Used games have existed for a very long time since the very first existence of video gaming. No one complained about them since then, until 6 years ago around 2012-2013, a year before the Xbox One and PS4 launched, and when the Xbox One originally was gonna be a DRM-controlled console that prevents used games from being played, which caused huge backlash against Microsoft from consumers and hurt their Xbox One launch sales. Then Microsoft immediately got rid of DRM from the Xbox One altogether.
The funny thing is you never hear anyone in the car/automobile industry, housing industry, or film industry whining and moaning about consumers buying used cars, used houses, or used DVD/Blu-Ray copies of movies because they don't make as much, if not, any from used purchases, just like with used game and hardware purchases.
