Nothing wrong with multiple copies when you can afford it but there is something wrong when you cant afford it and are jealous..

So a few people buy all Chronos and what is left is the Vegas stakes for others to feast on.

Who complains? Merely pointing out that the healthy demand of CT is kept alive by the fact that supply will never be enough to certain collectors.

I buy two of nearly everything I own, purely for condition reasons. I feel my odds of having a perfect copy are increased with multiple examples until I find one I feel I can't imporve upon. I imagine it's the same with CT collectors.

CT's are flimsy by nature. I feel there will always be doubt that someone has "the best" and thus, the eternal pursuit rages on.

I'm just psyched because while all these thousands are being passed around, an absolute dream auction I missed 4 years ago was relisted, and I think I can snag for maybe under $20.00. 3 Days to go...well see.

Don't you get it?
Simple example.
You see a queue in a super-market. People are starving and want to buy bread,
Then comes Abramovich and buys all bread at once. People are f**ked up and dead.
Too much resources in the greedy hands is a horrible weapon. Very Happy
Don't buy for fun!

Not a good example bud. Games are luxury. No rules on luxury. No rules on food either for that matter. People who can eat, eat. People who can't die. That's Darwinism.

So you can let people die in such situation? Not even a chance?
I am not talking about "rules". I talk about quantity here. If you keep buying for fun - you're ill.

People die everyday, not to be morbid. I could spend my life giving everything I have to others, and then some bird knocks a vase from a 10 story building and I'm killed instantly. Just life.

But again, you shouldn't mix the inequalities of life with a microcosm of sealed game collecting; a community whose numbers are dwarfed, I imagine, by other such groups as...say Japanese panty collectors, or licked stamp aficionados. All in all, we're not a good sample size from which to bounce off issues of the day.

All i have to say is - don't buy just cause you can afford it and you have a copy already. It is silly, it is greed. Someone else may want it as well! Be cool goddamnit! Hall of the Mountain king it is, some people are sitting on piles of CT's while others could barely have a chance.
World is unfair.

Yes, life is unfair. There are those who can afford Chrono and those who cannot. The haves and the have-nots Smile

you guys are only buying games to be the envy of others.

The one and only collector I can actually agree w/ is Startyde since he collects for sentimental purposes not just because other people think it's great.

I think everyone else started there but it just got out of control.

I personally only collect games I've played at some point and liked.
