I have an obsession with a company called Limited Run Games. They take some of the most popular digital-only release games and make physical media for the Playstation 4, Playstation Vita and now the Switch.
They are still a fairly new company, but I love what they are doing and have collected all but 3 of their Vita-released games. They are still releasing new ones, and I am sure to gobble them up on release day.
The significance of their name is that they keep each release to a very small number of cartridges. In most of the releases, you won’t see more than 3,000 released world-wide. It adds a sense of exclusivity, which makes it very attractive to collectors such as myself. They also often have collector’s editions with many of the releases. I will generally only do the collector’s set if it’s a game I really enjoy, such as Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee. I had that game for the original XBox and enjoyed it a lot.
They are only up to about 60 games released for the Vita, which is the platform I primarily collect for. I have about 20 of the PS4 releases as well. Even though I don’t have a Switch, I have pre-ordered the first 10 releases there as well. If what happened with the first releases for the other systems, these will be worth a lot more than they are now.
Some of my favorite releases so far have been Saturday Morning RPG, Octodad, Thomas was Alone, Broken Age (gotta love DoubleFine), Oceanhorn, Steworld Dig and Heist and several Bit.Trip games.
