This thread has me so conflicted, add to my huge backlog of games, or try and add to my collection? Off to do work on that back log while I ponder it.

Damn, that's a lot of portables... I remember when my dad was buying me my first system, it was either the well known Game Boy (we were a Nintendo family) or an Atari Lynx (color screen on a portable? wow!). It had to be a portable because we only had 1 TV back then. Thank god I didn't get a Lynx.

BTW, Gameboy415, you could easily store your handheld games in a binder using those baseball card sleeves if they're just carts (no box/manual). I think it would actually look pretty nice. Something like these.

I had that very same idea a little while ago but it completely slipped my mind - thanks for the reminder! :D

I actually have Nyko "Deluxe Care Cases" for my GB/GBC games (hard plastic cases that hold 12 games each) but I've been looking for a better solution for loose GBA carts so I'll probably go the card sleeve/binder route.
These actually look like a good fit for GBA carts: http://www.amazon.co..._hu-rd_add_1_dp

I'm pretty sure I have a "Gameboy" branded plastic binder that holds GB games. I have pokmeon branded ones that hold cards, but the gameboy one has horizontal sheets.


EDIT: It looks like these. I think I have both of these too:

I'd love to see a pic of the Game Boy binder if you can find it!

I have a couple of those Pokemon binders myself but they're a bit too small for games.

If it makes you feel better I saw 3 red ones at Target for 35.xx on clearance. I reported it in the Target thread and when I went back an hour later they were gone. That's when I decided I should buy first, think later when I am at retail stores. :cry:


Does not at all make me feel better :( I wasn't at all jealous or anything, just 'mirin' your awesome pickup. I'm actually quite happy that you found such a killer deal :D

And so I'm actually contributing to the topic itself...

The wife and I are saving moolah right now, so the game budget is tight. Not much new to show off, buuuuut I have been trying to find crafty ways to store and display what I already do have to help get my collecting fix. I've got about 1/2 of my handhelds boxed up at this point. They're sort of a pain in the ass, so I've been doing them slowly.

Well the day after posting my collection I ended up doing a bit of a cleansing to make room, so, here's the state of my collection now.

Posted Image

As you can see I almost halved it. But I'm fine with that. Because as cool as the really big collections on here are, I just can't do that. I don't have the room, and I just don't want to have this room full of games I'm probably never going to touch again, at least on a good 75% of them. PLus it makes room for more games.

Posted Image

And I now have a PS3, so that's a pretty major addition to the collection.

He's got a lot more stuff in the Old School section, you should see how much work he puts into each case. I don't care for custom cases and whatnot (probably because I don't have the talent), but even I appreciate his awesome work.

Actually I thought you mentioned you mod consoles. I would like to see your work and maybe bounce some ideas off you. I am sitting on 10-12 NESes that want to be pretty.


gameboy: I will work on finding that binder. I just built 4 new shelves for inventory, so I think I shoved them somewhere in the mix.

I do all sorts of weird gaming mods, for sure. I'm actually working on a production product that may interest the old fart gamers here. I'll post more on that as I move along with the project.

Anywho, shoot me a pm. We can chat about your many, many NES consoles 8-)

Yeah, definitely, they look great. I thought they looked like UGC's, but it's such a clean job that I thought you must've bought them that way. I unfortunately don't have the patience (or steady hands) for anything crafty like that.

Finally got everything set up. Now I just need to never buy another game again and I'll be fine...

Also I know I have VB and Wii games but neither system.. The VB games were from a lot and I know I'm never finding another complete Jack Bros again so I held on to it, and I had a Wii but my brother kept it when I moved, so I'm probably waiting for the WiiU unless I can find one dirt cheap.

I've got a bunch more posters and stuff I want to hang but they're a bit more difficult to replace, mostly posters from older games, so I want to get them framed instead of just tacking them up.

@aptanor - another beautiful library I'd love to spend a weekend with. Your GC games are so black labely:shock: and no shovelware!!!

This thread has really bounced back after devolving into 10 pages of shelving discussions. I even love seeing the small collections. Hey all you lurkers - don't be shy. Pics. Now. Do it.

You could also get protectors, which take up much less space and might even be a bit cheaper. They're like giant card protectors for you posters. I don't think they're super common, but you might have some luck if you check your local comic, hobby, and craft shops.

I like this forum a lot. The folks here are a chill bunch and rampant trolling isn't an issue. Low stress.

Isn't that often the case? But, at least it gives you a project and goal to work towards. Don't know about you, but I LOVE projects like that :)

Thank you, sir. I REALLY enjoy making stuff. Honestly, I have spent very little time actually gaming lately and far more making stuff for my games LOL!

Here's what those cases are holding, in case anyone is interested.

Thank you as well!

It's not something that I was ever interested in until I had to case some loose disc games that I had. Then I got WAY into the whole thing after finding this and the cover project sites. It's like an addiction for me at this point. In fact, I just hit 100 SNES covers completed today :D

Aptanor, where'd you get that drawer for NES games? I have one for N64 and I'd love one to keep my NES games out of the dust.


Those things are getting harder and harder to come by. I've got a few of the N64 drawers that I no longer use since I've been casing my carts, but I don't wanna give them up since I know they'll be hard to replace should I ever want to. Prolly have to just watch eBay and local shops/flea markets/etc. Good luck!


Here's the rest of the stuff as it sits right now. I find myself reorganizing a lot lately. I hate the oddball and varied depth, width, and height of these stupid built in shelves. I really wanna yank 'em this summer and put in something cleaner and simpler.
