Bloodline Champions, they added a bunch of extraneous poo poo like talent points and trinkets before they put it on Steam, so even though they finally had a massive player base they ruined the gameplay

I was young enough that it'd felt like I'd spent most of my life playing that game when that dude broke the one disc. I was pretty heart broken even if nothing much happens till the end after disc 2.

Disc 2 was actually really borked too so I ended up doing that one FMV fight thing when you're hanging from the flying armour at maybe 1FPS, closer to .5FPS the entire time cause I hadn't saved in ages.

original No One Lives Forever CDs, I was eating chicken noodle soup when I was younger and I spilled it all over the CD case and cleaned up everything on it and around it but not in it and by then the already scratched CDs had layers of crap coated on it that refused to come off

Pretty simple really, met a midget on the bus, we rode the same route every day and spent quite a bit of time talking vidcons. We traded games one day, I beat mine, returned it to him and he said he forgot mine at home and would give it back tomorrow.

I never saw him again.

I try not to anymore, but the tales he told me of drunken dwarven conventions where there was a lot of inappropriate midget dick groping were well worth the half a sandwich I originally paid for Dark Cloud.

Metal Gear Online from the subsistance version of MGS3. Nothing will replace shooting dudes around the corner as Ocelot or body slamming Snake as a Rumble Roses girl.
Mgs4 mgo was such a letdown.

All 3 copies of Metroid Prime: Hunters. All vanished without a trace.

Bowser's Inside Story, I know you're somewhere in my belongings, but im between houses and cannot unpack.

Genesis, Nes, Snes, Dreamcast, N64. Your necessary cords never made it through the past three moves.

I had the experience of my brother stealing a game for drug money years ago, and just last week I saw a listing of a cart that had my initials on it on ebay.

I bought my old game back and it still had my data on it.

giant box full of copied PS1 games my 10 year old self had bought all by himself from the weird lady down the street, lost when a stepbrother took them all

my friends copy of Devil May Cry 4 I had to buy again cause someone stole it to sell for crack

most of the games the next door neighbor loaned us lost when a bunch of psycho kids seiged my house and broke in through the window to steal my stuff

400 hour morrowind save, lost cause someone sold my xbox for crack.

Crack is basically the root of all of my lost game problems

disc 2 of FFVIII that my friend lost before he tricked me into taking it off his hands

I didn't even pay him for it but I still felt cheated when I finally checked under the instruction booklet. He totally knew.
