    I've only ever traded in games that I got from a trade that I absolutely don't care about. Otherwise, I have all the games that I ever bought or obtained.
    The first game that came into my possession was either Pokemon Yellow or Sim City for Windows DOS, though.

    I bought Fallout 3, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Borderlands, Soul Calibur IV, Tales of Vesperia, and Dead Space at the same time that I bought my Xbox 360 and I still have them all...

    The oldest game I own is probably Diddykong Racing for the N64. I think that was the first title I had with my N64. Unless Super Mario 64 predates it, I had that too.
    Though we have a bunch of NES and SNES games in my house too, like Chrono Trigger.

    I only traded games in during my xbox360 days as a console gamer, since I had a job, but not one good enough to fund all the games I wanted.

    I still have the first game I ever had, a gameboy shooter by the name of Battle Unit Zeoth.

    I can't remember ever trading in games, but I can recall some games that I've lost or given away.

    When I was younger I had to trade my games in because, well, I needed the money to put towards new games. I kept some for years, but when you haven't played a game, know you probably won't play it again, and see something you want to play, we parted ways.

    I'm trying to hold on to my games longer now, unless it is so uninteresting/bad that I feel dirty holding onto it.

    These days I trade in everything. Longest game I kept in recent memory was Alan Wake.

    Before that I played my flat mate's copy. Then bought my own. Traded that in. Then bought it again.

    The game I have kept the longest? Most likely would be Legend of Kage for the NES.

    Sonic for the Sega Genesis.

    I have almost every single game I've ever owned, minus a few that I couldn't be arsed to keep because they were so worthless.

    Honestly, I'd rather have the nostalgia a few years down the line instead of the $3.75 I'll get for a $60 game at GameShit.

    Not to mention that you can get good money once the game is well out of print.

    I have sold some rare games on Ebay for $250 or more.

    Probably my old NES games like Talespin, Super Mario 1 & 3 and a few others. So that'd be closer to 20 years, maybe more. Still play the games sometimes with the NES, but since the connection method to the TV is not really compatible with digital signal input, the console is mostly collecting dust. Still wouldn't sell it though, because it works and, well, "Ah the nostalgia".

    The only games I have physical copies of ATM are my 3DS games, 3 N64 games, and 2 SNES games, but those were all bought within the past year. If I had to guess, I'd probably say Pokemon Diamond. I got it at launch, and played it through 2009, with over 400 hours logged.

    I used to trade in games all the time, cause I didn't have money for new games, and at one point in time (From like 2008 to 2010), I had an "addiction" to trading consoles for other ones on craigslist and whatnot. I've had at least 3 Wiis, 2 360s, 2 PSPs, and other consoles that I've traded for. Right now, all I own is a 360, 3DS, and N64. Had a Wii, but I gave it to my mom and little sister for them to play.
