I've been doing a bit of decorating, moving stuff around in the former dining room which is now well and truly :-


An Old Sega counter is now the PC desk.


I put some leather wallpaper on the main walls with my F1 racing prints.

The other side of the room has the retro Nintendo games console, Ps3 and my collections of varius things. My old desk and monitor have now gone as everything is hooked up the the Telly.


So thats my MAN CAVE, where do you play?

You have an very nice man cave. Being as I live alone I have full reign of the house. PS3 and Xbox is in the living room. I've turned one of the spare rooms into a study so that is where my desk and main PC is where I play my Steam games. I do have a PC hooked up in the living room but I never use it now that I have a laptop.

Nice cave ace,
I play sat on the sofa in my front room, which don't always go over to well with the rest of the tribe, although they are quite tolerant really

I too am a living room player, so if I get a gaming PC a desk is out of the question and i'll need a couch solution for keyboard/mouse gaming.

I used to have a gaming room/office/spare room that was pretty awesome before the kids came along. Had a double bed with single bunk above for plenty of guests sleeping space as well as a double sofa bed/my gaming couch in front of a nice 28" CRT TV and a cheapy surround system.

These days I have the living room to myself once the kids are in bed as the wife uses the bedroom TV to watch her shit TV.

Plax, I thought you lived with an OAP ?
col, I bought a bentwood lap tray from argos when I got my pc . Its pictured on the floor. Since I swapped a sofa for an armchair it rodent fit properly. They are a good solution for sofa pc gaming.

Good call Ace, it's definitely the sort of thing i'll need to look into, though that may be too big and clunky for me as whatever I get has to fit neatly inside my TV cabinet, which will need to also house the PC, it's the best solution i've seen so far though.

I think you are thinking of Jenxy who is Wilks' partner. My boyfriend hasn't quite made it into OAP territory in any sense of the word yet :)

Did anyone else notice there was a lock on the door ;).

Sweet room, again I am part of the living room playing brigade. Mini Shroud goes to bed at 7pm, game nights are mine as Lady Shroud is out at the gym :D.

That's okay, I'm sure I can forgive you :D
I have tried getting my fella into gaming but after BFBC2 and dragging him around Eurogamer he is still resisting.

Nah I blame my parents for that, they got me a Commodore 16 when I was little and I've had some form of computer or console ever since.
