I see this all the time including on these boards. People DETEST greatest hits packaging and strive to get the original labels for all their boxed games. But I don’t think most of them are THAT bad. What are your thoughts? What are some of your favorite/least favorite examples?

I don’t think the PS1 Greatest Hits series is that bad for example. The green = money saved in your wallet
The N64 examples also seem to be rather cool in my opinion and have a cool seal even on the game label:
The worst offender, in my humble opinion, is easily the Xbox Platinum Hits with it’s odd silvery box that clashes VERY hard against the normal green boxes:
But still, it’s not so bad if you get a few of them for your shelf and sort by color. (You may think this is blasphemy but I never sort alphabetically… I always sort my shelves by size/shape/color to prioritize visual aestetics).
Most importantly, I’m not above grabbing the greatest hits version of something if it means I can save a few bucks and can ensure I have the latest version of the game that has potential bug fixes too. So, what are your thoughts? Do you buy Greatest Hits style games or not?
