So I'm hitting that point in my game collecting where I'm trying to decide if I should keep the Greatest Hits version of something along with the original. I don't feel so bad keeping just the original of a PSOne or PS2 game over the Greatest Hits version, but with older games it's trickier.
I have a couple of different versions of "Space Invaders" on Atari 2600 because one is a text front label and the other two are picture labels--but even these have differences as one is a red end label and the other a blue end label. Last night I came across a "Million Seller" version of "F-Zero" on SNES. This one has a slightly different label with a smaller picture, the ESRB rating, and even the text on the end label is smaller. It also has the recessed front of the cart compared to my original version. I'll try to attach a photo showing the differences.
So here's the conundrum--if I elect not to keep the GH versions of games, what about this? Stuff like this is more of a variation than just a stripe on the spine/front/disc--it's an alternate cart altogether.
