Everytime I see people post pics, I want to do the same. But.. I am...

1. Too lazy (or busy with kids) to clean up and make it look nice
3. Too lazy....

I don't want to get ridiculed like the guy with the nasty looking door handle did (though my house isn't nearly that dirty... just dirty from a 4 & 6 year old and me having to work 60 hr weeks..)

Hypothetically speaking though.. if I did take pics, how do you go about posting them in thread? Just link through a photo shack account or something?

Thanks for pics though.

I use tinypic.com pic what you want to upload, resize for forum, let it upload, then copy the link it gives you for posting in a forum. Couldnt be simpler

I keep thinking about taking pictures of my stuff, but I know that in a couple months one of my roommate's is moving out and my wife told me I could use the spare room as a gaming room, so I'm just kind of waiting on that. I currently have a lot of stuff boxed up in my closet that wouldn't end up in the pictures anyways.

Also Monoxide, it's killing me that your games aren't alphabetized.

All the sports games. I used to play Baseball/Basketball games religiously....

Posted Image

The regular games....A LOT of the ones I used to have were sold back in the day, and a few recently, so its not what it used to be....I actually have a third counter strike disc somewhere. Played that game so much I scratched up the discs. Somewhere I have the vanilla case with a REALLY destroyed game disc inside.

Posted Image

Case is lying around someone, I miss the first one :( which I sold....

I have two xbox. One is a normal xbox, the other is modded with a 250gb hdd and I love it <3.

EDIT: Not that it matters much but somehow forgot to snap Inside Pitch and Star Wars Jedi Academy.

Lol I was always a little careless with my Xbox discs because they were ripped to my hard drive. That's why I have multiple copies of game like Counter Strike and Halo 2 which I had to use the disc for.

I would love to have them alphabetized (and did before I had kids). But it seems everytime I do it, the next day I come home from work, my kiddos have "reorganized" them for me. I tried to fight it forever, but eventually gave up and comprimised to keep the series together at least.

Anyway, I'm fairly proud of what I've built so far.

Don't let the teasing bother you lol.....

My girlfriend has a son who has a PS3 and whenever I buy "him" a game I take it out of the case and give her the disc from a collection of empty cases I have lmao. I have like 10 PS3 cases/manuals just lying in the trunk of my car for safe keeping.

I'm on board with the gaming room idea. I'm hoping I can do one in a year or two once I'm able to afford a bigger house. That way I can show off a lot of the promotional stuff and posters I've collected. Like my gigantic RE5 poster, and my 10 foot tall 28 weeks later cardboard movie standee. For now they sit in storage in the basement along with my retro gear.

they aren't all smart. but neither are the guys. though in general i've found girls are usually the dumber bunch we just don't say it to their faces because "hey you are an idiot lets have sex now" hasn't been a pick up line i've known to work.

You guys are doing it wrong. I had her read to me to study for our finals. (no joke) 8-)

We haven't had any collection pics in this thread in what feels like forever and I reorganized and condensed my collection onto one shelf so I figured I'd takes some pics and keep us back on track. I'm still in highschool so cut my collection some slack and sell me your college text books on the cheap. ;)



I like how you have things organized to fit anything and everything anywhere you can... it looks like a game of Tetris gone wrong!:lol:

It took me aback though thinking about what my collection was like back then. I found some pics in my Photobucket account. I think it was my first time posting pics of my collection... yours is way nicer than mine was. I believe this is in 2006, a year after I graduated high school.

Alright, giving this a shot. Sorry if the pictures are enormous. I put them in Spoiler Tags so that it doesn't take over the whole page.



Just a tip, if you tie up all of those loose wires from your TV/entertainment center/consoles, it'll look a lot better. For some reason, one thick bundle of wires looks better than all the wires scattered everywhere. But you might not be able to do it if there's no slack to work with.

its impossible to tie wires together. wires have their own mind and will in 2 seconds of being left alone tangle themselves. i give up on having untangled wires. even when i tie some together they manage to untie and bunch up.

