Do you keep the games you're unlikely to end up replaying?

I made a similar topic in the past, but just wanted to know if some of you do or not. Doesn't have to be because you didn't like the game. Maybe it's just more about "having it there whenever needed" sort of thing.

No, if it's physical and I bought it in the first few weeks I'll trade it in because of the high trade in value if I don't think I'll replay it in the next year because after that it's probably on Gamepass or at least a lot cheaper.

Yeah I keep my games even if I don’t think that I’ll ever replay them again. I just really enjoy having and maintaining an ever growing collection of games.

Like @Archangel3371 said above, I too keep my games when I know I'll never get to replay them or not and this goes for all my digital games if they were giving the chance to trade, I wouldn't even do it. One thing I like about digital gaming is the fact I have no intention of reselling my games nor give them away. Even all my physical Nintendo games never get trade or resell. And besides, their are times I like to replay the games I beat like Golden Sun for example, got it day one and never ever trade it or resell.

I always keep games that I enjoy and series I have enjoyed. I think there's more insentive to keep as backwards compatibility has been introduced. I sold my 360 collection but recently got the urge to replay red dead 1 and max Payne 3 so rebrought.

I keep all my games, always have. Still have all my games dating back to my Atari 2600. The few I have gotten rid of I regret now, like selling my game gear and a few crappy ps1 games like Dragon Heart (the movie tie in game).

I keep everything. I started my son off on retro systems when he was younger and had him work his way up to the current systems, which was the Gamecube and Dreamcast days. If he ever makes me a grandpa, the grandkids will get to do the same.

I keep almost all of my games even though I don't really have time to replay them.

Well for most cases ,I highly doubt that any click and point adventures have a high amount of replayabiity which I could go back multiple times in one year. Otherwise I would never think even ask for a refund let alone resell under my personal value of the game/system which luckily is nowhere near around scalper prices. When I sold the original 3ds I only asked for 25 dollars with the 3 physical games and 36 gb SD card i had for it

I usually end up reselling them . But sometimes no one wants what I have, like Call of Duty games.

When i had consoles i never bothered to trade in games or sell them to people.

I wish you could still do this though, especially on PC because i do buy a lot of games i only played briefly but you can't resell games these days because once you activate them, they are locked onto steam.

@speeny: entirely depends on how much I liked it. If I was able to finish it, and enjoyed it a solid amount, I’m keeping it. If it’s too hard, 90% of the time I sell it Ditto if it‘s frustrating in some other way.

I think games are less frustrating now, and better made, so I now keep waaaaaaaaay more than I used to. Like probably 90% or more.
