    Burned, so burned. I thought something was fishy, but I gave you the benefit of the doubt.

    This is a clear violation of RPS forum rule #1. Not funny. Very uncool. Don't do it.

    Rather than posting a list, I uploaded three pictures here. Still missing so many essential releases...

    There was a big box version of Mark of Chaos? Why?!

    Nice collection you've got there.

    Like so many, I had to throw away many of my boxed copies as a youth for space reasons (those big boxes take up a lot of room!) including some treasures I now wish I'd kept (Baldur's Gate, Morrowind Collector's, etc.) However, I kept five, not for value but because I liked them: Torment, Longest Journey, Grim Fandango, Deus Ex, and Escape from Monkey Island (hey, I like the box art). Ended up being good choices!

    The entire Marathon trilogy box set. Discarded six months ago in a moment of madness.

    I currently have Lightspeed and the Wolfenstein 3D box that came with the hint book and Spear of Destiny.

    I can't say I'd like to have all the old boxes of the games I used to have, but goddamned if I wouldn't kill to still have those old manuals.

    I'm not much of a collector, but I do have a couple of my original old games still in their boxes which for some reason I can never seem to throw away.

    Jet Set Willy (ZX Spectrum)
    Alien, with the original exclusive graphic novel of the film (ZX Spectrum)
    Asteroids cartridge for the Dragon 32
    and a couple of ancient Oric games

    In case anyone is interested here is the Alien box... I seem to remember that this was one of the very first games which seemed to take the box art and contents seriously...

    Well... Actually, I got them bundled up in a physical anthology pack for cheap.

    Edit: this thread reminds me of those X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter CDs I got collecting dust in my shelves. I think I'll give them a go.

    I had quite a large collection for a long time, but like so many others I decided to chuck a lot out. I did keep some though.


    • Kept my Star Wars big boxes (X-Wing etc, even a force commander!).
    • Half-life series
    • Tomb Raider
    • Warcraft III collectors
    • Starcraft collectors
    • GTA 1
    • Discworld the game
    • UFO: Enemy Unknown

    I already used one "Mother Of God" in this thread... what's higher than that? We could go halves... or thousands.

    I love the eBay US 'Like/Want/Own' thing - 6 people 'own' one of those, apparently...

    Part of the reason I made this thread is because I have an interest in learning about older games and how they were made back in the day. I've scoured Youtube for various videos and found a lot of decent ones, but have only just discovered these. I highly recommend watching them if you have an interest.

    Here's my collection. Nothing impressive. Includes the very first big box game I bought (Heavy Gear 2) and the latest one (Thief 2). I have Arcanum on the way :)

    The jewel case above PS:T and Alpha Centauri is Fallout 2.
