I recently returned to my old state where I was able to visit my favorite spent shops for both console games and PC games. I returned home with 25 new games procured for about $75, easily averaging less than $5 per game which is my soft limit. Thing is, I had no way of knowing if these games would be valuable for entry into MobyGames since I am not equipped with, e.g., a cellphone that has web access. Wouldn’t you know, almost all of the games are already in the database, though there are some odds and ends for me to fill in regarding cover art scans, screenshots, and credits. But overall, good coverage.
So it seems that I’m getting to the point that I can’t just pick up random games and expect to find something that is not yet in the database. However, that doesn’t really square with the fact that every single time I visit my new favorite local thrift shop, I find random games that are almost certainly not entered yet.
