    I moved a year ago in a hurry and had to toss all my old game boxes. I had all of those. All the Infinity Engine games. All kinds of shit. Some lesser men collect books on their bookshelves. I collected game boxes on mine. The only ones I couldn't stand to toss are my boxes of Syndicate, Wing Commander, Space Quest 4, Ultima 4, 5, 6. I regret tossing the rest... :(

    And for that matter. With all the bullshit hype and crap they put in today's games you'd think they'd still have big ass boxes like these. I miss huge boxes I really do :( they don't even give you proper manual nowadays. But maybe that's a good thing since according to game journalists, a manual over 20 pages is too long.

    I have all of these except for Alice. Life will happen and I'll have to get rid of most of them sooner or later, but they'll have to pry PS:T's, Quest for Glory Anthology's, Morpheus' and a few select other games' boxes from my dead, cold fingers. And they damn better hope my transformation to lich ritual doesn't work if they do.

    I had the UT original box (and unreal itself) and Half Life. I also got DX when it came out, but my computer died shortly after install, so I didn't play it for some time. All have been lost, seeing as my mom is an epic bitch (she threw away my dads old 8-tracks even, and sold his motorcycle at a garage sale while he was at work).
    As a youngster, I missed the Fallout bandwagon, and ended up picking the games for 9.99 at Target in a dual-jewel. Imagine my dissapointment shortly afterwards getting FOT for full price...

    What's amazing is that these came with the normal edition. No super expensive made-in-China bullshit mass produced metal boxes. THIS SHIT WAS PRINTED IN THE US OF FUCKING A

    I used to have these hanging on my walls before my first girlfriend laughed at me when she saw them. I put them away. Perhaps I'll put them back up.

    Only box from the list I don't have is Sanitarium. Everything else though I have. Or had I should say. The boxes were taking up too much space on my shelves so I got rid of the boxes, but kept all the manuals, quick reference cards, inserts, etc. Sometime I kinda wish I had kept the boxes, but had I done so my bookshelves would just have game boxes on them at this point.

    btw, this thread prompted me to torrent unreal gold (which I have purchased previously) for a replay. Also civ 4, for some strange sense memory reaction.

    When I was in my early 20's I threw away all the boxes for my games. I did keep all the documentation (like those WC blueprints). I only started keeping boxes again after I bought my house. I still kick myself over the loss of my Ultima, WC, and KQ boxes from the 80's and early 90's.

    In the first post, I have all of the games except Deus Ex (!) and Unreal Tournament, but Grim Fandango, American McGee's Alice and Half-Life are not in their original boxes, but smaller re-release boxes. I even have the US versions of the Fallout games.

    In the second pic I have Blood, Icewind Dale, Baldur's Gate 2 and Carmageddon, but Blood came in a different box that's bigger than that Heroes box on the top shelf. I also have the original boxes for C&C and C&C: Red Alert, but not the expansion packs.

    relootz: Which HoMM games are included in that collection anyway?
