Hello.

My brain shut off when he said “get rid of the boxes”.

Possibly fails on the space aspect but I bought a bunch of display stands from SyncoplayRetroGaming specifically for my cartridge-based games:

The handheld ones hold up to five carts, but steps can be skipped to show the full front label for the taller carts like GB/C. The seller has an image specifically highlighting height/width/depth information if you want to get real mathsy with it (I filled up four small notebook pages with measurement planning for my displays).

I do like these! but once you get to having 50 gba games you’re in trouble with this method.

I did exactly this about a decade ago. I don’t have many of the cases anymore (thanks to needing to move house super regularly at that time and getting sick of the bulk they added) but I had a good time building them and designing the inserts.

a gba clone console shaped like a gba which takes snes controllers is really not the worst idea. If I didn’t have a game boy player on my gamecube I might go for one of those.
