Be a Hardcore Gamer at an Affordable Price

Population of video gamers have grown amass during this past few years.  A great number of them own their own consoles and most of them made it a point to collect every different type of gaming console and games if possible.  What is more surprising is that, not only teens or young adult have joined the league of the gamers, there are those on their 30’s or 40’s and even those who are on their retirement that is getting hooked with video games.

One possible reason is that the games today have been more realistic and tailored to fit any ages, plus the fact that the genres of the games have grown so complex that everyone is free to choose which type of game fits their taste.  Not to mention that the sound and the graphics are very entertaining.

One downside of being a gamer is that game consoles are pretty expensive, especially on the most popular ones and those rare editions.  And this is what I hate most, video game hoarders, they are hoarding too many copies which can only explain why a video games would be sold out in just a matter of minutes.  Hoarders are looking at the gaming world as business, they will hoard until there would be a scarce of this item in the community and they will sell it on a higher price. 

One has to wait months even a year before the same title reappeared on the stocks.  It’s pretty okay if you have the money to spend on those hoarders, but at times that you do not have that kind of resources, what can one do?  How can one enjoy the pleasure of playing his favorite video games without resulting to too much spending?  Here are some of the great tips that you can use in order to enjoy your favorite video game at an affordable price.

Online trading.  Do not belittle the power of virtual shopping and the never ending possibilities of the online marketplace.  Game trading is so popular online; you can either join selling or reselling on some sites and forums.  You can not only find the latest games here but also the rarest.  If you have a game that you enjoy and you no longer need it, you can always post it online and ask for another person to trade his video game in replacement for yours.

On some instances where you do not possess the game that a trader requires, you can ask him to swap with your game and agree to add few cents.  Your negotiating ability would be put to a test here.

Next thing you can do is hunting for discounted video games online.  Most of them have their own personal sites, use your socialization skill to befriend them since I have a feeling this won’t be the last time that you would do business.  Here’s a tip, discounted video games can be mostly found on social networking sites, be sure to check out every day since you are not the only player on the lookout for this low priced video games.

Third thing to do, is to go download demos and try out games before you buy them. There are plenty of free trail version of games out there. Stay away from full download sites, if we want the gaming industry to prosper and continue giving us high end games, we must purchase the real deal.

Last thing to do is to create your own personal blog about gaming, trust me you will be swarmed with hardcore gamers and will eventually find people who want to trade their games, you can also get some of it for free by asking those gamers that you will post their ads for free in exchange of their  video games.

But remember to check each of them whether they are in a good quality since it is already pre-owned by a gamer, chances are they already played it more than 10 times.  And also look out for those scammers; be very careful when trading online since some of them are there to take you preciously owned item.

    Does this actually work? I’ve never actually heard of anyone doing this before…nobody’s offered me any games since I started my blog, at least ;_; XD

    (BTW, hello! You guys are apparently following me and liking my posts so I thought I’d return the favor :D)

    Yup it works, first is to grow your traffic and target the right audience. An additional tip is to put a chatbox on your blog where gamers can interact with others often. Once you are gaining a reasonable amount of traffic, create a post to inform everyone that you want to get rid of your old game cds. No body will offer you to trade for their games unless you initiate it. 🙂
