I'm a sucker for free sh*t. I still own every box, every manual, every map, every styrofoam insert and CD sleeve from nearly every game I've ever bought from as far back as the mid to late 80s. I still have boxes and manuals for DOS games and NES games, and the extra catalogs that come in the box and try to sell you their merchandise, the dropins about the old Nintendo game tip line, etc. Aside from the plastic on the outside of the box, I save pretty much everything. Manual from the first LoZ, the paper Startropics map that you're supposed to dip in water, the box for Diablo 1, even the paper inserts that held the cartridge in place for Game Boy and SNES games. The only things that got thrown away were from when I was like... 2 or 3 and my parents were buying me stuff and chucked the packaging, but I still have a lot of it.
So I haven't done it yet, but I'll still send away for it. I don't know if I'll frame it or if I'll just fold it up and put it back in the box, but I will get it.
