Default PC games off of Ebay.

I was wondering, can I play games I got off of Ebay online? I guess It really depends on ther seller.

What I was wondering is have any of y'all bought any PC games off of Ebay if so did it work online?

It'd be fine if you buy a brand new game off ebay...but I wouldn't buy a used one.

not like BF2 or HL2...or anything.

if they use the CD-key, it's pretty much like just buying packaging.

I'd never buy anything like that off ebay. I bought CS:CZ once and got screwed.
