GAME ROOM TOUR – 7,000 Games + 50 Systems – METAL JESUS ROCKS


– Hey guys, Metal Jesus here, and today I am excited to bring you my updated game room tour. Now I have a little over
seven thousand games and also over 50 different systems, and you guys have certainly
noticed in my videos that as the collection has grown, I have rearranged and
updated my game room, and I’m happy to show you that today. But I wanna be clear. This video is not about me
bragging about what I have, because there are many
collectors out there that have much larger
collections than I do. But what I love about game room tours is that it gives you a bit of insight into the person who collects and also what they’re passionate about, and you can also pick
up some tips and tricks to use in your own game room. Let’s take a look. (metal music) Let’s start on the side of my game room that you guys typically don’t get to see in my videos, and the reason
for that is fairly simple. This little alcove here just
doesn’t have a lot of room for me to have lights. You’ll notice two doors. One of them goes outside to my back yard, and the other goes to the bathroom. But as the camera swings around here, you’ll see a couple bookcases. I have some games in there, but I also have a tribute to some of the villains in Star Wars. And then directly below that are all of my loose N64
cartridges with custom labels. They look great, as well as some Amiibos. But the remainder of this bookcase has all original Xbox games and probably my most valuable one which is an import
called Metal Wolf Chaos. To the right of that, I
have another small bookcase which holds my Sega Master System games as well as a few more Amiibos on top. But really this is designed to show some of the few Master
System games that I have in my collection, at least in box. But really the pride and joy
of the Master System collection has to be this Wonder Boy
The Dragon’s Trap press kit. So amazing. (metal music) Now let’s swing the camera back
towards this other wall here and see how that is all set up. So this Ikea bookcase here focuses really on two different systems. You’ll see here that I start with the PSP, which is one of my larger
console collections, I love collecting for it, as well as some highlights
from my PSP collection including the original
box for Summon Night 5. I believe this is mail order only. And then directly below my PSP collection is my Playstation 3 collection, another system that is
just a joy to collect for, so many great games. Many people have asked where
I got these display signs at, and I got them from rosecoloredgaming.com. These acrylic signs are
surprisingly high quality. They look fantastic. You’re gonna see more products
from rosecoloredgaming.com in a little bit in my game room because they make all of the
handheld stands that I use. Here is my JVC, which is
a flat CRT television, perfect for really old consoles and when you wanna play light gun games. To the left of the
television is some storage where I put all of my handhelds that I’m either not displaying or maybe I just don’t play very often. Mostly this is a lot of duplicates. You’ll see multiple versions
of the Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color, also
several PSPs living here. Underneath that CRT television
are a bunch of systems that are really optimized for it. In the left hand corner
you have a DVD player. Underneath that you have an Intellivision. You also have the Atari 7800, the ColecoVision, the PlayStation 1, the TurboGrafx-16, also the Neo-Geo CD. This TV is perfect for systems that either have just the
yellow composite or RF. On the left side of this Ikea unit, I have my Atari 5200,
and then on the right I store controllers, cables, adapters, as well as some random VHS
cassettes that I might watch and just other random stuff. (metal music) Moving on to the computer desk, there’s a bunch of stuff going on here, including my working Commodore 128 as well as the mobile Commodore 64 which is a SX-64, fairly rare, and who can forget the Virtual Boy. There is a fully modded
Atari 800XL computer as well as a mish mash of stuff, including ColecoVision
cartridges, Virtual Boy games, and even some Atari Starpath
Supercharger cassettes. On the left side I have
some random PC games including the Ultima series, one of my favorites to collect for. And above that I have
my shrine to Fallout. I love the Fallout series. And of course I do have a crusty, and I mean crusty, old Windows PC. This is an Athlon single-core processor. Works great though. Also underneath this desk
are some hefty storage bins where I keep extra cables, power strips, power cords, all of that stuff. Here on the wall is the
original painting my wife did of my Metal Jesus Rocks logo as well as my complete copy of EarthBound, one of the rarer Super Nintendo games in my collection for sure. And that copy of EarthBound is sitting on an Ikea display case. In there I have special stuff, like the prototype N64 disc drive that was never released in the US as well as some action figures that come with collector’s editions. And then down here’s kind of interesting. This is a little mish
