What are the rarest/most expensive video games you guys own? For me it is all 7 .hack games and Cubivore.

Probably Metal Slug X AES. Got it from SNK America directly at the time.

PS2 Ibara is up there as well.

Most of the PS1 JRPGs that didn't have "Final Fantasy" in the name.

This says less about my taste at the time, and more about how I was a total sucker for "anime" style things back then.

Huh. I have em all, but 7 has a tiny little crack on the back of the case since I got it used back in the day.

Kinda wish I could replace my Greatest Hits versions with black labels. A buddy used to work at a CD Tradepost and would just bring me games at random, like black label MGS and Legend of Dragoon. I think I miss him working there more than he does.

I refuse to get PS2/3 games with Greatest Hits though. That red...

Not really that rare. The Gamestop in my town's mall still has a shelf full of them brand new.

Well, where I live I can't find a single copy of Steambot Chronicles for sale. Kind of a shame since I'm always hearing good things about it, but nowhere out here has it (aiming to buy it locally since the places I've found that do have it in their system don't charge as much as people do online; it just never shows up).

Digital releases don't mean that there are more God Hand discs out there.

Emulators didn't make Little Samson a common game.

>>250222962
I doubt those are the steelbook ones. Gamestop recently got a reprint in, and it's just the game in a regular Wii case. Don't think it comes with any extras.

>>250223005
The GBA games are the common Fire Emblem games. Far as I know, Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn are the hard to find ones. Or they might just have a generally high asking price, I don't know.
>>
>>250222496

I dont know why but it was actually expensive for a few years back in 2006 and I sold it $115 on amazon. I guess people realized it aged like shit.

I think the PSN port helped with that. Still, I would assume the price was high for a good while since it's considered something of an essential PS1 JRPG.

>>250223375
Not entirely sure what you're getting at, but where I live, both Fire Emblem GBA games are only about $15-20 and show up often. Meanwhile Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn range from $55-75.

Think Shadow Dragon is only about $20 used for a complete copy.
>>
>>250223290
True. I'm just saying that people that prefer digital, or no longer have PS2's might have felt it easier to sell their physical copy and go for the digital one on the PSN.

Either way, they're not hard to find complete copies of where I live these days. And are only about $18-20.

My copy of Metal Storm for the NES is worth about $50 loose. That's pretty high up there.

Looks like it's worth about as much sealed as a normal wii, worth about $100 used (about double a normal wii) but most of that is probably the game (used price for game is ~$35).

I didn't even get to play those growing up, even with those games being rather current at the time, and it's a good $30-40 at minimum for each of the worthwhile games on the system where I live. Makes me hope they get more reasonably priced soon.

How much are those out there? TTYD's still only $25-35 out here in the states, and a Gamestop exclusive reprint of Xenoblade has helped get the price to a more reasonable, but still frustrating $60 or so (this being after Gamestop was asking $90 for the reprint initially, claiming it was a "vintage" game as justification for doing so).

So it's not worth that much, it's worth about 100 though if it's sealed but chances are yours isn't.

I think one of the guys at Namco recently mentioned that if possible he'd like to do a Xenosaga collection in the future if possible, but whether they can without Monolith's input, or if it will be only for the PS3 or PS4 was up to debate, or something.

Actually been meaning to play Xenosaga myself since I found a cheap as hell copy of III a while back. Still figure I need to play Xenogears before the trilogy though.

I love Xenosaga, like a lot, whole lot, but I'd still say Xenogears is the better game. You can draw parallels and get a little boner when you recognize something from Gears in Saga, but it's really not essential to play it beforehand.

That said, you should totally play Xenogears entirely on it's own merits. Plus, dat soundtrack.

What did you think of the second episode for Xenosaga? I've heard a good amount of people say not to bother with it, but I figure if it's still playable without being too horrid, it might be worth it since it's about as cheap as Episode I these days.

It's arguably the first vidya creepypasta. The rumors about this game existing have been around since before the internet. It supposedly caused people to have nausia, and in extreme cases caused people to have hallucinations and violent outbursts. The most extreme version of the rumor is that the game made people go insane and commit murder, and there's even one variation where Polybius was a government experiment to determine the harmful psychological effects of video games.

