** Earlier than that, Capcom released the ''[[MilestoneCelebration Biohazard 5th Anniversary Special Package]]'' box set, which included the first three games of the series for the original UsefulNotes/PlayStation and ''Code: Veronica X'' for the PS2, along with other kinds of goodies, all in a briefcase-like case with CD holders for all the discs.

*** A separately developed compilation was released exclusively in Japan titled ''The King of Fighters: Orochi Hen'' for the PS2 (developed by [=G1M2=], the same company that did the ''Fatal Fury'', ''Art of Fighting'', and ''World Heroes'' compilations), which only includes '95 to '97 (since '94 and '98 were given [[UpdatedRerelease stand-alone remakes]] in Japan). However, some fans actually prefer the Japanese compilation despite having two games less due to the lack of loading times and extra features missing in the overseas version such as a character palette editor, online matchmaking support, and the choice to play each game with the remixed music from the Neo-Geo CD versions (the overseas version only allows players to use the standard chiptune soundtrack).

* ''Activision Anthology'' on the PS2 and PC gathers nearly all of Creator/{{Activision}}'s UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} library. It also goes the extra mile in putting you in TheEighties with its 1980s gamer's room interface and licensed songs from the era playing in the background during gameplay if you want to. The PC version even includes some homebrew games in the list.

* Since Infogrames bought (and then became) Creator/{{Atari}}, they've released many compilations of arcade and UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} games, largely featuring the same games. The first were two PC collections of six arcade games called ''Atari Greatest Hits'' released when Atari was still the intellectual property of Hasbro. When Infogrames bought the company, they packaged the 12 games into one compilation called ''Atari Anniversary Edition'' for the PC, PS2, Dreamcast and Game Boy Advance. Then, several years later, Infogrames/Atari released a compilation for the PC, PS2 and [=XBox=] called ''Atari Anthology'' which featured 18 arcade games and 62 Atari 2600 games. Finally, in 2010, Atari released the two-part ''Atari Greatest Hits'' series for the DS, which splits the contents of ''Atari Anthology'' into [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo two different DS compilations]] (one came out in 2010, the other in 2011) with 9 arcade and 30-something 2600 games on each (some of the 2600 games are exclusive to the DS games, but the 18 arcade games are the same ones that are on ''Atari Anthology'').

* The various ''Namco Museum'' collections. The most complete versions are arguably the UsefulNotes/PlayStation versions. Besides including many classic 1980s arcade games such as Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig-Dug, Pole Position, etc, they also included such titles as ''The Return of Ishtar'', ''[[VideoGame/LegendOfTheValkyrie The Legend of Valkyrie]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/GenpeiToumaden The Genji and the Heike Clans]]'' their first-ever Western releases. You can get all five volumes as digital downloads... [[NoExportForYou in Japan only.]]

One might wonder why it wasn't included in ''The Handsome Collection'' in the first place, but at least the whole trilogy, and the mind-boggling amount of DLC, was finally packed into one box.

** The originator of them all is the ''VideoGame/GodOfWar Collection'', an UpdatedRerelease of the first two games in a Blu-Ray compilation disc, with full Trophy support and anti-aliased 720p visuals running at a constant 60 frames per second to tithe players over until the release of ''God of War III''. Little did Sony know it'd take off beyond their wildest dreams... There's also a PS3 rerelease of the two PSP titles (Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta), titled God of ''War Origins Collection''. There was also a collection that combined '''both''' collections, AND ''God of War III'', titled ''God of War Sagas'' (although the Origins part is a digital download).

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' has had several compilations depending on whether you're in North America, Europe or Japan. In North America, there's ''Final Fantasy Anthology'' (''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''), ''Final Fantasy Origins'' (''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII''), and ''Final Fantasy Chronicles'' (''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' and ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', which, strictly speaking, is ''not'' a ''Final Fantasy'' game), all for UsefulNotes/PlayStation. Of these, Europe received ''Final Fantasy Origins'' and an edition of ''Final Fantasy Anthology'' which contained ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' instead of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', whose [=PlayStation=] version was released individually in Europe. There was also a Japan-only two-in-one Famicom cartridge containing ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' and the ''Final Fantasy Collection'' (IV, V and VI) for PS. Most of the games were updated slightly, mainly with [[FullMotionVideo FMV scenes]] and a bestiary and/or art gallery. There's also a UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance compilation of the first two games called ''Dawn of Souls'', and ''Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection'', a PSP remake of ''IV'' compiled with ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears The After Years]]'' and an {{Interquel}} bridging story, about what happened during the TimeSkip.
