Games that you wish you hadn't sold?

Post by nesmaster » Wed Dec 17, 2008 4:19 am

Earthbound. Someone bought it for me a few years ago and it was boxed and complete. I sold it for some dumb reason.

Conkers Bad Fur Day.
I got this game when it first came out and i really wish i hadn't sold it. It goes for about 50-60 quid on ebay now :cry:

Keio Flying Squad 2 (Saturn) - Great game but I sold it when I got rid of my UK Saturn (in favour for a Japanese one). I really wish I kept that game.

Also various Neo Geo MVS games, a complete Rage of the Dragons kit, Matrimelee, Last Blade 2 and Real Bout 2.

Home Alone on the Megadrive, because in the back of the book i'd written all the different combinations of the collectables which took me ages.

I sold my Master System and about 17 games to help fund the purchase of the newly released SNES, I've recreated my collection but it'll never be quite the same :(

I know! Which is why I am gutted for selling it in the first place!

Although probably very easy to pick up again, I've always regretted selling the original Crash Bandicoot on the PS1.

I've never really sold many games unless they were absolutely rubbish, but I think when I was in school I was strapped for cash and needed to raise some funds for the latest Final Fantasy game! That's why Crash had to go. I'll get it back one day!

EDIT: Oh, something I really do regret doing is chucking away the boxes for the original Link's Awakening, Donkey Kong Land (yellow cart Gameboy version) and the big box version of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. Bleh :(

I once traded about 15 Complete Master System games for 4 complete Atari Lynx games at Cannings in Leigh, I still have not forgiven them for totally ripping off an inocent little kid who didnt realise the worth. :cry:

My ZX Spectrum's 250 games collection to finance an Amiga. There were some classics in there and still in their original full price boxes. Notably Sabrewulf, Knightlore, Fairlight, Starglider, Chasehq, Turbo Espirit, Untouchables etc. :(

Now I tend to keep all my games!

You'll be lucky to ever get a complete edition of that back. Was it any fun to play in the first place though?

For my own part, I gave both Questprobe adventure games for the C16 to a charity shop during the 90s. Virtually impossible to find them complete now. :cry:
