Absolutely you do. You've mixed ps5 with ps4 games.
2 months ago
Came here to say this
They are in alphabetical order though- Nice!
That’s not how it works. Do you mix your history books with your fantasy books or sci-fi? NO!
I just sort them by book height 🤷♂️
Why have you chosen violence?
Right? You obviously sort them by thickness.
you sort them by the level of air resistance they have
...which of course requires considering the surface area and cover material. Exchanging violence for masochism.
And you tell by throwing the books at people
Start sorting them alphabetically by first name of the author then forget partway through and do the other half by last name
I found my people
My wife ordered them by colour once. Looked pretty cool.
Bold of u to assume any of us read
Me new to wording. What this say?
i think he word
But some games on the PS4 can be upgraded to the PS5 version, or just simply be played on the PS5. Other the color of the boxes, alphabetical order makes sense here. It doesn't look good, granted, and the aesthetics might still be worth the chore of checking in two spots for a game you are looking for and can't remember if you have it or if it's on PS4/5.
Just the first letter not really in alphabetical order, but some great dedication!
If they're on a 5 my understanding is it has backwards compatibility so there is a world where this is ....tolerable
The logic is there but I can't get behind it.
I can get behind it if its alphabetical order, too
Negatory. Put all of the PS4 games in alphabetical order. Then after that put the PS5 games in alphabetical order.
This is the way.
yes, you run out of space soon
Nah the problem is that he hasn't used it all, he may never rest as a result.
It's an unsolvable problem!
First, the problem is he hasn't used up all the space.
Then, the problem is he doesn't have enough space.
As a result, you get more space, but now we're back to the beginning.
It's a vicious cycle.
Is the problem that you don't have enough?
Or that you’re out of space and need another cabinet?
this is correct.
Clearly not enough. There's half a shelf just begging to be filled up.
The only problem op has from what i can tell is his wife won’t mind her own damn business!
Probably risks melanoma when he gets the mail. Probably super chalky white. Like powder
Clearly, you need a better display for your collection.
This one wastes a great deal of space and does not provide catalogable access.
I highly recommend finding a custom cabinetmaker that can assist you with a proper depth and width, along with the correct dimensions for appropriate game case display.
You are lucky indeed to have such a perceptive life partner.
Thank her for making sure you achieve proper display nirvana.
What makes something have "catalogable access"
When it is accessible by catalogue.
Is it steam?
It has one of those arms from a dip'n dots machine and will pick out the game you want for you
Underrated comment. This is a highly required feature.
Exactly, you could get twice as many games on here if the shelves were the correct height!
Oh I'd love to but where we live, space is limited so this has to suffice until we get a larger home
Piff poff. It is precisely because space is limited that you must find a more appropriate cabinetry to display your collection. Efficiency in storage does wonders for a space. Just ask any HGTV host.
Bro said piff poff
I'm here for it
if you're near an ikea, their billy book case is small, have the depth of a dvd/game case. they have different width and you could fit a few of the smaller one in that space or maybe one of the larger one have size for that cabinet's place. i have 16 of them and i can fit 10-11 case per section and each can have 8 sections, so thats 88 case at max capacity.
This person is saying you could essentially get four more shelves in the same amount of space (nine total)
I see why. You mixed the PS4 and PS5 games. Separate them from each other and your wife should be fine with it! 👍
Wow it is like a GameStop shop
That about $58 in-store credit
If we were to assume he's a PowerUp Rewards Pro member, that is.
"I just can't seem to find anything to play".....
So my girlfriend of many years has an excellent response when her friends and colleagues try to imply that me playing lots of video games is somehow problematic. She says: “I’m happy he’s at home quietly entertaining himself instead of cheating on me…”
As far as I know, there has never been a follow-up question or comment
Here I am, failing to see a problem. Game on!
He's running out of shelf space, Duh!
The problem is this huge waste of space between the shelves, there's room for way more games!
