@pcgneurotic Yeah, it's the "Mom's Basement" option for the upcoming personal bases in Champions Online. There'll also be a moon base, caverns, etc.

"what you'd build for your play if you didn't have to worry about space or budget"

5-10 Wall-sized screens, cinema-style sound systems, massage-chairs tailor-made for my body, lounge for my mates each with his own fully equiped gaming-station, wall-sized fridge will all the snacks and drinks one could possibly want or need, jacuzzi, pizza-dispenser (if that were a thing), king-sized shower, king-sized bed made out of orphan-tears (they're magical you know), sexual-need-fulfilment-station (a jacuzzi filled with pornstars, selectable from a catalogue), an olympic sized swimming pool, a mini-colloseum where bums would fight for my amusement, a helicopter pad with my own helicopter, and a printing-press that would make dollar bills indistinguishable from originals.

Might have forgoten a few items, but this is the basic gist of it.

@Laurs There is a pizza dispense. I've seen picks of them. It's basically a pizza vending machine, put money in, select your toppings, 3 minutes later, cooked pizza.

Something like this: http://www.domainsuperstar.com/IMAGES/stefandidak.jpg

But with a few smaller 15" screens too, and in a more semi-circular arrangement, and a watercooled cupboard full of server racks, 1TB fibreoptic broadband, a GUI to control every electrical appliance in the house so I can put the damn kettle on without getting up, and scantily clad Victorias Secret models to bring me the cup of tea when it is brewed to perfection.

matt black walls, heavy duty military grade blackout blinds, an extremely comfortable gaming chair with options to massage, heat or cool as necessary, airlocked door and air pumps which filter and augment oxygen levels so I can have the best air on the planet, all the time, brain implants which transmit to the PC so i dont need a keyboard or a mouse, and more importantly, so i never get anything wrong, ever, no typos, misclicks, immediate responses, very high quality studio condeser mic implanted in my throat for TS3 servers, 'push to talk' button replaced by a command from the brain chip obviously, so that if i WANT it to transmit to TS3, it will.

erm....oh yeah, the greatest studio sound system money can buy, poledancers, a permanently manned bar (free of course) for when its time to get drunk, but obvisouly i dont want to have to get up to order a drink, so the command can also be sent from my brain chip and another victorias secret model can bring me it.

And probably a permanent catheter implant so i never need bio breaks, and an IV drip to keep me alive and/or awake as necessary.

that would be great.

I excel at this "dreaming big" stuff so I'm going to go all wild and crazy and say I'd settle for a desk that doesn't wobble, a monitor that turns on without me having to wiggle the cord, and a chair I can curl up in without wrecking my back.

Here is my gaming space, that I just finished building a few weeks ago. Yes I'm a basement dweller and I decided to renovate it and turn it into my own room. {Its cool, dark and quiet down here and has immediate access to the back yard for my dogs, and etc}

I'm also through and through a PC gamer, I don't own any consoles. In the images is my custom built PC, which has cost me close to $3000 since last summer to build, and I just bought a GTX 580 last week for it!

Anyway, here are some pics:

Thanks, I love it too. And if you're wondering its made from discount countertops I bought from a place called Hoods Discount Lumber. Only cost $100

The main desk piece also pulls out and has 6' x 36" top, if I need more room for something...hehe

Depends on if building a PC section or a Console section. I wouldn't want to put the two in the same room either.

PC, prob a bank of 5 pc's with 3 monitors each, so 15 total monitors. MMO dungeons lan party style, or any other actual lan games you'd wanta play... I miss descent 2. maybe 6 pc's, need an even number.

For console just 2 really large flat screens next to each other in the middle of a room surrounded by couches with a bar in the back. Screens on swivels so you could turn them away from each other and get rid of the screen watching, yet have them be able to sit straight and look proper next to each other when just watching movies or something.

If I could fit this in a crate, I'd ship myself somewhere and be a performance artist

All I need is a nice gaming rig, a mini fridge full of beer, and a box of depends...

I like interiors minimalistic and clean. There's not much to describe about my ideal gaming space. It's as featureless as possible.

As many high resolution monitors that can fit within my sitting field of view, a tricked out computer with the latest hardware and then some (or three, or four, or more), major temperature-controlled air-conditioning for all the heat that's going to generate, a cupboard full of the most expensive gaming peripherals (mice, keyboard, other funky controllers) to be swapped in and out as needed for a specific game, a comfortable swiveling and expensive desk chair with suitable ergonomic design. That should do for PC gaming.

I suppose if there's space left over, a comfy couch, major surround sound system, clear bright high resolution projection system and so on for the latest consoles.

And a way out to the door so that there's actually kitchen and bathroom access. :) No eating on all my expensive equipment, ants and coke spills, egads, not fun to dig out of a keyboard. I suppose if one were insanely rich, one could throw it away and magically get a new one all hooked up and installed and ready to go.