mash of random stuff. I love owning that
Atari Walkman prototype. There’s that one-of-a-kind Contra NES custom-painted controller, and then two press kits from Sony, Ico and also Gran Turismo 3. And then on the lower shelf,
that copy of Stonekeep. I always thought that was a cool box. As well as Wing Commander 1, and it’s signed by Chris
Roberts, the creator of the game. (metal music) Let’s take you guys back to a, maybe a view you’re more familiar with, especially with my videos. A new thing I’ve added on this side of the game room are these colored LEDs. And I’ve gotta be honest with you, most of the time when I’m down here, I’m dialing in some sort
of color to my game room. It looks fantastic. Most of you have noticed
that I’ve upgraded my couch. This is a Ikea couch. Yes I buy a lot of Ikea
’cause it’s cheap and good. And then I thought well,
let’s upgrade the pillows, so I reached out to a company
called retromodding.com, and they make these really
cool video game themed pillows. They’re perfect. In front of that, I have
an Ikea coffee table, and it works really well, and you can hide stuff underneath it including all of my Nintendo controllers. Now the ones I’m not
using I put in Ziploc bags to keep them relatively dust free. So let’s walk around this
side of the room a bit. Behind the couch sits my
awesome MAME Arcade cabinet. If you’ve been watching
my channel for a while, you know that my buddy and
I, Drunken Master Paul, bought this beat up Centipede machine, took it home, stripped it, and made it into this
awesome emulator machine. However in the last year we
got a completely brand new computer in here running Windows 10 and then upgraded the
software to Launch Box. And I’ve gotta tell you,
this is the ultimate stand up MAME Arcade Cab. I love it. Behind the arcade machine
in the cubbyhole there is a bookcase that holds
a bunch of random stuff including 3Dio games, PlayStation
4 games, Xbox 360 games, and even PSP UMDs down below. And then I put these Target storage bins kind of wherever I can fit them. This is the little odds and ends that you just don’t know where
else to put ’em, you know. They gotta go somewhere. At the bottom of this
bookcase are all my Wii and Wii U games, and then above that are my PlayStation 2 games. Here are some of the more unusual or rare PlayStation 2 games that I own. Although to be honest, there
are so many great games on this system, and I
love collecting for it. It’s one of my larger collections. In this bookcase, let’s
start with the PlayStation 1, another system that I think
is so much fun to collect for. And here are some of the more
rare or maybe unusual titles in my collection. Below that I have a few boxed N64 games sitting next to my EverDrive collection. And these are amazing. These are basically
cartridges that are modified to take SD cards so you can
run ROMs on real hardware. So well made, so cool. And then below that is my
boxed Genesis collection. It’s coming along. It’s pretty decent. I’ve learned over time with
so many different consoles and so many different power adapters that it really helps to label them so that you can keep them straight, ’cause I don’t always
have them plugged in. I don’t even have a way to
plug them all in at once, and this really helps. (metal music) Thankfully it’s pretty easy
to get used Ikea furniture off of sites like Craigslist, which is exactly what I’ve
done in almost every instance. I typically only pay about $50 per piece. Here is my Nintendo 64. Now what’s cool about that is
that it has the ultra HD mod, which means it has HDMI out. Looks beautiful. And then next to it is the Sega CDX. It’s a mix of the Genesis and the Sega CD all in one small package. Of course every game
room needs an Atari 2600, Super Nintendo, and
then also the Game Cube with the Game Boy player underneath it. Below that, we have the
Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, Genesis with the power base converter, and of course the Master system. And then tucked away below, we have the PlayStation
1, the NES Top Loader, and Panasonic 3DO. To the right of that is the original NES. And then we have a PlayStation
2, but that is the fat model. And then I store some
random stuff I might need, like pens and markers. And in that wicker basket
there are some remotes for the different televisions. And when you have cartridges,
you need to clean ’em and you need to repair stuff,
so here are some 1 Up Cards as well as other drawers
filled with tools, batteries, tacks, tape,
all sorts of random stuff, power supplies for the 3DS. Here in these drawers is where I store all the loose Genesis carts. I have a lot of those, lot of
great games on that system. On the other side is where I store all the other loose cartridges, including Atari 800XL and Commodore 64. And of course above all
that is the beginning of my big box PC collection. Now as you can imagine,
collecting big box PC games is quite a challenge
because there are, what, 30 years worth of games across
