Guy transforms apartment into an arcade


(From Game Spot) Chris Kooluris realized a fantasy when he converted his apartment into an arcade. Unfortunately, that reality cost him a fiancée.

The 37-year-old Kooluris decided to sell his furniture -including his bed- in order to spend $26,000 transforming his apartment into an arcade that consists of games like Pac-Man, Punch-Out, and Street Fighter II.

He did this after unsuccessfully trying to sell his Manhattan apartment when he moved into his fiancee’s apartment in Brooklyn.

He began to feel uncomfortable living with her and her things, and after reading the Ernest Cline sci-fi novel Ready Player One, he had an epiphany of sorts.

“The book just blew me away,” he said. “It awakened something in me and I started thinking that I can’t believe I’m not surrounded by all these things that I grew up loving.”

In the process of creating an apartment filled with not just arcade games, but Transformers action figures, a futon with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles blankets, candy dispensers, and a high-score board, his fiancée decided to leave him.

Kooluris, who is a senior vice president of PR company Weber Shandwick, invites friends over regularly to enjoy his creation, but he finds himself enjoying it less because of his newfound single status.
