You know in that picture he`s thinking either (or both...):
1)Take that, Mom...won`t let *me* get an Atari! Muahahahaha!
2)Finally! I`m the coolest kid on the block! All the kids want to play at *my* house for once! Muahahahaha!!!

Not that I`m also not jealous as heck...

Very very good. Sad thing is he probably doesnt have anything upstairs, with all the money spent on those games.

UN freakin` believable !!! that is SOO Cool !! i remember most of those games too .. and the "tail gunner" game was a flying game and you`d get into it and when yu started to fly .. the console would move up and down with the movements you made with the joystick .. it was a neat game for sure .. that guy TOTALLY rocks !!!

he wouldnt pay for the games, as he would get the money back, or just put it on free mode.
Its not as if theres someone collecting the money.
I would love that basement, but as said before, with some sofa and stuff too

A lot of you are missing the point here. Yes, you can get emulators with those games (I have), and yes, they`re available on consoles (have those, too), but it`s just not the same.
The button layout - hell, the whole FEEL of the game is completely different when you`re playing on the real thing.
And if this guy has the money to spend on the actual machines, he`s lucky.

come to think of it.... if i really did have the money to build that kind of basement...


i`d probly just plaster the walls with giant TV`s and hook up some microcomputers with emulators and some nice controllers


all those games in one spot is kinda crowded, you wouldnt be able to have many of your buddies in that basement without someone spilling booze on your stuff

He could have set up a dozen computers in his basement and held LAN parties. This way, he has to pay to play his own games. What a sad and irrational individual.

??? So he could fill the basement with instruments he doesnt play or he can fill it with games that he obviously enjoyed. Think I would take the video games because even as a musician I never saw the point in having more than the guitar you really enjoy playing and a practice one.

But yeah cool as heck! I would love to do that in my basement, but I already have that slated for deathstar conversion. Yeah seriously...

If given the chance to live in that basement i would do it in a blink of an eye in fact that would be so awesome but i think there might be too much video games. I think it would be better if there was like some couches and hang out spots instead of constant video games i think that would get boring after so long.

Actually, you know, you can set most arcade machines on a free mode >.>

If I had that kind of basement, I`d make sure to include a DDR or two in there.

hmmm... that`s being quite a creep.. can`t imagine how much he`s paid to get all of those games, plus the electrical bill.. maybe that`s the bait to get lil`kids into his basement or something.. with all that said.. I just made the comment out of pure envy that`s so cool. If my basement was an arcade, I wouldn`t even talk to my neighbors (not that i currently do, but..) oh well. that`s maybe the reason I don`t even have a basement.. =(

He isn`t rich most likely he just didn`t get married or have kids. You would be suprised at how much money you save doing that.

Pretty cool. All really old school games so I didn`t recognize a lot of them.

I grew up on Time Crisis, Rampage, and the occasional bad simpsons game.
