I'm looking some rare games.
« on: September 06, 2007, 03:03:50 pm »
I hunt rare good games but its near impossible to find them...

Okay the topics not quite clear I'm going to name some rare games I'm looking for and i would like it if anybody spots an online store that sell them heap to let me know. I say cheap because I'm not paying 150$ for a game that diden't cost 40 when it came out. I also know i can get them off ebay..but i don't really trust ebay

I'm not selfish enough to just make a topic solely for that so i want to promote discussion of rare games to..name ones you're looking for or would like to get. Please give descriptions.

Currently I'm looking for theses titles in this order.

DIGIMON WORLD ps1. Its one of the most original titles around then bandai tore the series to pieces. In this one it sorta plays like a taomagotchi. You get one digimon at a time feed it and take care of it train it and fight it. And try to get it to digivolve into a form you want since each digimon has multiple forms its a challenge to do so. The game is an adventure type and you're digimon controls himself in battle running and fighting. You can use items on him and if he is smart enough you can give him orders. Other then that he follows you around the world you teach digimon new attacks by fighting him against a digimon with an attack he can learn. This game plays like i think pokemon should. Bandai later raped the idea by making the sequels turn based final fantasy rip offs.

HEART OF DARKNESS ps1. This game is so unheard of i almost thought it diden't exist and i only played it in my dreams until i found it online.
Its a side scroller puzzle game like oddworld where you play as a boy on a quest to save his dog whiskey from the shadow creatures. The game is very difficult and actually quite pretty for its age. Its hard to explain look it up.

LEGEND OF THE MANA ps1: An extremely deep side scrolling RPG with a real time combat system. This is IMO one of the most in depth RPGS around tons of weapons and later on you can forge you're own armor magic instruments weapons and even robotic golems. The golem creation is really cool because you get to set his AI pattern in form of a grid. You can also grow frut and attain pets from monster eggs plus 2 player co-op.

THEME HOSPITAl PS1: Everyone here knows this game no need to explain. Ill go more in depth on the others if asked.

Heh. Somewhere, I've got the Digimon World game. Didn't realize it was rare. But, I'm not selling it, so this is irrelevant.

A quick Google products search found me a site that apparently is, however.
Apparently, it's used, but in good condition, with box and manual. Just under $30. It seems the site only uses Paypal.
I don't know whether the site is trustworthy or not, but it may be worth a look.

Link here.

I'm really not sure where you can look for such games other than in EB/GameStop/Babbages used games or online.

But I do have to ask, why the PS version and not the PC version? It does work great for me on both XP and Vista.

Yeah, sorry, I meant to say that but I forgot to type it in when I did that post. But no, the CD version of Theme Hospital has both the DOS and the Windows versions of the game.

Also, somewhere, I have a PC version of heart of Darkness, that game was weird.

Anyway, try to find a small game/electronics collector's store. It probably wouldn't be in any major advertising outlets since it would most likely be owned and ran by a family or a single person. I'm pretty sure every city has at least one somewhere, probably in the downtown area. Just check out the more esoteric areas and who knows what you might find. You could try asking around with friends or co-workers if they know any small places like that. They do tend to stay hidden away and interestingly stocked.

You could cough'borrow'cough it from the internet. I'm running theme hospital on windows vista and it works almost perfectly, just stay away from alt-tab and you'll be alright.

I used to have Heart of Darkness in French. For the computer. Not sure what happened to it.

Great game, though.
