Which was my point, when I said there are collectors in the warmer (or colder for that matter) parts of the world too, most folks are just too paranoid about it, been collecting games for over 30 years now, and I have yet to see my first game die on me (unless I dropped it, but that doesn’t count :lol: ). I used to be able to see my breath, when I was playing games on my grandma’s attic during winters in the 80’s, but my stuff always kept working ;)

I have an unfinished attic that gets wild temperature swings. It would basically be like me storing stuff outside to store things up there. I would imagine that the paper and plastic used in the game manuals cases and discs would get brittle after awhile from the temperature and humidity swings.
