Up until about 10 years ago I had all the boxed copies of some of the most popular pc games that came out between 1995 and 2004. Games like Dungeon Keeper, Warcraft 2, Diablo, MDK, Baldur’s Gate, Fallout, Sacrifice, Space Quest, Grim Fandango, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Myth, Quake 2, System Shock 2, Starsiege: Tribes, Unreal, Myst, Need for Speed, Thief: The Dark Project, No One Lives Forever, Black & White, Gothic, Half-Life, Deus Ex, Clive Barker’s Undying, and probably 50 or so more. Played all of them and some more than once (for years). Then one day I threw them all out.
So yeah, I was a collector of really popular games. The packaging for most of them was still pretty good.
