Oh Dear.
I must be sad....all the King's quest and Broken Swords and Riven and Rama and Curse of Monkey Island on the Comp...playing at least 3 of them in tandam....And, I sit here reading about saving Game Box's, Thinks !! do I buy the Games because I like the Box's ?
Nah !
Me I would consider it sacrilage sp. to destroy or throw away a Box...all mine are stored in a spare Bedroom with a great big Ingersol padlock on the door...nobody's going to get at mine.

I don't. There's nowhere to put your notes when you've finished the game. I like to keep everything about the game in the box.

Ladybug, we have medicine for that.

Actually, I'll try it first and if I empty my boxes of game boxes (with games if played, without if not) I'll let you know.

I guess this is genetic, I have boxes in the attic filled with my grown, married, moved-out son's old Japanese anime models unbuilt and in boxes. His wife will NOT let me bring them to their house. How uncivil.

lol

It's not so much the boxes that I want to save but the original packaging. I prefer the DVD style case (for space reasons) but only if that's the original packaging. For some twisted reason I want the game complete. Well, there is one reason...the games are easier to find in their boxes than looking at the tiny print on the side of a jewel case. At my age, that is smile

Shorah smile

I only save my favourite game boxes, or especially pretty ones. I have a magazine holder full of them, flattened. Every so often I put change which one is at the end so I can see the art.

Maybe I should start a adventure game themed restaurant one day so I'd have a good excuse to show 'em all off lol

Anybody here ever pin boxes to the wall for decoration?

I've avoided this topic until now since I still have nightmares about ripping open the boxes of some now, rare, classics and tossing them. Really needed to attend BAAGS 101 before I ever bought a game. Oh well.

Actually if the games comes in a box not yet opened you can just leave it like that if you throw it away you will throw away the game too. laugh
