Ahh so I bought shelves so I could cut up one and have more shelves and I originally figured correctly, but then I wanted some headroom to make it easier to get the games out, argh which left me one shelf short when I put my games in.  20160117_170929.jpg

I always like Atari carts stacked onto a shelf loose. Has a cool look especially with all the different label variations, including third party titles. Lookin great!:)

You've got a lot of gems in that collection!   I may have to come "borrow" that copy of H.E.R.O. ;)

You could stack the the other way on the top shelf. I bet they'd all fit.

Yes I spent tonight hooking 13 systems up to one tv and 11 of them worked.  Can't get the nes to stop blinking and the colecovision won't power on.  Tomorrow is another day.

I like the shelf...and the 2600 game collection you have makes me a bit envious of you   :P   Just kidding.  Mine is just starting and I will have a nice collection sometime in the future.  

 

Very nice to see other's shelves as it allows other collectors/gamers, new and vets alike, ideas on what they can do when collecting and storing video games.  I could use some really tall shelves for the games and movies I have (VHS and DVD).  The shelves I have now are nice but they are pricey for the amount of shelf space I get.  My games are the only things on my shelves and they are crammed for sure. Not all my games fit like I would want them but it works...for now.

Hey these are cheap target shelves (18.00)  The only crap part is the amount of adjustment they give you for shelves.  I ended up drilling new holes for all of them.  They are really cheap though, but for the price hey.....

I wish we had a Target locally.  This is what I have found so far ... and I am seriously looking for a cheaper alternative.  The shelf you found would work wonders for me as long as it could be adjusted.

Then I seen these YouTube videos and thought about making my own but we really are not allowed to do woodworking in our apartments where we live.

 

 

Wood and elbow grease is sometimes cheaper than a pressed-wood product.  I'm beginning to think I spend too much for the shelves I have.

Love the black shelving - how it enhances the color lables and creates contrast. But stacking the carts sideways would drive me nuts, AND give me neck cramps!
