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

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

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.

for now, it's nothing much but I plan to get the Diablo battlechest, Thief II and Prey in there.
Edit: aww, heck. I forgot about Deus Ex
