E-peen derailment? E-peen derailment.

SPOILER: (highlight to read)
Since about 1/4 of my collection is "sought-after" to some extent, I decided to limit this pic to only stuff that's worth $100 or more... and crap, I forgot to include Dicing Knight in the shot. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUU
Totally not being an egotistical braggart. At all.

Actually, you sort of called me out with that Shining Force III claim, so I'm curious as to what all you have in the League of Extraordinary High-Brow Gentlemangs.

Actually I'm fairly sure its my only real rare game.

Its also the only game I own for my saturn. Kinda hard to be a collector when your job doesn't pay well.

*sigh* I totally know this feeling. It's even worse when they keep cutting my hours but then tell me that I'm the best worker they have. Kind of gives me mixed messages.

Zwei wins the rare games collection. My somewhat-kinda-sorta rare games are Suikoden 2, Tetris DS, Electroplankton (I don't have it yet but supposedly the manager at Gamestop who I'm sort of friends with ordered one for me) and that FFVII black label with the typo that I got from you. lol.

yeah I dunno if some games I have are rare or not because I simply did the research.

Tomba 2, Arc the Lad collection, Shining Force 2, I dunno.

Heheh, you;re welcome. And thanks, I've been collecting rare games for years though. Technically a lot of the "rare" games out there aren't really rare (productionm-wise), just sought-after by the many while there are few willing to part with their copies. ... I feel kinda bad introducing an e-peen factor to this thread, but then again, I'm jealous of all the Califags on these forums and their easy access to west coast conventions and other events. :P So I guess we're even.

You should move here!


EDIT: Oh, while not really about rare games, I also thought I should mention that I'm a sucker for games with their original box and manual (Zwei already knows this lol). So the other thing I'm proud of besides my somewhat-kinda-sorta-almost-rare games are my Drill Dozer game in mint condition with a perfect box and all the inserts, and recently my dad gave me his Perfect Dark game with the box and manual and everything. I actually bought the Drill Dozer game JUST BECAUSE it had the box and everything. Yes, Zwei, my obsession with games boxes is worse than just "I won't buy this game because it doesn't have the box"

Heh, and I thought I was OCD with my collection. Nice find on Drill Dozer, I only have the cart for that.

Same here. I only buy games that have a clean box art and manual. I'll only buy a game that has a beaten up box and manual if I don't really care for the game, or if the game is really rare. And then I'll hunt down a copy of the game that has a nicer cover.

Been playing Perfect Dark ZERO for awhile now after I took a break from Perfect Dark. Loving the game much much more now that I understand everything from the story to the direction with the changes and additions in the gameplay. It all makes sense. At the moment I'm running through it in Secret Agent. w00t!

I also picked up Bayonetta brand new for $40 the other day. I've yet to play it. Also picked up Dead Or Alive: Paradise on its day of release. Can't play it cause I still don't have a PSP. =P

And finally I played alittle bit on my Xbox lastnight and plan to continue playing it til the 15 arrives.

I'm pretty lenient with NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Gear, Game Boy, and GBA games, since most people neglected to save the boxes for those. :/ (and Gamestop didn't sell used GBA games with their boxes because it took up too much space... bastards.)

I'm like DF with the rare game collection. I have all black label versions of the Square Enix PS1 library (FF 7-9, the 1-2. 4-6 collection, Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Ergheiz Vagrant Story...wait Tactics is green, FFF). Aside from that, I think Digital Devil Saga prt 1, the J-special editon of Zone of the Enders 2 are the "rarest" games I got. Unless we go into Dreamcast land (Mark of the Wolves, MvC2, Plasma Sword).

Well, I was playing Metroid Prime Wii about a week and a half ago, but then I finally got all five seasons of the 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon (eff yeah) on dvd, so I haven't touched Prime since then. I should be getting back to it pretty soon, though.

Also, not much longer and I'll finally, finally get my hands on Splinter Cell Conviction.
