Here is the room I game in the most.  Ironically, the Switch and PS4 are kept in another room with all of their games.  (The Wii U is there too.)  Also, I find it funny about people saying stuff like "excuse the mess" when their room looks immaculate to me.  This is literally the tidiest this room ever gets, lol.

Above: I put a 60-in-1 PCB into one of those Arcade 1-Up machines.  I've never been great at wordworking though, so I badly scratched up the surface where the controls are.  Still, this is probably the device I game the most on.

Above: My wife made this cabinet for me while I was selling video games at a flea market.  Eventually, I stopped the Flea Market business, but I still have the cabinet.

Sweet. Have you considered painting / treating the wall. A really good black paint around your desired screen size will give you killer contrast. 

Something like this. https://culturehustle.com/products/black-3-0-the-worlds-blackest-black-acrylic-paint-150ml

I'll post my ''last gen'' set up in a day or so. Plan on getting an LG GX55 in the new year / February to go with my XX which I hope to get by Jan / Feb. 

I've been on the fence on what to do.  I watch movies in 3 different formats (aspect ratios), and I also go to a smaller projection when doing 3D movies.  I was only looking at repainting the white to a flatter white for less reflection.  I wish I could have 4 separate pull-down screens, or 1 large one with curtains on a mechanical set up to change widths and heights.  

Its definitely worth doing some form of masking. I do that so I can watch the two main aspect ration (.85 and .35 and its variants). The results are worth it. 4:3 movies are a bitch to mask though, I never bother with it anymore. Where the aspect ratio allows it, I watch movies on a 124'' 2.35.1 screen (which is the equivalent of watching a movie on a 136'' TV with black bars)and play SP games on a 112'' screen. 

My gaming selection is so small now I lumped it with my anime, which is also smaller than it used to be. 

I decided to go "digital" in 2017 and sold 50+ 360 games and a dozen or so XO games but as 2018 started I fell out of touch with gaming so hardly got any of my favorite titles digitally. Now a good 80% of my 30 or so digital games are through GP/GWG. 

I do miss my 360 collection though. I always liked the way the covers looked.

I doubt the XX will change much of my gaming habits now but I am looking forward to getting one. I do mostly game on a 40'' TV which I am looking to upgrade to a 55 OLED. But I have played through dozens of games on my 112'' screen.

Go back to sleep! :)

I THOUGHT I had to go to work today. Got there and found out I'm working night shift tomorrow. Was supposed to be training new employees in the fine art of nuclear security but that's been postponed until Monday morning.

I'm still too lazy to make a new video of my game room today so here's a video from earlier this year:

I'll take some pics later.

So your training your underlings in the secret arts of Homer security.



Research shows Video games  help make you smarter, so why am I an idiot

Will post a bit later. Probably by the end of the year. It's quite messy right now and I plan to make some upgrades for my setup soon.

That looks like a small door behind. What's that lead to?


That is a door to a small attic storage space.

There's a total of 4 of them upstairs (2 in the media room and one in each of the two bedrooms upstairs).


When I had the house built and looked at the plan, I was a bit confused at first on why there were two doors in the media room until the builder told me it was for attic storage space which is nice, I got some stuff like old console boxes stored in them lol.

Ah nice! It's always good to have more storage.  Thanks for feeding my curiosity  



@d21lewis Damn, nice setup.

@d21lewis Damn, nice setup.

Thank you so much! That room is basically just full of things I love (a lot isn't pictured). Video games, comic books, Star Wars, family members, pro wrestling. A lot of times I just sit there and wish my cousin could have seen it.
