Weird thing about that F.E.A.R. thing is that the figure included in the CE was scarier than the actual game.

They make a TON of them in Japan with all sorts of characters... The boobs are one thing, but I laughed so hard when I saw a male version with "pecks" jutting out...... Couldn't help but think to myself, man-boobs?

That sh!t exists and in the internet world I live in, are common.

That Cardcaptor one definitely wins "why?" award; However as of late I'll just stick to the regular versions of games, special editions are only if it's the same price AND has something useful like a guide or some type of fold out map.

i never really saw the point of these things because i think it's a waste of money (and a lot of these have proven my point). the only one i ever got was for dark souls, but that was only because it was the same price as the regular edition... and when i got it, half of the pages in the art book were glued together, so it was ruined.

won't get fooled again.

You wont get fooled into getting additional stuff for free again?

It's a personal thing. Some people like to collect stuff, and those extra things are sometimes kind of cool if your into the games and such. Most of them aren't really worth it nowadays, and generally if you wait a couple months you can find them at lower prices. Saw the Ninja Gaiden 3 one at GS for $39.99 a couple weeks ago and it has a decent statue in it. In fact most have gone down like that this gen, so it's generally better to wait. If you miss out then oh well. Things like the Ni No Kuni Wizard Edition are rather rare, but NIS limited editions sometimes have nice stuff in them and they don't usually cost more than $20 more.

I've noticed a lot of times on this site, and some others, that people seem to assume that everyone that is picking up a collector's edition is doing so because they are trying to make an actual money investment, banking on the price going way up. While that may be true for some people out there, it's not really the case among most collectors, and again, games are generally terrible investments as they are generally a commodity that goes down in value in the short term. You usually have to wait a long time for older games prices to rise high enough to recoup investment outside of some exceptions (like Ni No Kuni), and even then it still only happens for those exceptions for the most part.
