Now is the last chance to let me know why you think they should or shouldnt be released, maybe you can sway my decision.

Due to fact that these games are so rare to find, please dump what you have got :)

I think they should be released for many reasons. One that stands out for me is that the average gamer will only have a slim chance at experiencing what they are like. (I'm assuming these are the 4 undumped games you are referring to..)
SD Gundam Dimension War looks amazing! Unfortunately, I have never even seen it for sale. I would definitely enjoy playing it, and would still purchase it if ever given the chance.
Space Invaders Virtual Collection is like a dream. Space Invaders is fun enough, but to put it on the V-boy...simply put, as long as I can play the game, that's all I need to suffice until I find a good deal on it ;)
Virtual Bowling..this is one of the games my friends are always talking about wanting to play. Unfortunately we will probably never be given that chance to, considering how IMPOSSIBLE it is to find! I would enjoy it very much. :)
Virtual Lab: I've read many articles on this one thanks to this amazing fan made site, and I would honestly love to experience it, even though it's an "unfinished" game.

So overall, I think you should go ahead and release your dumps, because collectors will still purchase the games, and everyone, like me, that just really wants to experience them would get a chance of a lifetime! And I would definitely play these with more friends too, maybe getting them to get attached to the V-Boy and purchase one of there own, which might even persuade them to make their own games for it.

WOW man im sure thousands of people would love you if you released these, i doubt il ever get to play anyone of them games, sadly i cant afford them but if i could i would buy them..

i would love to play space invaders on the virtual boy, also virtual bowling - seing it being different to nesters funky bowling, an rpg (sd gundam dimension war) looks like great fun and to play an unfinished game (virtual lab) would be fun and funny to show to friends.

These games seem verrryyy cool and its a pitty that theyre so rare, but for people like you who have them im impressed and to even take thought of dumping these games is very generous indeed, maybe you could have a website and release 1 a week or month or something, start getting people to your site and maybe have a donation addition for the hard earned money youve spent into owning these games, someone to dump them would be a great day for i and many others

Great work on collecting these games im impressed, and the ACTUAL game would still be a want for any collector, wether its been dumped or not, i myself first played tones of games on a VB emulator and to experience on a actual virtual boy is even better... if these get released i may even consider buying a flashboy!

once again, congratulations on your collection and your generosity of thinking of dumping these games.


all credit shall go to you!

Not sure what the point of this post is... but I'll say the same thing I always say... they're your games, you're free to do whatever you want with them. It will devalue your games, so if you're okay with that, then go for it. If you're doing this for attention/praise, you're gonna be disappointed... you'll be lucky to get a couple thanks for it. And once it gets to the ROM sites, nobody will even know where they came from. The games aren't that great, so they won't actually get played much... but people really want the ROMs for their "ROM collections" because they're not freely available.

So yeah... do whatever you want... our opinion shouldn't matter, unless you're just trying to get people to beg for them.

Really it was just a post to let everyone know that they are coming, there is nothing that would stop me from releasing them, so begging for them would do absolutely no good as they are coming out in due time, wait until I get ahold of some of the proto roms then again who's to say I don't have a few of those also
