What room (or lack thereof) in the house do you typically game from? I'm setup in my living room which is pretty convenient when I want to popup my screen on the TV, though I've been known to game from the dining room, my bedroom, and even my garage occasionally if the weather is really good. There is nothing quite like relaxing outside, playing a game of civilization, and sipping a lemonade on a breezy summer day. Where do you play?

In the living room mostly, I think me gaming outside in my boxers would probably scare the neighbors off. When I game I like to be most comfortable and feeling repugnant on the outside.

My room ... always had always will

Sometimes it's the living room but mostly it's my bedroom. I also sometimes get to do it in my truck on some beach somewhere during work because I need to wait for a boat to show up.

my room

#7 Posted by ZolRoyce (846 posts) -

My room, I do everything from there, I even have my t.v. set up right beside my monitor to so I can game while watching something at the same time. I have achieved perfect laziness you guys.

Bedroom. I've only ever had a console hooked up in the living room a few times in my 20+ years as a hardcore gamer. Hardcore gamers keep it locked, in the bedroom, if you know what I mean, and I think you do.

I have a one room apartment, so... the "room" room? :P

I mean, I *could* set up in the community dining room, since the building is mostly empty right now, but... no.

My house has a great room connected to the kitchen. It's where my only TV is so I play there.

In my bedroom. For awhile my living room was a good alternative, especially when Borderlands 2 and Halo 4 were released. We would trot out our TVs, hook up our systems, and all play at once. I still wish we did that but roommates have come and gone so it's not the option it once was.

My gaming habits are often random and I tend not to play for long stretches. So I constantly switch between TV, PC, Xbox, and so on. It helps to have all my devices in one place rather than one or two in the living room.

At first I was going to say something about having a dedicated room just for gaming but that really just means it's my room. I also have a old tv hooked up on the front porch whenever I might want to play some NES games. (It's a enclosed porch so the tv won't actually get rained on.)

#13 Posted by pyromagnestir (4339 posts) -

My bedroom has an old crt tv and is home to my old consoles, Genesis N64 Xbox PS2 and GC w/ GBA player, plus the WII. And it's also typically where my laptop lives. The laptop used to travel with me wherever I went which let me play games wherever, but the battery died and so did my charger and a replacement battery almost immediately after I bought it (but not until a couple days after the return window had closed), and I ain't paying for another god damn battery. I also have a 3DS which sees most of its use in the bedroom.

The basement is where my HD consoles live, my 360 and one of my 2 PS3s. The Wii can quickly and easily get moved down to the basement if I feel like it, depending on the game I want to play.

The other PS3 is in the living room.

My bedroom.

Where I play my games, go on the computer, watch porn and vids, go to sleep. Pretty lame boring life I have for most part. All I do is go to the gym and go to work. I've lost a piece of my mind in the process.

BTW...I live in an apartment.

#15 Edited by Corevi (4991 posts) -

PC games in my room aswell as older consoles, HD systems in the living room since I don't have an HDMI port on the TV in my room.

My video game room.

#17 Edited by Cerberus3Dog (406 posts) -

I have a studio apartment. Bed, couch, desk, consoles, and PC all within ten feet of each other. Been playing my 3DS and WiiU on my bed which is awesome at night.

@tariqari: Playing a game outside in the garage sounds awesome on a breezy day! I've never even thought of that.

#18 Posted by Nux (2424 posts) -

My living room or my den if I want to play any PS2 games.

#19 Posted by Devil240Z (3439 posts) -

Well I am an adult so I do it in the living room.

#21 Posted by ninnanuam (282 posts) -

Study for PC, living room for new consoles, spare bedroom for old consoles.

#22 Posted by TheRealMoot (429 posts) -

Console games are played in my designated "Game Room" A small slightly dark room adorned with game posters, console boxes and shelves and shelves of games and a small couch for two people to share. PC games are played in the living room / kitchen combo because tiny house.

my cage, despite all my rage.

#24 Posted by MEATBALL (3490 posts) -

The theater room, this place we're renting has a nice square room, a nice couch, TV, surround system and consoles are set up in there. It's pretty great.

Man, I'd hate to have to use consoles in a bedroom.

#25 Posted by believer258 (12205 posts) -

Practically all of my gaming is done in my bedroom.

My bedroom. In there I have all my systems and my PC attached to the largest tv in my house and my sound system. I actually have a better sound system in my living room, but the tv is little smaller and it's not as comfortable down there.

