Boxes, Because You Can Show Them Off
You Could Be Like Hey Look Guy's I Got The BOX For Metroid Look How Cool It Is
You Dont Wanna Be Like Hey Look Here's My MANUAL For Metroid
boxes are cool to look at screenshots on back but manuals help me more
Hmm....boxes would be rarer and harder to find for older systems but sometimes I'd rather just have the manuals due to lack of space for all the boxes. So I'm going to go with manuals.

Boxes? Who cares?
Depends on the system.
NES would be manuals. I like the look of the carts on my shelf. No boxes needed.
Original GameBoy would be boxes, as I still have most of my manuals.
Genesis would be boxes/cases. Manuals would be a bonus.
N64 would be both. Wouldn't purchase an N64 game any other way.
There aren't many games that I'm dying to play or acquire.
So I'm fine waiting for something in the form I want and at a price I agree with.
For me these days, it's all or nothing. However by "all", I mean box/case, instructions and game. The little cards and warnings are icing.
The only time I make an exception for a loose game are for famicom pirate carts. However that's reasonable because for most pirates, a box/instructions were never produced.
The only ones I really prefer complete are SMS, Genesis and TG-16 (and for me complete is case, manual and game, no need for cardboard sleeves in the case of TG-16)
I will accept case and game if necessary but prefer manuals at all costs. For example, I passed on a Case and cart only copy of Genesis Carmen Sandiego for $9 since I think that particular game really needs the manual as some game clues, suspect profiles, etc are in the manual.
It depends on the console for me and not mention the price.
Genesis:must be cib but for the later release loose is fine.
NES/Famicom:Must be cib but if it's really costly cib then loose is ok.
Neo-Geo MVS:Kit's only if the price is right if not then loose.
PC-Engine/TG16:Complete only,as for the later release loose is fine long as it has the manual.
Those are the few example i can give for when i want a complete copy of a game.For the modern stuff that's on disc i really prefer complete compared to loose.
