What do you do w/ games or consoles that stop working?

When your game discs or cartridges stop working, or even when your console stops reading games, what did you end up doing with them? If you try to get them fixed but to no avail, what happens then? You can talk about both in the past and nowadays if there's a difference.

I used to just call in.

Then I learned about computers, and a lot of the issues of consoles run into usually are quite easy to fix.

Warranties be damned!

I keep them. I still have my old DS Lite from when I was a kid even though it's not much more than a glorified paper weight now. I just like having it, and I don't see myself getting rid of it any time soon. If nothing else it looks cool. I also still have my last 2ds which stopped reading cartridges.

I still have my GameCube, it turns on still, it just doesn't read discs anymore. I've still kept it though I guess for sentimental reasons. That console was a staple of my childhood, I can't bring myself to toss it out. I could probably try getting it fixed, but it was never much of an issue since the Wii was reverse compatible anyway.
