I use plastic storage drawers that pull out. They work just fine.

I currently use one of those large, plastic containers that's designed to fit under a bed. But I also lack the space to do much else with them. Ideally, I'd look into some modular book shelfs or build my own that are more fitting to the NES cart dimensions. But that'll have to wait until I buy a new house with more room.

^^^This. Office Depot has a certain 3 drawer version that fits 3 rows of carts perfectly. The drawers are also the perfect height so there is no wasted space. They work nicely.

I just put them on their side in alphabetical order on a shelf. Seems to work fine. At least most of their labels are readable that way and it's easy to pick what game you want.

Was gonna suggest what Joey already did. They're about the same size as CD jewel cases anyway, so they wouldn't be out of order next to a CD collection.

I'm using the plastic-drawer method too -- there's a set from either Office Max or Staples, I forget which, that has two drawers just the right width and depth for two rows of NES games, and then two shallow drawers above that that are perfect for (non-EA) Genesis games and N64 games.

yep, 3-drawered storage bins.

(NES is the top 4 drawers of the center units, and they're visible when the picture is fully enlarged)

 

mine hold either 4 rows across of unboxed games, or else two rows of boxed games, and 1 row unboxed. both ways fit fairly perfectly, and I can get 80 unboxed games in a drawer.

video games get pretty heavy, so I've opted for some sturdy racking to hold the whole thing together.

I use some of those plastic CD boxes. The ones that are fairly generic, don't have deviders, and are for holding around 25 discs. They work cool, hold about a dozen carts, and don't look to off. Probably not the best for tons of games, I actually got mine just put on a couple of CD shelfs, one of those designed to hold around 200 discs.
