LOL I remember when I was super organized with my collection. Now, I just put my games wherever I can find room.

Unity, is my issue. If every game came in a red case, it'd be ok by me. A clearly labeled spine title is just fine to differentiate the games to me. What if your blu-rays came in all sorts of colors besides blue, that'd be rainbow vomit on the shelf.

It's a little picky I admit, but it makes the collection look much neater as a whole, instead of being drawn to the 1-5 odd ball games that stick out because they are different color.

Well, at least you don't just flat-out hate the red like a lot of people. Heh. I still don't really get it, though. Just a matter of perspective, I guess. Personally, I would prefer it if Blurays came in different colors. I get tired of all the blue cases, although it does make it easier for my wife when she's trying to pick up a new movie at the store.

Would you stick Metal Gear Solid 2+3 PS2 next to Metal Gear Solid 4 on your PS3 shelf?

Not me, no. I've been tempted to do something like that a few times, but it's less confusing to me if each console is separate.

Alright, so I thought I'd go ahead and share some pictures of our redecoration process. This is going to be a big post, by the way. Just keep in mind that this is very much a work in progress, so the house is currently a huge mess and our walls are pretty bare. As of last week, here's what my gaming section and the surrounding area looked like (sorry about the blurriness):

A couple of close-ups:

My portable games along with a few PC games, all next to a portion of our movie collection:

A little hard to see because of our bad lighting, but here's the new shelving unit all put together:

And now full of games:

Here are some close-ups:

It's so nice to finally have all of my games in one place! This is the first time I've had my retro games out in about 5 years or so. I need to make some cases and covers for them, but it's still nice to see them. Right now, the only games not on the new shelves are my big collector's editions that won't fit...oh, and my jewel-case PC games 'cause I'm still figuring out which ones I want to keep.

Now our movies also have a better place to live (my previous game shelves). Quite a few of them were boxed away because we didn't have room, but now they're all on display:

And in place of where the movies previously were, we now have a nice big cabinet housing just a small portion of our board games. We're waiting on two more [slightly smaller] cabinets that will go on the other side (I'm not going to organize the games until then). I really, really hope that all three cabinets will be able to contain our entire collection. If we're really lucky, maybe we can have enough space for our vinyl records.

Just for the heck of it, I'll also show off my new chair:

The next phase of redecorating will be the replacement of my beloved old desk that I have had for about 15 years:

I should post a photo of my collection but it would be comical at best, my mountain of doom has been reduced to a mountain of boxes after the move. I'm still trying to find some good shelving which is proving to be a quest on it's own. The estimate I received for the custom shelving was a bit steep and he scaled it down from what I wanted.

As much as I hate Greatest Hits, Player's Choice, Platinum Hits, and Nintendo Selects versions, I've never been bothered with the PS3 logo change.

Just don't buy any gh games and there will be no red cases! The logo change isn't a big deal for me, at once point I put the different logo types together but then different series were separated and I decided it didn't work.

There's no point in keeping a greatest hits game sealed (at least from this generation) none of them hold any value !

I did the same for years. Had 4 large rubbermaids in the closet. Then I got tired of them eating space... a bunch of plastic boxes in another plastic box packed away in a drywall box with a door on it.

I have a friend that has the boxes to everything in his house stored in the attic. His attic is almost 100% empty boxes :D

That's the Atlantic 1080 Oskar shelf which can be found in many places. Not sure exactly where he got it from, but places such as Best Buy, Target, and other retailers should carry them pretty regularly.

Thanks a bunch... I searched and they're all over Amazon as well.

I'll be searching for the same just a little deeper. Damn Gears 3 and Halo Reach statues are bulky.

On another note:
Might as well join the collection topic. I know it isn't on par with what this thread is about but...

Here's my gaming area until my entertainment center is done (needs spackle and paint still).

My evil disc binder and laptop opened to my steam library! Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic... will update when I have access to a digital camera.
