I’m probably going to take some crap for this, but I think it’s worth it. Before I dig into this piece, let me explain my methodology for choosing those found in this piece. Every once in a while you’ll see a message board thread inviting the community to share their gaming and/or home theater setups. Eager forum users time and time again step up and post their pictures while proudly stating, “this is my setup!” Well, if you’re going to put yourself out there, I’m going to be the jerk that saves your picture, shares it with an audience, and ridicules each and every one of your missteps. To be fair, however, I don’t make fun of people for having poor setups due to financial constraint; everybody is judged according to how well they did within their financial means.

Ok, now I figure somebody that’s capable of travelling into the future to buy a 360 and making it back to 2003 would be more capable of a sensible setup. How does one even play this thing? Unless you’re 50 feet back from the screen, you’re going to have a sore neck in just a few short minutes of gaming. That’s just problem number one. Number two: THERE IS MORE STUFF CRAMMED IN THERE THAN IN ALL OF CHINA! I mean, I’m glad that he has several highlighters to choose from when needed, but the rest is a bit excessive. Problems three through fifty are your challenge to discover. It’s like Where’s Waldo, except for that nothing is hidden.
So when paying the money for the custom Jessica Alba faceplate, did the guy realize that her attributes would be hidden behind the disc slot, memory card slots, and common sense? Couldn’t this guy have gone the cheaper route and just printed the picture out and pinned it on the wall? Oh wait, he probably didn’t want to mess up that killer static noise paint job going on back there. I stand corrected. By corrected I mean for short periods of time. Gaming for such long hours has weakened my legs to the point where they serve more as window dressing than anything else.
This is another example where the guy got close but made a few stupid mistakes. The most obvious is the fact that his entertainment center is belching cords foward. I know that most of us do that “crazy” thing and just hide our cables behind everything, but this guy is truly a shining example of why we’re wrong.
The day that I boot my 360 out of my media center to make way for a killer VCR is the day that you’re invited to pound my face. In fact, just let me know that I’ve crossed that line and I’ll do it myself. At least the clocks on his devices are synced. In the end, that’s probably enough to make up for the cardboard box stand for the 360, right? Nope.
Looks ok, doesn’t it?
Words fail me.