so many different systems, and all of the boxes
are completely different as far as size goes. I mean, there’s very little standard which makes it really cool to collect for, but also a challenge to store. And I’m showing you some
of my favorites here, including Half-Life 2. This is an unusual one that
comes with actually a t-shirt. But there’s so much to collect. And by the way, when I say PC, I include really anything
that’s a personal computer. That includes Commodore
64, Amiga, Atari ST, MS DOS, you get the picture. And it wouldn’t be a proper
game room without a turntable. I recently upgraded my
turntable to this TEAC TN-300. Beautiful turntable, sounds fantastic. I have a little over 450 albums, but I don’t keep all of
those in my game room. What I do is I pick out the 30 that I’m currently
listening to and bring those and sit them right here so that
I have easy access to them. On this side of the game room, I do have an HD television. Now it’s not the biggest in
the world, but that’s okay because I wasn’t looking
for something really big, primarily because the
couch is so close to this. And it honestly, it works great. I only paid a hundred dollars for it off of Craigslist, used. Here’s some random artwork
that I slapped on the wall, including my silver play
button that I got from YouTube for having a hundred thousand subscribers. I reserve this shelf to
kinda highlight parts of my collection that are
kind of weird or interesting. It changes all the time. You’ll see it change in
the background of my videos every once in a while just
’cause I get bored with it. Underneath that television
are some more consoles, including the Wii with
the custom skin on it. I kinda like that skin. Next to that is the Retron 5. That is a clone system that does a bunch of different systems
that I use all the time for doing game capture footage. Recently I got the Analogue NT Mini. This is like, I guess you could call it the Ferrari of clone systems. It is really well-built,
really high quality. It was actually donated to me by the company that makes them. They wanted to support my channel and have better looking video. I was stunned that they did
that ’cause they are not cheap. I was very grateful. I love me some PS2.
Here’s my original slim. I’ve played this a ton over the years. It’s one of my favorite consoles. And then recently I’ve picked up this PS3. This is the 60 gig version
that has a PS2 built into it. Pretty awesome. I also have a Wii U as well
as an Xbox 360 of course, and then my beloved original Xbox. Love that system. Below that, I have some more storage. In here I put all of my loose Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, and Game
Boy Color games in here. It’s completely jumbled, but it works. On the right side, you’ll
notice that I’ve put all of my Microsoft controllers as well as my Sony controllers in there. You have so many options for storage in these Ikea entertainment centers. It’s a reason why I have three of them. All of these consoles
are connected by a series of boxes and switches. Now if you wanna get into
the details of how I do this, I have a dedicated video
on my channel about it. All of my audio I push through
this Mackie mixing board, including the turntable. The speakers I use are these
KRK V6 powered studio monitors. Now this is probably overkill,
but it sounds fantastic. (metal music) Moving on, let’s talk
about this wall-o-games. Many, many games jammed
into these two bookshelves. I had some room at the top here, so I put my original Xbox 360
with the E3 2005 faceplate, some Halo figures, and then
here is the Gears of War 3 vault add on for the Xbox 360 slim. It actually glows red. Here is the bulk of my big
box PC game collection. And it’s so nice to finally have room to actually get these games
and be able to display them, to collect them. I mean, it’s such a dream. And so I’ve been going after games that I used to love
playing back in the day and then also get some
games that I’ve always been kind of curious about,
games that I maybe saw in a magazine or heard about. It’s been awesome to
just dive deep into it and have the room to actually do it. Also, being an ex Sierra employee, one of my goals over the last couple years was to really beef up my
Sierra online game collection, and thankfully I’ve been able to do that. Although prices are starting to rise. A lot of people have
very nostalgic feelings for many of these games, and
you’re starting to see them not get crazy like console prices, but you’re starting to
see them sell for 40, 50, a hundred dollars, two hundred dollars, depending on whether it was really popular or maybe people want it
because it’s a rare RPG, things like that. And next to the PC games,
we have a mish mash of a little of everything. At the top I have some room, so I put some indy box releases up there as well as Commodore 64
games that I got in a lot and didn’t know where
else to put ’em, honestly. In these cubbyholes, you
have a bunch of stuff: NES, Super NES, box games, you name it. Now, one thing I wanna
