    Image is the NTSC version but I own the PAL. This does seem pretty hard to find these days and I'm seeing it going for

    They're not really valuable yet, but I have many relatively rare gba games, like doom, doom 2, duke nukem, wario ware twisted, castlevania double pack, sword of mana, all the final fantasy games and many more.

    I'll never forgive myself for getting rid of my gold Ocarina cartridge. Should have had it framed.

    i had a PAL version of Shenmue 2. My Dad kept his Atari 2600 for years. Too bad all my old console stuff got thrown out.

    SNES games in the original box are always a huge draw for collectors especially the Mario ones.

    Hey, I had KOF 95 on Saturn too (bought it when I was 12 and obsessed with SNK, it's probably still in a carton somewhere), but with a Euro Saturn so had to switch the cartridges constantly at the beginning of the game, right before the first loading screen... a skill in itself (I bought a *** V-Saturn later to remedy to that problem)

    Too bad it wasn't the same RAM cartridge than KOF 96/97, Real Bout Special, Metal Slug, Marvel vs Street Fighter, Street Fighter Zero 3, Waku Waku 7, etc...
    A real mess and at the time you had to get lucky and find them in shops, not internet to do all the work for you.
    But these games were so good, and the 2D capacities of the playstation were shit-tier... so you were a 2D fighting game fan, and couldn't afford a Neo.Geo, that was the only choice.

    (I actually bought Metal Slug first found it by chance in a shop, knowing that I didn't have the right RAM to make it work... and had to wait for the KOF 97 bundle to have the right RAM to play the game ^^')

    Youngsters these days have it so easy.

    This thread made me look up some rare games, and I was surprised by a few:

    Final Fantasy VII Original
    Tactics Ogre
    Persona
    Persona 2
    Xenogears (this appears to have gone down in price a lot)
    Suikoden 2
    Earthbound (no special box or anything)
    Gold Ocarina of Time (apparently, saw this mentioned earlier in the thread, didn't know)
    Dragon Warrior 4 for NES
    Chrono Trigger
    Demon's Crest
    Ogre Battle (SNES)
    EVO for SNES (didn't expect this at all, great game though)
    Warsong (really good game that seemed totally unknown at the time)
    Shining Force 2
    Clayfighter 63 1/3rd (bought this at Blockbuster for something like $2 and apparently it's rare now, pretty bad game actually)
    Ogre Battle 64
    Super Smash Bros.
    Ico (also bought this cheap at a Blockbuster, good game this time)

    I haven't paid attention to any of that in years, I'm sure there are others. Unfortunately, none of these are going to be in sealed, pristine boxes.

    i don't think it's that rare, but i got a copy of Gitaroo Man for PS2 from GameStop for $10 or something a while ago. it's since been reprinted so it's not as rare as it was then, but i think it's still fairly rare.

    great game.
