Ze Bunker Ultimate Game Room

A video game blogger is not complete unless they have a sweet game room to play in! If I don’t make such a room I will be blacklisted from the industry for crimes against humanity. I can’t let that happen. There are just too many bad games to make fun of. The world needs me! So off to build a game room I go. Join me as the room gets updated, re-done, and re-done as I just wing it and try to make it look sweet. And make the readers so jelly.

The room I’m using used to be a bedroom. After the murders it was just too hard to get the blood off the walls. Curse you Simon. But since it never got re-built I’m just going to transform it into a makeshift game room. I’m starting out by using the natural supports of the walls as shelves. I know, hippie game room right. These, I found out, work great for some cartridge games, VHS tapes and DVD cases. NES games and larger sizes seem to fall off to easily. But I will find another place for them or just made wider shelves.

Raw wood, Take that wood paneling! 🙂

This build is going to be mostly using what I have on hand, I don’t want to spend a lot of money and hoping the sheer awesomeness of the gaming stuff makes up for the lackluster carpentry. Go suck a down spout Bob Vila!

Doom’s cool red case is such an eye-sore! 🙂

So far, I’ve put in 5 shelves made out of 2x4s and screwed in. It’s an excellent place for loose SNES, Genesis and Atari games! Now I just have to find the rest of my collection. On the left I put some Genesis boxes with the hanger tabs on them. I want the room to be mostly a storage room but I don’t want it to seem too cluttered with tons of full shelves. Later I will add more shelves and maybe some taller areas to store old PC game boxes for example.

My Genesis Aladdin box needs an Aladdin game inside.

At some point I want to paint each section, possibly with a theme. Maybe have one column for Space themed games and paint the wall black with stars. Another one would be a ninja turtles section and make the wall look like bricks of a sewer. I should plan something out. Ah, screw it gonna just wing it.

Finally a use for boxed Genesis games!

Check back soon for another update. What do you think of the room so far? What are some things I should or should not do? Let me know in the comments below.