mention here is that you’ll notice these are fairly deep, and I probably should have
mentioned this sooner, but a lot of these actually are doubled up or they have stuff behind them. You can see here that I
have room for box NES games as well as a Lynx back there
and then also a SupaBoy S. Speaking of the Lynx, here it
is with a bunch of cartridges. Nobody really talks about this system. I should probably do a buying guide on it. I do have a modest Sega CD collection thanks to a, I hate to say
it, but a Craigslist haul that I did a couple years ago. Got lucky, got ’em cheap. Here is my PlayStation Vita collection. Notice it’s a couple layers deep there. Yes, there are games on the Vita. And then here are the
first 22 limited run games. My Sega Saturn collection is a mix of North American releases
and also Japanese imports. I think if you’re gonna
seriously collect for the Saturn you’re probably gonna
wanna get into the imports because they’ve got so many more than us. And then here are my Dreamcast games, and it’s a pretty respectable collection. I have so many, again you have to kinda push them in the back here. Here are some highlights
from my Game Cube collection. Now I only have about 80
games for that console, but I have a lot of the heavy hitters. For my Game Boy Advance, I
have about 140 games for that. Here are some of my favorites. And then recently I’ve been
collecting Famicom games. They’re pretty cheap, and I
love those colored cartridges. I mentioned Rose Colored
Gaming previously, now they’re they ones that
make all of these custom stands for all of these handhelds. Each one of them is
crafted to perfectly fit the particular model, and some of them actually have the labeling on the front. And what’s cool is that
they even have labels for some of the special
editions of the handhelds, like this Yoshi one right here. They’re very high quality. I absolutely love them,
highly recommended. Alright, getting back to the
games, here are my DS games. And as you can see, again I
have a pretty decent collection. It’s nowhere near complete,
but I’m getting all the ones that I wanna actually own and play. For some systems I don’t
mind collecting loose carts. In these drawers you’ll see a random mix of Game Gear, Neo-Geo
Pocket, stuff like that. You may have noticed throughout this video sitting on surfaces are
these little records. These are actually coasters.
They’re drink coasters. I was looking for something
that was actually kind of cool and interesting but still
worked as a coaster. I love these because the
labels are also custom as well and they have little sayings on them. In the middle of the
room, behind the camera where you guys typically don’t see, I have a couple different
storage options here. This is where I keep
most of my arcade sticks for the different systems. They’re fairly big, and so
they need a lot of room, and this works pretty well. And then behind that,
underneath my staircase, I have a bit more deep storage. This is stuff like duplicate systems, gaming magazines, of which
I have hundreds of them, and also that massive Steel Battalion box. And speaking of deep storage, also in my basement I have the
rest of my record collection right there and then all my box systems and just more random stuff, including a storage room
that is a complete disaster, and it’s that way because often I’m like, don’t I have that
particular game or system and it’s buried in the back
somewhere, pull things out. Yeah, I need to reorganize
this thing badly. But what about modern systems? Well, upstairs in my living
room I have a PlayStation 4 Pro. I have another PS3 that I play a lot. Then yes, I do have the Nintendo Switch. So this is my updated game room, and as you can tell, I am
absolutely in love with this room. I am so lucky. So much of my personality
and my passion is down here, and it’s just a dream to finally
have a game room like this. It’s pretty cool to have my friends over, sit on the couch, play
games, listen to music, and also shoot YouTube videos. Another thing I wanna
mention though is that many of the games and also
the systems in my collection have been donated by
awesome viewers like you. I really appreciate that. Your games and your
systems are in a good home. Now I realize this was a very
quick tour of a lot of stuff, so if you have questions
about a particular thing you saw in the video or maybe
you would like to see me focus and make a video about a
specific part of my collection, love to hear about it down
in the comments below. As always guys, I wanna thank
you for watching my channel. Thank you for subscribing, and take care. Some of you are probably
wondering where I got the music for this video. Well I would love to tell
you that it is my music, but no, I am not that good on guitar. Instead, I reach out to the professionals, and the guy that did the music for this, his name is Ethan
Meixsell, M-E-I-X-S-E-L-L. He’s a cool mix of Steve
Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Joe Satriani, so
definitely check him out if you like instrumental
guitar rock like that. Alright guys, have a good day.
