    I was at one point aiming to collect every game released on the Sega Master System... It's close to ten years since I added to that collection, but with a hundred games I have a few of the titles considered somewhat rare. Golden Axe Warrior and Sonic Spinball seems to be some of the more collectable games I have and it's between 75-130 dollars from the pages I quickly glanced at.

    I'm surprised that no site I visited had Great Soccer (card-version) listed as rare or valuable... that was always my understanding and what I thought was the rarest game I owned.

    I think the only game I really would like to own that is rare is The Great Giana Sisters (C64/Amiga), but I don't look for it or plan to buy it or anything.

    Well, it depends. If you only count retail games, I really don't know - I've got Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector's Edition for the Wii, a PAL version of Persona 4 for the PS2 (unlike the NTSC version, it contained an extra CD with the game's OST) and an imported JAP Pokémon Platinum DS game (not rare, but I got it as a gift back at launch from a family member who lived - and still lives - in japan).

    If betas count too, then my rarest pieces are definitely some PS2 Online Beta trial discs that I got a while back on the cheap, with the most valuable ones being Killzone, Jak X, Monster Hunter and Metal Gear Solid Subistence.

    Finally, this really shouldn't count for obivous reasons but a few years back I've helped a friend of mine to code a small indie game that got released around a year ago, Bounty Runner. Honestly, even if I did help, I didn't have that big of a role in the game's development and the game isn't well known or anything, but I kept a lot of backups and stuff both for nostalgia value and because I've always loved to see unused stuff in videogames and mess around with betas, so I've got around 40 prototypes of that game and a few other stuff such as tech demos and various test builds: some of them were shown publicly at conventions (NärCon), other were released with minor differences online, but none of them have ever been officially released as-is. I can't release them to the public but maybe one day I'll be able to make a video showing those early builds.

    Well yeah, I don't own very many rare games so I figured I would post the one that would probably sell for the most. Which would easily be

    Does it look any different from a regular DKC cart? If so I would love to see pics.

    I have all of the Japanese Gameboy Pokemon games. Don't know if that's worth much.

    Well, it sold roughly 1/4 of the switch's copies. In my country, I saw only the initial release and rarely any copy on local ebay

    Worst seller? Face Training, you know, that DSi exclusive one (I actually played it for over 15 days)

    Highest irrationally valued and hard to find in stores? Pokemon Soulsilver with the Pokewalker - actually, I thought I had lost it 2013 through 2016, found it by complete chance under a heap of foreign coins

    Not rare here but it is for less lucky countries? Xenoblade Wii (and for a different reason, the N3DS version)

    Just weird? Australian version of Animal Crossing PG, which doesn't have e-reader support since it's obviously the European one, but claims to have it on the box

    Actually probs Battleship game from 3DS
    I doubt it's rare at all, but it's the rarest of my collection (as in less sales and less people knowing about the game itself).

    Even my dad has a better collection than mine. He has some few games from the Odyssey console.
