Thank you very much for answering my stupid question.
I haven't had a chance to go through every single game title by title, but I've seen many SNES and N64 ones that are quite questionable.
Can someone answer this, was "1" just used by default whenever a game's rarity was not known? Because there are a ton of 1s in the SNES database that could range from anywhere to 3 to 7 depending on the title. I find it hard to believe someone would really call those 1s, rather they probably just didn't research them?
Edit AHA - I now realize that does rarity across all platforms, not within a platform. I don't necessarily agree with this but it is what it is and as long as you are aware of it then no big deal.
For example, a Clayfighter Sculptor's Cut manual on N64 is a clear R10 within N64, by far the hardest item to obtain in the set. However, when you compare it across platforms like to an SE box, it is not nearly as rare. I'd still categorize it as an R7 or R8 at least even across everything...

WTB Clayfighter Sculptor's Cut Manual Only... PM ME!!
I'm fairly new to the game.com, so I question whether almost every game is worth $1. It should probably be more than that.
No every Game.com game should not be more than a dollar. Go and get ahold of several games and try to sell them for more than a dollar and let us know if they do!
If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?
Check out my list of trades on GameTZ Link
I don't know... A quick check of "Completed Auctions" on eBay shows a bunch that actually sold going for $2-8. I think some of the later, rarer releases are certainly worth more than $1. Though to be fair, we're talking NIB, not cart-only, when looking at these auctions.

Got any obscure game stuff?
I have an issue with a few Sega Saturn rarities.
Galaxy fight is a 3 yet it only has 6 sales per year on ebay...
Also, Dark legend is also a 3 but it has only 11 sales per year. I think they should be MUCH higher on the rarity scale.
What's up with all the games that have 0 as their rarity.
Mr. Nutz for SNES seems to be pretty rare in the NA region.

I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]
Looking for: Majesco version of Sega Game Gear system w/ no sound/video problems. It's black and has a purple start button.
My myspace photo albums, including entire game collection except for some accessories
Does anyone update the lists from here?
Those lists are hellishly useful, but the rarities seem far off. Also, the link to 'forum thread' on that page is broken.
I've been collecting N64 pretty intensely for the past few months, and I can mention a few I'd like to see changed.
For example - Conker's Bad Fur Day - Currently at R1 - would boost to at least R5.
Elmo's Letter & Number adventure are at R5, and I see them quite often - I'd say R3.
Beetle Adventure Racing is one of the most common games I come across, has to be an R1 (not an R3!). Likewise for Excitebike 64.
The Collectors Edition of LoZ:OoT is not a R1, it is at least an R4. Same for Majora's Mask - which doesn't have separate entries on that list.
The following games could use a boost in rarity by one level - 007: World is not enough, Clayfighter's Sculptor's Cut, Harvest Moon, and SW: Battle for Naboo.
Anyway, sorry for all that babbling.
I'm not sure where else to post this and didn't want to make a separate topic. There's a spelling mistake with one of the games.
Goemon is spelled "Goeman". I couldn't find the listing when searching for Goemon, only when I searched for Great Adventure did it turn up.
Edit: The same mistake occurs with a few other entries.
There are other entries for Goeman too when I searched for that name, I can't think they're right either.

Tokimeki Memorial (PC Engine) is definitely not worth $25, $5-15 is a bit closer, a rarity level of 6 is far too high for a game that can be bought on Ebay any day of the week, it should probably be a 2 or 3.
