Physical Elbow Room for Virtual Games
One of the most exciting gaming trends is the rise of affordable virtual reality (VR) consoles. But more than a few VR gamers have found their immersive experiences disrupted when they run into a wall or crack a shin on the couch.

Full-Size Arcade Machines
The sounds, the cabinet art, the feel of the old-school controls... it's possible that there is nothing so wonderfully retro as a full size, working arcade game. With the recent spike in retro video game parlors, it's become easier than ever to find vintage arcade game cabinets. But before you break out your credit card, consider your room size. The sheer bulk of the game cabinet—taller and wider than most people—means that even one can dominate a small room. But if your space is big enough, then there's a retro arcade game out there just waiting to lend some charm to your game room.
