Quoted from Pinkitten:
For all you electricians and experts who built and wired their own gamerooms out there, can you recommend the proper electrical setup for a basement with 15-16 pins and several other electrical devices (toppers, a tv, etc.)? I bought this house in 2009, built in 1995, before I was a collector. The current system can support almost all the games, but if I turn on all of them, I blow a fuse. I’m concerned I’m asking too much of the current system, no doubt designed for average household use. If I want an electrician to boost the electrical, what would you suggest I step up to? Thank you!

Ideally you want 20 amp circuits set up with no more than 5 pins on a circuit. If you have existing 15 amp circuits, that's fine too, just figure maybe only 4 pins per. The issue you're going to have is getting those circuits to where they need to be. It appears you have a suspended ceiling which should help immensely, but the only way to get answers to your questions is to have a contractor look at your situation and advise you. He can see what you have now, and figure out what it'll take to get added circuits to the room.
