    Well that's pretty much what you said. People who just focus on buying and owning games they like playing aren't collectors, they're just regular gamers. You're not a collector unless you buy stuff beyond "stuff I like to play".

    There's nothing wrong with people who collect full sets, rare games, hardware variants, etc. Those are the kinds of people that this forum was made by and for.

    You guys can keep pushing your false narrative if you want to conjure up something to be offended about, but the facts are as they stand. I don't care who does or doesn't regard themselves as collectors, nor am I looking down on anyone here. This hobby should be welcoming to all, and generally speaking, there are enough copies of games for everybody, regardless of what they choose to do with them. Yet this topic is loaded with posts looking down on the very sorts of collectors who this forum was created by and for. So really, who's being the elitist here?
