"Protecting those rare and sort after games isnt easy. Here's two different ways to protect your N64, PS1, GBA, DVD, SNES and more games an boxes." - BlastProcess
Seems kinda stupid... DVD & PSOne games come in protective cases already plus honestly, N64, SNES, and GBA style carts are pretty damn sturdy plus hard to majorly damage. I mean really their biggest problem is/was dust to hinder startup but am I the only one that remembers that a little good old fashioned breath would get them going with a little effort even if those games were already 20+ years old? Canned air made it even easier. And yes I realize these options are just pennies per game but those pennies add up over time.
I've not watched the video but i'm thinking this is just about protecting the actual box the games come in. Especially SNES, NES, N64 and any others that don't use plastic cases. I guess with plastic cases you would need to watch out for colour fading from the inserts due to them being in direct sunlight.
Yeah, the boxes can be pretty vulnerable. Cases sound like a good idea. PS1 game jewel cases are pretty hard plastic and can be brittle, so they can crack, break, and scratch pretty easily. I don't keep an PS1 games out except like 1 or 2. Even those I replaced the case to a pristine one and keep them wrapped up.
How to protect your cases.........well you could look after them a bit better.
Just stack them on a shelf and they'll be fine. You can remind yourself that they're there by saying 'I really need to sort out those boxes', one every six months.
Sega Saturn game cases were the worst. Cheap brittle plastic, with hinges! Good luck finding an old Saturn game with the hinges still intact...
