My rarest game is Bucky O Hare for the nes. I was shocked to see the prices it was going for. What are yours?

I would probably say Suikoden II (Complete) with the Strategy guide.

I had a complete copy of lords of thunder for the Sega CD, but I sold it about a month ago.

Maybe E.V.O for the SNES? Or the Ni No Kuni CE?

I don't have anything ultra rare, but probably Skies of Arcadia Legends on GC, or maybe Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis on PS2.

 

Also not super rare but I've only seen a handful I have the PS2 Slim in Ceramic White with the Matching Controller.

Suikoden 2? Misadventures of Tron Bonne? Panzer Dragoon Saga? Giga Wing 2? Crusader of Centy? Musha? Snatcher? Vasteel? Lords of Thunder TG16? Shooting Gallery for the Odyssey? Probably one of those I would guess.

Currently it's Panzer Dragoon Saga, but I've previously owned a Star Fox Super Weekend cartridge. I also came *this* close to owning an Xbox 360 test kit with 6 Days in Fallujah on it, still kind of miffed about missing out on that (was $70 at Atomic Games when they were closing their doors - a friend bought it, and returned it  :wall: ).

Mine would have to be a complete Bubble Bobble Part 2 for the NES.

Not a game but part of rare, not sold in store collector's edition -> Uncharted 2's Dagger statue (from fortune hunter edition). Only 200 made.

 

Found it at Goodwill for $7.99 2 years ago. A CAGer offered to buy it for $500 which I gladly turned down his/her offer.

I've got a few decently hard to find games

 

For the Genesis I have M.U.S.H.A and Crusader of Centy both which fetch $150+ cart only.

 

I've got Robo Aleste, Lords of Thunder and Popful Mail for the Sega CD

 

I've got Megaman X2 for the SNES as well as Conker's Bad Fur Day for the N64.

I guess my rarest game is Ni No Kuni Wizard Edition. Picked it up sealed off CL. I won't ever be opening that guy. But I feel biased because I love that game.

Awesome. Used to have that. Had to get rid of it, SMB 3 and my NES due to epilepsy. It's all good now, haven't had any seizures in years.

Dark Cloud

Dark Cloud 2

 

Not sure how rare these games are, but they're worth every cent to me.

Rarest, as in least produced, would probably be the Ni No Kuni Wizard Edition or a complete copy of Shantae. 

 

In terms of most valuable, I've got quite a few rare/valuable games in the $100-200 range, but the most valuable would be a sealed Last of Us Post-Pandemic Edition... for some reason, these are hitting anywhere from $800-1000 on eBay. They were only like $300-400 a few months ago. I never expected anything I own to be worth that much but I guess LoU is just that popular. I also bought an extra one just in case the first was damaged... I ended up keeping both and opened one to play. Glad I ended up with two of these.  :-P

That is an amazing find. If I remember correctly, there were only 1000 or 2000 copies of the Fortune Hunter Editions made and most were given to the media/press and a few were given out in contests. I'm amazed there was someone dumb enough to just donate theirs. 

 

Out of curiosity, are you keeping that price tag on there on purchase? Normally, I'm not a fan but that's such a great story that I would do the same if it was me.:D

Lol, me too but I still kept on trucking through the epilepsy. Isn't it "game" not "games"? Is Rule of Rose rare or is it just expensive?

I've been looking for Magic Knight Rayearth and Megaman legends 2 for decent prices for years.

Forgot that I have this:

I won it at the Gears 2 gold party. It's the only chromed COG produced, the rest of the ones from this promotion are a dull metal. Even then only around 50 were produced.

Yeah the GW's price sticker is still on it. My lame as friends still don't think I got it for $8 so every time they come watch football on Sunday, it's (I have it display on a top shelf above the TV) right there on their FACE.

 

I'm 100% sure this person donated the complete set of fortune hunter edition to GW. Because the next day, a new seller (zero feedback) on eBay from my county listed his hunter edition (missing the dagger) for $1000 BIN. I sent him or her a message to buy it for $400 cash but was rejected.

Like a few others here, the rarest (or at least most valuable) game in my "archives" seems to be the Ni no Kuni Wizard's Edition. It's a truly excellent CE for a good game, although it's a shame what happened with the fucked-up preorders.

That's a boring answer though so I will say out of my retro collection it's probably The House of the Dead (Saturn, CIB) or Harvest Moon (SNES, cart only). Both of which I paid practically nothing for. :-P

Rarest consoles are probably my Virtual Boy, NES Top Loader, and Atomic Blue N64.

I keep forgetting that the toploader is a bit on the rare side. I love mine just wish the video output wasn't crap.
