I'd feel more at ease if I was back in school with finals to worry about =(

Exactly what I was thinking. I miss the days when school was my biggest concern.

Yeah, that is what it is. :applause: I guess you have to be logged into photobucket to see it. I checked and all of my pics are public.

They still need a better way to link to it without a login.


I tried logging in and when I clicked the links it would redirect me to my recent activity. Photobucket sucks now damn.

you have to switch back to the old photobucket to view the photos

Is the whole album on the first link everything you found at garage sales? You found some really nice games

Yup. thanks! I used to find better stuff. I haven't finished posting my finds this year, but it is not nearly as good as the previous years finds. ;)

If everyone subscribes, I will be posting the rest of my finds here: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=313065

Finally got my apartment mostly cleaned from moving in. Here is the layout so far. Also thought about laying out the games to take pictures for archiving reason but thought it would be a mess and not enough people would care to see individual titles vs the collection as a whole.

The overview.
Posted Image

shelves from left to right:
anime/tv/most watched DVD and Blurays & CEs (pile to the left is my trade pile)
Posted Image

Middle shelf (top to bottom): loose SNES, N64, boxed Game Gear games, DS CEs, 3DS games, Odyssey, Atari 400, Atari 2600, Pico, 32x, Intellevision, 3DO, Seca CD, Saturn, long box PS1 and big box PS2 games. On top are more CEs for different systems.
Posted Image

The big shelf. All shelves are packed 2 deep. Top even more CEs (mainly PSP). Top shelf back all loose NES games. Top front more NES games with boxed Master System games. 2nd top back boxed GB/GBC/GBA and boxed NES games. 2nd top front boxed SNES. Middle shelf back DS games and some Wii games. Middle front PS3. 2nd shelf is all boxed Genesis games. Bottom shelf is all DVDs (my complete sets of Ghost in the Shell SAC 1 & 2 are down there).
Posted Image

The game setup.
Posted Image

Controller bins/Vectrex/and the blue shelf. The blue shelf is 2 deep and has the rest of my Wii collection, my largest collection which is PS2 games, and PSP game behind that. On top of blue shelf is Turbografx and Dreamcast games.
Posted Image

Not seen in the overall pic at the top.

PS1 games and Gamecube games
Posted Image

My big red 6 slot bad boy. I oiled the wheels before the move, hence the tarp. Also this is a bitch to move (nearly 1.5 times bigger than normal Neo Geo MVS cabs). Nearly crushed by father moving this up the stairs. I have to figure out how to "deconstruct" it before I move again.:lol:
Posted Image

and finally my board game collection (video game system boxes on top with my girlfriend's high quality DDR mats). Don't worry there are some video game board games in there, a few Pac Man games and a Donkey Kong Pog toss game (?).
Posted Image

I forgot to take pictures of my closet that houses the really big CEs like Steel Battalion, Skyrim, and Halo Reach. I hope this tides you guys over until some of these other guys post their collections *looks at slowdive and wiggy

Thanks! I remember thinking..."I've never seen that one before", but I didn't realize it was selling that high!

Your collection is much more impressive than mine! I really like the last pic with the boardgames and boxed stuff! :applause:

The only thing that might be a positive about my collection is the fact that all of my retro stuff was bought for under $1 a cart on average at garage sales and thrift stores. I didn't buy it on ebay or anything like that. :)

Personally, I prefer being able to see what each individual game is. A collection as a whole means nothing to me.

But like the others, I am jealous of that open space. And I quite like setups that have the game systems lined up neatly and next to the TV, though I could do without the crates.

I thought they were milk creates... (man, haven't seen milk creates in ages). Didn't realize they actually sell those.

I don't think they look that bad. It works fine with his setup. It just looks like a nice game room. Now, if half his collection was in high end shelves and the other half was in a brown boxes, then I'd have an issue.

I love discussion, but this thread has turned in to 30 pages of talk, one collection photo set, thirty more pages of talk. Let's see more pics, people!

They probably are milk crates. But I own Yaffa blocks and they were quite useful, especially in college.

Well I just got back home from school for Christmas break. Decided to rearrange my room. Not quite done yet but most of it is finished. The black table where the 32" is will be replaced with my glass TV stand that I left back at school once I'm done next semester. The black shelf on the left will replace the brown dresser against the wall.

Very nice collection.

As a sidenote, if this guy had some of those Yaffa blocks, then I'd say, "Dude, WTF!". They wouldn't work here.
