I usually keep the games I like, especially if someone else here might want to play or replay them sometime. Sometimes we play games as a family. On those occasions we know right away if its one to share or save. & Sometimes we send one to a friend we think might enjoy a game as much or more than we did. But most stay right here smile

This is easy.
I keep them all and replay most of them.
Heck I even have old Atari, Nintendo, Intellevision and Tandy stuff.

I keep all of my games. Must have 150-200 games. Some of the old ones were never finished, because there were no walkthroughs for them. Now with the internet I've been able to get walkthroughs for nearly all of them, so I do go back & play the old ones.

I keep them all. Though I'm afraid the game boxes are going to have to go soon in order to make room for my children.

I keep 'em all. I used to trade away the one's I didn't like, but as my BAAGS syndrom has gotten worse, I now horde everything! I don't like to store them away, I like to display them on my bookshelves. So I've got all the shelves full, and now I'm just stacking them on the floor in front of the book shelf until I can get out to buy me another shelf.

It's funny - I'll have friends over to visit, they'll see the bookshelves full of video games, and they'll go up and take a look. And they NEVER recognize any of the games. Why? Because they don't play Adventures. They play all that other stuff.

Visit The Fate Of It All website for demo and updates.

I keep everything. I have written so many walkthroughs, that people e-mail me personally with various requests for help; and the ol' memory can't do it all.
That will be ten Dramoi.

I keep all of my adventure games*.. I give the occasional, accidential purchases of action games to charity.. I do not know how many games I have, drawers and drawers full.. I do not keep cardboard boxes, however.. My house is too small for that...

*(although "Quiet Weekend in Capri" and "Forever Worlds" are making me think I may get rid of an occasional adventure game as well)

Maybe like 98%. Since Myst I have been collecting and saving because they are all like favorite books and movies I want to experience again and again. Now have stacks of games shelved on the walls of my computer room. Finally got an older second computer up and running so I can now get back to the many games collecting dust (like Obsidian, one of my top 3 favorites) since getting XP with my latest computer. The only games I can remember giving away are the first Prince of Persia and The Day of The Tentacles. Not my cup of tea at all. wave
