After a while what do you do to manage your collection?

I put the games I'm playing near my 360(sorted into racing and not racing) and the rest on a dvd rack against the wall.

i sell what i dont play anymore. i've saved all my previous gens games and systems since the nes days and i rarely dig them out and set them up to play anymore. Now I sell my games so someone else can enjoy them instead of me hording them. I just ask myself would i play this 10 years from now and only a handful from this gen have i believed the answer was yes to that question. I save my classic gen stuff so my kids can have a chance to experience them, but if i didn't have kids i'd probably sell that stuff to. I dont see the point in having stuff that im not going to every use or play again just to say I own them.
after I leave here I'm gettin a memory enema

I have an elaborate rope & pulley system. All the games acre clipped onto the rope via clothes pegs.
Simply pull the ropes and they all go past, pick the one off I want, clip back on when done.

This. I only allow my self so much room on a DVD rack. One row for PS3 games and two rows for Xbox games. Once I start running out of room, I trade in the games I know I'll likely never play again.

I start to trade games in if my collection gets too big.
I don't like having a big collection, unless it is a collection of a series.
If I have a bunch of games that are all different then I decide which ones i want and which ones I won't miss. Sometimes I am wrong but most of the time I never really miss games i trade in.
I own and love all three current systems!

I get those DVD cases that hold 6 or 7 discs, put the games in one of those, then print a cover showing all the games inside. After that, I just store the old boxes in the closet.
