Heh, yeah.  The biggest reason I went with Zelda instead of Mario (well, second biggest, since I like Zelda more) is that it's a lot harder to tell where to draw the line for what should be included.  Super Mario World: definitely.  Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island?  Of course.  Yoshi's Island DS?  I... guess?  It feels like it's getting a bit far afield.  And then the sports games, and the RPGs, and the party games and... yeah.  Zelda had a lot fewer edge cases, and most of them I've included already (Hyrule Warriors, Link's Crossbow Training).  Tingle games are up in the air, and the CD-i games I'm fine with saying no.  Third reason I did Zelda was my copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 was missing at the time, and there was no way I was going to buy another copy of that.  By far my least favorite Mario game.

Thanks!  I'm glad you like it.  It's one of the few things I've done that look as cool in real life as they do in my head.  I think the Megaman setup looks sweet in real life, too, but man did I take a terrible photo of it, and trying to salvage it via photoshop made it look like a funhouse mirror.  They're not my games, though, so it'll be a little while before I can take another.

I agree it's not an exact representation of the dungeon, but... I dunno, I kinda like it better that way.  It's the games coming together to resemble that shape, rather than me doing things to specifically recreate it, if that makes any sense.  I figured it was close enough that people would guess it, but... not many people did; generally people just complained about the haphazard arrangement.  Yes, if I add another box (especially a 5x7), I'll move the entry area down.  Minish Cap would be good in its own box, I think—maybe the cart resting on a lillypad?  Although there's not much room for it to go further down before it ends up behind my desk—nor up, before it hits my ceiling :-)  It's really quite large!

Quick poll here: do the Tingle games belong on the wall?  I was thinking no, that they've got a Zelda character, but that doesn't make them Zelda games (much like Mario Kart has Mario series characters, but I wouldn't put them on a Mario wall).  But I'm not sure.