The game itself was supposedly a space shooter with lots of strobing lights and vector-esque graphics. Basically the vidya equivalent of a bad acid trip.

Gameplay wise it's something of a shock after 1, and 3 goes back towards 1's style. It's one of the more unique turn-based systems and it really turned me off at first, but I got used to it and ended up liking it, you just need to understand how it works.

To give an example, about mid-way through there was a boss that was really fucking tough for me and I just barely eked out a victory. In my second playthrough, not a NG+ just straight from the beginning again, I managed to beat him with him only landing two or three hits on me, a complete breeze.

In terms of story/character, I don't understand people's problems with it, it's better than 1 in that regard imo.

Too much. Way too much. And as far as I know Sega doesn't even have the code for the game anymore, so they can't even allow for a digital rerelease or anything.

>>250233953 here. A bit of patience and luck can pay off if you know your local stores. The one I found my copy at for that price has a habit of really undercharging on niche, hard to find games for some odd reason. Just a matter of what they get in. And not just with the PS1; they do the same thing for the less popular games on the Gamecube and PS2 as well. Doesn't happen often, but I've saved an assload on games I'd been meaning to look into, but hadn't bought due to general pricing elsewhere and/or rarity.

A lot of "rare" games I have weren't even rare or expensive when i bought them. i had a double-take when I saw the current price of Elevator Action Returns. I paid $50ish for it two years ago, and I thought it was a bit much at the time. Now idiots are trying to sell it for triple digits? Insane!

I've got that too, I dunno just how "rare" that is though.
Unopened Pokémon Crystal, Emerald, Platinum, etc. versions (I realize these aren't "rare' but I imagine that brand new unopened versions probably are worth a bit.)
Don't really know if it's technically "rare" but the NA release of the disc that has Final Fantasy's Eternal Calm back before FF X-2 came out. I know it was included in the Europe release but the only place you could get it without the internet back then was from a magazine that had a demo of FF X-2 included with it. Nobody every knows what I'm talking about.

>>250221017

It's different... they do correct on a lot of stuff and the rogue class is neat but they also take away some of the most fun stuff from the original games like level down/ status penalty or the ability to generate a Mob on a high level area to risk your life for juicy loot and tons of exp (seriously surviving a mob on a <10 level scenario was fucking rewarding)

>>250218926

Great taste OP. Did you get the undubs for G.U? The japanese voice acting was amazing.

>>
>>250235182
Exactly the thing that makes me wonder about it as well. Not like Shadow Hearts 1-3 saw a PSN rerelease or anything that might have prompted sudden demand for the original (and I doubt those games will ever wind up there). I have heard people say that Koudelka and Shadow Hearts 1 didn't sell too well, but that demand wasn't all that big compared to more popular JRPGs, at least back when the PS2 was big.
>>
Guys, don't trust prices on some games. Unless a game is actually rare in terms of it being low print the prices will fluctuate based on popularity.

Remember when FF7 was $70 - $100 around the time Advent Children was coming out? The single most common game in the entire PS1 library was expensive because it was in the mainstream's minds and resellers latched onto that for a small amount of time. It averages at the most $30 for a black label copy now.

Conker, Earthbound, and other Nintendo system games are currently in that same transitional period mostly due to fucking retards like Pewdiepie. The bubble will burst eventually and everything will plummet back down to reasonable prices.

Because in the original .hack games in japan, they had the Japanese voice track, and then a joke Japanese voice track.

Heart Gold and Soul Silver are pretty damn expensive for a decent selling DS game in general. I figure the fact the mechanics/graphics are updated, it's compatible with other Gen IV games with Gen III transfer capabilities, it's some people's first time experience Gen II, while others want it for nostalgia has driven up the price there. Still obscene that it's now more expensive used than it was initially new, and I'm glad I still have my copy.

Gamestop's actually the cheapest place for it where I live these days, asking $50 for it, complete or just cart only, while others ask even more. Disgusting.

Dragon Force is pretty tight; I would love to see a new entry in the franchise, even if it is never going to happen. Slowly taking over other kingdoms piece by piece is lots of fun. Albert Odyssey is 2goofy4u. Every line is practically a one-liner; I love it.

