It’s important to keep your games in good condition to be able to make the most of them for as long as possible. If not taken care of, games can deteriorate in condition and may even break. We have put together some top tips for looking after your video games:
- Keep them in their original cases. Putting them into larger wallets that contain multiple discs and games might save space, but it also makes damage more likely. The sleeves won’t be as protective as a proper case so it is easy for games to scratch. An original box will do a much better job.
- Clean your games regularly. Use a cloth designed specifically for this purpose and never use abrasive cleaning fluids. Make sure you remove all traces of dust and dirt.
- Handle your games carefully. Don’t put your fingers all over the surfaces and make sure you don’t drop them.
- Do not write on games using ordinary pens and pencils. If you do need to mark them, make sure you use the correct kind of pen. Even when using the correct kind of pen, any markings might affect their resale value.
Follow these simple tips to make sure you can play your games for years to come. If you look after them well, you may even be able to sell them on and make some money out of them.
