    Just curious. I sold Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance about a year ago, and just rebought it today, so obviously I regret letting that one go.

    Other games off the top of my head are the Elder Scrolls games, Arena and Daggerfall.

    Baldur's Gate, I never had time to learn the battle system so I got rid of it.

    I bought and loved Knights of the Old Republic, and I would like to go back and try Baldurs Gate, but it's too late.

    I will second Metal Gear Solid: Substance. I sold it with my PS2 and would love to get it again and finish it. I need to get it for the Xbox now.

    Usually I do regret selling certain games. Some now though I hold onto no matter what because I know i will regret it later. The biggest, and most expensive, regrets were the SNES Final Fantasies and Chrono Trigger. It was rather expensive getting those back. And I NEEDED the originals, not the emulations or the PSOne versions.

    I generally resell my games right after I beat them and while they are still fresh. This way you get a great majority of your money back. This way I am able to play the latest and greatest for a very minimal cost.

    Most games have no replay value to me once they are beaten.

    So, I have only regretted selling off something maybe 5% of the time. These tend to have a terrific replay value. I have repurchased a few things over time, but it's nowhere near excessive.

    I just don't like stacking things I will never use again. So, I have a tiny collection.

    I actually quit selling games for a long time after some regrets early on. Picked it up again though, since I haven't gone back and played a lot of stuff again recently, and I've been buying a LOT more games. I still regret getting rid of a bunch of NES games though, including Castlequest (always wanted to go back and finish that one), and The Immortal (interesting isometric game that nobody remembers.
