So How Many Rare Games Are There?

I’m a collector. Obviously and to no one’s surprise, what I like to collect are Rare related items. Be it games, posters, figures, strategy guides, promotional materials etc. I have amassed a rather good collection over the years and continually add more to it each and every month. My primary objective though is to acquire every game that Rare has ever developed. So yesterday, I took the time to compile a list (via an app on my phone) of all of them in order to keep track of what I have and what I’m missing.

So with the list completed and everything accounted for including ports, arcades, remakes, downloadable titles and so forth, there are exactly 133 Rare games. Yeah, 134. That is a lot. I’m working to compile an entire section for the website here that will include all of those games so you can see for yourselves what each of them are.

What do you think? Are you surprised by the sheer amount of titles they’ve developed in their near thirty year history? I am and, while I still have a long ways to go, I’m looking forward to one day owning them all.
