The older we get, the more our bedrooms transform from our personal hang out spots to places strictly for sleeping. However, one New York man decided to return to his youth by creating a bedroom that was both fun and practical. With $32,000 and an appetite for excitement, Chris Kooluris decided to turn his bedroom into a full on 80s style arcade. According to Kooluris, he drew his inspiration from a sci-fi novel titled “Ready Player One,” and decided that the project would be well worth it. In his bedroom arcade, Kooluris included several classic games including Pac-Man and Street Fighter. Unfortunately,  Kooluris lost his fiancé in the process of building his arcade, and says that “it’s hard to enjoy the room” without her. Check out these photos of Chris Kooluris’ arcade bedroom.
