Big Box PC Games Collection

(Updated 2022-08-05 08:49:25 -0400 EDT)

Simpsons did it

I started collecting PC Big Box games, or more accurately, started SAVING all the packaging for PC Big Box games back in the late 90s. Around 2012 I set out to collect the remaining Lucasarts games, and it has kind of grown from that ever since. I love the “thrill of the hunt” and try and shy away from eBay or auction sites, its too easy to find stuff that way (and generally more expensive).

I’m trying to take pictures of each game I have with all (or at least all the important) contents, mostly for my own sanity and for public fun. I feel like PC Big Boxes don’t really get as much attention as console games from that era, and that’s a damn shame. So here’s a page showcasing how awesome and beautiful some of these are! :D

Small Box Games

To a lesser extent I also find small box PC games randomly in lots of old PC games. I don’t really try and find them, but I’ve gotten over 50 at this point so I guess I better start writing them down. Sidenote, I find it bizarre that these have any value at all considering they are glorified DVD cases most of the time, what a world we live in right?

I made a separate page for them here.
