    Default What Is Your Own Personal Holy Grail?

    Every system has a Holy Grail usually based on rarity. The chapionship carts for Nintendo. The Half Life proto / loaner for the Dreamcast.

    What I would like to know is what is your personal Holy Grail? What game would you like to own that you don't already? It can be based on rarity or just the fact that you really enjoy the game.

    Mine would be Panzer Dragoon Saga for the Saturn. I had parts 1 and 2 a few years back and thought they were great games even though I didn't get to finish them.

    for me it would be nintendo's game and watch tabletop "snoopy's tennis". i have the dk jr, mario's cement and popeye, snoopy would complete the set. alas this game is very rare and very expensive on ebay.

    Lord of the Dungeon for the ColecoVision.

    Arcade Antics- you have a Major Havoc arcade machine? Great! I haven't even seen one since 1987; lucky you!

    No, I don't have one, *snif* but it's the one Holy Grail that I'd LOVE to track down.

    Panzer Dragoon Saga would be mine. I would like to get all the Genesis, 32X, Sega CD, Saturn and Dreamcast games. That one may not be the hardest to find but I think it cost the most.

    an arcade machine. preferably Galaga or Centipede. probably not too difficult to obtain but it's something I'd REALLY like to have.

    I only yesterday heard from an owner of one that he's ready to ebay his (nice and working) dedicated Major Havoc really really soon.... so watch for it. Be prepared to see the price go for over $3000 however.. but where there's a will...

    I'd love to own a japanese Time Gal arcade machine that accepts quarters... The only picture i've ever seen of one is in the Time Gal/Ninja Hayate instruction manual...

    Gyruss arcade machine. Not rare or expensive, but a solid good game. It's just a matter of time.

    My personal holy grail would be to own a number of arcade machines including both Tron games, Space Tactics, Virtua On, and even the monster Sega R-360

    For me it would be to own the swordquest sword which was the ultimate prize in the Swordquest series.
