Awesome responses, love hearing everyone's take and stories. Except for the lost/stolen ones. I feel your pains! I remember a long time ago, back in the early SNES days. Ever since my brother lost some NES games to a 'friend' theft, my mother would always permanent marker ever game we got with our last name on the back. Well, that didn't stop another 'friend' from claiming a few of our SNES games as his, and we knew they were ours because our name was scribbled out on the back! Oye.
Then there's the fact that I lost all but a few of my 1-5thGen Games (hundreds of games) during a cross country move. I guess that's why I'm so protective now

I'm also very conscious about not getting scratches on the screen of my handheld consoles, however not to the extent that I've actually gone out to buy a carry case yet.
Haha, that always drives me crazy when people do that with my games. I have to go through a scavenger hunt to find the game I want to play >_< "Okay.. UC is not supposed to be there, let's find UC case, Mirror's Edge is in there, okay let's find Mirror's Edge case..."

My younger brother has been known to ragequit. I'm not so bad with that anymore, because I know if they break a controller, they'll just buy me a replacement.
Wow, being around ragequitters would change things substantially. I remember back when me and my brothers were way young, we could throw some tantrums and chuck a cartridge or controller (back then it was harder cause they had wires HAHA). But when I started to really appreciate games, we weren't big on ragequitting or throwing stuff.
I can't say I've ever been big on controllers. I remember stickering up my N64 and Gamecube controller of choice so I guess I've been selective in the past. Nowadays, it's whichever one is most charged. They build them so well and I never have to worry about kids messing with them.

When I was younger, I wasn't really all that protective of games, but then again, I grew up gaming in the era where games would actually last a long time due to being protected by a nice thick plastic coating. As I grew into the era of disks though, I was a little more careful, as I tried to keep disks in cases of some kind (even if it wasn't the original.
Ah, good ol impervious game Cartridges of gaming passed, how I miss thee. Getting a batch of games from our childhood back from my oldest brother (the CD neglector), the CDs were all scratched to death but the cartridges still look solid even sitting all in a box together.

Or be the youngest brother like me! ^_^ Which is funny because I've always been the protective one of the family. Wonder how that worked.
