Not rare at all (available online boxed for under £30) but my Megadrive Arcade Power Stick is my prize possesion. Got it Christmas 1992 from my folks when I got a Megadrive. And sitting in my room playing Streets Of Rage with the joystick was one of those "wow" moments!

I havent gotten anything thats majorly rare. I'd probably say lagoon on the SNES and swordquest: earthworld on the Atari 2600 are the items I'm most proud to own.

Probably Phantasy Star for the Master System, but i'm not much of a collector. The less physical games i have, the better. I like my house tidy.

I have stumbled across stuff I haven't realised was rare - e.g. PAL Raiden III for PS2 which I picked up for next to nothing in my Local Forbidden Planet when they still did games.

DC and PS2 copies of Rez and Space Channel 5.

Nothing Earth-shatteringly rare though.

Think some of my boxed PAL N64 games are pretty desirable too - Worms Armageddon, Mystical Ninja 2 - stuff like that - but again - I just gathered this stuff up back in the day.
