How to keep your game collection manageable

If you are trying to keep your collection from growing out of control, I have some recommendations that have helped me. I have about 180 games now, but would have many more if I hadn't adopted the following policies. Of course, this only applies to people trying to keep their collections small--if what you want is a HUGE game collection, full of games you are unlikely ever to play, go for it! I buy games to play them, and collect them so that I have the games I want to play.
None of these are hard and fast rules--just general guidelines, and I break them all from time to time. I repeat: these are general guidelines, and don't always apply--break them whenever it seems like a good idea. But following these guidelines has kept my collection under control--the total number of games in my collection now is only 15 more than when I first posted these guidelines, almost a year ago. My collection now consists mostly of games I truly enjoy, and hope to continue playing.
Oh, and all of the examples are only my opinions--I've purposely chosen game other people tend to like for these examples to emphasize rule #9.
Have any suggestions for more guidelines? Feel free to suggest them in the comments, and I'll add them if I think they belong.
