I have over 300 games in my collection and have every box unless it came just in a jewel case. I have flattened all of them except the ones that could not be flattened. I have a special box for those. Thank God games don't come in boxes that you cant break down anymore. Anyway they are all in a total of 10 big storage boxes.

Guess I shouldn't tell you that I'm in the process of throwing out about about 50 games boxes, huh?

Don't worry Core - they'll go fast and without much pain laugh

I suppose it is pretty obvious why everyboy is complaining about how hard games are to find boxed... Because they throw out the boxes! eek

I was hesitating, but I'm now convinced. I'm going to bring my game boxes into my bedroom and put myself in storage.

Ooh What game boxes are you throwing away? I want some too. <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" /> Please Syd - let us have your trash - please laugh

Becky,

Now that's a great idea. People may laugh - but when they see our awesome boxes and in such pristine shape - that'll wipe that smirk right off their faces!

Well, while we're on the topic, the only boxes I've ever kept are the Myst, Riven, and Exile boxes. The only one I don't have is the RealMyst box so if anyone is willing to part - please let me know. Thanks

I just found Lost Secret of the Rainforest last week and the box had been cut up, the front and back panels carefully clipped out and along with the contents of the game, all dumped in a ziplock bag. The good news was the pretty rare clue book was included.

Myself, I would no more throw away a game box than I would a vinyl lp album cover. It's part of the art product. The people who write, create, develop, sell and distribute these things lavish a lot of time, energy and money on the packaging... Some of my best friend work in product packaging. :-)

Well... I think that I'm just the sort of person who would obsessively hoard the boxes if I could. Thing is, I live in a pretty small flat, and there's just no more room to store anything. So, a while ago, I took all my games (I don't even have that many) out of their boxes and threw the boxes away. I had to steel myself to do it, but I did it. And that meant I could buy more games to fit on the extra shelf space!

I don't like doing it, though. So I actually like it when a game only comes in a small jewel case, or when the jewel case is in a box that's no bigger than the case (like Nancy Drew). Then, I get to keep the box and still have room on the shelf. I really don't like it when a game comes in a huge, half-empty, pretty box.
