Ran out of space, so adding another tidbit here:

My living room area is very "homey", dark cherry hardwood, dark brown leather furniture, and a very modern glass/aluminum entertainment center for my consoles (65'' Flat Screen is Mounted above it).

I am trying to do the Wii Room in a very "Nintendo-esque" design. A lot of White furniture and very open/spacious.

Man Cave is all that is MAN... So rough mid-dark woods and flying monkeys/ninjas/chuck Norris around every corner..

Lastly, I hate the "wire racks" where the disc boxes are stacked ontop of each other. I would more prefer shelving of some sort or "book case" type design.

Display? They're in a drawer under the entertainment console. Out of sight, out of mind, like they should be.

I've been looking around, but it's hard to find anything for less than $600 that isn't MDF/particle board. My advice is to figure out where you want it, then design and build your own shelves to fit that space exactly. Higher quality, less cost, and you get to use power tools.

I gave up trying to display them. If having the cases doesn't matter to you, do like I did and buy a few of those zip up CD binders and keep them in there.

@purplefeather: I'm extremely OCD about my discs/cases/manuals etc. They are all in MINT condition and I definitely hate the zip up CD binders as they can scratch the disc.

It looks like I will be building my stuff. At least I get Fuel Perks from Giant Eagle so I can enjoy free gas as I am spending money at Lowes buying up wood.

I keep my videogames in a box under my brothers bed/ underneath our "entertainment center". Not out of embarrasment, but out of sheer lack of space.
What should you do? Probably the same :/ Sorry broseph

I have a DVD/Bluray library of about 1600 discs that I used to display in media towers on a wall in my living room. Looked really nice until my daughter came along.

Now I have moved all of the discs into foot-locker style DVD cases to maximize space and keep tiny hands from messing with the disc's or worse yet, pulling a tower down on herself.

Why do you want to display them? If I were in your shoes I would sell some of them, then buy different ones. I mean, really, how many times can you watch a movie or play a video game until it's boring? JMHO.

our VG collection fits in the thing the consoles sit on, so we don't have to worry about them. Our blu-ray collection is small and we currently prefer to keep them in their blu-ray cases, though i expect that to change as we add. in the meantime, we currently own about 2k DVDs and have chosen .

I purchased these dvd envelopes a couple times (about $16/1000 envelopes and WAY lower than anywhere else on the internet) and used a super thin sharpie marker to label them. The shelf is this one, which was $39.00 w/free site to store shipping. Used these divider thingies so it isn't impossible to find the movies. Works so far. Can't tell from the original pic, but it looks great!

are you utilizing the space on your ceiling? >_>

In a box, not displayed. I guess I viewed them like books and worth displaying, but not anymore.

@devexityspace: If you want to keep them in great condition, don't display them where they get reached by direct sunlight. I have so many memories of the video rental store in my home town with huge windows. All the movie boxes facing next to the wall were almost white with sunfade. Some of those movies were only a couple of years old.
