    So, what kind of system do you have on your library? Alphabetically arranged? By genre? Release date? Priority (how much you play a game/games you're planning to play or get constant playtime) By platform? Say so [​IMG] I'm organizing my 23 Xbox games right now on a shelf that can only fit 15 cases so I figured I'd get some ideas from other people.

    Thanks

    My collection is arranged by priority I guess. Don't set it out that way, it just happens. Last played game tends to go on top/at the front (some of mine are side by side, other games are stacked).

    Alphabetically by system.
    I used to have it arranged by genre, but it eventually got to be too much of a hassle.

    I don't have physical copies. So no need to organize [​IMG]

    Having physical copies is pretty nice. If I had the cash, I would get all over owning physical copies of especially my favorite series.

    For my games, they just kind of get put in any order. I always know what I'm looking for and where it is, so the rest doesn't really matter.

    No particular order (Well, there's no order in randomness anyway), except by system, and I try to keep series together (like suiko 1 next to suiko 2).
    Some are even in boxes, no order at all, I just look at all of them when I want one in particular.

    By system and by genre. I haven't got a big game collection, so it fits in 2 small cabinets.

    Depends on what it is. For something like the DS where I only have a few carts, I don't bother sorting. For something like GBA where I have some more carts, I sort them a bit (RPGs together, pokemon games together, mario games together), for something I have a lot of I might alphabetize (like dreamcast discs).

    By console's respective company and then alphabetical order.

    With an exception to PS3 games, with those i follow the number order at the bottom of the spine.

    Go to homebase, buy some cheap MDF, put a shelf together and then sort your games alphabetically.

    Random as fuck, thought to sort them never crossed my mind and I'll probably never do it.

    Pretty much scattered around. I always know where they are though is the weird thing.

    Simple: I don't. BTW, since XBOX games are all shooters anyway, I guess you can shuffle them around, pick one at random and still be playing the same game, anyway. [/trollface]

    System>Game Name

    (XBOX 360)>(Portal 2)>(Portal 2 ISO)

    Same for my DS, and Wii games. Saves have a sub folder inside the game's folder. Simple.

    For my Wii and Gamecube the boxes are stacked against the consoles. On my DS,I don't organise them, I have all my games in the one folder listed by their release number, a bit untidy but it works.

    op PC (steam) I have two ways:
    By genre (I made up few of my own) and "favorites" that are what I generally play.

    On consoles (PS2, GameCube, Xbox) it is by system - and also my favorite PS2 games get place in the top shelf DVD rack while lesser favorite ones get to lower shelf, that also includes gamecube games in it.

    I am runnig out of space though, PS1 games and generally, need to figure out new system for this soon...
