Thoughts on Steelbooks?
« on: August 14, 2023, 12:19:10 pm »
So I bought a PS5 last year after working my ass off at a summer job. It was my first ever console that I actually bought with my own money and could say belonged solely to me. Once I started buying games, I found myself attracted to the idea of starting a game collection, specifically one of physical editions of games since I thought the switch to digital copies was super lame. Once I started getting digital copies, I started looking for steelbooks because I thought they added another layer of specialty to my collection, and generally had more minimalist artwork that I loved.

I even began to seek out custom steelbooks online for games that didn’t come out with one. I even spent 100$ on the FF15 deluxe edition just for the (absolutely beautiful) steelbooks. I wanted to know if anyone else had this intense desire to collect steelbooks? I’ve had other people call it dumb and a waste of time, but I wanted to get your opinions on it.

I don't wanna collect 'em, but they're cool.
Hope you're having a good day!

I think I got one or two as a kid, but I don't care much about them. If anything, they make the game look out-of-place on my tv shelf because now the case does not match with the other games 😛

But if you are into collecting them, they definitely are a bit more special than the normal cases.
Got a question or need help with the forum? Shoot me a message :)

This is the first time I hear about Steelbooks, but according to my 2 cents, any kind of physical media that is used to represent digital goods is a waste of space. And that's not because I have some stylistic preference, it's just purely practixal: if this thing can fit on a microSD card and work the exact same way, why would I want it to take more physical space than that? I've never bought a physical game, but I've bought music CDs and I always rip them and throw out the CD.

On the other hand, I understand people who want to collect certain types of packaging as pieces of art, just like people collect coins or stamps, but I wouldn't have anywhere near enough space at home for that - they're way bigger than stamps  :laugh:
