Hey, you buy mostly "complete" games with
boxes/instructions, or does it matter?

Also, do you store the games in the boxes or
seperately (like me) for easy access?

i dont know about dave, but i only keep display boxes if they provide easy access to the game (genesis, Intellivision, master system, neo geo pocket, etc).  atari, NES, SNES, N64 and other cheap paper boxes i fold up and put aside.

That would depend upon the system.  In general, I try to get the game complete, but only if I can get it at a reasonable price.  Almost all of my Genesis games are in boxes, but very few of my NES games are.

I usually keep the games in their boxes, except for classic carts like Atari 2600, Colecovision, and Intellivision, which I keep in plastic drawers.

I consider boxes nice to have but not mandatory.
