VICOUS_VERN

That is soo awesome... I'm jealous.

Anyways, probably Castlevania Double Pack. I was lucky enough to find it, and I got it. Still hav'nt beaten Harmony of Dissonance, yet. Also, I have a Majora's Mask strategy guide... I don't know if it's rare... and it's in awful condition. (Like that when I bought it.)

I have what i think is a pretty rare collection of zelda games, not that i think the games are rare but i think having them all together is rare. I have- gameboy/color/advance links awakening links awakening dx seasons ages minish cap 64 ocarina of time gray and gold, both with original mirror shield gamecube wind waker twilight princess four swords adventures.

I'm not entirely sure about the rarity of these games, so I'll just assume:

  • EarthBound (SNES) - I only have the cartridge, though.
  • Psychonauts (Xbox) - I got it back in 2006, and even then it was rare. Actually one of my friends has it now, though, since my Xbox is broken.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap (GBA) - There are other people posting here calling the game rare, and I have it, so yeah.
  • The Metroid Prime: Hunters demo that came with the original DS.

You're missing several games from the series.

Dicing Knight for the WonderSwan Color. Reportedly, there are only 200 or 300 copies in the world. Got mine for $70 back when it was new, it now goes for $380+ used.

I have Goldeneye for the N64, Donkey Kong N64, and Super Mario RPG for the SNES.

#228 Posted by SoftAsBaboonAss (564 posts) -

I think mine would be Resident Evil Code Veronica for the Gamecube (Mint) It's not THAT rare but its freaking expansive for a last gen game (around 50$ used and 90$-130$ new)

SoftAsBaboonAss

Although I have no personal experience in the matter, I DO love your screen name!!!

:lol:

Also, happy as a pig in spit that I own "Code Veronica" for the 'cube, I never knew it was so expensive!!! Got mine out of the "Please Buy This" bin at a local re-sale shop for peanuts!!! $12.99us, I think it was... Hurray for disposable income (at the time)!

#231 Posted by FortuneInLies (193 posts) -
I have several sealed N64 games including Goldeneye and Mario 64.

Holy cow! I did not know that. Why not just get the Dreamcast or PS2 version? It would nearly cost as much to buy a used Dreamcast or PS2 plus the game as it does for the Gamecube copy alone.

collector's purposes I guess. I personally own the Dreamcast version , which is better in most ways then the PS2 version believe it or not (mainly due to the smoother graphics and VGA support), the PS2 does have the extra effects though.
#234 Posted by jd7904 (96 posts) -

I don't no that any of my games are particularly rare but the ones I believe tob the most rare of my collection are...

MGS twin snakes- gamecube

Ikaruga- Gamecube

Skies of Arcadia- dreamcast and gamecube

evo- snes

gunstar heroes- genesis

sega ages virtua fighter 2- ps2 japan (probably not that rare but hard to come by in U.S. and best home version)

christmas nights- saturn

powerstone- dreamcast

a bunch of dreamcast magazine sampler disks

an xbox 360 that still works.... just kidding on that one

#235 Posted by kyuss015 (293 posts) -

hmm.. You guys have some cool stuff.

Not sure I have some Rare things but i have some popular stuff:

Phantasy Star IV Boxed and complete

Kirby's Dream Land 3

Persona 2

I have others, but theres a line between being rare and being expensive. I wouldnt want to list Earthbound, for example, because it wasn't really rare, just got popular and therefore expensive.

Why isn't anyone posting pictures of their rare games? It must be one or a combination of these reasons 1. You're too lazy 2. You don't own a digital camera or camera phone 3. You're lying and you don't actually own these games Which is it?

you want pictures of some my rare games? sure , I will post pictures of some rare games I own soon, after I finish some chores around here. won't change much though. so where is your picture then? :P
#238 Posted by ksire_68 (1211 posts) -

Shadow Hearts. Took FOREVER to get a copy of this as I was reluctant to buy it online.

Also have a copy of Rez somewhere in my room, though I can only find the case.... The Disc must be buried under the pile of junk in my closet...

#239 Posted by Darkman2007 (17929 posts) -

since someone wanted pictures to prove we have these games, and Im not one to ignore insults and accusations , here are some of the rare games I own.

while some Americans might say the Lunar games are not too rare, they are for me since they were never released here, so its hard to find copies locally, and when you do , its very expensive (Ive seen Lunar 2 go for £80), and importing can be just as expensive.

and here are some games I own which are also quite rare, or at least somewhat expensive and/or hard to find.

