@NEStalgia Haha, I know how you feel. Still got all my console boxes, my Bluray and even my DVD recorder box, my TV box, and so on. I probably won't for a long time, but I also always keep in mind that I may have to move all that stuff to another location some day, and I wouldn't want to have to wrap all of it in blankets or that weird, bubbly plastic...

@Nessjestic Yeah, I'd have to agree with @Delibheel there: HUGE red flag. People that would want a relationship with you, should accept you and your hobbies as they are. As long as it isn't getting out of hand, with literally the entire house looking like some kind of video gaming shrine, it should be okay.

Personally, I'm damn certain that any woman that wants to live with me and move in here, is going to accept my game collection, and if not, then she can walk right out of the same door that she came in through...

@Nessjestic Well, lesson learned, at least. Good thing it was "only" about having to throw away hobby-related things. Could have been worse. And good that it certainly didn't turn you off from gaming completely, which could also have happened.

@ThanosReXXX "As long as it isn't getting out of hand, with literally the entire house looking like some kind of video gaming shrine, it should be okay."

So, like, define "entire?"

@NEStalgia Well, as long as the diner, the kitchen and the bathroom are free of any video-game related paraphernalia, you'll still be within the margins of sanity...

@NEStalgia As long as artwork from instruction manuals aren't embroidered on the TP, I think it's ok.

We tossed most boxes after the warranty periods expired. Military family, moved around alot, didn't like boxes, haha.

@ThanosReXXX I mean....there's Super Mario cereal in the kitchen...and the collectors mug........I mean that's where it belongs! And I mean you can play Switch on the toilet, so it's not like the bathroom can stay free of all video game content. I think the laundry room doesn't have anything.....so I'm good, right?

@NEStalgia Yeah I still have my original cases. Leaving games out got you straight up cussed out (I was a boring little girl, my mom needed something to work with. ) Even the cardboard N64 ones. I use the Zelda ones as decorations so I endeavor to keep them nice. That being said, my N64 collection is my largest second hand collection so I will be buying repro cases next year. I still have 2/3rds of my stuff in storage though so things may have gotten damaged/ crushed by now. Ill take inventory next year. There may be tears lol.

Except sega saturn games. All mine are second hand and geez SEGA diid worse than the N64 for bad choices in cases. So many repro cases to buy.

@ThanosReXXX um now that kingdom hearts 3 is a thing does my Buzz Lightyear soap dish and Woody toothbrush holder count? Yes, I swear I am 33.

@NEStalgia Well... look at all the reactions that this comment of mine has sparked...
As for Switch on the toilet, that's only temporary, although I would never do that. Heck, I don't even read on the toilet, and I flush with the lid closed. Haven't you ever seen that episode of The Doctors, where they discuss poo bacteria and molecules? All of them floating around, and being tossed into the air as you flush, meaning that the Switch will be covered in them, if you have it in there...
For me, that's a typical example of never in a million years, my friend. Never.

What I was actually talking about, and have actually seen once, is a toilet wallpapered with Nintendo posters, bedrooms for adults with glass cabinets with statuettes, controllers and other peripherals, and even Nintendo IP-themed sheets.

@ThanosReXXX Doesn't @rjejr have FF girls on his bathroom clock? Or was that a joke and it was just generic mermaids? I can' never keep these things straight.

@Ryu_Niiyama I fear for my NES boxes (and carts) that were put into an attic long ago....and I know critters have been up there.....I can NOT get myself to ever see what condition the carts are in.

NEStalgia

AlohaPizzaJack

@NEStalgia Nah, I didn't see any critters up there. Of course, that was last week.

@NEStalgia I've no idea. Must have missed that conversation...

@NEStalgia No, I didn't. And besides, anytime I see someone mention Final Fantasy, I just faze out and return to my own bubble, where that over-bloated series doesn't exist anymore...

I threw out most of my N64 and Gameboy boxes. I barely even regret it either, they're unnecessarily big, hard to open without damaging the flap, and not even good for storing the games. Even back when I still had them, we just put all the games into a shoebox. And the few that I still have are just sitting in a closet somewhere separated from the actual game.

But for disc based systems/systems like DS that had actually decent cases, I kept all of them. I also still have the boxes for the majority of my systems (excluding secondhand ones).

In terms of toys/other video game merch, I just don't see the point. I have some old Mario McDonald's toys from back when SMB3 came out, and I always ask myself "Why do I even have these?" whenever I see them.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

@NEStalgia
I NEVER throw away any game boxes.
They are hidden treasures for me, the rare things like from other planet.
I arrange my game boxes tidily based on their categories.

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (99)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

The only game that's from another planet is Seaman. That's some straight up alien nonsense!

Octane

ThanosReXXX

@Octane Haha, yeah. The first time I played that, I literally had NO idea what I was about to experience.
And yet, it was strangely compelling, so I kinda binge-played it for quite a while. Also of course because of the tamagotchi-like features of the game. Wouldn't want to have let my little baby fish-human die...

I actively tried to kill my Seaman. “Insult me, will you? Thou shall not tempt thy Player, manfish!”

I think I still have a Tonooki Mario missing the spring somewhere. It’s like that animated short “The Cat Came Back”.
