[QUOTE="x-2tha-z"][QUOTE="FortuneInLies"]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. FortuneInLies

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.


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

There's 30 games. Each set of ten has its own box - 30 games, 3 boxes. The cost depends on the game. Some are really cheap and others are hard to find and more expensive. The complete sets are expensive. Check out the links for an idea of the cost.

Full Set including boxes

Single game more expensive

Single game. Bit Cheaper.

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

Darkman2007

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.

Is it true Albert Odyssey has freezing problems? I've been thinking about picking it up lately, but a few people have been telling me it freezes very often, like once every two hours.

Not sure, I don't really have any that are really that rare. Xmen Chiildren of the Atom was one of my favorite finds, which I found it at a flea market type store, for only $5 ! I guess my library of 32X games may be a little rare, then again a lot of people didn't keep any of those, so they may be floating around somewhere.

Nice. I have both the Genesis and the model 2 Genesis. Even though the Model 2 fits better on my Sega CD side mounted attachment, I prefer the initial launch Genesis hooked up with it. It just seems like a better build quality, not to mention you can hook up the head phone jack to your reciever and have stereo sound, vs the mono sound. My jaguar and T16 are a little rare, but I still want to grab one of those 3DO's ! I remember a friend of mine having one when we were kids, and I thought Need for Speed looked so awesome! If I do get a 3DO I will have to get NFS for sure! What are the best games for the 3DO?

#258 Posted by datsrcool (25 posts) -

Im not so sure about rare, but i have gc component cable(rare in US),OoT collectors edition, nes top loader modded with rca output and red power light,

chrono trigger, ff2,ff3 and mario all stars with mario world for snes. Also got cib conkers bfd. also all ff on ps1 cib. Not all are rare but are not cheap to come by.

the model 2 Mega Drive does have stereo , just out of the AV port, so its actually better (though some rearly model1s have better sound due to internal circuitry.

as for best 3DO games, I really only own a few games but I like Need For Speed, Road Rash , Flashback , Killing Time, Star Fighter, Gex and Star Control 2

Oh, I thought the model 2 Genesis only came with the video cable and the white audio cord, therefore only producing mono sound? Well, didn't know that, so then I guess the only reason I would prefer my model 1 is because it looks so damn sexy!! :)

no , the model 2 does produce stereo, just through the AV cable, though that does mean its a bit harder to connect it directly to a stereo system unless you get splitter cables. though personally for my older games, I connected my TV to my computer speakers, which aren't amazing , but its much better than just through this TV. Model 1 looks nice , youre right there, though the model 2 doesn't look bad (even with the PAL versions having red buttons :P ) though really I can't think of any system I own that looks ugly as such.

I might sell the games, but the console is fine. Plus, where else can i play Mutant Rampage. It's like the only of 3 good games on the system. However, I will probably be the only non-biased fan to say Link: The Faces of Evil was a decent game. Call me crazy if you want, it was decent.

Why is this and some of the other games in the main and X series still holding their value today? I would think with the releases of Mega Man Anniversary Collection, Mega Man X Collection, and the various releases between Wii Virtual Console and Playstation Network that the value of these would start dropping. But they haven't.

I've pondered upon this myself and I can't figure it out either. Usually when a game gets the re-release treatment on a compelation or on XBLA it drops in price, at least a little bit. My guess is that it's the collectors that are keeping it so high; they want the actually SNES cart and not a digital version (even though it's mostly identical) on a differen console. Because of this, the SNES has just been impossible to collect for, especially with the rarer/valuable games.

you have saga and never knew it was rare, or better said: expensive?

awesome game right? I once sold it for money but bought it back because I missed it so much

#289 Posted by bultje112 (1867 posts) -

btw are we posting here rare games or expensive games? most games posted here are just expensive, but not rare. rare is in that very few copies of it exist.
