I've decided I'm not going to play the bulk of my PC games anymore, including a ton that I never actually played.

I'm debating whether to sell them singly, sell them as a group lot, or what.  I'm going to give the list, no prices, and I just want suggestions at this time.

REPEAT:  I AM NOT SELLING THESE YET.  I JUST WANT OPINIONS ON HOW BEST TO SELL THEM ALL. biggrin

Caveat:  Most of these games are not complete.  I have no boxes for any of them other than 2.  Some are jewel case and instructions, some are jewel case only.  These are not meant for "Collectors".  These are meant for people who play games.  So don't get your hopes up when I do sell these. biggrin

Here's the list.

Ugh...that's dangerous to post here.  I'd say try to get them sold through here, let it simmer a month to see who it going to take on it, then ebay the rest as a lot.


BTW, dibs on the SW games (except KOTOR)

I'll throw $20 at you right now for Diablo 2 + Expansion.

I'll throw another $15 at you for Master of Magic, if it's got all its manuals.

Yes, I can read and saw you weren't selling yet in all caps.  Too bad.  I'm making offers, biatch!  Dolla dolla billz, etc.

And lol, my friend used to have that Software Toolworks Challenge Pack.  I've never seen a copy of it since then, nor have I ever even heard of it.  If you hadn't listed it, I could have been convinced it never existed.

As for advice:  list the games, sell the ones to people who ask for them, then bundle the rest and send it to ebay.  Also, know your game values.  I see you don't have boxes for most, which sucks since you have some rare games collectors would want.  Specifically, hold on to the Wizardry Collection and Freespace 2 -- check ebay prices on those, they should be high.  Might want to check Leisure Suit Larry also, there's a decent cult following for that.

You might want to sell them individually since I doubt anyone (here, at least) would buy them all in bulk.
From my own experience Ebay a mixed gamble, sometimes you'll get somtehing decent and at other times you won't get what it's worth, up to you if you want to take the chance or not but you'll make something regardless of what you do.
You could put your asking price (including shipping) next to each game, and wait for the offers to come in.

I'd be interested in buying Freespace 2 and Unreal Tournament, and then battling dreamshadow to the death for the starwars games!

Since it's too late....

I'd probably be interested in all the Freespace ones, Starlancer, Maybe the Wing Commander Ones, and may start a bidding war with Dreamshadow of the SW space sims slywink

BTW, I obviously think it's good to post here, see what goes, then bundle the rest....

I'll echo what everyone else has said... sell the individual ones that can bring some cash, (Diablo 2, Freespace 2, etc.) then bundle the rest and ebay it.

Okay.  I'll start the sale here.

Here are my rules, and I'll repeat them in the actual sale thread.

1)  Nothing is for sale until it appears in the actual sale thread.  The sale thread will be updated continuously, new things will be added, et al.

2)  Price will not include shipping.  Reason is because some things will weigh more than others, and combining items will save on shipping.  I'll put the shipping price estimate for -just- that item after the price.

3)  First come, first served.  I'm not taking 'dibs' on anything.  I know there's going to be some fierce competition for some of this stuff, and I don't want hurt feelings (although I might not be able to avoid them).

4)  There's going to be more than PC games on this.  I'm going to try to unload a lot of stuff, so be prepared.

5)  I prefer Paypal.  I can handle other forms of payment, but it may delay my shipping if you're not whatever we're calling a gold trader is. biggrin

6)  Have fun!
