I'm looking at the vast amount of ROM files included in the Collectorvision ROM pack that sells for $75. But there's so many it's hard to know what the general standard is of them. A lot of them seem to have been sold originally as physical carts which suggests they aren't knock offs. I have however played at least one of the games on the list, "Zippy Race", and it was pretty poor. The list can be found here:

For those in the know who have purchased these files, what are the standout conversions/games. Is it worth it?

I missed out on the club in 2019 and purchased the ROM pack access as a consolation. I did get into the 2020 club this time around. I thought the ROM pack access was well worth it as it was just over $1 a game and supports CollectionVision's efforts to keep this platform alive. 

 

That being said, the standouts to me are: Sydney Hunter, Mario Bros, Ripcord, Side Track, Pooyan, Mr. Chin, Moon Patrol, Galaga, Hangon and Elevator Action.

That’s wild. I love Zippy Race! So mellow, so cool, and eeeeasy going (good for present times). I’ve gotten past Vegas, but it’s been a while since I’ve played. 
 

I think the full CollectorVision family of games is overall amazing. Sadly, there are a few duds, but I totally appreciate CollectorVision’s willingness to publish enthusiast’s creative works! I’m glad they’re in the game of small-time publishing, and I will always support them.