I prefer to use local stores when possible. Not only because finding something you've been looking for an actual place feels good, but I can do my own condition checking on what I'm buying. Also the fact that depending on the store, chances are I pay less buying here than online.

I'm fine using stuff like Amazon for stuff I absolutely cannot find though, or games that are actually new/saw a cheap reprint (like the PS2 SMT titles).

One local scalper store keeps fucking up their prices in a good way.
>Xenogears for $5 (normally $30 here)
>Xenosaga Episode III for $13 (normally $45-70).
>Fire Emblem Path of Radiance for about $10 (normally $55-75).
>Mario Sunshine for $12 (normally 25-35).
>Wild Arms ACF for $18 (normally $45-60).
>Jurassic Park Operation Genesis for $30 (normally $60-80).
>Koudelka for $12 (normally $45-50).
They also had a copy of Symphony of the Night for $12 complete as well, but I let a friend know about that deal instead since I already had a copy.

One Piece Unlimited Adventure. Nothing special but hey, it's near 70 dollars now.
>>
>>250237382
yeah, a lot of times a store can have a game cheaper than dealing with ebay/amazon bullshit. A lot of stores are getting more savvy though, so prices have crept up. You have to be smart with your shopping. I found a good copy of Castlevania Chronicles in a local shop for $40. Not really a deal, but cheaper than usual and a great game to boot.

Yeah I know. Even this chain's starting to catch on. Went to another location a while back and that one had Xenogears for the usual $30-35, so I don't know if the entire chain is getting more savvy on prices, or if the stores just charge whatever they fucking want.

Rarest is Tales of Destiny 2 for the PS1.

Unfortunately it has a Family Video sticker on it that pretty much means it's worthless. Still, that place had some amazing stock and ended up selling all of their old PS1 games to make more and more room for more 360 games. Got Dragon Warrior 7, Monster Rancher 2, and Valkyrie Profile from them as well for $10 each.

I've got all of these except the ps1 games and that xbox game, are they actually rare? This thread is interesting, I never sell my games and generally take care of my stuff, in my lifetime I just put my old games in boxes and put them in the attic, I have alot of old games, well, as far back as master system and nes.

I didn't consider any of them ever as rare though, maybe I should find a way to display my old games and consoles

Probably my US-Region copy of Jack Brothers for the Virtual Boy in terms of sheer rarity.

Most valuable game? I don't know. I've got a lot of stuff. Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence Pre-Order edition in the red box was worth a couple bucks, but I also have shitlike Earthbound in the box with everything.

I don't really consider the prices of these things that much, and some of my other friends are pretty avid collectors as well.

I can say for sure I'm the only person I know who owns that Jack Brothers and mine's the only copy I've ever seen despite going to lots of conventions and trade shows.

Not exactly sure how rare it is but I have the first print run Limited Edition of The Last Story. The one with the story book case and art book included. I've also been told that Paper Mario on N64 is rising in value.

Just to touch on a side note here, how rare are each of the games from the Operation Rainfall trilogy here in NA. I live in Canada and have been trying to find a copy of Xenoblade for a long time but haven't seen one since the first couple months after it released. I got The Last Story at release but I have not seen it anywhere since then even tough I heard it got a reprint. I've seen copies of Pandora's Tower everywhere though. I don't think it has been selling as well as the other two.

There are over a thousand fucking copies out there. People say it sold poorly, but only because it's by Nintendo standards.
Here is an Wikipedia excerpt for Katamari Damacy. A game that sold way better than expected
>Most retailers underestimated the demand for such a quirky game, and only purchased a few copies of this sleeper hit; it rapidly sold out nationwide, with sales surpassing 120,000 units in North America
They are touting that it sold more than 120k. If we compare it to EB, then there are more EB copies out there than KD copies floating around. Even with age and some copies being destroyed, you are more likely to find a copy of EB than KD. Again EB is not rare.

This is really depressing. I'm going to chalk it up to a mix of working too much and not having the right atmosphere at night to feel right playing it.

That and I'm so fucking afraid of Debilitas raping me, oh my god.

