Yes, thank you Becky. It is slower than I would like, but finally getting through the day breathing better. Not sure what happened, usually a bad attack means a bad infection, but not this time, just a bad reaction to something.....maybe Indiana??? lol Anyway, I am back to walking the halls at school, slower, but gaining speed.

Thanks!

Well, Lets see--Our den has a tv/console game area--and the two computer desks side by side with 4 computers. I have shelves and CD holders arranged where ever there is room--I have played games on top of the entertainment system.

Ahhhhhh Life is good!

Well, my computer is in my living room, and games can be found all over the place... But, I tried to find some paintings to hang on my walls and then realized that some screenshots would suit there most, so I had some screenshots from Myst games printed on canvas and hung them on my walls... I think they look great duh

Our Dinning area has been turned into a Computer area. We have 2 computers on 2 desks in an L shape. Who needs a Dinning table when you can eat at the computer and game at the same time. We have 2 gaming consols in the living room and 1 in our bedroom. There is also a gaming consol in our grandsons room. Games are everywhere we can fit them. wave

Great topic thumbsup When I look around in our livingroom, I don't think gaming has influenced the design much - at least not to a larger degree. There are two computers with comfortable chairs, mine - facing two windows on the left and right - is flanked by two Benno shelves (Ikea design, I just love it) stacked with cds, software and a couple of games. And an action figure of old Elvis as portrayed in the movie Bubba Ho-Tep grin
To the right of the right window, there are three more Benno shelves; one of them is already packed with games, some games I had to move to another shelf which still has some space left. A little to my left, there are more shelves - these are filled with books, two of them are filled with dvds. Every time I buy a new dvd I wonder where to store it; same with games. Although our apartment is fairly large (67 square meters), we have run out of places to erect shelves on. We plan to move to a bigger apartment in the near future (2-3 years, need to save some money first) with at least four rooms, one of them will become our multimedia room containing all our books, cds, dvds and games. By then, my collection will probably have grown lol

Surprisingly, it hasn't changed my room much. Only a nice shelf on the wall to hold some of my games, and the rest are in my closet, or scattered on my desk.

Jehane, your place sounds exactly like mine. Games, books, DVDs, they really eat up the free space. lol

This is such a funny thread. It sounds like we are describing how we provide loving care for our "babies". I have a small room, might pass for a nursery but not more, with my fast computer and my old pentium 3 for the old games. Two bookcases (one had to be put inside the closet) full of games. I orginally had a drafting table in there but had to move that to my bedroom to make room for all that "baby" paraphernalia.

Now that is a great idea--So many games have such beautiful scenery.

Sadly, I have no room on the walls for anything else.

When I first read the title of this thread, Becky, I was thinking you wanted design tips we may have gotten from games. In keeping with that, I would so love to redesign our house with separate pods like Tomahna in Myst 4, but then I'd need a property much bigger than the one I have now.

My husband already has his own pod - a detached garage. His computer is out there along with his tools and his motorcycle. It's a perfect retreat for him.

My sister has a computer in her room and keeps her most frequently played games in her own desk, and I have the front room of the house, the former living room, as my office/computer/craft room. I have a big roll top desk that will instantly hide my current mess of game notes and other paraphernalia if company comes, and my extra-long computer table holds my iMac, scanner, printer, paper organizer, and drawers for the disks I'm currently using. My typewriter table (sans typewriter) is just right for keeping snacks off the keyboard and holding stray game folders, and a 24-drawer apothecary chest holds most of my games in jewel cases. Two side-by-side legal-sized file drawers hold all my game filescontaining collapsed game boxes, game notes, and purchase receipts. A tall and thin bookcase holds game guides, DVDs, and unusually-shaped game boxes.

I also have internet hookup for my laptop by my comfy chair in the living room and a special kidney-shaped tray that goes across the chair arms so I don’t have to hold the computer in my lap. The drawers in the table next to my chair hold my smaller laptop and note paper.

Finally, the library/guest room (my retreat from my chatty sister) has a convertible chair and a small adjustable laptop desk I can pull up under the chair. A small chest of drawers holds game items as needed.

It’s true that my house would be much less crowded if I didn’t play games, but life certainly wouldn’t be as much fun.
