The best and worst videogame Collector’s Editions ever

OPM: Sometimes they’re amazing, sometimes they’re awful - as the recent Dead Island Riptide debarcle proved. They are, however, always expensive. We trawl gaiming history to bring you the best and worst PlayStation Collector’s Editions ever. (BioShock 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

If they had simply put a zombie head on the bust they were selling for Dead Island, I would have wanted it. But as it was it looked like a sex toy for zombie enthusiasts. And no, I'm not exaggerating. They really do sell sex toys of just torsos with no arms or head.

How many weird looks would I get if I had that in my room?

Lol... I actually have 2 of their worst CE's

The Arkham Asylum and the force unleashed 2 one... the force unleashed 2 one is rubbish... but I still love the AA one, except for the fact it came with no real case for the game

Does the Batarang work? :0 Eventhough it's stuck to the base?

I have the Fallout 3 one. I thought it was pretty cool. I've never actually used the lunch box but, it sure as hell looks nice on my shelf next to my vault toy bobble head and other Playstation goodies.

Fallout 3 wasn't bad. It was stuff that you could scavange in the game.

It rustles my jimmies a little bit when conservative people act as though sexual things are bad and make baby jesus cry

I didn't see anywhere where the article claims sexual things are bad, making jesus cry, or even insinuates either. Assuming you're talking about the Dead Island "controversy-that-shouldn 't-be", you've got to admit that it can be very jarring to a person walking into a room with that thing displayed anywhere, openly or not (might even be worse if it isn't openly displayed) if they, too, weren't a zombie fan of the same level or had no idea about Dead Island or video games.

That said, I don't see why people freaked out so badly; I can definitely see and understand zombie fans buying it. While I and many others feel it is tacky from a decorative standpoint and just looks disgusting, I find it more disgusting that people bash others for wanting what they don't want and bashing companies for making what wouldn't ever buy.

(EDIT- Grammatical errors were bugging me)

I agree with all of these except for Fallout 3's; I rather liked the clock (then again, it is what I use in my game room instead of a typical wall clock) and I do use my Fallout lunchbox to pack my lunch when going to work. I will admit, though, that the lunchbox likely wouldn't be used by most. However, I would have loved a life-size replica of the Brotherhood of Steel's Power Armor helmet regardless of whether or not it is wearable or not instead of the lunchbox. Love the bobblehead, though lol.

The Fallout 3 and New Vegas collector editions as well as the Bioshock 2 collectors edition are some of my favorites to date. I don't want figurines, heads, helmets or busts thank you. Making-of books/vids, art-of books and the occasional scale replica are just fine.

I have inFamous 2, Uncharted 3 and God of War 3 collectors. All of those editions are good but my favorite was inFamous 2 though they should have mentioned it! I worn that backpack everywhere...

Halo 2. Just came with a fake tin case, and a half hour documentary on the making of the game which you can watch on youtube whenever...

I don't think Youtube was around when Halo 2 was released though...So I think, at the time, if you wanted to watch that making of, you had to get that collector's edition.
