I hate box/case damage.
The shrinkwrap or cellophane is just keeping it new and fresh but the case is part of the game and its value to a collector.
I have a few sealed games which aren't 100% sealed or have a tear here and there but that's okay, I care way more about my sealed games that have an obvious crack in the case, even if it's just a tiny scratch.
Broken pins inside cases is the worst. I hate hearing them flying around in the case, probably leaving small scratches on the disc's surface cussing!

Box / Case damage definitely. I'm often not too bothered about whether aor not the plastic has a price sticker on it - What I hate is when stores would plaster huge stickers onto Snes / N64 and other Nintendo boxes, which is actually damaging the actual product. If they are on the plastic then that's fine as I know the actual game and box below is 100% perfect

If a game is sealed and perfect except for a small crack on the case then I consider this worse than if a game was sealed and only has superficial damage to the cellophane. Obviously if I have bought a game which has been listed as "Sealed and perfect" then I would be annoyed if I received it in any other condition. A broken case is worse as the game below the plastic is not in good condition - In regards to PlayStation and Dreamcast games, it's not really too serious though as the cases are easily changed, although squashed Nintendo boxes are a more serious issue


You might also want to add "Loose discs" to the options. I hate sealed games that have loose discs and / or loose pips rattling around inside, and seem to receive too many these days due to being knocked around during transport

Case damage is much more worse.

Wrap is much worse. Sealed is still sealed. Even if the game was damaged under, it is still an example of a new, never touched game, despite the trauma. Once the seal starts tearing, the underneath is going to start getting damaged anyway, so it's the worse of both worlds.

A perfect box/game is much more important then plastic to me.

The plastic is there to protect the surface of a game, but isn't part of the product itself, so it's much more important that the box/case be in mint condition.
