What do you usually do with your game boxes? Other than boxes used to keep discs.

I keep my PC game boxes generally, unless I run out of shelf space and they're boxes for games I don't particularly care for.

I hold onto all of them. I still have a bunch of SNES and GBC ones sitting in a box in the closet.

Show 'em in a drawer somewhere. Wouldn't dream of throwin away my precious SNES and N64 boxes. I left them at my parents house so they probably put them up in the attic by now, though.

i would recycle em but throwing them in the garbage is more environmentally sound around here

Usually keep them if Its a cover I really like, sometimes I lose them.

I save my boxes if I still have the games. If I get rid of the game I throw the box away.

I burn everything I own.

I used to decorate my walls with GBA and N64 boxes, but I eventually decided to stop being as much of a consumer whore. I keep the plastic cases since I generally sell them back or keep them on the shelf, but I don't have any cardboard boxes anymore.

My entire room has been constructed using game boxes for games that I own. My computer is currently sitting on a neatly designed stack of Playstation cases.

And look, my bed! All Nintendo and Super Nintendo boxes. Stuffed with things to make them not crush, of course.

Yep. I'm not much of a pack-rat, I'm just to lazy to throw my things away. FFV box is right next to my bed in a pile with all the contents inside, and at my mom's house I still have the original Mario paint box and the mouse pad too. =D

That game by Star Wars Bounty Hunter is God of War, i turned the cover inside-out to turn it into that really cool picture of kratos fighting a minotaur ^_^ I dont have many games cuz mostly i'll just buy used and then trade in when i'm done for something else. Dont know where my box for The Minish Cap went...

FFX, XII, IX, Chronicles, Tactics, Anthology and Tactics Advance ^_^

I keep all mine. They're on a sehlf, under the DVD'S. Plus, games are worth less if you don't have the box to go with it. So, if you want to sell any, you're more likely to get a better price.

some in a CD rack, some in a small drawer, and some on my desk.

they're stacked in the corner of a bookshelf (which has like 5% books).

I keep them displayed on a shelf.

I keep some in a wardrobe, others in a spare room at home. I'm so happy most games now come in those dvd type cases instead of all that crappy packaging for a manual and a tiny jewel case.

The cases are all on my media shelf, along with DVD movies, music CDs and a few cassettes. I keep the game discs, manuals and any other accessories in the original cases, I wouldn't dream of separating them for fear of losing one or the other.

I throw most of 'em out, unless I like it for some reason. I cut out the cover of my Golden Sun box 'cause I liked the picture, I kept the boxes (intact) for KH:COM (shiny!) Castlevania, Castlevania COTM, Metroid, FFIV, and FFI&II (DOS). They're all in a box in my dresser. But seeing as how many of you keep the boxes, methinks I will keep them all too.

Since they brought in DVD cases I never throw them out. I still have a few of my old school games with full packaging (including Final Fantasy 8 and Magic Carpet 2 :cool:).

12-14-2006, 12:46 PM
Well all the DVD cases yeah who wouldn't keep those...But the GBA games and such with the cardboard packaging, well I used to keep them..Then I had a girlfriend over and she went to look for a *somethin" somethin'* so we could *somthin' somthin'* when she discovered my collection of old game boxes...Let's just say questions were asked and *somethin' somethin'* didn't happen that night....

To this day all old boxes are destroyed as soon as the I open the game...

I'll have to take a pic when I get home, but my stuff is really all over the place. I tried organizing my stuff onto a rack... but it didn't quite work out.

Rotoooo what lovely games you have :O :heart:

I keep all of them, and even like the cardboard thing my gamecube was wrapped in hehe, I store some under the bed but ds/megadrive/etc are just on the shelf. I loves bockses.

I tend to lose all of the original casing (assuming it isn't a disc) within a few days, regardless if I want to keep it or not.

I keep all of my game cases, and i've managed to 'arrange' some of them onto a rack. however, there are dozens of other boxes and stuff scattered around my room.


edit: pic way too big to post here
