Here's my collection of games in their original cases.
I still play many of them, but could never quite get to grips with Daikatana and POD just never ran properly on any PC I've ever owned.

Those are some serious games you got there 😲 ! Lots of those I haven't tried and they seem great. How is "No one Lives Forever"? That's one I've always wanted to try.

You should, try them both, as they are very original and funny. They really, shoulda continued the series!
Especially compared to modern FPS games.

My, that's quite an installation!
NOLF is one of the best games I've got and I've heard that the people who ended up with the SS2 IP are going to release NOLF on GOG.
Too many acronyms there 🤣

POD was a great game but you're right that it's fussy about hardware. I also have the expansion disk but have never played it because of some installation problem I never managed to figure out.

POD is FANTASTIC. But like you said it's a pain to get to run on anything that isn't running windows 9x. Nice collection, you make me feel like a hoarder though. 🤣
I currently don't have a way to display all of my games or have them easily accessible on a shelf or something so I have 2 66QT bins holding most of them, even that isn't enough storage though. 😒
I agree with some of these other guys though, where are all your big box games man? Cmon! 🤣

Edit: OMG YOU HAVE INCOMING. I wasted countless hours of my life playing that game. It was always POD, Motoracer and Incoming. 🤣

Check me out at Transcendental Airwaves on Youtube! Also wtf, why are whoppers so good?!

The only big box game I've got is Doom 3, I think.
I spent many a happy day or three on Incoming. In fact, I remember when I first saw the demo at Evesham Micros in erm...Evesham and thought...'my, that looks incredible!', which it was at the time, so I ordered a PII 266 immediately and added a the optional extra Rage Pro 4Mb.
I'll have to give the Subversion expansion pack a go later, as I can't remember what it was like 🤣

Boxes cost money. 🤣

If you're just buying a game because you want to play it, rather than to save it forever, then the box is an unnecessary expense.

You can keep the disk and sell the box to some collector.

Wrong. Anyone serious about it is looking for complete copies.

Not really, I usually pick up mint copies in the boxes from my local thrift store. My last find was this for only a 5$:

I would buy a box that someone would want to get rid of because it's so much easier in most cases to find a jewel case copy but no so much when you are talking original big boxes.

It would have to be a good price though.

Anyways...great collection btw...for me some of the best ones you have are deus ex x wing vs tie aliens vs predator and serious Sam.
