My wife and I recently remodeling our house with an extra 800sq ft. My daughter got a new larger room and I got my home office back again. The room is mostly filled with Star Wars toys but I do have my collection of consoles (minus the Odyssey 2 and SNES) setup on the TV. I'm able to play other stuff via emulation and a hdmi cable built into the wall. I've given my cartridges a place of honor in the room.

That's a nice set-up you got there. It looks like the "after" from one of those re-modeling TV shows.

My wife had a stroke of genious finding those racks. They fit the carts perfectly. $3 at Big Lots can't complain.

That Slave I looks a little out of place amidst all those TIE Fighters. :)
I can see the edges of another ship tucked behind the Interceptor but I can't make it out (an N-1?).
A very handsome setup (Dreamcast FTW) but mounting the cartridge racks under the window makes me nervous. I'm afraid of moisture getting in and causing mayhem.

I think it is a 42" Vizio. This was our old TV. We replaced it with a 50" LED. The office got the old TV. Playing Atari on a 42" screen is lots of fun!

I have two Zune HDs 16gb. I love my Zunes and wish Microsoft would have continued the line or at least made a Windows Phone version (with the phone). I wrote an Asteroids clone for it called Zune Rocks. Someday, I'll finish the Windows Phone version.

Next to the TIE interceptor is a EP3 Anakin Jedi Starfighter. No real theme there. I was just trying to cram in as much of my collection as I could. I just couldn't find a good place to put it.

I'm not worried about moisture getting in. That wall & window are only three months old. When we remodeled the house, 95% of the outer walls were moved or rebuilt for the new additions. In this case, we needed to move the office room about three feet in order to extend the hallway to the new master bedroom at the back of the house.No water is getting in there. ;)

Here are some pictures of the other side. Mostly Star Wars stuff.

Just posting an updated picture of my gaming setup. I've recently added my AV receiver to my console setup. All the systems are now plugged in via AV or s-video and output stereo to the receiver. The computer in the room also outputs to TV and stereo for netflix viewing. All the systems are plugged in except the Colecovision (which is getting a AV mod) and the Sega CDX. The Atari 5200 and 7800 both have s-video mods and have SD card cartridges plugged in.

Those bins are really well sized for the carts in them. I see similar ones at home depot in the (build a closet organizer) area all the time but never thought to do that.
