My brother owns Panzer Dragoon Saga (european release) which is quite rare. Sells on e-bay for hundreds. Do you own any really rare games?

I've always wanted to start a proper collection, but it just seems a bit too geeky. Plus the girlfriend would never let me.

Mari-chan Kiki Ippatsu.

Only 100 copies were ever made and most of them have been destroyed by a long-haired girl that came out of the PC monitor of the people who owned them.

none of my games are really rare. but going off of Gamespots collection, I have a few games that not many people claim to own.

-European Soccer challenge (atari lynx) says 7 users own it

-Viking Child (lynx) has 26 users claiming to own it

-(a few other Lynx games that are relatively hard to find)

I have an original black label version of Crash Bandicoot (it seems less common than the Greatest Hits version)

and I guess some of my 32X games are somewhat uncommon like Kolibri. Awesome game, and it's selling for at least $29 on Ebay (i think i paid $10 for it)

In terms of rarity, probably my copy of Valkyrie Profile for the PS, but in terms of value, it is hands down Radiant Silvergun. Ironically Radiant Silvergun is not a very rare game, at least in Japan.

I don't really have anything too terribly rare. I have a handful of some of the more sought after titles, though:

  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1)
  • Marvel Super-Heroes: War of the Gems (SNES)
  • Mega Man Legends (PS1)
  • Record of Lodoss War (Dreamcast)
  • Super Castlevania IV (SNES)

Not really anything... I didn't play anything really niche before the PS2 era, and niche games in the PS2 era aren't too rare. I own every Shin Megami Tensei game on the PS2 and most of those aren't even rare. Devil Summoner 1 and 2 are somewhat, but only because they were released so late in the PS2's cycle. Devil Survivor Overclocked only sold at Gamestop and Amazon, so my used copy is worth about 40 dollars right about now, but I wouldn't consider it rare.

In terms of legacy games, I don't think I have anything that could be considered rare.

The rarest games that I own as of now is Radiant Historia for the Nintendo DS and Ys I and II Chronicles Premium Edition for the PSP. Atlus is going to do a reprint of Radiant Historia, so there's no doubt that the rarity of that game will drop. The prince for Ys I and II Chronicles Premium Edition will probably remain the same or increase since the PSP is practically dead. There was never a huge demand for the game to begin with, and with the release of the PS Vita in the next two weeks, a reprint will most likely never happen.

Bubble Bobble 2 - Surprisingly this was not my purchase. My sister surprised me on year on a birthday with it, because she knew it was a game I was eyeballing for my collection. :D

A grey cartridge of Ocarina of Time version 1.0. Very few of these were made and it's a misprint cart. The serial number on the front says it's version 1.1. I know it's not because I can do all the glitches and the stamp number on the back doesn't have the A after it. My cousin's friend, who is a HUGE collector of retro games, offered me $400 for the game. I didn't sell it, but from what I know about it, offers for this particular copy can reach up to $900 under the table.

The rarest I have is probably a copy of Ogre Battle for SNES complete with everything in mint condition, Revelation: The Demon Slayer for Gameboy Color complete in box, and Earthbound in the big box with guide. I also own a copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga complete in near mint condition.

Rarest? I have no idea. We had Majora's mask in the gold cartridge with the moving Link in the front that was in the best condition like it came out of the box (we did play it yes, but we made sure nothing happened to go the to ruin it and it would always run perfectly) but then one day when my brother was in the hospital, my cousin asked to play it, then kept it on the edge of a counter and it smashed to the floor, ruining the outside of the game forever. Our cousin was never really forgiven for that due to how hard our parents worked to get us the game, and how we made sure it was safe and in perfect condition, only for stupidity to stand the cartridge up at the edge of a counter top and stand there as it fell, while I dived for it in vain. Other then probably that once rare game, I talked to a video game store clerk about how I had all three Fatal Frame games and he flipped out. But I don't think all three of the games are rare. I have Digital Devil sage 2, but not 1. But I don't think any of these games are rare, just hard to find.

Double Dragon (Genesis)

FF7 Black Label not really rare in my book (PS1)

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (GC)

Ikaruga (GC)

Command and Conquer (N64)

Nothing really crazy listed I'm sure I have something better but I'd have to look through my entire collection.

Woops, forgot that I also own Ogre Battle for the PS, Persona, and SMT Nocturne; all rarer than Valkyrie Profile I believe.

Can anyone tell me how to access that Gamespot collection thing that shows how many people have certain games? That would help me out a lot.

I don't really know if I have any rare games or not, and which ones are more rare than others.

I think that this one is sort of sought out more than a lot of retro games, though.

The disc is mint.

I've got the Zelda Collection on the GameCube too, but didn't realize it could be a rare game?

Hm, apparantly the old cardboard-y type box Shadow of the Colossus is quite rare. :)
