Disposing, trading away, decluttering, reducing or just plain trashing my games library

So I've got decades of games taking up space, particularly on PC from the '90s and early '00s, along with many from assorted console generations. Don't have the heart to just trash them ala KonMari, so I'm wondering of there are any known sources / collectors / hoarders that will take these things, especially the boxes. Sure, I could try to eBay these things but the vast majority of it is worthless.

If not they'll probably just go in the garbage bin, since I can't imagine a Goodwill store making any money from these. Of course, I'm not giving up everything - my NES/SNES games in particular aren't going anywhere - but I'm trying to slim down my monstrous hoarding.

I got rid of all my NES, SNES and N64 games. I replaced the SNES games with a hacked SNES mini. I replaced the N64 games with a fully loaded Everdrive. I did not replace my NES games. I am so, so happy with this decision!

I gave all my games to friends but seems like some of your stuff might be harder to find interested people?

Don't charity shops sometimes sell stuff online or send it to another appropriate place that they cant sell in their own shops?

I still have a few games that I might as well give away as the pleasure someone else could get from them outweighs the sentimental value they have on my shelves.
