I purchase gold and the company shares.
Both remain less financially risky, provide higher profit margins, easy to sell when required, and I never need to worry that I will never actually receive what I bought for my money meaning direct stock.
Anyone that holds into a game long enough will at least break even, play the game the whole time, if they learn how to maintain what they own. Those that rotate there games less than year later always take the most risk and want to gain the most profit.
Non-distributors who "vault" NIB games in boxes should cut plexi-glass windows, as it might offer some form of entertainment.
Note: There are still some amazing finds out there such as a recent TAF Gold discovery secured in the shipping box since 1994 near Chicago. The only thing that was done was battery removal. It does happen, but not because a private owner was a hoarder. It is still not for sale.
