Years ago i had to sell my whole gaming collection to pay bills for my mom who was out of work at the time from being sick. I lost so much :( Hundreds of hours from my rpgs and fighting games. But would i do it again? Yes because you do what you can to help the people you love.

Although still to this day i have not gotten another copy of Parasite EVE 1, Lunar Eternal Blue Complete, Grandia, and Suikoden 2. They cost to much money now :(

When I bought Advance Wars Day of Ruin, played it halfway, then the cartridge decided to corrupt my save data.

No sweat, played through it again almost 3/4 through all the missions...Then my cousin somehow manged to break the dang cartridge.

Bought a new one a couple months later, got to the same point, then I lost the cartridge somewhere.

To this day I still have not beaten it.

For a couple of years as a kid, my parents fell on hard times, and they couldn't afford to get me any video games. I was also too young to work. Not only that, but we couldnt afford even cable.

It was a dark time. No video games or any kind of entertainment. I really had to go outside or to a friends house and play with them to keep my sanity.

It was so awesome when they got back on their feet.

I played WoW for 2 years.


You win. I was just going to complain about a PS1 motor burning out and somehow corrupting my memory card when it did. There went a few hundred hours of FFVII...among many other things...

Several hundred hours worth of saves on a GC memory card. I leave the room to grab a drink and when I come back, I found out my 2 year old nephew flushed it down a toilet.

When you eliminate the impossible, whatever is left, however improbable, must be the truth.

A similar event happened to me 4 years ago, this resulted in the loss of my PS2 memory card I had for 5 years, there was really invaluable data that I worked my butt off to get this far.