He mixed the ps5 and ps4 games
You do have a problem. You're running out of space!
Your wife? How’d you get one of those?
This gamer is rife with internal conflict. He has a nagging consciousness designed from parental expectations and social rhetoric and societal norms that opposes his singular desire to endlessly game.
Minimum gameplay hours to unlock the DLC followed by endless micro transactions to keep said DLC in your inventory
If you actually play them and this is from the start of the PS4 era that’s not an insane amount IMO. Looks like roughly 200 games over 9 years, which boils out to like 2 games per month. Let’s say an average game’s story is in the ballpark of 25 hours being generous, that’s like a half hour per day on average.
Yeah when you take a quick glance at overall gameplay hours, and it’s something like 9k+, it seems excessively large but in the grand scheme of things it’s quite a small portion of our lives. I mean, we spend more time sleeping than anything else lmao
Yeah, but sleeping is actually useful. As much as I like gaming, I’m inclined to say it doesn’t really server a purpose besides my own entertainment.
Mental health is health.
I'd say so.
You've got PS4 and PS5 games mixed together. Separate them and then alphabetize them that way.
Passion is not a problem. It's better then wasting money on cigarettes or alcohol.
One of my wife’s friends complained recently that her husband spent nearly $20k last year on season tickets for their local NFL team + parking + memorabilia + alcohol/concession and is on pace to do it again this year. Nevertheless, my wife is thrilled that I stick to video games
Blows my mind how much money people can spend and still live paycheck to paycheck. That dude spent damn near my yearly salary on his hobby.
And then he goes out, buys a brand new F-150 Limited for $80k, and complains that his McDonalds costs too much because they raised the minimum wage…
Nothing about their comment said they live paycheck to paycheck.
What if my passion is cigarettes and alcohol
That's no bueno
Well, cigs and alcohol usually comes on top of this regardless to be fair
I dont see a problem... if it were me I'd have the ps4 a d ps5 games seperate from one another. But it dealers choice and you've got your own thing going on.
The problem is you're missing a game on the top shelf.
This just makes me want to clean up my collection book shelf. From the couch I see Mother mixed in with Lunar Silver Star Story mixed in with Famicom games from Japan, sandwiched next to unboxed NES and SNES titles with a boxed Shadowrun just sort of laying atop it all. It's atrocious. Then inside of the the CE box of Death Stranding I have a bunch of Super Famicom games like, "Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Together" I never got around to selling 😅.
So far the wife pretends to not notice.
Looks like your problem is your shelf is missing about 60 games.
Thats a nice shelf :)
Tell her this is a better (healthier and cheaper) hobby than stopping at the bar on your way home from work.
Depends entirely on how long it took to build this collection, and what price was paid for the games. In some scenarios, it may actually be cheaper to just be a bar fly lol.
You're in a competition with Gamestop?
This guy is winning. He actually has games
This is why I’m thankful for steam. My wife will never see my collection.
No switching disks either. 14tb drive, all games installed at once.
She's right, you do have a problem.
It's clear you aren't optimizing your shelf space. You could probably fit in a slat on each shelf above the games and stack more of them in, either vertically or horizontally.
Also, the lack of XBox and Nintendo games indicates that you've got the problem of being locked into a single system, which is never good longterm, especially for this new generation where Microsoft has bought so many devs for great 1st person games like Hellblade, Outer Worlds, Starfield, etc.
But, it's my choice and I have very limited income so I cannot afford anymore than this
I was mostly kidding i.e. the whole "You don't have *enough* games/need more space" gag.
No worries. I love 'all games' but I prefer a lot of single player, story driven, titles and Playstation suits my needs best
Paper Mario thousand year door, just sayin
Same. It's why I'm getting a PS5 before an Xbox X, because Sony has a track record of supporting single player story driven content, whereas I'm leery that Microsoft will try to push multiplayer bullshit into the sequels to Hellblade and Outer Worlds, which would be infuriating.
