    I was looking at my games collection and saw a few rare items like the Japanese Elektroplankton Special Edition I found on ebay and a few boxed SNES games (mainly F-Zero and Donkey Kong Country 2) any of you guys own anything worth some money?

    I am sure if I scouted through my cupboard of wonder (and its cousins the boxes of wonder) I would probably have a handful of things from the C64 upwards that taken together would get something for them. I do also own a copy of Minna no Soft tetris for the GBA which was not cheap.
    I have precious little time for game collectors though* and err *points to general site policy* - it is not like I can not emulate anything I am suddenly overcome with a desire to play and I have never bought into the "prefer it on real hardware" mindset (any number of USB adapters to allow for good controllers and nice filters, ROM hacks and other bonuses afforded by emulation..... why would I go back to the hardware).

    *I occasionally click around on online tat merchants and the prices some things are suggested as do amuse me.

    I have a huge collection of PSX/PS2/PS3 games (Mint, CIB) and quite a big collection of Nintendo console games (NES, GC, N64, etc). Don't know if they're actually worth anything, but if it's been possible to rip the game and play it via HDD, I've done just that (PS2 with 500 GB HDD, Wii with 500 GB HDD, PSP Go with 32 GB Flash, etc). It's not that I couldn't play the originals, but that I need the space for games I can't play via USB/HDD loaders (= PS3 games since the console is on OFW). I do have adapter cables via USB and 2 of each controller for pretty much all Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony consoles so emulation isn't really a big problem for the authentic feel. I would need a better computer for better emu compatibility, but Dolphin among others does work pretty well with HD graphics and the likes on my MBP.

    (Once I graduate in a few years from Uni and get some money (full time vs trainee as part time is a huge difference over here), I'll be buying a computer for mostly gaming and emulation.)

    Most of my games are rare in France as they are import only. 90's were not a very good time for game localization in Europe!

    Game and Watch: Boxing (1984; still working)
    SNES: Final Fantasy 6, Chrono trigger, Secret of Mana, Seiken densetsu 3, Tengai Makyou Zero. (I wish I had Super Metroid, maybe I'll find one someday)
    PSX: Original (as in first release, not gold/cheaper re-edit) : Final Fantasy Tactics, Xenogears, SaGa Frontier, Chrono Cross, Brave Fencer Musashi Den

    I don't know if my other games are rare nor expansive, they are just imported games from japan so they are more rare than games sold in my country, like Marl's Kingdom 1 and 2, Front Mission 2, 3, and Alternative.
    I also have imports on PS2.

    How do you check if it's rare? ebay prices?

    Yeah, that the general consensus, but the prices shoot up in the last few minutes. I personally use the 'watch this item' feature and see what the item goes for before listing the same item

    I HAD a complete boxed copy of Earthbound that I sold on eBay about 4 months ago for $450... that was my rarest. The next rarest that I have is probably a complete Conker's Bad Fur Day.

    The ones I can think of are the Zelda collector's disc, an apparently somewhat unusual version of Demon Attack for the Atari 2600 (white label and a flat top), and a rare copy of Ninja Remix for the C64. I probably have some others as well, but I can't remember them.

    no point in me listing games that are limited/special/collectors editions because most likely there is over 1 mil other people that have also (well maybe not as much but you get the point, they were not that limited or rare)

    I do have a few odder items that had a limited run and were promo items

    the zelda vhs preview was a promo item from toys r us that they sent in the mail (not sure why I got it as I didnt own a n64 any wasnt in any toys r us club or list)

    and the rdr john hillcoat dvd movie was a very limited run in an rdr amazon bundle, even in used condition I can probably get over a $100 for it

    the rouge galaxy flag and demo disc was sent to "some" psu members (most of them anyway, I remember alot of people complaining they didnt get it)

    there is also another rare item, a god of war chains of olympus demo pack, included a umd demo disc and a special omega logo psp charm promo item, you can see it here, I cant seem to find mine right now http://shinigamer.wordpress.com/2007/11/08/god-of-war-chains-of-olympus-demo/
