My brother managed to get me this for Christmas: a copy of the original F-Zero, factory-sealed. I have no idea how he found it, but here it is. It even still has the original plastic hang-tag on the back, and no price stickers. Pristine condition.

It's one of my favorite games, so I'm terribly conflicted. Do I open it and be the first to play it in the 20 years it's been sealed in this box, or save it? Some friends have told me to keep it as-is, while others go with the "games are meant to be played" routine. Yeah, it's a Player's Choice release, so it's not the original run of the game... but still, it almost feels like a crime to break the plastic.
