Arcade collectors are a funny breed. Wherever there is room, we think we have space to cram another cabinet. It doesn’t matter if it’s in mint condition, in need of some repairs, or if it’s a total project machine…we’ll find somewhere to keep it until we have it fully restored and ready for placement in our arcade rooms or for sale.
My wife was very patient with me while we were living in our condo and despite having a garage, we both were scraping ice off of our cars each morning during the winter or getting heat blasted each time we opened a car door. Since we didn’t have room in the house, my cabinet projects owned the garage. However, my obsession pales in comparison with some of the dedicated arcade collectors that shared the pictures you’ll see below. Many of these pictures are of living rooms, bedrooms, and even bathrooms of your typical house. I imagine there are either some angry or very patient wives out there…maybe both.
So do you any of you out there have games stuffed in corners, behind doors, or next to your bed? If so, email them to me at jar155 [at] gmail.com and I’ll add them in or include them in future posts.
