my gaming setup
A few people have posted pictures of their gaming setups. Well, someone asked to see mine today, so here it is. This is my desk, as seen from my webcam as far back as it would go (I don't have a camera).
What you might get a sense of is that my desk is a 6' x 3' hardwood monstrosity. I could jump on it and it wouldn't even creak; not bad for a $50 garage sale item. On the left is my 360 and the old CRT TV I have it hooked up to. Sadly, a TV upgrade is probably years down the line. The computer's a Dell Dimension 4800 (at least 3 years old... and acting like it, too) with a 3+ GHz Pentium 4 HT, 1G of RAM (DDR?), a Radeon 9800 Pro, and a nice 20" LCD. Instead of an HD-TV, I'll probably buy a new computer with one of those nice wrap-around widescreen monitors.
I couldn't get a clear picture of the games, but they are...
360: Crackdown, Culdcept Saga, Overlord, NCAA Football '08, Halo 3, Saints Row, Assassin's Creed, Oblivion, Fight Night, and Medal of Honor: Airborne.
PC: Sid Meier's Pirates, Hellgate: London, LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth 2: RotWK, both Star Wars: Battlefront games, Titan Quest, Diablo 2, Neverwinter Nights, Warcraft III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and two games being shipped here right now (The Sims 2 and Fable: The Lost Chapters).
There are plenty of PC games that I wish I had kept over the years, like Black & White and Command & Conquer: Generals, but I obviously have more than enough at the moment. I've traded in more than a few 360 games too now, including Mass Effect and Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
