Rare Games List?

Would it be possible to create a 'Rare Amiga Games List'?

I ask because Id like to know what to look out for when I see older titles.

Is this possible?

What are your thoughts on how 'rare' would be defined in this case.

Depends on what kind of "rare" you are after. Pretty obviously you must mean real physical copies, but also consider:

1) Rare, as in, hard to find an original
2) Rare, as in, hard to find a first-edition (non-budget) original
3) Rare, as in, hard to find an original that seems to work & in good condition
4) Rare, as in, hard to find a *good* original (unmodified, and with no errors)

People have pointed out that what we consider a rare game to be "strange". Indeed, what we consider rare is not actually be the same "rare" as most people think of it. A case in point, very nearly all copies of The Secret of Monkey Island that we have come accross are modified (due to save games) - so to us it is a rare game, but most people would probably say this game is rather common.

The point is - it depends on why you want them.

didn't monkey island require you to use a separate disk for saved games?

I thought that too. But I guess nearly everyone used the originals instead.

The same goes for Sensible Soccer - I'd love to find an original with the original custom teams still in place.
