    Default What is the Single RAREST Item In Your Collection?

    Not hardware, not a peripheral, not memorabilia... a single video game, be it cartridge, cassette, CD, or DVD. What's yours?

    Choplifter III for Snes.. Or so I gather..
    It could be Blackjack for the NES

    I don't have a guide yet that covers SNES and Genesis.

    Hmm . . . For me, it's probably Radiant Silvergun, Keio Flying Squadron, or Panzer Dragoon Saga.

    you could certainly call it a rare game, although its as much a matter it being highly sought after. you could argue that tengen tetris and chrono trigger are not truely rare also but the demand for them is so great that they become holy grails. in short, if you see a copy for cheap be sure to pick it up!

    got a Phantasy Star complete last weekend for $5.00 along with a Shinobi, Outrun, and Alex Kidd in Techno something or other.. The guy who was selling them at the flee market thought they were genesis games. They were all in such great shape I didn't even argue the fact that they were SMS and just gave the guy $20.00

    I guess by that logic I could throw in the 3 Chrono Triggers I own as being rare lol.

    I'm guessing mine would be the Atari 400/800 In-Store Demonstration Cartridge.

    I'm going to guess and then Brian can correct me when he gets to the board.
    Tengen Tetris Complete, Panzer Dragoon, Snatcher (is that right?).

    I only pay close attention when the game looks fun to me, so I say
    Final Fantasy 1 factory sealed

    probably either super street fighter 2x for matching service or vampire chronicle for matching service.

    or maybe flinstones 2.

    Mine would have to be PC Genjin 3 Taikenhan for the Core Grafx. It was made in very small quantities for Hudson Soft's annual games caravan. Hudson Soft regularly makes special versions and samples for the attending patrons. PC Genjin 3 Taikenhan is a sample of PC Genjin 3 (or Bonk 3). It's very rare, even in Japan. The image shows both PC Genjin 3 Taikenhan and PC Genjin 3. The PC Genjin 3 Taikenhan version is the one on the right.

    It's hard to tell which of my game's rare but I think the award goes to my CIB Tutankham for the Intellivision. Unless you count label variations then I have Wario Land and Red Alarm demo for the VB along with a number of SNES demo label.

    I'm not sure which is the rarest:

    Lord of the Dungeon
    or
    Cosmo Fighter 2 (on cartridge)

    For ColecoVision.

    .

    either Earthbound, Super Punchout Sealed, or Zelda 3 sealed.

    I once thought i found Stadium events for the NES at a thrift store, so i was EXTREMELY happy the ride home, and when i got home, i bolted up to my room to get the Tips and Tricks magazine with the Collectors Closet on Holy Grails, only to find i had purchased Athletic World. Damn.
    Somebody once told me to get a life.

    I told them I sold it for money to buy video games.

    I'm not sure...I don't really have 1 game that stands out. I do have a few rare ones. Like Alien Soldier for the Megadrive or Street fighter 2, phantasy star and virtua fighter for the sms. I have a bunch of rare games for the Saturn too... Of course all complete.

    Either Pinball for Odyssey2 or Power Lords for Colecovision (both from CGE 2000), or my 2600 Galaxian lab loaner.

    Among regular releases, hmm... either Quest for Quintana Roo (by Sunrise) or Tomarc the Barbarian for the 2600. I also have a complete Buster Douglas Boxing for SMS; not sure how that compares.

    Hmm I'm still trying to assess the rarity of PAL format SNES games but excluding Proto and other special cart types, probably complete copies of..

    Whizz (SNES)
    Breath of Fire 2 (SNES)
    The Firemen (SNES)
    Fun 'n' Games (SNES)

    Gurume sentai Barayarou (SFC)

    My rarest would have to be Snatcher for Sega CD

    I'm not sure if I should include my 3 multi carts. 2 for the Famicom and 1 for the NES. The NES one has 1000 games on it. Some of the Hacks are pretty funny.