I got it for 1200 USD. Maybe could have haggled it down to lower but was worried that he'd sell it to someone else willing to pay asking price. Standard refurbished machines go for 5,000 or more (plus shipping). The machine is in good condition but the pads need some work. Have one cleaned and in the process of recoating the painted sections. The other still needs to be done.

>>250256315
Apparently. I just looked it up and it's 50 USD used. My copy is just sitting in a cardboard box with tons of other games I don't routinely play.

I found an Initial D ver. 3 on CL. The guy wanted $200 for it. Had 2 cabinets and even some of those save cards. But the steering wheels didn't really work right, no force feedback, The screens were burned and green, it weighed a ton and I would need to rent a UHall, last but not least, it was kinda beat up.

That reminds me of how all these fucking idiots were buying up this edition of Halo thinking it would be worth so much money down the road.

We would laugh everytime someone brought one in on trade and got nothing for the stupid fucking helmet and shit. "But I paid hundreds of dollars for it".

It's just a piece of fucking plastic that they made fucking tons of.

People would trade them in or sell them to us anyway. It got to the point where we had more of these fucking helmets than we had display or storage space for, so we took them into the parking garage after working and would smash them when bored.

So fucking satisfying to take one of these things and just chuck it straight down into the pavement and watch it explode.

Fucking idiots.

I just bought it because I liked it. same with Reach. I just wanted the statue.

I was super pumped about finding this one. I'd played on that particular one before and I've wanted one since I first played DDR at an arcade years and years ago. I might have to replace the innards since it sometimes crashes on me.

>>250258824
And that's totally cool. If you liked Halo and just wanted a cool display thingy for your man cave I feel you.

It's the people who thought it was some kind of investment, that this thing would somehow appreciate in value despite the demand for it only ever decreasing, that are fucking dumbasses.

The best part of Earthbound are all the weird references and music that somehow snuck by localization and Nintendo never got sued over by the license holders for.

Like the Batman theme and the Blues Brothers shit. They shouldn't have gotten away with putting that stuff in the game, it shouldn't have survived localization, but somehow it all did...and that makes the game really unique and quirky.

Outside of that it's still a decent RPG, but nothing mind-blowing.

I agree that purchasing and hording sealed copies of games is dumb. They're made to be played.

Also it's pretty fucking easy these days to buy the equipment to reseal shit or just print up new boxes and manuals for things. I've seen a lot of really convincing looking bullshit at different trade shows or fuckers trying to pass that selling them second-hand to independent retailers that would stock that stuff.

Fuck, these days people even buy up shitty cartridges to replace the games inside of them and resell them as either repros or illegitimate copies of other shit.

But yeah games are meant to be played. Buying and hording sealed copies of games is like buying a pint of your favorite ice-cream and just keeping it in your freezer for all eternity.

>>250260110

That pisses me off so much like most people just want the game with case second hand if anything they're losing money by stripping the game to just the disc

Half the fun of collecting is finding it cheap or sniping it on eBay for a cheap/reasonable price.

Again, in my opinion it doesn't have any value to me if it isn't used or I can't use it.

If I owned a vintage muscle car I wouldn't use it as my daily driver, but I would take it out of the garage in the summer when the weather was good and go tear around a bit.

A painting or a sculpture...that's an art object that's made to be preserved and appreciated at a distance.

The only way I could rationalize keeping a console or a handheld preserved and unplayed would be if someone really important personally signed it, or it somehow had really great personal significance. "This is Miyamoto's first Famicom system that he personally owned and played games on." some shit like that.

Good for them. They're exactly the kind of morons bootleggers prey on. They'll never know what the condition of the cartridge inside the packaging is and they don't care.

Any modern printshop can easily run off a brand-new looking box of any kind of game or system you could want. It's just cardboard and inkjets. You just need to provide them with a high DPI scan of the original. From there you can just get the shrink-wrap and a heat gun and HEY LOOK BRAND NEW MINT IN BOX COPIES OF DRAGON DILDO QUEST

Good thing I can just buy the game used for 10$ and G.U. vol. 3 is only worth about 50-60 bucks. I picked up vol 1 and 2 used at a gamestop a few years back, I'm glad I came up on it when I had the chance. I had the Original .hacks since their releases for PS2.
