    Wing Commander Armada, why is it so rare? Hell if I know, but every time I tried to find it I had 0 luck, then me pappy tried and found a copy, thus completeing my Wing Commander collection.

    Game's fricken awsome, turned based space strategy and then units start fighting each other you get into the cockpit and duke it out to see who wins the fight.

    Let's seeeeeeeeee.....

    going based only on low production runs rather than "assumed rarity because it's popular" which gets games like chrono trigger labeled rare?

    Megaman IV and V for Gameboy
    Metal Gear Solid for GBC (I have a hard time convincing some people that this even exists)
    Wild Arms Alter Code: F for PS2

    I'm not sure if any of these are 'rare' but I Final Fantasy 1, Dragon Warrior 1 and Zelda 1 all for the NES with their boxes and manuals in great shape.

    I also have Big Nose the Caveman which is rare with awesomeness because it's gold and has a switch in the back of the cartridge.

    Not rare, per se, but I have a mint, shrinkwrapped copy of sonic 2. Um Parasite EVE, which is kinda pricey, Mutant League Hockey...bunch of boxed NES games...none too rare, but all pretty expensive to buy. The rarest item in my gaming collection is my Nintendo Color TV Game Block Kusure(1979, boxed with instructions). Also, I have a Coleco Telstar Ranger, which I'd assume is pretty rare, and predates the nintendo console by 2 years.
