Ah, video game storage: the dilemma of the rising generation. All this new technology, all these new, improved controllers, and not nearly enough floor space to spread them out. All those jumbled cables. All those missing games. What to do?
Here’s what to do: get yourself organized! That’s not an insult; it’s a call to action! That tangled mess of controllers in the corner doesn’t have to take hours to unravel. These games don’t have to be scattered on the floor, to be stepped on by unwitting toddlers later. It doesn’t have to be this way, people. That’s what video game storage systems were designed for. They’re made so that you don’t have to pull out your hair trying to find your Wii remote or your Rock Band guitar.
There are some very different options to choose from when you’re looking at game storage. The simplest of these options is essentially a bookshelf. You can find short shelves that will just sit idly by the television and allow you some place to put everything (that isn’t on the floor.) You can also find taller shelves, designed to hold scads and scads of DVDs, CDs, and video games galore! This can not only allow you to keep your games organized, but also your other media, as well.
Of course, shelves are not the most sophisticated type of technology we’ve aspired to as a civilization. If you’re looking for something more specific than a shelf, a wall-mounted video game storage system might work better. While this type of storage won’t hold the video game console itself, it will allow for pretty much everything else; guitars, steering wheels, games, controllers. If it plugs in, it can go on the wall. The main advantage of this is that it gets everything off of the floor (and out of reach of shorter, younger beings, like toddlers and dogs.) The disadvantage is, of course, that it doesn’t hold the console.
If you want everything all together, there are video game storage systems designed to do just that. You can find a stand that will have places for all of your games, controllers, wheels, guitars, console, and even television. You can keep absolutely everything you need for your games all in one place, and all organized. If you’ve already got a place for things, this may not appeal to you – but if you want to be able to keep everything in a tight space, and well-organized, this is the system for you!
