The game thats personally worth the most to me would be Operation Wolf on the Spectrum, 1st game I ever bought with my pocket money from WHSmiths years and years ago, still works to this day too!
Well jealous - Radiant Silvergun!

Not sure to be honest.
I guess either Yoshi's Island for the Snes (which cost me 50p brand new) or Majora's Mask.

Both mint.

No idea, haven't bought anything in ages so haven't a clue what current prices are like. Border Down used to fetch decent prices, but its possible some of my other stuff is worth more. Mostly I'm a bargain gamer, so unless I've got lucky I doubt I've anything exceeding £100.

Don't ask mayhem how much he paid for that Ultima then......... :wink:

As for me, i've had loads pass through my hands, but nowadays, i dunno really. I suppose QWAK (GBA) boxed, would cost a few quid if it ever turned up on ebay. Hard to put a value on it until one does. Its certainly the rarest one i own, anyway.

Probably SD Gundam Dimension War on Virtual Boy, not really a great game for the money it goes for nowadays.

Money-wise, probably my copy of NES Zelda, boxed with all instructions and maps. I also have a boxed Illusion of Time on the SNES. Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Baten Kaitos, Pikmin 2 and Twilight Princess on GC all command decent prices. And on Wii I have Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn and a sealed Metroid Prime Trilogy. I also have all three Operation Rainfall titles which I suspect will go for decent money in future.

Emotional value? Either SMB on NES or my big box Monkey Island 2 for Amiga.
