Yea I will definitely have to once I find some more shelf space since those take up a TON more space it seems like.

They're about twice as thick as a standard dvd-sized case, yeah. Their width is comparable to an actual SNES/N64 box.

Recently sold more then 100 games off. Just came to the conclution that I was buying games to have them, but never playing them. So here is my awesome collection now lol :roll:

Nice. That's my goal. I have so many games I know I bought just because they're cheap. I'm selling pretty much everything aside from maybe 5-10 games and I'm giong to try adn keep it around that number.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

UGCs can be somewhat hard to come by, especially since they're really only sold in bulk. I got mine from mediashelving.com:

They're often backordered though, not sure about now.

Those are some pretty snazzy looking cases... I should do that with my SNES/64 games...


I'm somewhat on the fence about UGCs, on the one hand they're a decent storage option if you have just cartridge and manual, but now and then I'll find Complete in Box games in the wild (which defeats the purpose of having a Universal Game Case.)

Since I don't know what my collection will mature into, my inner cheapass tells me to wait and look for other storage options. Plus chances are if a local collector falls on hard times I'll be able to get the case with a game purchase at no extra cost.

I have my suspicions that Office Depot is the way to go on the prints; I'd rather bring the JPEGs in on CD and pay 37 cents each than print three at home and blow out a $20 black ink cartridge.

So true. Ink Jets seem to bleed ink onto the paper. I think I printed something like 12 4"x6" pictures at medium DPI once and my color inkjet cartridge was running low. It is absolutely ridiculous.

in 10 years youll most likely regret selling all the games you have/had now(unless they were all 360).

i know i did.

i had a job in 8th grade and i stayed buying games weekly(getting cash at the end of every night plus a check every friday in 8th grade with absolutely nothing to spend your money on but games and weed is pretty sweet).

i eventually traded the majority to different Game Stop type stores(babages, EB, FYE at the time) for the same reason you did.

ugh, so many games i wish i woulda kept(a few ps1 and snes games come to mind).

i still have a few ps1 games that have price stickers on em too(persona 2 $30 EB, ha).

(by the way gc/xbox came out like 9th grade year for me, ps2 8th grade)

I know this post is from a couple weeks ago, but oh well..

SNES and N64 boxes don't look terrible at all on the shelf next to UGCs since they're around the same size, so it's not an either/or thing:

That's okay, my lurking powers are strong!

You're right, the boxes and UGCs do look okay together for display purposes. The only thing--I hate to say it--is that I'm starting to get paranoid about things like DUST. With UGCs and Playstation cases you can always switch them out if they get too gnarly-looking due to exposure from the elements. On the other hand, a fresh-looking SNES box can be hard to replace. For now I'll be keeping my boxes within other boxes...

Correction in step 2:

2 - buy EVERY copy you can find of modern high value PS1, SNES, NES etc. RPGs and other rarities when they were cheap. Also buy prime real estate, stocks, antiques, paintings, etc. at their cheapest. Buy low sell high.

What kind of toxic dust do you have that causes SNES boxes to become gnarly? ;) Seriously, though, I understand what you're saying.

I like seeing the pictures here for inspiration. When I get around to it, I'm going to put my Saturn and Sega CD games in custom DVD cases and put all my original cases in a box in storage. I swear those things crack just by looking at them.

My father's house was filled to the brim with antique radios, old and disintegrating bookstuffs, piles of newspapers, etc. There was even dust on toy cars and figures inside the china cabinet, dust in the joints, ugh...there was just so many collectibles I had to toss due to dust damage, mildew damage, being in the attic with rats and temperature change damage.

I used to have HESS trucks in box up on my shelf for a number of years; I swear they each started getting this brown horizontal line across the top... the life-bringing sun only brought death to them. Now the only game-related items I have up on my bookshelf are two PC large boxes, FAR from the window, and getting dry washcloth wipe-downs monthly.

Btw, what do you think about having a game storage chant? XD

Sealed copies of Valkyrie Profile for $28...I saw them...I remember them being everywhere :drool: It sort of goes with this dream sequence where I'm at a college flea market and see Final Fantasy 7 for $7 and I'm laughing in slow-motion, saying that won't be worth anything because they made millions of copies. Then I walk over to a table and buy a small case of cassettes for $20.

Alright, so i'm a mostly PC gamer (recently iPod gaming :D) so here's most of my stuff. Most of my games are digital via STEAM or Direct2Drive, steam account has about 250 games, EA has 30 and Direct2Drive has about 80. Proud to say I have never pirated a game in my entire life. Just saved up enough cash for a new gaming pc, parts will arrive tomorrow. Will post pics. :)

LOL indeed. I forgot to mention that. Basically, you should go back with a pile of gold/silver (preferably bought/pilfered from an even earlier era) and change that into the currency of that time period. Of course if time travel were really a viable option, there would be far greater goals than buying up all the collectibles etc. our little hearts desired...mainly world domination, control of the central banks, etc. but I digress.

I dig the repro-label/coverproject UGC's even when mixed with complete boxed games, although I'd rather keep the complete boxed games for display purposes only, and not mixed in with the UGCs for everyday play/wear. I ended up using the cover project to get inserts for tons of GBA and GBC/original GB games that I had and put them in DS cases, just to align everything. Very cool having uniform Fire Emblems, Zelda GB/GBC/GBA/DS games etc.

Sealed copies of Valkyrie Profile for $28...I saw them...I remember them being everywhere :drool: It sort of goes with this dream sequence where I'm at a college flea market and see Final Fantasy 7 for $7 and I'm laughing in slow-motion, saying that won't be worth anything because they made millions of copies. Then I walk over to a table and buy a small case of cassettes for $20.


FLOL, I've had some pretty vivid dreams where I'm at some random stores that are selling classic stuff, games toys comics etc. from my childhood for insanely cheap, and I'm just buying out the entire store just CRAZY excited, holding bags and bags of loot running to the car laughing like a madman...then I wake up choking a couple pillows wedged under each arm :-(

You guys have it all wrong. I would go back in time and buy every Neo Geo USA AES game. I would finish my Neo Geo Aes collection and then i can retire. Also, your uncommon Neo Geo USA AES game is pretty much worth more than your rarest PS1 RPG game.

I see your Neo geo US AES games and raise you a full boat of Stadium Events (sealed). LOL could you imagine? Tracking down every store that was shipped the US Bandai release and buying every copy before they could get recalled?
