Vast majority? WTF are you on about? These are all good/decent games. Some of the games are extraordinarily good from game design POV (Super Mario Bros 3, Starcraft 1&2, Super Meatboy)

Super Mario Bros. 3
Disney’s Donald Duck: Quack Attack
World Heroes Anthology
Digital Devil Saga
Digital Devil Saga 2
Resident Evil Code: Veronica
Breath Of Fire: Dragon Quarter
Bayonetta
Excitebike
StarCraft II
Starcraft
Ivy The Kiwi
Disney’s Tarzan
Super Meat Boy
InFamous 2

15/28. 13/28 !=vast majority. In fact there might be more good (or atleast mediocre) games in that pile, I just personally haven't played them so I can't say whether they're garbage or not.
My WTB thread (Sega CD/Saturn games)
Also looking to buy: Ys III (TG-16 CD), Shadowrun (Genesis) Hori N64 mini pad and Slayer (3DO) in long box/just the long box

The real shame is that those games will just sit on a shelf 'til the end of time and never be played. Not trying to start a flame war or anything, but seriously, if you're not a gamer, you shouldn't be collecting games. At all. All you people are doing is artificially inflating prices to the point where REAL gamers can't afford the good stuff because even loose copies have gotten WAY overpriced. For example, Earthbound is not that rare and no way is it worth anywhere near what it goes for these days, but because "collectors" decided it was gold, the people who would actually buy that game to play it can't. And there are lots of other examples I could think of, too. It's almost impossible to find a good deal on anything anymore thanks to you people. And don't tell me to "just use emulation" because that is not a defense.
I'm not a glitch, I just have pixlexia.

You are correct, and with the grading it got even more insane.
However, the demand is really really high. And speaking about Earthbound, the more time flows.. the worse these boxes become. So the better copies will gain even more value.
The GOOD games are raising, the worse ones dropping.

The real shame is that those coins will just sit on a shelf 'til the end of time and never be spent.

The real shame is that those stamps will just sit on a shelf 'til the end of time and never be used for postage.

The real shame is that those comics will just sit on a shelf 'til the end of time and never be read.

The real shame is that those baseball cards will just sit on a shelf 'til the end of time and never be put in a kid's bicycle spokes to make it sound like a motorcycle.

What gives you the idea that the people collecting sealed games aren't gamers? You don't invest the kind of time and money required to collect sealed games if you don't already love games to begin with.

Many sealed collectors also own "play copies" and whatnot, you know. Who are you to decide who is and isn't a REAL gamer anyway?
