    Default What about RARE DS Titles

    We have a thread running about picking up the rare Wii titles. Well, now that Nintendo and it's publishers aren't making any new games for the DS, what DS games should we all be looking for now to add to our collections before prices start to skyrocket?

    Hmm, don't know how rare they are, but..
    -Digimon World DS
    -Etrian Odyssey (all 3 games. The 4th is coming out on the 3DS soon)
    -Game & Watch Collection 1 and 2
    -Giana Sisters DS (You couldn't find this in stores. It was an online only game, and a friend got it for me from Newegg)
    -Hotel Dusk: Room 215
    -Phantasy Star Zero
    -Ragnarok DS
    -Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier
    -The Wizard of Oz: Beyond the Yellow Brick Road

    A couple of these I double checked on "the other auction site". Super Robot Taisen and Wizard of Oz both can go for over $30, which is more than what I originally paid for them.

    I would look for:
    -Retro Game Challenge
    -999
    - Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime

    These are not super rare, but, are all amazing games and will eventually be the ones people are looking for IMO.

    Ya, I had 999 and Retro Game Challenge but then got rid of them quite a while ago. I was thinking about picking them up again to hold onto. Both are great games!

    I actually don't own 999 yet, but I'm considering picking it up.
    Retro Game Challenge and Rocket Slime are also in my collection.

    I found Retro Game Challenge really annoying. I wanted to skip through all the annoying dialog.

    Super princess peach DS was a bit hard to find for a while, I'm not sure it it still is. It's actually fun to play.

    Thought of a couple of puzzle games :
    - Tetris DS (NOT Party Deluxe)
    - Peggle Dual Shot

    These may not be ultra rare, but, are awesome puzzlers and worthy of a place in your collection as well as bring a decent price for a complete game.

    For the older retro systems people try and collect EVERY title. So the terrible titles can be super valuable.

    With modern systems with thousands of titles, would people in the future want to collect every title? My guess is No, who wants a room full of 1000's of terrible kiddy DS games and a few hundred good games.

    So the question is how will people decide what sub-set of titles to collect? With the DS it could be by publisher, Atlus for example has a cult following already. So I would try and pick up the less popular lower production run titles from key developers/publishers.
