I’ve always wondered what it is like to play PC games that close to such a large screen. What’re your impressions?

I really don't know how to articulate the experience. Umm, the action/horizon is still at eye level. I like that games are more in my field of vision and I am not looking at bezels. It doesn't bother my eyes at all. Textures still look good. I do most of my gaming this way, but I can also move back and game wirelessly with a controller. Which I do from time to time. Especially with the Switch because being up close the textures do not look good. Anyways, I hope that answered your question. Feel free to ask more questions if you have them.

Thanks. Do you find fast-paced FPS’s hard to play at that size and distance or is there little difference?

I don't play a lot of fps games. I mostly play rpg or mmos. I will say that there shouldn't be a difference though. There isn't any head movement to see what is going on the screen. I feel like I can sit center of the TV and see everything. On the other hand I can also recognize that it at times feels a little zoomed in with games like Skyrim. The hands just look huge. I wish I could give you a better answer with how fps play. I am curious myself. Might have to get Doom or something just to see how it is.

Problem with TVs and FPS games is that they TVs tends to have huge input lag. That is why I do my FPS games on monitor and anything else on console/TV

I've been meaning to take some proper pictures for this thread this year with a proper camera and today was that day. A few additions since last year, I've tried to add as many collectors editions as I can in these pics and theres pics of both my main setup in the living room and the retro setup in the spare room.

Thanks! Ikea, Ikea is pretty much the entire setup. Glass ones are DETOLF shelves and the ones that hold all the games are now GNEDBY, formerly BENNO.
Detolf, okay! I don't have an Ikea around me just yet - but I am hoping to get some good shelves when I move to a new city. Hopefully one of them will have an Ikea. Tried looking it up, but shipping was nearly 200 dollars for just across state lines (in land locked states no less!).

Gezzsus thats insane, the price of the DETOLF Shelves are usually around $59.99 CAD, they're not the easiest things to move either, awkward and heavy its best to take them apart and they're not overly tough to put together. Ikea is definitely your friend if you've got a growing collection.

Haha, I have more than a growing collection. I currently have over 5000 physical titles that I own, but due to where I currently live I lack the space to showcase them. Hoping that changes soon. I miss being able to see a nice, organized collection of my games on shelves.

I have a thing about playing while sitting on the floor. I also have nothing for my consoles to sit on (at the moment) and in general I'm use to playing games on the floor. I'm good at dusting and cleaning screens (no one else in the family feels like it's important). I dust my consoles each week because dust can kill a console (and electronics). I also have an IKEA cabinet.

Jesus Christ! I thought I had a decent collection. I’m guessing you have completed sets?

Damn! I have 2064 and even I have trouble showcasing them. Is your collection curated to what you like or just a lot of everything?

Surprisingly, no! I do not have a single set of completed titles. I am close with a few, such as the Virtual Boy - but I tend to buy games that I have either heard are good/great, fit my interests, ones that had a strong impact on the industry at its time, or ones that have developed a cult following.

So basically, they are mostly well known titles like Contra, Final Fantasy, Castlevania and other such. I have a lot of re-releases such as FInal Fantasy 1 and 2 that were released on multiple platforms, sometimes updated (PSP, PS1, GBA, NES, Famicom, etc). So it tends to pad out my collection quite a bit.

Mostly curated to what I like. I have picked up some titles that were recommended, but I ultimately didn't like. Some of those games are 2064: Read Only Memories, The Last of Us, and Chrono Cross.

Do you have a CLZ game collectors page by any chance. Would love to peruse your collection.

My desk is immediately to the left of the TV so I just have an office chair that I roll over. This setup is great, you really ought to spend the money.
