Marvel Ultimate Alliance Gold Edition...these goes 60 to 110 dollars on ebay and amazon.

Luckily for me, I grabbed it for 15 dollars on Craigslist. Only seen a few copies of MUAGE at gamestop for years now.

I would like to know which isolated villages you guys live in the Lego games are quite common and Tales of Vesperia is everywhere on the internet for sale.

I'm having trouble finding Harry Potter: OOTP anywhere. I love the HP games, so I'm kinda sad about it.

Most of the rare games are going to be on the older systems or as stated JRPG types that pretty much if you don't pre-order your not going to get them. I know that the Sega Saturn Panzer Dragoon games go for a pretty penny on the used market and finding one new is near impossible at the moment. Also finding complete copies of certain games such as the Lunar series on the original PlayStation.... I sure miss when collector's editions just were, and not an upgrade.

The bottom line is that the games that always end up being worth any money in the future, tend to be the ones that did poorly and pretty much no one wanted or bought.

It's just a matter of asking yourself do I want to spend money on a game I'm going to enjoy? Or try to make an investment on a game that may or may not be worth anything in the distant future?

I thought Tales of Vesperia was hard to find. It took a year or two for me to finally find it in a store.

I'm not sure if The Simpsons or The Orange Box are rare, but around the time I bought my copies, there weren't very many that came up in the search. On top of that I could only find them in the $35+ price range(used) if they were complete with original everything.

had both marvel ultimate alliances, had to trade them in when i was too broke to claim my skyrim preorder. not sad to see the first go but the sequel was a good game. got a good price on them cus the guy in the shop said they were rare.
still got my beautiful katamari game, never getting rid of that, think i've seen it only once or twice in shops.
i like dynasty warriors games, but some don't show up too often in shops. place near me has warriors orochi 3 new, yet i still haven't ever seen a copy of warriors orochi 2

The Simpsons held its value really well. Good game too.

I was just about to say that Tales got a reprint, and that is way it is so easy to find now. Luckly I have a fisrt run, but now it is very easy to try and fake a reprint as a first run. Broke my heart honestly when I saw this at first condisdering what I payed for my copy. I remember a lot of people trying to sell the reprints on ebay as if it was still rare, kinda funny really. But in the end I'd rather there be reprints that sell as new and make the developers money rather than people making money off of used and the developers not seeing a damn dime. Scalpers are getting bad and I just can't stand it.

Gamestops won't take any sports games that are 2 years old I think. So the latest you could find right now is NHL 11.

Currently have Bully: SE, NFS: MW, and The Orange Box in my possession. Look like I'll be saving them for a while if they really are that rare.

I wouldn't necessarily call them rare, but they can be more difficult to find.

Mini Ninjas can be a difficult game to find, it is no longer in print, and tends to not be in brick and mortar stores. It can be found online, but even that can be difficult.

Another game that can be hard to find is Chibi Robo for the Gamecube, especially complete and in good condition.

Really? I've seen 09 and 10 games before. Unless those just didn't sell.

I guess that's a better choice of words. Either way, I'm glad I have these in my possession since they seem to be increasing in worth over time relatively quickly.

I couldn't find Borderlands GOTY Edition anywhere. I ended up ordering it off of Amazon after calling about seven or eight different stores.

Oh God, the time spent searching for that game and simultaneous trying to teach myself Japanese to see if I could buy one off a guy from a Japanese forum...

Korean BioShock
Japanese Batman: AA
SW Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition (Pretty limited amount and everything SW is collectible)

Haven't checked amazon or ebay yet as I prefer to buy my games in person, but for the life of me nba jam is very hard to find. The only time I have found it they still wanted full retail 59.99
