Trading places: The game that got away

Video game memories; Everyone that plays games has them, whether they be favourable, unfavourable, or merely neutral. What about those games that you regrettably traded, sold, or lost? The ones that got away.

For me, it was the mid to late 90's. I wanted a Playstation, because all these neat games had come out, or were coming out. I decided I'd sell my SNES and its games. Seemed like a great idea at the time, but I lost Final Fantasy II (IV), Final Fantasy III (VI), Earthbound, and Chrono Trigger.

I've put hundreds of hours into those four games alone. They still are some of my all time favourite games and I sold them off.

Sold them off for a brand new Playstation and Wild Arms. With no memory card. *facepalm*

On the plus side, I acquired a memory card shortly after and enjoyed Wild Arms. That very same Playstation was also where I experienced my first playthrough of Xenogears (near the top of my list of all time faves) and Silent Hill (I eat horror games up now, because of this one game).

What about the rest of you? What games or hardware have you lost that you felt were amazing?
