I always put my games in drawers like this. More compact, less likely to get fucked up if something falls over or something, potentially less damage from light/humidity/elements. If I have any original boxes I keep them in a Tupperware container or something. You couldn't even tell I had a huge retro collection without opening them.

Nowadays I have no room for collecting anything, and all the PC games I did get, I just scooped them into a black trash bag and dumped them at Goodwill. Ironic considering that's where I found most of them.

They make cheap shampooers for that, now. Cleaning it used to be a royal bitch, though, true. Walking around barefoot on carpet is much more comfortable than doing the same on hard flooring with all that shit sticking into your feet as you happen to randomly step on it.
>Imagine having several thousand dollars worth of videogame equipement and not having a properly working heating system in your house/appartement.
Being obsessed with coomlecting is retarded, end of story. But some rooms get colder than others (such as mine), and if you have more than one person living in the house besides yourself, you'll (sadly) learn that you can't just set the temp to whatever you personally want.

When I got into collecting I bought the games I knew I'd enjoy (mario, zelda, the list goes on) because I used to emulate back in the day. I do my research before I buy a game and if it seems like something I'd enjoy, 90% of the time I'll endy up like it after I buy. If I'm extra unsure I emulate the game for a little bit almost as if I'm "renting" it, and then I'll see if its worth buying.

I've been doing this for a few years now. I do a lot of research about games and consoles before I even consider buying them. There's a great retro experience to be had even now if you just do a bit of research.

There's something to be said for owning a boxed copy of a game, as it's usually a rare item. But that really could just be any game in a box. It could be garbage and at that point, do you enjoy collecting games or just expensive trash?
I'll never have respect for these numales that buy shit they don't like or will never play just because of the price tag.

>> No.7047859

It's a nice collection but I can only imagine having that much stuff can only be a burden in the end. More stuff means more stuff to worry about. I like having physical copies of some of my favorite games on display almost like as throphies, but having every single game ever sounds like it's going to be trouble at some point. Moving already sucks so imagine having to move around thousand games, most of which you don't even play or care about but only have for your collection.

That sounds like alot of work just to get get a few PS1 and Wii games. I'd rather just get a part time job on the side than start a picking operation.

All of the games I want I "can" afford I just wish I didn't need to pay so much. The people in these Reddit rooms must be millionaires.

Agreed. If you just have every game you might as well have no games.

These are probably my next 2 been in the mood for an arcade shooter recently.

Yeah, but if you emulate and don't spend money on those games, you save both money and space, so you'd actually have more money. Your argument really falls flat 2bh.

>> No.7048503

Owning large numbers of games you'll never play again is retarded. I've ditched every game for the PS2 and 360 that I know I'll never touch, and only hold on to crappy SNES games because I have some nostalgia to childhood shovelware. My visible game display is limited to one shelf, which looks quite nice, with loose carts and extra consoles boxed up in a closet.

Never got this. What do you fill your house with so much that you don't have space for at least 50 cases? I don't collect, but I live in a small space, got 5 CRTs, a 55" LCD and space for thousands of cases.

Yep. I have enough shovelware shitting up my PS1 collection from a kid. It's not worth selling but I couldn't imagine buying random shit games to have a fullset. I have 2 Rugrats PS1 games, I don't really care about the other 2. I'd rather buy games I'd play.

Scotts collection is the definition of 'collecting for the sake of collecting'

If i remember right, he even owns a few 32x games but doesnt even own a 32x. he also tosses his games around all the time, and everytime you see his collection, its like 60% shovelware
