So no other games with similar collection based side quests running through?

Xenosaga Episode I has a pretty neat trading card game in it. It's more similar to magic the gathering than Triple Triad though, but I spent a while with it. It's fun but all you get for playing it is useless junk, and more cards.

Tales of Eternia had a mini-game too... but it was so optional and useless I don't even remember what it was.

Not that this has anything to do with the topic at hand, but Pokemon HeartGold's Voltorb Flip is addicting as shit. I probably dumped 10 hours or more into that thing.

it certainly helped that the music that played during it was catchy as hell

Tales of Eternia had a mini-game too... but it was so optional and useless I don't even remember what it was.
that game was basically UNO and i was fun as hell. i will boot that game up sometimes just to play that. for some reason i love to hear Farah say: "awww icant win"

Blitzball was pretty cool.
i agree but a lot of people here didnt like it but it at least had some worthwhile prizes. dark matter anyone?

Suikoden has a gamling game in each one, and I guess the characters themselves are the collectables.

The World Ends With You has Tinpin Slammer. Nothing else really comes to mind though.
If it'll hold Jello, Utah will put Jello in it.

I could never ever win the ToE UNO game.  I hate when it's based so much on chance like that...

I liked the Abyss/Vesperia poker.  Unfortunately, bets only were so much, and you essentially could never lose if you played smart enough.  I can't remember a mini-game I really liked otherwise; too many are just filler, and I've hated colliseums (if those count) since FF7's.

Triple Triad: Better than drawing.

Tetra Master: My A lost to a 0? WTFITS!?!

Blitzball: Do you have Jecht Shot? y/n; If 'y' abuse the fuck out of Jecht Shot; Else reset and get Jecht Shot;


That said, I did like DQV DS's Bruise the Ooze. At least, a lot more than DQVI's Slime Curling.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

FFX-2 had that sphere break game which was kind of cool although the only thing you really got from that was the Lady Luck Dresssphere.

I think the biggest problem of mini-games are that they are too long.
Triple Triad was fun because a game lasted about a minute maximum. As opposed to a Blitzball game which is like what? 12 minutes?
At that point, it's not a mini-game anymore, it's an entire game...

Also, actual rewards are always fun.

Just remembered. Dragon Quest 8 had a really cool monster battle arena minigame where you went all around the world capturing monsters to fight it in it, and you actually got pretty cool stuff for winning in it (i think) like rare equipment.

It was pretty fun, but the fact the AI chose actions randomly for the monsters was frustrating sometimes when it went full retard mode -_-

you can win i just wish you didnt have to play as Reid.

also persona 2 had a casino i made mad bank there. also the poker in TotA was so addictive to me that i unlocked everything the first time i went in. also grandia 3 had this weird gambling minigame.
