Most of my gaming sessions end in a really difficult boss fight. Perhaps it would be better if I didn't take my console into work.

I have this dream. It revolves around winning the Powerball lottery, and using the money to build myself a fortress of solitude. Probably somewhere in Cape Town. Of course, my future mansion is going to have a rather kickass entertainment room, with big screen TVs, chairs made from some sort of endangered animal leather and a gaming setup that will give anyone who walks into the room a massive rush of blood to the groin.

And then I saw this setup, which promptly kicked my dream in the nads, shattering it with this overpowering tribute to gaming majesty .

Let’s have a look at some of the 24 systems that owner 16BitGhost has on display there. So far, he has:

  • Sega Dreamcast
  • Sega Saturn
  • Nintendo Gamecube
  • Super Nintendo Entertainment System
  • Nintendo Entertainment System
  • Atari Jaguar
  • Playstation 1 and 2
  • Original Xbox
  • Sega Genesis/Megadrive

And then there’s that stunning collection of vintage and retro games. I don’t know how he managed to hook up two dozen systems to one TV, but that’s the kind of gaming lair that I want be buried in.

Like a mausoleum that celebrates multiple generations of gaming. I think I might have to give my architect this video to watch, after I win the jackpot tonight.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
