Jealous: Father And Son Build Giant Basement Arcade

May 22, 2013


This is the giant basement arcade built by Redditor mertzlufft and his father. Mertzlufft sounds kind of braggy about it to which sucks because the last thing you want to hear from a person you're already jealous of is bragging. Have fun while it lasts, mertzlufft, but my dad and I built a rocketship. Let's see if your basement arcade will save you when the world is burning.

Hit the jump for seven more of all the games.








Thanks to RayleighJean, who wants to know how much they'd charge to throw a slumber party down there. Pizza included.

  • Brian Hooper

    The best man cave ever...possibly.

  • Rorial


    Nice to see works of art like this being preserved.

  • Thayne Knop

    No Skee Ball? That's unacceptable.

  • Deksam

    I remember all these games from the 80s, I spent thousands of quarters on all of these games, then I learned how to "jig" the quarters with some string and tape. =P

    So much electricity.

  • Chris

    It looks cool, but I"m sure most people would get bored of the old games pretty quickly.

  • John Whatmeworry

    You don't drink much do you?

  • Bubbubsky

    It must be nice to have money. I wonder what it's like.

  • Anna

    No pinball machines?

  • catallergy

    Seriously who wants a Dave and Busters in their basement?

  • Toby

    Dave and Busters doesn't have many decent videogames. They are all redemption or forgettable shooters/racers. This is an actual arcade and a real testament to what you can achieve if you work hard. Father and son should both be proud.

  • Turbidmist

    Are you being serious?

  • tonymost

    You obviously don't belong on Geekologie.

  • catallergy

    No, I can just recognize tacky garbage as tacky garbage. I don't need to pretend for the sake of "nerdom".

  • Hayley Prychun Rodgers

    This not tacky garbage, it's an arcade at home. I wont let modern "art" near my walls, I don't bash people who like it.

  • Wow! You're going to need a big van to steal all those.

  • Holy power bill, batman.

  • Tony

    I want to go to there..
