I've seen many gaming rooms/collections but this set of photos uploaded by donkey*kong from the Netherlands just blows everything away. Its like a museum!

Now this is interesting - all these games were produced by Nintendo?!

As for my history of game machines...

Sega Mega Drive
Super Nintendo
Game Boy
Mega CD (ugh!)
PC Engine Duo
NIntendo Entertainment System
Game Boy Advance
Playstation 2
Playstation 3
Nintendo DS
Nintendo DSi

And before all that I done gaming on the Commodore 64.
Whats your list of gaming machine history?

Was interesting reading the history of Nintendo and learned that between 1963 and 1968, Nintendo set up a taxi company, food company and even love hotels.

Nintendo started business back in 1887 where they originally made card games. It was the card games that grew Nintendo to a 900 yen per stock company.
By 1964 however, the card game market was saturated and people pretty much stopped buying card games. Nintendo's stock fell from that 900 to 60 yen.

Nintendo was deep in debt and was struggling to keep the business afloat in the Toy market which Bandai and Tomy dominated.
In 1970, Nintendo brought out a robotic toy hand called the Ultra Hand which I have annotated in image 86029. It was to sell over a million units. 

By 1975, Nintendo saw how popular the video game market was and began to experiment with various products. The rest is history which you can read at Wikipedia.

All these photos were submitted to where we would still like to see more photos of your rooms in the Room category.
It could have been my imagination but I heard Kotobukiya say that there maybe a few pages in Otacool 2 for a few room photos...

And my room needs more game machines in it ^^;