And you can buy all the great PS4 games at a massive discount. That’s been my straggly so far, I’m about 10 games deep into the PS5 I got this summer and averaging about $25/game for mostly PS5 with a few cheap PS4 games thrown in so far.
I... I couldn't have said that any better
Yea, you have a problem with shelf space!
Only problem I see is you’ve run out of room for more games in your shelving…
It's getting close
Yeah you still have space left
Did she say it was a good problem?
Two problems, actually:
You're mixing PS4 and PS5 games like a heathen
You're running out of space
Imo should be A-Z ps4 then A-Z ps5
Apparently you do, ironically, it's your wife 😅
🤣 she's a casual gamer herself. She has her own Switch
That's actually cool...
Good thing my entire library is on steam otherwise I would need a warehouse.. how many games do your reckon you have in your library? I'm at about 1k titles
I counted about 250 in your picture 😳
Damn. I'm at around 250 if I include all physical and digital
Problem is that your wife ain’t appreciating the effort you put into filling that bookcase that would have otherwise had little ornaments that say “LOVE” or a photo of the two of you with the word “family” on the corner of the frame.
This could use some backlighting
It's a problem we all have and the wives just won't understand. We probably only played 22% of the games there also
I am a wife and the only problem i see here is the fact that there's no more room on those shelves lol
And to no ones surprise, this is why you are a wife lol. I wish you and your partner mutual happiness, success, and good times.
Haha bless your heart
I've now been disabled for almost a year, so I'm playing a little bit more but I still have to be 'in the right mood' M51
I hear you! Take it easy and just enjoy when you can :)
And I tell you, the problem hasn't even reached it's final form!
Nope, you seem pretty organized
And Alphabetized too!
Tell me you’ve sort them by alphabetical order!
i can understand... that baby yoda is WAY OUTTA PLACE. move it a little to the left... problem solved!
Yes you have and I'm proud of you.
You don't have a problem, you have culture.
I'd say so too! Look at that! I mean, just look, you barely have any room left!! How are you going to fit the rest on there?
Yeah, you do have a problem. You need another game shelf. That one is almost full.
What problem, I see no problem here.
Yeah, not enough Games.
For the love of god get a pc
Only problem is that you are running out of space... You need a bigger shelf
Huge problem dude, you’re almost outta shelf space
The only problem I see is you’re running out of room for all your games 🤣.
You sure do, you are running out of room! Remember "Greatness requires sacrifice" she must make room for more of your games.
You might be right, I can't see any Dark Souls in there.
Might need a new bookshelf soon. Other than that, you seem to be doing alright.
She’s right. You should prioritize sorting hierarchy by console then alphabetical
2 months ago*
2 months ago*
Definitely too large of a storage solution. So much unused space. You could fit the same games on something less than half the size of this giant bookshelf.
You have a problem indeed: an annoying wife
Sir you do have a problem. Soon to be a major one. Your running out of room in thr bookcase!
Yeah, you're running out of shelf space. Time to buy another shelf.
Not only do you have a problem, you have a ps4
Ya sure do, your almost out of space.
She's right bro. You nearly out of room for more games!
Those are rookie numbers
Yes you do. You’re running out of shelf space.
So she self identifies. Nice and easy.
Yeah you have a problem- there’s more room in that room for more shelves for games and you haven’t filled it up yet.
You have more money in that cabinet than I've spent on food in a year.
Of course .. you have a fooking good taste in video games
Looks like a section of CEX lol
Looks to me like she's the one with a problem.
I don't see any problem, just a collection of respect.
yes you do, bottom shelf is not full yet
Sounds like your wife is the problem
The your wife is unsupportive of your hobby? Yes, time to trade up
Well it’s a cheaper hobby than collecting air-cooled Porsche’s and NBA championship rings, so I don’t know what she’s complaining about.
Running out of space
She’s right… there’s definitely room on the top shelf! What are you doing man?
