I was wondering do you buy special editions or game of the year editions of games, after buying the original? If you do, is it really worth the extra money?

I'd generally think it's foolish to buy GOTY/SE if you already own a copy. I'd feel terribly ripped off if that version contains more content, sure. But I won't go buy a new instance for it, regardless. In the modern days of DLCs and whatnot, I'm sure that can be circumvented now.

Never if I own a copy - or if I do, I sell my vanilla copy. I did that with Fallout 3, as the GOTY version was so much cheaper than buying the DLC separately. I'll do the same when Borderlands comes out, as I refuse to pay the asking price for the DLC. I didn't buy the LBP GOTY edition as the included content was kind of dumb (outside of the MGS level pack). If I didn't own the game before it would have been a must buy, but the sheer fact the game's DLC consists of costumes and stickers makes it an easy pass for existing owners.

Morrowind's GotY version was huge. I didn't get the game until years afterwards, but I don't think it would have been much of a question with all of the content that was included in the Tribunal and Bloodmoon expansions.

I only really buy Special Edtions of a game when theres worthwhile exclusive dlc eg. the Masterchief armour in Fable 2, But I'd only buy a GOTY edition game for something like Fallout 3 or Oblivion when ALL of the dlc is on a disk to get the full game Experience

I usually don't buy GOTY editions of games but I'm thinking of doing it for LittleBigPlanet and Fallout 3. I already have both of those games in my collection but I want to get my hands on all of the DLC Fallout 3 has to offer. I'll probably end up selling my regular editions on craigslist or something like that.
