I don't hate people who do it, it's their prerogative, I just think the act of doing it is stupid.
What's the point of having something you have no interest in playing? Idk it's weird, I get your point but at the same time I don't think it applies fully to video games.
There are people out there who are probably interested in playing that game but instead some random hoarder has it in their collection with no intention of touching it.. They can do it sure.. but it doesnt mean that it isn't kind of douchey.
Some people get their enjoyment from different things. I disagree with it not applying to videogames. I think it actually fits pretty well. Some people might want to collect every GBC game or PS1 rpg. I don't have the cash or interest to do something like that but woudn't fault anyone due to it. Still have memories of collecting pokemon stickers as a kid.
It shouldn't be as much an issue anymore due to the large amount of games new and old available as digital downloads (Huge filesizes aside) I have no issue with people like that. They bought the game, it is theirs. Don't really see how it is douchey.
People who buy games in mass to sell at an inflated price do annoy me but you can't really call them collectors.
