So,
Lately I've been looking at GBA Games, more specifically, cases to display them in. I hate to have to just keep bare cartridges, and the boxes are fragile and hard to find. Until I saw something where people can keep them in DS cases, since they have a GBA slot. Are there any cases that can hold NES, SNES, or N64 cartridges?

Really? Just to Clarify, I ain't talking about the actual boxes, I'm talking about custom made plastic cases to put them in.

They're not custom made in terms of what cartridge it will hold, it has multiple sets of angles inside the case to hold most different cartridges. Check out http://www.retrogamecases.com . They'll even make one for you if your game isn't available.

What @thesexyogo was referring to are plastic shell cases you can buy that have custom made inserts, with the design of the insert typically based upon the game's box art. They are actually very reminiscent of the kind of hard-plastic boxes that Genesis games came in (or, if you're old enough to remember, the kind of clear cases that VHS tapes would be in when you rented them from the local video store).

"vintage" Nintendo branded game cases also exist for NES, SNES and N64 cartridges (and manual) . I've got about 40 NES cases i picked up over the years. they were always quite expensive so most people never bought them.

That website @Kodeen was talking about charges ~$10 a case. You can order the cases themselves here ($60 a carton of 100, so you're essentially saving ~$40) and print out covers from http://www.thecoverproject.net/. The cases hold SNES carts, N64 carts, Genesis carts, and even those jewel CD cases, but you will have to modify them to fit NES games. I'm pretty sure instructions for that exist on The Cover Project's Forums somewhere.

I'm pretty okay.
