I'd have a hard time believing Zero Mission to be rare.
I think the Japanese versions of the Metroid GBA games maybe, but not the English versions. :P (supposedly Fusion only sold about 180k in Japan, but over a million in NA)
(I know the JP version of Fusion has an ending photo viewer, as well as an unlockable Hard mode as well and probably a couple other ending images to unlock.
However, I don't think the JP version of Zero Mission has any content differences that would make it interesting to import fans (even the unlockable Metroid is still the NES version rather than the FDS version).

And I ended up paying a fortune for Lunar anyways. Ah well, at least I grabbed Gunbird 2 along with it for just $25. :)

I payed just under a 100$ (no shipping or handling fees) to buy a used Metroid Prime Trilogy Collectors Edition in very nice condition (the case is perfect, but there is a fold on the instruction booklet and also a smudge on the art-book, although neither faults are noticeable). On the internet, I've seen the disc alone go for almost the same price, so was this a good deal? I don't know much about video game collecting, I was just wondering if I got a bargain.

And I ended up paying even more for Lunar 2. Twice.

Wow $27,000? :o

As for rare games, I do have a copy of Pokemon Green, although I'm not sure that it's particularly rare. :(

@Captain_Balko: As for the Metroid Prime Trilogy, that game has a huge variance in price. I say $100 for a used complete copy is pretty good. I think that is close to about average at the moment. That reminds me, one of these days I am going to have to try out my copy on the Wii U.

Man speaking of Metroid Prime Trilogy, what's up with the huge prices on a lot of out of print games for Gamecube and Wii? Guess there's a lesson to be learned here and I'll have to get the good stuff for the Wii U as it is coming out. Nintendo will always be popular with collectors I suppose.

Where's the KABOOM?! There was supposed to be an earth-shattering KABOOM! sigh delays...delays...

I have known that for maybe a couple years, but only because someone on another forum once asked for a label scan or something saying the game was rare.
I'm surprised that the NES version is pretty cheap considering that was a late era game (probably as late as Wayne's World).
Then again maybe R&S popularity dropped between 1993 (NES) and 1995 (SNES).

I did pick up Fire Dogs around then because I knew that was a rental-only game so I picked it up impulse buy for like $20 (cart only), even though it's hard to say if people even wanted to pay that.
Though I think so far the only rental-exclusive game people really care about is Final Fight Guy.

I still have Arc Rise Fantasia for the Wii and that is worth $100 used nowadays which is crazy, but then again I also own a nearly mint copy of Suikuden 2 for the PS1 which is impossible to find for under $200 in the current market. :o

Arc Rise Fantasia is like 25-30 dollars used...new it is like $100.

I want to get Umihara Kawase Jun for the DS but it is like $65 used and that is without the case. With the case and manual it's like $100 :(
