    I own some Working Designs (PSX) games:
    Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete
    Lunar: Eternal Blue Complete
    Arc the Lad Collection

    I don't think any of them are that rare.

    Hexyz Force (PSP) - I sold this one. Was surprised to learn that it's rare. Bought for $20, sold for $120 five years later. Insane, right?

    All I have is mostly uncommon games. Things like chrono trigger and final fantasy VI for super nintendo, VII for playstation, games I still play basically. I do have "wand of gamelon" for the Cd-i.

    I'm a filthy casual collector.

    I own Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete with all the pieces and mint discs, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time gold edition complete in the box with manual, Zelda GC collection, 999 for the DS, and Rule of Rose. Just to name some that are rather hard to find.

    I picked up Pikmin 2 for the Gamecube at Gamestop one time for like $15. :lol:

    This was before it came out on the Wii so it was worth a decent amount.

    Yeah, similar situation with me where I picked up Metroid Prime 2: Echoes [GCN] for $15 at EB Games (Canadian version of GameStop). Again, before the Prime Trilogy was released.

    I have Tengen Tetris for the NES, Zelda Collector's Edition for the Gamecube, and that's it I guess, unless you count Cubic Ninja. :P

    I have a few obscure PAL SNES RPG's I'm sitting on for the time being. They'll need a good ol fashion 90's kid magic touch (blow the dust out) but in good working order, nonetheless.

    Cubic Ninja is not rare it is just overpriced due to resellers and is a completely boring thing to post here.

    I have a few games that I guess would be considered rare. PS2 I have shadow of the colossus, Ico, God hand, monster hunter and a few others. For xbox I have a boxed copy of steel battalion with its huge mech controller. For the Wii I have two copies of xenoblade chronicles collectors edition with the red pad included. For the Wii U I have two copies of Bayonetta 2 first print edition. Probably one of the rarest games I have is a copy of Resident evil 2 for the tiger game.com handheld which is still in the plastic blister packaging. And one of the newer rare games I have is a sealed physical copy of Retro City Rampage for the PS Vita, only 3000 copies were ever produced.

    I probably have tons of other rare shit I have forgotten about in the piles and piles of games I own as well.

    I have a couple great condition PSX games but i dunno how "rare" they are. FF7 non-greatest hits, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Digimon World.

    Plus, while they're not games they are cool for me to see every once in a while. I have a collection of all the Tips & Tricks magazines from 97-99 and they are almost all in great condition still. The only one that isn't is my April '99 issue because I wanted one always out and it was the worst condition one so i never put it away. It helped me beat Silent Hill when I was young!