Grandia and Shenmue 2 scrape the list because while they are not too rare, they are somewhat expensive considering they are not too rare.

and yes that is Saturn Street Fighter Zero/Alpha 3 there as well as Saturn Castlevania Symphony of The Night,

I could show quite a few more rare/somewhat rare games, but Ill leave it for now

seriously, there is no pleasing some people :P

#240 Posted by x-2tha-z (8901 posts) -
so where is your picture then? :PDarkman2007
My pictures are on page 7.
#241 Posted by Darkman2007 (17929 posts) -

not bad at all , I have to say.

here are a few more games, though some are more interesting then rare.

included here is the Limited Edition of Saturn Policenauts that has that artbook included in it.

Also Savaki , which is very rare , but is not actually too expensive due to low demand, a fighting game with some interesting graphics.

#242 Posted by Heirren (18145 posts) -

I don't think I have anything extremely rare. Only ones worth mentioning would be:

-a handful of Virtual Boy games

-Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy 7 in mint condition original cases.

-Ocarina of Time limited edition in mint condition.

***I say mint condition, but unfortunately the VB boxes and the ENTIRE ocarina was destroyed in a flood:( In fact, ALL my N64 games were.

#243 Posted by x-2tha-z (8901 posts) -
Here's my pictures and some new ones. Shining the Holy Ark, Shinobi X and Guardian Heroes  Conkers Bad Fur Day and Donkey Kong 64   Metal Gear Solid on Game Boy Color  NES Classics versions of Zelda and Excitebike  Famicom Mini Bomberman, Xevious and Star Soldier   Hitman Triple Hit Pack (Blood Money, Silent Assassin and Contracts in one box) and MGS3 Subsistence  Soukyugurentai, Kingdom Grandprix, Dodonpachi, Battle Garegga and Sengoku Blade  Sexy Parodius. Still sealed.  Metal Slug RAM box.  This is definitely the rarest game in my collection. Shinrei Jusatsushi Taromaru. Only around 7500 copies of this game were made. Quite hard to find with the little sticker.  Radiant Silvergun.  Panzer Dragoon Saga.  Shining Force 3 Premium Disc. Still sealed. This was never sold at retail. You had to send proof of purchase of SF3 scenarios 1-3 to the developer and they then sent you the premium disc.  Limited Edition Resident Evil 4 branded silver Gamecube. Limited Edition 'Evil Case' for Resi 4..  Shadow of the Colossus  Street Fighter 2 playing cards. I got these free with a gaming magazine back when SF2 was first released on the SNES. Not sure why I kept them.    Some more of my Famicom Mini games. These are GBA games. Only released in Japan. In this pic there's Pac-Man, Clu-Clu Land, Super Mario Bros, Metroid, The Legend of Zelda and Castlevania.  God of War 2 Special Edition.    Here's some of my Gamecube games. Not the rarest or anything, but they can be hard to find here in the UK.  Demon's Souls Black Phantom Edition. Still sealed.
#244 Posted by FortuneInLies (193 posts) -
Thats a very nice collection you've got there x-2tha-z. I've got several of those myself (MGS GBC, Hitman collection, MGS subsistence, Resident Evil 4 Gamecube) but those famicon mini games really caught my attention.
#245 Posted by Darkman2007 (17929 posts) -

if consoles are to be included in the list, then here are 2 two most rare that I own.

A Panasonic 3DO FZ10, as well as a Mega CD.

neither are special editions or anything , but considering neither system is exactly common (not even somewhat common like the Saturn or Dreamcast) , id wager these can be considerd rare

Yeah, the Famicom Mini games are awesome. Great packaging and very collectible. I'd like to get the whole set one day but they're quite expensive, especially if you want the display boxes to go with them that Nintendo released through Club Nintendo.

Nice. I always wanted to try the Mega CD and 3DO. I seen in your earlier picture you have Albert Odyssey. That's one of the games I plan on getting next. How is it?

Albert Odyssey is a good RPG, but don't expect anything amazing.

I would give it a 7/10 , its good, but its not amazing, the story is decent, the battle system is very traditional too.

its basically a traditional JRPG in every sense of the word

really nice 2D visuals though and some great music.

How much on average would you say a Famicon mini game would cost, and if you know, how many there are altogether?
