Question: Why is there some much hate towards gamers and collectors buying from ebay and online sources?
Many people enjoy the hunt of finding games locally or at conventions, etc. You can buy almost anything at anytime of ebay so some collectors thing of ebay as cheating. Similar to beating a game using infinite lives etc, yeah you beat the game but not truly the way the game was intended to be played. Same with ebay but do not let what someone else thinks or considers to stop you from enjoying buying the games you are wanting. Not every store has all games or items in stock all the time and sometimes online is needed to help fix that. So just do your thing and game on!
