I am a gamer.
There, I said it.
Not like I’m admitting to an addiction or anything, I just enjoy video games.
I do, however, have a major issue when it comes to them.
I hate used games.
Just knowing someone else has already opened up my game, has had their filthy paws mawing all over my disc, and doing only God know’s what to the case and the material inside.
Makes me shudder.
In my collection of Xbox games that I have accumulated over the last 10 or so years, I have in my possession no more than 2 or 3 games that I bought after someone else had gotten done with them, and they only came into the herd because they were games that could no longer be bought brand new.
I am the same way with most of my electronic gadgetry. So much so that when I do purchase a product, it can’t be the box at the front. No, not that one at the front. That one that every person who has looked for the same thing has touched. “Defiled!”, I say to that one. No, I reach behind that one for another one. I inspect the box because it has to be in the best box, no corners smashed, the original tape still in tact.
Used just isn’t for me.
Unless it’s a car.
New cars are just crazy expensive.
