite a few games by letting the wrong people 'borrow' them.
