    Default The word "rare" has officially lost its meaning.

    From a Sega Genesis lot:

    "EA Sports Titles (Rare, Extremely Valuable)

    John Madden Football
    Madden 1992
    Madden 1993
    Madden 1994
    Madden 1995
    Madden 1996 No manual just insert
    Madden 1998 No manual just insert

    * All Madden Games come with manuals, playbooks, rosters, and all other paper work unless stated above. This Madden collection is PRICELESS!"

    I think he meant "rare" in the context of "it would be a rare for someone to believe that these games are something other than common"
    Opinions expressed not necessarily those of the author, especially if bone-headed.

    Another question came to mind: What kind of nut loses the manual and case, but keeps the INSERT?

    This whole thing isn't new. People have always abused the "rare" term. Just as an experiment, right now I'm going to the video game section of Ebay and typing in the word "rare"...and got over 7,000 results. Wow, that's a lot of rare games out there...and look at a couple of othe rare games on page one of my search...Super Mario 3 for NES! (Wasn't that one of the biggest sellers ever?)...also Super Punch-Out (SNES). Wow, maybe I can make a fortune with all the rare games I own?

    Maybe if he had the playstation version of Madden 96 it would be rare.
