Fans of retro gaming prepare to be inspired. Self-confessed gaming obsessive Heidi’s room is a shrine to retro games and it’s utterly perfect.
She’s been collecting games, consoles and gaming memorabilia since 2002 and has amassed an incredible collection. Not only does she manage to display them so they look like art, but she sources vintage furniture from the 70s and 80s for the room, so the entire thing is a visual feast.
This is Heidi. She has always loved gaming but wasn’t allowed to own any as a child – so she’s making up for it now.
She’s got a total of 20 TV screens in the room.
She’s been collecting since 2002 and now has 4,600 games.
Including PC Engine games neatly filed.
She’s got a Tetris light too… and a Pac-Man ghost floor mat.

And the games are all perfectly categorised and neatly stored.
So there you are. Can’t help wondering how long it takes to dust it, but it’s cool AF.
