Would be way too many pictures. A lot of my stuff is still in boxes.

This is probably the best I could do without having to take like 20 different pics:

Nice! I've only recently decided to "crack down" and play the Monkey Island series. So far my only physical copies are the CD jewel cases of the 3rd and 4th games, no boxes:

I've played the remastered Special Editions of the first two so far. Wife played them as well and now moved on to the third, while I decided to take a break from the series and played Day of the Tentacle (Remastered) instead.

Now if we are talking steam releases, I have a bunch. When it comes to physical releases, though, I'm only starting to grab PC games.

They occupy a shelf that is otherwise filled with Nintendo and Sega console cartridges, and the only games I have coming in the immediate future are the Limited Run Games releases of Dark Forces and Jedi Knight.

Funny, these almost look like VHS tapes. 😁 I recently found a VHS set of Star Wars - the original trilogy that someone put next to the recycling bin at the street corner. Wanted to show them to the kids for them to know how people used to watch videos at home. Alas, I don't have a VCR anymore, and the one I borrowed from a friend apparently sat in the garage for too long and rejects tapes. 😜

I'm sure you can find a treasure trove of them at any number of second-hand stores. Either that, or you can find tape-rips for an almost-right experience.

I wonder if someone actually implemented a filter for a video player that adds VHS artifacts and glitches. For that authentic experience, you know. 😜
*quick web search*
Yep.

It metaphorically sits on top and in front of the modern games 😁

So, I don't have photos yet, but I have 8-10 shelves worth of games, double-deep and stacked. So..hmm...360+ games? maybe 400+ or more?

I'm going to have four games buried with me that are signature games from my childhood I still play today. Dune II, Star Control II, Falcon 3.0, and Doom II. And for you that are thinking Atari E.T. landfill to pry it out of my cold dead fingers in 40 years, I'm going to booby trap my coffin.

The sad thing is that our wives will put our collections on the curb for Spring cleanup when we are gone.

Got a few things from the local St Vincent charity shop today for $nz8. "Mag Racer" can be installed on Windows 3.1 and Windows 95.

Apparently 32-bit is dead and nobody likes P4s.
Of course, as always, I'm open to correction...😉

Been scouring the local charity shops again. Got some nice games, blank Sony CD-RW as well as blank Sony DVD-RW and a kwal Dick Smith Electronics 4-port USB hub along with USB extender cable. Around $nz30 all up.... The clip art disk is for Connie to go through and see if there is something useful for her stain glass/woodwork(pyography, carving).

My small but humble collection. Working on getting all of the Lucas Arts classics.
