Okay, now while my collection certainly won't be the greatest by any stretch, I will have to throw this post up as a placeholder for when I finally get around to taking the final pics of the collection in their new home. I'm going to have to throw up a couple of walls o' text for background...for that, apologies. But I like to go into details.
But, it is truly out of control. I have banker's boxes, in storage at my warehouse, of games I haven't even opened yet, that I personally purchased (i.e. I'm not a sealed game collector...just buy 'em cheap and forget about 'em thanks to the dreaded BACKLOG FROM HELL), going back to the PS1 (as well as banker's boxes full of complete and loose cart SNES, NES, N64, Sega Genesis, Turbografx16 etc. among a host of other things). Eventually when I get around to setting up my game room/mancave, I think it will be pretty damn awesome. But as of right now, my living room has to be kept "uncluttered" or the better half will have a shit fit, so I can't really put anything on display. Gotta keep the wifey happy...happy wife, happy life. At least that's what they say.
Okay...I currently have a couple of pics on photobucket of some of my complete SNES, N64, and NES games currently in storage:
EDIT: Okay, took some pics tonight of my current setup. Here's the living room entertainment center. TV's a Samsung 52" LCD, last year's model, in case you're wondering. Receiver and sound system/speakers are ooooooooooooooold RCA crap (as in, non-HDMI, low quality home theater in a box), and will be replaced as soon as I move to a larger place. The grey Ikea "modern" component unit, which doesn't match a damn thing in the house now, went very well with the old grey sheened hi def Sony big screen DLP (now donated to my parents), and is currently used to hide the bulk of the PS3, DS, GB/GBC/GBA, Wii, PS2 X360 games you will see below.
Here are most of my BluRays, on top of some CD/DVD holders. I'm trying to be more selective with my BluRay purchases, but the way prices are dropping (I love/hate you Amazon), I'm ending up upgrading a ton of DVDs I have. I have another banker's box full of BluRays, a lot tragically unopened as with many of us CAGs, in storage. Get 'em n forget 'em. But these here are generally the cream of the crop as far as my Blus go.
Now, as for the cases.
The three ridiculously thick cases on the right are all DVDs, and all full. Two are full of movies and live action TV shows, and one is mostly 80's to current cartoons/anime. Each of those giganto things hold close to 400 or so discs...I wish I were joking.
Starting from the left - leftmost case is all PS2 games, about 90% full; next is PS1 games, also about 90% full; next is Gamecube and Wii, also about 90% full; thinnest one (center) is all original XBox games also just about full (also a couple dozen X360 games). Virtually all of the games are complete with minty cases/instructions etc. but I do not have the room for them, so the cases are packed away in banker's boxes in storage. I might get some pics of those tomorrow, actually. I really don't want to go and pull all the cases out of these damn boxes because they fit nice n tight, but I've recently upgraded quite a few PS1 and PS2 games so I want to swap out the cases/inserts/instructions for the best of each on the ones that are dupes.
Most of my PS3 games below, also got a bunch of old ones still in their cases in storage. Same with Wii and a couple dozen X360 games (mostly the exclusives/RPGs). I rarely if ever buy recently released games, preorder etc. unless the deal is simply insane, since with my backlog I will gladly wait for games to be sub $20 or even sub $10...sub $5 even! Okay, so sometimes I buy at $30, but man it makes me feel so dirty!!! I'm so damn cheap! And that's why I have so many games, because I would rather buy 10 $5 games than a single $50 game!!!
And some of you out there might recognize the price tags on a couple of the collector's boxes as coming from Circuit City. Of course no way did I pay anywhere near those marked prices...waited until they were half off at least, and if you remember, they had the collector's editions at the same price as the regular editions for the liquidation. Scored a lot of amazing deals during their liquidation a little over a year ago.
Okay, so these are my GB/GBC/GBA games. Almost all of the GBA games are complete, but I (again) put their empty boxes in storage in, yep you guessed it, a couple of banker's boxes. The GB/GBC I only have a few complete, probably less than a dozen or so - most are cart only that I picked up on clearance from Gamestop last year at 85% off. The "kiddy/girly" games are in the leftmost bag, for my daughter. She gets to pull them out and play with them - lots of good quality Disney games and the like.
Gameboy Color in the middle top bag, old black and white Gameboy on the right (that giant ziploc bag is like a solid brick of GB games, LOL), and GBA games in the bottom (that Street Fighter game is a bootlegg...the only one in my collection thankfully). I've been getting DS cases and using the cover project to make matching boxes for all my GBA games, but have only done a couple dozen so far, as you will see in the next pic following this one.
Here's probably around half of my DS games. Many still tragically sealed, waiting for the chance to be played. Got another banker box full of 'em, along with another banker box full of PSP games. Here are the GBA games with DS cases made for 'em. Keep all the portable systems in the Ikea grey console, along with these games, the bagged games, PS3 and a bunch of miscellaneous games that I haven't sorted/catalogued. The Cooking game, at the far right, is the wife's. She specifically asked for it, LOL.
