    Well, it's time to buy Madden '03 for my PS2.

    I was just wondering if anyone would be willing to chime in with their experiences selling games to stores for cash or credit. I've never done it before and I imagine they really discount the game, especially a year-old sports title. I'm thinking of getting rid of Madden 02 and NHL 02. What's a fair price and is it even worth it?

    Josh,

    I tried to trade in my Xbox copy of NFL 2k2 at EB today. They offered me 5 dollars for it. I said forget it and kept the game. I am sure they would offer something similar with Madden. I would check Ebay to see what the going price is there. Good luck.

    These days I just keep all my old games unless it's a real stinker...

    Sports games are the fastest depreciating video game genre. Unlike other styles of video games that may have unique gameplay in older versions, there is rarely a reason anyone would want to play an older version of a sports game.

    If you tried a few months ago, you may have been able to get a reasonable price for it. I doubt you'd be able to get much more then $10 anywhere now...

    That's pretty much what I expected to hear. I guess I'll keep the game. Thanks for the heads up.

    I either trade mine in after the season is over (that particular sport's season), or give them to a friend or family member. I rarely keep them if I can get rid of them.

    I've never played a previous version of a football game once the newer version was out, with the exception of GameDay ('98 was the best one!).

    Even if it were only 5 bucks, I'd take it - because that 5 dollars has more value than an old game. Of COURSE I would try to get as much as I could - but I'll seldom hang on to a game (especially a Sports title) once a newer, better sequel is out.

    But that's just me - I am not a collector. I know that's not a popular thing to say in these forums, though.
