I'm sure you can find the games somewhere else when you really want to someday.
If they are really rare this is an entirely different story.
I think when you give into temptations of getting too many good deals you end up missing out on the stuff you really wanted to get. It's really gets to you after a while.
It's also frustrating because in many cases (depending on your spending habits) you might need to compromise cash for things like transportation, clothes, going out, dining and you have to get frugal sometimes. It's not worth it.
Also this goes for collecting variants, limited editions, sealed or double copies and re-purchasing games you've already owned.
