Me too, but they were the least of my concerns when I moved out when I was 20.

But even if I had them, I certainly wouldn't keep the games in the actual boxes. It just makes zero sense at all. Unless you want to display them and never actually play the games. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to display the actual boxes. I just wouldn't have the games in them.

that's what i do

I have a friend who bought all his games as boxed versions, stepped out of the store, ripped the box open, took the cd/dvd and put the rest into the next trashbin. I was horrified

I never imagined "collecting" any of this when I was 15yrs old and getting these games for christmas/birthdays...but I could never bear to throw any of the stuff out.

But as someone who actually plays the games AND being a collector...pulling the game out of the box every time I want to play it and risk tearing up the box? Hell no, not to mention just a pain in the ass over walking across the room and pulling it off the shelf.

That's what I always did for my console and big box PC games. I never kept the boxes, just never valued them at all. Figured its cardboard and not meant to be saved. Growing up in a family of five sharing everything with two younger brothers I knew it would have been futile trying to keep cardboard in good condition anyways. Maybe if I was an only child would have been a different story. I lost so much over the years though because my brothers and I just tore through everything, and lived in a small 4 room urban city apartment.

But yeah any games that came in a hard case, like Sega or disc based games with CD/DVD cases I would of course keep. We were a bit older by that point anyways.

I had kept all my boxes until the 90's sometime and then tossed them out Why would it be worth keeping this cardboard I figured.

And that is the secret to investment collecting.

Find what people think is garbage now, and hold onto it. Decades later it might be worth some $.

Some new additions for NES: Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers, Master Blaster, and Adventures of Lolo.

Decided Contra would be the first game I play to start beating some of them, and beat it tonight. It's a lot easier than I remember, and was the first time I played it since around 9 or 10yrs old. I had maybe 2-3hrs into it tops, and pretty much remembered where everything was and was making it to levels 5 and 6 without dying once. I remember it being so dang hard. Guess my pattern recognition skills have improved a little since then.

Cool games.

Yeah Contra was a tough game as a kid, until the Konami code became a thing. Got lots of practice on all the levels with 30 lives, so after a while I got so good I could beat the game with no deaths. Still can, and now I always try to do it as fast as possible. Its like a 20 minute romp through whenever I'm feeling like blasting 8-bit aliens. Must have beat it over 100 times.

Blaster Master is a great game too, but really tough on the NES with no save or password system. You essentially need to beat the game in one sitting, and it can get hard. I much rather play the game on emulator with save states. Less hardcore but more enjoyable.

Awesome, I hear a lot of good things about Blaster Master so decided to give it a shot. It's on the vast majority of the top NES games list I've looked over and I just remember seeing a lot of ads for it when I was a kid.

Got my first reproduction game today. Final Fantasy II with English translation. Checked it out briefly, just the starting sequence of the story where you get full control and can explore. Seems decent, and the English translation is perfect so far.

Bought it firsthand straight from OCDreproductions. I did some searching online to vet them out a bit and it seemed legit. Price was a bit high to me, but I didn't see a good alternative for this kind of option.

You dug up some relics there man, awesome!

Have to say, discovering your actual owned stuff from childhood is far better than re-buying it. Feels so good like a warm blanket.

No surprise here. All the older cartridge based stuff will probably outlive us. Very simple tech that was built like a tank. As long as everything is clean, and capacitors are good.

Nice!! That's awesome. I've been trying to do the same from my parents in the house I grew up in. I grabbed all the games a long time ago, and now just trying to get all the boxes and strategy guides I kept when I was little. I'll get them some day.

Yeah, no kidding. I have no doubt most of this stuff will be around longer than us.

Default funny to see what people throw away

Some findings





And yes, all of them are complete and fully functional. The box of the steering wheel is in bad shape, no wonder, it sat on the street for 2 days

Nearly finished with the Nintendo shelves. Just need to make up a few more backstops to stick on the shelves to keep the games straight and organized. Then also hang a couple brackets for the bottom shelf.

The Nintendo side of my game collection looks tiny when it's all out on the shelves. Plenty of room to grow! Second shelf is for more NES, 4th shelf is for more SNES. My favorites. I don't think I'll grow past a single shelf for N64, and I made that one tall enough to display as is, or lay the games on the sides so the labels face out like all the others. Will also be ordering the top labels soon. Intention was to have Gamecube on its own shelf, with Wii/WiiU/Switch on the bottom shelf. We'll see.

Might put some Nintendo figures or something on top, don't know yet. I really wanted to display the console systems themselves. So...maybe I'll get longer brackets/deeper shelves for the bottom and do that. I was also thinking about making LED lights somehow to light up the labels, but I'm not sure how to do that just yet without it looking all funky since the games are set up to the ege of the shelf.

Any thoughts or advice?

I don't really have any suggestions, looks good! Will definitely look sweet if you can fill them someday.

Only advice i ever really give about game shelves is try to estimate your needed future space for your planned collection as well as you can, or just have enough free wall space to expand. I know you are not a huge collector but you never know. When i started getting serious into collecting and hitting garage sales and thrift stores a lot i quickly amassed more games than i had shelving for and had to rethink it.

Courtesy of the previous home owners. This was a 2nd spare bedroom that I rarely used or had guests that's now my office. I just haven't bothered with swapping it around yet.

ain't looking bad, but as open as it is it will collect dust like mad.

So I've been waiting for the Super NT Analogue to become available for 8mo to a year now. I'm not confident they'll ever be in stock.

Any of you guys run into another FPGA based SNES console that runs 720P or 1080P?

The only other one I've come across so far is the open source MiSTer, but it doesn't appear to do any higher resolution stuff and takes a bit of tweaking to get it to work. Not really interested in something like that though either.

Just looking to see what else might be out there that I've missed.

I was only ever aware of Analogue's products as being good quality FPGA based. Which is probably why they are constantly out of stock. But they really are the best company for quality SNES HD retro gaming.
