You probably wont believe me, but i had no implications or notions other that what was written in words. Im simply a very blunt and direkt man, and this sometimes makes people like yourself misunderstand me, since many people DO have underlying meanings..
I appreciate that you are trying to clarify the situation, but I didn't misunderstand your posts. The underlying message and words written are one and the same.
Sure, i dont particularly like seeing so many of the same items just being stored in a collection.
I'm not sure how many different ways I can state the same thing. The games are NOT just being stored in a collection. They are traded (or sold sometimes) whenever I see something new or something that I think should be upgraded in my collection.
As I stated before, just 3 weeks ago I took one copy of every game in my collection and sold a complete US 3DO library.
I didnt see it as necessary to comment on what you did with duplicates since you had already said you used them for trading etc.
But then you keep saying that the games are just sitting in my collection???
If you go back and read my first response to your question, you will see that I answered without any sarcasm or grief even though I had a feeling for where the topic was headed.
It wasn't until you started with the morality preaching and hinting at the ridiculous notion that I am somehow making it difficult for others to collect for the 3DO that I decided to take issue with your posts.
I guess it depends on how one defines hoarding. In bitrate's case, even though he has a ton of duplicates, he has been pretty generous w/our tiny community when you stop and think about it ... he has shared stuff that I (and I bet most of us) never even knew existed. When I can see pics or vids of games, accessories, articles, etc... of stuff I've never even heard of, let alone seen, it's like going back to the mid 90's all over again. At least the collection is in the hands of someone who really appreciates.
Thank you for the kind words Trev.
