Super Star Wars (SNES)

Slightly surreal but clever and occasionally impressive Star Wars themed platformer Super Star Wars is rightfully considered one of the best 16-bit games based on the original trilogy. To grab a complete-in-box, sealed, NTSC version of it you could do much worse than bid on this Super Star Wars (SNES) eBay auction.

The definitive C64 upgrade, Commodore's classic and impressively bulky 1541 disk drive, truly unlocked the potential of the micro, and allowed for some impressive games to be loaded off its spacious 5.25" disks.

Full Throttle (MS-DOS)

Audio-visually impressive and innovative as it may have been, Lucasarts' biker-themed adventure game Full Throttle relied a bit too heavily on mini games, and was definitely on the shorter side. Still, it's a classic and highly collectible game, and genre lovers should have a look at this Full Throttle (MS-DOS) eBay auction. It's the big box version, and it seems to be in great condition.

Carrier Command (Mac)

Carrier Command was a groundbreaking, open-world, 3D, real-time strategy game with some excellently integrated action scenes that had you trying to capture/liberate an archipelago. It was clever, unique, impressively designed, and apparently also available for the Macintosh. This Carrier Command (Mac) eBay auction is how I found out, and it will let you grab the complete, boxed version of the game with audio tape, manual, and everything.

Milton Bradley's Dark Tower

I haven't mentioned vintage board games in ages, so here's a mouth-watering Dark Tower auction on eBay. It's a fully working, complete, boxed version of MB's RPG-inspired fantasy game, and though not the best designed offering ever, the titular, digital Dark Tower still looks awesome.

Oh, it's a Vectrex 3D Imager!

Haven't seen one of those for quite some time, but I do have to admit that the Vectrex 3D Imager headset seems incredibly elegant when compared to today's headsets. It's not much of a VR system admittedly, but it will allow you to play certain Vectrex games in stereoscopic 3D, and that was hugely impressive back then. That is also very rare today, so if interested in one complete in its box do have a look at this Vectrex 3D Imager eBay auction.

Stunt Car Racer (Commodore 64)

Stunt Car Racer remains to this very day an utterly unique, and --I would argue-- unsurpassed racing game, and even though its 8-bit versions are not as impressive as the amazing 16-bit ones, they are still both ridiculously fun to play, and technically impressive. So, if you are looking to race and jump around those elevated 3D tracks once again do give this Stunt Car Racer (C64) eBay auction a look. It's the Kixx budget re-relesae and it comes on tape.

Amstrad 464 Plus & Games

Combining a decent (but decidedly failed) 8-bit console with an improved CPC 464 under the same sleek-for-the-time hood, the Amstrad 464 Plus was a lovely, well-priced micro that along with the 6128 Plus helped prolong the life of Amstrad's classic line well into the '90s. This particular 464 Plus currently being auctioned on eBay is a Spanish working version of the machine that comes with the Burnin' Rubber / BASIC cartridge, as well as several other mostly boxed yet untested games including Match Day II, Xevious, Oh Mummy, and Beach-Head.

Knuckles Chaotix (Sega 32X)

If you are looking for a solid, relatively rare, well preserved side-scroller for your Sega 32X, you should definitely have a look at this Knuckles Chaotix (32X) eBay auction. The game on offer comes complete in its original box with cartridge, manual, insert and what seems to be like a warranty card.
