Just curious... Does anyone keep games in the living room? The thought has crossed my mind, but I don't think I have the guts!!! Has anyone ever pulled it off?
I have my games downstairs in a 'gameroom' that I built. I have been to houses where the games are in the living room right when you walk in the house. Along with a pool-table and such. I guess to hold back on moving stuff up and down stairs it is ok, but I don't think I would have a games room in the living room, or in the room right when you walk in the house. It just doesn't look right to me anyways.
You HAVE to have a little bar and fridge as well, maybe some chairs, and that really doesn't work in the living room I don't think!
Pinballs are best kept in a nice game room. Get a few pins, 1 old school arcade, pool table and a dart board!! Thats the way to rock. Also the small mini bar is not a bad idea. If your single, who cares. Put a pin in the kitchen if you like. Whats better then pinball and Pancakes.
Depends on how they are positioned, the space they occupy, etc. I have pins all over my house since I have no dedicated game room. Even if I had a game room I would spread them into sections since I am not a big fan of the arcade look. But I totally respect people who like that look, its just not for me. Certian pins look better in different sections of the house. I think they are Art and should be displayed as. Newer sterns I do not consider Art but I would any new JPOP or WOZ machine.
I also have 6 pinball machines in the living room, that is, there is an extra space of 3x8 meters besides the living of 10x6. My husband don't mind by the way... He is the technician if necessary
I think I'm in Love
PS....I have three in my living room and currently unattached
We have 4 pins and an asteroids deluxe in our living room so far. Our living room or I guess you could call it a great room is rather large. He is just lucky I love this hobby as much as he does. See, not all wives are the devil. We are actually debating whether or not to renovate the garage into the "game room" or add on to the sun room that is just off the living room turning it into the "game room". Even then I think we will keep a few in the living room once we renovate it. Its gonna be a theatre style theme and I think the pins will add to it.

You haven't see a Transformers LE then I assume. My deception LE with topper is one of hte most beautiful of my 20 pins in my gameroom. As for WoZ / JPOP comment, yes these sound like they'll be great. I preordered each. However, we have no idea if they'll really look good or not. None exist.
Yes, I have got five games in my living room (currently TZ, MM, WOF, LOTR and Shrek). I tried to fit in six games in there, but it got just a little too cramped! I also have two older games upstairs in a spare bedroom. I'm currently contemplating how to get my latest addition, a Bally Space Invaders up there to join them...
Oh yes, I am single by the way.
Yes, in the back of my "entertainment" living room, I've got my two pins and a kegerator!

If played those pins with the kegorator in the middle I may grow weeds around my ankles cause there lies all you need. But then again may have to use the restroom at some point.
