Which do you prefer? Myself, I won't speak for FF, but if there is a non-FF game I really want - and it just came out, I might be tempted to buy the new. On the other hand, though, money constraints might make me wait.

Why would I bother myself with getting a used game when I can possibly and easily get a new one for myself? I prefer my game to be played first by me, then I can resell to others that fancy playing an already used game. It's a lot more fun when it's still new.

Actually, the used/new are the same and stores won't sell CD-Roms with scratches. However, though, there does seem to be a fascination with new, even though there is no real difference.

Some might simply want to avoid the expense, especially when, as noted, the new and used are practically the same. That also might even be the case when the used is readily available.

Personally, I would consider new ones to be superior to the used ones. I strongly doubt I'd would be convinced to buy a used game. Would it be price that I'm considering to make a little savings from buying a used one? What would be different from the cost between a used and new ones wouldn't be that much, so I would prefer to have a new one.

Now a days we have steam. I dont see much point of used or old or new. Game is now just a game. Nothing vintage in modern games. Vintage used to be old game which has the genre set. And also they were on console and arcade.

Unless it's for the need to cut expenses, then I would completely understand why one would be considering getting a used game over a new one. If the the new one and old ones are the same just let like you pointed out, why then are they being differentiated? There is no such thing as being the between used and new game in my opinion, new one is a new one and used ones are used ones.

I don't really see any difference between a used or a new game CD rom in the sense that they are almost the same. Also, when I play the game and there is nothing like some stops inbetween, I wouldn't mind buying it from a pal. All I want to do is to enjoy playing the game and whether it is used or new doesn't make much of a difference.

When you consider the cost of getting the game new, you will realize that there is more to playing it new. I would always prefer getting the used one for there is no much importance placed on playing the new one than the used one. It is almost the same as long as you get a better one.

I haven't bought a used game for quite some time. Is it even possible to do so anymore, considering that most games are now tied to player accounts ?

I'm glad to see that you attached the condition "as long as you get a better one". This is the reason why I'm against getting used game, there is no way to discern if it's in good shape. So I hate having to be worried about if the game is in good shape or not.

These days I don't mind if the game pack is used or the new. It just does not matter much. What matters is the game is playable. And that's why you should be making use of either way.

I think new stuff is better off....
Thanks so much for saying that, there is no way to compare a new game and a used game. They are 100% different in my book and I wouldn't blindly chose a used game over new one with the view that they are the same thing.

Well then I can agree with you on this one, in as much as it doesn't matter if the game is new or used, what matters the most is if the game is playable and enjoyable and if the answer is yes, then it's definitely worth playing.

I don't even consider buying them for any reason, the new ones are a lot better so I don't have any reason for looking at getting used ones. I'm quite sure that used games are still being sold.

New games are more preferable to me as I would never consider buying a used game even for the lesser cost it may come with. I grew up with this mentality of having flair for non used stuffs, so I can't start buying used games for starters.

And another part we have systems like steam these days. And that makes it a bit easier for us to make use of the old or new games. As the games stay in cloud.

This is so true, I have always enjoyed the steam aspect of the game as they make the games a lot more fun and enjoyable to play always.

This is another part of game development that I so much loved, making the steam version gives one the opportunity to have the game anytime one feels and it would be like a new one because of being in cloud.

I have a huge love for the steam version of these games because it makes the game more enjoyable and satisfying from all playing perspective.
