If you had all the money in the world[NSF56K]

What would your setup look like? I mean your gaming area/rigs and all that.

I've been toying around with the idea of saving up a large chunk of cash to set it up exactly the way I want it, and I'd really love to see how other people have/would have theirs set up.

go ahead and post pics of your current setup if you have them.

My setup, in my room:

deskarezlol.jpg

My desk. small, a little bit messy at the moment. Fine for what I have atm.

Caliber66005.jpg

My console area. While the entertainment center is alright, I really want something that looks...I don't know...more, professional?


post your setups!

    I'd build my own theme park, with blackjack, and hookers...

    No, seriously, I'd probably have something similar to Bill Gates' house. Because that's pretty darn awesome. He's got like CES every day.

    Oh, and I'd be able to afford a PS3.

    Fix'd

    As for gaming rig, I'd have all the newest stuff, the biggest tv, and all the consoles in the world.

    But really, I'd just buy all the pants in the world, and then burn them.

    I'd hire some crooked Korean scientists to make some Mech warriors.
    Then I'd sick said Mech warrior onto the population.

    Possibly piloted by mutant bananas.

    I would have all of the new systems and they plus my computer would link to a 12' HDTV. Every controller would be wireless and the house would be set up so that I could carry my wireless controller through the house viewing HDTV's mounted in the ceiling along the way and still play the games while walking to the kitchen or the bathroom. The walls in my house would house IMAX quality surround sound. People would come to worship at the altar that would be my gaming palace.

    I would also seek legal action against the Uwe Boll for producing crap movies, the makers of Eragon video games, and Jack Thompson.

    It's been made abundantly clear that Ten O'Clock is time for Rainbow Six. It is not time for other games! You might think that it is, but it isn't. Don't show up at 10:05! That's not when it is. It is earlier.

    I love this idea. Should we form a charity that is actually a mask for our mega corporation focused on pants burning? Because using other peoples monies is even better for the pants burning.

    Aside from the main question, go ahead and post your actual gaming rig, too. I'll get mine up(nothing spectacular) just to get it started after I take a couple of pics.

    Or possibly buy a city/part of a city and have it remodeled to look exactly like all the stages of Duke Nukem 3D.

    I'd get about a 60" TV for my living area, paint the wall behind and around it flat black, or hang some kind of black curtain to eliminate any unpleasantries when the lights are out. Probably have a wii and a Xbox 360, but not a PS3 until FF XIII or something. Leather sectional sofa, 2 recliner sides with the middle that has a compartment for remotes and cup holders. Finally, probably a 7.1 soundsystem, as it'd probably be best price V performance right now. As for computer, a nice LCD monitor. I have an NEC 19GX2, which does a good job, I'd probably stick with it. Computer really isn't my thing, so I'd stick with what I have which is about 2 years old and plays doom 3 on lowest settings, or maybe with a couple of the effects turned on, but definitely not more. And a desk thats L shaped like I have already, its about 6x6" so I have plenty of desktop space if I need it. I guess the only change would be 60" TV from 46, and a nice 7.1 sound system instead of a 5.1 home theatre in a box I got used for 150 bones. And the painted wall or curtained off thing.

    Edit: I took it more from the 'thinking of spending my wad, what would you spend your wad on. But really, I wouldn't want much more if I had billions, as I wouldn't be sitting at home playing amped, I'd be up at baker.

    I would build a giant castle in the heart of an expansive forest.

    I guess I'll need some maids to clean the place.

    And some cooks.

    And uh... core 2 duo extremorz with two 8800s overclocked with watercooling or some shit with harddrives and lasers and shit.

    If I had all the money in the world I'd rip control of FASA's IP away from Microsoft. All of them. And grab Crimson Skies as well.

    THEN I'd make a Shadowrun MMO.
