I was kind of thinking the same thing. I used to have grand plans for room additions and other redecorating. After playing games and seeing smaller, humbler abodes (as in Norrköping, Sweden; Capri, Italy, for example), I've come to appreciate what I already have: My smaller, older home with its so-called outdated spaces & appearance... appliances included. I have an old, cheap-o, tall bookshelf where I store my games in their boxes. The 5 or 6 shelves seem to be enough storage for what I've got. My PC is in an armoire, which holds some more games, but most important, hides lots of desk clutter. grin

Hah! Great topic! Indeed it has!
We are building a new home, and computers/gaming/shelving/extra
electrical plugins are in the design that never would have been several years ago.
The conduits coming into the house are numbered to allow for all of the extra
connections that we are going to need, including the Satellite TV needs.
It's amazing how the focus has changed over the years.

bravo

The computer has always been in the living room, but I did buy some bookcases to store the games. Also, ever since we bought some consoles, we have created some empty space in front of the television and placed our hometrainer(bike) there. I sometimes spend my lunchbreaks playing a game while working out, and my husband often does so at night. We're currently playing CSI Hard Evidence on the Xbox 360 for instance, in chunks of one hour at a time, and Wii Fit on the Wii (not really a game). I also have some old PlayStation adventures that I play on the PS2 while cycling "around". monky

Gaming and Computer have taken over my home, family, friends entertainment budget......and I love it. Nothing better to keep the mind sharp, when a new game arrives, my husband says goodbye for a few days. We meet at the kitchen stove and he will pass through the office to see if I am still among the sane.

My goodness, reading all these posts makes me realize I am way behind with the times. I bought my first computer 3 years ago (with XP) and then a laptop. And I thought I was pretty hip with this lol
And I see people who have their old computers - 95, 98 etc lined up next to their new computers or with special rooms for gaming.
Oh well, I'm over 60 so I can't be expected to keep up with the under 50 crowd.
Becky - one question - why a computer in the kitchen?

RAL -- the computer in the kitchen means I can watch my young son while he's online. Also, the kitchen really is the cheeriest place in my house. grin

Good call, Becky.

As for my place, I just have my desktop in my bedroom. Same as I always have. But I've had to clean out some storage space for all the games I've accumulated over the last year. smile

The house we moved from had a large extra bedroom and I had plenty of space for computers, games and books. When we down sized my room was half the size. I built shelves for my games and left room for the new games that arrive. I do not know what to the books, but then I have not looked very hard. The rest of the house looks normal?, I think.
