The month of Halloween is here and…I’ve done nothing festive with my backdrop. Missed opportunity? Perhaps. Nevertheless, it’s time to run through a few new editions to the gaming room!
As part of my overall streaming redesign, the space that I play in has become an integral part of the viewing experience. Starting out with just a Snorlax beanbag chair on the floor, I’ve since decked out the wall behind me with decor that reflects my interests and life experiences within and outside of gaming. Always get a kick out of eagle-eyed viewers commenting on the wall, whether they have a shared appreciation for a piece or have a question about something on display.
Every few weeks, I swap in a few new pieces here-and-there. Partially because I want to get use out of the many pieces that have sat in storage since we moved into this house, and partially to keep the backdrop fresh for viewers. This time around, the wall has gone through its most dramatic shakeup yet.
(not my gaming setup)
For the last 14 years, I’ve had the benefit of having a pretty sweet space to use for my gaming setup. All my stuff was set up in my parent’s basement, where I had a lot of space for shelving, a big TV and enough room should I need to entertain a number of people with video games.
Now that Steff and I are in our condo, I’m going to have to downsize, which I’m fine with. I’ll gladly reduce the size of my gaming space for the other benefits available to Steff and I in our new life. While my setup is far from complete, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek at what I’m working with for the time being.
