What is the one item you could never part with in your retro games collection? Could be anything ...a game, a book, toys.... your most treasured item.

For me its this. I still own the original copy I had as a kid, complete with every sticker.

Well, it was my sealed copy of T&C Surf(My Avatar is the BoxArt for those that don't know) for the NES until i spontaneously ripped it open on a hot summery afternoon. Now that it's no longer sealed, I'm going to have to go with my super duper rare 1990 Super Mario Bros. 3 'SkyLand' McDonalds Happymeal BOX. B-)

I don't realy have a "crown jewel", or anything super rare, but I do have some things I am glad to own. My NES cart of Princess Tomato, my sealed StarTropics, my boxed copy of Shadowgate and my Sega CD. Not selling anything over the years has it's advantages :)

Hmmm.... in terms of games, I'm probably going to say Ikaruga. Even now it's till a pretty rare game to find. For collector's items, I love my gamestop Punch Out shirt that was won in a competition.

I don't really have anything exclusive, but DK Original Edition says "Not Released", so i guess that.

When I lost my GB/GBC/GBA collection this was the only one remaining, which is lucky, because it's also the one that was most valuable to me. Not an especially rare game, but it is a fantastic one.

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

I have the special 25th anniversary edition of the entire Final Fantasy game library, imported from Japan. That's pretty cool.

I have the special edition soundtrack of Final Fantasy XIII. That's awesome.

I've just ordered a bunch of Atelier series character miniatures:

Metroid Prime's the best game I ever played so I guess that. Pretty amusing that the plastic over the front cover is noticeable cut from when I first opened it. Using a knife most likely. I'm sure that was the best idea I ever had.

Not retro but I also have my copy of Fragile Dreams which is just a black box. Not cover, no anything. Just a box.

I dunno about rare, but Banjo Kazooie on my N64 is probably my best "retro" game (Not counting Ps2 if that's considered retro) but in terms of rare, I'd say my copy of Metroid Prime Trilogy is decently rare.

There are no stupid questions, except for the ones that are.
Bergmite, Piloswine and Snover safari.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX. The only GBC game I have that represents that part of my childhood.

I consider it retro now, from what I heard it has been discontinued

anyways, Super Mario World since it's my favorite game of all time, and it's the first revision with the darker background and horizontal logo for the game XD

This is a signature.
I mentioned signatures, which makes this a meta-signature,
A meta-signature mentioning meta-signatures is a meta-meta-signature.
Hence, this signature is infinitely meta. Does Meta-Knight have a self-awareness of his own name?
