I’ve been selling my videogame collection. During my sales with the people of Craigslist a few have been asking if I’m a collector that “lost interest” - the answer is yes.
I don’t play them anymore.
They take up space in my small apartment.
Old games also look like shit on modern TVs (unless you get an upscaler).
I hate the console business model.
Collecting is just organized hoarding.
I’m not quitting gaming or anything stupid like that I’ve just switched my gaming to Steam. A laptop hooked up to a TV with some Xbox 360 controllers takes up considerably less space than a bunch of different consoles.
I don’t regret buying all the games - entertainment has a cost. I enjoyed them but now it’s time to move on.
Videogames should be a compound word. We can make this happen if we work together, it worked for snowman!
