My local indy game store has hundreds of SNES games, even rarer stuff. Hell, they've got a copy of Hagane in stock right now. Obviously you're going to be paying a fair bit for the rare stuff, but it's still significantly cheaper than places like eBay.

EarthBound is one of my favourite games of all time, and though I can accept this is mostly due to the rose coloured tint of nostalgia, I still have an honest appreciation for the game and it's wacky humour. My copy is CiB but I didn't purchase it as a collector's piece. My mother bought it for me when I was in sixth grade and of all my childhood SNES games, it was the only one I kept the box for due to the novelty of the giant box. (As a side note, there is no such thing as a "sealed" copy of EarthBound. Unopened is the best you can get, if you can prove it. The box was never sealed in shrink wrap like standard sized SNES boxes)

I've got these Mother 2 figures that were claw machine prizes in Japan

I display my boxes separately from my carts. Boxes go on one shelf, while games go in UGCs on another. This protects the box from the wear of being opened every time I want to play a game, and all my carts match on the shelf since they get a UGC whether or not I have the original box or not.

Goof Troop on SNES

It's a fantastic co-op action-puzzle game.

It wasn't a thrift shop, but a mom and pop video rental store.

It was just a little hole in the wall, so they didn't have much space, so in 1997 when I rented Chrono Trigger, they told me to keep it because they were getting rid of all their SNES stock to make room for N64 and Playstation. Best $1.99 I ever spent.

I've always wanted a Nintendo Playchoice 10, but I've never seen one for sale that wasn't on the other side of the country, or in another country.

Picked up X-Zone and Yoshi's Safari for SNES today to round out my collection of Super Scope compatible games.

Jurassic Park is my favourite movie of all time. BUT, if we're judging based on the strength of the trilogy, I'll have to go with Back to the Future.

My favourite two SNES artworks.

Most of what you named isn't metal, but the metal you did name, is generally, some good stuff. I'm a big fan of old school heavy metal from the 70s and early 80s when it was still showing it's Psych Rock roots, like early Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep or Blind Guardian, But I'm also a fan of newer styles like thrash, speed, power or even some symphonic metal. Iron Maiden is probably my favourite metal band of all time, and I appreciate how DragonForce takes some obvious inspiration from them.

As I have a big interest in early video game history, I find these really cool, thanks for sharing.

I've seen the opposite happen. When I added this item to my collection it was the Canadian version, but now it's listed as the US version, even though it's still showing the Canadian box: https://vgcollect.com/item/7894

the demonic creator of the sims is the one who should be gone, he is a fat SOB and nobody can stand him not even the devil himself, he is pure evil

That's some excessive hate for Will Wright. He's widely considered to be one of the greatest video game designers ever. He's created many creative and educational games and been awarded for them countless times. He's also a very strong advocate for education reform. I don't know why you hate him so much. I'd have to say Sim Ant and Sim City 2000 are my favorite of his Sim Games.

I never hate him but if this man is such a saint why did he make the sim 1 so demonic and awful? Will might have been a good man at one time but, have you even seen YT video s of The Sims one and I read in a gamer magazine once.

 that someone wrote well Will Wright creates everything and can do anything like God, (text goes) well? maybe Will Wright IS GOD? well? If will Wright is God why did he or someone else from Maxis CO, put Jesus Christ in the game that lets you set them on fire? WTF.

Sim Earth, Sim Ant, Sim Safari, SimCity, Streets Of SimCity? I still love those games but. If you look up Will Wright on the internet. This guy creates robots in real life smart? yes? unless you consider  Darth Vader a Saint

You don't hate him, but you call him demonic, evil, a "Fat SOB" which really confuses me since he's quite skinny, and that he's worse than the devil. Wow, I wonder what you have to say about people you do hate. And this, because he made a game with cartoon violence? Plenty of games have that. That doesn't make them evil or demonic. You think he's playing God because he makes video games with high levels of control... plenty of video games do that too, and the creators certainly don't think they're God. They're just creating a form of entertainment that you can choose to enjoy or not. And I'm not sure how creating robot makes him evil either? Robotics technology has been incredibly beneficial to humanity. If video games are such an offense to your delicate morality, maybe you should stop playing them instead of calling their creators evil.
