I am either going to ebay auction these games soon (I do have GOG and steam copies of a lot of these titles), trade for other games or toss the boxes and keep the games, have not decided yet, looking for outside opinion, what do you think I should do?(no matter what I can't keep the boxes, don't have the room, I only listed the games I have or can get Digital versions of, or just don't care for).

I recently went through the same thing. I was going to Ebay mine, but in the end I gave them away. Apartment living is MASSIVLY hard on the collectors/hoarders.. And paying for weather protected storage is ... out of the question.. I had to basicly get down to.. COMICS and CARDS and video game systems (addons and games).. 250+ xbox 360 games, 75 or so PS3 games, 100+ XBOX games, 100+ PS2 games.. 75 or so 3DO games all in the original box is already a small closet full.. then add the systems themselves.. which are quite large in original boxes.. (ask bill, his collection dwarfs mine, his video tours, amazing to have that room ,and that COLLECTION!),, so i geuss i understand the problem.. EBAY is the best bet.. I feel bad I didnt do mine that way.. Whne you figure sombody out htere is looking for that stuffa nd will keep it in some collection.. why not send it to somebody who will enjoy it all over again...

Mine are now in a Rec room.. in a (cover your eyes anybody who is true collector) slighlty less then complete state, he cutt he fonts off and its a giant wall poster.. I was over and saw my PlanetFall cover.. I did try to keep my OLD stuff, but that one must have slipped in.. oh well, my own fualt.

I'm not going to comment

I'm not going to comment individually on your list, but many of those games, complete, can fetch anywhere from a couple of bucks to $50 or greater (mainly the RPGs) on eBay. Tossing the boxes would not be wise.
