Very nice. I've found that the Japanese RPG-type games are the ones that retain their value over time and usually increase in value. The "collector editions" of games don't seem to be much more valuable than the game itself, however. It's a funny market.

Batman: Arkham City

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

I also ordered the hardcover edition of the Prime guide for Skyrim. Both of which haven't arrived at my doorstop but are being shipped now.

Usually I'll try and get the Collector's Edition of any game but Australia has terrible collections so I'm starting to use Amazon now. Hopefully I can pick up a few older game collections for display. :)

Don't have any collectors editions right now but I'm damn sure going to get my hands on the Borderlands 2 and Bioshock Infinite ones, assuming they have them.

That Skyrim one looks very nice though.

I am however intrigued and amused by some of the titles that JPRGs, and many Japanese games in general, tend to have.

Something like Gundum Project Gundum II, or Disagea A Promise Unforgotten or Starhope International something-or-other.

I know I am being stupid and that the Gundum in particular is not really called that, but its just that the names tend to be kinda off-beat. I wonder if this is because they get a little mis-translated or lost in translation when printed into English?

My question is do you like collectors editions?

I don't own any collectors editions, but there are a few that I regret not getting. BioShock Infinite had a cool Songbird statue and Arkham City had a cool Batman statue. If there weren't so many games I wanted I'd have money to spend on collectors editions.

Forza 3 and Far Cry 2 are the only collectors edition games I own.

 

I bought Far Cry 2 preowned so it's missing the DVD and shirt, it did come in the large box with the artbook and the reversible map though so not everything is missing. Forza 3 came with 3 exclusive DLC packs, VIP membership, a keychain and a branded USB stick. Both were purchased at the same price as the regular versions due to some weird pricing at my local Game store.

 

I would buy more special edition games but unfortunately I'm poor, hopefully when I get a job I can start buying some to add to the collection as it's definitely something I would like to start doing.

 

Edit: Shit I totally forgot about Dishonored, lol. It came with a DLC pack and some tarot cards. Again, I bought it at the same price as the regular copy.
