Buying more expensive single games
GeeseTheDuck
I just bought the NTSC-J PS2 version of KOF 2k on ebay.
While i could have bought the 2K-2K1 package in my local game store for much less,
i still wanted to have the game as the only thing in the package.

So, it is maybe twice as expensive.
Only one game instead of two.
And i have to dig out my Japanese PS2 to play it.
Yet, i still went with it just to only have that game.

Does anyone else have this kind of need?

SORT OF...
I think quite a few individuals have some kind of subconscious underlying issue with, specifically, budget range titles and releases, whether it be a standalone release or a compilation. In relation to your point, I always tend to buy both the UK release and the JP release and I tend to extract more enjoyment from the more obscure (and usually more expensive!) JP release! Yes... odd, I know. For example, I'd rather play the Japanese SShodown Anthology on my JP PS2 as opposed to the PAL release - I think because it feels like a more genuine experience(?). Fucked up, yes?

I've paid a good deal of money to import games, but almost half my library of ps2 games are Japanese so having two systems was well worth the investment.
