Do you keep the game boxes or not?

OK, I've been collecting games for quite some time now...

I dont have any of my Atari or GameGear boxes but, I have kept all the boxes for my NES, SNES, SMS, GENESIS, GB, GBC, GBA, DS, PS1, PS2, GC, Wii, 3DS. I have even purchased a duplicate of a NES or SNES game just to get a box and/or instructions. I keep my games in their boxes except for a couple DS, GBA, 3DS games that I'm currently playing. They'll go back into their boxes when I'm done.

I avoid certain GameStop shops because they throw away everything. I do not know how they can think its OK to get a complete game, throw away the box and price it at $3 less than new!?


I would just avoid all Gamestops. They are extremely anti-video games and just throw away boxes/manuals to "save space" especially if they game is worth $5. I would never support this type of business practice. I just surprised people keep buying from them with no thought about this at all.

If i did that i might as well give up on gaming. Most stores in my town hold more XBox and Wii games than anywhere else. The 3 used game stores focus on older gen and verrrrry few current gens of nintendo and when it is a nintendo ds about 80 percent they sell are shovelware.

I don't generally buy it if it doesn't include all the stuff that came with it. However, more often than not, they do keep whatever came with the game used. I've got old PS2 games from them with the manuals and whole boxes all intact.

Ehh, depends on the game and if it's worth anything or not, but after a while games tend to loose their value so I haven't come across any that I keep for years on end.

I always keep them, but if I buy an older game(usually handheld ones) and I don't have it I'm not worried.

I only threw out cardboard boxes.

Japan is the center of the gaming universe.

I keep all my disc games in their original cases anyway. I keep 3DS/DS carts in those small cases that hold 2 games, but I still keep all the original cases and instructions etc. I don't understand why anyone would throw them away, they are a part of the game owning/collecting experience.

People throw game boxes away? I can understand losing them or something, but I can't understand why anyone would feel compelled to throw them away.
