I bought half life used, and bought every one since new. The original one didnt sell me in the store. But by chance I got it at a garage sale. I would never have played half life 2 without that first used game sale. So what do I do now? Wait till they are in the bargain rack. I guess they still make a little money, but now I do it with almost every game. Hurts them a lot more than it hurts me.
