So I was looking for trade ins and I noticed Super Monkey Ball Banana blitz and Sonic and the secret rings both have a full color disc and a monotone disc variants. I wonder if the full color are more collectible, since they are probably the first runs of the games.

Y'all wanna see a dead body? No? Well then check out my backlog.

This is what happens when you're inspired by wiggy but don't have his craftsmanship. I decide to build a wall of shelves (actually two walls but this is the start) because the vast majority of my games were in boxes. 

 

Here's all my Xbox/360/One and Playstation/2/3/4 games with a lil' row of Dreamcast for good measure. A good amount of fat in my collection (at some point I thought buying Britney's Dance Beat was a good idea), but my goal is that my collection for these consoles won't expand beyond these shelves. Any new game I don't have space for will have to bump an existing game off. 

 

I still have a bunch of collector's editions that I'm working on a home for. I also am building shelves for my PC/Nintendo/handheld games.

I know this is a month old post but actually the monotone discs with Wii games are usually the first print and the color one's are the reprints.

I noticed something similar to that, with The legend of Zelda Twilight Princess (Wii). One had a flat color while, the other copy was shiny.

And all my other figures, CE boxes that are too big for storage bins, my systems in the boxes, spare periphals and other such stuff is stored away but I didnt feel like getting pics of them since most are in boxes or wrapped in garbage bags.

I think that might be the best amiibo display shelving I've seen yet.

Talking about me? Here is what I used for them. They normally run 60 bucks everywhere else that Id see. The top one has 17 in it, I could fit 18 if it werent for a couple being bigger than the others.

Here is a better pic of the shelf. They are nice for the price. Built well, the things in it that are meant to hold the bat easily slide right out, it has magnets on the door to keep it shut and has glass front and not plastic.

Yeah, that's a pretty neat alternate use for that case. I've got a ton of Assassin's Creed Mega Bloks figures that would probably look good in one of those.

Agreed! 

 

I haven't looked at all the pics yet, but from the ones I clicked very bice collection Novar. One thing I noticed that bothers my OCD. Your games didn't seem to have an order to them.

Indeed.

I'll probably has some updated pics sometime tomorrow.

One of my shelves got taller, although not sure how safe it's going to be during the next quake.

 

So far all of the previous quakes nothing has fallen over surprisingly, so I'm feeling good. *knocks on every piece of wood I can find*

This is a lot of photos.  So, I'm using the Spoiler tags.

Was working on updating my game inventory this weekend.  I live in an apartment, and the majority of my games are in storage.  :/ 

 

This is not 100%.  There were more consoles/games (Atari, handhelds, etc.) that I didn't cover.  I need to find them and gather them all up.

No gaming "swag" or anything in these either.  I didn't want to dig it all out and display.  (There's a lot of crap!)

 

Also, apartment life means no fancy shelves or game room for me.  Maybe someday, when we get our first house...

I like your collection. A lot. :drool: Dat Neo Geo.

 

All my Dreamcast games are burned. lmao. The only legit copies I have are Tony Hawk Pro Skater and Marvel Vs Capcom. Hardly any Dreamcast games where I'm around.

Nice collections guys... I need to doc my collection... normally do that around summer but this year's been a mess. So many issues with work & family (nothing serious, just busy).

I remember the day when my dad got us a Dreamcast. He came home with that and a disk binder full of burned Dreamcast games. :lol:

and to be even more fair, there is no chance in hell any of us will ever get through 20% of our collections.

 

Sad but probably true. :(

So I'm moving into a new house this weekend and my video game stuff will now be moving into a finished basement. It's pretty dry and we run a dehumidifier and have sump pumps to keep it that way, but I'm still concerned with getting some elevated water-resistant shelving options just to be extra safe. Does anyone have any good suggestions for stuff like that?

Nice collection Rig!  Do you want more of those plastic NES cases?  I have 3 or 4 of them I was about to get rid of.

I am definitely interested!

Found another box of my games. Also, my wife snagged a handful of complete NES games and a very good condition complete NES Action Set!

I don't know if you guys remember, but I posted a few months back about the best way to make more room. I ended up going with binders since I found a few at 70% off at target. I went from this (not everything obviously): 7771c78a7975cff10b198624c36b429e.jpg To this: 7164ba0b4265b93bf964f42a8dd7b291.jpg I kept the kids movies in cases to make it easy for the kids to pick what they want to watch. Although I'm thinking I'll create an album on the iPad for them and then I can put those in a binder too.

I've also used binders in the past but after so long the disc seem to pick up the residue from the sleeves and it leaves a trace on the disc.  I was also unable to clean them off and get rid of it.  To my experience it didn't affect the game being playable.  Just  giving a heads up on something to look out for.

That CD binder storage method is why there are lots of incomplete games nowadays.

Never was a fan.

Thanks for the heads up.  I'll check the discs every few months to make sure they're not being affected.