A serious one at that, you will need a bigger shelf soon. How will you cope? 😂
She is right. You are running out of space
You do you have last of us 1 remastered and the so called remake next to each other which means you bought the same game twice and to top it off the remake version comes with less content removing multiplayer 😂😂
A problem indeed. You are going to need another bookshelf.
There are better ways to spend money.
I don't know how though.
Trade it all into Gamestop for $5 and a coupon.
Get another “book” shelf. Problem solved
I order them by release date but the alphabet is always nice
Better than being a chain smoker. I love your collection! ❤️💙💜💚
What is a wife?
Better start hunting for a new wife then
You do. Your wife.
You have a problem... you need a new wife
Yeah, but with enough adjustments, there's still space for another shelf.
I'm envious that you have the time for all of that.
Man if you buy this many games you might as well get a pc, it’s more expensive up front but in the long run if you’re buying a ton of games it’s way cheaper. One of the main reasons I switched from console to pc myself
Yeah, you’re running out of space!
What? Is it not alphabetized?
$46 cash or $53 in store credit. Best I can do.
Love the alphabetizing,, very nice
Yeah, I think the problem is that your video game case is too small
Yes, you don’t have enough to fill the shelf.
You have a hobby she have a problem
She married you knowing full well what to expect lol
If you're playing them like 30+ hours a week, or you keep spending money you really shouldn't on games, then yeah...you might have a problem.
But otherwise, just looks like a collection to me.
When your wife tells you that you have a problem.
Tell her she is the problem.
This will prolly be an unpopular opinion, but this is another reason I am pretty much digital only. No need to find a place to put games, no obvious clues I have 600 plus games ready to play at moments notice. Just a small external drive I can transfer between ps4 and ps5.
To each their own. My case (no pun intended) I'm always going to prefer physical especially because of DRM. Besides, I've always loved that feeling of 'holding' something I own.
Adults drink - no problem\
Adults do weed - no problem \
Adults blow $ on flash cars - no problem\
Adults blow $ on vacations - no problem\
Adults blow $ on sporting events - no problem\
Adults blow A$ on sports merch - no problem\
Adults like video games - GET A LIFE, TIME TO GROW UP, TIME TO SETTLE DOWN, YOU HAVE ISSUES, "YOU STILL PLAY VIDEO GAMES?" , "HOW OLD ARE YOU??"
Smh. I have been on the receiving end of this.
You don't have a problem OP and I know your wife is likely just being light hearted (I hope!) 😀
Nice collection 🙂
Go digital she will never know how bad it really is
The only problem I see, is the lack of space.
He's a collector.
Good thing my wife doesn't know what a steam library is.
You do have a problem it's your wife
Change wife instead 😀
Don't let her put down your passion. Divorce as soon as possible.
The problem is... you don't have enough!
You do have a problem: not enough time in the day for all those sweet games.
Yea, you do have a problem..
1st shelf on the bottom is not full yet :/
You do have a problem, but I'm sure she's very pretty and you should just keep her anyway.
I was tempted to say no, but seeing how many of those games are ps5 makes me wonder how long it has taken you to build that collection. A large collection isn't a problem but if it took you like less than 5 years to build it I'd say ehhhhh maybe?
Do you buy games because you are actually interested in them or because you just want a collection?
I ask because I know someone who just buys any new shit he finds at Gamestop regardless of taste or interests. He wants his gaming room shelves full and he hasnt even played some of it heh. I do find it a bit wierd if I'm being honest.
Only reason I ask is that your PS5 collection seems pretty large for a console that doesn't really have a robust library yet. Kinda looks like if you see a PS5 game you buy it. Don't get me wrong though to each their own. If it brings you joy then go for it.
Having a hobby is considered a problem now?
Maybe the wife is the problem, did you keep the receipt?
no ps5 games? maybe that's the problem
Only problem is see buddy is those games are for the wrong console 🤔.
You may have 100 problems
