I always have these types of questions and I havent seen a thread, so I decided to make one.

I am wondering about is The Guy Game on XBOX. My EB has about 3 sealed ones (not guts) and I've heard that this game is rare, but I've also heard that its not.

I am also wondering about Irritating Stick on PSX, a mom and pop store by me also has like 4 sealed copies of it for 5 bucks each.

Thanks!

I believe the guy game is rare because one of the girls in it is actually underage, making it child pornography. It should have been pulled from shelves, but I could be wrong but that's what I've heard.

I found a PS2 copy at Blockbuster for $5, picked it up and sold it on Amazon for $30.

$20 used for the PS2 version. The Xbox version is no longer listed, not even when you search backordered items. I'm surprised this is in their system at all. It even says there are PS2 copies in my area.

If yours has Xbox guy games sealed, lemme know how much they are. I've been looking for a copy to add to my collection of "Games that should not be."

edit - just read he said xbox, how much are they there?

If the OP can get his Gamestop to part with em cheap I'm still interested. TBH if any of the employees don't care, its probably out of the system so he could get away with it somewhat.

Just because it isn't on the website doesn't mean it's 'not in the system'.

Anyway, best I can recall, it was around $17.99 the last time I saw one used at a GS, so I'd imagine it's still hanging around that range. Though, if they're sealed and considered 'new', they may be more.

It's fairly rare, as it was just limited to pre-orders. Tt doesn't hold much value though. I have it and enjoy it.

Rez, no, not really. My GC has had 3 or 4 used copies for many, many months. A sealed one could pull some cash, but otherwise, nah.

That's what happened, from what I remember hearing about this game. I own it myself(one of the only games I have left for the XBox)and I find it hilarious that a game like that was released.

But what happened with the girl was that she 1) used a fake ID to get into the bar where she also 2) signed a waiver form allowing the use of ANY video with her in it on the game.

Of course, who really should get in trouble for this? If you ask me, the game company should've SUED HER for falsely representing herself, instead of the other way around, since she was the one there illegally in the bar.

She and her family sued over the footage and that's why this game is so controversial in some peoples opinions. Even funnier was that some sites reported that her parents even paid for breast implants for her, so how wacked is that family to begin with?

ive seen 2 copies of the guy game on ps2 locally at a blockbuster for 15 a piece that i almost bit on because i thought they were rare.
oh and also


how about secret of evermore, illusion of gaia, megaman x, and tales of the abyss?

I'd say no to all of them. The SNES games fetch between 4-7 dollars, and abyss is in the 40's currently.

Last time I remember seeing the guy game new at gamestop, it was $35 or so new.

Shenmue LE is obscure. Not rare, but not common. Worth around $30 or so.

With the exception of Secret of Evermore ($15), the rest of the SNES games go for about $7 each...Tales of the Abyss is a weird one; its price has fluctuated like crazy. It was as high as $50 used to a low of $30 new; it seems like its stabilizing out to about $30-40ish used now.

theres always digital press. they keep a running database of rarity and approximite prices for older games. based off there advanced guide that I have :

secret of evermore - $12 , Rarity 2 (common)
megaman X - $8 , Rarity 1 (common)
illusion of gaia - $12 , Rarity 1 (common)

If anyone else has any game rarity requests for anything Pre-PS2 generation , ask me and I'll check it in my guide.

I don't like digital press because they put a lot of emphasis on "test, one ofs, and non official" games as the "rarest".... it doesn't lend much to "quality vs rarity"..

like for me.. I can't find Earthbound on the SNES.. i can find pretty much any other game worth playing on it but that one..

heres a question.. since the xbox 360 has now been out a few years, are there any "rare" games for it?.. i only ask because I was just curious and I hadn't heard about too many "hard to find" games for it.

Is the guy game harder to get on any platform because MVC2 is much harder on ps2 than it is xbox.

The only "rare" games so far on the 360 are Transformers Cybertron edition and the T for Teen Collector's Edition of Oblivion.

Even then, neither is valuable, just somewhat rare.
