Introduction

Welcome to the annual NeoGAF Show us your Gaming Setup thread. Here we post pictures of your gaming setup, from the large collections to the small collections, from the big family rooms to the small room setups, doesn't matter what, show us what you got! After you've posted what you get, make sure to give feedback to other's setup so we can collectively get cooler and better setups.

I didn't have any time to take new pictures, so these are a couple months old but once I finish the rest of my place including my wrap around patio where I will have a zen place for handheld gaming, I'll update.

My Gaming Setup





Here is an update with the latest consoles



Tabris' Official Award for Best Gaming Setup from 2013

The evaluating requirements for winning this award are minimal wires visible, multiple consoles, sleek or comfy interior design / decorating, large collections, latest devices (TVs, receivers, speakers, remote controls), and something unique.

Honourable Mention

This is what Ron Swanson's video game setup would look like!

You guys better bring it in 2014, we need someone to beat Chitta as he's been king since he moved into his new pad!

I always love these threads, even if they remind me I don't have the money or space currently to pull off some a reasonably sweet setup.

Nice game stations and man caves guys.

Don't feel that way. Every one starts somewhere, and every one can make their setups cool in their own way.

Yeah looking at it I wouldn't consider it a winner at all -- nice looking couches and apartment, but the screen is tiny and his PC setup is a single monitor?! :(

EDIT: And it's a Mac.. Seriously, what the fuck? Not a Mac hater but that's not made for gaming at all.

Seems like everybody has such good and nice placement of stuff. I'll try and post my crappy stuff later, I am not in the slightest happy with.
Hoping this thread will give me the inspiration I need to fix that.

Don't care to do any cable management since I'm trying to move by summer. The ethernet cable for the xbone is 100ft long; don't feel like cutting and terminating it. Kinect faces away from me unless I do the fitness app in which case I switch it out with the keyboard in front. I've had that Duke Nukem 3D mouse pad since I was 5 years old (I'm 22 now). Nearby coffee table is for misc tools and knick-knacks.

It's not lazy, it's effective >_>

I'll still post mine later, but I really need to get an apartment before I can do anything decent.

ooo nice here we go again, nothing changed too much for this year except the TV (already posted it in 2013 thread) but since it's 2014 upgrade well :)

Awaiting for PS4 and XONE to add to the setup...

Everything is hand made by me, wires all all behind, this year I am planning to hide wires for rear speakers, need to punch a lot of concrete for that, to add tubing for wires etc, can't really do it right now, baby on the way next week :D

Thanks for the mention! Some beautiful setups here. Your new place looks amazing Tabris!

I have done some pretty major updates to my setup - X51 gaming PC, Wii U, PS4 and a Samsung 75" TV to mention a few. Will take new pictures when I'm back in London, provided the sun breaks out and I can get some nice pics.

Not much has changed from last year, PS4 replaced the PS3 (which moved upstairs). No new artwork hung, although I do have a Man of Steel print from Mondo that I haven't framed yet.





120" diagonal, 5.2 surround.

Wires. Wires everywhere.

My gaming PC and Xbox One. My PS3 and Xbox 360 are in the living room.

I need to clean up my space a bit.

Noice.

I have an old-ass ATI Radeon HD 5770. I need a new card, but $250+ is out of my range for right now. Know of any cheaper, viable options?

Mostly unchanged from last year, baby in April really changes what I can do but wouldn't change it for the world. Also, the backs are removed on the entertainment center for air flow on the Xbox One and receiver so don't freak out about it being all trapped in a box with no air flow :)

I will upload some nicer, better pics of my home theatre (Aurora) soon. Then with in action shots from different angles. I'll combine shots from the room and shots from the big projection in one pic, because it's impossible to shot an HDR pic in a dark cinema room with a bright projection. Unfortunately it's impossible to show the excellent sound quality from the german NuVero speakers and subwoofers from Nubert. I would love to demonstrate it to you all. But Germany is just a bit too far away for you I guess...
