PostVermi's Retro Gaming Setup Pics

When scanning my old motorsport photos yesterday, i also came across these, they show my gaming setup (and stuff) during the same period so i figured i'd share them here, didn't see any point in hiding what the house looked like as i don't live there anymore anyways...

Nice. I still have a working VHS player set up in the games room.

I still have mine too, it's not plugged in nowadays, but can still be found hidden away under my TV cabinet.

I'm guessing you still own all that's in the photos?

When they said "free poster" I don't think they wanted you to take the whole display stand Vermi! :lol:

Quite a lot of it is stored away in various boxes.

I got it from Woolworths at the time, still have the giant Pika part (it's a single flat piece which slotted in the back) and the display boxes, but the rest is long gone.

It's lovely to see pics of gaming rooms from the past. Man, your setup just screams 90s Nintendo, Vermilion, and I'm reminded of Nintendo Official Magazine so much!

Just a tad. ;)

I tell you one thing i hated though, and that was the hideous wallpaper i'd been lumbered with (it was already like that when i first moved in there and we didn't get around to redecorating until 2004, oh and the purple wasn't my choice as i hated that too).

Found some more pics just now too (including some which shows my old film cupboard which was crammed full of VHS tapes), these aren't scanned though, they were taken with my very first digital camera (hence the small size) and so all the pics are from 2004/early 2005 (the last ones were from when i was packing up to leave).

Cheers, i have a pic somewhere which was taken in 1995 and shows the same table with a Super NES on it, not sure where the pic actually is at the moment though as i didn't come across it during my first search.

Will keep looking though.

Recently moved in to our new house which means a new games room set up! This is my "cube corner". I have more space to be able to grow my collection! My wife is thrilled... :slol:
