Whats the rarest game in YOUR retro collection...

Recommended Posts

Great new site Reg. :)So, who`s got the rarest game in their current Retro collection?...not me! :(

But I will kick things off with "Panzer Dragoon Saga" (PAL) for the Sega Saturn (obviously) near mint condition.

I love this game. It was by far the Saturns best game IMO. Grounbreaking in its day. i remember getting the 1st disk of 4, free with a saturn magazine, when the game was 1st released in the UK. It blew me away, and i went out and bought the full game.  At the time, i had no idea that its was going to become a rare classic, as i had assumed that there was hundreds of thousand of copies sold (only a few thousand were actually sold in the uk and europe) and i thought it would never hold its value....so as i was working at Cash Converters at the time, no prizes for guessing what happend to it..Yep, i sold it. i sold it for a lowly price of £15, and £90 for the Saturn console....what a dickhead!

So 3 or 4 years later, i decided that i wanted to play it again, so off i went in search of a saturn and another copy of "Panzer Dragoon Saga" i was in for a more expensive time than i had first expected.. the console was no problem...£25 from a car boot sale...the game? £150!!!! Fook me! when the game arrived in near as mint as you could get, i decided that i would not use the discs, through fear of scuffing them...ive never even opened the manual, as i didnt want it to be "used" so i wrapped the game in newspaper, and it has sat in a drawer till this day (except the the pic above that i have just taken)...unused, un touched (discs and manual) hell, i wont even open the case more than an inch!! The PAL version of the game, sells for around £250 to £450 on EBAY nowdays, so it was a good investment...though i dont think ill ever sell it TBH.

the only time i actualy got to replay the game again (and many, many times since) was when the Saturn was eventualy emulated on PC. not quite the same, but it will do...

So, Its over to you.... whats the rarest game YOU own...

:)

I can't remember what they are - but I have about 5 of the same game UK PAL versions of something on the Neo-Geo pocket in the loft.

I once saw them in an Electronics Boutique for £1.99 and as the Neo-Geo pocket flopped - figured I'll take those - you never know.

Last time I checked I saw one sell of £60 but I be damned if I can remember what game it was.

The rarest game I own is a pal version of Mario Superstar Baseball for the GameCube. I think it's selling for about £80 now on Amazon.

I've got some old ZX81 games somewhere, I think 3D Monster Maze is amongst them.

Also I swear I bought Great Giana Sisters, from a market stall back in the day, so might have that amongst some old tapes.

Giana Sisters will be worth a small fortune.  Pretty sure they’ve gone for over a grand on eBay.  The game was withdrawn from stores shortly after release, so is pretty rare.

3D Moster Maze was s brilliant ZX81 game.

PS Would love to see a pic of it if you have it.

I remember getting about £75 for my Ultimate Boxset on eBay.