On my wires, it seems like the minute I tie them, I have to untie them for some stupid reason. Also, they don't really bother me and I'm planning on eventually getting a small shelf to put on the entertainment center that will cover up the wires up to the tv. Eventually...

I've heard Atlantic shelves are gone down in quality so I look forward to hearing your impressions. Atlantic's shelves always had a solid reputation in the past but it seems like that's not the case anymore... especially because they use the same names but inferior quality material.

Well, I have it all filled up now and for the most part, I'm pleased. As far as I can tell, it seems pretty sturdy and the quality is similar to that of Sauder. I've never used an Atlantic shelving unit before, so I don't know if that's a downgrade or not. I can say, though, that I'm rather disappointed with how shallow the shelves are. They don't extend to be flush with the front of the unit, so everything hangs over the edge. And the entire unit itself is only just barely deep enough to fit a DVD. My games are probably going to get a lot more dust now, but at the same time, the space between each shelf will make them a lot easier to clean. Overall, I'm satisfied just because it's nice to look at a big tower full of games. All of my games, in fact. This is the first time I've ever had my whole collection in one spot.

I will be sure to post pictures later. I want to do it now, but I can barely keep my eyes open at the moment.


What messes with me is the fact that he keeps series in order (Fable, Gears, AC, etc.) but not the actual whole collection.

My system would probably bug a lot of people. Everything is in alphabetical order, but not 100%. For games that are in a series, I put them in chronological order...but only if they share the same series name. For example: the Ratchet & Clank games are together and in chronological order...but Secret Agent Clank is off with the other S games because it doesn't have "Ratchet & Clank" in the title. Also, I don't mix consoles, so the PS2 R&C games aren't with the PS3 R&C games.

And I have a slightly odd way of ordering the overall collection. Currently, they are grouped by platform in this order (left-to-right, top-to-bottom): Xbox 360, Xbox, Wii U, Wiii, Gamecube, PS3, PS2, PS1, Dreamcast, 3DS, DS, PSP, PC, N64, SNES, NES, Genesis, Atari 2600, GameBoy. And a few games are just sitting on top of others in random spots because I didn't like how they fit...

Those are the same issues Squarehard noted. Atlantic shelves, at one time, were much better than most other brands of consumer level shelving but the fact that you say their quality is similar to Sauder basically confirms they've fallen off.

I struggle with what to do about the game order...

Stuff like Call of Duty I can never decide, alphabetical order? Order by release date? Order by series (MW1-3, BO1-2) etc.?

Also stuff with "The" in the title....like are Oblivion/Skyrim in T together or separate in O/S? Thinking about it now I think it makes sense to put The games in T...lmao.

Standard practice is to alphabetize without the "The," such as
Darkness, The
Fallout 3
Last of Us, The
Lost
Saboteur, The
etc.

With Oblivion/Skyrim, the question is do you alphabetize by "Elder Scrolls" or the common name?

The beauty is that it's all your choice. It's your collection so you can do whatever works for you.

Cool Story Bros:
My college actually had 2 bookstores: One that was owned by the university and one that was independent. As you know (just like game trade ins) the price drops as they acquire more copies and eventually the bookstores stop taking them. People used to leave their 'worthless' books in crates to be recycled (as they were in a hurry to get out of town and back home). I would raid the crates, walk to the other independent bookstore (about 1/4 mile) and see if they were still taking the books. I only did it once (my final semester), but I made $180 on junk books and I even kept a couple of the marketing books for myself. 8-)


Hey, I did the same thing..... I also had 2 bookstores and on my last year, we had 3 bookstores (2 independents) to trade.

Game that start with "The" should totally NOT be under "T". That's just silly.

So, where do you guys put games/movies that start a number? Like, if its 6 do you put it under "S" or at the beginning after 5 and before 7?
