My PS2 broke down in Octoboer '05, and I was so irritated because that was the 8th time that had happened, I swore off systems. Fast forward to December '06, and my friend and I wanted to find an activity to do, but I live in Detroit and he lives in Houston. I broke down and pursued an Xbox 360, and I came out of my year long retirement from gaming.
I dig mostly on sports games, but I fell in love with sandbox GTA games. I don't spend too much time playing, as I try to divide my free time up as much as possible. But because of my narrow gaming tastes, it does not mean I'm closed off to other game types. No WoW though, I'm geeky enough as is.
Away from gaming, I love sports, comics, cartoons, anime and movies. I don't watch as much television as I use to, but I keep up with what I love as much as possible. Cartoons are all I watch on tv besides sports anyway. I also love to write. I write leisurely and sometimes I utilize blogging. I stick to short stories more than anything. I gotta find a spot to slap a link to my myspace, if that's an acceptable action around here. I'm still unsure.
Along the long road of gaming, you tend to hit a snag or two, when it comes to being into your games. In the most recent years, gaming and home theater setups have become synonymous with each other, prompting us all to put together our most creative setup that defines who we are. This is the case for us gamers who enjoy all facets of entertainment, especially movies, sports and television. Adding the affordability of HDTVs to this mix, and home theater setups have all but become a total contest.
This may be a personal issue, but sometimes I grow bored of looking at the same surroundings. I do believe in familiarity, but I find that within the contents of my setup, rather than the arrangement of it. I first posted my serious set up here a while back, and since then it's gone through this change (and a broken digicam as well :/ ).
Its been about a year since this setup, and I think I'm ready to change it up once more. It's surprising how stale a setup can be, even if it is still kicking so much ass as is right now. But since my first setup, I've gained an HDTV and tried to get cute with a retro gaming station with my old tv. I'm gonna try to set it back up to the original spot, but optimize my area much more. I'm pretty excited to do this, since I'd love to see that first setup with my HDTV and retro spot implemented.
Do you guys change your setup around periodically to "keep it new"?
