I'm looking around for a display case or some nice glass shelving to keep all my 360 games, collectors cases, figures and assorted gaming crap in. lol I've been looking for awhile now and i'm seeing some damn nice cabinets and things that are available.

Please post up pictures of your collection if you have some! Maybe it will motivate others to get rid of the milk crate they keep their games in. :p

Just wondering what other people might have setup to keep games in!

I'm not looking for a list of what games you have, I want to see pictures of how people are storing the games.
That collection thread has about 5 picture posts in it (out of like 9 pages, if I remember right) and the rest is just a bunch of lists.

I've got a shitty little book shelf looking thing and I'm running out of room. I'm redoing my whole room though, so soon it won't look so shitty.

I keep my games in a Game rack but I am thinking of moving all my games to the downstairs display cabinet because I have moved my 360 downstairs because of the 37" HD ready t.v :).

This is my newest pic, just added Viva Pinata PC to my collection so will be installing that in a bit. Notice i now need a new shelve/sell some games as i have no more space. :eek:

EDIT: This is just my PAL 360 and Wii games, i have more upstairs.

I wish I could do something like that, but I just have them in a 5 pair of gaming rack.

I store them in my drywall. When I'm done playing at the moment, I throw them at the wall and they stick. Then when I need to play it again, it's always there!

Nice man, very nice. That's more like what i'm looking at doing, but I think I want sliding glass doors and maybe some lighting. ;)
Lets see more pics folks! Some of you must have some badass show cases. lol

edit: When I say man, I mean dude. Or chick-dude. Or something.

I just put mine in a plastic hamper, as i only use a couple the rest would just get in the way.

I wish i had more space for my stuff though.

My games are up in the right corner. So I guess I don't keep them in anything but on top of my movie case. Really, I just started running out of room on this so I put them on top. And don't laugh at me for the Friends boxset! :p

I keep mine on a pretty cool-looking shelf that I picked up for wicked cheap at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. It was on sale during the holidays for like $20 (US), and it's large enough for my 360 games, Wii games, Gamecube games, PSP games, DS games, and all my DVDs.

And yes. I'm well aware that I have way too many systems. :P

kantizuni
09-16-2008, 07:00 AM
FoxRacing, I used to have that EXACT same shelving unit! Mine was packed full of DVDs too. *laughs* I ended up getting rid of it because it took up way too much space. :D

Why do you have three copies of Halo 3?

Dude theres 2 Halo 3 and 1 Halo 2 with a custom 360 cover :eek: Reason being you may have noticed i have more than one 360 therefore i can play Halo 3 with my girlfriend without having to play that shitty split screen crap. :p

@ JC - Cheers bro, more to come :)

OK here is my dvds aswell and yes i know this parts a mess as many of you know i have a little girl and a baby on the way so i put stuff high up on the shelves so that cant get at it, so hence the messiness. :p Anyway i have around 400 'original' DVD's, just sold 40 shit ones on eBay.

Hahaha man dont worry Friends is a good show.

I just keep all my games next to my dvd collection in a fairly shoddy ikea cupboard.

And here is the TV I play on. My bro was just about to play LOTR on original XBOX when I took this. To the left is my accessories in the basket and to the right is my XBOX.

I have like a mad desk which has enough room for my laptop, work and then a special stand for the tv.

Then on the side attached to it is a dvd rack where i keep all my games.:woop:

Most of my game discs for all my disc-based systems are in CD books, save for some limited/collector's edition stuff that I keep the cases for on display, or cases like the ones from the .hack games for PS2 that form little images if you line them up. Well, that and I'm a huge .hack whore.

Said collector's stuff is mingled in with my DVDs and other shelved items, or in special cases like Halo 3 Legendary, on display on its own.

lol, I did, but now I need that space for my school books, so I use my CD racks. I'll post a pic as soon as I can.

*edit* I wish I could et a cheap bookcase or something for my games, I'll check eBay.

I keep mine in a big wallet. It has all my console games in it. I find it easier to find games and it stops me putting CoD4 in the Halo 3 box xD.

Lol!

Anyway i have some small trolleys in my room where i keep my 360 games (i have some more in a chest somewhere else in my house). They are pretty shit because they keep collapsing but at least i know where they are.

Wow I'm jealous of all these pictures D: My game setup is pretty much this:
My xbox is ontop of a wooden chair and I have my games on the floor under the chair.

Strewn across the floor. That way you have the enjoyment of trying to find a game when you want it. None of that organised crap for me!

98% are put into slimline cases for practicality.
