While I don’t talk a lot about my personal life here (as this blog is reserved for my gaming writings), a recent update actually does warrant an entry here.

I’m in the process of buying a house right now. My first, actually, and I am finally getting the chance to indulge in something I’ve always wanted to: And that’s building a game room.

I’ll finally have a place to store and display all of my old legacy systems and software, my gaming art (including a nice autographed photo of Kerri Hoskins from her Mortal Kombat days), my Tron arcade game, and a bunch of other related goods that have sat in storage for quite some time now. Being that I live in Las Vegas, I may even put a little bit of a casino touch in there.

It’s one of those things that as a kid, you always have this dream of having an arcade of your very own, and the prospect of doing this now is pretty exciting.

One thing I am trying to decide on right now is carpet choices. While this may sound a little lame, I found a place that does arcade style carpeting. If you guys want to help influence the look of the room, take a look at the samples listed, and I am totally open to feedback.

I figure this will be an ongoing project, but I will post pictures of my “Room of Doom” as it nears completion. I have to admit that this is a project that I am really looking forward to.

What are some “must haves” for a room like this?

Also, Sony’s The Last Guardian looks fantastic.
