I've never bought a special or collector's edition of a video game before up until now,and i know some people buy them all the time. So i was just wondering what everyone's first(or first few) collector's edition was. For me Resistance 3 & Skyward Sword's collector's editions are going to be my first,i still don't know if i'm buying Arkham City's collector's edition or not.

Halo 2 limited edition for the regular X-Box was one of the first special editions of a game I had ever bought.

The only other one since then was the Bioshock 2 collector's edition for the PS3 which set me back $150. That was a very sweet set which came with an actual record of the soundtrack for the game as well a sweet hardcover book of game art and a Donnie Darko esque poster.

Here's a pic although it is for the 360 version -

The Lunar Eternal Blue: Complete Special Edition for the PS1, though I'm not sure it counts, since it was the ONLY edition of the game (Working Designs was very much like Atlus USA, bless their souls). As far as an actual special edition of a game (with a regular edition also in print), it would probably be the Final Fantasy XII CE that Gamestop had made. When I bought it, it was the same price, so I figured why the hell not.

I have a rather rare collectors edition of a PS1 game, Lunar Silver Star Story Complete, which is also a great RPG too.

Got it when it first came out in 1998, I believe it was.

Sadly, I bought the Used version at the time, which was just the jewel case, the games, and the OST/Making Of. I only have Lunar 2's stuff.

I have a total of zero. Main reason is because the ones I see these days are overpriced to absolute fuck, and contain nothing more than a shitty book and a damn statue. No thanks. Wish I was into The Godfather when that game first came out though, would have liked to have bought the special coffin box edition at least. My mate's brother was doing work experience in a game shop at the time and they gave it to him for free at the end of the two weeks he was there. Bastard :p.

I want to say the Gears 2 special edition was the first I got, but there's something in the back of my head saying it isn't.

That's the first one I remember getting at least.

What a waste of money these 'special editions' are. I don't have any.

EDIT: Come to think of it, I have this, only cause it was the same price as the normal edition, but fuck what a terrible game this was.

I have little to none of collectors as I find them overprice like most of the others do, but there are some games that I enjoyed very much which made me sad for not purchasing the collector editions in the first place.

My first CE: Mass Effect 2
