Buying Games BRAND NEW vs. USED

With everything that's been going on in the world,
and considering that second hand "used" games play
(give and take some scratches as well as the normal wear and tear)
just as good as "brand new" games.....

Do you buy BRAND NEW or USED?


Rockn.

Really just depends on if I have cash on me or not. Normally if I have the money I will buy the game new, unless of course they don't have it New, then I will go used.

I try to buy my games brand new as much as possible, but if it's something that I can only find sealed on eBay for a crazy amount of money, I'll hunt down a used copy that's in NM/M condition and complete.

I prefer new games, but I only have so much money X3 Marf, gotta settle with used games sometimes, especially when my local Gamestop has special deals. They don't have new game deals that interest me too often.

I like new games. Feels like Christmas every time I strip away the plastic and look inside the case. If a game is hard to find and a lot older than most, I'll buy it used.

It only depends on the availability for me. If they have the game brand new, I buy it, if not, I couldn't care less about playing with an used one.

I used to buy new exclusively. Now I find myself hunting down old or rare titles used on the Internet. Also, you can find some games $20 cheaper and in great condition, like The Conduit. You just have to know where to look.

But if it's a game I know I'm going to love forever, I always go new. Like Metroid Prime Trilogy; that will not be a used purchase, although common sense would tell me to get it used since I already own all three games anyways.
