I bought it myself, again I have a decent amount of the games, but between having them all together, and fleshing out my collection, all for the price of an XB360 game, I had to.

Yeah same for me. I have most of them already, but some I can't find the CD, others I don't know where the cd-key is and it's nice having them all in once spot. For the price you can't go wrong.
