If its been played then its useless to a buyer as they will need to purchase an activation code/license for it, I had the same problem with a game and ended up buying it again so you may as well just buy the retail/origin version from the getgo, or all you've bought is a backup Dvd that you cannot play

the game is locked to your origin account.
so unless the seller gives you the login its useless.

The days of buying used games are gone. All new games require that some type of online DRM that requires you to log in and register the game. How many people do you think will bother unregistering the game? Do you really think publishers like EA and Bethesada would allow a user to unregister a game so that he or she can sell it to someone else? Game publishers do not make any money off of used games.
