I believe I already posted here but my rarest game is probably my copy of Dragon Force for Saturn.

It's probably not worth the most, but I've got copies of Star Odyssey and Pier Solar for the Genesis.

I think the rarest stuff I have tops out at around $250-300. That complete-in-box TMNT: Tournament Fighters goes for a lot more than I expected. I've also got almost all the PSX RPGs, including Suikoden II.

I have SnowKitty's first edition copy of Pier Solar and his thank you letter for backing their project. Was considering donating it as part of the holiday auction, but couldn't let it go :(

So this topic keeps coming up with the marker that I've posted in it before and I couldn't remember when. Did a search and found my original post:

viewtopic.php?f=28&t=13355&p=128739#p128739
If you're going by strict numbers of what was in the wild, then my rarest game is one of the Vectrex homebrew carts I have. Expanding the definition to include retail releases, then I believe Ogre Battle is my rarest game, as the SNES version has a very small print run. Fortunately, the number of people interested in it are similarly small, so I was able to get my copy for a reasonable (around $30-40) price.


It's belated, but I'll update my rarest game owned now (got it 4.5 years ago):

You will be driven off by my attack cats. And by driven off, I mean distracted by giving them attention until I can club you with my autographed Portal gun.

No kidding; I'd be distracted sneezing myself to death. I'm allergic to cats. Abort mission.

Probably my rarest is Dice Puzzle for the Atari 2600 I don't think any of the games published by Panda really had a high production count or sold well so most of there games are not very common. No listings on Amazon currently and all the eBay listings are around $40ish BINs which is pretty high for an Atari 2600 game.

Not super-rare really but I guess I would say my "most expensive if you bought them on Ebay now" list:

Dreamcast

-Seaman - Minty
-Canon Spike - Minty
-Pier Solar - Like new
-DreamPassport 3.0 - New ( I hear screams now.....I paid 50 for it recently so it was rare to me)
-Grandia II - Like new

Mine probably aren't that impressive comparatively, But I'm proud non the less.
