    That is the best thing I've ever seen.

    And damn, I forgot to add my Nes, Snes, N64 and Atari games. I'll do that later.

    I've seen this before and I'll repeat my comment from the past. That is a very nice collection of games and alot of nice work has been put into the room itself, and to the display of the games. That said, how is it he only plays his games on that SHIT television set? You telling me he can afford to buy all those games but he can't afford a decent TV? Talk about a total buzzkill, it's like what Butthead said to Beavis: "Beavis, you just sent my boner into the ground".

    Well, he explained why he has one if you scroll down.

    But I'll quote it here:

    Q: What’s up with that shitty TV, this guy needs a Plasma.

    A: My TV is a 32” and plenty big for the distance you’re sitting in front of it from the NES bench. I didn’t see the need in blowing another $400 for a 36” and Plasmas and Bigscreens are to prone to burnt images when playing older games on them. If all I played was XBOX/PS2/GameCube, then yeah, I would sooner have a plasma.
    Hell, I'm perfectly fine with my '27, might not be the biggest one in the world, but it was free, and is perfect for my tiny room. I barely touch my Xbox, and it looks fine with S-video, even tho I have component inputs.

    You have component imputs and you think it looks fine with S-Video? Either you don't have good eyes, your tv is sucky, or you got crappy 3rd party cheapo cables because the difference is always pretty large IMO.

    Also I don't buy that 32 is plenty big crap. If he's worried about burnt images then get a hd-projector and enjoy theater sized gaming for roughly $1000 w/o fear of burn in. Also that NES bench, while neat looking, seems rather uncomfortable to me for long hours of gaming.

    Collection-wise what he has is EXTREMELY impressive and praise-worthy, but his set up indeed does suck.

    Well, I have low standards on these kinds of things. My mom bought me the S-video cables as a gift and didn't know. Also, I don't even touch my Xbox anymore. The only time it is used is when my cousins come over. Why spend money just to spend money?

    At their house, my cousins play their Xbox on a '13 inch screen with a RF adaptor, and they've never complained.
    The smell of scorched oil hangs in the air as a premonition of danger, while the engine gloriously shouts its war cry...

    Throughout history, suspicion has always bred conflict. The real conflict, though, resides in people's hearts. This conflict has just begun.

    I understand, it's just that once you get used to having a nice tv anything less is a letdown.

    Here is an older pic of my setup, missing from the picture is a Model 2 Genny, Model 2 SNES, and New style Psone.



    Here is the description.


    Need to work on some things like tidying up the cables in the back and getting things on my game shelf in order but here is what a gaming nerds room looks like.

    All playable by the flip of a switch or two and running on the best possible video connection (component for the newer and s-video/composite on the rest) and also on battery backup.


    Left shelf down then Right shelf down:


    Sega Genesis with Model 2 Sega CD & 32-X/ Sega Master System

    Sega Genesis with Model 2 Sega CD & Master Converter/Turbo Duo with Kasaido Adaptor

    JVC Wonder Mega/ Sega CDX
    Sega Saturn/Sega Dreamcast
    Atari Jaguar/Panasonic 3DO



    Snes/Nes
    N64/GC
    PS2
    XBOX
    Neo Geo CD

    I would, but I can't at this moment... maybe on Friday evening after my party.

    Seemed to me that ol' lordofduct was questioning your claim to be a "gaming nerd" in that non-serious way common to comments that quietly amuse me. Just imagine "Are you a true gaming nerd jmet? Really, I beg to differ!" being spoken with an absurdly smug British accent.

    Actually I use a 20". I've always had a 17-20" tv while gaming, and to be honest i've nver had a problem with it. Maybe if it was outside my bedroom i would try something bigger, but I find that 16-bit and 32-bit gaming work best on the smaller screens, (read less pixels)

    Thank you so much for blessing us with an unprovoked comment and upon be questioned about it wasting our time further with a post saying you cannot post about it at this time but will later.

    I am not sure whether it was meant to be an insult or not but being less vague might have cleared that up.
    I was being sarcastic... we all here are gaming nerds!

    no insult was intended.
