I remember Tom asking this in a previous post. For me, I store my complete games in a large box and my cart only games, I store in a shoe box. Both of which I put under my bed.IMG_1473.JPGImage Enlarger

I looked around the internet and found these setups:

How do you guys store your games?

Ow yes indeed! Almost forgot to ask about this. Glad you started this topic.
You like the cartboard boxes or are you looking for other way’s to store the games? You also, use the box the game came in to store the game? I wonder if it will see any wear if you open the box several times again and again…
I store my games in a black softcase from nintendo. It holds 12 cartridges and I can put four on top of those 12 so a total of 16 cartridges. I do want another case like that but I can’t find any of them on the net. I don’t know how to add a image to this post I just made with my phone. That would explain a lot what I’m talking about.

Can you get the picture off your phone into your computer? If so, you can use the upload attachment button to post images onto the forums.

 

Or if your just using your phone for internet, try using the upload attachments button when making a post to see if the image can be taken straight from the phone into a post.

For my cart only games i use a shoe box, some are in a drawer. My boxed games have accumulated in number over the last few years. Most are stored in an old cooler we used to take on holiday when I was younger. It currently holds 49 complete sfc games though when I first started collecting snes games again it held about only 6 loose carts along with my gamecube and megadrive stuff! It’s strange really, I noticed it filling up but never really took stock of the amount of stuff Ive acquired for the snes. Ive got Pal & US completes in a single drawer of my desk and I have another 40 or so complete sfc games in a cupboard, id like to get another of those coolers, they are lightweight and don’t take up that much space whilst providing almost bulletproof protection.

Here’s a diagram of the exact one i use, http://cdn.sulitstatic.com/ima….._5236a.jpg

The bottom holds 36 and top compartment holds 13 complete games respectively.

TI’ll try to upload the image tomorrow. Can’t see the upload button when I type a rwtfeply. I’ll make it work!
That cooler looks really handy by the way. And can hold a great amount of games(!) I like those old snes cases nintendo made. They only hold about 10 games but they look so great. The Donkey Kong Country version is very nice. If I get the picture posting fixed I’ll include that one too!

I use wood cabinets.  One for games, and one for SNES reading materials.  My Entertainment center houses my system and peripherals.

I’m fine with the setup I have now. When I’m playing with one of the complete games, I carefully take the game out the box and keep it out until I’ve beaten the game or otherwise done with it for awhile. This way not too much wear occurs on the box.

When I purchase my own home, my setup will change completely. I will have a man cave dedicated to my games and will have a more sophisticated storage system then.

A,”man cave” :) Every man’s dream! How many games have you to take with you when you move? I see my “collection” is expanding allready and have to find a way to store them nicely.
What do you guy’s think about those game cases they make for the snes games? You can find them on ebay. They have the design of a vhs video case and hold the game nicely and some are sold complete with printed artwork of the original snes game boxes. I still haven’t had time to upload the images via my computer I will see if I get the chance tomorrow. I think the cases are really nice. They are practicle and very clean. Only downside would be they take some more room for storage and the high price tag for each (complete) case. Today I found old vhs cases in the garage and I’m thinking of using these for game cases. Will have to think of something to make the games sit tight in the case since the case is bigger than the cartridge. And will have to make the cover prints myself but that would be fairly easy. If only I can find something to make the games stick in the cases…any idea’s??

Do you mean these Tom:

I don’t like the cases only because if you have a manual, it won’t fit in too good. These cases will bend and wrinkle your manual if it is in the case with the game.

I use similar cases b/c most of my collection is cart-only (I tend to only get my absolute favorites box-only!)  I now try to buy more CIB now that I am no longer a starving College student LoL!!

 

That said, I have a separate cabinet for manuals, guides, and SNES related books becuase tose cases Do really mess up your manuals.

 

Having an SNES room is one of the coolest things you can do!  FOr extra Nostalgia my room uses the same TV I played on in my families fromt room while growing up.  I had it restoerd and couldnt evre see usinglaugh anything else!

I just chuck all of em’ in a shoebox and be done with it (except for Uniracers, it’s somewhere else). The boxes and manuals are in another box.

That is a nice looking storage device you’ve got there Greg! I’m sure it looks wonderful in your room. I see labels on the cartridges. Do you label all your games yourself?

Looks almost like a kiosk storage device. Mine will have to manage with a regular cardboard box i think. I dont have many unboxed games anyway. With the games i purchased a few days ago they number less than 10. then again so do my boxed ones i think!

I keep them in a TV cabinet that sits under my TV in my room.  My grandmother had it when I was growing up and she gave it to me when she got a TV that didn’t fit it.  I don’t have a huge collection of games, so I can fit my NES, SNES, N64, and Wii games in it, as well as my N64 console and accessories from all of these systems.

Currently looking for the following SNES games:

Chrono Trigger

EarthBound

Final Fantasy II (Final Fantasy IV)

Secret of Mana

Illusion of Gaia

Super Castlevania IV

Super Mario RPG

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

 Zombies Ate My Neighbors

TMNT IV

Contra III

I thought I’d revive this old topic.. Perhaps some of you guys have a new way to store your games?

Here’s how I store mine:

IMG_20141019_135041.jpgImage Enlarger

 About 3 of my most recent SNES/Genesis purchases aren’t on the picture because they were sitting next to/in my systems. I guess I almost only store recent generation gaming stuff here and 16-bit games.

I have 2 cardboard SNES boxes in a drawer with a few PS1 games and I store my 30’ish N64 games in some 20-years old cardboard boxes with pictures of motorcycles printed on them (that’s the dream..).

My setup hasn’t changed. When the time is right, I’ll probably get a bunch of bookcases and display cases to store my video games unless another method catches my attention before then.
