Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

Someone once asked me a very long time ago...
Why is it I am not worried about my pinball machines "losing value"?
I gave them a straight answer.
As a collector not an operator, I don't buy games to make money off them.
I buy games because I like pinball, especially when it comes to new machines.
Pinball ≠ "investment".
Pinball = "fun".
Otherwise a person is buying games for the wrong reasons, as a private owner.
This is something that seems to be getting lost in the translational meaning at times today.
The only true reality is if you take care of them, and learn how to fix them properly, they will RETAIN their value.
The absolute best part is you can still play them the whole time, not just look at them unlike other hobbies such as baseball cards.

Well said!
