I literally have none of those problems lol. Maybe that's why I feel the way I do? I have one of each console. Beside them, stacked neatly, are all the games in their cases. If I want to play one, I get up, open the case, take the disc or cart out, pop it in and go. When I am done, I get up, eject the disc or cart, put it away in its case, set the case back in its original spot and I'm finished. Everything stays neat. Everything is right where it should be. No issues whatsoever. If it's carts or discs to consoles that I have stored away, like retro stuff, they're stored with the consoles in boxes. So to me, it's just perplexing to hear people despair about all this stuff, since I have been doing it all my life without even noticing. haha
Well, people with kids/roommates/etc. don't always have it as good as you describe when it comes to organization of the games/boxes. :P And what's the advantage to your "get up, open the case, take the disc or cart out, pop it in and go... get up, eject the disc or cart, put it away in its case, set the case back in its original spot" workflow, as opposed to just selecting a game from a menu?
"One of each" console for me is 40+ years of consoles, with collections for each, and it just became way too much to store/dust/alphabetize/etc. And if the older consoles go into storage, what's the point of having a collection?
I'm also not even sure why we're having this conversation when the original comment says this thread is only for people who've gone all-digital. :)
