    What are the specs on the PC you play them on? 486, I'm guessing?

    I'm actually shocked that you have so many boxed games, considering your history with bulletin boards. I'm guessing these are titles you've picked up since then.

    Yeah, these are all games I've picked up over the past 5-10 years.

    I don't play any of them. If I do play them, it's pirated copies of them in DOSBox or something like that.

    I've been collecting PC games since I was a kid, but my boxed collection is maybe half of that or less. I've got them all in big copier paper boxes, wish I had the shelf space.

    Nice boxed collection, I was rummaging through my parents attic not that long ago, only to find they cleaned and in doing so threw out upwards of 20+ boxed complete pc games ranging as far back as Gobliins and as new as Half-Life. I just recently though started re-collecting, and man..I almost forgot how unnecessarily large old pc game boxes were, and they take up so much space.
    Currently attempting to complete my Genesis collection! Always looking for hard to find complete games! Send me a PM

    Congrats!

    As soon as I can get out of renting and in to my own place I can do something similar. Though, I'll have to make do with 2,500 sq/ft or so. I was hoping to do a video game room as well.

    Great collection man, i ended up selling all my old boxed pc games a while back and put that money towards my console gaming collection. I had a old pc i was using but the hassle of getting it running and those games working was to much. So i also now play the old pc games on DOSBox, it really runs great and i can stick like an insane amount of games on one DVD I didn't get into the DOSBox untill recently and i was surprised at how perfect it runs there are options so you can slow things down for the really old games.
