I don't see what that has to do anything really. This is a mainstream video game site after all, I don't know what you were expectations for the average user, but its silly to complain about such things given the focus of the site.

You can go to a more specialized or dedicated sites where they only talk about games hardly anybody mention here, if that's your fancy. But even in those at least in my experience I hardly ever agree with what the average user seems to think just like here.

I agree somewhat, I asked about actual rare games but hey I'm not really fussed, I actually enjoy seeing what other people have.

The title simply asks for what the rarest game we own is, doesn't mean it has to be the rarest of the rare. Age has absolutely nothing to do with it, it's more to do with how lucky you were in picking up the right game at the right time.

then there's the fact that there's really no way of telling if your game is rare

my rarest game for n64 is perfect dark.:)

#-33 Posted by channtheman1 (1171 posts) -
I'm not really sure. I own Xenogears and FFVII both original black label releases. I have Tomba 1 and 2 and also ICO black label. These might be "rare" but they all only sell for about 50 bucks or less on eBay which isn't really that great of a rare price.
#-32 Posted by Alter_Echo (10722 posts) -

Probably Earthbound.

Edit : w/ wrapping, box, booklet, nintendo power subscription stub, blah blah blah. Pretty much exactly the way it was on day one. Original Copy purchased by myself.

I have a black box sealed Super Mario World with the v-seam that goes between $1200-$2000 usually on Ebay. I also have Starfox, Battletoads Double Dragon, Super R-Type, and Bubsy sealed, but they don't go for that kind of cash.
#-18 Posted by gavindasing (26 posts) -

the rarest game i own is The Legend Of Zelda: Links Awakening DX

#-17 Posted by cornerback3 (3461 posts) -

collector's edition

^probably this...but I'm not really sure how rare this is. It is for Gamecube and it comes with 4 old zelda games including Majora's Mask and Ocarina or Time. I don't think this was ever sold in stores (like Gamestop) but rather it was bundled with the Gamecube for a short period of time.

#-16 Posted by littlestreakier (2879 posts) -

Sega Genesis: MUSHA (US)

Sega Saturn: Rockman X3 (JP), Radiant Silvergun (JP), Street Fighter Zero 3 (JP), Gaurdian Heroes (US), Saturn Bomberman (US), Dragon Force (US), Mega Man X4 (US)

Maybe a few more I can't think of right now *shrugs*

#-12 Posted by TheKungFool (5384 posts) -

I'm not sure about exact "rareness" in industry terms, but a bunch of my PSone RPGs seem to fetch $100-$160 on ebay quite frequently:

Valkyrie Profile, Suikoden II, Tales of Destiny I & II, Persona I & II etc.

If you go by Ebay price my rarest game is The Typing of the Dead for PC. It took me forever to find a copy that didn't have a starting price of $80.

I agree with Earthbound, it's a rare rpg...

And also Monster Rancher 2 & 3 (strange games, but probably not that rare).

Oh and Civilization I for the SNES.

An awesome disc if you don't own the original platforms. I'd be all over it if I didn't. It's a shame they didn't include the best of them, IMO, LoZ: A Link to the Past for SNES, though. And it wasn't because of room on the disc, SNES games are tiny.
