You know what I've been doing instead of reading this time?

Designing shoes. That's right - shoes. For a contest.

Also, as this is the appropriate venue to ask about it, is't there supposed to be a box of the Sam & Max Season 2?

I miss when games used to have real boxes, instead of pithy little DVD cases.

I prefer DVD cases.

Also, I wish they'd bring back feelies.

(Well, Telltale's already doing it. But I wish everyone else would.)

I prefer legal cases

Also, seriously, is there a box or whatever of S2 coming?

No, just the pithy little DVD case, which I own.

I love feelies. There's nothing like opening a game box and seeing a bunch of stuff in there.

I don't. Mostly because I'm one of those people that tend to not throw things away, and the DVD cases require a lot less space than the boxes.

Yes, I could just throw the boxes away, and only keep the contents, but if you do that, what's the point of having the box in the first place?

Well, I cut out the box art to some of my favourite classic games and used them as posters to frame on my wall. Sadly, I can't quite do that now.

Fortunately, these days, I get plenty of real posters for free.

All of games usually wind up in a cd wallet and the cases recycled. this would work really well if my girls would put them up.

I have three huge stacks of Xbox 360 games in my room. I used to keep them alphabetically ordered, but I've long since given that up.

Alphabetically ordering things brings back bad memories of my high school part time job filing at my mom's clinic.

Would anyone believe that my entire collection of PC games only occupies a 2' x 3' area in my bedroom? Of course, it's also seven feet high, and nowhere to go but up!!!

Mom won't let you expand the collection outward?

I don't own all that many games, it seems.
