^^What is that Zelda picture?

Is it something you've made or a proper poster?

Thanks!

The other side of the room is still a work in progress but I've taken some more pictures of my games.

Image
This is my best attempt at fitting everything into one shot.

Image
Shot from the other side of the room.

Image
My PAL Dreamcast games and various collectibles.

Image
Some of my imports and Dreamcast peripherals .

Image
Original Playstation games, I haven't organised these properly yet.

Image
Sega Mega Drive games.

Image
My Sega Saturn games, the Saturn is a very underrated console in my opinion.

Image
All my current gen stuff fits onto this one shelf, below are my NES/SNES games.

Image
I would love to buy more NES/SNES/N64 games but I only really like them complete in box and I'm on a budget. Gamecube and some Master System/PSP games.

Image
I love World of Warcraft, don't play it anymore but I had a blast when I did.

Image
Original XBOX, some demos that were included with the magazine and the start of my PS2 collection.

Image
I wasn't a huge fan of the PS2 but the catalogue is amazing and for the most part very cheap.

Image
More PS2 and miscellaneous PC games. These are also unorganised.

Image
Various console boxes, I don't really want to buy any more of these as they take up a lot of room.

This room is a work in progress at the moment, I don't currently have any furniture in here yet or any consoles set up.

Image
How the room looked when we moved in last October.

Image
Having the walls skimmed.

Image
Walls painted and ready for shelves...

Image
Shelves hung and ready for some stuff...

Image
Some stuff!

Image
Didn't anticipate filling all the shelves as soon as they went up.

Still lots to do!

Um...is it bad that I'm more interested in what the pictures hanging on the wall are? :lol:

I do like the healthy 32X and Mega CD collections on your shelves though :D

Some lovely stuff in here from Laird, Samhain and Ironmonger. Really nice setups of cabinets and shelving, something I unfortunately cannot do myself.

Same here. I'm reduced to shoving it all in cupboards and constantly selling stuff off to make room :( . Ah well, keeps me from over-hoarding I suppose.

@Bambi -

Without doubt the nicest looking layout for a videogame collection. Guessing you have a bit of OCD - love the way the PS games are seperated between original Black label and the re-released Platinum versions. A man (Bambi?) after my heart

Ironmonger...

Are you REALLY tall? Or do you just plan on not playing any SMS or Xbox games any time soon?

Nah I can't reach the top shelf, but I will get a stepping stool thing to resolve that. Ijust wanted to use the maximum space available on that wall. I'm planning on putting 1 more shelf in at the bottom perhaps this weekend, just to allow a bit of growth. :shock:

I'm 5'11" :P

Just "experimented" and I can't reach my ceiling, and from that picture there's a bigger distance between the top of the door and the ceiling than there is in my place.
