There are two big advantages buying second hand. Firstly there cheaper so you could save a decent amount of the new price. People might say only its only a tenner but ten pounds is still ten pounds. And you can be ever so smug when you have waited an extra week to buy a game but saved some money towards your next purchase. Plus waited that extra time you can find out whether it's any good or not.

Secondly it helps the enviroment because everytime that a game is made it uses our natural resources such as oil in the plastic case, paper for the manual etc. So just think if your re-using the materials you are helping save the enviroment.

Ps i may get banned for this but who cares?
eh?

I buy a lot of second hand games, mainly because they're cheap.

Thing is, most of the DC second hand game's i've bought tend to b*gger up at a certain point...so i flogged 'em to some stupid lower school student at school.

:D

You won't get banned.

2nd hand is good. I managed to get myself a 2nd hand copy of MotoGP (before SR re-stocked it) for 20. Seeing as it's now near impossible to buy one at all for even 40 I was quite happy with meself.
