Default Rarest game you own?

Any rare game guys here? What is the rarest game you own?

I have a 9/10 Sega Saturn Burning Rangers that I bought new at Funco Land.

Off the top of my head, probably FF7 for both pc and psx. I have others from snes and sega (gamegear) era but I dont remember if any are rare and they are buried in boxes in my parents basement.

probably night trap on sega cd before they cut certain parts out of it. the game is pretty awful

i also have an xmen vs. street fighter on saturn with the ram cart.

honestly not sure how rare either of those are but they seem kinda rare when i think about it lol.

i also have an original alleyway on the original gameboy that i found when i moved a few months ago.

Does teen rated Oblivion count? It was only out for a month and a half before ESRB rerated it.

It's a PC game but I have the original boxed Hero's Quest by Sierra before they changed it to Quest for Glory due to the lawsuit.

Not exactly a game but I do have a "super gameboy" adapter for SNES. I don't really see too many of these.

FFVII for PSX & PC, also the strategy guide to complement them even though it is in bad shape.

EDIT:

Also Chrono Trigger strategy guide. Some of them have become pretty collectible.

Dragon Warrior for NES. Not super rare like the next 3, but still one of the best games of all time.

I have the Spyro Collector's Edition myself. Just ran through them recently, and they're in working order. Wish I had the cases though.

Another game I'm not sure is rare would be Digimon World, but I enjoyed it. The one time I did search Google for it, a new copy looked to be about $100.

Anyway, I really want Tales of Destiny 2 (AKA, Tales of Eternia) but that is a game I know is rare. :/

Not particularly rare, but they maintained their value & then some. But I've passed them along by now.

Silent Bomber on PS
Bought for $20. 10 years later, traded it off at a value of $40.

Vampire: The Masqeurade - Bloodlines.
Wasn't expecting to get more than $20 for it. Was going to try & sell it for less than that. But was feeling the vibe not to & leave the price range value open. Got a trade offer for $40 on it.
6mo later it went on sale for $15 on Steam.

3 years ago, I regretted my decision to sell my Gamecube (2 years prior to that) to buy a new video card so I bought a Gamecube on craigslist, black, with 1 controller, and metroid prime, for $30.

To my surprise when I got the game, it was still shrink wrapped. I guess the dude that bought it never cared for the game and never played it. I thought it was odd, so I opened it and played it.

I should have never opened it.

I don't know that they are all that rare, but I still have my original copies of Ultima III, IV and V for the C-64 on 5.25" floppy disk.

Nice, I still have the NES version of Ultima: Exo and Quest (3 & 4 if anyone is unsure). I even have the strategy guide and box for Exodus.
