    I don't doubt the OP saw some stupid thing that shouldn't have happened, or that other people don't have real stories.

    But the collector mentality is also a bit dumb at times. There's a not insubstantial group that seems to freak out over slaps and shoves and utterly normal game stuff. These games are meant to be played that way.

    Quoted from jar155:

    These are meant to be played and manhandled to some degree.

    This. The "does the shooter lane have wear?" crowd that likes to look at games, and glue toys on them, and enjoy their LED color choices but not actually play need to relax some.
