Do you have a jar of my toenail clippings? Not many people do. It’s a rare good, but scarcity is a silly reason to own anything. It is fixed in our minds that if something is a little bit, we want it more. We know this as “fear of missing out,” and it’s one of the most annoying combinations of greed.
The video game collection is a harmless embodiment of that. As far as I know, no wars have been fought over a copy of snap on the Sega CD. However, it is still somewhat annoying. I collect toys because they are a tangible representation of a game. I like to play them. Don’t give me a factory sealed game, because I’ll open it. I don’t want to look lightly at anyone else’s reasons as to why they collect games, but I can’t help but find it absurd that some questionable titles hold such a high value on the basis of rarity. Like I said earlier, rarity is the pox on humanity’s ass, and here’s a closer look at some of the festering boils.
Family Fun Stadium events (1987, NES)
Family fun playground events Really roasts my goat. It is considered one of the “holy grail” of the NES library. Bandai was the original creator of the Power Pad, and they’re all set to release the NES version alongside Family fun playground events When Nintendo stepped in to re-brand and distribute it instead. All copies stadium events that made it to the shelves.
There are a few things I hate about this. First, Nintendo re-released the game as the most popular game World class track meet, and the two games are identical apart from the title screen. Secondly, the number of cartridges in the wild depends entirely on speculation. Some say only a few made it to consumers, but the NES minimum to run a game is 10,000. Former Nintendo spokesperson Howard Phillips doesn’t think they’re likely destroyed, so they could still be out there. Personally, I wouldn’t drop $20,000 on a different title screen in the first place. But the only way it could be worse is if someone discovers a long-forgotten slip of cartridges that crashes the price.
Barbie Groom and Glam Pups (2013, 3DS)
Dogs are so adorable, make no mistake. I’d rather give them hold and cohesion than shine them. I also have nothing against Barbie. It doesn’t come with a proton pack or transform into anything, but I think some kids have more imagination. However, I can’t understand why I would want to spend over $2,000 on something like this. $2,000 can get you an adorable dog, but you can also get their endless affection and gratitude for a lot cheaper if you adopt.
the reason Barbie: Puppy Groom and Glam Puppies So expensive that the only NTSC version of it was released in limited locations in an obscure country called Canada. I guess if you really need to complete your 3DS collection you don’t have a choice, but if you’d rather just play the game, get the Wii or DS versions for under $10.
Action 52 (1991, NES)
I’m almost embarrassed to say I own a copy of Action 52 on the NES, but at around $300, they’re the lowest-priced items on this list. inspired by pirate cartridges, Action 52 A sound idea on paper. 52 games, all on one cartridge, for the low (?) entry fee of $200. But while pirate cartridges (usually) only consist of a bunch of games that have already been released, all 52 games on that cartridge are brand new. Unfortunately, the three (or maybe four) undergraduates recruited to develop the games were given three months to complete all 52 games.
The result is a collection of games that are unpassable at its best and unplayable at its worst. There is nothing worth playing in too much. It’s priced up because there aren’t a lot of games in circulation, and it has a reputation as one of the worst games ever made. You don’t have to play it yourself; I can confirm that it is not good.
Ellie’s Ladder (1982, Atari 2600)
Sometimes considered the rarest educational game in existence, Eli’s ladder Known for its rarity. Now, I wouldn’t begrudge anyone for wanting to learn math on their Atari 2600. Video games are a great way to trick kids into learning something boring. But, Eli’s ladder A very basic example of this, and since there were very few dealers, the last time one was sold on eBay it sold for $5,000. If someone offered me $5,000, I promise I would learn arithmetic hard without having an Atari 2600.
Waterworld (1995, Virtual Boy)
Here’s another game I already own, but that’s only because it wasn’t very expensive at the time, and I needed it to complete my collection of Virtual North American Boy games. water world Taken from the 1995 movie After the End of the World. While there have been other games based on the movie, water world On the Virtual Boy it’s its own special thing, and it’s not much. A lot of Virtual Boy games had the problem that they felt more like tech demos or old arcade games rather than full experiences. water world Like this. You sail and blow up other boats and save people. It takes about a minute to see everything water world You must introduce it, and then repeat it but with more force.
Bronkie the Bronchiasaurus (1994, SNES)
I almost didn’t include it Bronkie the Bronchiasaurus because I Of course want to play it. However, I intentionally play bad games, so I’m a very bad barometer. Bronkie the Bronchiasaurus It is an edutainment side controller from Raya Systems, which we also brought Captain Novolin, Rex Ronan: Experimental Surgeon, And the Bucky and Marlon. It’s about the titular Brontosaurus who has to deal with and manage his asthma. While I’m a person broken enough to find that to be a bewildering premise, I’m not sure I’d be willing to spend upwards of $300 to see if it lives up to its ambitions.
The King James Bible (1994, Game Boy)
I am not trying to say that the King James Bible is not worth reading. I’m sure it’s… classy. However, the Game Boy sounds like the worst e-reader imaginable. The system is known for its impressive game library and 8-second battery life. He is not known for having a great screen. Really, its screen could be better described as “visible”, at least when there is enough light but not too much Light. The idea of reading an entire book there, let alone the Bible, seems like a very depressing way to spend a road trip. There are two games, and a word search in case you’re curious as to how many times the word “rooster” appears in the Bible.
Actually, this is something I’m curious about. According to my research, it’s between 7 and 13 times. King James Bible He says nothing, so what’s the point?
Neurodancer (1994, 3DO)
I know I said these are games you don’t want to play, but I can imagine the reasons why you would want to play old porn games. Not that they are worthwhile additions to the sin bin. It’s easier than ever to savor every flavor of pornography possible while you’re on the bus or at your child’s piano recital, and adding a game to it is just a needless hurdle that gets in the way of your nipples. No, I will play porn games Because They are so bad they are kitsch.
FMV porn games are in their own category of bad, and Neural For 3DO Interactive Multiplayer is the perfect example of a title holding back its own concept. It’s not so simple that my extensive research didn’t reveal actual boobs inside, but a high percentage of it are videos of people posing for cameras, fooling the future of cyberpunk as if it was something from outside. Robocop. It doesn’t do me much good in terms of excitement, but even worse are the mazes you have to go through to get credits that you use to make women take their clothes off. Listen, I don’t know how much you know about seduction, but labyrinths are a pretty unconventional method.
Try match 3 instead.
