    This should be an auto reply for anyone that mentions leaving their games to their children. They are not going to give a fuck, and your collections will be a burden to them when you pass.

    Absolutely, sell them and give them cash instead.

    I agree. I can't imagine the sacrifice of space even in my house, which is pretty big. It's aesthetically sad to have a stack of old school games. Kids don't play that. They just want their ipad or their iphones. I feel bad for kids whose parents are hoisting this "old school" shit on them. It ain't like when parents introduced their kids to Bowie and the Rolling Stones, where at least the kids would be able to share that appreciation of the music with other music lovers. These classic games are a door into vacuum.

    You can barely share these games with someone in their early 20's let alone the kids of today.

    My kids could not care less about old video games. If it isn’t Minecraft or fortnite or whatever it doesn’t matter because it isn’t online.

    What about people who's children die before they do?
