    That's too excessive for me, definitely. Your call.

    But... it's Planescape...
    - If the sound of Samuel Barber's "Adagio For Strings" makes you think of Kharak burning instead of the Vietnamese jungle, most of your youth happened during the 90s. -

    There is a guy who sells them on UK Ebay and has more than 10 available at 25 ($38 US). From that I'm guessing $190 is a bit of a rip off.

    The one for $190 (or less, depending on shipping costs) is the larger 1999 GOTY box, but that price difference... I think I will pick one up from that guy who linked to instead.

    Got Jagged Alliance 2 (which is incredible), No One Lives Forever 2 (quickly becoming my favorite FPS franchise), and a sealed copy of Baldur's Gate 2 Throne of Bhaal.

    One thing I do have a lot of is old game manuals in pretty good condition. I have a box full of them with some game cd cases.

    I do miss the art, style and writing that was put into manuals. XCom had the one entire booklet that I remember reading over and over again with journals from a soldier and new sightings of UFOs. Fallout is ring bound. Strategy game research trees. Maps, oh the maps. And the keyboard layout sheets.

    I threw away most of my big boxes years ago, didn't have a lot though (about 10 or so, I think). Kept the boxes for two of my favorites - Dungeon Keeper and Age of Wonders.

    Hasn't been an update here in a long time. I've gotten pretty luck over the past month. Picked up Temple Of Elemental Evil, a sealed copy of Theme Hospital for $0.99, Desperados, a sealed copy of Legacy of Kain Soul Reaver for $10, and my roommate found a sealed copy of the Unreal Anthology at my University's IT department and picked it up for me.

    There finally was another decent street market in my area today - picked up Caesar 3, Myst: Exile, Age Of Empires and the massive Aces Over Europe box for 10 quid total.

    On a related note, I will be in London next weekend. Any good retro game shops I should be aware of? I have seen the Retro Game Base website, but they seem to be all console and no PC/Amiga.

    I regret nothing!

    (sorta counts if you consider 8 years 'old')

    I found a few deals in a Chinese game shop that's selling battlechests of both Warcraft III and Starcraft at a less than half the price in about $23. Possibly 5 years old judging from the last time I bought my Diablo Batttlechest there. Meanwhile, X-Men Legends 2 is at $10...

    I'm much more prone to it on the console side of things in terms of going out and looking for retro stuff now. PC not so much since I'm finding I have to jump through a lot more hoops to get the games up and running. I've been banging my head against the wall for a while now trying to get the first NOLF to run, and am about ready to toss in the towel. One of these days if I ever have the space I'd like to just put together a PC with older hardware since I never throw out my old equipment. Just make a Win98 or XP system and play a bunch of old games on it. =)

    For now, I'm content getting old games via GOG.

    This thread made my heart twinge a little.. At one time I had about 150 boxed games in one manner or another but after many many moves I realized that it was a lot easier to move a stack of cd's and a box of critical manuals than all the game boxes.. Always dreamed that I'd have a big, game store style wall to display them on one day.. Ah well... and then Steam came along.

    I've got almost all my old PC games' boxes still, but though I am not quite a collector, just a hoarder of old boxes, the pride of my collection is something uncommon and delightfully stupid indeed, boxed exemplars of all the Mirage Fighting games and their variants:

    That's right, the legendarily not-good Rise of the Robots and collector edition, Rise 2 and both the german and UK collector editions, and the little known third game of the series, Theatre of Pain (which I might add has a delightfully ridiculous box)!

    The sealed Mac versions of Loom and DotT pop up on eBay every now and then, but at ridiculous prices.