#27 Posted by Hunter5024 (5968 posts) -

I have 2 rooms. The office/game room is where my big tv, recliner, pc, sound system, and modern consoles are set up. My bedroom has a CRT in it with a bunch of classic games hooked up. It's kinda nice having a room without much furniture, where I have to sit on my bed to play games. It reminds me of the first time I had a room to myself.

The roof, when I finally get my bed up there i'm never coming down. My room.

In the kitchbedininentrywathroom. It's a studio apartment.

#31 Edited by Dr_Monocle (124 posts) -

Bedroom. I also live in an apartment. I use my PS3/4 for Netflix purposes right before bed so it works well right now. I'll tell you what though, that Civilization outside with some lemonade sounds like the fucking life.

#32 Posted by Mijati (951 posts) -

Livingroom. Have my PC and consoles in here.

#33 Posted by Sammo21 (3553 posts) -

Living Room: consoles (Ps3, Ps4, WiiU)
Office: PC
Everywhere: Vita, 3DS, Laptop

I primarily play in the living room.

#34 Posted by SMTDante89 (2584 posts) -

My bedroom. It's where my consoles (PS3/4, Wii U), handhelds/tablet (3DS, Vita, Kindle Fire HD), laptop and my main HDTV are (I bought another for college so I wouldn't have to keep bringing my first one back and forth from home to college and back constantly, now it's in storage since I graduated)

#35 Posted by me3639 (1853 posts) -

Mostly in my den/office space. i have consoles in the living room but haven't been using them in a while.

#36 Edited by tariqari (431 posts) -

@i_stay_puft Well if it's any consolation, I sit out there in my pajamas and some of my neighbors do the same.

@shagge wow what kind of apartment complex has a community dining room? so you have like weekly communal dinners?

@riostarwind doing it on the porch sounds awesome. Sadly mine is only about 4 feet wide. Actually I guess it's not even porch then...more of an entry way.

@cerberus3dog I was just mentioning to someone the other day about how I rarely see anyone doing hobby-ish things in their garages. Whatever happened to garage bands?

It's kind of interesting to see the amount of gaming that goes on in a bedroom of all places. My preferred room of choice would be to have a gaming room, but that room now is taken by my office, which is strictly used for business. No gaming allowed there!

It's actually an inn. I'm an innkeeper here, but since I live here as well as work, it's basically an apartment for all intents and purposes. Before being an inn, it was a Victorian-style mansion, and due to it being a historical landmark it hasn't really been altered much (hence the dining room and other un-inn-like rooms).

#38 Posted by TrafalgarLaw (1381 posts) -

It used to be a bother to play in the living room so 4 years ago I moved everything to my bedroom. Been great since.

#39 Posted by HatKing (6114 posts) -

Lack thereof? Like, how many people are really playing video games outdoors?

#40 Posted by NapTimeSleeper (323 posts) -

I've pretty much always played video games in my bedroom though recently it's primarily in my brothers room.

#41 Edited by UltorOscariot (194 posts) -

Family room for current consoles, as my wife doesn't really use the television. Old machines hooked in the basement on a plasma TV that worked well in our apartment but the family room in the house we bought gets a lot more light and turns it into a mirror. PC usually dwells in our 3rd bedroom but if it's something my wife is interested in watching like The Walking Dead then it moves to the family room too.

#42 Posted by baka_shinji17 (343 posts) -

PC and consoles are in a spare room. I really wish I could play PS3 in the living room more often, cause that has the 42' HDTV but someone is always hogging it.

#43 Edited by TessaWracked (53 posts) -

I moved my gaming PC to the living room with my 360 and PS3, mostly to deter me from staying up all night playing games in the bedroom. I've still got a decent work computer in the bedroom, but I try really hard to just use it for work/art/music. Sometimes I really miss being so close to some PC games, especially for games that require a fair amount of reading.

#44 Posted by UitDeToekomst (749 posts) -

i would say at least 75% of my game playing occurs in my living room where there is an Xbox One, PS4 and Xbox 360. Another 20% is in my bedroom where I have PS3 and another 360. The final 5% would be elsewhere (mostly in the shitter), where I play my Vita.

Well that's just really cool.

@hatking Me for starters. I mean I did say gaming in general so even portables count.

#47 Posted by Bipa (122 posts) -

My bedroom for sure. Currently living in a share house and my housemates aren't that big into games. The one time I played some Mass Effect in the living room they sat there ripping on the game for 2 hours, after I got up and left they sat around watching reality TV shows all night.

#50 Posted by Hailinel (25205 posts) -

Well, I don't live in a house. Just a small condo. But my gaming set-up is all in the "living room" area of the main room, as it were.
