With the exception of used games I put most of my game boxes away, although truthfully the cases don't feel as special as the gba or before to me anyways. But really as long as I have the cart it doesn't matter. I have one of those club nintendo cases I just need to get another one once I fill up the club nintendo case and another one lol. I just wish I could find one for the GBA games. If it wasnt for shelf space I'd love to have my games on there but I'm not really a "Showwy" person either.

I keep em, it helps with resale value when selling online.

I just keep my games in the boxes. I don't really take all my games with me when I go out, just the one in the system. After all, I have all those digital games to play if I get bored of the game in the game slot.

Only the cardboard boxes this was even remotely acceptable with, and that was not remotely acceptable.

I have most of my game boxes, but only because I don't know what to do with them.

I just hate how some of these games are considered "New" as long as they have manual and game box especially on amazon and Gamestop and they jack up the price so it's cheaper to buy it used but Idk what to do when I have soo many "used" copies like that -_-;

What I don't understand is how someone could actually throw them away.

4 years ago#9 mom would every every 4 months go through her game case and toss out any game boxes or manuals with games she don't have and sometimes games she does have would get tossed out by accident -_-; unfortunately. Then as for me, the used games I see are say $7 for Professor Layton used compared to $25 new atleast thats a big gap where I will pick it up used, now say if it was $10 used for Scribblenauts and $15 new that such a small gap I will pick out a new copy. The only thing is I have such a small crappy collection (I used to be sell happy) that I'm rebuilding my collection which consist of 5 DS games, 8 GBA games, and 3 3DS games, I have one extra case I was able to salvage from my mom lol. That unfortunately I'm saving for a game that I have a manual for ( I would salvage those too). We never had shelving space in my house to "display" them so my mom would take a duffle bag, yes it sounds lame. As for me I converted most of my cds to mp3 so I can have shelf space for my new game collections. I just wish there was a booklet case for gba games instead of a "wooden cigar box" my brother (who I lost) left behind so I could use that for other things. To me the game boxes cheap or not are still part of the whole awesome package.

I could understand throwing away the GBA boxes or something(since they were just cardboard), but i dont know anyone who specifically throws the plastic cases away.
